Winter is a good time to cuddle up on the sofa, a glass of wine at your side and a good book in your hands/kindle/phone/iPad. Here are a few of my recent reads – in no particular order:
Call the Midwife by Jennifer Worth.
I’ve read two of Jennifer Worth’s books now. They’re a touch grittier than the TV series, and probably more realistic. I still imagine them all buzzing around on their bikes, though!
Perfect Bones by AJ Waines
I have a large collection of Alison Waines’ books on my kindle, and I’m looking forward to adding to it this summer. Perfect Bones is the latest Dr. Samantha Willerby book, and she’s working under time pressure this time. Excellent writing and a great plot.
Chergui’s Child by Jane Riddell
I met Jane Riddell a few weeks ago in a Swiss café, and we exchanged writing life stories and books. I hope she enjoyed Chosen Child as much as I enjoyed Chergui’s Child. If you like a great story with a mystery at its heart and a large chunk of travel involved, try this one!
Another Love by Amanda Prowse
This was my first Amanda Prowse book, but it won’t be the last. A fabulous family drama centring around a serious issue – the ‘other love’ is in a bottle. Highly recommended.
The Devil You Know by Terry Tyler
As always, Terry Tyler’s characters come across as living, breathing people, and there’s a whole clutch of them in this book. They don’t know each other, but they all suspect a loved one of being a killer. And one of them is right… Very cleverly done!
Book news: my novellas are trundling along nicely – I’ve spotted them as 1-4 in their category a couple of times now, though never in the right order!
Next time, I’ll be sharing some news about my coming book Stolen Sister, so tune in for a few pics of sunny Glasgow!
