Hello and welcome along to my stop on the blog tour for Maxine Barry’s “Imposters in Paradise”.  Today I have the pleasure of sharing a Q&A with the author, so without further ado lets get to the questions!

 

What is the first book you remember reading or having read to you?

Alice in Wonderland – my father reading it to me when I was ill.

Who is your favourite literary character?

Heathcliffe, from Wuthering Heights! (But Hercule Poirot, Nero Wolfe and Maud Silver all run him a close second.)

Which book have you always meant to get around to reading, but still not read?

There aren’t any – if I want to read a book, I make sure I read it.

If you could only take one book with you on a desert island, which would it be?

The Bible.  If I was stranded alone on a desert island, I’d probably need it!

What are you currently reading?

Elizabeth Peters – I love the Amelia Peabody/Egyptian historical crime series.

Who would be at your dream dinner party (alive, dead or fictional)?

Crikey! Now I’ve got to think. Alan Rickman (good-looking, talented and interesting,) Salvadore Dali (don’t claim to understand surrealism in art, but I’d like to), Agatha Christie (she inspired me to write my crime novels, any of the Bronte sisters (goes without saying) Jane Austen (ditto) David Tennant (he’s just gorgeous and I’ve always loved Doctor Who) and … from the     fictional pantheon … hmm … probably Dorothy L Sayer’s fictional sleuths Lord Peter Wymsey and Harriet Vane (she was an Oxford woman!)

What’s the best advice you have ever received?

Get an agent (literary), as regards my working life. Generally – always look right, then left, then right again when crossing the road!

What’s the worst advice you have ever received?

Don’t get mad, get even.

Who is your hero or heroine (real or fictional)?

Crikey again. Now I REALLY have to think! Hereward the Wake springs immediately to mind – you have to love an Anglo-Saxon rebel defying the Norman conquerors – and winning! As does Mother Theresa.  And every medical doctor who’s ever lived who’s played a part in curing diseases.  There are just so many.  Fictionally, I have the same problem.  In the criminal field,  I love everyone from Sherlock Holmes down to Flavia da Luce! Romantically, the same problem.  From Elizabeth Bennett (you’ve got to admire a woman  with a hard head and clear eye) to Catherine Earnshaw (what’s life without passion?) and possibly any of the heroines of my own novels.

A huge thank you to Maxine for joining me today and answering those questions, it was lovely chatting with you.

But with a handsome helicopter pilot staying next door, Leah can’t help but think she might have a few distractions of her own to deal with…

Description:

A serial killer texts his victims first. A detective vows revenge. He comes after her.

In the chill of an October night, Detective Kerri Blasco is called to a bizarre murder scene. Leda Winfield, a young volunteer for the homeless, has been shot. Her cell phone displays the frightening text, WATCHING YOU, and into her back, hideously pushed with a hat pin, is a note with the same awful message. Leda’s socialite family and friends insist that no one would have wanted to harm her, but Kerri isn’t convinced.

Until another random young woman is killed in the same way. Kerri and her team profile a monstrous killer who enjoys terrifying his victims before stalking and killing them. But how does he get their phone numbers?

Kerri soon finds that the killer is after her, too, and that the key to finding him may just be in the homeless shelter. When the body count rises, she vows to stop the madman – even if it means battling her own personal trauma, risking her job, her love relationship with her boss Alex Brand, and her life.

Description:

The last time Tess de Vere saw William Benson she was a law student on work experience. He was a twenty-one year old, led from the dock of the Old Bailey to begin a life sentence for murder. He’d said he was innocent. She’d believed him.

Sixteen years later Tess overhears a couple of hacks mocking a newcomer to the London Bar, a no-hoper with a murder conviction, running his own show from an old fishmonger’s in Spitalfields. That night she walks back into Benson’s life. The price of his rehabilitation – and access to the Bar – is an admission of guilt to the killing of Paul Harbeton, whose family have vowed revenge. He’s an outcast. The government wants to shut him down and no solicitor will instruct him. But he’s subsidised by a mystery benefactor and a desperate woman has turned to him for help: Sarah Collingstone, mother of a child with special needs, accused of slaying her wealthy lover. It’s a hopeless case and the murder trial, Benson’s first, starts in four days. The evidence is overwhelming but like Benson long ago, she swears she’s innocent. Tess joins the defence team, determined to help Benson survive. But as Benson follows the twists and turns in the courtroom, Tess embarks upon a secret investigation of her own, determined to uncover the truth behind the death of Paul Harbeton on a lonely night in Soho.

True to life, fast-paced and absolutely compelling, Summary Justice introduces a new series of courtroom dramas featuring two maverick lawyers driven to fight injustice at any cost.

My Thoughts & Review:

“Summary Justice” is a legal thriller with a difference, the criminal defence barrister has a criminal conviction and is out on licence.  Perhaps it’s through ignorance, but I always assumed that if a person possessed a criminal conviction they would not be permitted to practice law , especially when that conviction was for murder.  However in this novel it is explained that this is not necessarily the case and more so it is vital to the plot.

When I started reading this book I initially thought I would read a chapter or two to see what I thought, perhaps finish the ironing and do some knitting….I underestimated the pull of this book.  From the opening chapters I was utterly hooked by the the intricately woven plot, clever storytelling and fantastic characters.

William Benson is an interesting character, having served a custodial sentence before being released on license, he had all the time he needed to study the complexities of law to enable him to step towards a career in this field, the major issue for him being access to the Bar.  His passion for law and determination to succeed is great reading, as is his performance in court – if they ever decide to turn this into a tv series I would absolutely love to see that played out!  His inner struggles make him more endearing towards the reader, feeling some sympathy towards his plight but at the same time, without concrete proof of his innocence the reader cannot be entirely sympathetic as there is still a chance he may be a murderer.
Tess de Vere is also very interesting, she wants to do the right thing, fight the good fight and believe the best in some people but this is not always the case and her wariness towards Benson causes her to reinvestigate his case to find out whether he really is as innocent as he told her 16 years ago.

I found the pace of this book relentless, in a good way of course.  I wanted to keep reading to find out what happened with the case, what happened with Benson (both professionally and personally) and how the tale would unravel.  There were plenty of red herrings to keep me guessing along the way and I absolutely loved it!

Now I just have to hope that there will be another book out soon, billed as a “new series of courtroom dramas featuring two maverick lawyers driven to fight injustice at any cost” means we should have more fantastic books to come, and I cannot wait!

My thanks to the publisher for a copy of this book to read and review.

Hello and happy Friday!  And seeing as it’s Friday, that means its time to share another post to celebrate Indie Publishing, this time it’s Elliott & Thompson in the spotlight!   Today I am honoured to share a truly magnificent book, ” Foxes Unearthed: A Story of Love and Loathing in Modern Britain” by Lucy Jones.


Description:

9781783963041

 

As one of the largest predators left in Britain, the fox is captivating: a comfortably familiar figure in our country landscapes; an intriguing flash of bright-eyed wildness in our towns.

Yet no other animal attracts such controversy, has provoked more column inches or been so ambiguously woven into our culture over centuries, perceived variously as a beautiful animal, a cunning rogue, a vicious pest and a worthy foe. As well as being the most ubiquitous of wild animals, it is also the least understood.

In Foxes Unearthed Lucy Jones investigates the truth about foxes in a media landscape that often carries complex agendas. Delving into fact, fiction, folklore and her own family history, Lucy travels the length of Britain to find out first-hand why these animals incite such passionate emotions, revealing our rich and complex relationship with one of our most loved – and most vilified – wild animals. This compelling narrative adds much-needed depth to the debate on foxes, asking what our attitudes towards the red fox say about us and, ultimately, about our relationship with the natural world.

My Thoughts & Review:

One look at the cover of this book was enough to ensnare my attention, it’s striking  and beautiful, the fox head that dominates the cover is bewitching.  I don’t normally make mention of the artwork on the cover of a book, loathe as I am to admit that my head will  be turned by a beguiling cover but in this case I am more than willing to make an exception.

When I first picked up this book to read I had no preconceived notion of the author or solid opinion of her subject.  Foxes have always been part of the rural and urban landscape as far as I was aware and a creature that I have only ever glimpsed briefly but  thought of as inquisitive and intelligent.  The exploration of the relationship between humans and foxes is fascinating reading and written well so that this does not read as “nature textbook” but more as a collection of information, both fact and fiction.  The level of detail that Lucy Jones has put into this book is immense, it is obvious from the writing that numerous hours have been spent researching the topic at hand, and speaking with several different sources to share their knowledge and opinions.  Throughout the book she does her best to remain impartial when speaking about both sides of any argument.

Inclusion of fox appearances in literature makes for enjoyable reading, and in my case was a great point of discussion with others, trying to name what fox characters we could remember in books from childhood as well as in adulthood, and trying to pinpoint the differences between the representations.

I found that this was a book I read at my leisure, relishing the fact that I could dip in and out of this between other books and become immersed in details of fact and fable, learn details about fox hunting and hunt saboteurs that I had little knowledge about.  Such was the interest that I had in this book, I regularly paused reading to discuss points with my husband, in once instance asking whether he had ever heard the call of a fox in the dead of night, because I can’t say that I’m aware of having heard it myself.  An absolutely fascinating read and one that has changed my perception of foxes somewhat.

After She's Gone - cover

Published: 16 March 2017

Copy via by Thick as Thieves Book Publicity & Promo and Netgalley

 

Description:

Lori Golden’s family has had more than its fair share of troubles. But through it all, Lori and her sister, Jessie, have always supported each other. Then Jessie is killed. And Lori’s world turns upside down.

Devastated, Lori struggles to cope with her loss, and to learn to live in a world without her bright, bubbly sister by her side. Around her, her already fractured family starts to fall apart. And as Lori and her mother try to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives, secrets long thought buried are coming painfully to light.

Faced with the unthinkable, Lori is forced to ask herself how well she really knows those who are left behind…

My Thoughts & Review:

Have you ever started reading a book and found that you’re analysing each character, trying to get one step ahead of the author to see if you’re right?  “After She’s Gone” is one of those books that instantly had my brain working, who could be trusted, who was telling lies, what secrets are lurking in the shadows were all things running through my head as I worked my way through this novel.

Following the death of Jessie Golden, her family descends into a chaotic state of disbelief and heartbreaking grief.  Lori Golden, is devastated by the loss of her younger sister and inturn becomes suspicious of those around her.
Each character in this novel has a secret of some sort, and slowly Maggie James leads the reader to the truth with a well baited breadcrumb trail.  Whilst explanations are offered  at timely intervals, it’s hard for the reader not to jump ahead to a “perfect solution”, only to have that illusion shattered by another revelation in the narrative.  That’s all I really want to say about the plot, fearing I will let something slip about whodunnit or why!

Interesting characters always make for good reading, and I enjoyed seeing how well the emotions and thoughts of each was described.  From Spencer’s paranoia to Lori’s devastation there is enough detail to allow the reader to take from this book what they want, exploring the grief, anger, despair and helplessness of the characters.

As I was reading this, I was aware that there was a air of malevolence lurking, something just out of reach that I couldn’t quite put my finger on.  This helped add to the overall tension in the plot and kept me reading on to find out where the story was headed.

A quick and enjoyable read with the right amount of suspicion to keep a reader guessing.

You can buy a copy of “After She Was Gone” via Amazon here.

 

About the Author:

Before turning her hand to writing, Maggie worked mainly as an accountant, with a diversion into practising as a nutritional therapist. Diet and health remain high on her list of interests, along with travel. Accountancy does not, but then it never did. The urge to pack a bag and go off travelling is always lurking in the background!

Hey and welcome along to my stop on the blog tour for “The Place That Never Existed” by Jim Ody.  I have the honour of sharing an author spotlight with you today, so without much further waffle from me, lets hand over to the man of the hour!

Description:The Place That Never Existed

For Paul and Debbie it was meant to be the happiest time of their lives – a small village wedding in front of their family and friends, followed by a quiet honeymoon in Devon.  Not everyone was happy to see them together.  Someone from the past was intent on ending their marriage before it had really started.  Now, supposedly away from it all in a picturesque log cabin, Paul and Debbie find themselves in the midst of mysterious happenings.  Unexplained disappearances with people turning up dead, and all of it centred on the site of an horrific murder.  A place the locals wish was a place that never existed.

 

 

You can buy a copy of “The Place That  Never Existed” via Amazon here.


Author Spotlight:

Aside from the normal things in life I wanted to be one of three things:

  1. A footballer
  2. A drummer
  3. An author

I have done all of these on fairly amateur levels.  I think that I always knew that the one that I would get the most success from would be as an author.  I still do the other two.

I played football 11 a-side for many years, captaining Swindon Town under 12’s and under 13’s, then in many other Saturday and Sunday league teams.  Unfortunately I didn’t like being substituted and when playing at the highest level (Wiltshire League) I threw my shirt at my manager and stormed off, and from that day any footballing aspirations left me.  I played and enjoyed football at lower levels mainly as a left-wingback or as a tough-tackling centre back, but when I had children I gave up the 11a-aside.  I now play 6-a-side twice a week and certainly have no plans to give it up!

So football got in the way of me taking playing the drums seriously, as much as playing the drums got in the way of focusing on football.  I wanted to do both! I had a drumkit when I was eighteen and taught myself to play.  The lack of other musicians stopped me from playing out of my garage, although I did manage a couple of gigs filling in for a drummer and learning songs by Oasis, Stone Roses, The Stones and The Beatles in two weeks.  It was an amazing experience.  I still play my drums every couple of weeks, and again is something that I plan to do until I am physically unable to do it anymore!

All through the years of football and music, I always wrote.  I have stories, poems, songs, and just random paragraphs of thoughts all penned.  I always overthought things, and sometimes this left me slightly confused in life.  I found it helped me to write my thoughts down.  Later on I turned to music reviews matching up my love of music and writing.  There was something satisfying about discovering musical talent and promoting it through reviews.  I was able to unleash a unique reviewing style that was appreciated by bands and singers, and for a short period I began to be quoted in Press Releases, on websites and thanked in inlay covers.  But I wasn’t journalist, and never wanted to be a journalist, so thanks to the ease of self-publishing I was able to turn my attention to being an author.

I grew up on a farm in the middle of nowhere and this made me become isolated from people.  I still enjoy my own company and often struggle to fully integrate and socialise with normal civilians (a phrase I penned to get out of work-dos)! This could be why I enjoy the relative anonymity of writing, as well as my love of stories set in secluded places.  As a teen I dreamed of living in a small American town near the water, these thoughts spawned from unrealistic fiction from books films and television, and I spent many hours feeling disappointed that this would never become reality.  I eventually got over it.

I went to college and studied Business & Finance level III Advanced, as well as Sociology and Economics.  Since then I have worked in various large corporations in Finance, as well as being the Fleet Manager for The National Trust for 5 years, and now a Business Analyst for the past 7 years (which is basically problem solving).

I am married with three children in Swindon.  In the future I hope to release many more books and become a full-time author.  I then hope to go around schools and talk about the importance of reading and writing.  This is something that I feel strongly about.  I was always told that you had to do English Lit at a higher education level before you could be taken seriously as a writer.  I want to show children from all backgrounds and abilities that this is not the case.  You only need to be a good storyteller, you can learn your craft by reading and writing more and more.

 

A huge thank you to Jim for joining me today and sharing a bit about the man behind the book!

Happy Monday and welcome along to my stop on the blog tour for “The Dead of Winter” by Billy McLaughlin, I am delighted to share a character spotlight with you as well as the chance to win a ecopy of this brilliant book.

Description:

Cover(2)

One missing baby! One runaway teenager! Coincidence?

Detective Kevin Wallace doesn’t think so. And neither do the residents of Golf Road, who are all too quick to point the finger at a man with severe learning disabilities. As Wallace and a colleague, who has already experienced the ugly nature of this particular community, get closer to the truth they may not like what is hidden behind closed doors.

This is a brand new mystery from the writer of ‘Lost Girl’ and ‘In the Wake of Death’. Let the chills commence.

 

 

 

 

You can buy a copy of “The Dead of Winter” in the UK via Amazon here and in the USA via Amazon here

About the Author:

Billy McLaughlin is a Glasgow born author who released his first novelette ‘Invisible’ in March 2016. Receiving glowing customer reviews, he followed up with the gritty novel ‘Lost Girl’ which introduces readers to the mainstay characters Phil & Kate. In September 2016, his third book ‘In the Wake of Death’ was released, re-uniting audiences with Phil & Kate as well as throwing a brand new mystery that has been praised for its unique twist.

McLaughlin welcomed 2017 in celebrating that ‘Lost Girl’ peaked at number 2 in the crime thriller charts the previous August and gained the coveted number 1 slot in the Scottish crime charts with ‘In the Wake of Death’. His fourth book is released on 13 March 2017. ‘The Dead of Winter’ will appear to be a stand-alone mystery, but introduces a brand new character that is already set to make a splash in the 3rd DI Phil Morris mystery ‘The Daughter’ which is due in summer 2017.

Character Spotlight:

This character spotlight is on PC Allan Irving who is the other police officer in ‘The Dead of Winter’. Irving is far more likeable than his superior Wallace. He has a history with the people on Golf Road and continues to be disgusted by the behaviour of some of them; particularly in their disdain for a man with severe learning difficulties.

We don’t get to know that much about Irving but we know that he is kind and tries to do things the right way. He is outraged when he feels that someone is being mistreated and even puts his own self on the line to say so. He is honourable because he wants to do the right thing by some of the characters who nobody else is looking out for. In the end though, he is limited because he has to answer to his bosses.

I get the impression that Irving feels guilty that he cannot do more for those affected. I liked that he had this conscience and that he wasn’t afraid to say it. He doesn’t just blindly follow what he’s told to do or say.

Irving is a lot like Phil Morris from the previous books. He confirms early on that he has worked an investigation with Morris and I think it’s probably the case that he relates to, and admires, Morris more than Wallace.

I have no plans to keep Irving in the frame at the moment, but that could change. He’s definitely somebody I would like to know more about.
