Manhattan Mayhem: New Crime Stories from Mystery Writers of America
Manhattan Mayhem: New Crime Stories from Mystery Writers of America
Price: $12.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Mayhem indeed!, June 28, 2015
Manhattan Mayhem is a collection of short stories by the Mystery Writers of America. Some are indeed more mysterious than others, in fact some are far more enjoyable than others. However that is a subjective view. All are well written, all fascinating in one respect or another and all based on a central theme – Manhattan. The authors take a particular location and write a story set there, some in the past, some in the present day. This is a book more to dip in and out of, rather than read straight through and a great way to pass the odd half an hour. I was provided with a copy from NetGalley in return for an honest review.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoyable, June 28, 2015
This review is from: The Aeschylus (Kindle Edition)
A rip roaring romp set in the present day, mixed in with the horrors of Nazi Germany in the early years of the war. The two story lines collide in the crescendo of the novel and provide a fast paced easy read. I really enjoyed it, particularly the interaction of the two time periods and seeing how one affected the other. I was provided with a copy of this book from NetGalley in return for an honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great resource, May 26, 2015
This is a great resource for those who have written their novel/non-fiction book and self-published it and are sat at home thinking why isn't it selling? What am I doing wrong? Or even, I don't know where to start! Alinka deals with marketing a book in a very straightforward way, she glosses over the publishing process itself and soon gets down to the nitty gritty of promotion. She admits she made mistakes along the way - haven't we all - and talks candidly about them. Alinka is clearly enthusiastic about book marketing and her positive attitude shines through. I learned a few new promotional tips from the book myself as well as info about marketing activities that I hadn't yet undertaken, that she recommends to steer clear of.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well written adventure, May 23, 2015
This review is from: Old Earth (Kindle Edition)
Ideal for fans of Dan Brown, Old Earth is a tale of intrepid heroes, secret societies and ancient clues. A well written adventure tale, if a little predictable, ideal holiday or travelling reading.


Blood Of My Blood
Blood Of My Blood

4.0 out of 5 stars Violent conclusion to series, May 23, 2015
This review is from: Blood Of My Blood (Kindle Edition)
The conclusion to the I Hunt Killers trilogy is here at last and I found it slightly disappointing, mostly because of the increasing violence. The book opens with a crash bang and wallop and never really lets up. An exhausting read, but it was good to know how the trilogy ended. I agree with a previous reviewer - you must have read the first two books to make any sense of this one!


Crash & Burn
Crash & Burn

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a usual police procedural, May 23, 2015
This review is from: Crash & Burn (Kindle Edition)
It poses more questions than answers, is a very true description of this book. I enjoyed the plot, but found the rather convoluted way it was written and the detailed conversations in the protagonists head bordering on tedious at times. Not your usual police procedural and as such worth a read.


Letters To My Husband
Letters To My Husband

4.0 out of 5 stars An uncomfortable read, May 23, 2015
This well written, emotional novel pulls at the heartstrings rather too much. The plot was ingenious but the heartache and misery were unrelenting, leaving the reader feel depressed rather than uplifted. An uncomfortable read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Romantic comedy at its best, April 15, 2015
Amusing and romantic, yet with a dose of realism, this is romantic comedy at its best. I loved Chloe and found it easy to be in her corner, fighting her trials and tribulations with her. Her wry sense of humour shines through, although she has her emotions in check most of the time. And so the story focuses not only on Chloe’s quest to save her grandfather’s theatre but also on her possible relationship with a possible saviour Duncan Thorson. Can Duncan break through Chloe’s emotional shield? Does he want to? Is he ready for romance? These are the questions posed throughout the book and you’ll have to read on to the end to find out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enthralling, February 22, 2015
Things in Half Shadow is, as the publishers said blends historical detail with flights of fancy and is a riveting thriller where nothing is quite as it seems. It is also quite simply a great story really well told. I love a good yarn and this book does not disappoint. The unique voice of the narrator immediately draws you into the book and just doesn’t let up as Edward Clark tells you, the reader, all about his escapades when trying to oust fake mediums for his newspaper article. But then a murder occurs before his very eyes and Lucy Collins and he must fight to clear their names. Not only is this a fast paced read, but it is also an emotional one. The reader laughs, cries and worries with the characters and it is indeed an enthralling read.
I received a copy of the book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
