Two Wrongs by Mel Grath Blog Tour

 Over the years my reading tastes have changed, I have come to love quite a few genres and one of my current favourites are psychological thrillers.

I think it has something to do with the pace mixed in with that mystery element where as the reader you really have to think about what's going on. 

Feels like we become the detective.

The last novel to grab my attention was Two Wrongs, the latest novel from best-selling author Mel Grath.

In the city of Bristol, young women are dying in mysterious circumstances. The deaths look like suicides – but are they something more sinister?

Honor is terrified that her daughter might be next. But as she looks for clues as to what really happened to the girls, she stumbles upon a link to a dark secret in her own past – one that she’s kept from her daughter.

Now Honor has the chance to avenge her child for the terrible events of years ago. But how far will she go to protect her daughter and right the wrongs done to her family?

Reading Round Up 2021 #9

 Hey there fellow readers. How are you all?

I have to admit that I felt the pressure to read last week, instead of purely doing it for pleasure. My own fault, I get caught up in the joy of reading a new book, not paying attention to how many reviews and blog tours I'm committing myself to. 

Must slow down.

Does anyone else find they have the problem of too many books not enough time? Now I've written that down I feel like there is only one answer to that question!

Anyway with that rant over, let me tell you about the books that I did manage to peruse last week (and yes they are all that awesome):

Country Cat Blues by Alison O'Leary Blog Tour

 I won't deny that I love a good book series, but sometimes what makes a series is the fact that you can read one book without having to read all of them, in a long-winded way I'm saying that the story can make sense still by itself.

And this is certainly the case with Country Cat Blues, the second novel in the Cat Noir series from author Alison O'Leary which I was kindly gifted in exchange for being part of this blog tour.

When former rescue cat Aubrey moves to the picturesque village of Fallowfield with his owners and their foster son Carlos, he is looking forward to exploring the delights of the English countryside.

However, all is not as it seems among the residents. The idyllic peace is shattered when a gruesome murder takes place at the village fete.

Tension is running high and Aubrey is particularly upset when suspicion falls on Morris, who may be almost permanently drunk, but is also good friend to the local cat population…

Can Aubrey restore the peace in the village and help clear Morris’s name?

Call Me Mummy by Tina Baker Blog Tour

 What a year for new books it has already been.

I'm ending February joining in with the blog tour for Tina Baker's fantastic debut novel Call Me Mummy. This is set to be THE thriller for Mother's Day this year so if you know a mum who's an avid reader of books, get this ordered now!

Glamorous, beautiful Mummy has everything a woman could want... except for a daughter of her very own. So when she sees Kim - heavily pregnant, glued to her phone and ignoring her eldest child in a busy shop - she does what anyone would do. She takes her. But little foul-mouthed Tonya is not the daughter that Mummy was hoping for.

Meanwhile Kim is demonised by the media as a 'scummy mummy', who deserved to lose Tonya and ought to have her other children taken too. Haunted by memories of her own childhood and refusing to play by the media's rules, she begins to spiral, turning on those who love her.

Though they are worlds apart, Mummy and Kim have more in common than they could possibly imagine. But it is five-year-old Tonya who is caught in the middle...

I was highly intrigued by this book and more than thankful to be given the chance to read it (thank you Viper Books).

This book is thrilling, in truth actually that is an understatement, it is disturbing whilst remaining overwhelmingly compelling.

Motherhood but not as we know it.


When a young girl vanishes from a shop, one mother is left distraught whilst another is finally assuming the role in which she was born to take on, or so she believes.
