NICE POSTMAN, LOOK WHAT I GOT!

I am looking forward to reading this as I loved the previous books about The Hampstead murders that Guy has written, it is nice to read about good old police work and the characters are great.  Due to be published on the 2nd June and my review can be read on publishing day but I must say it sounds really good.  Maybe this time if I try really hard I might get it right about who did the murder…..’really’ I can hear you all saying, lol I do try.

CATCH UP

I have been catching up writing my reviews everywhere on social media for these two inspiring authors.  I like them both for different reasons, Samantha Tonge for the underlying messages in her story about having a good time and making super memories does not need money, I think people today should remember that when spending time with their loved ones.  Then Julie Wassmer for writing about the area we live in, KENT UK with its many wonderful places including Canterbury and the coast along by Whitstable, I find it so enjoyable reading about them and picturing where the characters are and where they are going.

So now I am onto the next book which is Secrets of the Dead by Carol Wyer!  Sounds good so look out for the review of this one.

SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM LINKS WHERE YOU CAN FIND ME!

Authors and bloggers social media platforms.

There are so many media platforms for authors and bloggers now that it makes it harder to decide which ones to connect to.  If you can link them altogether so you only have to make one post that will automatically go to all sites then that is the best plan.

How beautiful is this cover of Laura’s latest romantic comedy, Excess Baggage? It’s out on the 23rd and you can pre-order now at:  myBook.to/ExcessBaggageLB   I cannot wait to read this as it sounds very good.

 
Synopsis

Stuck in a dead-end relationship, Erica Bennett finds herself daydreaming of her first holiday romance. She was fifteen, it was exciting, new and full of possibilities…and Jack Lawson was hot as hell. That kind of thing leaves a mark.
So when her friends suggest a girls holiday to Luna Island, it’s exactly what she needs to take her mind off things. What she doesn’t expect is to spot Jack – a much older, hotter version of him – across the hotel lobby.
Their attraction is still there and it isn’t long before sparks fly, but fifteen years is a long time. They aren’t the same people they were back then and besides, it’s only a week, right?
Is it a second chance at something real or will their excess baggage ruin their shot at love after they leave Luna Island?

MASQUERADE BALL NOVEMBER 2017

I know November is a few months away but you need to get your tickets now for this amazing masquerade party.

The indie book community is… well, let’s face it, bloody brilliant! And come the end of the year when authors have released their book(s), bloggers have helped promote, and readers have read, wouldn’t it be nice if we could all get together and celebrate yet another fantastic year? Well, we can!
It’s time to dust off those dancing shoes and dress to impress for The End of Year Indie Masquerade Party.  Authors, forget about those book and swag orders, and readers and bloggers forget about those pre-order lists. It’s time to let your hair down and mingle as we celebrate the year of 2017.
Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1868943793373312/

I have always wanted to go to a masquerade ball, how exciting.  On their Facebook page there is also a link for travel, hotels and transport so you have all the information you need at your fingertips.  Also with the new B&B type places to stay on airbnb your stay over will be relatively cheap so more money to spend on your outfit, oh and don’t forget your mask.

 

MURDER ON SEA BY JULIE WASSMER-BOOK REVIEW

img_3037

Reading this made me feel happy as I love the author and I love Whitstable, it was also good to catch up on what the characters of Pearl, Dolly and DCI Mike McGuire had been up to.  These characters are great, so down to earth and normal and I think that is why it works as you can relate to a lot of it, well apart from the murders, lol.

In this Pearl mystery it is Christmas time so plenty of activity going on with the church events and work outings to Pearls restaurant called The Whitstable Pearl so when people start receiving poison pen christmas cards Pearl decides she has to say no to solving the mystery under her Nolan’s Detective Agency as she just has so much to do.

Things happen at the church event and one of the locals drops down dead but then because McGuire was there as a guest of Pearls he cannot lead the case, so who will solve the mystery?  Before long there is another death, are they linked to the Christmas cards? Lots of questions need to be answered so Pearl asks a few more herself.

As usual I did not guess who committed the murders so I enjoyed reading this, it is nice to read something a bit lighter but still keep you turning the pages.  This goes in my top ten for this year.  I have one more of this author’s books to read in The Whitstable Pearl Mystery series so lets hope another one is written soon.
