The House Review


Londoners Jack and Syd moved into the house a year ago. It seemed like their dream home: tons of space, the perfect location, and a friendly owner who wanted a young couple to have it.

So when they made a grisly discovery in the attic, Jack and Syd chose to ignore it. That was a mistake.

Because someone has just been murdered. Right outside their back door.

And now the police are watching them...

Out-of-work actress Derry O’Donnell is young, talented, a teeny bit psychic … and broke.

But at her first fortune-telling gig - a celebrity charity weekend in a castle - a famous rap artist will die.

As Derry is drawn deeper into a seedy world of celebrities, supermodels and millionaires, she finds herself playing the most dangerous role of her acting life. Trapped in a maze of intrigue, money and drugs, Derry's attempts at amateur detective could soon destroy her friends, her ex-lover, her father and herself.

Rachel Amphlett Q&A - Blog Tour

Publication Day!

Today is my turn on the Will To Live blog tour and I have the pleasure of hosting Rachel Amphlett on her publication day. If you haven't ordered this book already you can get it on Amazon by clicking this link.

 + So, your book is being published!

Woo hoo!!

+ How do you spend publication day eve and the actual day? What do you do the night before?

I check all the books are ready to go, deal with any last-minute emails, and set my alarm nice and early for the next day – although I’m usually too excited to sleep.

+ The morning?

Because I’m ten hours ahead of most of my reader and blogging friends, publication day for me is often the calm before the storm. Things really ramp up over the course of the evening and into the next morning – when I released Scared to Death, I was up at 5 AM so I could attend a Facebook page takeover and then an author Q&A session some kindly bloggers had set up for me – I was desperate for a second up of coffee by the end of it!

Vengeance by Roger A. Price
Source: Early release Arc
Released: 27th February 2017

Jack Quintel is a hit man. When a job comes in to kill the Deputy Chief Constable of the Greater Manchester Police Jim Reedly, he contracts it out to a new guy, Charlie Parker. Watching in the shadows, Quintel sees Parker shoot out Reedly’s windscreen, then drag him into the woods and thinks the job’s been done. But when Parker tries to pass off a pig’s heart as Reedly’s, things start to go very wrong. Jack’s right hand man Jason kills Charlie, who it turns out is an undercover police officer.
Detective Vinnie Palmer is with the Preston police. He was called in when they received the information about the impending hit. Now he has to figure out how to clean up the mess. And he wants whoever killed Parker bad. He finds the man who put Parker in touch with Quintel, a low life hood named Dempter, living in an estate in Preston. He doesn’t know much, but motivated by money, agrees to be an informant for the police.
Christine Jones is a TV reporter. She and Vinnie had worked together before, chasing a serial killer. They meet again at the warehouse where Charlie was killed, and realise their relationship could be more than professional. But first, Christine wants to know what’s happening. Vinnie agrees to keep her in the loop.
Meanwhile, Christine is working on a documentary about positive discrimination against non-Catholic officers in Northern Ireland since the peace process. She makes contact with a former police officer in Northern Belfast named Paul Bury, who feeds her some of the information she needs.

Meanwhile, as the bodies start to pile up in Preston, there’s another attempt on Reedly’s life, when a grenade is thrown at him at his brother in law’s funeral.  As Vinnie fights to keep Reedly alive, suddenly Christine’s life is in danger. And they both start to wonder if the contract against Reedly has anything to do with her documentary on Northern Ireland. But how could it?
Filled with twists and turns and gritty detail, this is must read for crime fans everywhere.

Today is my stop on the Those Who Lie blog tour, I've been asked to write a review. You can buy Those Who Lie now on Amazon by clicking this link and if you need some reasons why you should buy it, check out my review below! 

Emily Klein doesn’t know she has killed her husband until the day of his funeral.

At first, signs point to a tragic accident. Yet, as Emily pieces together the events before his death – events which led to her own memory loss – she begins to suspect that her husband’s death may have been the result of more than a terrible twist of fate…
But the accident is only the beginning. Because while Emily’s physical scars will heal, the trauma of the accident has awakened old ghosts. She hears strange sounds, catches things that can’t possibly be there in the corner of her eye. Before long, everywhere she looks, she seems to see her husband.
And suddenly, Emily finds herself asking the most dangerous question of all.

Can she really trust herself?
