Book reviews By March 30, 2017 Tags: , , , 1 Comment

If, as I did, you really enjoyed Mrs Sinclair’s Suitcase, you’ll be happy to know that Louise Walters’ second book is out now. (And if you’ve yet to discover her, I’ll happily add to your TBR.) Here’s what the so very aptly-titled A Life Between Us is about: Tina’s sister Meg died in a childhood accident, but for almost forty years Tina…


Book Review: Summary Justice by John Fairfax #SummaryJustice #BlogTour

Blog tour, Book reviews By March 10, 2017 Tags: , , No Comments

The lawyer in me was attracted to the title and striking cover of Summary Justice, which led me to expect this to be about a legal battle against all the odds, even though unfamiliar with the author’s name. (Which as it turns out is a pen name.) Once I read the following blurb, I knew I had to read it. The…

Book reviews By March 2, 2017 Tags: , , , , No Comments

Denise Mina’s The Long Drop is a stunning standalone novel which uses as its inspiration the case of one of Scotland’s worst serial killers. I was lucky enough to read the first chapter almost a year ago. Happily, I not only managed to resist googling the real-life people and crimes but didn’t have to wait until today’s publication date to satisfy…


Happy St David’s Day! Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Hapus!

I was at a St David’s Day lunch today with about 30 Welsh people, one Scot and an Englishman. Nothing so unusual about that, I hear you say. It is St David’s Day, after all, Kath. But I’m not currently at home in Wales. I left there on Sunday, crossed the border, wound my way through a spa town, past…
