Author Emylia Hall is my guest today as part of The Thousand Lights Hotel blog tour. As we’re both huge fans of Tim Winton, it’s little surprise that place is as important to her in books as it is to me. Which is why I’m thrilled to host Emylia’s post on writing place and the island of Elba, the setting for her latest novel,…

Book Review: Exquisite by Sarah Stovell #Exquisite #BlogTour

Blog tour, Book reviews By June 11, 2017 Tags: , , No Comments

I know from personal experience how intense a week’s writing retreat can be; they forge lasting friendships and can be as life-changing for the individual as they are for their writing. But I’m incredibly relieved they’ve never proved to be as devastating as the one which sparks off the central female relationship in Sarah Stovell’s Exquisite. Bo Luxton has it all…

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…

You’re sixteen, you’re pregnant and you’ve been kidnapped. If you’re anyone else you give in,…

Book Review: Ragdoll by Daniel Cole #RagdollBook #BlogTour

Blog tour, Book reviews By February 23, 2017 Tags: , , , No Comments

Daniel Cole’s debut novel, Ragdoll, intrigued me because it had not one but multiple victims, and I thought I’d enjoy seeing what the connections between them all were, that is, beyond the stitching that loosely connects the initial six. Here’s what the blurb says: A body is discovered with the dismembered parts of six victims stitched together, nicknamed by the press…
