*BLOG BLITZ* Grave Island – Andrew Smyth ★★★★

Blurb; When Philip Hennessey is thrown out of army intelligence after evidence is fabricated against him, his ex-wife’s school friend asks him to investigate the sudden death of her father, who she thinks has been murdered.

Philip soon discovers a far larger problem: a lethal trade in the manufacture and distribution of counterfeit drugs.

Using his contacts within the intelligence agencies, he follows the trail across the world, chasing counterfeit vaccines that could kill thousands.

Pitted against an international conspiracy, can Philip prevent the fake medicines getting through, and who can he really trust?

My Review; Happy Publication Day!This is the very first book I have read by Andrew and I must say I am very impressed! I must admit it took me a few chapters to get into the story but then it had me hooked… Grave Island is different from those everyday thrillers we read, unique… BUT a brilliant story I enjoyed.

You can tell Andrew has put a lot of time and effort into researching this story and I learnt some new information myself from this book about medicine and drug companies. Once I got into the story I didn’t want to put it down. Grave Island is a fast paced, easy to read mystery thriller.

I would highly recommend to you all! A well deserved four stars. I look forward to reading more by this author in the future. Will Philip solve what happened? He is one determined man.

*BLOG TOUR* The Bakery at Seashell Cove – Karen Clarke ★★★★★

Blurb; A warm welcome and delicious chocolate gateau are always on the menu at the Bakery at Seashell Cove – and this summer, romance is in the air…

Meg Larson thought she had everything she wanted: she works in the local bakery, she’s months away from marrying her high-school sweetheart, and home is beautiful, sunny Seashell Cove, where the sky is blue, the sea is turquoise and the sand is golden.

Except that the bakery is up for sale and her fiancé Sam’s more interested in bikes than their relationship. When Meg receives shocking news about her family, he’s on a cycling tour and ignoring her calls – and posting selfies on Facebook with a female cyclist he looks far too cosy with…

Luckily the bakery’s estate agent, Nathan, is understanding and funny, and as the summer goes on an unexpected friendship blossoms. When the bakery is given a second lease of life under a mysterious new owner, Meg realises a change might be exactly what she needs too.

Will Meg find the happy-ever-after she dreams of in Seashell Cove?

My Review; Happy Publication Day!What a delicious story. The Bakery at Seashell Cove is bound to get your tummy rumbling, with so much baking and yummy food! I loved reading this story and found myself falling in love with the bakery, the town and the characters!

I loved Meg’s character, bless her. So passionate about baking! She may have a bit of a hectic life at the moment but she’s a positive character who takes everything in her stride… I also liked Nathan’s character too, the perfect man from the sounds of it and the picture i built up in my head! And a little mention for little charlie, he was cute! I must admit I did find Sam’s character a bit arogant and self centred. Hmm. Anyway…

A perfect heart-warming story which I devoured in a day. Brilliant. I felt relaxed and right at home reading it the whole time as if I knew the characters all my life. Lovely. An easy to read, beautiful story with the perfect ending and a cherry on top (see what I did there?)… A well deserved five stars. Highly recommend! A perfect little getaway for your mind. A story I won’t forget in a hurry.

A perfect read for summer 2018.
