*BLOG BLITZ* Stateline – Dave Stanton. ★★★★

Blurb; Cancel the wedding–the groom is dead.

When a tycoon’s son is murdered the night before his wedding, the enraged and grief- stricken father offers investigator Dan Reno (that’s Reno, as in no problemo), a life-changing bounty to find the killer. Reno, nearly broke, figures he’s finally landed in the right place at the right time. It’s a nice thought, but when a band of crooked cops get involved, Reno finds himself not only earning every penny of his paycheck, but also fighting for his life.

Who committed the murder, and why? Which cops can he trust, if any? Haunted by his murdered father and a violent, hard drinking past, Reno wants no more blood on his hands. But a man’s got to make a living, and backing off is not in his DNA. Traversing the snowy alpine winter in the Sierras and the lonely deserts of Nevada, Reno must revert to his old ways to survive. Because the fat bounty won’t do him much good if he’s dead…

My Review; Happy Publication Day! Stateline is book number one in the Dan Reno series and I enjoyed it, a great start to the series. I found it an easy read but more of a crime/detective/investigation story than a thriller.

This story has it all! Fights, drugs, hookers, alcohol, crooked cops, gambling… You name it this book has it. It is action packed! However, I did find some of the chapters very long. I liked the PI (private investigator) Dan, he doesn’t mess around. I cannot wait to see what lies ahead for Dan in this series. I awarded four stars and would recommend to you all. Keep your eyes peeled for book number 2 shortly called Blind Luck.

*BLOG BLITZ* Captor – Anita Waller ★★★★

Blurb; Liz Chambers is a devoted mother who works for a successful law firm. She has two children, a husband and a blossoming career. But behind closed doors, Liz is harbouring a secret that could destroy her life.

Then the unthinkable happens, and in a frenzied attack, her young son is snatched from the home of the nanny charged with looking after him.

As Liz’s life unfolds, it becomes clear that someone is out for revenge.

Desperate to get her baby boy back, Liz must work out who is responsible for his kidnap, and why.

But as the body count begins to mount, Liz’s concern grows for the safety of her child.

Who has taken her baby?

And why is Captor so determined on revenge?

My Review; Captor will have you gripped from the beginning and won’t let you go until you have finished. It is a suspense filled crime thriller that will keep you guessing throughout. I was honestly shocked at the outcome of this story, I did not expect it at all! I felt sorry for poor Liz, there is only so much one character can take and she had it all thrown at her!

Stories like these that contains babies and young children always get to me a little more cause I’m a parent myself I relate to the mother/father character and think what would I actually do in that situation, its scary. I found Captor an easy, fast paced read and enjoyed every minute of it. I awarded a well deserved four stars. Another brilliant book by Anita with a fab cover too. I would highly recommend this story to you all!

*GUEST POST* The Bulletproof Proposal – Rebekah Louise.

A little post by Rebekah herself; I am very excited to share this post with you. As most of you will be aware, I have published my latest book ‘The Bulletproof Proposal’.

This is my second book and I decided to write a novelette. I love the idea of a short story, the reader can enjoy it in one or two sittings, fitting it in around their hectic lifestyles.

The idea for ‘The Bulletproof Proposal’ came when a close friend of mine was waiting for her partner to propose. I thought about what someone might do in that situation and I think most people would try and gain control, giving rise to the idea for my new book.

This story was an exciting piece for me to write. I took on Lisa’s character with ease as she was fun to write about (I think I could also see some of myself in her). Authors will tell you to write about a topic that you would want to read yourself and this is a book that I would want to snuggle up with. I also love the cover, which I had great fun designing, and I am guilty of choosing a book by its cover, so I hope it will attract you too. My wonderful husband put together the book trailer and I think it is a wonderful teaser of what’s to come.

‘The Bulletproof Proposal’ was published in November 2017, and my hope is that you’ll enjoy reading it as much as I loved writing it. Please leave a review if you liked it, on either Amazon or Goodreads, and tell your friends and family about it, it would be much appreciated.

Book Blurb; After five years of dating Lisa is anticipating that all-important question, will you marry me?

Impatient, Lisa decides to take matters into her own hands and propose to Matt, after all it is the 21st Century. Only she takes it one step further and with the help of her best friend Mandy, she prepares the ultimate proposal.

What she doesn’t know is whether this will be the beginning of her happily-ever- after or the beginning of the end.

My Review; This is the perfect, short story for all chick-lit, romance and drama fans. Perfect for when you’re busy and need a quick read! You can easily devour this story in less than an hour. Lisa is a strong, determined character that will get her own way! Imagine proposing and planning a wedding within 2 weeks. Mental! But will her partner say yes? Lisa is willing to risk it all. I enjoyed reading this one and it even gave me a little chuckle. Perfect.
