Wow weeee. Where to beginning? What another brilliant story written by Tara. I flew through this story! This could possibly be the best story yet. Gripping, thrilling and a real page turner. A book you will want to read in one sitting. I think I may just have fallen inlove with DI Hamilton a little.

This time the case gets dark and personal for the team, could this be their worst case yet when one of their own is involved? When a killer wants revenge? Bloody brilliant. Cleverly written! A well deserved five stars from me… I now eagerly await book five… Hopefully 😉 Highly recommend!

*BLOG BLITZ* Before I Met Him – John Nicholl ★★★★★

Blurb; Every once in a while the hunters become the hunted…

When Rebecca’s childhood abuser avoids prosecution, it sets her on a path to revenge and soon she is handing out retribution on any man who preys on the innocent.

The twenty-three-year-old poses as a child online and sets her trap, luring one predatory sex offender after another to their deaths.

When a severed head is found washed up on a windswept estuary beach, DI Gravel and his team are called in to investigate.

In what might be his toughest case yet, DI Gravel finds himself asking if vigilante justice is ever justified…

My Review; This story was previously published as Mind to Kill. Now I have read every book so far by John and he has not let me down yet. And yet again… he has written another belter of a book! I would go as far to say this one is his best one yet!

Now this story focuses on an issue you and I have probably seen a lot of on social media recently especially Facebook! Sexual predators and peadophiles. Now this may not be a subject some readers want to read or enjoy. However, it is a cleverly written story.

It highlights how angry and determimed Rebecca was due to the unexpected outcome of her child abuser. She wants to take back some control! Parts of this story are dark and gritty but it is a brilliant read! A fast paced, page turner and thrilling.

I’ve awarded a well deserved five stars and would highly recommend it to you all. John is an author whose work I am loving, each and everyone I have enjoyed and loved.. I already look forward to the next book!

*BLOG BLITZ* Murder in the Med – Peter Mayle ★★★★

Blurb; When a billionaire finds himself on the wrong side of a Russian tycoon, he’s fortunate to have friends, Sam and Elena, on hand to help him out. Now it’s up to Sam, who’s saved his friends neck before, to negotiate with an underworld hit men and Mafioso, in order to prevent his friend from winding up dead.

As usual, Sam and Elena still find time to enjoy the good life, but as Sam’s sleuthing draws him closer to the truth, he realizes his friend might not be the only one in trouble…

My Review; Murder in the Med was previously published as The Corsican Caper. This is a short story that can easily be read in one sitting at just 131 pages. A bite sized brilliant story. Perfect for those readers with busy lives.

Oh how the other richer half live eh? and a beautiful location for the story too. I did find it took me a couple of chapters to get into the story as it isn’t an everyday thriller we all read and love. Its different, unique and well written but I still enjoyed it nevertheless. Murder in the Med is packed with suspense and will keep those pages turning. A cosy mystery…

I felt that the main characters were very strong, determined and at times stupid and fearless characters! I awarded a well deserved four stars and would highly recommend this story to you all.
