My Review: A gripping standalone novel from the author of the Detective Alec Ramsay Series. I must start by saying WOW! I was hooked from the first page. I devoured this story and I really did not want it to end. Excellent story. Brick is full of drama, suspense, violence, death, guns and lies. The perfect read which will keep you hooked throughout. I found it easy to read and extremely fast paced. Of course like usual I WANTED MORE. I cannot wait to read more by Conrad Jones and I am very happy that I was introduced to this author. A thrilling story packed full, which you will not forget in a hurry. Brick is the perfect story for readers who enjoy an excellent thriller, crime, action, drama, suspense and mystery filled story. I would highly recommend this story to you all. Enjoy, I did. Loved it.
Please note this book has been republished under Bloodhound Books and I read this book in September last year, this is my original review! Can’t wait to see whats next from Conrad Jones! I’m waiting…… A well deserved five stars.

WOW! I am impressed. What an amazing story. This is the first story I have read by Linda and it will not be my last, I really enjoyed reading this one. Very different! This story focuses on the NEED for a baby, which does still happen in the 21st century. A well planned and researched story which will have you hooked from the first page. Brilliant. A well deserved five stars. Baby dear is easy to read, fast paced and will hold your attention till the very last page… It also has a very beautiful cover which goes well the story. I would highly recommend this book to you all! CURRENTLY 99P.
Sophie Winter lives in a self-imposed cocoon – she’s a single, thirty-one year old translator who works from home in her one bedroom flat. This isn’t really the life she dreamed of, but then Sophie stopped believing in happy endings a very long time ago, when she was fifteen years old and tragedy struck her family. Her grief has left her scared of commitment and completely risk averse, so she plays it safe and keeps everyone at arm’s length. Sophie understands she has a problem, but recognising it and knowing how to fix it are two entirely different things.
One night a serious fire breaks out in the flat below hers. Sophie is trapped in the burning building until a random passer-by, Ben, luckily happens to spot and rescue her. Suddenly her cocoon is shattered – what will be the consequences of this second life-changing event?
This was a must read for me after seeing a friend read this book and enjoying it, also I personally enjoyed her other book (Fractured). I have to say Dani’s stories are so beautiful that they also make me cry and break my heart! (sometimes its good to cry). I love her stories. They are written beautifully, fast paced, easy to read and will have you grabbing for a tissue. You will just fall in love with the characters, especially Ben who is the real hero. I really enjoyed reading this book and I was immersed into Sophie’s and Ben’s world. I would highly recommend this book to you all but a tissue or two will be needed! Dani is definitely an author to watch out for! A well deserved five stars from me as I loved the cover and a book that makes me cry now and again… A must buy from me! Enjoy, I loved it and will miss this story. CURRENTLY 99P. You won’t regret buying this one.
