Soon after DI Hellier returns home to Exeter under a cloud, the body of a talented young singer is found in the woods.

My Review; What a brilliant start to the upcoming Detective Hellier series that is bound to be amazing. It had me hooked from the first chapter. Thrilling… I found it an easy to read, fast paced mystery/crime.

*BLOG TOUR* Thirteen – Steve Cavanagh ★★★★★

Blurb; They were Hollywood’s hottest power couple. They had the world at their feet. Now one of them is dead and Hollywood star Robert Solomon is charged with the brutal murder of his beautiful wife.

This is the celebrity murder trial of the century and the defence want one man on their team: con artist turned lawyer Eddie Flynn.

All the evidence points to Robert’s guilt, but as the trial begins a series of sinister incidents in the court room start to raise doubts in Eddie’s mind.

What if there’s more than one actor in the courtroom?

What if the killer isn’t on trial? What if the killer is on the jury?

My Review; Wow. There has been so much hype and positive reviews for this book so I was honoured I got the chance to read it too and have my say! They was right… Everyone was right! What a brilliant book! Impressed.

Captivating, gripping, thrilling, fast paced! I now understand about the hype. Thirteen may be book number four in the Eddie Flynn series but it reads well as a standalone. I have not read any of the series before this book but after reading this book I MUST read this series!

I found Thirteen easy to read… It also contains short chapters. I love the cover of this book too. Thirteen is bound to have you hooked! A cleverly, crafty written story. A well deserved five stars from me. I would highly recommend it to you all. This book is what I call a sleep stealer and one you don’t want to put down. A must buy. A must read. I enjoyed every minute of this book and can’t wait to dive into the rest of the series!

*BLOG BLITZ* The Doomsday Girl – Dave Stanton ★★★★

Blurb; Melanie Jordan’s life seemed perfect.

Until masked intruders arrive at her house, demanding gold she doesn’t have. A savage blow to the head puts her in a coma for four weeks. When Melanie regains consciousness, she learns her husband has been murdered and her ten-year-old daughter is missing.

Private Eye Dan Reno begins investigating, but nothing about the case makes sense. Was there gold at the house or wasn’t there? Was Melanie’s husband hiding something? And what happened to Melanie’s daughter?

To complicate things, the case leads to Las Vegas, where Reno’s loose-cannon buddy, Cody Gibbons, is trying to repair his relationship with his college-aged daughter, an intern with Las Vegas P.D.

When clues implicate Russian mobsters and a mysterious African illegal, Reno tries to stay in the shadows, but once the crooks feel the noose tightening, they raise the stakes to a deadly level.

And then, as they say in Vegas, all bets are off.

My Review; Happy Publication Day! The Doomsday Girl is book six in the brilliant Dan Reno series and is the final chapter, I am sad to have finished this series. It does read well as a standalone but would recommend reading the series in order.

Dan and Cody are back for their final case, could this be their toughest case yet? Will Dan be able to find the missing ten year old dead or alive? A brilliant, action packed, explosive ending for this series. They say qgo out with a bang and Dave certainly did that for the reader.

A cleverly written story, I found myself getting lost into this case and beside Dan wanting to help. I found the Doomsday Girl an easy and fast paced read even when it does contain long chapters. I have loved reading this series as a whole, something different within each book which keot this series refreshing. I would highly recommend to you all. Another well deserved four stars. A brilliant cliffhanger of an ending to, leaving the reader to finish the story for themselves. Loved it.
