A bit of a mixed bag for me, this month, genre-wise with crime, biography and genealogical fiction all being read! I’ve also taken part in several blog tours, sharing reviews and extracts:

 

The Body in the Mist

The Family

Death and the Harlot

Death by Dark Waters

Foul Deeds Will Rise

A Walking Shadow

Books I Have Read

When Darkness Calls by Mark Griffin

The first in a new series and a debut book for the author, this has a great twisty serial killer plot with some genuinely tense moments. Holly Wakefield, criminal psychologist, is a great character. I look forward to seeing what comes next.

 

 

Night by Night by Jack Jordan

Another great book from Jack Jordan sees unreliable narrator, Rose, fixated with the disappearance of a man whose journal she has acquired. Dealing with some hard-hitting issues, this has a very thrilling showdown at the end!

 

Legacy of Guilt by Wendy Percival

This free short book, available on the author’s website, is a great introduction to her Esme Quentin series. If you’ve never read a genealogical mystery before, this is an excellent introduction.

 

A Date With Death by Mark Roberts

The fifth book in the Eve Clay series sees the detective investigating a serial killer who is targeting young women via a dating app. Another great book from Mark Roberts.

 

The Body in the Mist by Nick Louth

This is definitely a case of being thankful for your own family when we discover how dysfunctional DCI Craig Gillard’s is! A hit and run takes him to Exmoor where he is about to become embroiled in a very complicated case…

 

Bold Lies by Rachel Lynch

A complicated case for DI Kelly Porter sees her return to London and become reacquainted with a face from her past. My review for the fifth in the series will be published shortly as part of the blog tour.

 

What Nobody Knew by Amelia Hendrey

A heart-wrenching true story of a young girl’s life of abuse and neglect that had me angry throughout. My review will be part of the blog tour in a few weeks.

 

 

Salt Lane by William Shaw

A book I had been meaning to read for a while, it finally came off my TBR list and I’m glad it did. The first in the DS Alexandra Cupidi series sees the detective investigating the murder of a woman which soon becomes a much bigger case…

 

Books I Have Acquired

On a bitterly cold winter night, Kelly Ramage leaves her suburban home, telling her husband she’s going to meet a friend.

She never comes back.

When her body is discovered, murdered in what seems to be a sex game gone horribly wrong, Detectives Gino and Magozzi take the case, expecting to find a flirtatious trail leading straight to the killer.

However, Kelly’s sinister lover has done a disturbingly good job of hiding his identity. This isn’t his first victim – and that she won’t be the last…

 

Was Elizabeth I really the last Tudor princess…?

Nonsuch Palace, England, 1586

Elizabeth I has been queen for 28 years. She has survived hundreds of plots against her but now she faces the revelation of a secret she thought would remain hidden forever…

Elizabeth is not the last of the Tudor line — there are two more legitimate heirs to her crown.

Her sworn enemy, Philip II, King of Spain, has discovered the secret and thinks he can control the missing princess as his puppet queen.

Can Elizabeth maintain control over her throne? And what happened to the lost Tudor heirs?

But she soon realises that nothing about the Tudor era was as it seemed. And now the national identity of Great Britain must be called into question.

With their enemies still tracking them and the lives of those they love in deadly risk, Perdita and Piper must succeed in exposing the secrets of history or there is no hope of them escaping alive…
