‘She’s like nothing you’ve ever seen. She is beautiful – a perfect fusion of physical and mental supremacy. And she hasn’t been free for forty years. Who knows what she’ll do?’ 

Cambodia, 1970. A US Army platoon sweeps through thick jungle searching for hidden North Vietnamese supplies. What they find instead is a terrifying creature from the darkest pages of ancient mythology. 

It’s nearly fifty years since a platoon of soldiers in the Cambodian jungle stumbled upon a horrific scene they couldn’t begin to process. Multiple gruesome deaths…a fantasy creature spouting flames….civilians seemingly worshiping the apparition.

Barbara Heyer can hear voices of dead people. They whisper of their deaths, seek comfort for those left behind, and occasionally even warn her about future events. But when Barbara’s brother, Colin, is accused of murder, it will take more than her gift to prove his innocence.

The book description was promising and the paranormal aspect intriguing, coupled with the fact the story explores reincarnation and past lives, all of which fascinate me. And I love the cover image. Continue reading

Veteran cop, DCI David Jones, is tough and uncompromising. His Serious Crime Unit has the best arrest record the Midlands Police Service has ever seen and Jones wants to keep it that way. 

Locksmith turned jewel thief, Sean Freeman, is the best in the UK. He’s never been caught—the police have never even come close. When Freeman’s boss forces him to break into the Stafford Museum, the UK’s most secure premises outside of the Bank of England, he’s in trouble—the Stafford is in the heart of Jones’ jurisdiction.

A few lines about my ideal holiday destination where I can sit back and relax with a book

My ideal holiday destination where I can kick back, relax and read a book would be an air conditioned villa whose garden leads on to a tropical beach. That being unlikely in the grand scheme of things, I’ll settle for our caravan on the edge of a Scottish loch in high summer when it is possible to read out of doors without a light until well after 10pm.

The ideal format my choice of book would be available in (for me as a reader) –why?

I spend a lot of time in front of a screen – writing, texting, blogging etc. I have an array of…

So we are 10 days into our Beach read holiday and by now we should be totally relaxed and rested.

My ideal holiday destination? I have a few! Some years ago, before my work life consisted of sitting on the sofa with my laptop, I visited many exotic locations in the course of my work (that’s a whole other story). So I have many to pick from, and I’d like to share some with you.

I prefer hard copy, paperback books. Yes, I know Kindle is more convenient, and I do have one, which I find very handy for plane journeys etc., but in an ideal world I’d carry an entire library with me, like the character in Somerset Maugham’s story, The Book Bag. (Read it, it’s haunting.)

My ideal holiday destination would be a dog friendly, olde worlde cottage with a fire for chilly evenings, a beautiful secluded beach and a view of the sea beyond. It would include a lovely patio area with comfortable squashy chairs, and maybe a hammock, just right for reading and watching the sunset. There’d be a few pleasant walks, cafés and bars/restaurants with pretty terraces nearby.…and maybe some interesting little shops. Possibly a bookshop or two! My iPod and Kindle (so many books taking up such small spaces) travel everywhere with me along with a ‘real’ book or two.
