For years Milo Talon had been riding the outlaw trail, looking for a man who had betrayed his family. Only Hank Rossiter wasn’t the man he had been: old now and blind, Rossiter was trying desperately to hold on to a small ranch to support his daughter, Barbara. Suddenly Talon found himself in the middle of a range war, siding with the man he’d marked for payback. But had Rossiter really changed? And could his daughter be trusted by either of them?
In the mood for something different as I looked through the new releases on Audible, I saw The Man From The Broken Hills narrated by MacLeod Andrews. It fit the bill perfectly, although I didn’t realise at the time it was part of a series. As it happens, it can easily be read, or listened to, as a standalone.

On his first week on the job, Garda Cormac Reilly responds to a call at a decrepit country house to find two silent, neglected children waiting for him – fifteen-year-old Maude and five-year-old Jack. Their mother lies dead upstairs.
Twenty years later, Cormac has left his high-flying career as a detective in Dublin and returned to Galway. As he struggles to navigate the politics of a new police station, Maude and Jack return to haunt him.
Twenty years earlier rookie Garda Cormac Reilly discovered the body of Hilaria Blake in a dilapidated old house. He was sent out on what he thought would be a minor domestic call.
My Chronicle Book Box arrived this week (there are spoilers below if you’ve ordered one and not received it yet) This is a quarterly subscription box with a choice of science fiction/fantasy or crime/mystery. There are also one-off gift boxes available. This quarter’s box includes three recent releases and other bookish goodies.
Now for the books….
Hello, it’s been a while 😉 Hope you all had a lovely, bookish Christmas and the New Year celebrations have got 2019 off to a good start.
After some not so subtle hints I did acquire a couple of book boxes which I had much pleasure in unboxing.
The first was a Charlotte Bronté/Jane Eyre collection
I’m over at damppebbles today with my three recommended reads….
Happy Hump Day! It’s Wednesday which means the weekend is only a squeak away now…phew! I am delighted to welcome a wonderfully supportive blogger and another of my favourites to damppebbles today, the ever so lovely Cathy Ryan of BetweenTheLines ~ Books’N’Stuff. You must, must, must check out Cathy’s blog if you don’t already.
If you haven’t seen any of my #R3COMM3ND3D2018 posts so far then where have you been for the last 20 or so days?! #R3COMM3ND3D2018 is a chance for book bloggers, authors and those who work in publishing to share three books they love with the rest of us. The catch being, all three books must have been published in 2018. Other than that, there are no rules.
Here are Cathy’s choices…
The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris
