My Thoughts

Nineteen year old Zaffron had been on her own for years after shocking events caused her to run away into a life of homelessness and drugs. After overcoming substance abuse and mental health issues, she was living in a squat, trying to get her life into some sort of order. She kept her room clean and made it as nice as possible amid the chaos of the rest of the building. Desperate for something warm and smart to wear at the interview she was hoping to get, she went into a charity shop with the intention of stealing a coat.

Today I’m pleased to help launch the blog tour for Old Cases New Colours by Madalyn Morgan, with an extract from Chapter One, courtesy of the author and Rachel’s Random Resources.

Intro: After the war in 1945, Ena worked for The Home Office as head of the cold case department. After exposing the mole at MI5 and learning that the man she had worked with for thirteen years – and had respected for as long – was the head of the spy cell, Ena left her job. She was a good investigator but didn’t want to work for the government or the intelligence services, so she started a private investigation agency.

Harper’s Highland Fling by Lizzie Lamb #BookReview #Romance @lizzie_lamb @rararesources #TuesdayBookBlog

It’s my pleasure to join the blog tour and share my review for Harper’s Highland Fling, courtesy of Rachel’s Random Resources.

My Thoughts

Harper’s Highland Fling takes us from Cornwall to the majestic glory of the Scottish Highlands via the scenic Lake District. Harper MacDonald, executive headteacher of a federation of village schools, had done a sterling job of turning around those schools threatened with closure. Now it was the end of the academic year and, before she had to make a decision about her future, there was a three week tour of Nepal to look forward to. Or so she thought.

#Promo ~ The Dark Chorus by Ashley Meggitt @CallMeReg #Horror #Suspense @rararesources

I’m sharing a promo post for my stop on the blog tour for The Dark Chorus, courtesy of Rachel’s Random Resources.

About the Book

Oblivio salvationem Angelis opperitur

Oblivion awaits the Angel’s salvation

The Boy can see lost souls. 

He has never questioned the fact that he can see them. He thinks of them as the Dark Chorus. When he sets out to restore the soul of his dead mother it becomes clear that his ability comes from within him. It is a force that he cannot ignore – the last shard of the shattered soul of an angel. 

To be restored to the kingdom of light, the shard must be cleansed of the evil that infects it – but this requires the corrupt souls of the living! 

With the help from Makka, a psychotically violent young man full of hate, and Vee, an abused young woman full of pain, the Boy begins to kill. 

Psychiatrist Dr Eve Rhodes is seconded to assist the police investigation into the Boy’s apparently random ritualistic killings. As the investigation gathers pace, a pattern emerges. When Eve pulls at the thread from an article in an old psychology journal, what might otherwise have seemed to her a terrible psychotic delusion now feels all too real…

Will the Boy succeed in restoring the angel’s soul to the light? Can Eve stop him, or will she be lost to realm of the Dark Chorus?
