Beth Jago appears to have the idyllic life, she has a trade to earn a living and a cottage of her own in Cornwall’s beautiful River Valley. Yet appearances can be deceptive…
Beth has a secret. Since inheriting her isolated cottage she has been receiving threats, so when she finds a man in her home she acts on her instincts. One frying pan to the head and she has robbed the handsome stranger of his memory and almost killed him.
Brought together by unknown circumstances, and fearful he may die, she reluctantly nurses the intruder back to health. Yet can she trust the man with no name who has entered her life, or is he as dangerous as his nightmares suggest?
As they learn to trust one another, the outside threats worsen. Are they linked to the man with no past? Or is the real danger still outside waiting … and watching them both?
Barnabas Tew & The Case of the Missing Scarab took me by surprise & made me laugh through my nose multiple times; it’s a quirky, lighthearted mystery with some interesting Egyptian mythology throughout.
It’s taken me over 6 months but I finally finished Outlander a couple of weeks ago! The reason it took me so long is because I was reading it alongside & then between other books; but, I can’t say I regret being immersed in this story for so long – Diana has done an incredible job with this book & I can’t wait to continue the series.
This book contains scene of a sexual nature & violence throughout.
As part of my 2018 reading challenges I told myself I would read at least one Doctor Who novel a month – last month I flunked & ran out of time so I didn’t end up reading one… so when I picked up The Feast of the Drowned I was super excited. For that reason, it sucks so badly that I didn’t really enjoy it.
I hate it when people say a month flew by, but seriously – what happened to June? I don’t even know how to open this post because I can’t remember anything about last month…
If you follow me on Twitter you’ll know I’m royally obsessed with our brand new Princess; Meghan is a smart, beautiful & caring woman that I’m sure will bring incredible things to our monarchy… but, before her relationship with Prince Harry I knew nothing about Meghan, so buying this book was an absolute must for me. Andrew Morton did not disappoint & I thoroughly enjoyed every page of this book.
I’ve had this tag on my to-write list since April when Jessica of ReadingWithJessica did it – you can find her version of the tag here.
Auto-Approved: who’s one author whose books you automatically want to read, regardless of what they are about?
I have two! Laura Lam & Zoe Marriot 😍
When I met Heloise Chancey in She Be Damned I fell in love – but I fell in love with her even more in A Necessary Murder. Heloise was even more fierce in the second of her mystery books & the plot she participated in was full of even more suspense than the first. I’m obsessed with this series & cannot wait for the next book.
I was sent this book by Legend Press in return for an honest review.
This book contains scenes of a sexual nature, discussions of murder & extreme violence, as well as characters prejudice against those of Asian descent
