Mortmain Hall

Great read

I heard Martin Edwards speak at the Isle of Wight Literary Festival some time ago and was keen to read this, his latest novel. It is very well researched, a book steeped in the the 1930’s. A classic whodunnit. I have always loved Agatha Christie and this is one of the few books that has matched hers. I loved the character of Rachel Saverneck. A great read, highly recommend.

No Stone Unturned

Great read

A book I have very much enjoyed recently is Pam Lecky’s ” No Stone Unturned”, the first in a series to feature her Victorian heroine Lucy Lawrence. Here’s my review on Amazon:

Absolutely loved this book. An easy, well plotted , exciting read, with lots of fascinating insights into Victorian England seamlessly knitted into the story. I loved the central character of Lucy, strong and sassy. I really look forward to more of her adventures. My husband loves Sherlock Holmes and said this book reminded him very much of his books.”

Phoebe Morgan: The Doll House

Great read

Earlier in the year I was lucky enough to have the editor Phoebe Morgan critique the synopsis and opening chapters of my new novel “Behind the Smile”. Her comments were extremely insightful and encouraging. Little did I realise that she was about to publish her debut novel “The Doll House”, a gripping psychological thriller. It has been phenomenally successful and quickly reached best seller rank on Amazon. I gave it 5 stars and this is my review: “Excellent debut novel by Phoebe Morgan. Gripping, lots of twists and turns that work very well. Highly recommend. Read in one day.”
