And I’m back at it. More Feeding for the Authors, and I’m particularly keen to do this as the first reviews are in for The Making of Meredith and they are great, which makes it all worth while. You can check out the Meredith reviews in the US here, and in the UK here. They seem to have the measure of Meredith!
Now on with my own reviews:
Not my usual read at all, I rarely read fantasy adventure novels, but as Liz Wixley, is a Bristol author, I thought I’d make an exception, and I’m glad I did. I thoroughly enjoyed this dark tale, and loved the premise of the book written by the devil, a sort of counter Arc of the Covenant. I immediately empathised with Isobel, and was drawn along with her on this adventure. I found the expected monsters, evil doers and hero’s, which I usually avoid, but this is written in a way that hooked me in and kept me turning pages. An apocalyptic journey that I’d recommend.
A good entertaining read. What begins as an interesting assignment for down on her luck actress, Rita, soon becomes a mystery for her to solve, as she takes on the coaching of Eileen, a mother accused of murder. I wasn’t convinced on the portrayal of how Rita’s son was rescued, but other than that an enjoyable read.
A good old fashioned thriller that keeps you turning the pages. Sally is a nice normal girl, kind and generous in her actions to the odd man at work Keith. Keith is a poor victim of an abusive mother, and you know immediately Sally throws him an innocent smile, he is going to harm her, despite his best intentions. Well written with great sympathy for poor old Keith. I won’t tell you if he does harm her, have a read and find out.
