Halcyon is the answer for anyone who wants to escape, but paradise isn’t what it seems.

A self-sustaining community on a breathtakingly beautiful island, Halcyon is run for people who want to live without fear, crime or greed. Its leader has dedicated her life to the pursuit of Glam Moon, a place of eternal beauty and healing, and believes the pathway there can only be found at the end of pleasure.

On the heels of tragedy, Martin Lovegrove moves his family to Halcyon. A couple of months, he tells himself, to retreat from the chaos and grind. Yet he soon begins to suspect there is something beneath Halcyon’s perfect veneer. As the founder captivates his young family, Martin sets out to discover the truth of the island, however terrible it might be, where something so perfect hides unimaginable darkness beneath… Continue reading “Blog Tour | Book Review: Halcyon by Rio Youers”

Blog Tour | Book Review: Good Samaritans by Will Carver #GoodSamaritans #SixBottlesOfBleach

GOOD SAMARITANS AW PR1.indd

Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Good Samaritans by Will Carver, it’s my pleasure to be sharing my review with you all today.

One crossed wire, three dead bodies and six bottles of bleach

Seth Beauman can’t sleep. He stays up late, calling strangers from his phonebook, hoping to make a connection, while his wife, Maeve, sleeps upstairs. A crossed wire finds a suicidal Hadley Serf on the phone to Seth, thinking she is talking to The Samaritans.

But a seemingly harmless, late-night hobby turns into something more for Seth and for Hadley, and soon their late-night talks are turning into day-time meet-ups. And then this dysfunctional love story turns into something altogether darker, when Seth brings Hadley home…

And someone is watching…

Dark, sexy, dangerous and wildly readable, Good Samaritans marks the scorching return of one of crime fiction’s most exceptional voices. Continue reading “Blog Tour | Book Review: Good Samaritans by Will Carver #GoodSamaritans #SixBottlesOfBleach”

Ramblings from my pages… #7

On Wednesday, I said you’d be getting a double dose of ramblings this week to make up for no rambling post last Sunday. So, welcome to the seventh instalment of Ramblings from my pages… This post was inspired by It’s Book Talk’s “5 on Friday: Things I’m Loving Lately” – it differs slightly, similar in that it will feature bookish and non-bookish topics, but different in that I will ramble about things I’m loving, hating, wishing for, links I’ve enjoyed, life updates – you name it, I may just ramble about it. The only staple feature of this post will be concluding it with a cool link I found around the web.

Today’s ramblings topics: Worry Dolls (an anxiety tool), Nonfiction November, How Long ’til Black Future Month? and Jussie SmollettWhether you read the entire post or jump to the section(s) you’re interested in, I hope you enjoy my ramblings. Note: if it’s green, it’s a link, click it!

Blog Tour | Book Review: The Lingering by SJI Holliday #TheLingering

The Lingering - SJI Holliday

It’s my absolute pleasure to kick off the blog tour for this five star novel from SJI Holliday, The Lingering. I feel like this book doesn’t even need a blurb, you just seen that orginal, creepy cover and immediately want to read this novel; the excitement only increases once you find out it’s part psychological thriller, part ghost story!

bookdescription

Married couple Jack and Ali Gardiner move to a self-sufficient commune in the English Fens, desperate for fresh start. The local village is known for the witches who once resided there and Rosalind House, where the commune has been established, is a former psychiatric home, with a disturbing history.

When Jack and Ali arrive, a chain of unexpected and unexplained events is set off, and it becomes clear that they are not all that they seem. As the residents become twitchy, and the villagers suspicious, events from the past come back to haunt them, and someone is seeking retribution…

At once an unnerving locked-room mystery, a chilling thriller and a dark and superbly wrought ghost story, The Lingering is an exceptionally plotted, terrifying and tantalisingly twisted novel by one of the most exciting authors in the genre.
