A Justifiable Madness - AB Morgan

I’ve been eagerly awaiting this blog blitz so I can share my review of this entertaining novel with you all. Bloodhound Books has fast become a reliable publisher for crime fiction titles, and A Justifiable Madness is proof of that.

Blog Tour | Book Review: The Second Captive by Maggie James

The Second Captive - Maggie James

Stockholm syndrome: the psychological tendency of a hostage to bond with his or her captor.

I’m delighted to be closing the blog tour for The Second Captive alongside Pageturnersnook. As soon as I read the blurb for this book, I wanted in, the concept of Stockholm syndrome has always fascinated me and I’m happy to report, James portrayed it brilliantly.

But Beth cannot forget that her abductor is also a killer. And she has evidence to prove it…

Book Review: Frailty by Betsy Reavley

Frailty - Betsy Reavley

I was checking out on Amazon a week or so ago and in my haste to place my order, I accidentally clicked the ’30-day Amazon Prime trial’ button. At first, I was deeply annoyed, but alas, I’m a member for a month so I thought I’d make use of the ‘borrow a book’ feature, I chose Frailty. Arguably, the best error and decision I’ve made in weeks, as I now have my second five star read of 2017!

Book Description:

When eight-year-old Hope Bird disappears without a trace, from the idyllic village where she lives, life for her family will never be the same again.

Soon a suspect is identified but this is only the beginning.
