I have something very special to share with you today, and another first for my blog. Today’s post is the paperback cover reveal for a book extremely close to my heart – Seas of Snow by Kerensa Jennings. Publication date is set for 5th April 2018.
But, before I show you the cover, here’s everything you need to know about the book.
Kerensa Jennings is a storyteller, strategist, writer, producer and professor.
Kerensa’s TV work took her all over the world, covering everything from geo-politics to palaeontology, and her time as Programme Editor of Breakfast with Frost coincided with the life- changing events of 9/11.
The knowledge and experience she gained in psychology by qualifying and practising as an Executive Coach has only deepened her fascination with exploring the interplay between nature and nurture and with investigating whether evil is born or made – the question at the heart of Seas of Snow.
As a scholar at Oxford, her lifelong passion for poetry took flight. Kerensa lives in West London and has developed a career in digital enterprise to help inspire young people across the UK and unlock their potential.
Seas of Snow is her first novel. Continue reading “Book Promo | Cover Reveal: Seas of Snow by Kerensa Jennings (@zinca)”
It usually is always the husband but was it the husband this time?
It’s Always the Husband…unless it’s the best friend.
Kate, Aubrey and Jenny are inseparable at college – friends who promised they’d always be there for each other.
But twenty years later, their friendship is about to take a deadly turn.
Kate married the gorgeous party boy, Aubrey married up, and Jenny married the boy next door, but when one of the friends dies in shocking circumstances, will everyone assume that it’s always the husband? Or could it be the best friend?
IT’S ALWAYS THE HUSBAND is the gripping debut which will keep you guessing until the very last page. Continue reading “Book Review: It’s Always the Husband by Michele Campbell”
The Wife Between Us is one of my highly anticipated 2018 releases, and I’m happy to report, it lived up to my expectations.
When you read this book, you will make many assumptions.
It’s about a jealous wife, obsessed with her replacement.
It’s about a younger woman set to marry the man she loves.
The first wife seems like a disaster; her replacement is the perfect woman.
You will assume you know the motives, the history, the anatomy of the relationships.
You will be wrong. Continue reading “Book Review: The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen”
I’m linking up again with Tina @ Reading Between the Pages to look ahead at the books I’d like to read in January. My TBR won’t be as ambitious this month as I’ve got an exam I need to revise for and two pieces of coursework I really need to make a start on. Also I’m reading a massive King book, so massive it, in my opinion, counts as three books! Anyway, here’s the hopefuls that may finally make the move from the unread shelf to the read.
Under the Dome by Stephen King
In UNDER THE DOME, King has produced another riveting masterpiece. The end of every chapter hooks you into the next, drawing you inside a psychological drama that is so rich, you don’t read it, you live it.
It is the story of the small town of Chester’s Mill, Maine which is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. No one can get in and no one can get out.
The normal rules of society are suddenly changed and when food, electricity and water run short, the community begins to crumble. As a new and more sinister social order develops, Dale Barbara, Iraq veteran, teams up with a handful of intrepid citizens to fight against the corruption that is sweeping through the town and to try to discover the source of the Dome before it is too late . . .

This month’s theme for The Book Bum Club is ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ – pick any book set in a cold, winter, or Christmas setting! Based mainly on the cover, The Life We Bury was the book I chose to read. Renee @ It’s Book Talk said to clear my schedule because this is a one-sitting read; Eva @ Novel Deelights said this was a good one – and I can happily report, they were both correct, 5 stars of correctness!
College student Joe Talbert has the modest goal of completing a writing assignment for an English class. His task is to interview a stranger and write a brief biography of the person. With deadlines looming, Joe heads to a nearby nursing home to find a willing subject. There he meets Carl Iverson, and soon nothing in Joe’s life is ever the same.
Iverson is a dying Vietnam veteran–and a convicted murderer. With only a few months to live, he has been medically paroled to a nursing home, after spending thirty years in prison for the crimes of rape and murder.
As Joe writes about Carl’s life, especially Carl’s valor in Vietnam, he cannot reconcile the heroism of the soldier with the despicable acts of the convict. Joe, along with his skeptical female neighbor, throws himself into uncovering the truth, but he is hamstrung in his efforts by having to deal with his dangerously dysfunctional mother, the guilt of leaving his autistic brother vulnerable, and a haunting childhood memory.
Thread by thread, Joe unravels the tapestry of Carl’s conviction. But as he and Lila dig deeper into the circumstances of the crime, the stakes grow higher. Will Joe discover the truth before it’s too late to escape the fallout? Continue reading “Book Review: The Life We Bury by Allen Eskens”
