    Fifty-Fifty By Steve Cavanagh|Review

    You don’t review books long before you come across the name Steve Cavanagh.  The name is synonymous with the Thriller genre and if you haven’t read anything penned by this ingenious man, then why not? Fifty-Fifty is his new offering. Fifty-Fifty is a blast to the genitals.  Its swift, precise and you are left reeling on the floor.   I am obsessed with courtroom dramas.  This began when I was a member of a Jury – the atmosphere, the tension and the responsibility emits a fizzing spark within me.  Watching and waiting to see just how it is going to pan out.  Sisters.  Surely, they are united in shared family experiences? …

    Review: The Dilemma by B.A. Paris

    The Dilemma.  To tell someone something that will not only shatter one world, but many.  What more could you possibly want in a psychological thriller?  My attention was immediately stolen.  I was hungering for the words contained in this explosive novel.  I particularly enjoyed the element of older characters being in the forefront.  There unique take on life, their emotions and their reactions when they are faced with the explosive ramifications that life can throw at you.  I was deeply curious to see how the author would weave a highly addictive plot that would have me hooked by the end of the first chapter.  I cant applaud B.A. Paris enough…

    Review: Our Bloody Pearl by D.N. Byrn

    I received a free copy of the book from the author in exchange for an honest review.  All thoughts are my own.  The world building in Our Bloody Pearl was transcendent and vibrant, the characterisation was strong and overall this was an entertaining read.  The sea calls to me; in the tow of the tide and the salt in the breeze.  But it calls to me loudest the moment the storm hits Perle hates humans.  Why wouldn’t she?  Dear god, she’s a mermaid (known as a siren) and her beauty and rawness has been captured by a complete dickwad of a pirate, Kiran.  She is ruthless, a savage and will…

    Blog Tour: Degrees of Guilt by H.S. Chandler

    Holy crap…What an opening chapter!  Such violence and degradation.  What would break a woman down so much that she cracks her husband’s skull open and calmly phones the police whilst her his brains trickle out onto the immaculately polished floor.  Are things as they seem or is Maria a cold-blooded killer?  Is it pre-meditated and what’s the reason behind wanting him dead?  Can you honestly say you couldn’t imagine yourself killing another human being, no matter the reasons or motive?  If you say absolutely not, I would challenge that thought, any human has the innate ability to carry such basal actions out.  Chandler takes us there – straight out of…
