Written With Regret - new release

Written With Regret, the first in an all-new emotional duet from USA Todaybestselling author Aly Martinez, is available now!

Every little girl dreams of the fairytale. The one where the white knight rushes in to save her from the clutches of evil. They fall in love, have babies, and live happily ever after.

By that definition, my life should have been a fairytale too.

When I was eight years old, Caven Hunt saved me from the worst kind of evil to walk the Earth. It didn’t matter that I was a kid. I fell in love with him all the same.

But that was where my fairytale ended.

Years later, a one-night stand during the darkest time imaginable gave us a little girl. It was nothing compared to the pitch black that consumed me when I was forced to leave her with Caven for good.

At the end of every fairytale, the happily-ever-after is the one thing that remains consistent. It wasn’t going to be mine, but there hadn’t been a night that passed where I hadn’t prayed that it would be hers.

I owed Caven my life. 
However, I owed that innocent child more. 
And that included ripping the heart from my chest and facing her father again.

The Woman Next Door - blog tour


The Woman Next Door by Sue Watson

‘Have you ever had a secret that you couldn’t tell a soul, even the people you love? I have.’

Lucy has a kind and adoring husband, a job she loves as a teacher, and a house on Mulberry Avenue with floaty curtains and the softest bed linen. After her troubled childhood, she knows life will never be perfect, but it’s pretty close.

She’s also got Amber, right next door. They never run out of things to talk about. Even if Amber’s life – with her high-profile job and handsome, wealthy boyfriend – is more glamorous than Lucy’s.

But then Amber starts to hint that her life isn’t all it seems, and when she comes to Lucy, terrified, saying that she’s getting threatening messages, Lucy promises to protect her.

The closer Lucy gets to anyone, the harder it is to keep her past to herself. But Amber’s boyfriend has left her just when she needs him most, and she doesn’t have anyone else.

Lucy knows all too well that people aren’t always what they seem. Sometimes they have secrets. And they’d do anything to keep them. Lucy’s still sure: she can trust her friend... can’t she?

Gripping and unputdownable, The Woman Next Door tells a story about the dark side of friendship, and has a final twist that will shock every reader. Perfect for fans of The Girl on the TrainFriend Request, and Clare Mackintosh.


The Woman Next Door is my first but definitely not my last read by this author.

Lucy is content with her life. Good job and happily married to Matt. It all,changes when Lucy a local celebrity moves in nearby. Lucy and Amber becomes friends. When Amber tells Lucy she has a stalker she ends up moving in with Lucy and Matt.

Although this was a slow starter for me I really enjoyed it and am looking forward to reading more from this author in the future.

I Am Quinn - new release


I am Quinn blurb – McGarvey Black 

My name is Quinn Roberts. I was murdered and I don’t know why.

Quinn Roberts is dead and she wants to know how it happened. She’s angry, confused and disappointed that her life is over. Most of her friends have moved on and it seems like no one cares who was responsible. Her adult children are in shock but their mother’s death is too painful, so they do nothing.

Soon after her death, Quinn’s husband, Alec, has acquired a new wife and Quinn becomes a distant memory. Only her sister, Erin, and Detective John McQuillan, who leads the investigation, continue to search for answers.

But as the case stalls, the formal investigation is moved to the Cold Case division and Quinn’s family loses hope that there will ever be an arrest.

Can Quinn get the justice she deserves? And, is discovering the truth always worth it?



This is a cleverly written story that will stay with me for a while. The synopsis was interesting enough for me to want to read it and I’m glad I did. 

The main character is Quinn who is dead. We get the story through her and other family members. 

I’m not gonna say much about the storyline. You need to read this. It’s so so good. 

Brilliant well written debut novel that I really enjoyed. I’m looking forward to reading more from this author in the future. 


McGarvey Black, a theatre major in college spent many years in the New York advertising sales business. She sold print and digital advertising and managed sales teams for companies like Conde Nast and WebMD. Ten years ago, she left media to become an executive recruiter for large and small internet companies. No matter how she earned a living, she always wrote…for her, for her friends and family. Two years ago, she left recruiting to pursue a full-time career writing. I am Quinn is her debut novel, she’s written two others and is working simultaneously on the fourth and fifth. Writing has caused her some sleep deprivation as she sometimes wakes in the middle of the night with an idea and must get to her keyboard. She usually writes mystery/thrillers, but occasionally likes to veer off to her other passion — rom-coms. She believes in a ton of prep. If she does her writing work upfront and develops her characters fully, they kind of write themselves. You must always know what each character ultimately wants —that drives the story.

How to Make Time for Me - cover reveal


How To Make Time For Me – Fiona Perrin

About the book

No-one said being a single mum would be easy...

Everyone knows that being a single mother means having no time to yourself. But for Callie Brown, its more exhausting than most. She's juggling the needs of three teenage children, two live-in parents, a raffish ex-husband, and a dog who never stops eating.

The last thing Callie needs is anything more on her plate. So when she bumps (quite literally) into a handsome, age-appropriate cyclist, she's quick to dismiss him from her life. After all, if she doesn't have time to brush her hair in the morning, she certainly doesn't have time to fall in love...

Funny, heartwarming and oh-so-true, this is a novel about motherhood, families, and life after divorce, perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella and Allison Pearson.

Review: Darkest Deeds

Darkest Deeds Darkest Deeds by Cora Kenborn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Talk about starting off with a bang. Not the series this time but the author. I’ve not read anything from this author previously but that’s gonna change. I really hope she writes more dark as this book was awesome.

Niko. A dark assassin with a past that could easily catch up with him... it now has in the form of Ava.

Omg this is probably my favourite to date of this series. It really is so so good. I’ve actually read it twice and with my list of books to read that’s madness lol

This is part of The Cavalieri Della Morte series. Each book can be read as a standalone (honestly they can). I highly recommend you read them all as they are so so good.

Review: Another Life

Another Life Another Life by K.L. Shandwick
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Firstly look at that cover. Wow. I’m not normally one for pointing out a cover but this one gets a round of applause from me.

Another Life is Coles story. One minute he has everything he wishes for and the next minute it’s gone. His life will never be the same again.

His story is beautiful and emotional.
Yikes I could go on and on about this story but you just need to read it for yourself.

Reading this gem reiterates to me that I really need to go and read some more of this authors books.

I’m in awe of this author. She succeeded in taking me on a fabulous journey that gave me goosebumps. Can’t wait to read more from her soon. I highly recommend this story. Brilliant read.

Review: The Playground Murders

The Playground Murders The Playground Murders by Lesley Thomson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is book seven in The Detectives Daughter series. I did something I don’t like doing and I jumped right into this book without reading the previous books. The blurb sounded so good I just had to read it. Having said that I don’t feel as if I lost out reading this as a standalone.

Stella’s dad investigated the murder of a six year old girl forty years ago. When Stella finds a link between the murders and a recent murder she’s about to open a can of worms.

I liked the story of Stella and Jack, with Jacks twins Millie and Justin.

I found this to be a slow starter but a good read also. I’m hoping to read the previous books in this series as soon as I can.

Review: The Women

The Women The Women by S.E. Lynes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’ve read one previous book by this author and loved it so of course I couldn’t resist jumping into another.

This is the story of Samantha a young student who falls quickly for her lecturer Peter. Although people warn her she’s too blinded to see what’s happening.

This is gonna be one of my top reads of this year as it really was so good. The characters are relatable and the storyline is believable,

If your looking for a well written psychological thriller then I highly recommend you read this gem.
I’m so looking forward to reading more from this author in the future.
