The Housewife - blog tour



Book Description:

Even perfect mothers have secrets…

Leah. She’s the perfect mum to ten-year-old Samuel, wife to loving husband Thomas, head of the PTA. But her closet is full of skeletons - and if the truth gets out, her world could be destroyed.

Annie. She’s the gangster’s moll with a brain. She might be a woman, but she’s not afraid to get her hands dirty to play the men at their own game. But what no one knows is the devastating secret haunting her.

Terry. He’s the king of Glasgow gangland, working his way up from estate to mansion. From drugs to guns, there’s nothing he won’t stop at to grow his dirty money. He might be a hard man, but his weakness is women.

As their three stories collide, the lives of each will never be the same. Because even perfect women hide dark secrets… Don’t they?


This is another superb read by this author.  I’m not going to go into the storyline as the blurb gives you enough of a tease. I will say this is a well written story that had me on the edge of my seat. It sucks you in from the start. 

I pretty much read this in one evening. I just couldn’t put it down. It’s one of those ‘just one more chapter’ stories. Can’t wait to read more from this author. 

If your looking for gangland thrillers then I highly recommend this story.

Ugly Truths - review tour

Add to Goodreads


The first night our eyes met, my world was flipped upside down. I was ripped apart and thrown away, left to pick up the scattered pieces and rebuild what I could. To forget it ever happened.

That seemed like an impossible task with Levi hanging around my bakery each night, a constant reminder of what his friend had done to me. He should have been forbidden—a Grimville Reaper tied directly to the single moment that destroyed me, sent to ensure I never spoke a word about it.

Instead, he threw his own life on the line to protect me. He knew all my secrets, especially the ones I wished to forget. Yet, I knew nothing about him. And despite every ounce of my being warning me against it, I found myself trusting this mysterious man—believing in him.

I didn't expect to fall for him. To find refuge in his storm. But with a heartbreaking past and secrets of his own, could our love still triumph when his ugly truths came into the light?

WARNING: This book is intended for a mature audience only! It contains potential triggers including—but not limited to—sexual assault, mature language, organized criminal behavior, erotic scenes, etc.


This is a fantastic debut novel. 

My heart broke so many times for Nova. She’s so strong and I was really wishing her some happiness. Levi also hasn’t had it easy. These two were made for each other. 

A brilliant read. I can’t wait to read many more from this author.

The Big Ol’ Bike - blog tour


The Big Ol’ Bike by Rachael Clarke

#TheBigOlBike @raclarkewrites @damppebbles #damppebblesblogtours


Book Blurb:

Big things are happening in Little Springs...


Everything about Oliver is small, from his footprint to his glasses-and a trio of bullies never let him forget it. When Oliver receives his grandfather's old bike for his birthday, he rides tall for the first time. But the meanest bully in school doesn't like that at all. Oliver quickly finds himself challenged to a race. Now, he'll have to be bigger than he ever imagined in order to prove heroes come in small packages too.


The Big Ol' Bike is a contemporary slice of life for ages 7-10. It's filled with characters who could live down the street from you, or have a locker beside yours at school. Come hang out with Oliver, Austin, and Sue, as they experience excitement, setbacks, and adventure together. Themes of bullying, family, friendship, confidence, and community are all explored.


Longer than average for this age range, The Big Ol' Bike is meant to be transitional between chapter books and middle grade novels. It's an equally perfect choice for eager readers who fly through the pages, and kids who enjoy taking it chapter by chapter.


WARNING: Reading this book may cause an immediate and urgent need to ride your bike. Do not be alarmed-the feeling will pass soon enough. But don't let it.;)



I was delighted to receive this as I wanted to do something with my grandson over the phone. Every evening when he got into bed he video called me and I read him a chapter of this story. 

Oliver is a very likeable and relatable  young boy. My grandson said he wanted to be Oliver’s friend. 

The storyline is very good and gave us many opportunities to chat about Oliver and what was happening throughout the story. We even called my partner in so he could ask his granda if he had a bike when he was younger. After reading this we have planned to pop on our bikes and go for a ride when we are allowed.
