Welcome to!

June’s Author of the Month is Eve Seymour who brings us a new series featuring psychologist, Kim Slade. Beautiful Losers tackles big issues such as Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD), anorexia and stalking. Eve Seymour has taken these burning issues that are regularly highlighted in our newspapers and included them in her new suspense novel. Seymour has produced an addictive and suspenseful novel which had me gripped. This is a brilliant start to a promising new series.

Crime writer, Sheila Bugler literally raved about June’s Fresh Blood who is Robin Wasserman and her adult debut, Girls On Fire. Wasserman is well-known for her YA novels and this is her first crossover which could be classed as a YA/Adult novel. Sheila was blown away by this novel and it was a no-brainer to highlight this novel on our FB page. Check out Sheila’s review and Robin’s answer to Sheila’s probing questions.

Reviews page in June include Steve Cavanagh, Lindsey Davis, Melanie Raabe, Robert Crais with more to come later in the month!

The Penguin microsite features Howard Linskey and the second in his new series involving DS Ian Bradshaw, Behind Dead Eyes. Howard has quickly garnered himself a wide readership and praise from established crime writers. If you haven't tried him already, then this is a good time to experience this talented writer.

Now the British Library have re-printed a couple of this author’s titles, making them available for the first time at a very reasonable price!

Sheila Bugler celebrates the release of her latest D.I. Ellen Kelly novel, All Things Nice by giving her with her Top Ten crime reads of all time. Sheila has come up with a very eclectic mix and ones I know readers will want to investigate further!
