Blog Tour: Best Friends Forever (Margot Hunt) @HuntAuthor @TLCBookTours

Screen Shot 2018-01-09 at 9.16.46 PM.png

Good Morning and welcome to my stop on the first leg of the blog tour for Margot Hunt’s Best Friends Forever!   This is one of my most anticipated releases for 2018; I’ve been anxiously awaiting its release for MONTHS!   Now that it is almost here (January 23rd!), I am gearing up to dive in and I figured, what better way to get excited about this book than to share an excerpt with you!

First, let’s check out the synopsis:

Kat Grant and Alice Campbell have a friendship forged in shared confidences and long lunches lubricated by expensive wine. Though they’re very different women—the artsy socialite and the struggling suburbanite—they’re each other’s rocks. But even rocks crumble under pressure. Like when Kat’s financier husband, Howard, plunges to his death from the second-floor balcony of their South Florida mansion.

Howard was a jerk, a drunk, a bully and, police say, a murder victim. The questions begin piling up. Like why Kat has suddenly gone dark: no calls, no texts and no chance her wealthy family will let Alice see her. Why investigators are looking so hard in Alice’s direction. Who stands to get hurt next. And who is the cool liar—the masterful manipulator behind it all.

This one gives me some serious Mary Kubica vibes!  I cannot wait to dive into this one.  Stay tuned, as I’ll be on the blog tour later this month with a full review, but, until then, here is an exclusive excerpt for your perusal!

Blog Tour: Anything for Her (GJ Minett) @BonnierZaffre @GJMinett

Good morning and welcome to my stop on the Bonnier Zaffre blog tour for Anything for Her by GJ Minett!

I am lucky enough to be able to share an extract with everyone for my stop, but, first, let’s check out a synopsis for this fabulous book!

You’d do anything for the one that got away . . . wouldn’t you?

When Billy Orr returns home to spend time with his dying sister, he bumps into his ex-girlfriend Aimi, the love of his life. He might not have seen her in eleven years, but Billy’s never forgotten her. He’d do anything for her then, and he’d do anything for her now.

When Aimi tells him that she wants to escape her abusive husband, Billy agrees to help her fake her own death. But is she still the Aimi that Billy remembers from all those years ago? 

Once Aimi disappears, Billy has to face the possibility that perhaps she had different reasons for disappearing – reasons that might be more dangerous than she’s led him to believe . . .

Sometimes trusting the one you love is the wrong thing to do.

AH!  Doesn’t that sound fantastic??!!  I cannot wait to dive into this one.  If you are impatient (like me!) then you can find this book in e-book format NOW!  Otherwise, the paperback release is in March!  Be sure to mark your calendars either way!!

Now, keep reading for an extract…

Blog Tour: Hell to Pay (Rachel Amphlett) @RachelAmphlett @emmamitchellfpr

Screen Shot 2017-11-19 at 8.12.03 AM.pngGood morning and happy Sunday!! Today, I am so thrilled to be hosting a spot on the Hell to Pay blog tour, the fourth book in the Detective Kay series, by Rachel Amphlett!

This series holds a near and dear place in my heart; not only is this series suspenseful, fast-paced and filled with non-stop action but Amphlett was the first author who ever approached me for a review on Clues and Reviews.  Cue the nostalgia.

After reading Amphlett’s previous novels in the series (Scared to Death, Will to Live, and One to Watch) I am so excited to tackle book four.  Shall we check out the synopsis?

When a road traffic accident on a dark autumn night uncovers a disturbing conspiracy, Detective Sergeant Kay Hunter’s investigation exposes a ruthless serial killer exploiting vulnerable young women.

With her enemies unmasked and her career spiralling out of control, Kay’s determination to seek vengeance for the victims brings her dangerously close to those who want to silence her.

Undeterred, she uncovers the real reason behind a plot to destroy her career and sets in motion a terrifying chain of events.

Could Kay’s need for revenge be her undoing, or will she survive to see justice served?

For my spot on the tour today, I am incredibly excited to be able to bring you an extract!

Keep reading for a glimpse into the world of Detective Kay in Hell to Pay!

Blog Tour: Killing State (Judith O’Reilly) @judithoreilly #killingstate

Killing State.pngGood morning and welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Killing State by Judith O’Reilly.   I am thrilled to be able to bring you a review as part of my stop today.

Every so often, I find myself in the mood for an action thriller. Killing State, the newest (and third!) novel by Judith O’Reilly, seemed to fit this bill for me.  A perfect blend of an action thriller, political thriller and romance thriller, from the first pages, I was captivated by O’Reilly’s prose; I had to keep turning the pages.

As the novel opens, we are introduced to Michael North, a man with a bullet in his brain from his time spent in the war that has heightened his neural pathways and has made him a killing machine.   Working for a government agency (known as The Board), he is thrown off his game when he is ordered to kill a woman, Honor Jones, who cannot seem to keep herself out of trouble while trying to do the right thing.   Conflicted, North must decide what to do. Does he follow orders? Does he let her go?

Blog Tour: Bad Sister (Sam Carrington) @sam_carrington1 @AvonBooksUK

Screen Shot 2017-10-27 at 7.51.19 PM.pngGood Morning and welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Bad Sister, the newest novel by Sam Carrington.  Sam Carrington is an author that I admire. I LOVED Saving Sophie so I cannot wait to read Bad Sister.  As part of my stop, I am thrilled to be able to bring you an extract.  But first, let’s check out a synopsis of the novel, shall we?

The gripping psychological thriller everyone is talking about, from the author of Saving Sophie.

 Sisters. Allies. Liars.

 Stephanie is scared for her life. Her psychologist, Connie Summers, wants to help her face her fears, but Connie will never really understand her. Stephanie’s past has been wiped away for her own protection. Stephanie isn’t even her real name. But then, Dr Summers isn’t Connie’s real name either.

And that’s not all the women have in common. As Stephanie opens up about her troubled relationship with her brother, Connie is forced to confront her own dark family secrets.

When a mutilated body is dumped in plain sight, it will have devastating consequences for both women.

Who is the victim?

Who is to blame?

Who is next?

Gripping, tense and impossible to put down, Bad Sister will have fans of Sue Fortin, B A Paris and Linda Green hooked till the final page.

Doesn’t that sound absolutely brilliant?  I know that this book is moving to the top of my TBR pile!

Keep reading to check out an extract from Bad Sister!

Blog Tour: Beneath the Skin (Caroline England)

Screen Shot 2017-09-18 at 12.34.29 PM.png

Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for the debut novel by Caroline England, Beneath the Skin!

I am so excited to be bringing you an extract of this book your way, but first, let’s check out a synopsis of this thriller!

No-one remembers your past. But you do.

‘Antonia, Antonia. My name is Antonia.’

It’s been her name for many years. But sometimes, like tonight, she forgets.

Antonia has a secret. A secret so dark and so deep that she can barely admit it to herself. Instead, she treats herself to Friday night sessions of self-harm while her husband David is at the pub, and her best friend Sophie is drinking too much wine a few doors down.

Nobody close to her knows the truth about what the teenage Antonia saw all those years ago. No-one, that is, except her mother. But Candy is in a care home now, her mind too addled to remember the truth. Antonia is safe. Isn’t she?

The lies start small. They always do. But when the tightly woven story you’ve told yourself begins to unravel, the truth threatens to come to the surface. And then what’s going to happen?

Aren’t you just dying to know what the secret is??  I know that I am!

Keep reading to check out an extract from the Beneath the Skin!

When a burned body is found in a disused signal box, suspicion falls on lonely teenager Gabriel Webb. There’s no doubt he was at the scene of the crime, but does he really deserve what awaits him in prison?

DS Imogen Grey is certain there’s more to the case than meets the eye. But while she struggles to convince those around her of the truth, her partner DS Adrian Miles is distracted by his own demons.

When a brutal double murder is reported, their investigation is stopped in its tracks. Is the body in the box even who they thought it was? The duo realise Gabriel might have been locked up for a crime he didn’t commit. But with enemies watching Gabriel’s every move, they may be too late.

Miles and Grey are back in the thrilling new novel from bestselling author Katerina Diamond, perfect for fans of Karin Slaughter and M.J. Arlidge.

I don’t know about you, but any book that is perfect for fans of Karin Slaughter makes it to the top of my TBR pile!

Blog Tour: Snare (Lilja Sigurdardottir) @lilja1972 @OrendaBooks

Screen Shot 2017-10-17 at 1.45.18 PMGood Afternoon and welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Snare by Lilja Sigurdardottir.

As of lately, it is very rare for me to read the back of a novel and to be hooked immediately by the synopsis. However, from the second I read the blurb for Snare, a book which will be first novel in a trilogy, I was completely compelled to read the book immediately.

A young mother, Sonja, desperate for financial stability and win full custody of her son, begins smuggling cocaine into Iceland and finds herself wrapped up in the Reykjavik criminal world. Now that I have finished the novel, the only thing I am wondering is how soon I can get my hands on the second novel. I need more of Sigurdardottir’s writing in my life.
