The Broken Hearts Book Club by Lynsey James

A novel all about overcoming the past and finding hope for the future, The Broken Hearts Book Club by Lynsey James is full of small-town charm. Set in the tiny Yorkshire village of Luna Bay, protagonist Lucy Harper has returned to her childhood home for the first time in eight years. It is the death of her Nana Lily that has forced her to come back, as she left under somewhat of a dark cloud and has never been brave enough to step foot in Luna Bay since. However, it…

A Talent for Trickery by Alissa Johnson

A clever historical romance with a penchant for crime, A Talent for Trickery by Alissa Johnson definitely took me by surprise.

Daughter of the notorious criminal, William Walker, Charlotte and her family moved away from the city after his death in an attempt to build a new life and escape from his old foes.

Stars of Fortune by Nora Roberts

Having read a crime novel by Nora Roberts before, I was unsure what to expect when I received a copy of her new fantasy series, Stars of Fortune. The book begins with Sasha Riggs, a dream seer whose visions predict the future or provide potentially vital warning signs. For the last few weeks she has been having recurring dreams of a group of six individuals (herself included) who each seem to be working together against a powerful force. She is an artist and paints her visions, keen to know exactly…

Career of Evil by Robert Galbraith

Being the huge J.K. Rowling fan that I am, I couldn’t resist heading straight to Waterstones to buy Career of Evil by Robert Galbraith, the third novel written under her masculine penname. This time around, private investigator Cormoran Strike and his assistant, Robin Ellacott, are down to their last two clients and wondering where their next stream of income is likely to come from. It is at this point that the novel gets off to a gripping start with the arrival of a package addressed to Robin and containing a…

Shadows of Self - Brandon Sanderson

Having become a huge Brandon Sanderson fan in recent months, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the next Mistborn book, Shadows of Self. Picking up where the previous book left off, we find Waxillium Ladrian drawn into yet another mystery in the city of Elendel, this time bringing in more mythology established in the original Mistborn trilogy. When Governor Innate’s brother is found murdered in his own home, along with all his criminally-minded party guests, there are no obvious leads to indicate how these murders were carried out….
