Three Amazing Things About You by Jill Mansell

In a dramatic novel that explores love, loss and medical miracles, Three Amazing Things About You by Jill Mansell is one of those special books that makes you appreciate the life you’ve been given. The first of the three perspectives in this book is that of Hallie, a twenty-eight-year-old cystic fibrosis sufferer who is on the transplant list for a new set of lungs. She has her good days and bad days, but knows that on the whole her condition is slowly deteriorating and is desperate to enjoy the time…

Curtain Call by Anthony Quinn

An exciting new novel that mixes history with both mystery and romance, Curtain Call by Anthony Quinn is a well-researched novel of the 1930s. The book begins with West End stage actress, Nina Land, meeting renowned artist, Stephen Wyley, for a hotel room tryst. Upon leaving the room, Nina interrupts an attempted murder in another room, allowing the victim to escape and giving her a glance at the potential killer. It soon transpires that she is a witness to the identity of the Tie-Pin Killer, who has recently been killing…

Hollywood Strip by Shamron Moore

Upon opening Hollywood Strip by Shamron Moore, I was expecting a fun tale of romance and celebrity, and was disappointingly met with more of the ‘strip’ part of the title. The book begins with an introduction to the protagonist, Callie Lambert, and her recent move to LA from her dreary hometown in Michigan. This first scene dives straight into nudity as Callie strips off in a photo shoot for Coquette magazine, later to learn that her efforts were in vain as they have gone with another model. She is desperate…

The Snow Queen by Alana Albertson

A brief novella with all the magic of the ballet, The Snow Queen by Alana Albertson features a disappearance case that covers five years in the short novella format. The story begins five years ago at the annual Cambridge Ballet performance of The Nutcracker, with their Sugar Plum Fairy, Svetlana, having disappeared without trace straight after the performance. Since then, a ballet dancer has disappeared each year after The Nutcracker’s closing night, despite the increase in police protection around the theatre. Protagonist, Nieves Alba, was a dancer in that first…

Dead Simple - Shirley Wells

*Warning: May contain spoilers for previous books in the series* With this eighth instalment to the series, I’m pleased to say that Dead Simple by Shirley Wells proves that the Dylan Scott Mystery series is far from losing its charm. Anyone who has read the previous books will remember ‘Simple’ Stevie, the friendly local of Dawson’s Clough who helped Dylan to solve his first case. He was harmful enough, liking nothing better than wandering the streets of the town and collecting interesting newspaper clippings. However, now Stevie has been murdered…

REVIEW: Endurance by Jay Lake

Endurance by Jay Lake

*Warning: Contains spoilers for book one* Hoping for some much need improvement from the first book, I decided to persevere and read Endurance by Jay Lake, the second in the Green series. The book begins with Green residing in the mountains with Ilona and her daughter, minor characters who were introduced briefly in book one. In her pregnant state, Green has been hoping to live a quiet life until the birth of her baby, leaving the people of Copper Downs to sort out their own affairs after the introduction of…
