The Seventh Miss Hatfield by Anna Caltabiano cover

Establishing a brand new concept is never easy, but that’s part of the joy in reading The Seventh Miss Hatfield by Anna Caltabiano. I was drawn to this series precisely because of its intriguing premise, as a young girl called Cynthia encounters the mysterious Miss Rebecca Hatfield. Miss Hatfield is their newest neighbour, having just moved in across the street, and draws Cynthia to her house one day under the mistake of a parcel being delivered to the wrong house. Despite knowing she shouldn’t talk to strangers, Cynthia accepts Miss…

Summer Reading Photo

This tag was originally created by Enyas Corner. Welcome to another tag post here on Book Chick City! This month I thought it would be fun to think about how I read, and I think these questions are a great starting point to examine your reading habits and perhaps change your approach to reading. 1) How do you find out about new books to read? I usually find out about new books when browsing in my local book shops, especially Waterstones. I love that they usually have tables set up with…

Sea of Love by Susan Donovan cover

Beginning a new romance series set on a holiday island is Sea of Love by Susan Donovan, which introduces us to Bayberry Island and their mermaid mythology. The Flynn family have been living on Bayberry Island for generations, but recent changes to the economy have forced them to turn their fishmonger business into a B&B. This accommodation is currently run by the Flynn’s daughter, Rowan, who was duped by her investor fiancée into signing over what remained of the family’s fortune. She returned to the island in shame, running the…

The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith UK cover

Last year, the announcement that Robert Galbraith is a pseudonym for J.K. Rowling introduced a wave of readers to the disgruntled private detective, Cormoran Strike, who returns in The Silkworm. Our favourite one-legged detective is approached by Leonora Quine, who hires Cormoran to find her husband, Owen, who has been missing for over a week. Owen is a writer, and an unreliable one at that, frequently disappearing to work on manuscripts or to try and garner more publicity. This is the longest he has been away, and Leonora is running…
