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…

A Christmas Reunion by Susanna Fraser

A romantic novella for the festive season, A Christmas Reunion by Susanna Fraser is a historical romance of both lost and forbidden love. Five years ago, Lady Catherine Trevilian was caught in a compromising situation with Gabriel Shepherd, causing him to be sent away to the army.

REVIEW: Dead End by Shirley Wells

Dead End by Shirley Wells cover

I always look forward to reading the next book in the Dylan Scott Mystery Series, but this time, Dead End by Shirley Wells provided even more than the usual thrill. In a storyline that was subtly foreshadowed at the end of the last book, Dylan Scott has begun receiving death threats over the phone, claiming that he will get what’s coming to him. Having built up a long list of enemies in his days on the force and as a private investigator, Dylan has no idea where to begin until he…

Deadly Shadows by Shirley Wells

On beginning book six in the Dylan Scott Mystery series, I knew Deadly Shadows by Shirley Wells would return us to the dreary town of Dawson’s Clough, but I hadn’t expected an undercover operation. Having been dismissed from the police force before becoming a private investigator, Dylan Scott had been working undercover as David ‘Davey’ Young, and was associated with the ruthless Joe Child. Child is known to the police and to Dylan as a dodgy character, who always seems to have an alibi when his enemies turn up dead….

REVIEW: Dying Art by Shirley Wells

Dying Art by Shirley Wells cover

Returning to the Lancashire town of Dawson’s Clough, Dying Art by Shirley Wells marks the fifth instalment of the Dylan Scott Mystery series – a series which shows no sign of slowing down. Private investigator, Dylan Scott, is sitting in his office waiting for business when an old girlfriend of his turns up to present him with a case. Maddie Chandler’s sister, Prue, was found dead in her home in Dawson’s Clough, with the police stating that she interrupted a burglar. They aren’t treating it as a murder enquiry, but…

Across the Line

No disclaimer needed for this review – I think I have made my love for hockey pretty clear. I didn’t quite love Across the Line as much as I did it’s predecessor but I still very much enjoyed it. Becca Chen is fiercely independent – a trait that was probably, ironically, strengthened by the parents who insisted she follow their life plans for her and go into the medical profession. Determined to succeed in her chosen profession – owning and managing her own restaurant – it’s pretty much all she…

On the Surface

I’ll start this review with something of a disclaimer – I love hockey. I only recently started to go and see my local team but it has turned into what you could call an obsession and since I started going I have been diligently looking for hockey based romance. That might not seem like much of a disclaimer, but I will say that it’s difficult to find one that gets the balance between the romance and the sport right as well as being well-written. On the Surface delivered on all…
