The Innocent Wife – Amy Lloyd

I am so glad I never read the blurbs. This has such an unusual start that the blurb would have spoilt. A great hook and grab beginning.

A little creeped out by the main character so far. Only fourth chapter in so we see but not sure if I’m going to like her yet…

Okay about 30% through this story and I’m struggling to find a connection to the main character. Still not liking her and the story although well written has not grabbed my attention. I will continue as I’m on the second faze of the story to see if I can get into this story.

Sorry this story was not for me. Disliked Sam all the way through and the ending was obvious to me.


One way or another – Mary J Williams

One of my favourite romantic authors at the moment. All the ingredients you need for a romantic read with likeable characters and a feel of comfort food but for your mind while reading. Any fan of romance stories can’t go wrong with this author or this story.

Unraveling Oliver – Liz Nugent

Warning this story could be upsetting for some readers in the first chapter…

This story starts out brutally but has such a strong storyline you be glued to the story. Brilliant from start to finish…

There is much to add without giving the story away sorry so I will leave it brief.

“The Unity Game” is science fiction with philosophy


A New York banker is descending into madness.

Metaphysical thriller and interstellar mystery, this is a ‘complex, ambitious and thought-provoking novel’ from an exciting and original new voice in fiction.
