Blog Tour: “The Accusation” by Zosia Wand

I have just finished writing my review for this book. It will appear only blog on June 25th as part of a “blog tour”. I’ve not been involved in one previously, so hopefully it will be a success. Please drop in on the other venues.

NetGalley #10: “The Case of the Fool” by E.V. Harte

“The Case of the Fool” by E. V. Harte This was a review copy kindly provided by NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. This is the second mystery from the pen (laptop? tablet? quill?) of E.V. Harte to feature her gloriously bonkers heroine, Dolly Greene, aka The Tarot Detective, and it is…

Day 106/365

Sadly I am coming the end of this rather fine novel. I think it is among the best Charlie Parker tales that John Connolly has so far written and I now have a year, maybe more, to wait for the next instalment. Still, this most recent trip to Portland, Maine, has been a blast!

Day 105/365

A pleasant day with the weather today. We managed to spend some time on the patio and discuss the cruise we have booked. The plants seemed to approve of our decision.

Day 104/365

Sarah and I are pondering booking a cruise holiday. Sarah has been on several cruises so far and is due on another in a few weeks. I have never been on one and am a little reluctant unless the cruise is perfectly suited for me. The cruise we are thinking about is on the ship…

Day 103/365

While attending my fortnightly writing group at the new Halifax library, I was pleased to see a poster advertising an upcoming event with A.A. Dhand for which I already have tickets. Dhand is a local writer from Bradford who has, to date, written two novels about a Bradford detective named Harry Virdee. I have read…
