** BLOG TOUR ** Sapphire by Heather Burnside #sapphire @AriesFiction @heatherbwriter

About The Book

Two sisters alone Sophie and Kelsey have always had each other. When their mum is diagnosed with cancer and their dad fails to step up, they’re forced to move into the care system. But Sophie knows they’ll be okay as long as she’s there to protect her sister.

When Kelsey is found a foster family and Sophie can’t join her, Sophie’s left in an unsafe Situation in the home, forced to do things against her will. Finding her own foster family feels like a relief, but it’s short lived when her trust in her new foster parents is betrayed.

With nowhere to turn, Sophie finds herself homeless. But when she finds her new street family, Sophie joins the working girls and her new identity as Sapphire is complete. It’s a hard life working the streets, especially when those around her look to take advantage, but can the dream of one day finding Kelsey keep her going?

Heather Burnside is back with this completely unputdownable, heart-racing series, perfect for all fans of Kimberley Chambers and Martina Cole.

My Thoughts

Sapphire’s story is the final installment in the Working Girls series. Which I will be sad to say goodbye to.

Sophie and Kelsy are unexpectedly left abandoned by their father and finding life hard in the care system.

Poor Sophie (Sapphire) has a rougher time than her sister.

Awful to think that this situation unfortunately does happen in the real world.

This is a heartbreaking read which Heather has written fantastically and you will root for Sapphire to be able to turn her life around.

Well worthy of 5 stars.

My Thoughts

I absolutely adore this series and cannot get enough of Hedgehog Hollow.

This installment focuses on Phoebe’s tale and from the previous book you know exactly where she is from and part of the Grimes.

We soon find out the reasons behind her past and I really felt for Phoebe.

Jessica has that magical touch of writing such sensitive issues but in such a heartwarming way that you just want to plough through the pages with a tissue or two.

Like the other books this is always full of family drama, up and downs, cute Hedgehogs and a real page turner. I highly recommend you pick up this delight.

** BLOG TOUR ** I’ll Never Tell @caseykelleher @Bookouture

About The Book

When we were young, Sarah and I did a terrible thing – but it was only me who paid the price. Now, just when I thought no one from my old life would ever find me, a note is slid under my door: I haven’t forgotten. I haven’t forgiven. FOUND YOU.

My best friend Sarah and I used to spend all our time in a place we called the Doll House. It was just an old, abandoned cottage in the woods behind our house but it was heaven to us. Until one of our games went wrong. And someone ended up dead.

It was an accident, or at least Sarah told me it was. But when I tried to tell the police that I wasn’t involved, they didn’t believe me. When the Doll House Girls were splashed across the newspapers, it was my face they showed under the headlines. I’m the one who stood trial.

Now, twenty years on, I’ve made a new life with a new identity. I have a wonderful husband, Carl, and Jacob, our adorable son. Despite everything in my past, I’m happy.

Then the first note arrives. FOUND YOU. Soon other threats start coming, and the person behind them is clear they’d be willing to hurt my family – to hurt Jacob – to get to me. I know who they are. And I know what they’re capable of. The other doll… The girl who got away with murder.

A totally addictive page-turner packed with heart-stopping twists, if you love Lisa Jewell, Rachel Abbott and The Silent Patient you’ll love I’ll Never Tell.

My Thoughts

Casey Kelleher the Queen of gritty gangland crime is back with a bang This time around we have a physiological thriller and wow is it a corker of a read.

Emma Jayne is just 12 years old when tragic events at the Doll House with her friend Sarah changes her life forever.

I absolutely loved the way the story unfolded within the chapters going between then and now, it’s a creepy read that had me up until the small hours in the night thinking oh just one more chapter.

This had me guessing throughout and really didn’t know who or what to believe, which makes this story so chilling that you are on your toes right though to the last page, what great characters.

Fantastic from start to finish and totally unputdownable, bravo Casey!

About The Book

Within days of wishing she could change her life, Fran Cooper is acting assistant to a celebrity, on a yacht in the Mediterranean, and en route to a tiny Italian island and the glittering Crystal Ball, along with the world’s rich and famous.

When she – quite literally – bumps into a handsome American called Evan, a man able to keep his cool in the face of chaos, the magic really begins.

Evan makes her a promise: no last names, no life stories, just one unforgettable night. Yet Evan belongs at the Crystal Ball and Fran is a gatecrasher. They may be soulmates, but their homes are an ocean apart, and their lives a world apart. They’ll never meet again – unless, on a night like this, everything can change forever…

** PROMO POST ** Brooklyn Monroe Wants It All by Karen Booth @rararesources @karenbbooth

About The Book

She can’t hit the snooze on her biological clock forever…
Love, career, kids—Brooklyn Monroe wants it all. Her beauty company? A triumph. Her love life? Total fail.

At 42, that makes motherhood her top priority. With no man in her life, she’s prepared to fly solo, but her plan is derailed when a mailing list mishap turns Brooklyn into a someone-get-me- pregnant internet meme. Making her PR nightmare go away entails a soul-baring interview on
national TV. And the guy asking the questions? Her all-too sexy ex.

Talk show host Alec Trakas is the king of bad timing. Case in point, his heartbreaking romance with Brooklyn. Alec was all about commitment but Brooklyn was launching her start-up, and forever wasn’t in the cards. Now a shot at his ultimate dream job depends on convincing Brooklyn to spill
the secrets leading to her viral celebrity. It sets Alec’s star rising, but puts Brooklyn in a sea of flirty men. Fate has thrown them back together. Sparks are flying. But is the timing finally right? Because having it all might not be worth the risk of losing each other again.

Purchase link http://mybook.to/bookreview

My Thoughts

This is a must buy for any reader or blogger, who like me uses an good old diary for blog tour dates and then for reviews, notes etc I use the notes on my phone.

Well this handy little log book has everything you could possibly want.

For starters 100 pages to log your reviews depending on your reading speed that could easily be a years worth of reviews in one fancy book all at your fingertips.

The first pages are for you to list your to be read which is a fantastic idea followed by monthly squares for listing book release dates again another brilliant idea, you will never forget a publication date again.

For the actual book review pages you have title and Author, date started and finished star rating a notes section to jot down all the important quotes names etc for your book and then the second section for writing your review, genius!!

A count of stars to colour in so you know when you hit that 50 mark within the log book and also a page of word clouds for those words that inspire you.

The log will let you know when you hit the magic 100 but that’s not all at the back there are pages of notes section which again is super handy.

This neat log book has totally transformed my blogging it is all in one place and the great thing it is set all in black and white so you can really jazz up your log book as much as you want there is so much you can colour in.

As I said at the start of this review this is a must buy for any avid reader and with Christmas just around the corner would make the most wonderful gift.

** BLOG TOUR ** The Family Man by Kimberley Chambers @kimbochambers @randomTTours

The queen of crime Kimberley Chambers is one of my favourite authors and was absolutely thrilled to be on the tour.

About The Book

Meet the Bonds

Kenny Bond is finally out of prison after doing a long stretch for killing a copper, and is determined to get back to life on the straight and narrow.

A family like no other

Kenny’s son Donny might lack his father’s edge but his twin grandsons, Beau and Brett – well, they are Bonds through and through. Like him, they won’t let anyone stand in their way.

But they’re about to meet their match

Family comes before everything else for Kenny, but there’s a feud brewing that could cause murder, and a new family on Dark Lane might bring the Bonds to their knees. Kenny’s determined that nothing, and no one, will threaten his family. But can the Bonds stick together when someone’s out to take them down?

You don’t want to be on the wrong side of this family.
A brand-new series from the queen of gangland crime

My Thoughts

It’s 1975 and Kenny Bond is banged up for 15 years for the manslaughter of a copper of all people longing to get home to his Sharon after getting parole Kenny is released in 1979.

Family is everything to Kenny and determined to go straight, can he??

This is a real page turner that will have you hooked from beginning to end.

This is a well plotted story, with the author managing to make all the characters stories fit so well, Brett and Beau his grandsons are the most evil twins you could ever wish for.

As with any Kimberley Chambers book you will know it’s never pretty, someone will always get hurt and it’s never a happy ending!

I was totally engrossed into the lives of the Bonds, Kenny gets himself into some right sticky situations but you can’t help but love him.

I am over the moon that this is just the beginning of the Bonds.

About The Author

A truly unforgettable character, Kimberley injects authenticity into her gritty gangland crime novels set around the east end.

She came to writing later in life,
having worked as a street trader (being promoted from tea girl to sales when she rugby-tackled a shoplifter), a DJ and a cabbie. Fed up of scraping a living, she set her mind to writing a novel, despite being laughed at by friends and family, who dubbed her ‘a female Del-Boy’.

But with her creative mind, colourful life experiences and memorable covering letter (‘Take a chance on me, you won’t regret it. This time next
year I’ll be wearing Prada, not Primark’), she quickly had five agents knocking at her door and a publishing contract. Fifteen novels and three Sunday Times number ones
later, she’s top of her game and an incredible inspiration.

** PROMO POST ** Falling in Louvre by Fiona Leitch @rararesources @fkleitch

About The Book

Falling in Louvre
‘A heartfelt, funny and romantic caper – a mashup masterpiece!’ – Sandy Barker, author of ‘That Night in Paris’.
Bertrand is King of the Pigeons…
Unofficially. From his perch atop a gargoyle on Notre Dame cathedral, he surveys his kingdom.

He sees Sylvie Cloutier, art lover and ex-antiques dealer, making dinner for her bullying husband Henri,
trapped in their loveless marriage like a bird in a gilded cage. He sees security guard, hopeless romantic and bookworm Philippe Moreau cycling through the streets of Paris in his crumpled uniform, late (again) for his night shift at the museum.

When Sylvie begs her husband to let her go to work, he gets her a job as an evening cleaner at the Louvre. He thinks such a menial position will dispel any ideas about independence she might have, but his plan backfires when she falls in love with kind, gentle Philippe.

They decide to run away together, but there’s a major problem: neither of them has any money. One stormy night in the Louvre, the answer to their prayers falls into their lap… But is it really the solution, or just another, even bigger problem?
What follows is a romantic, wistful but madcap adventure through (and under) the city of lights,
involving a stolen painting, an art heist in reverse, and Eric Cantona. Will love find a way?
