Framed and Burning by Lisa Brunette (Dreamslippers #2)

Framed and Burning by Lisa Brunette

Framed and Burning is the second book in the Dreamslippers series by the author Lisa Brunette. I haven’t read the first book in the series, so I was a bit reluctant to pick this book up, however once I’ve started reading, I realized I needn’t have worried, as the book can be easily read as a standalone novel. Cat and her grandmother Grace are both dreamslipper, with the ability to enter other people’s dreams. I was instantly drawn to this aspect because I am very much interesting in dreams, especially lucid dreaming. Of course the movie Inception was never far from […] Read more »

Who Buries The Dead

Who Buries the Dead is the 10th installment in the Sebastian St. Cyr historical mystery series by the author C.S. Harris. I was given a copy with a request to review it for the upcoming book release, however sadly I’m still way behind my reading ‘pile of books’ so I didn’t yet have a chance to get to it. It is one of my next reads, and will be featured here right after. I’m really excited because the book it’s right up my alley and knowing that the book can be read as a standalone, I’m looking forward to finally opening […] Read more »

The Governess and the Stalker by Mark Morey

The Governess and the Stalker is a historical crime fiction novel written by the author Mark Morey. I was contacted with a request to participate in a book tour organized for the author. The story is interesting enough. A rich man called James Devin marries Michelle, his children’s governess and dies during their wedding night in bed. I would argue whether this is a great way to end overall. The new stepmother of his children inherits the huge home and has some troubles getting accepted in the community. Afterall she was but a governess merely days before. Luckily the children […] Read more »

Birth of an Assassin by Rik Stone

Birth of an Assassin by Rik Stone

Birth of an Assassin is the debut novel by the author Rik Stone. I received a copy to read and review as part of a book tour. I do love books with assassins, and I even had an idea of what the book would be – how an assassin is made, due what circumstances he becomes one. The story takes place in Russia – in Moscow back in 1947, just after WWII is over. The main character is a very young Jewish guy called Jez Cornfield, only 15 years old, who wants to become a solder in the Red Army, but […] Read more »

Book Tour/Review And Giveaway: Death Bed By Leigh Russell (DI Geraldine Steel #4)

Death Bed by Leigh Russell

Death Bed is the 4th DI Geraldine Steel book by Leigh Russell. I usually don’t start a book anywhere but at the first in the series, however as I joined the book tour for this author’s novel, there wasn’t enough time to read the previous 3 books. I also didn’t know what to expect, this author being new to me. All I knew is that the storyline takes place in the UK. Geraldine Steel has recently transferred to London, coming from Kent – a place which is looked upon as the backyard of the country by her fellow police officer […] Read more »

Book Tour, Review & Giveaway: Doyle After Death By John Shirley

Doyle After Death by John Shirley

When I got a request to read and review Doyle After Death by John Shirley, I jumped at the opportunity without knowing anything about the book because it was clear that the story was about Arthur Conan Doyle and possibly his beloved character, Sherlock Holmes. I really really love the writings of A.C. Doyle and especially since I learned several years ago that later in his life he also dabbed into the occult, he grew by leaps and bounds in my heart. So first of all my expectations of the book. With a title like Doyle After Death, it meant […] Read more »
