When she's not writing, Fiona is a gym nut, but only so it means she can eat lots of cake and drink lots of wine - not necessarily in that order.

Mulberry Lane Babies by Rosie Clarke . Review



This is book three in the Mulberry Lane Series . The story is set in war time England and features a strong cast of female characters who have a strong bond between them in their community which keeps them all going during the worrying time of having family and loved ones away fighting . I love these characters and have really enjoyed reading about them again , you don’t need to have read the previous books to enjoy this book . My favorite chatacters in this book were Ellie and Tom , their storylines were terrific with an added villain to really put the cat among the pigeons , it was so engrossing, I did not want to put the book down so I didn’t and read it all in one go and loved every minute ... who needs sleep anyway ! This is a book and series well worth a read as these characters are delightful and the sense of community is heartwarming .

The Last Widow by Karin Slaughter . Review



From the very start of this book it was a complete adrenaline ride of a story , intense and explosive , with danger coming from every angle and not a chance to rest on your laurels while reading it . I found myself sitting down to read a few pages and I peeked up two hours later having no clue what had happened in my own living room as I was completely emerged in the story and these characters . Although there was a lot happening and a good few characters to get to know,  it was not confusing at all , just very very enjoyable,  gritty and high octane . 

If you want the book equivalent of an action film then here you go ! It was brilliant ! 


I received this book in exchange for a review. This book is being published June 13th and will be available from all good booksellers then . Below please check out the links :

Knit Lit by Linda Roghaar & Molly Wolf , Editors. Review






If you enjoy crafts , especially of the wooly nature then I would recommend giving this book a look . The book is filled with many peoples experiences with knitting and it is a touching , funny , and heartfelt book .  There is something that everyone can relate to between these covers and it brought me huge amounts of joy during the reading of it , so much so that I read several stories a few times over . The stories range in size from a few pages long to a few paragraphs , stories are written by men and women and all different age groups are included , everyone of them stories are special in their own way . 
Knitting for me is like a huge dollop of self care in a fluffy squishy package that you don’t need a prescription for and it can be the perfect antidote to help anxiety and promote calm , reading  that I was clearly not the only one who felt this way was really reassuring , reading about other people’s lives and the comfort it can bring a troubled soul was soul feeding goodness  . 
Would I recommend this .... without a doubt.

Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng. Review



When I started this book I was optimistic that I was going to enjoy the story , the blurb had me instantly interested and I was keen to see what all the fuss was about as I had seen this book pop up on so many of my news feeds . This book did not disappoint . The story sets off in the present tense and as the story goes on we get to see parts of the characters past , and juicy it is ! These characters , especially the females are fascinating to read about , their highs and lows make for this book to be very hard to put down so I didn’t and instead read it in one go . My favorite characters were Mia for her strength and gumption , Izzy for her independence and strong will and Pearl for her loyalty and compassion. The story was rich with details and we see the the good and bad sides of the human nature , the weaknesses and what determination can do in the right and wrong hands . If you are looking for a book to completely immerse yourself in then look no further then this one , it’s a rare gem .

Scone Cold Dead by Karen MacInerney . Review

It was terrific being back again reading about the beautiful Cranberry Island and the fabulous Natalie and the folks in the Grey Whale Inn. It’s summertime on the island and they are fortunate enough to have an enthusiastic art teacher giving classes to the Cranberry Island masses and it’s not the only thing turning heads as there has been some devilment going on on the island too with someone damaging boats of the locals ... The island locals become even more uneasy when a body of a young woman turns up !

I loved this story and all the twists and turns to find out what sneaky business was going on on the island and who is to blame . This was a fun read and I loved every page . I read this in one sitting , it’s a brilliant addition to this series . More please! 


I received this book in exchange for an honest review .

This book is being published June 30th and will be available from all good bookstores then. Below please find all the links .
