‘The Lost Girl,’ by Carol Drinkwater: Book Review

Alright, I have to be honest before I start this review: I didn't finish this book. That's only happened twice before: Moby Dick and Love in the Time of Cholera, both of which bored me to tears (unpopular opinions, I know, but here we are). So all of the following opinions are based on only reading half of The Lost Girl. Read on if you want, I hope I don't bore you as much as this book did me.

‘Fiction Can Be Murder,’ by Becky Clark: Book Review

Star Rating: ★★★✰✰ A murder-mystery where the main character (and suspect) is a murder-mystery writer, you say? Count me in! Mystery writer Charlee Russo is having a fairly normal day, or so she thinks. A phone call to say her agent is dead rocks her world in more ways than she could have imagined.

‘Let The Dead Speak’, by Jane Casey: Book Review

This book was bought as a gift for me, and I’m going to start this review by saying that I was a little disappointed when I realised it was the seventh in a series. How could I read it when I hadn’t read any of the others, that’s just madness!
