Half Way

Welcome to my little Corner and Happy Hump Day everyone.  Have you ever got where you just didn’t know what to post on your blog?  Well the last couple of weeks that was me.  I had even thought about giving up this blog.  I then decided to google search some different ideas and fun things I could post and I did find some create meme ideas.  Here is another great one that I found and thought I would give it a try. 

Now on to the Can’t – Wait Wednesday!

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tressa, at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released.

My can’t wait list is:

A Darker Place By: Rachel Amphlett

Publication Date:  July 12, 2021

DESCRIPTION

The frozen body of a man is discovered in a used car yard on the hottest day of the year, his face contorted by fear and pain.

Detective Kay Hunter and her team are assigned the case, but when they find out who their victim is, their worst fears are realised.

There is another man missing – but is he a victim, or a killer?

With time running out and witnesses afraid to talk, Kay is thrust into one of the most challenging investigations of her career to date. 

A Darker Place is the tenth book in the Detective Kay Hunter series by USA Today bestselling author Rachel Amphlett, and perfect for readers who love fast-paced crime thrillers.

Dead Point (Maggie Blackthorne Book 1) By:  Lavonne Griffin-Valade

Publication Date:  June 15, 2021

DESCRIPTION

Fans of Sheriff Walt Longmire will fall in love with Sergeant Maggie Blackthorne, the spirited protagonist with a tragic past and an acid wit.

“…an engrossing neo-Western thriller in which justice and morality clash.” —Foreword Reviews

When Maggie Blackthorne returns to her hometown after nearly twenty years to serve as an Oregon State Police Sergeant, she expects to deal with the usual suspects—drunk drivers, oxy slingers, and the occasional rural scofflaw.

But after she stumbles upon the bullet-ridden bodies of twin brothers, she realizes she’s stepped into something much more sinister. With little homicide experience, Maggie and her partner, Trooper Hollis Jones, find themselves thrust into the murder investigation.

And when a third man turns up dead, Maggie fears it’s only a matter of time before the killer strikes again. As they race to piece together what happened, Maggie and Hollis discover a tangled web of theft, deceit and deals gone bad.

Faced with multiple motives and several persons of interest, Maggie and Hollis finally catch a break—but are they willing to risk everything to put the murderer behind bars?

Such A Good Girl By:  Willow Rose

Publication Date:  June 21, 2021

I can not wait for this one, I have read all of her books to this series. 

DESCRIPTION

FBI-PROFILER EVA RAE THOMAS FACES A DEVIOUS PLAN IN BESTSELLING AUTHOR WILLOW ROSE’S BLOOD-RUSHING THRILLER OF MURDER AND REVENGE. 

A girl falls from the penthouse floor of an apartment in Washington, D.C.

Media Mogul Richard Wanton owns the apartment and is seen standing on the balcony when the girl falls.

He is accused of killing her, but the FBI is struggling to find enough solid evidence to convict him.

They have a witness, someone who was in the apartment when it happened, but she doesn’t want to talk to them.

She’ll only speak to one person, ex-FBI profiler Eva Rae Thomas. The problem is, Eva Rae Thomas has no interest in talking to her.

As a matter of fact, she’d rather see this woman dead than have to face her.

But Eva Rae Thomas isn’t someone who can leave a case alone, especially not when she starts to ask questions and things aren’t adding up.

As she digs in deeper—with the entire world watching—she soon finds herself in too deep and realizes she can’t trust anyone’s motives. 

But by then, it is too late, and the killer is already tracking her down.

So what are your can’t wait to read? Share in the comments!  I would love to see yours.

Tell Me Something Tuesday

Tell Me Something Tuesday

Hello and welcome to my little corner on the web.  I stumbled across this post while searching for some new ideas for posting on my blog.  And man there are a lot of great ideas besides book reviews, which I haven’t done one of those this year.  I guess it may be time for one of those. I did find this one called Tell Me Something Tuesday and thought I would give it a try.

Tell Me Something Tuesday was hosted by Rainy Day Ramblings, but she has (temporarily?) stopped blogging. So a group of us that had been doing posts (Linda from Book Girl of Mur-y-Castell, Karen from For What It’s Worth, Roberta from Offbeat YA, Jen from That’s What I’m Talking About  and me) decided to get together, come up with some more topics and keep the meme going.Michelle made us a logo and we’re off and running. For more details, check out this post where I reintroduced the meme.

This is my first time with this, I’ll see if I can keep doing this, but when I do join in I will always share next week’s topic at the end of the post. So, today is about…

What books are you looking forward to reading in Summer 2021

 (June – August)?

Wow I have a lot that I would love to read and my (TBR) To Be Read is so long now and gets longer every time I see a new read on Goodreads.  So I have put a little list together. 

1. Web of Lies By: Sally Rigby (I have started this one)

2.  Speak no Evil By: Sally Rigby

3.  Dark Secrets By: Sally Rigby

4.  The Last Sister By: Kendra Elliot

5.  They all Had a Reason By: Michele Leathers

Have you done any of these memes? I would love to hear about it, you can leave your comments in the comment section of this post. I would love to see what you think.

Happy reading everyone!

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

Hello and welcome to Monday

I haven’t done this post in a while as I have been slacking in the reading department.   I also need to get back into reading again this slump has kicked my butt. 

 It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? a place to meet up and share what you have been, and are about to be reading over the week. It’s a great post to organise yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment and er… add to your groaning TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started on J Kaye’s blog and then was hosted by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn here at The Book Date.  Jen Vincent, Teach Mentor Texts, and Kellee of Unleashing Readers decided to give It’s Monday! a kidlit focus. If you read and review books in children’s literature – picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels or anything in those genres – join them.

What I read Last Week

I read nothing last week!

What I am Reading Now

Up Next

I have no idea what to read next right now.  I have a few that are on my TBR pile that I would like to read. 

Happy Reading everyone!

First Lines Fridays

Happy Friday everyone hope that your week was event full.

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  • Finally… reveal the book!

Can we get out now? Lucas asked as the car came to a standstill.

Yes, but stay close while we’re sorting everything out. Can I take the football? Okay, but don’t kick it close to the cars, or you might do some damage. Go over there and stay where we can see you. Jenny pointed at the piece of wasteland directly in from of them.

Web of Lies: A Midlands Crime Thriller (Detective Sebastian Clifford - Book 1) by [Sally Rigby]

A trail of secrets. A dangerous discovery. A deadly turn.

Update

Hello and thanks for stopping by, its been a while since my last post. To be honest I was just not feeling myself lately. I was in a job that I hated and had no interest in reading, blogging or working on my crafts. But I have now quit the job and found one that I am enjoying and feeling like my self again. And once again I am doing all those things that I lost interest in.

If you’re like me, you’re constantly on the lookout for new titles to devour. Well I have found a great author that I really enjoy her name is Sally Rigby. I have read all of her books and I just seen that she has come out with a new one and you guessed it I have and will be starting it tonight. Her new novel is called Web of Lies. I have enclosed the link to this book it you are interested in reading it.https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08XPRZWNP

About Book:

Web of Lies: A Midlands Crime Thriller (Detective Sebastian Clifford - Book 1) by [Sally Rigby]

A trail of secrets. A dangerous discovery. A deadly turn.

Police officer Sebastian Clifford never planned on becoming a private investigator. But when a scandal leads to the disbandment of his London based special squad, he finds himself out of a job. That is, until his cousin calls on him to investigate her husband’s high-profile death, and prove that it wasn’t a suicide. 

Clifford’s reluctant to get involved, but the more he digs, the more evidence he finds. With his ability to remember everything he’s ever seen, he’s the perfect person to untangle the layers of deceit.

He meets Detective Constable Bird, an underutilised detective at Market Harborough’s police force, who refuses to give him access to the records he’s requested unless he allows her to help with the investigation. Clifford isn’t thrilled. The last time he worked as part of a team it ended his career.

But with time running out, Clifford is out of options. Together they must wade through the web of lies in the hope that they’ll find the truth before it kills them.

Web of Lies is the first in the new Detective Sebastian Clifford series. Perfect for readers of Joy Ellis, Robert Galbraith and Mark Dawson.

If you have read it? What were your thoughts?

April May totally has her life in order. Ha. Not really. Yes, she’s the Calm Mom—a social influencer with a reputation for showing moms how to stay calm and collected through yoga, even when life is going totally off script. But behind the scenes, she’s barely holding it all together. Raising tiny humans alone is exhausting. Her kids aren’t behaving, her husband left her for his skydiving instructor, and her top knot proves she hasn’t showered in days.

Jack Gibson has one job—to ensure the media conglomerate that has purchased April’s brand makes money from it. Lots and lots of money. To do this, they’re expanding her influence from Instagram and her blog to a podcast and MyTube channel. There’s even talk about a Calm Mom cookbook.

When a video of the supposed-to-be calm April goes viral and she’s not calm—At. All—Jack is pulled in to ensure it doesn’t happen again. Suddenly, the guy with no intention to ever have children is lost in the land of the tooth fairy and toddler tea parties. When sparks fly between Mr. Mogul and the Calm Mom, he’s not the only one out of his depth. Together they’ll have to figure out if keeping it all together really can lead to happily ever after…Goodreadshttps://www.goodreads.com/book/show/56268982-april-may-fall
