TWO SISTERS by Kerry Wilkinson

They told us he had been missing for nearly two days, that he probably drowned. They told us a lie.

Megan was ten years old when her older brother, Zac, went missing among the cliffs, caves and beaches that surround the small seaside town of Whitecliff. 

A decade later and a car crash has claimed the lives of her parents.

Megan and her younger sister Chloe return to Whitecliff one summer for the first time since their brother’s disappearance. Megan says it’s to get her parents’ affairs in order. There are boxes to pack, junk to clear, a rundown cottage to sell. But that’s not the real reason. 

Megan has come to confront her family’s past after receiving a postcard on the day of her parents’ funeral. It had a photograph of Whitecliff on the front and a single letter on the back.

Z’ is all it read.

Z for Zac.

A totally gripping psychological thriller that will have fans of Louise Jensen, Sue Fortin and The Silent Child absolutely hooked.

About the author

Kerry Wilkinson is from the English county of Somerset but has spent far too long living in the north. It’s there that he’s picked up possibly made-up regional words like ‘barm’ and ‘ginnel’. He pretends to know what they mean.

He’s also been busy since turning thirty: his Jessica Daniel crime series has sold more than a million copies in the UK; he has written a fantasy-adventure trilogy for young adults; a second crime series featuring private investigator Andrew Hunter and the standalone thriller, Down Among The Dead Men.

My Review 

This is not like his Jessica Daniels series in fact this is more like the traditional mysteries I remember reading when I was younger.  It isn’t all about the thrills but deals a lot with the emotions of the two sisters after the untimely death of their parents.

I really enjoyed this book as it held a different kind of fascination for me thst I wasn’t expecting. I love the interactions between the sisters even if one of them is more withdrawn.  Also the interactions between the girls and the village people is unique. 

Kerry has done a wonderful job of cleaning out his characters. Chloe seems to me the more difficult one to pin down she is artistic and is a vegan which seems tondefine her to a point.  Everything is about pointing it out.

Meg has the more harsh problems as she seems to be fighting herself all the time.  Whether it’s food or just trying to learn about herself she is the one that I kept watching.  

Cover reveal Special

🇬🇧http://amzn.to/2stTbwj


🇺🇸http://amzn.to/2sXB1Ej


One girl found dead. Another girl gone…

Long shadows danced on the tin walls. Inside the trunk lay Carrie Miller, wrapped in plastic, arms folded across her ribcage, lips sealed tight forever…

When, a girl’s body is found at a Midlands storage unit, it is too decomposed for Detective Robyn Carter to read the signs left by the killer.

No one knows the woman in blue who rented the unit; her hire van can’t be traced. But as the leads run dry another body is uncovered. This time the killer’s distinctive mark is plain to see, and matching scratches on the first victim’s skeleton make Robyn suspect she’s searching for a serial killer. 

As Robyn closes in on the killer’s shocking hunting ground, another girl goes missing, and this time it’s someone close to her own heart. 

Robyn can’t lose another loved one. Can she find the sickest individual she has ever faced, before it’s too late?

An utterly gripping and darkly compelling detective thriller that will have fans of Robert Dugoni, Angela Marsons and James Patterson hooked from the very start. You will not guess the ending!

My Review

I am a big fan of paranormal books and while I am still not sure what I think of this book which uses the Mediums to solve murders.  While I do believe that psychic events can happen this book put it out a bit further than what I was hoping.

Generally when I do psychic investigations books I want to have something that is less about the mysticism and more about the actual case with the backdrop of a Medium.  I do believe that this book while it wasn’t the best I have read in paranormal it is also not the worst.

I can see a lot of potential in this book and with a series as well and I can see why others would really go in for it.  This is just like watching the psionic style that comes with many fantasy novels.  This is not a fantasy book however and while it does keep things attached pretty well I think that there is always room for improvement with this thing.

The characters I was not really happy with as they seemed like they were always fake.  I do like the fact that it showed that the characters who had the psychic abilities also was the leader of a Church.

 Would I read another of her novels the answer is yes I would.  I see a lot of potential in her characters as well as her story telling.

The Serial Killers Daughter by Lesley Welsh blog tour

The Serial Killer’s Daughter by Lesley Welsh out on 14th June 

UK 🇬🇧 http://amzn.to/2nX40Tn 
US 🇺🇸 http://amzn.to/2p01fQO

Suzanne Tyler barely knew her father. But when she’s given a series of secret diaries and eight mysterious photographs of women from his possessions, she knows she won’t be able to rest until she knows the truth about him. 

To Suzanne’s shock, one of the photos is of her friend Sophie, who died ten years ago in an unexplained and devastating fire.

But Don only met Sophie once, on an unsettling visit he paid Suzanne just days before Sophie’s death… So why did he have a picture of her?

Unable to let Sophie’s memory alone, Suzanne begins to dig into her father’s life. What horrors is she about to unearth in his diaries? And who is it that’s out there, watching her every move?

Chilling and utterly page-turning, The Serial Killer’s Daughter is a compelling thriller, perfect for fans of C.L. Taylor, Rachel Abbott, and Tom Bale.

My review
Reading this book was different then those I have read before in thriller genre.  This book deals a lot with the affects of the victims and not based on the solving of said crime. 

Suzanne was a great character that was looking for a way to live her life as an artist.  She wanted her normal life but what can one do when your biological father is reported to have died.

What I did like about this book was it ended with the chance of another book talking more about the crimes and what caused the issue with the father of Suzanne.

Unfortunately that won’t happen now as Lesley Welsh sadly has passed away but the legacy she has left with this wonderful novel lives on in those who have read it. 

The Black Hornet by Rob Sinclair 

I am very proud as today I have the blog tour for Rob Sinclair’s newest book The Black Hornet

Book Descrition:

What do you do when the love of your life vanishes without a trace? If you’re ex-intelligence agent James Ryker you search for the answers whatever the cost, however much blood and sacrifice it takes…

Six months ago Lisa was taken from Ryker, and he’ll stop at nothing to find out who is responsible and why. Following a trail to Mexico, the ex-Joint Intelligence Agency asset soon finds himself in the firing line of enemies he long thought he’d left behind. Set-up for the murder of a former informant, Ryker is thrown into a crumbling jail run by The Black Hornet, the notorious leader of a Mexican drug cartel. But what connects the cartel to the informant’s murder, and to Lisa’s disappearance? And just who is the mystery American claiming he can help Ryker in his hour of need?

The Black Hornet is the second book in the bestselling James Ryker series. Part Bourne, partReacher, it’s an explosive and action-packed thriller to rival any other.

My Review

I wasn’t really sure what to expect when I agreed to be on this blog tour especially as I hadn’t read the first book in the series.

What I found was a book full of detail in settings that were fairly familiar to me.  I loved the fact thst they used both the USA and Mexico as backdrops in the story.

The story itself was great as it deals with two specific plots.  Ryker is searching for the woman he loves and seemingly will do anything to find Lisa and the second is the trading of arms to drug cartels in Mexico.

This book had a little bit of everything that I could ask for.   I really enjoyed the look inside the jail in Mexico and watched as anything that was bad could and dis happen.

I am now very interested to see just what will happen next.

Shadows by Conrad Jones Blogtour

Book Description:

Suicide. Drugs. Murder.

 DI Braddick is put on the case when a hijacked drug deal has resulted in murder and an eye witness goes missing. When victims are discovered strung up from the rafters of an abandoned fish factory, on the Anglesey coastline, the police are baffled as to what went on. A deserted trawler found at the scene helps Braddick put the pieces together.

 

Could this be the work of a notorious Russian crime family?

 

When an undercover officer goes missing everything points to an informer for the family and it is clear they will stop at nothing to the silence the leak and have their revenge.

 

As the body count rises Braddick will come to realise that no one is safe…

Author Bio:

I am Conrad Jones a 50-year-old Author, originally from a sleepy green-belt called Tarbock Green, which is situated on the outskirts of Liverpool. I spent a number of years living in Holyhead, Anglesey, which I class as my home, before starting a career as a trainee manger with McDonalds Restaurants in 1989. I worked in management at McDonalds Restaurants Ltd from 1989-2002, working my way up to Business Consultant (area manager) working in the corporate and franchised departments.

In March 1993 I was managing the Restaurant in Warrington`s Bridge St when two Irish Republican Army bombs exploded directly outside the store, resulting in the death of two young boys and many casualties. Along with hundreds of other people there that day I was deeply affected by the attack, which led to a long-term interest in the motivation and mind set of criminal gangs. I began to read anything crime related that I could get my hands on.

I link this experience with the desire to write books on the subject, which came much later on due to an unusual set of circumstances. Because of that experience my early novels follow the adventures of an elite counter terrorist unit, The Terrorist Task Force, and their leader, John Tankersley, or `Tank`and they are the Soft Target Series, which have been described by a reviewer as ‘Reacher on steroids

had no intentions of writing until 2007, when I set off on an 11-week tour of the USA. The Day before I boarded the plane, Madeleine Mcann disappeared and all through the holiday I followed the American news reports which had little or no information about her. I didn’t realise it at the time, but the terrible kidnap would inspire my book, The Child Taker years later. During that trip, I received news that my house had been burgled and my work van and equipment were stolen. That summer was the year when York and Tewksbury were flooded by a deluge and insurance companies were swamped with claims. They informed me that they couldn’t do anything for weeks and that returning home would be a wasted journey. Rendered unemployed on a beach in Clearwater, Florida, I decided to begin my first book, Soft Target. I have never stopped writing since. I have recently completed my 17th novel, SHADOWS, something that never would have happened but for that burglary and my experiences in Warrington.

As far as my favourite series ever, it has to be James Herbert’s, The Rats trilogy. The first book did for me what school books couldn’t. It fascinated me, triggered my imagination and gave me the hunger to want to read more. I waited years for the second book, The Lair, and Domain, the third book to come out and they were amazing.

My review
I found that this started off slow and while I was hoping for fast paced this book had the slow burn thst can come with a good story.

While I found the story intimriguing I just couldn’t like the main good guy.  I wanted more bad stuff to happen to him.  He just got on my nerves but that is the sign of a good story as well to male you feel about the characters
