On Laughton Moor

On Laughton Moor

Lisa Hartley

This is a first book in a series by a first-time novelist and is a good introduction to the characters. It is a police procedural set in Lincolnshire with a DI new to the area. I like the characterisation and the interaction between the members of the team, but the plotting is a little shaky.


The Mysterious Bakery on Rue de Paris

The Mysterious Bakery on Rue de Paris

Evie Gaughan

This is a charming, gentle read with a few twists to keep you on your toes. The various relationships (romance, friendships, working) are written well. The descriptions are vivid and the history is fascinating. Francophiles will enjoy it especially.


Poison Bay

Poison Bay

By Belinda Pollard

This is a gripping story with plenty of mystery and twists. It is a story about greed and revenge and how they can destroy lives. It is about friendship and teamwork and parents’ love for their children. It is a story about survival of the elements, mistrust and faith. The writing is wonderful - it is a great read. Recommended.
