Hi! Today, instead of sharing a story or excerpt from a book, I’m taking a look at book reviews I have done in the past. The reason I’m doing this is I recently saw a book review of a friend and it reminded me of how much I enjoyed his book.
His name is Paul Stears, author of Faces Of A Small City. We met through Twitter and agreed to send each other our novels for honest reviews. At the time, we were both busy with other projects and life in general, but Paul took the time to read Deception for me and gave me a wonderful review. It was my turn to read his book and I enjoyed the escape between hospital runs with my mum. I thoroughly enjoyed his style of writing and the easy way he drew the reader into the plot. After sending through my review we discussed improvements on both our books and viewed to review each other’s books in the future. I’m looking forward to working with Paul again and hope he will have his next book out soon.
If you haven’t read Faces Of A Small City, I highly recommend it.
Here is a copy of my review on Amazon…
The setting of Canterbury lends a beautiful backdrop to this intricate tale of loyalty, love and the pursuit of happiness in a group of friends and their families. This contemporary romance follows the characters as their stories are gently woven together to create a wonderful drama that kept me in suspense till the very end. I loved Jakes, the key narrator in the story and I was left wondering if we would have the opportunity to meet him again in another romance by Paul Stears. A thoroughly enjoyable book with strong characters and well written backdrops that added to the sparkle of this Canterbury romance!
It will leave you wanting to visit Cambridge to enjoy the scenery and lifestyle yourself!
The second author I am revisiting today is L.K. Brass, author of The Apocolypse Deal.
Now this book was introduced to me through Goodreads when Mr Brass messaged me asking for an honest review. I was quite cheeky and asked him to send me a hard copy as I was curious to see if the cover looked as good in print as it did online! I was not disappointed.
The Apocolypse Deal was originally written in Italian and translated by Elizabeth Wright. The story itself has high octane action with touches of Clancy and Le Carré. There was a no-nonsense attitude to the story which I enjoyed and I was not disappointed by the end. If cyber espionage is your thing, then this might be your next best book to read!
Unfortunately I was not very fair to L.K. Brass as I did not leave a full review due to other distractions. Yes, I do get distracted easily! I shall be rectifying that and linking my review Of The Apocolypse Deal to his Goodreads account. I do hope you take the time to read this book, as I feel it deserves its place on your bookshelf, maybe next to Faces Of A Small City, just to shake things up!
Thanks for joining me on Book Tuesday.
