New On My Shelf This Week

As a pre-approved NetGalley reader for Aria Fiction, both of these books caught my eye and my finger just slipped onto the ‘download’ button and clicked all by itself!

Vicky, from Aria was then kind enough to offer me spots on both Blog Tours during August, so I hope to see you there, if either one of them catches your eye too 🙂

BROKEN DOLLS‘ (DC Charlotte Stafford #4) by SARAH FLINT

Cover Image Of The Book 'Broken Dolls' By Author Sarah FlintThe all NEW heart-stopping, un-put-downable serial killer thriller from the bestselling author of Mummy’s Favourite. Perfect for the fans of Angela Marsons.

A baby lies abandoned amongst the rubbish; her tiny face as white as alabaster, her body as stiff as a miniature doll. 

A young prostitute lies beaten, her figure lying like a mannequin on the frozen concrete, her blood spilt, her life ebbing away.

As DC ‘Charlie’ Stafford and her boss DI Hunter struggle to identify the victim from the violator their hunt brings them to the crack houses of Lambeth, littered with damaged people, their lives scarred by tragedy and violence, most broken beyond repair. 

As further lives hang in the balance Charlie must enpower the weak to speak out against those who seek to cause harm.

But can a broken doll ever truly be mended; or will the wounds of the past, fashion the events of the future?


Cover Image Of The Book 'The Pupil' By Author Dawn GoodwinOne moment of carelessness. Four shattered lives.

Psychological suspense that explores a labyrinth of lies, manipulation and revenge. Perfect for fans of Louise Jenson and Katerina Diamond.

Literary agent Viola Matthews is sure she’s met Katherine Baxter before. So when her husband and bestselling novelist Samuel Morton introduces Viola to the quiet, unassuming woman he has offered to mentor, she knows their paths have crossed before. The question is where?

As their worlds collide and the bond between Samuel and Katherine deepens, Viola realises she must take control. 

If Viola is right, then Katherine needs to pay for something that happened twelve years ago.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.

    • A psychological thriller and a police procedural, both from authors who already have an established fan base – what more could one wish for in a Monday morning mailbox 🙂

      Have a great week and Happy Reading 🙂

  • I’ll admit, I didn’t look too closely at the first since it’s #4 in an established series. The second book sounds quite interesting and I already have another of her books waiting in my Kindle (thanks to your feature).

    Looking forward to both blog tour posts next month!

    • I am also looking forward to the Blog Tours for these books and I am wondering if I shall be lucky enough to bag a guest post for either?

      Both Sarah and Dawn made big career changes to take up full time writing and whilst for Dawn, the change was quite drastic, Sarah, a former Metropolitan Police Officer, decided to write about what she knew and was familiar with.

      From the many rave reviews, I truly think that the ‘Charlotte Stafford’ books work well as stand alone stories, but I respect that you prefer to get into a series from the ground level, so this one might not appeal to you so much.

      I hope that after further posts and articles, you might decide to add at least one of these books to your Kindle 🙂

    • Two excellent sounding thrillers and some equally stunning cover art, not sure which I like the best, but I think that ‘Broken Dolls’ is more poignant and relevant to the premise?

      Thanks for taking the time to stop by and Happy Reading 🙂

    • Aria Fiction cetainly have some amazing authors on their books and I am lucky enough to get first dibs with the downloads and Blog Tour options.

      I just need lots more hours in the day to find the time to read all these lovely stories!

      Thanks for visiting today and I hope that all is well with you 🙂

    • Sarah Flint has had a career spanning more than 30 years, with the Metropolitan Police Force in London, so it is pretty safe to say, that she definitely has plenty of experience which will transfer nicely into some intriguing and nail-biting storylines.

      Dawn on the other hand, comes from an entirely different background and to date, her books are individual stand alone novels.

      Two unique approaches, the same fantastic result!

      Thanks for stopping by and for continuing to co-host MM 🙂

    • You Too!

      I hope that you have some great new books to read and share, and thanks for continuing to co-host MM 🙂
