New On My Shelf This Week

Once again, I have to thank the lovely Melanie, representing Aria Fiction, for this week’s new addition to my virtual shelf and the great folks at NetGalley, for facilitating the Kindle download.

I am also pleased to say that for a second time, the book’s author, Sarah Flint, has agreed to stop by with a guest post on Sunday December 10th 2017, as part of a very hectic blog tour to launch this new episode in her highly successful ‘DC Charlotte Stafford’ series.

Read Sarah’s previous guest post ‘Real Life Versus Fiction

LIAR LIAR‘- (DC Charlotte Stafford #3)

If you have a passion, feed it. Sometimes the passion will wane and you won’t have time for it. Sometimes it will flourish and you won’t have enough hours in the day to harvest it. If it takes twenty years, so be it. Whatever happens though, if writing is something you love, don’t give up. If ‘it’ happens you will be the happiest person on earth. If ‘it’ doesn’t, it will still be a great legacy, if only on your own bookshelf at home.

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'.

    • Hi Laura,

      I have heard of that scenario quite often, the faithful dog found next to the body of its owner, although I have wondered why such a faithful animal, wouldn’t have gone to try and attract someone’s attention.

      Perhaps dogs are more intellegent than we give them credit for and if the owner had been injured but alive, then it would have gone for help, but knowing that the person was already dead, it simply sought to protect the body until help arrived?

      Either way, this is a harrowing premise and I can’t wait to see how the first few lines shape up for my ‘Book Beginnings On Friday’ post.

      Thanks for stopping by, I always appreciiate your comments 🙂

    • Hi Kathy,

      With over 30 years logged as a Police Officer, I should imagine that Sarah has only revealed the tip of the iceberg with the Charlotte Stafford series to date.

      She must surely have a whole wealth of material, knowledge and ideas to expand the story lines and I may actually go back and read the previous two installments in sequence, just so that I can get in at the ground level with what looks to be an intriguing series!

      Thanks for stopping by and I hope that your own mailbox was suitably replete this week 🙂

  • Animals meeting their fate in novels gets to me much more quickly than people (is that horrible to admit!?), so the beginning of the blurb causes me some alarm!

    I looked back at earlier posts and remember how good this author’s works sounds. I will keep this in mind, but as I’ve downloaded three books to my Kindle in the past week (thanks? to you), that’s as far as I’ll take it. 🙂

    • Hi Kelly,

      Of course your feelings, as an animal lover, are not horrible to admit and I can completely understand your sentiments. I am not a huge animal lover myself, although I would never knowingly or deliberately hurt an animal.

      I am getting the impression however that this wounded dog may possibly be the only incident involving an animal and so long as the injuries inflicted are not too graphically described, I will be able to see past it to the wider storyline.

      I am downloading so many books to my Kindle just lately (an email has just flashed up with another author review request for a book which sounds great!), that I can never hope to read them all, even if they are complimentary! I shall be interested to know what books I have been responsible for you adding to your TBR list 🙂

      • I just realized I fibbed and only one of the three was via your blog: The Accident by Dawn Goodwin is now sitting on my virtual Kindle shelf. 🙂

        The other two were thanks to Charlie at The Worm Hole. Who knows, once I review them, they might end up on your virtual shelf! 😉

        • You are more organised than I am for sure. I have to make lists so that I remember who I am reviewing which book for – the only trouble is, that my pile of lists is almost as tall as my TBR pile 🙂

          I am looking forward to reading which books Charlie has recommended, you will have to send me a link to his site 🙂

    • Hi Mary Ann,

      Isn’t it funny how we all focus on the injured dog rather than the murder victim?
      It’s just a shame that this witness can’t talk!!

      Thanks for stopping by and have a great week 🙂

    • Hi Elizabeth,

      I really have to thank Aria Fiction for bringing all these great new books and authors to my attention and offering me the option to feature and review them.

      I should imagine that the police will be pulling out all the stops to capture this killer, being as he or she is targeting victims from within their ranks.

      It seems to be significant that both the officers are female and red roses have been left beside their bodies, but at least the investigating officers have a common ‘modus operandi’, from where to begin their investigations.

      Thanks for taking the time to comment and I hope that all is well with you 🙂

    • Hi Martha,

      I already have the first couple of episodes in this series, sat on my virtual shelf waiting to be read, so I may just go back to the beginning of the series and read the books in sequence, just to get some backstory continuity ….. But then again I might not and I’ll just dive right in at episode #3!!

      Thanks for visiting and hosting MM 🙂

  • Hi Yvonne. All is tickety-boo here as Mr T’s younger brother would say. I trust it is likewise with you.

    As much as I’ll happily read any amount of humans being harmed (even murdered) but give me an animal and I’m in floods of tears so alas this is probably not a book for me.

    • Hi Tracy,

      All is well down here in Somerset, thanks for asking. Although I am already sick of Christmas and we are only just into November!! … That’s the trouble with being involved in retail!

      Oh Dear! I didn’t mean to stir up such angst amongst you animal lovers. I guess that I am going to have to vet any further lines from the book I had planned on sharing, just in case I cause further grief and distress!

      I’m sure there are plenty of human bodies in this story, just to take the edge off the situation 🙂

      Seriously, it wouldn’t do if we all liked the same thing, now would it? Thanks for taking the time to comment regardless and Happy Reading 🙂
