Reviews

I love reading and discovering new authors and series. It should come as no surprise that crime is my favourite read, particularly when there are so many inspiring authors, like Sue Grafton, Peter James, Rachel Amphlett, Robin Roughley, and LJ Ross, to name a few. Take a look at the reviews and see if any books take your fancy.
