Looking for a mystery series with a lighter touch?

Contemporary and classic, the Dave Slater Mystery Novels are a great British blend of character, suspense, and humor, making them the ideal for those readers who prefer a good story over blood and gore. If this was a TV series, it would be the perfect Sunday evening drama.

The books in this UK based series have accumulated hundreds of reviews, with almost 90% of reviewers giving 4 and 5 stars. This collection includes the first four books in the series (and you get them for the price of two!):

Book 1: Death Of A Temptress

Ruth Thornhill went missing six months ago. According to the evidence, she ran off with another man, so the Met closed the case. However, Slater’s inquiries soon find inconsistencies in the original investigation, and after a near-fatal encounter with a London bus, he realizes the stakes are far higher than he imagined.
An unlikely ally, in the form of fellow scapegoat DS Norman Norman, helps him uncover disturbing connections between the missing woman, a Chinese businessman, a glossy magazine, an online escort agency, a top London banker and senior officers from London’s Serious Crime Unit. The two uncover a mire of corruption, blackmail, deception and possibly the most cunning murder ever seen. The evidence stacks up against one particular suspect and Slater and Norman close in, but as with most things in Slater’s life, nothing is ever simple.

Book 2: Just A Coincidence

In the sleepy Hampshire town of Tinton, major crime is rare, and DS Slater and colleague Norman Norman find themselves with nothing to investigate except a flasher and an illiterate counterfeiter. Things are so quiet Slater even arranges to go on his long-awaited date with bombshell waitress Jelena.
But things can change in a matter of seconds, and a dog walker’s discovery of a battered body near a local woodland sends Slater and Norman hurrying to the scene. Before they know it, they have three dead bodies on their hands, and the victims are all related. But with 15 years between the murders, is this just a bizarre coincidence, or could the murders be linked? With tensions rising within their close-knit team, can Slater and Norman keep it together to solve their latest mystery?

Book 3: Florence

When a little old man is found dead in his home, DS Dave Slater assumes he was simply the victim of a tragic accident. He lived alone, after all, and didn’t seem to have any living relatives. But after some strange occurrences at the old man’s home, Slater finds himself probing deeper. He soon discovers that someone seems to be looking for something, but what was the lonely old man hiding, and why is someone so desperate to find it?
And then there’s Florence, a ghost-like figure who is occasionally spotted around town in the early hours of the morning. Slater can’t shake off the feeling she is linked, somehow. But how, and why?

Book 4: The Wrong Man

When Diana Woods is found stabbed to death in her kitchen, DS Slater and DS Norman Norman are plunged into another major investigation. The finger of suspicion quickly points at Diana’s estranged husband, Ian, a bully who regularly abused his wife. But as Slater learns more, he begins to wonder if everything is as it seems. When a new suspect appears on the scene, it seems that Slater’s instincts were right. But the evidence seems just a bit too convenient, and Slater and Norman have to face the possibility that their suspect is being framed, and they could be back to square one.

Sarah Collins, a vicar’s daughter from Somerset, has a modest goal for her first Season in London—find a husband who can provide for her and her family. With nothing to offer but her beauty and a pleasant temperament, she hopes her assets will be enough to secure her a kind and steady man. She’s certainly not looking for a fortune or title, and indeed, hopes she may live quietly in the country and never come to London again.

Oliver Lyre is the newly inherited Duke of Lincoln. Born as the ‘spare’ son, he never expected to inherit his father’s noble mantle, and has neither the social skills nor the desire to enjoy the benefits of his rank. He knows he must marry a lady befitting his new position, but when he rescues the beautiful Sarah Collins one night, he can’t envision a future without her sweet smile.

What’s a duke to do—marry a delectable virgin who will undoubtedly make a horrid Duchess, or do what family duty demands of him … unless he can somehow find a way to have both?

Robert Blakely is a widowed gentleman, come to spend Christmas with his long-time friend William Sommers. Convinced that he will never wish to marry again, Robert is shocked to find himself keenly interested in his friend’s lovely daughter. Can it be that a girl half his age is his perfect match?

#BookBirthday “Tilting: A Memoir” by Nicole Harkin

~~~

~~~

cover

We only learned about our father’s girlfriend after he became deathly ill and lay in a coma 120 miles from our home.

Overhearing the nurse tell Linda–since I was nine I had called my mom by her first name–about the girlfriend who came in almost every day to visit him when we weren’t there confirmed that the last moment of normal had passed us by without our realizing it. Up to then, our family had unhappily coexisted with Dad flying jumbo jets to Asia while we lived in Montana. We finally came together to see Dad through his illness, but he was once again absent from a major family event–unable to join us from his comatose state. This is the moment when our normal existence tilted.

Dad recovered, but the marriage failed, as did Linda, with cancer. Our family began to move down an entirely different path with silver linings we wouldn’t see for many years.

In this candid and compassionate memoir which recently won a Gold Award in The Wishing Shelf Book Award, Nicole Harkin describes with an Impressionist’s fine eye the evolution of a family that is quirky, independent, uniquely supportive, peculiarly loving and, most of all, marvelously human.

#BlogTour “The Flowerpot Witch (Wendy Woo Witch Lit Novel Book 3)” by Wendy Steele

banner

~~~

C H A R A C T E R    S P O T L I G H T

Meet Lizzie Martin from the Wendy Woo Witch Lit Series!

Hi, I’m Lizzie and I’m a witch. Not that I wear a pointy hat and travel to work on a broomstick. In fact, unless you get to know me well, you would never know but I live my life following the Sacred Wheel of the Year and use magic in my daily life. I might draw a single card from my Tarot pack, set a candle spell working or consult with Cerridwen and her cauldron but even if my focus is not on a magical act or ritual, the Wheel turns and I move with it.

Rowan, my fifteen-year-old daughter, and I still live in our old house, despite Marsha, my mother-in-law’s generous inheritance, and I’ve spent the past months since Christmas trying to follow a path I believe will be my new career. I’ve coped with burglaries instigated by Edward Brown my old boss, interference from my ex-husband Josh, who’s decided after ten years that he does want a relationship with his daughter while embarking on a new relationship with George, a former soldier who lives in a cottage in a wood near me.

And I’ve discovered my parents weren’t my parents. Well, Dad was Dad but the woman I’d tried to make love me was actually my aunt who despised me. She didn’t like Dad much either but both of them were manipulated by Edward Brown. That was a shock I can tell you! The connection was there but it took my Dad’s sister, my Aunt Matilda to tell me the whole story.

Louise and I grow closer every day. She’s a great friend, raven-haired and vivacious, completely different from me but they say opposites attract. She’s kind, that’s why I like her and Ingrid has become a friend too, Jess, Rowan’s friend’s Mum, a woman with the energy and enthusiasm of a lit Catherine Wheel!

The chickens have been naughty, but that’s chickens for you and if Robbie and Stardust hadn’t snuggled up in their love nest in the alley, Cariad, the black kitten, wouldn’t now be a permanent fixture on my shoulder and a big part of our lives.

I’ve been back to Wales to see my half brother and sister, Jack and Finola, discovering where our real mother lives and while in Cornwall, George and I began to communicate, learning about each other and the past that has influenced our lives so much.

There’s been magic, of course, a particular seven card Tarot spread shining light and understanding on family and relationship issues, but the most magical day these past few months was the day I saw my real mother for the very first time.

~~~

coverLizzie Martin has chosen pottery to be her new career…

But the teacher from hell threatens to thwart her ambitions before she starts.

She has support from her best friend Louise and Evan, another pottery tutor, but Rowan, her fifteen-year-old daughter is restless, Josh, her ex-husband is colluding with her aunt and though her mother is alive, access to her is forbidden. When The Morrigan appears in her sacred circle, Lizzie knows she has a battle on her hands.

There is hope though.

Stardust the chicken brings a new creature into Lizzie’s life and a long-awaited meeting with her Aunt Matilda brings Lizzie’s past into perspective.

Lizzie’s magic ventures beyond The Sanctuary, into the Welsh landscape and the realms of the fae.

“Shadow” by Aris Austin

Shadow

by Aris Austin

Genre: Animals & Pets/Dogs

99¢ at time of posting! KINDLE COUNTDOWN! (thru 6/22)

Meet Shadow. He’s a little older and slower than he used to be, but he has a heart of gold, and he’s a good dog. People always tell him so. He’ll never hesitate to give your face a good licking, and there’s no one he loves more than his human, Brian.

Brian got a new puppy for Christmas though, leading him to abandon Shadow at the shelter he came from eleven years earlier. Shadow is devastated. Worse, the clock is winding down, even as a caring shelter worker helps him heal from the betrayal. Each day brings him closer to being euthanized in order to make more room at the shelter, and his fate rests in the hands of the very species that betrayed him—humans.

Shadow’s story is the story of countless real-life dogs that end up in shelters every year. In an effort to help save them, 20% of royalties will go to Love & Second Chances all-breed dog rescue.
