About Me

My love affair with books, like most, started at an early age and is never ending. My book reading preferences have changed over the years and I look forward to sharing my varied reading tastes with you. You will find a lot of Crime Fiction (a penchant for Scottish Crime writers features a lot.) and also I love reading non fiction History. Hopefully you will find some new authors and new favourites to continue your own reading journey. ENJOY!

I was very excited to receive a pre release copy of "In the Clearing" by J P Pomare . After being blown away by his debut novel "Call Me Evie", I was hopeful of another brilliant story from this Australian author. I was not disappointed at all.

This work of fiction is obviously inspired by "The Family" a well documented and notorious cult situated in the state of Victoria. When young cult member Amy is entrusted to look after a new member things take a turn for the worse and Amy's life
of isolation from the outside world is changed forever. In the meantime, Freya a single mum with a young son she fiercely protects finds her world of security and privacy is shattered when a young child goes missing. Freya believes her secrets and her son are no longer safe.

This is a well constructed novel that just powers along and keeps you guessing. This is an excellent
psychological thriller from a brilliant author. I also highly recommend you give "Call me Evie" by J P Pomare a read as it is an exception debut novel.
