A Tale of Two Bodies

About the book: The second book in the Waterfell Tweed Cozy Mystery series!

Every bad guy believes they are the good guy.

When a squatter from Waterfell Manor is killed in a hit and run, bookshop owner Sandy Shaw is determined to leave the police to deal with the case.

But when a second attack happens, and the police seem focused on the wrong person, Sandy realises she must take matters into her own hands.

Can she solve the case before anyone else gets hurt?

A Tale of Two Bodies is a novella of around 35,000 words. Light and cozy, the book follows our female amateur sleuth, the village of Waterfell Tweed, and a whole host of quirky characters! Each book in this series can be read as a standalone (but is better enjoyed if read in order), and is free from swearing, sex, violence and cliffhangers. Book One is titled Once Upon a Crime

My review: This book was really fun! I love the whole mystery vibe. I love Sandy's bookshop/bakery. I really need a place like that close to me, except I…

Blog Tour - The Forgotten Girl

About the book: It is 1906, and sixteen-year-old Stella’s life in Durliosy, Poland, is bleak. Her only hope of surviving is to travel to America, a land of freedom and opportunity, and reunite with her brother in Baltimore. There she’ll find new challenges, and perhaps, if she can put her painful past behind her, a new chance for love and lasting happiness.

My review: This book was so great! I enjoyed the plot, the characters, the settings. And what made it even better for me was when I got to the end of the book and realized that it's actually a fictionalized account of the author's ancestors. I LOVE that kind of thing!

The whole book is from the perspective of Stella. Things were not ideal for her as she was living in Poland. I loved the love you could tell Stella had for her sweet niece. But even that was not enough to keep her in Poland in her circumstances. I loved that Stella was willing to step into the unknown and move to America, against her brother's wishes.
