Dead Hope by Nicky Wells – A Review.

nicky-wellsThe book business loves handcuffs – and not just in shades of grey. There are colonies of different genres with all kinds and creeds and orthodoxies. I can understand this. I’d be pretty surprised if I opened a can of Walmart Tuna to find it stuffed with caviar. But for sure – I’d survive somehow as long as I had some fizzio therapy vino in the house to help me swallow my consternation. I’ve always spilled outside the genre corset, mainly because of sex. I’ve just got to put some in – well rather a lot actually.

I came across Nicky Wells a few years ago now. She’s a trouper and just the kind of girl who’d give you caviar rather than tuna. At the time she was singing a rock song from one of her books to a live audience. She’s just got a new book out and here’s my review.

Well, I sat down to read a few pages and ended up putting it down finished at 2 o’clock this morning. I’ve never been sure what genre of book I go for and this story suited me because it’s an action suspense romance thriller. What hooked me in was that right from the start I cared about the characters. The tension is well maintained and there’s a bit in a ventilation shaft that had my palms sweating. There’s a strong love story and of course a mystery to solve with an evil villain and an East End market barrow load of red herrings. The writing style is easy to read as the story romps along. I won’t add any plot spoilers but there’s a sexy girl and a well hunky hero. It’s also a modern tale with clearly some research done into computer hacking and the world of data storage. It’s a glass of wine story – once you’ve started, you’ve got to finish it.

Ditch the genre corset and spread out with a good story.

Children’s #book #reviews by blogger @ChelleyToy & her son "I loved how they all started Once Upon A Time and ended They All Lived Happily Ever After…..Ahhhhh :-)"

Today my ‘ONCE UPON A NOW’ tour visits the  ‘Tales of Yesterday‘ book blog – run by Michelle Toy and ably aided in this case by her son Corey.

I was amazed to click the link to Michelle’s blog and see the whole of the page decked out in ‘Once Upon a NOW’ bright egg-yolk yellow and the logos for my series plastered all over the screen. There was even a banner blending the blog’s logo with my book livery. I am totally bowled over.  Thank you so much Michelle!

I was further delighted to find that Michelle and her son had read not one, but all three of the books from the series – and enjoyed them too. Phew.

Find out which book was Corey’s favourite – read their reviews on Tales of Yesterday .

One of the books in the series is still going FREE on Amazon for another day: http://www.smarturl.it/Kruncha  – ends 28th Jan.

The next stop on the tour is http://chapterfive.wix.com/chapter5  on Wednesday 29th January.  Can’t wait!
