*BLOG TOUR* Moorings – David Blake ★★★★

Blurb; THE DEBUT CRIME THRILLER SERIES OF THE YEAR!

A war veteran murdered in his home, a property developer with links to organised crime, and an old family secret that seems unwilling to stay dead.

When Harry Falcon, a wealthy boatyard owner and highly decorated World War Two veteran, is found drowned in his bath, DI John Tanner and DC Jenny Evans start by questioning his two sons, each with a motive for wanting him dead.

But when the elder son is found with his head smashed in under a toppled yacht, and that the younger son has been talking to a local property developer, one who’d spent months trying to buy the yard from his father, the investigation soon leads them towards a dark and dangerous secret, one which nobody can quite believe.

My Review; This is book three in the brilliant DI Tanner series, best read in order. From the prologue alone I was hooked! What a gripping opening. I am absolutely loving this series. I have witnessed this series get bigger, better and more brilliant with each book!

I love Tanners and Evans personal and professional relationship, they’re just the dream team together! Nothing can defeat them even death it seems. Brilliantly written, fast paced and thrilling. A real page turner I didn’t want to put down and easily devoured it. Not the outcome I expected at all! So that had me gasping and shocked. Loved it. Enjoyed it. Not a bad word to say about it.

A well deserved four stars from me. Highly recommend this series. I can’t wait to see what lies ahead for us in book four. Oooh!

*BLOG TOUR* Blood Song – Johana Gustawsson ★★★★

Blurb; The action swings from London to Sweden, and then back into the past, to Franco’s Spain, as Roy & Castells hunt a monstrous killer … in the lastest instalment of Johana Gustawsson’s award-winning series

Spain, 1938: The country is wracked by civil war, and as Valencia falls to Franco’s brutal dictatorship, Republican Therese witnesses the murders of her family. Captured and sent to the notorious Las Ventas women’s prison, Therese gives birth to a daughter who is forcibly taken from her.

Falkenberg, Sweden, 2016: A wealthy family is found savagely murdered in their luxurious home. Discovering that her parents have been slaughtered, Aliénor Lindbergh, a new recruit to the UK’s Scotland Yard, rushes back to Sweden and finds her hometown rocked by the massacre.

Profiler Emily Roy joins forces with Aliénor and soon finds herself on the trail of a monstrous and prolific killer. Little does she realise that this killer is about to change the life of her colleague, true-crime writer Alexis Castells. Joining forces once again, Roy and Castells’ investigation takes them from the Swedish fertility clinics of the present day back to the terror of Franco’s rule, and the horrifying events that took place in Spanish orphanages under its rule.

My Review; Blood Song is book three in the Emily Roy and Alexis Castells series and yet again I’ve come into a series LATE! Ahhh. Nevertheless, it read perfectly fine as a standalone and now I need and want to go back to the previous books, yes I already have them.

Beautifully translated by David Warriner. What a brilliant story! The story flicks from between Spain 1938 to Sweden 2016 but each part is clearly stated at the beginning of each chapter. I found the Spain 1938 parts absolutely heartbreaking, upsetting and dark. They really got to me. The 2016 parts are an indepth investigation into in the deaths of a family… But what links these different times and stories together? You’ll have to read to find out!

Thrilling, clever, bold, brave, emotional and edge of your seat reading. There’s not enough words to describe this story. Johana has a unique writing skill in how she has told this story and I loved it. One that will be hard to forget. Some of these characters are going to haunt me forever.

A well deserved four stars from me. Highly recommend and I can’t wait to go back and see what the rest of this series has in store for me.
