*BLOG TOUR* The Santa Killer – Ross Greenwood (Content).

Blurb; The Santa Killer is coming to town…
One night less than two weeks before Christmas, a single mother is violently assaulted. It’s a brutal crime at the time of year when there should be goodwill to all. When DI Barton begins his investigation, he’s surprised to find the victim is a woman with nothing to hide and no reason for anyone to hurt her.

A few days later, the mother of the woman attacked rings the police station. Her granddaughter has drawn a shocking picture. It seems she was looking out of the window when her mother was attacked. And when her grandmother asks the young girl who the person with the weapon is, she whispers two words.

Bad Santa.

The rumours start spreading, and none of the city’s women feel safe – which one of them will be next?

He’s got a list. It’s quite precise. It won’t matter even if you’re nice.

Author Bio; Ross Greenwood is the author of crime thrillers. Before becoming a full-time writer he was mostrecently a prison officer and so worked everyday with murderers, rapists and thieves for four years.He lives in Peterborough.

*BLOG TOUR* Where Blood Runs Cold – Giles Kristian ★★★★

Blurb; Erik Amdahl and his spirited daughter, Sofia, have embarked on a long-promised cross-country ski trip deep into Norway’s arctic circle. For Erik, it’s the chance to bond properly with his remaining daughter following a tragic accident. For Sofia, it’s the proof she needs that her father does care.

Then, far from home in this snowbound wilderness, with night falling and the mercury plummeting, an accident sends them in search of help – and shelter. Nearby is the home of a couple – members of Norway’s indigenous Sami people – who they’ve met before, and who welcome them in. Erik is relieved. He believes the worst is over. He thinks that Sofia is now safe. He could not be more wrong. He and Sofia are not the old couple’s only visitors that night – and soon he and Sofia will be running for their lives . . .
…and beneath the swirling light show of the Northern Lights, a desperate fight ensues – of man against man, of man against nature – a fight for survival that plays out across the snow and ice.

A story of endurance and of the desperate, instinctive will to survive, of a father’s love for his child, of knowing when to let go – and of a daughter’s determination to prove herself worthy of that love, Where Blood Runs Cold is a pulse-racing thriller from a master storytelle

My Review; This was a brilliant read. Fast paced. Gripping. Tense. Thrilling. Dark. Deadly. A real page turner that keeps the reader hooked until the final page. A story about a father and his daughter who witnessed a murder and now they’re being chased by the murderers. An edge of your seat read. To say the story is set in the snowy, blizzard mountains with not much around there’s plenty to keep you hooked. Accidents. Shots. Blood. Chases. Hiding. Resting. Heart pounding.

A story full of determination to survive even with death comes knocking. One I won’t forget for a long time and I’ve discovered a new author to enjoy too. I did think the ending was a bit sudden but I totally got it. This wasn’t just a normal murder there’s more behind it. A lot of lives lost over what’s hidden in this town and its past. Highly recommend. A well deserved four stars from me.

Dead Head – C.J. Skuse ★★★★

Blurb; Can a serial killer ever lose their taste for murder?

Since confessing to her bloody murder spree Rhiannon Lewis, the now-notorious Sweetpea killer, has been feeling out-of-sorts.

Having fled the UK on a cruise ship to start her new life, Rhiannon should be feeling happy. But it’s hard to turn over a new leaf when she’s stuck in an oversized floating tin can with the Gammonati and screaming kids. Especially when they remind her of Ivy – the baby she gave up for a life carrying on killing.

Rhiannon is all at sea. She’s lost her taste for blood but is it really gone for good? Maybe Rhiannon is realising that there’s more to life than death…

My Review; This is book three in the sweetpea trilogy. I adored the previous two books but for me book one was the best. This was still a brilliant read but also very different from the previous two books as Rhiannon is on the run in this story. This isn’t as dark as the previous books but still a brilliant ending to the trilogy… Is she still a psycho? Did she get away with it all? So many questions.

Easy, fast paced read with short chapters. Going to miss Rhiannons character. An ending that could split readers. Highly recommend the whole trilogy. A well deserved four stars from me.
