*BLOG TOUR* Three Rivers – David Blake ★★★★

Blurb; A body caught on the end of a mast, another skewered by a rhond hook, and a chain of evidence Tanner cannot accept.

As a twisting gale howls its way over Barton Broad, DS Jenny Evans joins a handsome old friend to help rescue the crew of an overturned boat. But when they discover a body, snagged on the end of the mast, one murder soon follows another, leaving DI John Tanner with a race against time, desperate to prove that the most obvious suspect isn’t who everyone seems to think it is.

Set within the mysterious beauty of the Norfolk Broads, this fast-paced British detective series is a dark cozy murder mystery with a slice of humour and a touch of romance, one that will have you guessing until the very end, when the last shocking twist is finally revealed.

My Review; This is book four in the DI Tanner series, best read in order. I have been with this series from the start and it has just got better and better. I’m thrilled to know there is more to come too. Again brilliantly written, short chapters and fast paced. I devoured it. I enjoyed it. I loved it.

It was brilliant to be back with the team, especially Tanner and Jenny. This has to be their hardest case yet and one of their own is being framed for it all. It even had me doubting if they would actually do it! Torn between ehat they should do and who’s the suspect the case turns deadly and the stakes are high. Time is running out. I was screaming inside at this book! But alas… The ending was perfection just what I needed. A shocker of an outcome. A gripping, mysterious and clever case.

I would highly recommend this whole series. A well deserved four stars from me. I cannot wait for book five already. Exciting. I was lost into their world while reading this, didn’t want to put it down. Page turner of a read.

*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* St Benets – David Blake ★★★★★

Blurb; A girl thrown from a church tower, a man sacrificed to Satan, and a priest murdered at the hands of the Devil.

When the body of an old man is found lying in the ruins of St Benet’s Abbey, his throat cut, a knife resting in his open hand, DI John Tanner and DC Jenny Evans are given no choice but to accept a ruling of death by misadventure.

But when the body goes missing from its tomb, after a priest is found nailed to a cross, and another impaled on a stake, everything begins to point back to the murder of a teenage girl, thrown from the top of a church tower, some forty-three years before.

My Review; This is a series that is just getting better and better. I mean that. Starting this one brought the first book flooding back to me especially with the explosive ending… St Benets is book two in the DI Tanner series and I recommend reading them in order not because of small spoilers if any in this book but because you will get a feel for the characters and the team.

In St Benets (book two) I found there was a lot more going on in this story compared to the first. We have several different cases in this story aswell as the personal side to John and Jennys lives… But do all the cases here link together or not? A real page turner. Brilliant. Easy to devour. I didn’t want to put it down, I wanted answers and was backing John aka DI Tanner the whole time. I love how he lives on a little boat, different. Well written, fast paced and had me trying to guess the outcome the whole time.

I have high hopes for this series and want more and hope there is more to come. A well deserved five stars. Highly recommend. Throughally enjoyed it.
