For the Immortal Review

For the Immortal by Emily Hauser If you’ve read my review of the previous book in this trilogy, For the Winner, you’ll know that I LOVE Emily Hauser’s writing of Greek myths from a female perspective.

The Woman in Blue Review

The Woman in Blue by Elly Griffiths I’d like to start by directing your attention to the title. Not because I have anything deep to say about it, but it rhymes which made me grin.

Instead of being so based in London as the previousContinue reading “A Dangerous Collaboration Review”
