‘Not My Kinda Book’ Score: 2/5 No, I did not enjoy this book. It’s one of those rare occasions that I was really keen to finish the book so I could move on to a book I’d enjoy more. If I’m reading a book I enjoy, I never want it to end. It’s not the worst book I’ve ever read (thankfully books that get 1/5 are a rarity) but it certainly wasn’t fun. Imagine someo…

‘Ghosts With Local Colour’ Score: 3/5 Well, this is an odd one for someone who doesn’t believe in ghosts. I first heard about this book last year when a friend in $WORK mentioned it.

Something about the plotting, pace and characterisation lifts this to a higher level. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this, and I’m looking forward to more in the series.

‘Murder, Fraud In Ohio’ Score: 5/5 (Disclosure: this was a proof copy given to me by the fine folks at No Alibis, for no good reason as far as I can tell other than they’re great people who like other people reading books. It’s not like they know me or know I write stuff here.) Female private investigator in Ohio gets confusing case. What’s not to love? What really made it enjoyable for me was t…
