SKIN DEEP, an Adult Mystery Thriller by Liz Nugent left me in a quandary. Perhaps that was the reason: to shock and make the reader think. I, on the other hand, could not get to grips with the main character, Cordelia Russell. Within the first few pages, we learn Cordelia has the body of a dead man decomposing in her flat. But who? Over the rest of the book, we are introduced to many would-be suspects as the story begins again when Cordelia is ...

CROSS HER HEART a psychological thriller, by Sarah Pinborough, moved along at a great pace. Secrets, lies, and scandal were at every page turn. I could not put this book down. Without giving any ‘secrets’ away, the novel led me down one path only to turn everything on its head. BOOM! This book grips and doesn’t let go. It twists the reader left and right as the characters come to terms with their past. At times, this was not a...

THE HIDEAWAY by Sheila O’Flanagan proved a great read. After devasting news, the author took us on a journey from soul-destroying distress to acceptance and new beginnings. All the while the backdrop of sultry Spain with its orange groves, vineyards, and handsome men held the reader entranced. I read the book quite quickly. I wanted to know how Juno mended her broken heart. It seemed time and the beautiful Spanish scenery, along with Pep ...

Finding Gobi by Dion Leonard was a rewarding book to read. At first, it didn’t seem like a read for a grown up. After all, what could we possibly have in common? But, it turned out to be a real treat. This story was about not just finding a little dog lost in the Gobi Desert, but also a journey to finding oneself. Dion Leonard, an ultramarathon runner came across Gobi, a small stray dog in the Gobi desert. The little dog latched onto Dio...

Jan Bowles – Where I Am
My Thoughts / March 13, 2018

Hello, Everyone Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. A lot has happened during the last post I made and this one. I won’t bore you with the details, but suffice to say my muse has taken a nose dive, and only now, 3 – 4 years later am I feeling the tentative tinglings of a new book working its way into my mind, determined to be told. (Even if it takes a year or two to get it down on paper so to speak).  I&...
