Genre: Historical/time-slip romance
Release Date: 2/7/15 (e-pub) 10/9/15 (print)
Publisher: Harper Impulse

Tired of her life in London, freelance illustrator Rachel buys the beautiful but dilapidated Clematis Cottage and sets about creating the home of her dreams. But tucked away behind the water tank in the attic and left to gather dust for decades, is an old biscuit tin containing letters, postcards and a diary. So much more than old scraps of paper, these are precious memories that tell the story of Henrietta Trenchard-Lewis, a love lost in the Great War and the girl who was left behind.

ABOUT GEORGIA

 

2014-10-14 12.22.20

I used to live in London, where I worked in the theatre. Then I got the bizarre job of teaching road safety to the U.S. navy – in Marble Arch!

A few years ago, I did an ‘Escape to the Country’. I now live in a tiny Herefordshire village, where I scandalise the neighbours by not keeping ‘country hours’ and being unable to make a decent pot of plum jam. Home is a converted Oast house (Old agricultural building used for drying hops), which I share with my two beloved spaniels, husband (also beloved) and a ghost called Zoe.

I’ve been lucky enough to travel widely, though prefer to set my novels closer to home. Perhaps more research is needed? I’ve always wanted to base a book in the Caribbean!

I am addicted to Belgian chocolate, Jane Austen and, most of all, Strictly Come Dancing.

A decent, ordinary man, a man who has already suffered the loss of one child, Daniel Conner is forced by extraordinary circumstances into being a hero. Tortured, forcibly drugged—heroin still pulsating nauseatingly through his veins—his wife and daughter degraded, Daniel knows their kidnapper is beyond reasoning with. But does being pushed one step beyond endurance justify doing the unthinkable?

High on drugs, indebted to his supplier, and desperate, Charlie Roberts takes Daniel’s wife and daughter hostage. Daniel does everything within his power to rescue the situation bloodlessly. Eventually though, Daniel realises that with or without violent mood swings induced by amphetamines and cocaine, Charlie Roberts is a psychopath. He wants more than Daniel’s money.

ABOUT BEN ADAMS

edited (1)

Like a lot of people, Ben went to school, then college and eventually grew up and got a responsible job, a house and a family. And then his mid-life crisis kicked in.

Realising that life was in danger of becoming all too serious, Ben started writing. Not in the way that Forrest Gump started running, but at least he started. He wrote on steamed up mirrors in the bathroom to make his children smile. Eventually he graduated to making up stories to entertain his kids at bedtime.

For some reason, his boys didn’t seem interested in his tales of every-day life, relationships, family, trauma, farce and the occasional bit of debauchery. They preferred JK someone or other.

Following his short-lived career as a children’s author, Ben now concentrates on writing stories for grown-ups. He writes for people who have lived, loved, worked, strived and suffered – people like him. People like you.

Ben lives in southwest London with his two boys and Albus, his dog.

MY REVIEW

Told in the same style as Charlotte Bronte, this second book in the Eyre Hall Trilogy moves us on from Edward Rochester’s death and Jane’s forced marriage to Richard Mason.  Written from multi first person points of view, it’s a great opportunity to get inside the characters’ heads and see the story unravel from different perspectives.

As I had not read the first book in the series I found the character sketches at the beginning of the book really helpful.  The plot requires a large number of characters to interact with each other at the same time.  Therefore knowing exactly who was who made the whole read much easier.

As the story begins, Jane Eyre is recovering from a long term illness brought about by a miscarriage. She has also been affected by her valet Michael Kirkpatrick’s departure to join the Royal Navy. Previously they had been lovers but when he heard of her decision to marry Richard Mason he left.  Jane keeps to her room, where Nell the daughter of Eyre Hall’s dressmaker reads to her. However for most of the time Jane only half listens and prefers to gaze out of the window, her thoughts elsewhere.

Michael, now a Lieutenant, unexpectedly  returns declaring he is still in love with Jane and bringing her out of her melancholy.  Miscarrying Michael’s baby has brought back thoughts that she may have been lied to about the death of the daughter she gave birth to when she was married to Rochester.  Now to prove his love for her, Michael promises to investigate the possibility that her daughter still be alive somewhere in London.  Days later, returning from capital with interesting news he discovers Richard Mason has been found dead in bed.

There’s plenty to keep the reader turning pages – the discovery of the secret Edward Rochester took with him to the grave and the real cause of Richard Mason’s death to name but two.  The book’s finale deals with a kidnap in the Caribbean and a rescue mission.  As the story eventually reaches a conclusion there are still loose ends and unanswered questions; something which made me look forward to reading book 3!

I would like to thank Brook Cottage Books for a complimentary copy of Twelfth Night at Eyre Hall in exchange for an honest review.

BROOK COTTAGE BOOKS PRESENTS: DEATH SENTENCE BY SHERYL BROWNE 11 – 22 JANUARY 2016

 

 

Death Sentence darker Cover

Thriller/Psychological thriller/Crime thriller

Release Date: 1st June 2015

Reviewed by a top Amazon Reviewer at Best Selling Thrillers and given a glowing FIVE Stars, Sheryl Browne’s new thriller Death Sentence is now available on Amazon! “This was such an excellent read. I found myself having to force myself to breathe. Well done Sheryl! Once again you’ve produced a book with such an array of plots and yet showing that love is still possible throughout tragedy and conflict”. – Treebeard

*The title of the book, DEATH SENTENCE, was suggested by a chief constable who also offered the author guidance on forensics and police procedure.

Death Sentence – He’s killed your child and kidnapped your wife. What would YOU do?

Detective Inspector Matthew Adams and Patrick Sullivan, drug dealer, pimp, murderer: two men on opposite sides of the law. A history that goes way back. A bully even in his youth, Sullivan had made it his mission in life to make the goody-two-shoes copper’s life a misery. Now Matthew has made it his mission in life to make sure the pimping scum responsible for prostituting young girls, abusing them, and beating them to death, is locked up for life.

When Matthew’s child becomes a casualty of the war between them, does Matthew want justice? Or does he want retribution? When Patrick’s brother is shot down like a dog in a drug bust gone wrong, Patrick wants payback. He wants Matthew. Or the copper loses his pretty, pregnant wife. As far as Patrick is concerned, it’s quid pro quo.

An edge-of-your seat story of revenge.

MY REVIEW

Local club owner Patrick Sullivan and police inspector Matthew Adams go back a long way.  As children at school Patrick bullied Matthew and the animosity they have for each other is still as strong now they are adults.

Patrick is all all round nasty piece of work. He’s inherited his father’s club,  he’s involved in drugs and prostitution and doesn’t shrink from killing those who annoy him or get in his way.  Matthew’s long term goal has been to use the full force of the law to put him where he belongs – behind bars.  Patrick, however, is very slippery and has so far evaded any form of prosecution.  Patrick’s hatred for Matthew pushes him to exact punishment every time he feels he has interfered in his life.  The last example of this was when a hit and run driver claimed the life of Matthew’s daughter Lily.  As a result his wife lost the baby she was carrying.  Matthew, who has always done everything by the book is driven to  take drastic action to prove Patrick’s guilt.

Matthew’s wife Becky is a strong character who has survived the loss of Lily and her unborn baby.  Matthew is now her focus and she constantly worries about him, in particular his asthma which has returned since the hit and run.  As the story begins they are about to foster Matthew’s sister Kirsten’s daughter, abandoned in a childrens’  home by her alcoholic mother.  Ashley is a great character who through her life experiences is both resourceful and streetwise; something that comes in very handy when we get to the edge of your seat moments during the abduction.

Patrick’s character is brilliantly written. The physical and psychological abuse he received  as a child from his violent father has been instrumental in turning him into the monster he is today.  During the abduction, Sheryl gives you breathless moments as you wonder what he’s about to do next.

And Matthew, the all round good guy, coping  not only with his own personal problems, but still feeling responsible for his sister’s situation: booze and drug dependent and living on the streets. He knows Patrick Sullivan is guilty and needs to be put away, but no one seems to be listening.  And when he’s pushed beyond breaking point it all goes horribly wrong…

A nail biting read…
