My Review of Waiting For Doggo by Mark B Mills


I am so sorry I waited quite a while to read this book! It is so good! Waiting For Doggo is released on 20/11/2014

Thanks to Georgina Moore at Headline for sending me a copy of this in exchange for my honest review.

What They Say:
No-one ever called Dan a pushover. But then no-one ever called him fast-track either. He likes driving slowly, playing Sudoku on his iPhone, swapping one scruffy jumper for another. He's been with Clara for four years and he's been perfectly happy; but now she's left him, leaving nothing but a long letter filled with incriminations and a small, white, almost hairless dog, named Doggo. So now Dan is single, a man without any kind of partner whether working or in love. He's just one reluctant dog owner. Find a new home for him, that's the plan. Come on...everyone knows the old adage about the best laid plans and besides, Doggo is one special kind of a four legged friend...and an inspiration.
What I Say: 
I had no idea what to expect when I started reading this book. No, that's a lie. I expected a kind of mediocre blah blah story about a man and a dog and they saved each other etc etc...
I had heard a lot of hype about Doggo on Twitter and had high hopes that this book would be different. IT SO WAS!!
Waiting For Doggo is a story about an ugly little dog with a heart as big as a giant. He's quirky, wise and funny. He has his own little way of loving people and it's so heart warming and endearing. I love how he kind of worships Jennifer Aniston! That was so cute!
Dan is a great character and the perfect match for Doggo. He's a bit naïve, a bit of a dork but so likeable. He's not sure what to make of his new situation and Doggo helps him to learn and adjust to it. They are a great pair to read about. Edie is adorable too. I really, really liked her!
This isn't your usual fluffy human and animal story at all! Doggo is a huge personality and I'm so glad I read this book! It's just a great, lovely, warm but funny story! 8/10

Blog Tour Stop with Review - The Silent Children by Carol Wyer

Amazon Links


What They Say:
The boy studied the bruise turning yellow at the base of his neck. With quick fingers his mother tightened his tie, and pulled his collar high above it. Her eyes alone said, We will not speak of this...

Years later, a man is found shot dead in a local park. On his phone is a draft text: I can’t keep this secret any longer. The recipient is unnamed.

Detective Robyn Carter knows this secret is the key to the case, but his friends and family don’t offer any clues, and all her team have to go on is a size-ten footprint. 

Then a nurse is found in a pool of blood at the bottom of her staircase, and a seemingly insignificant detail in her friend’s statement makes Robyn wonder: are the two bodies connected, and has the killer only just begun?

When another body confirms Robyn’s worst fears, she realises she’s in a race against time to stop the killer before they strike again. But just as she thinks she’s closing in, …

Blog Tour Stop with Review - The Missing Girls by Carol Wyer

Welcome to my stop on the Blog blitz for the fabulous third Instalment in the DI Robyn Carter series!

What They Say:

One girl found dead. Another girl gone... Long shadows danced on the tin walls. Inside the trunk lay Carrie Miller, wrapped in plastic, arms folded across her ribcage, lips sealed tight forever... When a girl’s body is found at a Midlands storage unit, it is too decomposed for Detective Robyn Carter to read the signs left by the killer. No one knows the woman in blue who rented the unit; her hire van can’t be traced. But as the leads run dry another body is uncovered. This time the killer’s distinctive mark is plain to see, and matching scratches on the first victim’s skeleton make Robyn suspect she’s searching for a serial-killer.  As Robyn closes in on the killer’s shocking hunting ground, another girl goes missing, and this time it’s someone close to her own heart.  Robyn can’t lose another loved one. Can she find the sickest individual she has ever faced, before it’…
