My Review of Leaves For Chloe by Pat Elliott

I am so sorry it took me so long to review Leaves For Chloe (The Leaves Series Book 2) by Pat Elliott (@feetpaintwords) and even more sorry it took me so long to actually read it!

What They Say:

A tea-leaf reading.
A prediction of turmoil.
Can your future really be told in a cup?

Chloe is feeling down in the dumps. Her best friend got married, her new boyfriend lives at the other end of the country and her ex won't leave her alone. Can she ever have a settled love life?

She has her fortune told, hoping to find some clues to her future.
Her tea cup reading promises a mixed future, with despair, love, new friends and two men fighting for her love. Only when Chloe finds her true self will the future be the happy one she longs for.

Join Chloe as misery strikes, hope returns and the battle for happiness begins.

What I Say:

Wow! I really loved reading All In the Leaves, the first book in this series and I have been quite excited about this, the second part of the series. And I have to say, I was not disappointed. Our friends Anna and Seamus are back, but this book focuses more on Chloe and her journey to happiness. It's not an easy road for her, as she faces much sadness and turmoil. It's not all doom and gloom though. There are plenty of laughs and lots of doggy love too.

This book rang true with me too. Chloe's journey felt like it was mine journey at times. I won't spoil the fun, but bus life comes into it, which I loved! There are so many fantastic supporting characters too, like Shell and Uncle. There's a lot of love in this book! We also get to explore Scotland, somewhere I've yet to travel to. Beautiful scenery, makes me really want to visit!

I also really love the spiritual aspect of Pat's writing. The connections and the feelings and readings. I love that stuff! Oh and the dreams! Wow! Vivid or what?! Oooh! And my favourite part!! The Battersea homing inspector! She's called Mrs Hills! Haha! That's me!! Well, technically, it was my Mums name, but you get it.

I adored everything about this book. I love that Pat doesn't feel the need to be smutty with her romantic scenes. There's a hint of sexiness, but that's all. It's very refreshing for this genre. All in all, this series is fantastic and deserves much more recognition that it's gotten! Read it and tell your friends!

Beautiful, spiritual, funny, sweet and unexpected. 9/10

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’…
