Blog Tour Stop - A Parcel for Anna Browne by Miranda Dickinson

Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for the gorgeously sparkly A Parcel for Anna Browne!

I am a huge fan of Miranda Dickinson and her books are sure to bring a smile to my face so this book had me excited from the word go!

What They Say:

The gift of a lifetime?

Anna Browne is an ordinary woman living an ordinary life. Her day job as a receptionist in bustling London isn't exactly her dream, yet she has everything she wants. But someone thinks Anna Browne deserves more . . .

When a parcel addressed to Anna arrives, she has no idea who has sent it. Inside she finds a beautiful gift - one that is designed to be seen. And so begins a series of incredible deliveries, each one bringing Anna further out of the shadows and encouraging her to become the woman she was destined to be. As Anna grows in confidence, others begin to notice her - and her life starts to change.
But who is sending the mysterious gifts, and why?

What I Say:

Right from the beginning, this book had me hooked! I was drawn into Anna's world straight away and really liked her warmth and compassion. She's loveable and sweet, kind and caring. She's loyal to her friends but doesn't suffer fools. Her friend Tish was awesome! (I wonder why I liked her?!) Jonah was proper drool worthy and I have a picture of him in my head as a big, scruffy teddy bear and I adored him! And then there was Ben... I won't say a lot about Ben, but I wasn't so sure about him.

I liked watching Anna grow and change as her self belief and confidence grew with each parcel that arrived. It's a journey we all need to make, though I'm not sure how many of us actually do it! The gifts were so thoughtful and beautiful and the mystery behind it all kept me guessing!

I'm not sure what else to say that won't give the story away! You just really, really need to read this book! Like now!! This is what Miranda does to me! She leaves me babbling incoherently and unable to form a complete sentence, her books are just that good!!

So, just do yourself a favour and buy this book! Take from it what you will (a lesson I will carry with me!) and let it help you become who you want to be! A huuuge, sparkly, gift wrapped 10/10

Thanks to Francesca Pearce at Pan Macmillan for sending me a gorgeous copy of this book in exchange for my honest review! Also, thanks for the charm bracelet!!

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’…
