Blog Tour Stop - Not Just For Christmas by Alex Brown

Welcome to my stop on the #NotJustForChristmas blog tour! I adored this continuation of the Tindledale series! It was a lovely, touching read and this post has got me feeling all festive!
So, join Alex and the gang and find out who picked who for the Secret Santa!


Tindledale’s Secret Santa

To really get everyone in the festive spirit this year, Cher, the landlady of the Duck & Puddle pub on the village green, is running a Secret Santa evening. 

Click on the character to see whose name they picked out of the Santa’s hat and the gift they bought for them.

Sybil (manager of Hettie’s House of Haberdashery) picked Molly (the butcher’s wife) – knitted a little red jumper for her pet ferret.

Cooper (Village Butcher) picked Basil (Sybil’s black Scottie dog) – six of his finest award-winning sausages.

Lawrence (chair of the Tindledale Players Amateur Dramatics group) picked Mrs Pocket (Parish Council stalwart and village busybody)  - a sequin-covered rain bonnet to put a smile on her face … with any luck!

Taylor (runs Paws Pet Parlour) picked Monty the Black Labrador (retired service dog) – festive red collar and a shampoo bath with paw massage.

April (orchard owner and cider producer) picked Harvey (fruity fruit farmer) – a bottle of her finest mulled cider. 

Pete (dairy farmer and relief fire fighter) picked DeeDee (bon viveur, runs the Tea Dance club) – a fireman’s lift all the way down the High Street, once around the war memorial and back again followed by a complimentary hand-milking lesson.

Kitty (owner of The Spotted Pig café) picked Marigold (Lord Lucan’s wife and WI chair) – her special Panettone bread pudding with a jug of rum custard.

 Matt (village farrier and April’s husband) picked Teddie (Kitty’s little girl) – an afternoon helping out in the stables followed by a ride around the orchard on Joan, the beautiful, gentle old chestnut mare.

Thanks so much to Alex Brown for joining me today! Follow the rest of the tour using the hashtag #NotJustForChristmas on Twitter!

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’…
