Alaskan Holiday by Debbie Macomber #BookReview #BlogTour

An uplifting tale of finding unexpected love in the Alaskan wilderness from bestselling author, Debbie Macomber.

Before beginning her new job as sous chef at one of Seattle's finest restaurants, Josie Stewart takes on a six-month position cooking at a lodge in an Alaskan lake town. It's only temporary--or so she thinks, as she becomes a valued part of the local community, falling in love with the people who call the Klutina Lake home.

But one man, in particular, stands out among the rest of Josie's new friends: an intriguing swordsmith whose very existence forces her to question whether her heart wants to return to Washington at all.

I'm delighted to be hosting the blog tour for Alaskan Holiday by Debbie Macomber today. Many thanks to the author and Rachel Kennedy from Arrow for inviting me and for my advance copy of the novel.

I don't tend to read much romantic fiction but as Christmas approaches, there is something about the season that means I'm drawn to books…

Brothers in Blood by Amer Anwar #CoverReveal

It's such an honour to be taking part in the cover reveal for Brothers in Blood by Amer Anwar today. Last year I was privileged to read this fabulous book under its previous title, Western Fringes. Since then, Dialogue Books have signed Amer and are republishing his CWA Debut Dagger Award winning book. I'm so thrilled for him and hope that even more people read his brilliant debut. Before I reveal the cover, here's what Brothers in Blood is about;

Winner of the CWA Debut Dagger
A Sikh girl on the run.
A Muslim ex-con who has to find her.
A whole heap of trouble.
Southall, West London. After being released from prison, Zaq Khan is lucky to land a dead-end job at a builders' yard. All he wants to do is keep his head down and put the past behind him.
But when Zaq is forced to search for his boss's runaway daughter, he quickly finds himself caught up in a deadly web of deception, murder and revenge.
With time running out and pressure mounting, can Zaq find the missing girl before it's too late? And if he does, can he keep her - and himself - alive long enough to deal with the people who want them both dead?

"An engaging hero, a cunning plot, and a fascinating journey into Southall’s underworld. We’ll be hearing a lot more from Amer Anwar."
– Mick Herron

"A fine debut novel. With his engaging characters and skilful plotting, Anwar brings a fresh and exciting new voice to the genre."
– Ann Cleeves

Brothers in Blood will be published by Dialogue Books on 6th September 2018 and can be pre-ordered here. You can read my review here.

It really is a brilliant thriller and I think the cover complements it superbly. So I guess you'd like to see it?


Ta da!!



I love it and hope it will tempt you to read it -  you're certainly in for a treat if you love action-packed, witty and contemporary urban noir! Thank you so much Amer for asking me to take part in this cover reveal, I wish you every success with Brothers in Blood.
