Review – The Museum of Perfect Scenes by Kirran Thompson

I’ll start with a disclaimer. I’ve had this book on my Kindle for a while and the copy I read may NOT be the most up-to-date version. There were some editing and punctuation issues which I hope have been rectified in later editions. This is a great idea, imaginative and wistful. When she was aContinue reading “Review – The Museum of Perfect Scenes by Kirran Thompson”

Review – Virgin’s Curse by J.C. Seal

This was a fun read, bold and inventive, with immensely likeable characters. I haven’t read the other books, so came into this one cold. I have to say it works really well as a standalone novel, although reading the other books can only enrich the world the author has created. Elena is a great character;Continue reading “Review – Virgin’s Curse by J.C. Seal”

Book Review – Lost and Found (The Wiccan Haus) by Elizabeth Silver

Genre: Paranormal romance The Wiccan Haus is a collaboration of various authors, coming together to write stories within the same world, but that is as much as I know about the series. Lost and Found has characters that appear in other books by other authors, and alludes to past events, but that doesn’t matter, becauseContinue reading “Book Review – Lost and Found (The Wiccan Haus) by Elizabeth Silver”

Book Review – Far Away by Bryan T. Clark

Genre: MM Romance This was truly a gorgeous book, at a time when I was in the mood for a wallow into escapism. During the UK lockdown, there seems to be a lot of that. Books I might have found a little cloying, now just hit the spot. Because this is a truly romantic story.Continue reading “Book Review – Far Away by Bryan T. Clark”
