Welcome at the Promo post of A Lesson in Murder by Matthew Costello and Neil Richards.
Nothing ever happens in the small Cotswold village of Cherringham, making it the perfect place to retire to – or so ex-NYPD Detective Jack Brennan thought. But before long, local web designer and single mother Sarah Edwards had convinced him to help her investigate a suspicious suicide. Since then, he and Sarah have solved mysterious deaths, unlikely accidents and perplexing robberies. “Peace and quiet” never really suited Jack anyway…
Cherringham is an ongoing “cosy crime” eBook series, that launched in December 2013 and features unlikely sleuthing duo Sarah and Jack. Released in monthly episode, it is written by award-winning game and TV writers UK-based Neil Richards and US-based Matthew Costello in a transatlantic collaboration – which mirrors that of Jack and Sarah. The new series, released from March, launches with A Lesson in Murder, in which the two are asked to investigate the violent death of a popular teacher at Cherringham Girls School.
And another challenge has appeared!! Last week’s challenge was to read a book by an Irish Author and I decided to read Driving Home for Christmas by Emma Hannigan after a recommendation. And I really enjoyed this book – which also means I have completed the challenge! YAAAY Me, especially after last week.
This week’s challenge will be a little bit out of my comfort zone, which will be interesting.
This one will tie in easy with my Netgalley challenge I set myself and I will read The Whispers (Whispers #1) by Lisa Unger and as it is a short story, I will see if I can read The Burning Girl (Whispers #2) by Lisa as well.

I thought I would try out a new feature for my blog – my books read in the previous month! Next month I will also add ‘books bought’ and ‘books received’. But the latter was so much (check my post on book haul from a friend) that I decided to keep it at books read for this time ^_^
Even though I had a bit of a book slumber and besides it was mega busy at work I did managed to read a total of 6 books. A couple of reviews are already up and a couple are coming, but I will let you know about these below.

Welcome to the Blog tour + Review for the awesome book Misplaced by Lee Murray. This book follows Adam a 17 year old boy (Almost 18) dealing with his ‘missing’ mum. Why have I put missing between brackets? Well it’s because this book has taught me that missing can have several meanings.
This book is dedicated to Florence Bloise, who disappeared February 2003 in France and is also ‘misplaced’.
