I am absolutely over the moon to be able to tell you that Finding Forever has won the Summer Indie Book Awards 2017 in the Thriller Category. I still don’t know how this happened. Okay, I do because it’s thank to everyone that voted, but it is something I never imagined happening when I picked up my pen last year and decided it was time to follow my dreams. Finding Forever was my first ever fiction piece and to have it pick up an award is just mind-blowing. I’d like to thank everyone who voted for my romantic suspense novella. You have no idea what this means to me.

Book Review: Death Made Me by Keeley Webb

Last week I had the pleasure of reading Death Made Me by Keeley Webb and I’ve posted my review below along with the book cover and description.

I absolutely loved this book and was gripped from the very first page. The author weaves an amazing tale of love and loss and the lessons learned in death. The writing is flawless and I loved the tone and style. The first half of the book tells Barry’s story and I loved all the characters and how they interact. I also loved the end of his section where he took his mother upon her death to be with his father. There were lots of moments throughout where I had tears in my eyes. Part two of the book is Emily’s story and once more I was gripped. I loved everything that happened and how all the characters grew and matured as the story continued. I found everything so believable as if I were a part of the story and this is what makes a great book for me. Being able to immerse myself in the story and become the characters. This truly was an amazing book and I can’t wait to read the sequel. This is one author I am adding to my watch list. If you are looking for something a little different that will grip you from the start and have you turning the pages, then this book is a great choice.
