A very warm welcome to the blog today and to another fabulous #R3COMM3ND3D2018 post. Today I am delighted to welcome author, Linda Huber, to the blog to share her three recommended reads. I had the pleasure of reading one of Linda’s books, Ward Zero, back in 2016 and you can read that review by clicking HERE. But today Linda joins me to promote her latest release, The Cold Cold Sea.
If you’re new to #R3COMM3ND3D2018 then let me explain. #R3COMM3ND3D2018 is a feature I run at the end of the year where I invite book bloggers, authors and publishers to choose three must read titles. We all want to share the ‘book love’ so this is your opportunity to shout about the books that have made you sit up and take note. There’s a catch though. All three books you recommend must have been published this year; any genre, any author but published in 2018.
Here are the books Linda has chosen…
After He’s Gone by Jane Isaac (DC Beth Chamberlain #1)
After He’s Gone is very different kind of police procedural, a case seen through the eyes of a Family Liason Officer. It’s tense, gripping, and the ending was a complete surprise.
Deception Wears Many Faces by Maggie James
This is a taut read, the kind where you want to scream at the main character to stop, but of course, you can’t…
Murder on the Marshes by Clare Chase (A Tara Thorpe Mystery #1)
This one’s a great mystery with a great sense of place, too, and the characters are fascinatingly different.
Great choices, thank you Linda. I am a huge fan of Jane Isaac’s books and cannot wait for the second book in the DC Beth Chamberlain series which is published in December. The other two are going on the wishlist!
If Linda has managed to tempt you or if you would like to find out more about the books, then please see the following amazon.co.uk links:
Linda Huber grew up in Glasgow, Scotland, but went to work in Switzerland for a year aged twenty-two, and has lived there ever since. Her day jobs have included working as a physiotherapist in hospitals and schools for handicapped children, and teaching English in a medieval castle. Her writing career began in the nineties, when she had over fifty short stories published in women’s magazines. Several years later, she turned to psychological suspense fiction, and has had seven novels published. Linda’s latest project is a series of feel-good novellas, set on the banks of Lake Constance, just minutes from her home in north-east Switzerland. She really appreciates having the views enjoyed by her characters right on her own doorstep!
About The Cold Cold Sea:
They stared at each other, and Maggie felt the tightness in her middle expand as it shifted, burning its way up… Painful sobs rose in her throat as Colin, his face expressionless now, reached for his mobile and tapped 999.
When three-year-old Olivia disappears from the beach, a happy family holiday comes to an abrupt end. Maggie is plunged into the darkest nightmare imaginable – what happened to her little girl?
Further along the coast, another mother is having problems too. Jennifer’s daughter Hailey is starting school, and it should be such a happy time, but the child has become moody and silent. Family life has never seemed so awkward, and Jennifer struggles to maintain control.
The tide ebbs and flows, and summer dies, but there is no comfort for Maggie, alone now at the cottage, or for Jennifer, still swamped by doubts.
