It is my great pleasure to welcome one of my very favourite book bloggers to damppebbles today, the super lovely Gordon Mcghie of Grab This Book. I am particularly thrilled to have Gordon join me as it’s the last #R3COMM3ND3D2017 of the 2017 series and we’re going out with a bang. Gordon is the person I blame the most for my book buying habit, so if you’re looking to restock your TBR then make a point of following his blog! You won’t regret it.
Plus, it may be ‘someone’s’ blogiversary today and they’re entering the troublesome twos (expect much foot stamping in the supermarket and the occasional tantrum because the food on my plate all touches! Hahaha).
Anyway, back to #R3COMM3ND3D2017. #R3COMM3ND3D2017 is where I invite authors and book bloggers to shout about three books they love. Any three books, providing they were published in 2017. As I said, this is the last of the 2017 series but #R3COMM3ND3D will return on 1st November 2018 featuring all of the bookish delights we have experienced during this year. If you would like to take part then make sure you bookmark THIS page and pop back when you’ve found your three books. Let’s face it, 14th January may be a smidge too early to fill the form in!
Here are Gordon’s choices….
In The Still by Jacqueline Chadwick (Ali Dalglish Book #1)
Take a feisty Scottish lead character.
Drop her into a remote Canadian town where she is bound to offend the locals with her “forthright” approach to life.
Then pit her against a sadistic killer.
A dark, clever thriller which I could not put down.
The Lost Village by Neil Spring
I love a good ghost story and Neil Spring writes a damned fine creepy tale. You may have caught The Ghost Hunters on ITV last year? The Lost Village takes the same lead characters and has them investigating strange occurrences in an abandoned village on Salisbury Plain. Chilling storytelling.
Tag You’re Dead by Douglas Skelton
Dominic Queste is a smart mouthed investigator who never knows when to keep his mouth shut. Unfortunately his quips and puns will not be enough to keep him out of trouble. Queste is being stalked by a sadistic killer who wants to torment Dom before bumping him off…it is a shame Dom is too busy looking for a butcher to worry about a stalker.
Brilliant recommendations, thank you Gordon! I’ve downloaded ‘The Lost Village’ thanks to your recommendation. I do love a ghost story. I already have a Jacqueline Chadwick and a Douglas Skelton on the TBR so I’m even more excited about reading those now.
If Gordon has managed to tempt you, or if you would like to find out more about the books he recommends then please see the following amazon.co.uk links:
I am Gordon and I have been running my blog: Grab This Book since 2014.
In June 2017 I won a UK Blog Award when Grab This Book topped the “Hidden Gem” category – this may be why you have not heard of me!

Thank you so much for joining me today, Gordon. My thanks to all of the book bloggers, authors, reviewers and everyone else who has played a part in the success of this series. It was a tiny idea which has grown into something quite magnificent. I have LOVED every minute and I cannot wait until we’re on the #R3COMM3ND3D2018 road. Roll on November 1st 😄.
