And it's a 4.5 star one. "After all these stories, it feels like walking into the drawing room again and seeing old friends. What a joy."

One of my girls gave me a copy of Weird World War One for my birthday. Smashing little book, full of "Well, I'm blowed" moments.

Also, if I can have a little WWI indulgence, Awfully Glad got a smashing little review at Monday's Quick m/m bites.

"This short historical is just perfectly pitched to my somewhat picky ear."
charlie_cochrane: (jury of one)
It is the well written, well thought out, no stone left unturned storyline that leaves you satisfied in the end. I highly recommend this book!

"Even after 15 years together they still manage to excite, intrigue, romance, and infuriate each other and the reader."

My work is done!

From Just Love Book Reviews:

"This was mystery writing at its finest,..."
charlie_cochrane: (kiss the vicar)
"In summary, this easy-paced mystery was utterly engaging and left me eager for the next instalment. I would recommend this book/series to those who enjoy m/m historical mysteries or romantic suspense."

"and I especially loved the delicately written sex scenes, which read more like a holy experience rather than being flat-out smutty."

How does she do it? How does Charlie Cochrane’s mind come up with this stuff? Just when you think you might have it all figured out… That would be a no. I love it!

In which Hallowed Ground got a 5 star rating. "I loved the character voice of the doctor in this story".

It’s one part Sherlock Holmes, one part Poirot, and one part romance. The mystery is really what drives the plot, but the setting and characters really bring it to life.

Thanks you, Convergence Book Reviews!

"Quite often the blurb for a book exaggerates, or offers a promise that the words inside simply do not deliver. I am pleased to say that, in the case of A Pride of Poppies, the stories within do much, much more." Read the rest of the review here.

"I highly recommend this book and will buy and read the next in the series to see what mystery the author has for us next."

The Blogger girls found it to be a story that had me intrigued and eager to see how things would get resolved. They found it a tad too British - they should have seen the mss before edits!

As promised, here's the link to the full review of Best Corpse from the Mystery People e-zine. "This is an intriguing murder mystery, with an abundance of eccentric characters and an even larger number of red herrings. "

And if you haven't seen this, you should.

Top of my Christmas list is the Rugby for Heroes 2015 calendar. That picture of George Ford is haunting.

Nice review in the Mystery People e-zine for Best Corpse. Will post a link when it's on the site, but in the interim:

This is an intriguing murder mystery, with an abundance of eccentric characters and an even larger number of red herrings. Adam and Robin are likeable characters and their relationship is skilfully portrayed. I very much hope this is the first in a new series. I enjoyed this book and would thoroughly recommend it.

Some highlights: Being reviewed by the lovely Josie at Prism Book Alliance. "Charlie Cochrane has a way with words that never fails to hit the spot, and she always leaves me wondering about the characters long after I’ve finished the story."

Featuring at Words of Wisdom where it was rated as an "intensely emotional read".

And look what I nicked off the lovely Macky!

This week is madness (in a good way). Second Helpings release tomorrow and blog tour starting, Sand release on Friday, random blog posts unrelated to either, and some general stuff going on.

Will post some more Penzance stuff in a minute, but in the meantime, another review for Second Helpings, from All About Romance.

"...the lovely British atmosphere of the piece."

It may surprise you, but I hadn't seen the film Maurice in its entirety until yesterday. First thoughts are that it's very sympathetic to Clive Durham, perhaps too sympathetic. More reflections on that when I've re-read the relevant bit of the book. James Wilby is stunning, though, if the wrong build and hair colour for Maurice.

Oh, and another review for Second Helpings.
