Falklands War novel,
A Cold Night in June.
Available from Amazon in Paperback & Kindle format 15th May.

Foreword by Major Justin Featherstone MC.

Young Archie is on the business end of the British advance across East Falkland. Argentina has invaded the islands in a bid to win over a disgruntled public back home.

Archie’s unit, 3 PARA, endure a forced march from their landing site at San Carlos over ankle busting, windswept terrain, to a position within striking distance of the Argentine Army.

Before them lay a series of mountains, heavily defended by raw conscripts and seasoned regulars. 3 PARA’s objective, the daunting feature of Mount Longdon which dominates the road to the island’s capital, Port Stanley, and the main Argentine garrison.

They must capture this feature in order for the road to be open to the capital, and with it, the collapse of the Argentine resistance.

THE COMFORT OF LIES: A NOVEL BY Randy Susan Meyers, reviewed. Excellent novel about open adoptions and the lives of three women ruled by their lies.

The first few sentences are stunning! 
The author manages to set the mood by putting himself in the head of one of the victims, aged of twelve, facing a serial killer who kills little girls the day of their 13th birthday.
The end is also unexpected and confusing. 
A great one!

This book is a beauty, a marvel ... Emotions are intense, extremes. The author speaks of death, loss, hopelessness and it hits you in the heart. It is so tragic that it's beautiful. It's so beautiful, it hurts. 
A must read!

An original love story. Amazing, moving, touching without being incredible, it's a nice breath of fresh air!
I was touched by all the flaws and weaknesses of these exquisite characters together with the very just vision of our society pictured despite the fact that we are in a fiction. 
This book has captivated my attention, has made me smile and made me laugh!
