Book Review - Curse The Moon Cold War Rising by Lee Jackson

Our Book Review
When this novel arrived through my letter box I just had to read it immediately and I was not disappointed.   It is based around Cuba and the Fidel Castro takeover of the island, which is one of my favourite periods in history.  This book had me hooked from page one to the end, every page was full of action, suspense and mystery which made me want to follow the Heroes plight and journey.

The story and characters make an exceptional read.  The main character is caught up in a web of intrigue and entrapment and an unknown source is holding sway over his actions and future which adds extra spice and excitement to an excellent thriller.

Excellent emotive writing really makes the characters spring to life and you really join in with their personal struggles making the reader wanting to whisper in the ears of the characters to help them through.  The research and knowledge that the author has really shines through and the descriptive images that are portrayed makes you think that you are wherever the action is taking place.

An excellent read full of historic content and questioning what was really going on the island of Cuba and who really did pull the strings, the Americans or the Russians, leaving the poor people to fight for survival.

This is one of the best books I have been asked to read and review for a long time and this author is definitely going to be on my list and if you like an excellent novel please read this one.

Our Rating
'a very easy'

Perfectly Pure and Good
By Frances Fyfield
Harper Collins

Family fights, suicides, sirens, death, and even a ghost. Everything happens here …

Attorney Sarah Fortune is dispatched to a small coastal town to straighten out the financial affairs of the eccentric Pardoe family. The three siblings and their mother, who is suffering from dementia, own most of Merton on Sea. The business of the estate should be simple enough, and Sarah sees the job as an opportunity for a mini-vacation—a chance to get out of the city.

But she soon discovers that the family, and the town itself, are afflicted by a past filled with guilt, pain, and unrequited love. Most haunting of all, though, is the legacy of a suicide that took place two years ago, when a beautiful woman with an uncanny resemblance to Sarah walked into the sea and never came back …

Fans of Ruth Rendell and Julia Spencer-Fleming will love this atmospheric psychological thriller.

When a Harvard Architecture School superstar plunges off the balcony
at a graduation party, the police see an accident, not foul play. But

Rivulets of Blood

CS Forster
FREE 3/20 - 3/22

A simple matter of being in the wrong place at the wrong time turns into a terrifying nightmare.

A Sheriff who is past his prime, an inexperienced Deputy and a temporary one who knows all about deadly dangers.

Advertising Executive Jason Hadley’s wonderful life is plummeting into an abyss. Will he and his beautiful wife Shelby be able to overcome their problems despite all the horrifying obstacles in their way?


He got out of the car pulling the brim of his Stetson down for more protection against the rain and let out a string of swear words as he stepped into the mud up to his ankles. Putting his hand on the gun he slowly approached the cabin.

‘Everything looks fine, I reckon I will look like a fool disturbing them at nearly midnight’.

As he got closer and not seeing anything suspicious, he started to relax even more until he caught a glimpse of the front door standing half open.

‘Now that can’t be good’ he thought, considering his next step.
