Level Up – Chapter 1

Level Up LEVEL 1: SURPRISE   “Seriously, I don’t think it’s possible to beat this final boss. He’s burning through our extra lives again. I can’t face another week like last week. Let’s just use that cheat code I told you about and get this over with.” My brow crinkles at the very suggestion. “No, we’re going to beat him properly.

Back on Track

Back on Track My old colleagues would laugh if they could see me now. Not that any of them would be caught dead on a tram. I used to be just like them, a big shot, on my way to the top.

I’m playing catch up with my #YearOfIndie, which was helped greatly by how much I enjoyed this latest book. I initially received an Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) but due to my delays in reviewing the book and because of how much I enjoyed it I ended up buying a copy anyway! I suppose I should probably remind you that this weeks book was Murder at the Playgroup by Liz Hedgecock: As usual I put a review up on Amazon and Goodreads. Here is what I had to say: This is my first cozy mystery and it was a great...
