Flash Giveaway – Face Value – Ian Andrew

Wright & Tran Crime Series

“Greetings – New Year – New Book

Belated Happy 2017 – I hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year.

I know a lot of you have already read Books 1 & 2 of the Wright & Tran Crime Series, so I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know that book 3 – Fall Guys – is being released soon. (If you haven’t read any of them yet, scroll down for a very limited time, special offer.)

Fall Guys kicks off with a Special Forces mission into Syria it soon becomes apparent that not all is as it should be…

“We want to know why the Brits are selling weapons to ISIS”

When a break-in threatens Britain’s National Security, Franklyn calls on Wright & Tran but Kara will have to take this case on her own. Tien wants nothing to do with the world of Private Investigations and even less to do with the world of Franklyn. Kara goes solo, but finding who is responsible for the break-in is the easy part. Finding who the real criminals are is much, much harder. ” Ian Andrew

Here’s what some reviewers thought of Face Value:

“Face Value, very different in theme to his first book, once again proves Andrew to be a versatile and gifted writer who delivers books that hold readers from beginning to end. With very well-constructed plots, Andrew delivers adrenaline and excitement laced with imaginative, innovative technology with memorable characters who provide heart and substance to his work.”
(Elaine Fry – The West Australian)

What a fantastic discovery!  This book easily scores a place in my “Top Reads of 2016”! Fast paced, action packed, explosive, compulsive writing and with not one but two particularly interesting and empathetic female protagonists! (Carol Seeley – Reading,Writing and Riesling)

Doesn’t Time Fly?

Here it is December 2016 already.  I cant believe it – this year has flown by, life has been busy; a grandson was born and he is now 8 months old.  Recipes have been tried and tested and many books have been read and reviewed – around the one hundred seventy mark thus far.

I am enjoying sharing the joy of reading with my grandson (with  appropriate titles) – it is never too early to encourage a love of reading.

Recently I invited a couple of ardent readers to share some of their favoruite reads on my site – to broaden the type of book reviews available here.  I hope you find some new favourite books and authors.  Thank you Bec and Brenda.


The reading year has not yet wound up – there is a blog tour ahead; the launch of Rachel Amphlett’s new police procedural series, Scared to Death. There is a   Q & A with debut Perth writer Anthea Hodgson, a Christmas menu to compile and share and a series of “best of 2016 reads” for you to comment on and…more reviews.



Seasons greetings to you.
