Wood: A PsyCop Short - Jordan Castillo Price

JCP certainly knows how to write amazing shorts! Wood packs some heat, a lot of fun and easygoing humor, as well as family feels.

 

Jacob's uncle, Leon, needs help assembling some bookcases he bought at SaverPlus, because who the hell needs IKEA, when they got the next best thing downtown. They got better instructions anyway, if they manage to make two grown ass men snicker and get all hot and bothered.

 

And good Lord, are the sexy times through the roof here. Everything's more fun when you're this close to getting caught by a family member. Not only that, but Vic & Jacob's love for one another shines through.

 

[...] we lingered there for one more moment, and held each other, and savored the feeling of wanting and being wanted.

There will be woe in the World.
There will be no more laughter on the wind.

Review: For Reasons Unknown by Michael Wood
For Reasons Unknown - Michael Wood

Published by: Killer Reads (5th November 2015)

 

ISBN: 978-0008158675

 

Source: Purchased

 

Rating: 5*

 

Synopsis:

DCI Matilda Darke has returned to work after a nine month absence. A shadow of her former self, she is tasked with re-opening a cold case: the terrifyingly brutal murders of Miranda and Stefan Harkness. The only witness was their eleven-year-old son, Jonathan, who was too deeply traumatized to speak a word.

Then a dead body is discovered, and the investigation leads back to Matilda's case. Suddenly the past and present converge, and it seems a killer may have come back for more…

 

Review:

For Reasons Unknown has been languishing on my TBR for far too long, so I've started the year as I mean to go on, and what a cracking start! This is crime writing at its very best and I'm seriously impressed. The plot had me on the edge of my seat, it's full of twists and turns that I didn't see coming, the characters are great...DCI Matilda Darke is brilliant! The ending had me actually shouting 'Noooo!' at my kindle!

 

DCI Matilda Darke is a fantastic character. She's a little broken, but there's a glimpse of fighting spirit underneath, which I'm looking forward to seeing more of in subsequent books. There's lots of interaction with her colleagues too, which I really enjoyed, so I hope to see some of those again too. 

 

The author has an easy way of drawing you in and keeping you interested in the story throughout. His intelligent writing style and great use of detail really made the story come alive. I thoroughly enjoyed it and highly recommend it to all readers of crime and psychological thrillers and police procedurals.

YA novel about alternative fairy tales' encroachment on our world – Quite good
The Hazel Wood - Melissa Albert

 

This novel, aimed at the Young Adult readership, involves Alice trying to find out more about a book of fairy tales written by her grandmother. When the fairytale world and ours inter-mingle, problems arise and Alice ends up on a voyage of self-discovery. The characterisation is good with a fair amount of introspection and some of the descriptions are original and well thought-out. The plot takes a bit too long to develop and to reach its end. Quite good but I feel that there are better examples of this genre.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
