Mills & Boon Insider - April 2017

I've been selected to be one of the Mills & Boon Insiders, so from now on, every month, I will share with you their new books, because I love mystery and crime, but every now and then is nice to have a little bit of romance in your life, don't you think? ;)
This month I will recommend you...

Conveniently Wed To The Greek by Kandy Shepherd
A beautiful island and a handsome greek are the perfect ingredients for a love romance...!
Neither Dell or Alex are searching for love, they just have a business contract, but you know that love grows when you less expect it and in the more curious moments, don't you think?
This quick read will delight you with a sweet romance in a sublime Greek island and with a delicious story to entertain everyone. Ready?

The Sheikh's Bought Wife by Sharon Kendrick
Jane and Zayed don't love each other, the most appropriate word would be, tolerate... so a marriage between them would be volatile, at least... They decide that if they marry it would be beneficial for them both, and after six months they can divorce... but living with someone day and night could make the anger sparks turn to love, and maybe the marriage is not a bad idea?
With some high voltage scenes and a lot of pleasure, we will fall at the playboy Zayed net... will it be enough for Jane?
Enjoy this dessert passion!

Mummy, Nurse... Duchess? by Kate Hardy
Can a widow mother of two fall in love again?
Rosie is a nurse and a mother, and she thinks is not yet ready to find a father for her child... but Cupid has other plans for her and will throw a love spell between her and the new handsome doctor, Leo, who is a Duke too! Rosie just has to let everything fit in... but maybe is too scared?
I liked this sweet story where we learn about some illnesses and we can understand Rosie's behaviour and her fear to love again, but love is almost always worth it, don't you think?
A romantic novel for medical lovers!

Amnesia by Michael Ridpath

Amnesia by Michael Ridpath
Genre: Psychological Thriller
Source: Corvus
Rating: 5/5

Alistair has amnesia after falling the stairs and a young family friend, Clémence, will try to help him recover his memory... But when Clémence find a manuscript pointing Alistair as a killer, she is ready to make him remember all his sins. Ready for a trip to the past?

"The stalker found her the next day, face-down in the loch, caught up in the gnarled fingers of a fallen tree. At first they thought she had drowned, but when the police came and examined her properly they found finger marks on her throat; she had been strangled."

This is a mystery inside a mystery, a surprise after surprise that will make you get hooked on every page of this book!
While we are reading this book, we can feel the pain of Alistair, something on his subconscious tells him that is not good to remember, but not knowing your life is even worth. So with Clémence's help, they will read the book of his past, his student years and adult life with his friends and the mysterious woman who was found dead near the lake. Was he really the killer or his memory is triggering a hateful job? 
Did he really kill the love of his life because she didn't want to leave her husband and sons? He had dreamed for a long time to be with her, is he really capable of killing when the life doesn't suit him? He covered a killing before... maybe now he is the murderer!
Michael Ridpath has made an excellent job describing the amazing landscapes and views from Alistair trips and the silent cottage Alistair lives near the loch, we can almost feel the sound of the water in the loch.
This is a masterpiece, for the lovers of mystery, a good read lovers or the ones searching for the pleasure to enjoy a good time!
What would you like to forget?

Nothing In The News by Sideline Collective

A curious project by Sideline Collective...

Yes, we live in particularly sensitive times. Times where the truth really matters, and where newspapers have a more important role to play in modern democracies than ever before. But for a society addicted to breaking news, gossip, and celebrity status, to Facestagram and Twapchat, the latest trends, and the top tens, to sports punditry, conspiracy theories, cat videos, and ridiculous amounts of porn ... for this cultural precipice, we offer the one thing you need more than anything else: “Nothing”. Absolutely nothing. Today, and today only, there is Nothing in the News. Enjoy it whilst you can.

Glass Works by Yuko Yuko Matsumoto

A pendant sometimes is something delicate and precious that you hold near your heart because it means more than the money you pay, I think one of these little glass works from the artist Yuko Yuko Matsumoto would be like that. These necklaces are hand made will a little plant or water inside, to look at it and enjoy while you are wearing it! 
This is beautiful present for someone you love or simply because you like it, don't you think?
