I am mentally and physically exhausted from yesterday. This morning I woke up completely drained. So I have decided to give you all a bit of a fun update. Yesterday we received the last parts in the mail needed to get my new X-carve up and running. YAY!!! Hubby ripped open that envelope so fast, you would have thought he was finally getting his Malt-O-Meal decoder ring that he ordered 8 to 10 weeks ago. In the part went, and piece of scrap wood was set in the machine, and away it went carving a trivet for us. The trivet was supposed to take two hours, but the drill bit broke on a knot in the wood part way through the carve. BUMMER! But I wasn’t really too upset, lesson learned. I know there will be plenty more lessons, so I we will just have to be patient. I will be posting plenty of pictures later as soon. In the meantime, enjoy the free books!

MURDER ON THE OLD BOG ROAD: gripping Irish crime fiction (The Galway Homicides Book 1)
by David Pearson
3.9 Stars (442 Reviews)
Genre: Crime Fiction | Mystery

FREE for a limited time

A woman is found dead in a ditch. As the list of suspects grows, a town’s dirty secrets are revealed.

It’s a cold winter evening and rain is sweeping in from the Atlantic when a young woman, having braved the weather to visit her sick mother in a remote part of Ireland, comes across an obstacle in the road. She clears the highway of stones from a damaged bridge only to see the body of a woman in a ditch. With no phone reception, she travels to the nearest police station to report what she has found.

The local Garda waste no time in attending the scene of the crime. The woman is clearly dead, but it needs proper forensics to establish if foul play was the cause. In the meantime, is it not possible that the woman driver was in fact the culprit? She is clearly not telling the whole truth.

A game of cat and mouse ensues when the inquiry is upgraded to a murder investigation. The trouble is, when the victim is recognised as a sex worker, there is no shortage of possible suspects. And few of them, if any, are willing to tell the truth to the police. It will take all of Galway detectives Hays and Lyons’ experience to cut through the web of lies and identify the killer in their midst.

MURDER ON THE OLD BOG ROAD is the first in a series of atmospheric crime fiction titles featuring Detective Inspector Mick Hays and Detective Sergeant Maureen Lyons.

From the bestselling author of ‘Unrelenting’ comes the heartbreaking first-in-series, War Girls: Ursula, a harrowing tale of courage and conscience, love and survival under the Third Reich.

In Berlin, 1943, compassion is a crime.

Newlywed Ursula Hermann is a simple woman, wanting nothing more than an end to the war and the return of her husband from the Russian front.

But some things are not meant to be.

The authorities determine that Ursula’s contribution to the war effort is to guard a prison for undesirables and political prisoners.

Then, the unthinkable happens. A prisoner, Royal Air Force pilot Tom Westlake escapes, and Ursula looks the other way. If her single act of mercy is discovered, her life is forfeit.

When the injured airman returns, seeking her help, it is her opportunity to turn over the enemy and save herself from destruction. In a world where right has become wrong, and wrong has become right, Ursula must make a decision: obey the fatherland, or follow her conscience.

Inspired by true historical events, War Girl Ursula is the unforgettable story of one young woman’s moral courage in the face of unspeakable suffering.
