Featured Reviews

3 in the David Hidalgo series, but can be read as a stand-alone too.

As a former priest convicted and imprisoned for sexual offences, Ramon has served his time and if now being released. 

He has plans!

He wants revenge on those he feels are responsible for his incarceration.

David Hidalgo and his fiancé, Gillian Lockhart are running the Southside Church in Edinburgh and planning their wedding. They also help the local Spanish community with language skills. 

When Andrea reads of murders in Spain, she believes she knows who is responsible and that she may be in danger. Who can she tell?  David gets involved, but can he stop the killer before anyone else dies?

This is a crime thriller with faith and the church at its heart. It tells of how some abused a position of trust and innocents were hurt.  Overall, an intriguing murder mystery with some thought provoking moments.

Thank you to Amber at Midas PR and NetGalley for a free ecopy of the book. This is my honest and unbiased review.

Mixed views from me , clunky dialogue perhaps on purpose to convey the complexity of learning English, perhaps not. The characters were largely forgettable and I really could not warm to them.

The author clearly knows Edinburgh well and moves around the city in a way which makes sense and I am sure that there is a Spanish community in Edinburgh (didn’t know this) . Little in the way of suspense as you know who and why from the beginning.

Let’s just say not a favourite of mine
