#BookReview: All Those Lies (DI Tracy Collier Book 1), Emmy Ellis

Title and Author: All Those Lies (DI Tracy Collier Book 1) by Emmy Ellis
Genre: Hard-boiled Mystery
Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Source: Amazon

Detective Inspector Tracy Collier has dreadful memories of her younger self, locked away in the recesses of her mind. She has blocked it out, to transform herself into a successful and confident hardcore DI, as a result.

The latest callout, a body hanging from rafters in a barn, gutted and innards on display. The modus operandi, similar to a discovery of the previous week, setting the scene of a serial killer at work.

The detail of a very well written plot in “All Those Lies”, by author Emmy Ellis, pulls the reader into a tale of gruesome murders, intrigue and heartbreak. It is a Hard-boiled Mystery in which DI Tracy Collier is compelled to face, and slay the demons of her childhood. Lies forced in her past will now follow Tracy into her future, but at least she doesn’t have to constantly wonder, live in fear, and look over her shoulder anymore.

Brilliantly written, I really enjoyed reading “All Those Lies” by Emmy Ellis, and highly recommend this book. I have just acquainted myself with DI Bethany Smith, another Series by Emmy Ellis, and is positively hooked on this author.

Do check out Emmy’s profile on Amazon and Goodreads for more of her fabulous work.

“All Those Lies” receives a 5 Star ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Rating from BookCRITICO!

Motivation for those who want to write a book and have not yet started. If you do not take a chance, you will never know. If you’re stuck on words, start by looking for a book cover or images for a book cover as creative inspiration. Good luck! Bookish greetings 🖍💻📚🤓!

Bookish Greetings! Blessings for the Festive Time, to all the book lovers, writers, authors, beta readers, proofreaders, editors, book cover designers and publishers worldwide! As 2019 is running out of pages in my diary, I’m winding down and slowly easing into a festive mood. There is more time for reading, some creative writing, popping out to the festive markets, enjoying light meals, beers, cappuccinos and munching on festive goodies. I’ll have time to reflect on 2019, and preparing for 2020, which will hopefully be exciting and full of magic!

Wherever you find yourself have a Bookish Time! Be Safe! Enjoy! Living between pages… 🖍💻📚🍷🤓♥️!

Pull out the Mac, iPad, Notebook, iPhone, Tablet… whatever will work for you, and pen the title, first few words, first paragraph, first page, possibly the first chapter.

What is on your weekend reading list?

What are you reading this weekend? Being a Crime Fiction and sub-genre fanatic, I opted for a Thriller, which I already started reading during the week. A Reason To Kill is the first book in the DI Matt Barnes Thriller Series, by author Michael Kerr. It is the first time that I read Michael Kerr, and I must say, I’m really enjoying the book so far. I got acquainted with Michael Kerr on the UK Crime Book Club Facebook Page, which I am a member of, and thought I will give his work a try.

Michael Kerr is a well-published author and his books are available on Amazon, you can also interact with him on Goodreads.

We’re mid-winter in my part of the world, so it is a fabulous time to snuggle up with a great read, and a cup-a-joe, hot-choc or nice glass of red on the side ☕️🍷📚! Have a fab weekend! Bookish greetings!

The Complete Collection of Short Stories: 2012-2018

1600x2560+Paul+Michael+Peters+Complete+Collection

Tales that are perfect for coffee breaks – but beware; like chocolate, they lure the reader into just one more.  Paul Michael Peters has created a magical collection of stories that help the reader look at the day from a different perspective. This is a collection that once you start you can’t put down. Stories are perfect for anyone trying to fit reading into a busy day.

What if you could remember everything? What would your life be like if your father was the worlds greatest illusionist? What if your partner was plotting against you? What actions would you avoid if you were the devil? These are only a few of the questions explored in this collection of short stories.

There is something about Peters writing that is almost intoxicating and leaves you wanting more. The light feel of the stories is relaxing and charming. Each story carries hints of mystery in connections waiting to be made. Each takes the reader on flights of well-drawn history and place and compelling characterization. A sense of parable and myth builds one story into the next, even when the path is so different. And the whole is a beautifully connected diorama of people and place.

Like your favourite Twilight Zone episodes, there’s an otherworldly beauty. Between 2012 and 2018 author Paul Michael Peters released two collections of short stories, “Mr Memory and Other Stories of Wonder,” and “Killing the Devil.” These followed his first publication, a novella called “Peter in Flight,” and in between his two novels “The Symmetry of Snowflakes,” and “Insensible Loss.”

Paul Michael Peters: The Complete Collection of Short Stories 2012 – 2018” includes all his published and unpublished stories. Top-selling author Paul Michael Peters is an American writer best known for his take on the quirky tangents and morals of contemporary life in his recent novel, Insensible Loss.

His upcoming novel, Combustible Punch, is a thriller that explores the psychological dance between that most unlikely of odd couples: a serial killer and a high school shooting survivor. (Book Blurb provided by author website)

BookCRITICO Review

This is a lovely book to read. I thoroughly enjoyed each and every story, with its interesting characters and different creative worlds. Because of the nature of the publication, I could read it in between other projects and still stay on track. Paul Michael Peters managed to create stories which transported me to other worlds and allowed my imagination to run wild. Mr Peters is a master story spinner, and The Complete Collection of Short Stories: 2012-2018 is a superb read which I highly recommend you give a try.
