Blog Tour of “Visions”, by Helen J. Christmas @rararesources @SFDPBeginnings

Visions Full tour Banner

I am thrilled to be part of Rachel’s Random Resources Blog Tour for Visions.

Visions is a psychological thriller set in rural England. The year is 1985. It’s been 12 years since Eleanor escaped London, discarding the fragments of her tragic past to discover a new life. She is hiding in a remote country village, a place where she truly believes she is safe.

Her neighbour, James Barton-Wells is desperate to save his historic country house from ruin but this has attracted the attention of a wealthy property developer from London whose seemingly altruistic offer to ‘bankroll the restoration’ masks a sinister game plan. Suspicious of his motives, Eleanor consults her friend, Charles Bailey. But Charlie has his own story, fearful that Perry Hampton is the man who undoubtedly destroyed his own life.

The characters are drawn together in a battle to save Westbourne House, oblivious to the menace that surrounds them. Threats, stalking and deception lie at the root of the Hamptons evil. Yet it is not until Eleanor comes face to face with them, she recognises a deadly enemy from the past.

Can Eleanor unravel the clues that conceal an evil crime committed in the 70s? This book will draw you into a world of suspense with shocking psychological twists you will never see coming…

Author Bio –

Helen J. Christmas lives on the south coast with her husband. With a love of writing since childhood, she started her decade spanning thriller series ‘Same Face Different Place’ in 2011 and published her debut novel, ‘Beginnings’ in 2012. Visions was the second book of the series and published in 2013; a suspense novel which explores British culture and social history in the 80s as well as the most evil traits people are capable of. The 16th Century cottage in which Helen lives with her husband (restored in 1991) provided endless inspiration for Visions, along with some very special places in Sussex that she loves. Writing is something she fits around her family and social life. Helen is a self employed web designer and works from home with her husband, Peter. They enjoy the company of a faithful border collie and a beautiful white cat, though Helen confesses to have dreamed up many of her storylines, whilst walking Barney around the nearby beach and park.

Visions

My Review:

I have not read the first book in this series, but I found this book to cover most of what the reader needs to know to read this book. Such a great story and great writing. This book will take you on a journey back in time, as well as an emotional roller coaster. It is called a Psychological Thriller, and it most definitely is that, but it’s much more. For me it was a time travel, love story, emotional thriller, as well as psychological thriller.

Peregrine Hampton, a ruthless business man, who always gets what he wants and he let’s no one stand in his way to get it. He will stoop to many lows to get the Westbourne House that he wants in the countryside of England. The time is the 1980’s and the reader is put in the time with this story. He has big ideas of how he can make money with this property, but he has to acquire it first.

James Barton-Wells, the original owner of the Westbourne House is determined to make the necessary repairs to keep the hotel up and running while still making money. It’s his families heritage after all. He wants the house and property to go to his children when he passes on. Avalon and William, James’ children are both in their teens. William is still in school and helps out when he is home on vacations from school, but Avalon works with her father daily and is very proud of what they have in the hotel and surrounding grounds to offer their guests.

Eleanor Chapman, a young woman who came to Aldwyck to hide from a tragic past and survive. She lives in a caravan on the surrounding property of Westbourne House and is a very good friend to James and is children. Eleanor has a son who she is protecting by living in an unconventional way. She works as a nurse and is very caring. She will do anything she can to help those that she cares about. Unbeknownst to Eleanor, she has met Peregrine Hampton before, and she worries about his motives in trying to acquire Westbourne House. Her past will come back to haunt her in more ways than she is prepared for.

I really enjoyed this story and look forward to the continuation of it in the near future. If you like a book that will take you on an emotional and psychological thrill ride, then you should pick up this book. Great job with this story, Ms. Christmas. I look forward to reading more of your work. I give this book a 5 star review.

BLOG TOUR - Murder by Fire

MURDER BY FIRE by Faith Martin.

 

Looking for a brilliant best-selling murder mystery with a feisty female detective?

Meet DI HILLARY GREENE, a policewoman struggling to save her career and catch criminals.

David Merchant’s body is found in a bonfire in his back garden. David was a publisher and devout Christian. Who would want to kill this seemingly very decent man?

DI Hillary Greene faces one of her most puzzling cases as she struggles to find anyone with a strong motive to kill the pious publisher.

Then, as Hillary unearths greedy business partners and an estranged son, her focus is diverted when a new team member is targeted by a vicious gang.

Hillary’s under massive pressure and will she finally crack? And if she does, where will she go from here?

This is a crime mystery full of well-observed characters, which will have you gripped from start to the absolutely heart-stopping conclusion.

MURDER BY FIRE is the tenth in a series of page-turning crime thrillers set in Oxfordshire.

Perfect for fans of Agatha Christie, Colin Dexter, or Ruth Rendell.

Murder by fire

 

THE LOCATION

Kidlington itself, the home of Thames Valley Police HQ.  Almost regarded as a suburb of Oxford, there is some debate in Kidlington whether it is a town or a village! If it’s a village, it’s a very large one, with supermarkets, garages, plenty of pubs and a small shopping centre. It sits on a plain that was once devoted to farming, with several small satellite villages around it, such as Hampton Poyle and Yarnton. It also has a small airport, once known as Oxford Airport, but recently renamed to include London in the title!

 

THE DETECTIVE

DI Hillary Greene

An attractive woman in her forties, Hillary Greene is a police officer of many years’ experience, and came up through the ranks. Consequently, she knows how the system works, and is fiercely loyal to the force without being blinkered to its faults. Popular with the rank and file for her no-nonsense attitude and competence.

 

PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A REVISED EDITION OF A BOOK FIRST PUBLISHED AS “A NARROW POINT OF VIEW.”

Faith Martin has been writing for over 25 years, in four genres and under four different pen names. She was born in Oxford and sets most of her crime novels within sight of the city of dreaming spires. A real nature lover and afficionado of the countryside, descriptions of wildlife and native flora often find their way into her manuscripts. Right now, JOFFE BOOKS are re-issuing the DI Hillary Greene novels in new updated editions! The first 10 books in the series are available now.

Her romance novels, written under the name of Maxine Barry, are now available from Corazon Books. IMPOSTERS In PARADISE, and HEART OF FIRE are both out, and others will very quickly become available in the future.

Her first foray into writing ‘spooky’ crime, (and written under the pen name of Jessie Daniels) comes out in November 2017. THE LAVENDER LADY CASEFILE is published by Robert Hale, an imprint of Crowood Press.

As Joyce Cato, she writes more classically-inspired ‘proper’ whodunits. So if you like an amateur sleuth, plenty of clues and red herrings, plus a baffling murder mystery to solve, these are the books for you.

MY REVIEW

I loved this story.

The pure power and strength of Ivan is great. He doesn’t have to be aggressive for you to see the power and strength, but it radiates off of him. He’s a lethal man and will do whatever he needs to do to keep those he loves and cares about safe.

Dahlia is a woman who follows her own path and is a successful young woman. She has had tragedy in her life, but she has come out of it stronger and independent. She has made a good life and owns her own tattoo shop. She’s a great artist and her tattoos are more than just for those who want art on their bodies. Her art helps people in so many ways and her work has become popular. 

Ivan met Dahlia when they were young, but circumstances beyond their control made them both go their own ways. This was only so that they could save themselves as well as each other. They were the children of enemies. Dahlia is the daughter of a cop, and Ivan is the nephew of a Russian Mafia Boss. Their lives are too different to be able to make things work, so they go their own way and lead their lives for ten years. However, neither one has forgotten the other.

Publication Date: February 25, 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Erotic, MC, Romantic Suspense

AVAILABLE NOW!

SYNOPSIS:

Linc

A man who can’t visualize his future will always revert to his past.
To where he came from and all the ways he failed.
The murder and mayhem that changed his life and darkened his soul.
The legacy of who he is will burn through his veins and ominously guide him to hell.
A place where he pays not only for his sins but the sins of his father as well.
A hustler by nature, a loner by choice, I am the spawn of Satan.
I am Lincoln Brandt and I am the son of Cain.

Kelly

Reckless and rebellious, I’ve spent most of my life running away from one mistake only to chase another.
At the end of my rope with nowhere left to turn, I’m about to make the biggest one of all.
Face to face with the bastard who broke me, I lay it all on the line for him.
My heart and my life.
Heaven is overrated and the ride to Hell doesn’t have to be lonely.
The stakes are high.
The risk great.
It’s do or die.
Together we’ll ride.
Forever we’ll burn.

AUTHOR BIO

USA Today and International Bestselling Author in Dark Romance
We are all attracted to the forbidden. Addicted to the rush we get from reading something naughty…something kinky. We love to lose ourselves in the fantasy. The powerful lord who sweeps the lady away to his remote estate to ravish her. The cowboy who takes the sassy city girl over his knee to teach her a lesson. The devilishly charming pirate who seduces his beautiful captive. I write those dark fantasies.
