G.L. Cromarty

Room 119 High-flying trader Dean Harrison has it all – the London penthouse apartment; the fast car; the beautiful wife. But when the threads of Dean’s life start to unravel, they do so with alarming speed.

Following the advice of a frail stranger, Dean sets off for Welnetham Hall Hotel and is plunged into the mysterious world of Room 119 – a world where nothing makes sense. How does everyone in the hotel know his name? Why does he travel there on a train line that shut down over fifty years ago? And who is the sinister man in black who pursues him wherever he goes?

As he gradually pieces together the puzzle of Welnetham Hall, Dean is forced to re-evaluate his life and realises that nothing is more important to him than his wife and daughter. Desperate to get back to them, he vows he would lay down…

Editorial review
A Review of Cassandra Parker’s HARLEY’S REDEMPTION
By Edentu Oroso

When I began reading Cassandra Parker’s HARLEY’S REDEMPTION, I didn’t know what to expect in its 389 pages. I almost ascribed it as another run-of-the-mill kind of romance centred stories with their banal offering. Few pages down the line, its cadences of requited love and selfless living began to rein on my sensibilities, to the extent, I wanted to go the whole hog, read to the end and discern its hidden motifs. The more I read, the more I came to the realization that I was inadvertently taken to a school of some sort…and I learned the art of life through the selfless acts of of the main character Harlan Davis (a.k.a. Harley), who turned a new page from a past ridden with alcohol, women, drug addiction, and unbridled biking activities, to a present rid of their stifling hold.
The striking thread in this tale is Harley’s humanity: living for the common good, a product of the direct influence of his servant Garret on his personality and his religious inclination through conversion to the Mormon Church. Ardently colour blind and shorn of the gritty realities of racial prejudices, Harlan Davis stands out as a rare breed in the rippling currents of life. His stupendous wealth partly inherited and partly earned at a tender age,  business savvy and social status did not get in the way of his bowels of compassion, which touched lives boundlessly wherever he went with his streaks of largesse. Mari Forrester, his heartthrob, complements that wholesomeness with her brand of beauty, brains, patented care and love despite her middle class status. Together they are destined for higher things in human firmament.
If the need for literary piece is to steer readers’ imagination towards the ideals of goodness, then HARLEY’S REDEMPTION is considered a great success by carrying out its onerous task of informing, entertaining and educating us all in an enthralling manner.
The well-defined characters and their rich interplay of emotions also curry a good omen for the story, which is written in simple but elegant language. Cassandra Parker cleverly relives in HARLEY’S REDEMPTION, the historic past of American life via its beauteous sounds and imageries through the 1950s to the early 1970s as encapsulated in the music of Steppenwolf loved by Harlan Davis with a passion, and the revolution and novelties in the Harkey-Davidson motorcycle brand his ingenuity helped to mainstream.
If you are yet to read HARLEY’S REDEMPTION by Cassandra Parker, then you are missing out on a great signpost to a fruitful and meaningful life. I highly recommend this book as a template of what ought to be in human stead.

#BlogTour #Guestpost Wide Awake Asleep by Louise Wise

black books blog

I am very pleased to have been asked to be involved with the blog tour for Louise Wise’s new book Wide Awake Asleep.

Thank you to Rachel (@rararesources) for asking to me to be involved in the tour and to Louise (@louise_wise) for supplying the guest post.


Can you really be on the WRONG path in life?

No one knew she was driving on that stretch of road. No one saw her car leave the highway and crash into a watery ditch. No one heard the car’s windscreen smash or saw the tree branch come through to impale her to her seat. No one heard her screams.

Julie Compton’s life should have come to an end that day, but instead, that moment was the beginning of her new life as she wakes, unharmed, back in 1972 and primed to relive her traumatic childhood all over again…

Book Review – The Art of Hiding by Amanda Prowse

Cal Turner Reviews

Title: The Art of Hiding

Author: Amanda Prowse

Release Date: July 2017

Rating: 5 stars

My Review:

Another fantastic read by the amazing Amanda Prowse. As always she takes us on a rollercoaster ride of emotions, with interesting but flawed characters you very quickly come to care about.

This is a story about family, and about being resilient in the face of adversity. Nina is left facing the unthinkable and is going to have to try to rebuild the lives of herself and her children in ways she could never have imagined.

A complex story of love, loss, grief and family, ‘The Art of Hiding’ is Amanda Prowse at her very best. A perfect 5 stars.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for giving me the opportunity to read an ARC of this book.

‘The Art of Hiding’ is available to buy on http// now.
