A Heart in the Right Place by Heide Goody and Iain Grant

As soon as the blog tour was announced for this book, I knew that I had to be part of it. One thing I love about these authors is that I will always get a laugh reading their work.

Nick always thinks he is the failure out of the 2 sons. Planning a special trip for his terminally ill father, he orders a special gift for his dad’s birthday. Finn is a killer for hire, paid to do the dirty work for corporate bodies, she has been paid to get a heart. When their paths cross, what follows is a comedy of errors.

Nick and his dad Tony were 2 great characters. Nick a Generation Y, was not practical, thought outside the box and things tended to go wrong, Tony was the complete opposite, a typical dad, hardworking and practical. At the start of the book, their relationship was disjointed as Nick was trying too hard, but as disaster, after disaster followed, they started to get closer. Some of my favourite scenes happened when their lives were in danger and they were discussing films and survival techniques.

The description of Finn as the terminator was spot on, a no-nonsense woman who got the job done regardless of how bloody it got and who had a fascination of cataloguing the people she met.

Throughout the book, everyday items were put to unusual uses and I never knew how versatile Duct tape was. The imagination of the authors is incredible and I always wonder where they get their ideas from. Who else would come up with Finn abseiling down using intestines attached to the man she just killed. 

This book had it all, action, horror and comedy all rolled into one fast-paced thriller. Whilst the story is bloody and gory, you don’t notice, as you are giggling about the situation that caused the mess. This was a quick loveable read and if it was not for real life I would have read it in one sitting. Whilst this is a standalone story, I would love to see Nick and Tony tackle other chaotic adventures.

Cover Reveal

Snowflake by Heidi Goody and Iain Grant

 The book will be published on 20th July and the blurb is below:

“Lori Belkin has been dumped. By her parents.
They moved out while she was away on holiday, and now, at the tender age of twenty-five, she’s been cruelly forced to stand on her own two feet.
While she’s getting to grips with basic adulting, Lori magically brings to life the super-sexy man she created from celebrity photos as a teenager.
Lori learns very quickly that having your ideal man is not as satisfying as it ought to be and that being an adult is far harder than it looks.
Snowflake is a story about prehistoric pets, delinquent donkeys and becoming the person you want to be, not the person everyone else expects you to be”

Some witches are good, others are bad, but if you want to be a great witch then take yourself of to the country and enrol on a 3 week course. That’s what Dee Finch, Caroline Black ,Sharon Jaye “Shazam” Madison, Norma Looney, Sabrina Holder-Eckford and Jenny Knott did. Coming along for the ride was Jizzimus Jenny’s imp and Kay a young girl who Jenny rescued. What started out as a bit of a farce, soon escalated into a battle of good v evil.
As witches they all lived secretive lives and it took a while for the group to click. Throughout the story you get to learn about each one in detail and with their individual skills and quirkiness, you will have a favourite character.
This story was fast flowing as there was always something going on. Whether it was a spell going completely wrong or the witches fighting for the power of good, making this a page turner. Throughout this book there is a lot of comedy and you will find yourself laughing out load, so it may be advisable to read this in the privacy of your own home. The main culprit for these scenes were Jizzimus, a very naughty imp that was owned by Jenny. Some of the things that he got up was hysterical and I kept wondering how Jenny could cope with his antics.
Whilst I own other works by these authors, I have not got round to reading the yet, but I loved this book so much that I am moving them up my TBR pile. A funny fantasy book that will brighten up your day.
