THE THRILLING SEQUEL TO THE BESTSELLING BLUE GOLD

In the aftermath of a world war for water, geopolitical tensions remain high and terrorism is a daily fact of life in the 2030s. But a mining base on the moon offers a rare example of international co-operation and a possible solution to the world’s energy problems. Yet not everyone on Earth is keen for this endeavour to succeed…
Sim Atkins and his wife are desperate to start a family. But a shocking message from the moon base tells Sim that he is already a father and that his son’s life is in danger. The mining station is full of suspects and, worse, the woman who fathered his child. Can Sim rescue his son and save his marriage?
Rose Gold is the sequel to Blue Gold, but can be read as a stand-alone novel. It draws on influences as diverse as Arthur C Clarke’s A Fall of Moondust, the film Moon and Agatha Christie’s murder mysteries.

⦁ Climate thrillers very ‘on trend’ – ‘climfic’
⦁ David is a Faber Academy graduate
⦁ ‘A thriller with substance that grabs you from the start!’

review

this is the first book by David i’ve read and i got confused at the beginning as i found out this was book 2 in a series but i managed to get what was going on by chapter 3, the cover is excellent and colourful.
the story was well written and very gripping and the story was well thought up and it suited the characters well.

sim atkins is the main character in the book so i got to know him well, sim received a shocking message that his son that he didnt know existed is in danger and needs his help will he be able to rescue in time before it was to late and will he be able to save his marriage aswell…..

Freda brightwell is such an amazing character in the story shes strong and very determined aswell, she is back in action when she goes out to help rescue gopal and rablen when there mission goes wrong will she be able to help them all in time…
i gave this a 5 star loved all the story and character and i cant wait to read book one and if there going to be a book 3 i will be happy to purchase it.

Has somebody discovered her secret – why she had to leave Scotland more than ten years ago?
What is her connection to Marie, a lonely schoolgirl in a Yorkshire seaside town, and Lucy, a student at a Scottish university?
A story of the shadows of the past, the uncertainties of the present and how you can never really know anybody.

review

this is Alison’s second book, a fractured winter is brillantly written and deserves the 5 stars and i loved the cover to this book. Alison’s writing is superb and it has you gripped and hooked from the beginning its a right page turner,

Olivia and her family live near lake Zug in Switzerland, she married to christian and they have 2 kids together and Julian is christian’s stepson,christian also works as a teacher at Julian’s school, Julian starts working part time and Olivia and Julian are unsure about who this person is until Olivia meets the person………

Olivia as a past that she thought she had escaped from, she as secrets she doesn’t want anyone finding out the reason why she moved out of Scotland 11 years ago.
in parts of the book it goes back to her past to tell you about what happened and gives you more of an idea of what what her secret is………..

review

the story was abit slow at the beginning but as i got to chapter 4 it started to pick up on what was happening, loved the story when it started to make sense to me as i was a bit confused so i think that is why it was a slow starter for me.
loved how all the characters started to come together and i loved how each chapter was telling each characters story

IS YOUR GIRLFRIEND PREGNANT?

How ready are you for that?

How would you deal with becoming a parent before
you’ve left school?

One thing’s for sure, you can’t unmake babies. A fact that’s borne in on Peter Knight and Samantha Smithson, sixth formers at the South East Comprehensive in Deptford, living at a time when many parents are still of the old
school and pregnancy outside marriage carries a stigma.
Having to face their parents, their school friends, teachers and gossip is only
the beginning. Pete’s plans for university are scotched as he must seek
work and accommodation suitable for a young family. And all
the time he still wants to have fun, with ‘friends’ quite
happy to tempt him to do it.

As for Samantha, abortion is no easy option. Yet as her health and
her faith in Peter goes up and down, she may have
to think the unthinkable.
