Synopsis: The Cumbria Major Crimes team is under immense pressure to get results. DCI Harry Evans and his subordinates, DS Neil Chisholm, DC Lauren Phillips and DC Amir Bhaki must juggle cases while tragedy stalks them. Up in Glasgow, DI John Campbell is preparing to replace Evans, whose renegade ways have brought 
enforced retirement. Together they must investigate a man killed in his own home, a vigilante group chasing a suspected paedophile, a river dammed for no obvious reason and a woman whose cries of ‘wolf’ turn to ‘rape’. Meanwhile DC Phillips goes undercover off the books.

What to do.......?

Well afternoon all. hope you are all good. I have been having a bit of a think and would love to know what some of you think abut my current dilemma. For those that maybe don't know me or aren't aware I am not a woman that does things by halves. In addition to a full time day job, I run my own business as well as running the Book Blog's. 

I actually run two blogs, this one (featuring Crime, Thriller and Mystery) as well as Best Books to Read (more female literature etc). My problem is that I am finding it difficult to keep splitting the work with the blogs. What I would liek to do ideally is just blog in one place. At the moment I think my split between book genres would be Crime 80%/Other Genre 20%. My issue is that of I were to start posting non-crime related book posts here would it bother people? It may also confuse people because clearly (as my blog name suggests) this is meant to be a place for Crime, Thrillers and Mystery's. Also, I have been running the blog a while and to be honest everybody knows me through FB and Twitter as Best Crime Books, so I'm reluctant to change this.

In the past I did actually shut down Best Books To Read,and then got so any emails I re-opened it even though the Blog Content is infrequent (compared to this one). I really am after some opinions or thoughts on this from people that regularly read my Blog. 

Look Forward to hearing from you all

    Synopsis: Something happened to Claire and Jo in Black Wood: something that left Claire paralysed and Jo with deep mental scars. But with Claire suffering memory loss and no evidence to be found, nobody believes Jo's story. Twenty-three years later, a familiar face walks into the bookshop where Jo works, dredging up painful memories and rekindling her desire for vengeance. And at the same time, Sergeant Davie Gray is investigating a balaclava-clad man who is attacking women on a disused railway, shocking the sleepy village of Banktoun. But what is the connection between Jo's visitor and the masked man? To catch the assailant, and to give Jo her long-awaited justice, Gray must unravel a tangled web of past secrets, broken friendship and tainted love. But can he crack the case before Jo finds herself with blood on her hands?
