šŸ“•The Thursday Murder Club ReviewšŸ¦Š

The Thursday Murder Club By Richard Osman
Richard Osmanā€™s bestselling debut novel is an absolute joy to read from start to finish, and the ideal companion for the chilly days and nights still ahead of us. Set in a retirement village in Kent, we are introduced to Elizabeth, Ibrahim, Ron and Joyce – an unlikely group of friends who meet weekly to discuss and attempt to solve cold cases. Their meetings have remained purely in the hypothetical realm until a murder takes place in the village, and the friends spring into action to aid and often surpass the police in their enquiries. Osmanā€™s customary wit soars through the novel, with his brilliant characterisation and compelling plot twists keeping the reader guessing until the very end. Hilarious, clever and often very touching, The Thursday Murder Club proves Osman to be a wonderful new voice in crime fiction.

How Much of These Hills is Gold Book Review

How Much of These Hills is Gold By C Pam Zhang
“What makes a home a home?” This question runs through the core of C Pam Zhang’s Booker-nominated novel, set on the sun-bleached planes of the American West following the Gold Rush. The answer is desperately sought by siblings Lucy and Sam, whose Chinese heritage makes them outcasts from the society into which they were born. They travel through the unforgiving wilderness of America with their recently-deceased father’s body on their backs, in the hope that burying him will find them roots in lands which have shunned them for so long. In devastating prose Zhang meditates upon ideas of identity and belonging, charting the journey of two children trying to find their place in a hostile world. This epic adventure tale asks whether home is something we find in ourselves, in others, or in the very earth which we inhabit.

Raynor Winn Event 9th December at 7pm

Image may contain: text that says "RAYNOR WINN Bestselling ng author of THE SALT PATH THE WILD SILENCE CORNWALL & DEVON INDIE BOOKSHOP EVENT #2"
Free tickets for this on-line event will be sent by Zoom link to all customers who purchase a copy of the book from Book Stop

Join Colin Midson as he talks to award-winning author Raynor Winn about her latest book, The Wild Silence. This is the second in a new series of regular online events held in collaboration with Cornwall and Devon independent bookshops.

In The Wild Silence, Raynor picks up the story where the Salt Path left off. As she and her husband return to life within four walls, the sense of home is illusive and returning to normality is proving difficult – until an incredible gesture by someone who reads their story changes everything.

Along the way, Raynor and Moth learn more about the land that envelopes them, find friends both new and old, and, of course, embark on another windswept adventure when the opportunity arises.

The Wild Silence is a luminous story of hope triumphing over despair, of the human spirit’s instinctive connection to nature, and of lifelong love prevailing over everything.
