Life in the Clouds #6: Take a Slug ® James Field.
Olive, tired of living a pauper’s life, steals a fortune from her wealthy employer. Soon after, her pious twin sister rings on her doorbell, demanding she repent and give the money back. Or else!
‘Twin Cheats’ is book number five in the ‘Life in The Clouds’ series. Each is a stand-alone story, but with a common setting. The Stables is an exclusive hamlet on London’s outskirts. If you visited, you would think you’d stepped back in time one hundred years. If you are rich and eccentric enough, they might even let you stay. Those employed there, however, are a bunch of oddballs, so best to avoid them.
Be ready, this new serialised novella starts in a few days. Rather than miss an instalment, it’s easy to follow my blog on bloglovin’. They’ll give you a friendly nudge as I release new parts.

The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
There’s a lot to like and a lot to dislike in this story. I like that it’s cosy, funny, and heart-warming. The plot, however, is a tragedy. There are two murders, and every character in the book, of which there are many, has a motif. With so many twists, turns, and red herrings throughout the narrative, it lost me in a virtual maze.
But the author commits the gravest crime: he introduces a new, guilty character right at the end of the story. Tut, tut, naughty.
