New Reviews and New Competitions (no kidding)

Firstly, April's competitions have been uploaded. All four competitions are open world-wide:

Win one of three copies of 'Strangers' by Carla Banks

Win one of five copies of 'Relentless' by Simon Kernick

Win a copy of 'Go to Helena Handbasket' by Donna Moore

Win one of three copies of 'What Was Lost' by Catherine O'Flynn

(The winners of March's competitions will be announced tomorrow.)

This week's new reviews are linked to the competitions. Carla Banks' latest book 'Strangers' is one of this month's prizes and Terry Halligan has just reviewed her previous title, 'The Forest of Souls' which left him keen to read more.

Last month's prize, 'Haggard Hawk' by Marcus Barr has been reviewed by Geoff Jones and Petrona's Maxine Clarke. One of them liked it more than the other, but I'm not telling which :-).

Finally, Mike Ripley's March round-up reviews another of last month's prizes, 'Cross' by Ken Bruen as well as 'The Death of Dalziel' by Reginald Hill and 'The Accidental American' by Alex Carr (Jenny Siler).

Other Updates:

The 'Authors' (537 sites) page has been updated.

The 'News' page has been updated.

Thanks for posting the review, Karen. I like Geoff's rather different take on Haggard Hawk. I thought when I was reading it that maybe it is more of a "boy's book" than a "girls' " one?
