Weekend Blog Hops - 13 July 2018

It's the weekend once more. That means it's time for my book blogger hopping.

Does a cluttered blog have you not returning? E.g. Too many columns, small type, too many photos, difficult to follow, etc.

Yes and no. If it was a blog I visit as part of one of these hops, I would still go there and comment. However, it would put me off visiting it at other times, and when reading blog posts in general, I do tend to stick to clean-looking, neat blogs. Often, less is more. If it's hard work to read the posts or to find the information I need, I won't go back.

"You're utter rubbish at this, you know that, right?" Casey shouted as Martin's long legs ate up the distance ahead of them, arms and shoulders bunching and rolling in graceful synchronicity.




From page 56:
Lost within his own world, Martin danced shirtless, his wings the only accessory on his torso.



My Current Read 
Fallen For You
Jules Dee

When you work with someone for years, you think you know them pretty well.
Casey Wicker and Martin Bishop are a British Secret Service team with a reputation for ignoring rules but delivering results. They’ve also built a tight friendship, with more than a spark of unspoken attraction.
While on assignment to Scotland Yard, Martin rescues Casey and exposes him to a life-changing secret. Martin is not what he seems, and now that Casey is aware of that, the knowledge most likely comes with a death sentence.
When a way to avoid the tragic ending is suggested, it may very well take more cooperation than anyone is willing to expend.

  5. I like books with good repartee between the investigators in a story; the process of working together is then so much more interesting.

    Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “THE OTHER WIFE”
