Well if I am writing this post it means that the blog tour for Nine Lives has sadly come to an end – Ray came back!! But what did we think this time?
Let us recap
21st July can only mean one thing…. the tour has kicked off
b for bookreview shares an exclusive extract, “Her wrists were red, blood red. Raw and agonisingly sore from squeezing them through the rope knot that had bound her to the rafter of the low ceiling of the outhouse.”
Jessica Belmont shares her review, “Nine Lives is a quick, clever, and compelling read. The pacing is fast, and kept me on my toes from the first page to the last. I like Ray as a main character, and since this wasn’t the first book, I’m excited to say I was still able to get to know him.”
It’s the day before the day before the weekend – 22nd July – day
Portable Magic shares her review, “The investigation is an interesting one and I found the references to poetry and the psychological significance of numbers fascinating.”
Lyndas_bookreviews (IG) shares her thoughts too, “This was definitely my favourite of the two books I have read so far. I really enjoyed it and read it in one evening. The characterisations are great and I’m already looking forward to book 3.”
Red Pillows also shares her review, “The plot is well thought out and will definitely hold your attention until the very end. Be prepared to go on a roller coaster ride as we try to find the serial killer alongside some rather fine detectives.”
Happy FRI- 23rd July – DAY, what a way to end the week,
Run Away Irish Girl as this to say, “This is a really quick, fast paced, engaging read and had such an awesome time with this little novella.”
Sharon Beyond the Books has this to say, “Kevin McManus is clearly settling into Logue now and this makes ‘Nine Lives’ even better than the first book. His characters are all so well written that I felt like I could have been with real people. I am certainly looking forward to the next book to see where he takes Ray Logue next.”
It’s a thunderstorm kind of day on 24th July, but it is storm-free here,
My Bookish Bliss is a huge fan, “The second book of the Ray Logue series, Nine Lives, is a crime reader’s dream. Kevin McManus offers an excellent follow-up to Death Rains Down. If anything, this novel is even better. I will never figure out how McManus fits so much adrenaline-filled magic in such a short volume.”
Book Addict shares her thoughts, “This is another quick, clever, engaging, and fast paced read in the Ray Logue series.”
It’s Sunday 25th July, a cooler day but here it is still twisty
The Word is Out – Alyson’s Reviews (FB) loves this series, “The little twist at the end leaves a terrific opening for another story in the future, and I am looking forward to reading book three, New Blood, very soon”
Fully Booked 2017 keeps a check on the curveballs, “As Logue, Callaghan and Harper close in on who they think is the killer, Kevin McManus bowls us a couple of googlies – or perhaps I should say, since we are in Boston, throws down some curve balls – and all is not what it seems to be.”
A gloomy start to 26th July, it must know it’s near the end of the tour!
The Magic of Wor(l)ds shares an exclusive extract, ““Does that mean anything to you?” Mulcahy asked.
“No, I have no idea what the significance of it is, I was hoping that you might know.” “It could be a line from a popular song maybe, but I’m not sure, to be honest with you. I’ll have to check it out.” “Do you think it could be linked to the murderer?””
chapter1.page1 (IG) shares her review, “A thoroughly enjoyable read; I was gripped from beginning to end. I look forward to reading more from Kevin McManus and hopefully to more books featuring Detective Logue.”
Herding Cats is a huge fan, “I couldn’t stop reading, waiting for the next development and trying to piece things together myself (which I did a terrible job of).”
27th July can only mean one thing, it’s the end of the tour 🙁
Ginger Book Geek shares this review, ” ‘Nine Lives’ isn’t a particularly long story but it is well plotted and jam packed full of drama, intrigue, shocks and twists.”
Donna’s Interviews, Reviews and Giveaways (FB) shares her thoughts, “I am really enjoying this new series and will look forward to more outings of Mr Logue. Hes a fun character.”
Book Inspector enjoyed the thrills, “I really liked the twists and suspense, and could not wait to find out who actually killed all those people.”
So what did we learn?
Everyone loves to play Detective but Ray is simply unique. Despite these being a novella, each time Kevin delivers a punch and a lot of twists! Plus there is a cry for a 3rd book…a lot of them! Plus this series is like a tub of pringles, once you start, you just can’t stop!
Well, this is a wrap indeed!
Until next time xxx
