Shannon’s Law by Emma Calin

When Police officer Shannon Aguerri takes over the beat as a village constable, it is far from the quiet village life you would expect. There is plenty of crime to keep her busy, and when she meets a young lad called Ben on her beat and this introduces her to his father who happens to be an Earl, her patrol is about to get passion and two completely different worlds are about to collide with an almighty bang!

The story is quite fast paced and it had me gripped from the very beginning. I liked Shannon as a character and found her very likable and there are strong scenes of an adult nature in this book. Which are thrown into the storyline. I say that because they seem to jump out of you just when you are getting into the storyline. They are quite well written but I didn’t personally think they were necessary to the storyline. But if you are into erotica you will like these kinds of scenes and find them sensational.

Road to Rouen by Ben Hatch

Ben and wife Dinah and their two children are on the road again. Following on from their last guide book on Britain, fasten your seatbelts, this time they are off to France, on a three month road trip. To participate in all that is French tourism, from a Vegetable theme park to the Eiffel Tower, throw in a deadly donkey, a strange cult and a pair of must have speedos! And you know you are in for a good fun and entertaining read.

I really enjoyed Are We Nearly There Yet? And I was really looking forward to reading Road to Rouen and I was not disappointed, I was laughing out loud from the first few pages. It is hilarious and funny read and Ben writes in such a wonderful way that you can be laughing one minute then be moved and touched by the more personal thoughts and memories.  This is a must-read. I loved it!
