I was born in Barcelona and have lived in the UK for many years now. I'm a writer, translator (English-Spanish and vice-versa) and I'm a medical doctor and worked in Forensic Psychiatry many years. I also have a BA and a PhD in American Literature and Film, and a Masters in Criminology. I've always loved books and apart from writing them I review them often. I write a bit of everything, check my books for more information and my about page for links. My blog is bilingual, English and Spanish.

  1. An interesting diversion for Minette Walters. I have read ‘The Sculptress’ and ‘The Scold’s Bridle’, which were both very good. Her switch to historical subjects might be worth investigating.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. It’s a good story, for sure, although I don’t know how many books are planned (and it would have been useful to have known it was going to be more than one book). I am curious about her crime fiction. Have a great week.

    Wow, now you got me fascinated, Another bookmark! 🙂

    1. Thanks, Debby. It is a good story, although I wasn’t expecting to have to read more books to get to the end of the story. Have a great week.

        Happy week to you to Olga. <3

  3. Hi Olga. It does sound fascinating. The specter of plagues has always been a chilling element in historic fiction for me. Good to know about the changing point of view — and that it works. Thanks for another mindful review. Hugs!

    1. Thank you, Teagan. Yes, I guess even successful authors in a genre feel tempted to try other things. It is a good read, for sure. Enjoy your day!

  4. I love Minette Walters’ crime thrillers. She’s been a favourite of mine since the 90s. This novel sounds like a u- turn in her writing style. Good for her! Thanks for letting me know about it. I’ll definitely check it out:)

    1. Thanks, Luccia. I’m on a mission to check out some very well-known authors that have escaped me so far. I know I should read one of her thrillers and I’m sure I will, but now I’m invested in this series.
      Have a great weekend.
