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.

    Great review as always Olga. I do enjoy Terry’s books and have Tipping Point on my Kindle, so thanks for mentioning to read them in order. So glad I have book 1! 🙂 x

    1. Thanks, Debby. It’s definitely a must-read series and I’m sure you’ll enjoy it. I look forward to hearing what you think about it when you get to it!

        Thanks Olga 🙂

        1. Enjoy the rest of the week, Debby! (I am going to be visiting a friend for a few days so might not be around as much as usual, although one never knows!)

    A lovely review of Terry’s book, Olga. I like your discussion around the characters in this review.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. The author has a knack for creating compelling characters and they do enhance the intrigue of the story and the engagement of the readers. Have a great day!

    1. Thanks, Sally. I’ve read your reviews as well. They were a good reminder to read the last one!

  3. I remember how much you enjoyed the others, Olga. Good review about writing style and character development. I hope that Terry does just as will with this latest one.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. I’m sure she will. Have a great week! (I’m hopeful we’ll see this turn into a series).

  4. Excellent review of a wonderful book, Olga.

    1. Thanks, Mary. It is a great series. ♥

  5. Great review, Olga, as usual. I really must catch up with this series!

    1. Thanks, Noelle. I had quite a few of Terry’s books on my list but was lucky enough to catch this series from the very beginning. It’s well-worth reading, Noelle. And I hope to catch up with your own books soon. 🙂

    Hi Olga, I published Slush Pile Inspector on Amazon & Kindle (free on Kindle 19-23 June 2018 as a fictional memoir of a literary agent’s career that delves into politics of managing a generic candidate’s run for The White House). The novel was published well before the nominating conventions and the genre is humor & entertainment. Also, a popular novella regarding a Spanish pirate is entitled, Last Pirate at Fort Matanzas — I would be interested in your reactions to these books. Best regards, Charles Frankhauser

  7. This is a fantastic series – love the review, Olga!

    1. You’re absolutely right, Teri. Good luck with your new book!

  8. The series sounds marvelous. Great review, Olga!! <3

    1. Thanks, Colleen. It is, Colleen. I think you’d like it as well.

  9. Excellent review, Olga! This reads like a fascinating series. I think it’s so clever that Terry put a link with a brief summary of the first two books in the beginning of this one. Brilliant idea. Thank you, my friend! 😀 xx

    1. Thanks, Vashti. That’s the same I thought. It hadn’t passed that much time since I had read the other two books, but as I read so many books, it’s not easy to keep all the details straight in one’s head, so I found it very useful. As a writer, I also took note of the idea. Have a great week!

  10. Hi Olga. I agree that each volume in a series needs to include some kind of reminder for what happened in the other books. I enjoyed your take on the character development.
    Have a wonderful Wednesday. Hugs on the wing!

    1. Thanks, Teagan! I’m very intrigued about the wing in your serial… (I’ve arrived in France. I’ll sneak in to say hello when I have a chance) 🙂

      1. I was just wondering about your holiday, so I’m glad you mentioned it here.
        Yes, there will be more about that (those — from Lulu’s vantage-point she could only see one) multicolored wings! LOL. Now my frozen dinner awaits.
        Have a wonderful time with your friends in France. Safe journeys and more hugs!

        1. Thanks, Teagan. Unfortunately, my husband’s friend is in hospital, and they have to operate him again, so it’s not been the holiday we have planned, but it’s good to be here. I’m very intrigued and look forward to more of Lulu… Have a great weekend. Love to Crystal.

          1. I’m sorry that he got worse. Best to Iman and her husband. Hugs to you all.

          2. Thanks, Teagan. He hasn’t been very lucky recently, but let’s hope things improve very soon. Big hugs and thanks.
