#bookblogger #BookBuzz of the week – Dangerous Crossing: Rachel Rhys

Once again I’ve had my nose to the ground, so to speak, in the world of book blogging to sniff out a book that is causing more than a bit of a buzz from other book bloggers.

I haven’t had to do very much in the way of research or sniffing out because so many bloggers, with one or two exceptions, absolutely loved the book and rated it highly in their reviews.

Once again, as was the case with The Roanoke Girls, that was featured as a previous bloggers buzz book of the week, I haven’t bally well read this one either, nor do I have a copy tempting me on my TBR pile! Something I need to rectify very soon because I love the sound of it.

Here’s a list of some other book bloggers with more foresight than me who have read the book and shared their thoughts with us.

Dangerous Crossing was also the Gransnet Book Club choice for April.

  1. Interestingly, it doesn’t have such great reviews on Amazon. I mean, there are some fabulous ones, but not as many as I expected for a book so highly acclaimed, and an average of 4*. I think I’d buy it for the cover alone, though!!!!

    I’ve added The Roanoke Girls to my list after all the great reviews I’ve read, but I think I’ll put this in the ‘maybe’ column 🙂

    1. Yes, early days though and I think with it being newly published, a number of book bloggers hadn’t had a chance to post reviews on Amazon. It’s happened to me with review copies and posting feedback on blog, Goodreads and Net Galley, but unable to post on Amazon until publication day and you just forget. Two of the bloggers listed above weren’t overly keen, so maybe a by of a marmite book.
