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.
- The Book Review Cafe
- Crime Fiction Lover
- Swirl and Thread
- My Chestnut Reading Tree
- Cleopatra Loves Books
- Random Things Through My Letter Box
- Little Bookness Lane
- The Bookaholic Swede
Dangerous Crossing was also the Gransnet Book Club choice for April.
