#BLOGTOUR | Sam Applewhite Series – Heide Goody & Iain Grant @rararesources @gilbster1000 #bookblogger #bookreview #amreading

Some bodies just won’t stay buried.

When a client tells Sam Applewhite she’s seen ghosts in the nearby graveyard, Sam dismisses it as the ramblings of an old woman. She’s got bigger things to worry about — Keeping on top of her job at DefCon4 Security Services isn’t easy – particularly since her manager is a cactus and no one will tell her what her job actually is.

But when the ghost-spotting client goes missing and only Sam suspects foul play, she is compelled to dig deeper.

Aided by her retired stage magician father and the owner of the most outlandish junk shop on the sea front, Sam dives into a mystery involving psychotic seals, unexploded air force munitions, DIY foot surgery and a corpse that just won’t quit.

Review:

Sealfinger is the first book in the Sam Applewhite series. It is a comedic mystery, and kept me entertained.

The best part of this novel is the characters. Depsite their almost, unreal circumstances, they feel real. I enjoy the dialog and the chaos. It kept the mood very light while also taking me on a twisty adventure.

The plot was good. I was interested to see what would happen next. I’m looking forward to the rest of the series.

There’s something very wrong at the Otterside care home.

When Sam Applewhite tries to help a friend who’s lost a beloved pet she finds that it’s just the first in a series of seemingly unconnected deaths. Is it her imagination, or do all of them somehow point back to the same residential home for seniors?

Sam’s skills are in demand elsewhere however, as she must orchestrate a safety drill with animal actors, cook dinner on an abandoned oil rig and keep an eye on those vikings who are building a longship.

When the police don’t see the pattern, it’s all down to Sam, and the closer she gets to uncovering what’s going on at Otterside, the more danger she’s in

Review:

Sam Applewhite returns in Doggerland. These books can be read as standalones, but you do miss someone the character development without reading in order.

Per the pattern of the first book, we learn the details up front and then watch Zam piece it all together, while dodging some quirky circumstances along the way.

If you enjoy comedy, mystery, quirkyness, and characters that feel real, I’d recommend checking this series out.

The aristocracy abide by a different set of rules…

…or so it seems to Sam Applewhite when her job brings her to Candlebroke Hall, the stately home. The burglary definitely wasn’t what it appeared to be, and the subsequent accidents suggest that it’s a dangerous place to spend time.

Sam is caught up in events as she tries to protect the interests of young Hilde Odinson, part of the local viking family. The Odinsons insist on doing things their own way though, with scant regard for the law. In the meantime, Sam starts to understand that while many people would kill to live at Candlebroke Hall, maybe there are others who would kill to get away from it

Review:

Authors Heide Goody & Iain Grant are talented authors. I feel they’ve created some of the most memorable characters I’ve read to date. They are hilarious and there are quite a few, ‘laugh out loud’ moments.

I do think you’ll be missing out on character development if you read these as standalone novels. It feels like meeting old friends, every time I read another book, and if you’re going to read, I’d suggest reading in order.

I very much enjoyed this series. I think Sandraker is my favorite of the three, but that’s hard to commit to. Funny and intriguing, check this out.
