Book Blog Tour: She Be Damned by M.J.TJIA

Welcome to day two of the She Be Damned Book Blog Tour.  She Be Damned is the new novel from M.J.Tjia and is full of suspense and drama.

The blurb:

London, 1863: prostitutes in Waterloo area are turning up dead, their sexual organs mutilated and removed. When another girl goes missing, fears grow that the killer may have claimed their latest victim. 

The police are at a loss and so it falls to courtesan and professional detective, Heloise Chancey, to investigate. With the assistance of her trusty Chinese maid, Amah Li Leen, Heloise inches closer to the truth. But when Amah is implicated in the brutal plot, Heloise must reconsider who she can trust before the killer strikes again.

I love a good crime story and I am rather fond of a historical novel so when you put the two genres together you get a winner from me! 

I often find I can work out the ending half way through a book but this one kept me guessing right to the end. I read it in 24 hours as I couldn't wait to find out who the killer was. 

I really enjoyed the character of Heloise Chancey, a strong independent women who suffers no fools. However its Amah that's the really interesting one! I am looking forward to new mysteries from them.

If you are looking for a great read for your holidays then She Be Damned is one for your list.

She Be Damned is available now in paperback and ebook formats.

You can find M.J.Tjia on twitter @mjtjia

I'm Not Ready to Embrace Grey

I'm going grey, in fact I have going grey for quite sometime. If I stripped out the colour from hair I reckon I am a good 60 or 70% grey.

Grey hair do care

I know we are supposed to be embracing our natural self and loving our bodies etc but I am not ready to be grey. It may be fashionable but I feel I am too old to pull off the fashionable grey and too young (I'm only 37 for god sake) to pull off the graceful grey). 

There are many parts of my body I have made peace with like my stretch marks, bingo wings and hairy chin (I pluck it but don't get too close) but I a nit ready to go grey!!

I'll keep slapping on that red dye for as long as I can get away with it and then I will probably still dye it. 

Do you embrace your grey or cover it up?
