I‘ve been a bit dopey the past few weeks and got out of the habit of posting my weekly recommendation for the S’n’S crowd, a small select band of authors offering snippets of top quality fiction each week, or in my case a recommendation of something I have read and enjoyed enough to want to share it. Just click on the graphic to the left to see the other contributors.
This week it’s not one but two books – old favourites of mine that have come out in actual dead tree format so I’ll take a minute to celebrate that by telling you about them.
The books are The Hot Floor by Josephine Myles and Pressure Head by J L Merrow.
The Hot Floor concerns glassblower Josh, who lives on the top floor of a crumbling Edwardian house and is regularly driven crazy by the sounds coming from the apartment below where hunky Evan and dainty Rai sound as though they are getting pretty kinky. Then, one hot night, Josh’s floor gives way dropping him into their laps.
Pressure Head is written from the POV of Tom Paretski a plumber with a sideline in assisting the police with their enquiries with his intense and sometimes painful psychic ability. When a local girl is murdered Tom finds himself having to work with hunky Phil Morrison, a PI with whom he has a very edgy past.
Both books are joyful reads, with engaging leads, memorable secondary characters and plenty of incident. They are also laugh out loud funny.
Very highly recommended and the authors are having a giveaway in celebration of the dead tree release. Just comment to this post to be in with a chance of winning.
