Licensed to Thrill1: Hunt for Jack Reacher Books 1-3

Might be one for you to keep your eye out for @Cruzeroqueen1

As a fan of Lee Child’s Jack Reacher I thought I’d give them a try. Part one is a decent length book but parts two & three are not much more than short stories. Books 2 & 3 also seem to be numbered 1.1 & 1.2 ?

Should you get the opportunity to pick them up for free or very cheaply they might interest Reacher fans but I wouldn’t pay much for them. Easy poolside reading.

Extract from Goodreads synopsis:
Hunting Jack Reacher is a dangerous business, as FBI Special Agents Kim Otto and Carlos Gaspar are about to find out. Otto and Gaspar are by-the-book hunters who know when it’s necessary to break the rules, but they Don’t Know Jack. Reacher is a stone cold killer. Is he their friend or their enemy? Only the secrets hidden in Margrave, Georgia will tell them. Is Reacher a wanted man?

In 2018 Father Ray Kelly, an Irish priest, entered Britains Got Talent and came 4th. I loved the song he sang on his last appearance as did the audience. I was inspired by his rendition of Leonard Cohens song Hallelujah he sang at a wedding ceremony he was performing in 2014, it went viral and had over 72 million views on YouTube so when I found he had written a book I bought it.

It arrived this morning simply called Hallelujah memoirs of a singing priest…….

I remember that version, and thought that it was brilliant – a beautiful song, beautifully sung with real feeling.
Please let us know how you enjoy the book.

Silent Scream by Karen Rose – interesting look into the mind of a psycopath, and how one wrong act can escalate.

“Christmas At Cold Comfort Farm & Other stories” by Stella Gibbons (published 1940) . Penguin books made a special Christmas dust jacket re-issue of this for the festive season. It’s one of those books you buy for someone else (probably much older than you) as a last minute gift or find it in a charity shop as I did and mothball it till Xmas. Twee quaint tales of a Middle England long gone, syrupy nostalgia reminiscent of the Ladybird books Janet & John type families ( who I have never met in my entire life). A tad contrived, these stories nonetheless bring back the glow of Christmas of yesteryore and its simple glittery pleasures of country walks, farmsteads, Christmas trees, candles, jolly japes, rustic humour of simple country folk, holly berries, baubles and bright new pennies in an age pre-internet, pre-TV, pre-soap operas and celebrities where drama arrives with the sight of the odd car on the road. A sort of hip hip hurrah Enid Blyton for grown ups.
