This is still if not more popular than the day they opened this The Harbour Arm in Folkestone. Live music every weekend now gets the crowds down there with many food establishments to choose from.

The views of Sunny Sands and The White cliffs are amazing. That surf walking looks so easy!

Saturday was the Most Wuthering Heights Day and we certainly pulled out all the stops for this as the Harbour Arm was packed! Photos by the lovely Patricia of the red invasion on the arm.

Many places to eat now also a huge screen TV to watch films or sporting events.

A super place to spend your weekend as there is always something going on.

To say that this is a quiet seaside town, you would be very wrong as there appears to always be something going on. Who can remember what shows used to be put on in one of these tents?

Punch and Judy, I wonder what the children thought of that? It certainly made me remember sitting on the sand or grass watching them.

The vintage fete looked like a good success up on The Leas, lots of old cars to make you remember times gone by. Swing music was being played with so many people singing or swaying along to it.

There was such a lovely atmoshere here on Saturday and nice to just wander about and have a sit down. The bandstand had live music with many people dancing.IMG_0296.jpg

Further down The Leas by The Leas Cliff Hall there was more music with many people dressed up, dancing, it was really good to sit and watch.

A brilliant, relaxing day in Folkestone.

Great pictures of the cars from Patricia, thank you x

Killing Sin (1)

I am so pleased to be on this blog tour, this book is one of the best ever. It has everything and will make you keep turning the pages until the end!

KH Irvine grew up in Scotland and now lives near London. The book was her 50th birthday gift to herself, believing you are never too old to try something new. Her work has taken her to board rooms, universities and governments all over the world and has included up close and personal access to special forces. A Killing Sin is her first book. The second follows on a few years later as Britain moves to civil unrest with the rise of the far right as the personal and political become intertwined.

Would you surrender your secrets to save a life?

London. It could be tomorrow. Amala Hackeem, lapsed Muslim tech entrepreneur and controversial comedian, dons a burqa and heads to the women’s group at the Tower Hamlets sharia community. What is she doing there?

Ella Russell, a struggling journalist leaves home in pursuit of the story of her life. Desperate for the truth, she is about to learn the true cost of the war on terror.

Millie Stephenson, a university professor and expert in radicalisation arrives at Downing Street to brief the Prime Minister and home secretary. Nervous and excited she finds herself at the centre of a nation taken hostage. And then it gets personal.

Friends since university, by the end of the day the lives of all three women are changed forever. They will discover if friendship truly can survive secrets and fear.

WHAT DID I THINK?

Were do I start as this grabs you from the very first page so you cannot put it down. Thank you to LOVE BOOKS GROUP TOURS for sending me the book in return for a full review.

A KILLING SIN is the best book I have read this year and will be my top book for 2019, a very bold statement I hear you say. I just cannot see anything beating it but I have been known to be wrong so we will wait until December for the balloons and whistles.

Back to the book, not one I would have picked myself so I am pleased when I said yes to a blog tour and honest review as I read something wonderful.

For a first book, yes K.H. Irvine turned 50 and decided to write a book!

I am so pleased she did as I could not put it down. Terrorists are not a good thing to read about as always makes me think it will give people ideas. As you read this it makes you wonder how much is actually true or just made-up? I have no idea but it all reads like it is very true and factual. Sleazy government sounds real!

Emotions really come to the surface as people face a situation that you would never think could happen, I found I was either angry or upset it goes like a swing as you read. The details keep you hooked plus the shock factor through this story, how do they brain wash young people but after reading you can understand a part of that is whatever the young person is facing in their own life. Some just want to belong and feel part of something.

Friendships follow us through life with these three women knowing that nothing will ever be the same. You wonder how they will survive or will they? Terror and deep pain flow through this book, it really is an outstanding piece of work that deserves being a best seller and in everyone’s top five of this year.

Katerina Diamond is the author of the Sunday Times Best Selling Exeter based crime thriller series – starting with ‘The Teacher’ and followed by The Secret, The Angel, The Promise and Truth or Die, Katerina is currently working on her seventh novel which is a standalone.

Katerina also runs the facebook book group CRIME SUSPECT with several other crime authors.

Katerina currently lives in East Kent. Katerina was born in Weston-super-Mare and has lived in various places since including Greece, Cyprus, Derby, East London and Exeter. Katerina watches way too much TV.

Their darkest secrets won’t stay buried forever…

The butchered body of a professor is found in a private office of Exeter University. It is the first in a spate of horrific murders that shakes the city to its core.

Who would target a seemingly innocent man, and why? DS Imogen Grey and DS Adrian Miles turn to his students for answers, but their investigation turns up no leads. Someone must know more than they’re letting on…

As the body count rises, the police have to look into the past to uncover the person responsible before it’s too late.

But are they brave enough to face up to the truth?

WHAT DID I THINK:

I adore Katerina’s books and have read most of them, very quickly I must say as once you start they keep you so intrigued you just have to carry on. How many people are going to end up dead? This keeps you guessing and trying to work out what is going on. I love her style of writing as it’s shocking but it all fits together so well. Grey and Miles are brilliant, fitting together like a pair of old socks. These books are a bit different as they get right in to the dirt of the story so you can eventually fit it together. Very well written and another best seller.

There really are some great books about at the moment.

I have just got to give you a taster of this amazing book!

A Killing Sin is a female-led psychological thriller. Homeland meets Cracker or Wire in the Blood. The book is set in London in the near future. Post Brexit. Trump’s second term. But it could be tomorrow.

The story centres around three dynamic women, strong but flawed, who met at university and forged a life-long friendship. Their lives become intertwined with that of another young woman, a committed jihadist who embarks on a horrific terrorist plot spanning 12 hours that hits right in the heart of Government.

A Killing Sin forces us to consider when tolerance becomes intolerable and where security measures become racial profiling. It is a highly commercial, resonant book that is not simply a compelling and addictive read but will trigger debate.

On this day 9th July 1901www.beautifulbritain.co.ukBarbara Cartland was born in Edgbaston, Birmingham.

Barbara Cartland wrote more than 500 books during her lifetime! What an achievement I don’t think I have even got 100 books in my head. This makes her the third-best-selling fiction author of all time (estimated 1 billion copies sold). I find this really amazing.

Nearly always dressed in a shade of pink this lady was known for the many romantic books that she wrote, when you look at the photos of Barbara they scream romance to you, well they do to me.

Some books were made into movies: A Hazard of Hearts, The Lady and the Highwayman, A Ghost in Monte Carlo

What an amazing life this lady had and one that will never be forgotten. She Died: 21st May 2000 in Hertfordshire.

Well done Barbara Cartland

There are always a few fete’s on at this time of the year but I can honestly say this was the best one I have ever been too. Harbour community church is a church of the future. There are so many things going on here for all ages. You can find details of everything on their website as there is just too much for me to list.

I took Mia to the fete and she had a great time.

The one thing that made this stand out apart from it being a family fun day with music and guests all afternoon was the fact that every single thing was free. Yes, that included food and drink! The donuts were delicious! A selection of bouncy castles, lots of make and do stalls to keep the children amused. Plus, the face painting and glittery tattoos. A thoroughly great afternoon was had by all.
