Author: Laura Shepherd-Robinson Genre: , , ,

Thank you to the publishers for this review copy, I was lucky enough to secure a beautiful blue proof (which I rather prefer to the published red cover – sorry).
The subject matter in the book is really interesting and you can’t help but get drawn into the book until the very last page.
I have heard nothing but praise for this book so I was very keen to read it and join in the discussions.
But for me, it was also quite easy to put down and get distracted with something else, I think maybe the pace of the story was slightly slower than I had expected?
I would still very happily recommend it on to others, great story line and characters.
Will certainly want to read what Laura writes next.

    Set in Deptford and London in the 1780’s Blood & Sugar is a tale about the sugar and slave trade. Captain Harry Corsham travels to Deptford in search of an old friend, and as the book unravels, the outcome is truly shocking.
    I read this book over a weekend.I found that when i was unable to read it, my thoughts kept returning to what would happen next and what would become of Harry. I often get lost in books, but when i find my thoughts returning to a book time and time again, i know i’m firmly in it’s grasp.
    I thoroughly recommend this book, and award it 5* I’ll have to pick my next read very carefully as it has a lot to live up to!

    Only January but this is my favourite crime book of the year so far. Loved the historical background and learned a lot. The characters were well done and the plot very complex with many strands coming together towards the end. Very interesting and relevant historical notes towards the end too.
