I’m Claire and I’m a book addict.  I’ve loved reading for as long as I can remember.  I’ve been properly blogging since the beginning of February 2018 and before that I was guest reviewer on the fantastic Crimebookjunkie Book Blog. I live just outside Leeds with my two sons and hubby.  I work in the rather enthralling world of pensions and to calm myself down from all that excitement, I spend my evenings reading crime fiction with the odd bit of something else thrown in for good measure.
