What the Bloggers and Readers think:

Black Books Blog

This is a brilliant and engaging book as we learn about them both and what their talents can allow them to do.  It is a rather short story but contains so much in it that you don’t really notice, and ends on a cliff-hanger so I can’t wait for the next one in the series. here


Joanna Larum’s Reviews

This book grabbed my interest on the first page and didn’t let go all the way through. It doesn’t seem to fit into any particular genre and, in fact, hovers over a number of genres, making for an extremely interesting read.  Read more here


The Bookworm Drinketh

I enjoyed the premise of genetically altered children hiding their powers to be let out of “the Nursery” to have “normal” lives and finding each other out in the world, but it was a little rushed. I wish the book had been longer to allow for the relationship between Belinda and William to grow in a more organic fashion.   Read more here


Donna’s Book Blog

This the first book that I have read by this author and I thoroughly enjoyed it, I will definitely be looking to read the rest of the books in this series!  Read more here


Kirsty Through the Looking Glass

These initial pages filled me with hope for the rest of the books – and what I’ve managed to read so far has not disappointed. There is no question that Deryn is a skilled writer as the books are well written yet easy to read, some of my biggest fears when it comes to e-books!  Read more here


Mind Garbage

Just the prologue had me intrigued, in fact I’d go as far as to say that the 7 year old versions of the characters actually made me preemptively love their older counterparts, and that was before I even started the chapter one.  Read more here

I must admit that I took to the main characters in the first book from the start.  Belinda is a young woman, who has been genetically altered.  At the age of 7, Belinda was put up for adoption because she hadn’t shown any ‘special talents’.  She was adopted by a lovely sounding couple.  When we meet her in ‘Catching Love When It Falls’, her father has sadly died and she is closer than ever to her Mam.   Read more here

For three generations the genetically altered Corban family have hid their talents from the Defence Department to avoid conscription.

Genetically altered at conception, William and Belinda begin this saga and pass their genetic cocktail to their children. The mixture of talents each character develops can at times be a blessing and, at other times a curse, preventing them from giving into their heart’s desires. Intelligent, multi-talented, yet pretending to be boringly normal these characters continue to live their lives under the radar.

What the readers are saying:

Joanna Larum’s Reviews

The action rushes on until we are given all the answers at the end. (I won’t spoil it!)
Stewart Giles books are always a pleasure to read with so many ins and outs and possible perpetrators. The reader is kept on the edge of his/her seat and, I find, ignores everything in order to reach the end of the story. I would highly recommend this book to all lovers of police procedural and also those with a love of the English countryside. It’s definitely 5 stars from me!  Read more here


Beth in a Box

I enjoyed The Backpacker; I found it fast-paced, energetic with just enough, um, fluff…. Sorry Stewart, I can’t think of a better word.

I enjoyed the waiting until the very end for the climax, although I had guessed correctly by about 90% who the murderer was. I liked the fact that a step forward seemed to take the team back two steps at some points.  Read more here


Turn the Page

The book is funny as well as having a fantastic storyline, that keeps you reading til the end.  Although this is third in the series you could quite easily read it alone (and then the others after)  Highly recommend this read to everyone.  Read more here


Ginger Book Geek

The author clearly cares about the characters in this book and this shines through in his writing.  There were certain characters that I couldn’t help but take to and there were certain characters that made me want to punch them on the nose end.  When I felt that my ‘friends’, those characters that I had taken to, were under attack I so wanted to jump inside the pages of the book to defend them.  Read more here


Linda Strong Book Reviews

There are plenty of suspects to follow in this well written crime fiction. The girl’s boyfriend who doesn’t seem too upset … the brother she hasn’t spoken to in years … members of the farm where she was found … or was this a random killing?  Read more here


On the Shelf Reviews

Sometimes I love diving back into a series with familiar characters that I am already know and enjoy. The book isn’t that long but there’s plenty packed into it! With the fast pace I absolutely flew through it, I could not stop turning those pages!  Read more here


Donna’s Book Blog

The plot is great, I loved the pace and the characters are spot on – I love a strong female lead and you certainly get on in this book!  The interaction between Harriet and her team was completely on point and I loved it.  Plenty of twists to keep you hooked right from the start through to the books brilliant ending – excellent!  Read more here


Daisy White’s Wicked Words

The pace and tension, plus the great atmospheric descriptions pull the whole thing together. The premise was good one, and I stayed up late to find out what happened. Harriet Taylor is a likeable detective, with a few edges that work well with the whole plot.  Read more here

Debbie Hipster

What a book, and strong female lead. I was hooked from the first chapter. Set in rural Cornwall, a place I can easily identify with, and see while I read. Switching from the past and present had me guessing how the stories linked and intertwined with one another. The characters were every one you know and can relate too, we’ve all met these people in our lives, which helps connect the reader to the story, and you forget it’s fiction.  Read more here


Black Books Blog

The story flowed really well throughout and I was left guessing and second guessing myself whilst reading to try and figure out the link and who the murderer was before the big reveal.  When the big reveal did arrive I was shocked by the answers but really liked the way the story ended.  I also really hope this isn’t the last we have seen of Harriet and her team.  Read more here


The Quiet Geordie

The plot centres around 2 dead bodies, one from the present and one from the past. Harriet seems to be the only one concerned with discovering what happened to both bodies. Everyone else seems uninterested in the older case.  Read more here

The Backpacker (DC Harriet Taylor #3) by Stewart Giles

Available from AMAZON

www.stewartgiles.com

From #1 best-selling author: Stewart Giles comes a new detective story set on the Cornish coast. Where the pretty villages and towns hold some very dark secrets.

WHAT IS THE SECRET AT LANDELL’S FARM?

A girl’s body is found hidden in a remote spot of a Cornish Farm. The same farm that a young girl ran towards, to escape her pursuer, many years before. Detective Harriet Taylor has to abandon her day out to investigate.
As Littlemore and the forensics team get to work they uncover another mystery hidden among the rocks.
Who would kill a young backpacker who hurt nobody? Is there a link between this and a mystery from many years ago?
As Harriet and the team get to work they find more questions than answers. What secrets is the sleepy Cornish village hiding?

This is a fast-paced page-turner that has so many twists and turns it keeps the reader guessing right up to the shocking end.

If you like Police Procedurals, then this is a series you won’t want to miss.

THE SETTING
Trotterdown and the surrounding villages is a fictional village in Cornwall. It is typical of Cornish villages with remote farms and sleepy Cornish stone cottages. However, the area is steeped in history and the residents of the quaint cottages have their share of myths and secrets making it the ideal setting for this series.

THE DETECTIVE
DC Harriet Taylor had only been married for 2 years when her philandering husband was killed in a car crash. It is common knowledge around the station that the woman who died next to him was his latest lover. Harriet transferred to Trotterdown to escape the gossip and sympathetic looks. She is now finding her way around Cornwall and getting to know the other members of the team.
