Today I am super excited to share my review for A Womb With A View by Mark Tilbury on blog tour……Which is out now!
Private investigator, Bob Blundell, is asked to undertake a seemingly routine surveillance operation at Featherstone Manor. Claudia Pennington believes her husband, Eugene, is having an affair, and she wants Bob to catch him in the act while she’s away in Africa.
But Eugene is not the only one up to no good. With his psychopathic nephew, Reuben, running amok in his own warped fantasy world, Chef’s heavily pregnant wife, Wassana, displaying episodes of feral behaviour and the baby appearing to talk inside her womb, and Eugene’s sister, Nancy, resentful of her brother because he inherited the manor, Bob finds much more than infidelity lying behind the drab stone walls of Featherstone Manor.
A Womb with a View is a chaotic, comic tale, underpinned by revenge, greed, and betrayal.
Twisted Tilbury is finally back with something rather different to what we are used to. This book is has mad has a box of frogs! Nothing at all like the Tilbury I am used to. This book is unique….starting with the title!
In a strange kind of way this story reminded me of the TV series Fawlty Towers and The Adams family. Everyone is barking mad and hilarious when we meet a cast of characters who all bring there own strange quirky qualites to this story.
I have to say that although this is a story about greed and jealousy. It is filled with humour. I found it funny as fook! Like all of Tilbury’s books it is an engaging page turner and I loved that it took me away from my normal crime genre. So I can imagine this was a joy to write and proves that Mark is an author that can write anything that is utterly entertaining.
And there I was thinking OMG it’s not a thriller when I first heard about Womb With A View. I bet you guys are thinking the same thing?! Believe me you are going to love this book. Tilbury has a wicked sense of humour. I can see this being a series. It is bloody brilliant! If you’re looking for something a little bit different, that’s witty this is the book for you.
Massive thank you to the author for an advanced readers copy. All thoughts are my own and not biased in anyway.
Mark lives in a small village in the lovely county of Cumbria, although his books are set in Oxfordshire where he was born and raised.
He’s always had a keen interest in writing and after being widowed and raising his two daughters, Mark finally took the plunge and began self-publishing. Mark’s writing has earned him the name #TwistedTilbury due to the dark and twisted nature of his books. He’s published 12 books to date, and his 13th, A Womb With A View, will be published 19th Jan 2023
When he’s not writing, Mark can be found playing guitar, reading and walking.
