On the blog: Ant & Bea tour round-up

If you follow us on Twitter (or read our newsletter, or follow us on Instagram...), you'll know that Ant & Bea have been on tour over the past two weeks! While we've just published Dead Stock, the second book in the series, we wanted to introduce more readers to Ant & Bea with book one, The Cost of Living, and celebrate the series as a whole.

If you missed our crime panel at Blackwell's Edinburgh at the start of last week, don't worry! The wonderful Kelly at LoveBooksGroup filmed some of the best bits of the evening - catch Rachel Ward talking about Ant & Bea here, Lesley Kelly setting the scene for her Health of Strangers thrillers here, and William McIntyre discussing Robbie Munro and the Best Defence series here.

For our first online stop on the Ant & Bea tour, we hopped over to Instagram, where Lois shared her fantastic review of The Cost of Living. We always love hearing from readers who can't wait to get their hands on the next book in the series!

Stop three took us to Meggan's blog - Meggan's been a huge supporter of the Ant & Bea series, taking part in last year's blog tour, and hosting the cover reveal for Dead Stock, so it was lovely to have her back on board for the second Ant & Bea tour.

Day four brought us to Sarah Wither's Blog for a review of Dead Stock. Sarah was also on the first Ant & Bea tour last year, and she joined us for our crime panel on Monday - it's always great fun introducing authors to bloggers who've loved their writing!

Our fifth stop on the tour took us to the Portobello Book Blog for an author interview - find out how Rachel got into writing, which books she's been reading, and what she's working on at the moment.

Next we headed over to the Cramlington Book Club blog for another great review of The Cost of Living.

Day seven saw a little bit of a technological hiccup, but we'll be sure to let you know as soon as Mols' interview with Rachel is available!

Last, but certainly not least, we stopped by the LoveBooksGroup blog for a review of The Cost of Living - we're delighted (particularly when we're so close to the end of 2018) that Kelly's listed the first Ant & Bea mystery as one of her top 5 books of the year!

Thanks to all the fabulous bloggers who took part in the tour - we love spending time with Ant & Bea, and it's always a joy to hear from others who love them as much as we do!
