As part of the Aussie Readers group on Goodreads, I’m participating in the June Challenge – Chilly Cozy Crime Winter! Why don’t you check out the rest of the post to find out how you too can participate!
The crux of the challenge is to read at least one book in the month of June that falls into the category set out by the Moderators.
June is really starting to feel cold – so what better time is there to read a book to make you feel COZY!! You can choose whether you read a book to give you CHILLS – horror, murder, thriller or a COZY mystery – or even both if you want:)
Snuggle with a hot chocolate and your favourite COZY book and ENJOY the month of June!

Synopsis: A mother. A daughter. A demon…. How Does a Hot, Sexy Mother Who Hates Her Daughter Put Her Ultimate Plan Into Action?
There are many beautiful stories about mother/daughter relationships out there, but CHARLA isn’t one of them! CHARLA is the story of a sexy mother who hates her daughter and manages to secretly bring her pain and discomfort. So creative is Charla in satisfying her unsettling needs, that even Amelie grew up unaware of her mother’s deranged feelings towards her.
With Amelie all grown up now, it has become harder and harder for Charla to quench her morbid impulses without getting her hands dirty. So … one lonely dawn, Charla experiences a very weird event that sparks the idea of summoning a demon to disrupt her twenty-five year old daughter’s perfect, pretty little life. She puts the sick plan into action … and the demon moves in…
Synopsis: An award-winning horror/mystery with loads of dark comedy!
Inside all of us, there is darkness. Inside Clive, it’s tangible, and it’s aching to get out.
What Hides Within tells the story of a man held captive by an unknown evil. Clive Menard is a spineless slacker leading an ordinary existence. But when Chester enters his life, it becomes far from ordinary.
A disheveled Clive stands alone in a hospital waiting room. A series of incidences have led him to undergo unnecessary neurosurgery. A voice inside Clive’s head nags him to kill the doctor.
Weeks prior, a murder investigation and an unrelated kayaking excursion set the story’s interlocking events in motion. When a remorseful killer, a bomb-happy psychopath and a mysterious widow spider converge upon Clive, they bring with them destruction and death. Clive must discover who or what is steering his very existence before he, too, is consumed by the carnage around him.
With a driven detective following his every step and a vicious killer hiding within his circle of friends, Clive must walk a narrow and dangerous path, teetering between salvation and damnation. He must confront Chester and his own demons. But is he powerless to overcome them?
An EPIC Finalist, “Best Horror of 2013” read and eFestival eBook Award Runner-Up for Best Horror.
