Book Review: Walking Into Trouble

HRR Gorman has reviewed my previous book, below and it’s always intriguing to see how others see your work. Maybe I’ve stumbled on a previously undiscovered genre…
Oh and her spoiler review… How many of you think a linear walk where you can find food and accommodation at the end of each day is strange? Maybe it’s one of those Anglo-American contradictions…
Anyway, thanks HRR and please enjoy it everyone.

Let Me Tell You the Story of...

Geoff LePard is a popular blogger ’round these parts, and some bloggers have been urging me to read his works for a while. So, when I received a review request from him through my Review Request Page, I knew I had to read it!

That being said, it’s not my usual genre, so hold onto your butts.

The Book

Walking Into Trouble

As a note for people who are thinking about this book: there are a lot of intense sexual implications, innuendo, and scenes. The book is not erotica, but sex takes a front seat of importance in the story. I’d honestly classify this as a “sex mystery,” as the story is essentially about trying to solve problems surrounding who slept with who and when.

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published several books: a four book series following Harry Spittle as he grows from hapless student to hapless partner in a London law firm; four others in different genres; a book of poetry; four anthologies of short fiction; and a memoir of my mother. I have several more in the pipeline. I have been blogging regularly since 2014, on topic as diverse as: poetry based on famous poems; memories from my life; my garden; my dog; a whole variety of short fiction; my attempts at baking and food; travel and the consequent disasters; theatre, film and book reviews; and the occasional thought piece. Mostly it is whatever takes my fancy. I avoid politics, mostly, and religion, always. I don't mean to upset anyone but if I do, well, sorry and I suggest you go elsewhere. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.

    It’s a wonderful read. I loved every second. And what’s unusual about that kind of walk? I think the publicans along the courses of the Pennine Way, The Coast to Coast, The Cumbria Way, and countless others make hay from the fact that approach is far from uncommon.

    The idea of walks with a place to stay at either end developed early on in Europe, particularly for religious pilgrimages. In more modern times, it’s very common for people to follow the older and newer ‘Ways’ and enjoy some ale, wine, a night’s sleep, a Full English the next morning and then onwards. I expect it’s easier in a small country like Britain to do this kind of thing than in the US, for example.
    For some reason I thought this book was going to be about Geoff’s dad and pals 😀!

      It started out with that as the muse but it soon became a lot darker… that can only be explained by deep diving my id which is not for the faint-hearted!

  4. Surely the early pioneers in America did many linear hikes, setting camp in a new town/village/pile of rocks each night!

    Congrats! 😀 … love that the reviewer didn’t quite get the size difference between the UK and the US. 🙂
