has RECEIVED a


A PREMIER Readers’ Award


Premier Readers’ Award is honoured to books that receive exceptional high evaluations from Chill Readers.


The Plain of Redemore, 22nd August 1485

Richard III – betrayed and defeated!

His gaze sweeps over the bloody carnage surrounding him. A cry goes up: “We have found the king!” He sees Henry Tudor standing triumphant over a mauled and battered corpse and hears him whisper, “It is done. England is mine.”

How can this be, when he is not dead?

With the help of his celestial mentor Father Gilbert, a Franciscan monk, Richard will learn that malign Tudor propaganda has not reigned supreme and that history did not entirely paint him as the child-killer king.

Will he grasp the chance of renaissance and exit the spiritual purgatory that has held him hostage for more than half a millennium?

Running Kind by Christine Stovell


Running Kind

has RECEIVED a


A PREMIER Readers’ Award


Premier Readers’ Award is honoured to books that receive exceptional high evaluations from Chill Readers.


Christine Stovell didn’t think she was the running kind. Running, she believed, was for elite athletes and hardcore fitness freaks. Then, after causing a local scandal, she found herself hiding in her parents' loft with her two young daughters and decided to try running as a means of escape. That attempt ended so painfully it was four years before she felt brave enough to try another run.

Christine's story takes her from running scared to running half marathons. In twenty years, she’s run through sad, bad and good times and dealt with everything from territorial pheasants to scary loos. Above all, she’s discovered not only that running doesn’t have to hurt, but that it has a great capacity to heal.

If you’ve ever been tempted to try running but think it isn’t for you, Christine’s experience might just convince you that you too can become the running kind.

Genre:  Exercise & Fitness a true story!
Approx pages:  81

Bright Daffodil Yellow by Suzi Stembridge


Bright Daffodil Yellow

has RECEIVED a


Chill with a Book READERS’ Award


The seeds from one man’s romantic trysts with four different women have germinated as he flees the 1974 Turkish invasion of Cyprus and attempts to live incognito in the English Lake District. The novel explores the fears of a haunted and hunted man and his gauche attempts at disguise. When success seems possible despite fate intervening during the Moorgate tube disaster and the dubious motives of those in the medical profession presumably there to help him, his own uncertainties and sexuality return to overwhelm him. Will the need to acknowledge his male offspring prevail?

Genre: Mystery/ Suspense / Thriller
Approx pages: 385
