The mystery thriller, Freya’s Child, packs plenty of spine tingling action
into a combination of odd twists as an archaeological dig uncovers more
than just a few old relics. PJ Roscoe has put together a tale that combines
second lives, second sight and nightmares into one as Robert and Helen
not only struggle with a marriage gone sour, but are suddenly in way over
their heads as their daughter Charlotte, “Cherry,” begins talking about her
new friends that she has been seeing in their new house on a regular
basis. The problems of their marriage are suddenly put on the back
burner as ghostly kidnappers make an attempt to steal their child.
Meanwhile, Kathryn has a problem of her own. She has insisted on
opening up the archaeological dig at a site where she believes that an old
Norse village once stood. It’s not just any Norse village, but her village,
the one that she lived in at one time, perhaps in a past life. The vivid
details of her nightmare have been with her since childhood, but they
have taken a much deeper hold on her once she begins the dig. As the
ghosts from the past become more active and the nightmares become
more intense, Kathryn’s path collides with that of Robert, Helen and
Cherry. Even those who are not prone to believe in ghosts and past lives
must suddenly admit that something strange is going on. Together the lot
of them must solve the mystery to save a little girl’s life and to bring
some peace to themselves.
PJ Roscoe has written a chilling thriller that will keep you turning pages in
spite of yourself. Freya’s Child draws past and present together in a
conflict of souls that is all too real. PJ does a great job of drawing
parallels between the lives of the Norse individuals of the past and those
who are in the present. Though at times, I became a little bit weary of
the conflict between Robert and Helen, there was enough excitement and
action continuing with Cherry and with Kathryn to keep me turning pages.
Suspenseful, chilling and probing, Freya’s Child goes beyond just telling a
thrilling story and presenting a mystery to be solved, but also looks
deeper into the troubled souls of individuals seeking all sorts of answers to bring peace
Other reviews found on Amazon/Goodreads continue to be four/five star

We had a great afternoon with lots of people coming to walk amongst the art work and listen to my talking and reading an extract from the book. We ate cake and gallons of tea and coffee was enjoyed by all as Debbie calmed our souls with haunting melodies on her flutes and the wonderful Wirhalh Skip-Felag Viking group enthralled young and old a-like with Viking information and a brilliant exhibition on Viking life.
I went home feeling overwhelmed with love and joy at having so many people come and support me.
A huge thank you to everyone who bought a book, I welcome reviews on Amazon, Goodreads, Smashwords, Google+, in fact, anywhere on the world wide web is great!!
Love and blessings
