One very much for the holiday club reader mixing sex, sun and drugs into a wacky thriller, Ibiza based. It is the third from him and they are great fun. The Big Issue summed it up brilliantly, “a contemporary trash classic”.

If you like Colin Butts you might also like to read books by Kevin Sampson and Cy Flood.

Synopsis

A Bus Could Run You Over by Colin Butts

Connor has been dumped by his girlfriend. Even worse, her psychotic brothers believe he has a video recorder full of what they think is their cocaine. When Connor's mates head off to Ibiza, with the video recorder and secret stash in tow, he has to find them - before anyone else does. Ibiza has changed since Connor worked there four years ago. And he's changed, too: whatever happened to "living for the moment"? But there's little time to think about his future - he has enough problems trying to make sure his friends don't end up at the bottom of a cliff . . .
And the scene is set for an explosive, hilarious thriller - with a touch of romance - in the Balearics.asy and horror fields for more

I love Lovereading because of its ability to connect people that love books & unite them in a friendly, stimulating & interesting community.

Megan Olwen William

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

Lovereading recommends, honestly reviews and promotes books-what more can I say?!

Rachel Bridgeman

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

Tessa Olson

The best new books on the market, reviewed honestly, to give your readers the best choices.

Julie Cook

I love the newsletter with reviews of all the new books coming out. Can't wait to open it when it arrives in my inbox.

You'll always find what you never knew you were looking for and you're always spoilt for choice.

Helen Jones

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.
