21st December 2021: The Liar by Nora Roberts

Installment #3: The Liar by Nora Roberts I’ve previously read 2 other titles by Nora Roberts (The Obsession, Come Sundown) and enjoyed both immensely. She seems to have this natural ability to combine a personal past mystery with a new romance and whilst her strong female lead characters inevitably end up in trouble, they alsoContinue reading “21st December 2021: The Liar by Nora Roberts”

He Started It by Samantha Downing

Intrigued is the best word to describe how I felt when I first read the title and blurb. Disappointed is the word as I finish the last page. There was so much promise throughout the storyline and I did enjoy the reading journey through the body of the book, but the ending was just messy,Continue reading “He Started It by Samantha Downing”

The DCI Jonah Sheens Series by Gytha Lodge

UPDATED 05/04/2021: #3 Lie Beside Me review posted below! I previously posted my review of number #1: She Lies In Wait in April 2020, and eagerly anticipated the release of number #2: Watching From The Dark from reading the extract at the end. I rather quickly settled into liking Gytha’s writing style, but also howContinue reading “The DCI Jonah Sheens Series by Gytha Lodge”

Hangman by Daniel Cole

I was intrigued in the idea of a joint investigation between the UK and USA police forces as I find myself increasingly interested in the different justice systems. Working linked crime scenes in countries so far apart is also a concept I haven’t found explored too often in crime writing. I hadn’t read any previousContinue reading “Hangman by Daniel Cole”

An Unwanted Guest by Shari Lapena

This is the first novel by Shari Lapena that I’ve read, but it certainly won’t be the last. In true murder-mystery style ‘An Unwanted Guest’ traps you with the characters in a hotel caught in a snowstorm, unable to leave. And then, a guest is found dead. Well, the first guest is found dead. CastContinue reading “An Unwanted Guest by Shari Lapena”

16th May 2020: The Katharina Code by JΓΈrn Lier Horst

Installment #2: The Katharina Code by JΓΈrn Lier Horst This evening I’ve decided to mix things up a little bit from my usual reviews; I’m going to explore the story behind my Currently Reading pick! A hobby of mine since I was 12 years old is going Drag Racing and the European championship includes countriesContinue reading “16th May 2020: The Katharina Code by JΓΈrn Lier Horst”

Th1rt3en by Steve Cavanagh

This is unlike any thriller I’ve ever read before. The bold, red highlights on the fairly unassuming, plain black cover was the first thing to catch my attention, then no traditional “blurb” further intrigued me and lastly the testimonials from other high profile authors solidified my decision to pick up this book would be worthwhile.Continue reading “Th1rt3en by Steve Cavanagh”

Black Widow by Chris Brookmyre

485 pages of heart-pounding, gritty, suspense-filled Thriller goodness. This book had me gripping the edge of my seat one moment, then feeling sympathetic or laughing the next. All the chapters are individually named, which is a unique touch; I liked that. There are multiple POVs in this book, the majority written in 3rd person, butContinue reading “Black Widow by Chris Brookmyre”

Let Me Lie by Clare Mackintosh

I first read “I See You” by Clare Mackintosh and loved the creepy suspense she effortlessly created, so when I saw she had another book out it was an auto-buy for me, as I wanted to see if she could replicate her impressive writing style. I was not disappointed, not that I thought I everContinue reading “Let Me Lie by Clare Mackintosh”
