“It looks like a regular advent calendar.

So, sending a handmade one of crime scene photographs to a police stationContinue reading “The Deaths of December by Susi Holliday”

Come Sundown by Nora Roberts

After enjoying Obsession by Nora Roberts so much back in June 2020, I picked up Come Sundown. I was attracted to this book by the mention of a family ranch, vigilante strong female character and a wrongly accused lover in the blurb, little did I know there would be so much more among the 547Continue reading “Come Sundown by Nora Roberts”

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”

A Stranger on the Beach by Michele Campbell

I cannot decide if I liked this book or not. The blurb drew me in, and I was hoping for a really interesting, twisty thriller with some dark, parasitic insights, but what it actually was was rather annoying. It was a he-said-she-said format about bad, spontaneous life choices and how to escape predictable situations. ThereContinue reading “A Stranger on the Beach by Michele Campbell”

The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware

Ruth Ware is very distinguished thriller writer, firmly on my go-to-author list because I’ve enjoyed all her books I’ve read so far. My edition of this book was published in the UK in April 2020, and in April 2020 the social media world went mad over this book. The actual world was going slightly madContinue reading “The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware”

The Woman Who Went Overboard by Florence Wetzel

I was lucky enough to be sent this book from the author herself after connecting on Instagram through the #bookstagram community. I actually read this book in August 2020 during a very warm English summer, which felt rather bizarre and contradicted the pathetic fallacy and atmosphere immediately. But, nonetheless I dived straight into reading itContinue reading “The Woman Who Went Overboard by Florence Wetzel”

Alice Teale is Missing by H.A. Linskey

This book really intrigued me from the blurb – how can a 17-year-old girl just vanish and no one know anything about it? It was also a lovely surprise to find it set in Northumberland where I’ve spent some time over the last couple of years and could relate to the places being described. IContinue reading “Alice Teale is Missing by H.A. Linskey”

I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh

Having previously read and liked I See You and Let Me Lie by Clare Mackintosh, I was excited to read I Let You Go. The blurb draws you in with the mysterious November event that changed Jenna’s life and the premonition that it will catch up with her. I have to say, the outcome wasn’tContinue reading “I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh”

The Obsession by Nora Roberts

Nora Roberts is one of those authors who can do everything. And do everything really well. She has written fantasy, romance and thriller novels with a bibliography spanning over 215 novels! I picked up “The Obsession” on a whim, not knowing anything about the author and just thought the blurb sounded good… And it quicklyContinue reading “The Obsession by Nora Roberts”

The Neighbour by Fiona Cummins

With ‘Lockdown’ causing dedicated bookstores to close temporarily, supermarkets who sell books became a “saving Grace” for avid readers. Although, I do much prefer to visit an actual bookstore; I just find the atmosphere friendlier and comforting and the customers in there share a love of literature, not just aimlessly perusing every aisle on theirContinue reading “The Neighbour by Fiona Cummins”
