It’s another 3 stars from me for "A Stanger in the House" by Shari Lapena. This is a contemporary thriller that I enjoyed, but wasn't amazed by. Recommended for fans of the author!
"The Move" was another 3 star read for me. The writing was good and there were lots of lovely descriptions, but the plot didn't really have much to offer. Recommended for fans of a domestic drama, rather than a thriller or mystery.
“Hard Pushed” is a really enjoyable medical memoir. Following midwife Leah Hazard on her journey to become an experienced midwife. Full of interesting stories and anecdotes, this was a great 4 stars for me!
"Life in Pieces" tells one woman's story of her family during lockdown. I did enjoy it and found a lot of Dawn's experiences to be very similar to my own, but I think this book would be better suited to mother's of young children, especially those who were home-schooling at the beginning of the pandemic. An enjoyable 3 star read for me!
“Perfect Prey” is another great D.I. Callanach book by Helen Fields. The murders were gruesome and the story was gripping both of which made for a really great crime story! A 4 star read for me!
“This Time Next Year" by Sophie Cousens is a quirky rom-com with a lot of heart. Minnie Cooper's story makes for a really enjoyable read and a great pick-me-up at the end of a difficult year! 5 stars!
“Twas the Nightshift Before Christmas” is a quick collection of anecdotes from Adam Kay's time working for the NHS. It's a nice read that you'll likely enjoy, but it doesn't have the same impact as his previous book. 3 stars from me!
"Everything I Know About Love" was a really enjoyable read for me. I found it to be relatable and nostalgic and looked forwarded to picking it back up every day. A great 4 stars from me!
I enjoyed the overall message, and for a short while I enjoyed the extended metaphor, but as the book continued, I lost concentration and interest. "Adventures in Opting Out" was a 2 star read for me.
"999 - My Life on the Frontline of the Ambulance Service" is an educational, sometimes heart-breaking memoir by ambulance medic Dan Farnworth. This is definitely a book that more people should be reading - it's 4 stars from me!
