It's my stop on the blog tour for "Death Makes No Distinction". This book tells the story of the murder of two very different woman living in Georgian London. The story was well written and I enjoyed trying to work out who was responsible for each of the deaths. This book gets 4 stars from me!
Despite starting this read with a great deal of optimism, "How to Play Dead" wasn't really my cup of tea. I was expecting a gripping thriller but instead this is more of a slow study if characters and their relationships. It's 2 stars from me for this one.
“The Fire Starters” is a fantastical story like none I've ever read before. The description is vivid and the characters are likeable. I'd recommend this to those looking for something a little different – it's 4 stars from me.
“Starve Acre” is a creepy slow-burner. I needed a lot more description to feel full immersed in this gothic story but I enjoyed it for the most part – 3 stars.
'Every Time He Dies' by Tara East is a very well written, fast paced story of gang crime in Brisbane. I was hooked from page one and really enjoyed exploring the mystery behind a number of murders. I'd definitely recommend this one, it's 5 stars from me!
It's my stop on the blog tour for "The Birthday House" by Jill Treseder. "The Birthday House" is a powerful short read examining a real-life murder during the 1950s. Exploring how this crime affected the lives of those who knew the family, this really is a compelling and heart-wrenching story.
'Seven Days' is a really gripping thriller which kept me on the edge of my seat - 4 stars.
"Three Little Truths" is a fun community story with plenty of colourful characters. I really enjoyed looking at the different lives and dynamics of the residents of Pine Road, it's 4 stars from me.
"The Choke" isn't an easy read, it's gritty and it's disturbing in places, but don't let that put you off - author Sofie Laguna is highly praised and rightfully so. This is a powerful read but not one I can say I enjoyed all that much - it's 3 stars from me.
"The Good Luck Girls" had a great opening and I also liked the ending, but I got lost somewhere in the middle. It was an enjoyable read and I'd recommend this for adventure fans or someone looking for a more contemporary Wild West type story – 3 stars.
