"Mordecai's Ashes" is a really entertaining murder mystery featuring Karl Larsson, the new owner of an established detective agency. The story was well written and kept me engaged throughout. A really good 4 stars from me!
It's 3 stars for Shari Lapena's “Someone We Know", a story full of secrets, gossip and infidelity. I enjoyed it, but it was an okay read for me and probably not one I'll remember long term.
"Gilding the Lily" is a domestic drama full of secrets, lies and plenty of arguments too. I had a couple of niggles, but in general found this to be enjoyable story with unexpected ending.
It's my stop on the blog tour for "The One That Got Away", a twisty thriller that'll keep you guessing right up until the end. Imagine that your ex has been murdered and you're being suspected as the killer! For the most part, this is a fast paced read and it's definitely a well written debut. A great 4 stars from me!
"Hinton Hollow Death Trip" is full of all kinds of evil. Narrated by Evil itself, this isn't a book for the faint-hearted and is sure to keep you on your toes. I personally didn't love the style, but the story was really enjoyable and certainly unique! If you're looking for something dark, give this a try!
I really enjoyed this who-dunnit murder mystery. The two story lines are both compelling and are intertwined well with each other. "Salvation Station" is a really great debut novel and I'd definitely recommend it for crime thriller fans. A strong 4 stars!
It's my stop on the blog tour for "Written in Blood", the eleventh book in the series featuring LAPD Detective Robert Hunter. It's highly detailed and descriptive, it's super fast paced and made for a really enjoyable read. It’s 5 stars from me!
It's my stop on the blog tour for "The Big Chill", a fantastic second book for the Skelf series. Full of secrets and deception, both this and book one, "A Dark Matter" are engaging stories with a cast of strong female characters. This is a fast paced read and one I really enjoyed - another 5 stars from me!
It's my stop on the blog tour for "Sea Wife". This book takes a complex look at marriage and family life whilst sailing the sea around the Caribbean. The writing is beautiful at times but with themes of depression and abuse this isn't a particularly upbeat read. I struggled a little with the terminology but enjoyed it nonetheless. This was a strong 3 star read for me!
"The Family Upstairs" is a dark domestic mystery that has been really popular with readers. For me, the book was good, but nothing special - 3 stars.
