My Review

I am a huge fan of this author and I was delighted to read and review this gorgeous book.

As always, the author combines a completely compelling family drama with completely relatable characters and it makes for a book that is so hard to put down.

The story is told from both of the sisters’ points of view and it’s so sad to see how they fell out in the past, when they used to be so close as children.

I liked both of them as characters and I was particularly fond of little Willow, Penny’s daughter.

This is a totally engrossing read and found myself completely drawn into the story. The themes of family and of love are very strong in this book and the story flows beautifully.

I can’t say too much about why Penny comes home, or what follows this but, like real life, it’s heart-breaking and also has many beautiful and uplifting moments.

This is a book that held me captivated and engrossed but that also broke my heart. It’s really moving and poignant, but it’s all so sensitively written.

An absolutely gorgeous and emotional read, I can’t recommend it enough, just be prepared to shed some tears.

About the Book: 

She’s there to keep your baby safe… Or is she?

I’ve always wanted a baby, more than anything. I never meant to do it alone, but it’ll be a fresh start. I can finally leave the past behind me.

I’m so lucky to have Jackie, my midwife, who understands how hard this is. She supports me more than anyone could have hoped or expected.

But as I sit in this cold white room, that was meant to be full of other mothers to be, a chill creeps up my spine. There’s only one other mother here, and she’s clutching her bump nervously. And as she squirms under Jackie’s questions, Jackie can’t stop staring at me.

And then something clicks, and my blood freezes. She recognises me, doesn’t she?

For fans of The Girl on the TrainGone Girl and The Housemaid, this is a psychological thriller that will have you reading late into the night and gasping at the final twist!Author Bio and Social Media 

My Review:

Well, this book had me really intrigued. We meet Lauren the mother, and Jackie the midwife and right from the start it’s clear that this is no ordinary midwife/mother relationship, but I had no idea what the connection was, or what was going to happen.

The story unfolds, told from their alternating points of view and the plot thickens as it appears that both of them have something to hide.

Although the story is slow to develop I think this adds to the suspense. There’s quite a sense of foreboding but no clues as to what might be developing.

I didn’t particularly warm to either of the main characters, but that didn’t detract from the story at all, in fact it made it more authentic.

A dark and mysterious book, full of tension, I found this a difficult one to put down as I became more and more drawn into the story. Intriguing and cleverly plotted.

6 Ripley Avenue by Noelle Holten

ONE HOUSE
EIGHT KILLERS
NO WITNESSES

Jeanette is the manager of a probation hostel that houses high risk offenders released on license.

At 3am one morning, she receives a call telling her a resident has been murdered.

Her whole team, along with the eight convicted murderers, are now all suspects in a crime no one saw committed…

Don’t miss the first nerve-shredding standalone thriller from Noelle Holten, author of the Maggie Jamieson series.

My Review:

I am a huge fan of the Maggie Jamieson series, and even though I can’t wait for the next one in the series, this standalone novel is just superb and gave me my Noelle Holten fix until the next book.

As a crime and thriller novel this book has it all. It opens on a really explosive event, a murder in a probation hostel, but there’s more to this story than just finding out who has done it. It’s not over yet, and there’s huge tension and suspense as we wait to see who else is in danger, and why.

The characterisation is excellent, with really authentic characters, not all of them likeable, and it makes for a really realistic story. I really enjoyed the way the story was told from multiple points of view, and even though the killer is one of the voices it doesn’t make it any easier to identify them.

Although there are not many suspects to choose from, it’s impossible to work out who the killer might be. The rising sense of suspense and menace and the twists and turns of the plot make this book impossible to put down. I found myself absorbed in it for hours on end.

As well as being heart-stoppingly thrilling and addictive, I found the insight into the criminal justice system fascinating. So often in crime novels we get as far as the criminal being caught and brought to justice, but I never really thought about what happens to them after they have served their time.

All in all, a really unputdownable and thrilling book. Another complete triumph for this really talented author.

A Royal Visit to Victory Street by Pam Howes

I’m so delighted to be part of the tour today for this gorgeous book. Thanks so much to Bookouture for the copy of the book and invitation to be part of the tour.

Book Description:

From Amazon charts bestseller Pam Howes comes an emotional and uplifting saga about the power of family and a community trying to rebuild their lives after the terrible war that nearly destroyed everything…

1956, Liverpool. With the shadow of the war looming over them and bomb craters littering the surrounding streets, hope feels far away for the residents of Victory Street. When they learn that the Queen has chosen to visit them on a tour of Liverpool, the delighted neighbours bring back the wartime spirit. Can they possibly get the street ready in time?

Even a royal visit cannot take away Bella Harrison’s worries. Her son, fourteen-year-old Levi, has just told her he wants to move to America to join the rest of his father’s family. The news has so shocked Bella that she’s not sure she’ll be able to sing for the Queen, jeopardising all their plans for the big day.

Life has been hard for Levi, growing up as a mixed-race boy in Liverpool, but he’s the light of Bella’s life. The thought of losing him brings back the terrible memories of her father and sister dying during the war. If everyone pulls together to make the Queen’s visit an unforgettable celebration, perhaps she can persuade Levi that Victory Street is where he belongs.

But when Levi receives heartbreaking news from America and his move becomes uncertain, Bella starts to wonder if all her efforts to keep him in Liverpool have been for the right reasons. Can Bella find it in herself to sing for the big celebration, and make the right choice for her beloved son?

A totally unputdownable, heart-wrenching historical novel, packed with family secrets, perfect for fans of Dilly Court, Diney Costeloe and Nancy Revell.

My Review:

I have been a fan of this series right from the start and I’m so glad that it continued on after the war era. It was wonderful to be reunited with all my favourite characters again and to see how their lives are progressing.

The characters in this book are so well developed and it’s so easy to be drawn into the story and feel as though you know them all. Like every family, they have evolved and grown and as the series progresses children grow up and become the next generation. Levi is now fourteen years old and trying to decide on his future at a time of great change.

I could almost feel the excitement of the build up to the Royal visit in the book, and could picture the wonderful day that they all experienced. It was especially poignant and special given the recent passing of the Queen.

I found the historical element of this book fascinating, seen as it is through the lives of ordinary people, in their daily lives, their fashion and their music.

The themes of family, community and friendship are very strong in this book, but it’s very realistic with sensitive subjects tackled in a very compassionate way.

I was just totally absorbed in this book and felt myself transported into their stories. I found myself engrossed for many a pleasant hour in this gorgeous read.

If you haven’t read any of this series yet I can’t recommend it enough. This book can be read as a standalone, but I’d really advise you to treat yourself and binge-read the whole series, you’ll be in for a treat.

The Silent Child by MJ White

I’m so pleased to be part of the tour today for this gripping book. Thanks so much to Rachel’s Random Resources and Hera Books for the copy of the book and invitation to be part of the tour.

When a body is discovered at an abandoned Suffolk farm, DS Rob Minshull and the squad believes it’s the latest casualty of the drugs war terrorising rural communities. But when the victim is identified as a well-respected local teacher, the case is thrown wide open.

While they hunt the murderer, the South Suffolk CID team face a new threat. A brutal vigilante group dispensing their own twisted justice puts the investigation in grave danger, as well as the detectives.

Educational psychologist, Dr Cora Lael, is called in to work with Lottie Arundel, a troubled teen who stopped speaking a year ago.

As Cora enters Lottie’s world, it seems that the teen’s silence might hold the key to the case. But as Cora and Rob work together to find a vicious killer, it’s clear that uncovering Lottie’s secrets will take Cora and Rob into the most dangerous of places – where the price to pay for the truth might be death…

My Review

I was so excited to hear that there was a new Cora Lael book out, I absolutely loved the last one.

This one is the same exciting mix of crime, fascinating insights, chilling plot and deep and realistic characterisation as the first one in the series, but I think I enjoyed this one even more than the last one.

There’s a brutal murder to throw us right into the action, and the compelling and complex police investigation begins. This is a super twisty plot, and at first I couldn’t see where the connection between Cora’s work and the police work was. But as time goes on it becomes more obvious that the two are linked and it’s a breathtaking and tense race to the finish then.

This is totally compulsive, cancel-everything reading. It’s impossible to put down and I was absorbed in it for hours on end.

One of my top reads of the year so far, I’d really recommend this to anyone who loves superb crime and thriller writing.

Just One Day – Autumn by Susan Buchanan

I’m so pleased to be part of the blog tour today for this gorgeous book. Thanks so much to Rachel’s Random Resources for the copy of the book and invitation to be part of the tour.

Pregnant Louisa is just getting back on track when life throws her another curveball. Now, it’s not a case of how she’ll get through her to-do lists but how she’ll manage being a mum again.

No one seems to understand. How will she run her company, be partner in a new venture, look after her three kids and handle a newborn? And why does everyone think this will be easy? Except her.

All Louisa wants is to be a good mum, a good wife and have a bit of time left for herself, but sometimes that’s too big an ask. Can she find the support she needs, or will she forever be pulled in too many directions, always at the mercy of her to-do lists?

My Review

I have absolutely loved this series so far, and even though I was really looking forward to reading this one, I was also very sorry that it had to come to an end so I really took my time to enjoy it.

It was wonderful to catch up with Louisa and her family again and it felt like being reunited with old friends again. So much has happened to the Halliday family this year, and as their year draws to a close it’s still a busy and eventful time.

This book is filled with Louisa’s trademark good humour and her resilience. Her life is very hectic and about to become even more so, and even though she admits to feeling apprehensive about how they will cope, she has a great support network and she’s a really strong and resourceful character.

I enjoyed this book from start to finish, and even though I’m sorry that the series has come to an end, I felt that it wrapped everything up perfectly. It’s a story filled with love and laughter, but it’s realistic and sympathetically told.

If you haven’t discovered this series yet then you’re in for a complete treat. If you’re already a fan then enjoy this last installment as you get caught up in the lives of Louisa and her family. A wonderful read from start to finish.

The Nurse’s Secret by Liz Lawler

I’m delighted to tell you about this thrilling book, which is published today. Thanks so much to Bookouture for the copy of the book and invitation to be part of the tour.

Book Description:

Loving wife. Caring nurse. Liar.

You trust her with your life… She has a deadly secret.

In hospital, lives begin and end every day.

The doctors and nurses work round the clock to keep their patients breathing, yet death is part of their routine.

When the police arrive in the brightly lit corridors, asking for pretty, young, Nurse Shaw, staff and patients start talking.

The say Sarah Shaw’s husband has been murdered. They’d only been married for a few short months.

The police want to know where Sarah was that night. And why the medicine went missing from the hospital a few days before.

As William Shaw’s complicated past unravels it’s clear that Sarah has secrets of her own. But as she delivers pills in paper cups with a stiff smile and shaking hands, her patients want to know, is she a killer, or is her life in danger too?

An addictive psychological thriller that will have you glued to the pages until the final shocking twist. Perfect for fans of K.L. Slater, Shari Lapena and Clare Mackintosh.

My Review:

What a totally addictive read this book is!

In this book, nothing is as it seems. There are so many secrets and lies and a super twisty plot. Once you start reading it you won’t be able to put it down.

The story is told from several persons’ perspectives and each time it nudges us a little closer to the truth. It’s a complex plot, with many layers, and we get Sarah’s story, a fascinating police procedural storyline, and the stories of those who are working on the case.

I was totally caught up in this book and spent an entire evening, TV off, just finishing it as I had to find out what had happened. This is not a straightforward plot, and it’s not one that you’ll guess before time.

This book is a psychological thriller with a difference. Yes, it’s compelling, gripping and intriguing with lots of suspense, but it’s also dark and poignant with a real richness and depth to both the plot and the characters. These are characters who you will care about, whose lives you will become immersed in, and there’s an almost movie-like quality to the book. It would make an amazing TV drama.

Highly recommended for an addictive and hard to put down read that will keep you enthralled.

DESCRIPTION

My husband has been accused of something terrible. But what I’m about to do is much worse…

I’m sick to my stomach when I hear about the young woman found dead outside my husband’s music studio the night of our wedding anniversary. She and Theo were close, so when the police knock on the door as our daughter sleeps peacefully upstairs, I think they’re just trying to rule him out. But then I see the panicked look in his eyes…

“That’s not possible. I just saw her—”. I watch my perfect husband freeze. Just moments earlier, he had told the cops he hadn’t seen her. Why is he changing his story?

Most women would leave him—take their child and run for the hills. But I won’t. Theo and I have been together a long time. I know his secrets. And he knows mine… well, most of them. I’m the best lawyer in this town and I’m his only chance. I will defend him, whatever the cost.

As the police begin to pick apart our relationship, they don’t paint a pretty picture, and even some of our so-called friends begin to tell stories. My whole life has been a lie.

Can I really trust the man I love?

And when push comes to shove, can he trust me?

Fans of Gone GirlThe Girl on the Train and The Housemaid will love this spine-tinglingly tense psychological thriller with a mind-blowing twist!

MY REVIEW

Ooh I really loved this book!

I was lucky that I started reading this book while on a plane and train journey as I had so much time to just sit down and soak it all up. I was so engrossed in it that they journey just flew past.

This book has absolutely everything that you could want in a good domestic thriller. The characters are so authentic and the drama just flows. There’s a dual timeline that goes from the time before the murder to the time after and the tension really builds as we get closer to the truth.

I loved both elements of this book, the intrigue of the the murder and the drama of the court case.

Another thrilling and twisty read from this superbly talented author, I can’t recommend it highly enough, a real page-turner.

MY RATING

Rating: 5 out of 5.

AUTHOR BIO

Forensic psychologist by day, novelist by night, Ellery Kane has been writing–professionally and creatively–for as long as she can remember. Just like many of her main characters, Ellery loves to ask why, which is the reason she became a psychologist in the first place. Real life really is stranger than fiction, and Ellery’s writing is often inspired by her day job. Evaluating violent criminals and treating trauma victims, she has gained a unique perspective on the past and its indelible influence on the individual. And she’s heard her fair share of real life thrillers.

Ellery lives in the San Francisco Bay Area of California, a picturesque setting that provides the backdrop for many of her novels. If you don’t find Ellery interviewing murderers behind prison walls or pecking away at her latest novel, she is probably at the gym landing a solid jab-cross to a punching bag; riding bicycles with her special someone; or enjoying a movie the old-fashioned way–at the theater with popcorn and Milk Duds.

Ellery was previously selected as one of ten semifinalists in the MasterClass James Patterson Co-Author Competition, and she recently signed a three book deal with Bookouture for her new Rockwell and Decker mystery thriller series. The first book is scheduled for release in 2020.

The Girlfriend by K.L. Slater

I’m delighted to tell you about this gripping book today. Thanks so much to Bookouture for the copy of the book and invitation to be part of the tour.

Book Description:

My husband’s dead. She’s at my door. She owns my home…

The doorbell rings, just days after my beloved husband’s sudden death. I don’t recognise the woman on our doorstep, with her buttery blonde highlights, a diamond bracelet identical to my own and a bouncing baby boy in her arms.

As I show her inside, I notice her eyes grow wide as she takes in our spacious hallway, and the big squashy sofas that we all used to pile on. She glances at the silver-framed family photos and my little daughter hiding behind my skirts.

She looks at me, her blue eyes serious. ‘I’m sorry’ she says. ‘I know this will be hard to hear. But I am your husband’s girlfriend. And this is his son.’

My world implodes. And then she tells me that she owns our home – and that she’s not going anywhere…

An utterly gripping psychological thriller from the number one bestselling author of The Marriage. If you like Gone GirlThe Girl on the Train and Lisa Jewell then you will be hooked by The Girlfriend.

My Review:

What a very clever plot this book has! Jennifer suffers a terrible shock when her husband Cole dies suddenly, but then in the midst of her grief Sara appears. She has been having an affair with her husband and owns the family home and all the assets.

Jennifer is completely stuck and has to let Sara move in, and I found myself feeling for her as Sara takes over everything. The poor children are also affected by it all, and I really liked the development of Miller’s character.

This is a book full of twists and turns, and it really kept me guessing. The tension and suspense are palpable throughout. I particularly enjoyed the way we got pieces of plot from several characters, interspersed with snippets from the police investigation.

A complete page-turner, I’d really recommend sitting down and getting completely stuck into this one.

The Nursery by Sue Watson

I’m delighted to be part of the tour today for this completely gripping book. Thanks so much to Bookouture for the copy of the book and invitation to be part of the tour.

Book Description:

Then: Morning light shines into the nursery, casting shadows across the pale pink walls and wooden cot in the middle of the room. She opens the door expecting to hear the soft coo of her daughter Sofia stretching herself awake. But the room is silent. The cot is empty. Her little girl has vanished…

Now: Twelve years have passed, but Emily will never forget the night her life changed forever and she’s happy to have her daughter back beside her. A teenager now, Sofia – who was once a star student – is getting into trouble at school and she’s started asking questions about when she was a baby, but Emily can’t tell her what really happened the night she went missing. Nobody would understand why Emily did what she did, and if anyone ever found out, she could lose her daughter forever.

But when Emily catches Sofia messaging a stranger online, her heart pounds in her chest as she reads the last message received.

Your mother isn’t who you think she is.

Days later, Emily returns home to find the house silent. She checks every room but Sofia has vanished, again. She shudders as she remembers that night in the nursery. Has her past finally caught up with her? And is she already too late to save her precious daughter?

A completely gripping, utterly twisted thriller that will leave your jaw on the floor. Perfect for fans of Gone Girl, The Wife Between Us and The Woman in the Window.

My Review:

I love Sue Watson’s books, and you’re always guaranteed a real page-turner with them.

At first I had no idea what to think. Emily certainly seemed overprotective of Sofia, but I really couldn’t figure out what she had run away from, or what secrets she was hiding. There’s a feeling of foreboding and a real tension in the story as it progresses.

I was fairly sure that I had it all figured out later on in the book, but this book is full of twists and turns and I was wrong.

I really liked the character development in this story and along with the very suspenseful plot it makes for a really riveting read.

This is one that kept me reading late into the night, I’d really highly recommend it.
