FIRE DAMAGE BY KATE MEDINA-BOOK REVIEW

fullsizeoutput_b90

I found this on my kindle, you know what it’s like you end up with so many on there from all different places.  I am going to start writing them down when I get them and flagging them if a publishing date is coming up, I will be more efficient, well I will try my hardest. Anyway back to this book, I have not heard of the author but wow is she good!  This had a few different story lines but how they all ended up together was positively amazing writing.  I loved all the characters especially Jessie who also had her own problems to deal with but a lovely person and I would love a sequel about her and Callan and their next adventure.  Even though there were a lot of things going on I never got confused or forgot and I must say it is one of the best books I have read for that fact, I don’t know how she did it but it’s great.  This is going in my top 5 books of the year.  I loved it and you really must read it.

THE IDEA OF YOU BY AMANDA PROWSE-BOOK REVIEW

THIS IS A MUST READ BOOK – BRILLIANT

Amanda Prowse does it again, I believe this is one of the best books I have read, very emotional as it is drawn from real feelings and actions.  I am sure Amanda Prowse wept a few tears herself when writing this amazing story.

After finding your true soul mate at the age of 40 you think you have it all and having a baby is the last event you have been dreaming of for years. But it is not that easy and the grief this couple go through is not only emotional but it starts to affect their lives, not only as a couple but the close family as well. Then when her husbands teenager daughter comes to stay it brings a lot more secrets and feelings to the surface.  Can they recover from this?

Following the life of this couple Jonah and Lucy and I must say that the ending is not what you expect but still heart warming.

I don’t like to say too much about the book as you have to read it to really appreciate it, but I can say that this is another best seller for Amanda and a good 10 stars from me.  Order your copy today from Amazon.

LET THE DEAD SPEAK BY JANE CASEY – BOOK REVIEW

What a brilliant story, a true page turner that I could not put down.  The characters are brilliant the story flowed but it left you with questions about everything, a very bloody crime scene but no body.  Young girls going missing, no wonder the police just plodded on as the answers were very slow coming and to be honest I was surprised at the conclusion but really pleased that all the loose ends were tied up at the end.  A brilliant author, I will look forward to reading more of her work.

 

THE KILLER NEXT DOOR BY ALEX MARWOOD-BOOK REVIEW

This was my first visit reading a thriller and what an amazing thriller this was and so surprising for me was that I enjoyed every page of it.  Alex is certainly a brilliant author as this had so much gruesome detail you could actually picture it and even imagine the smells as it was so graphic.  Not very good if you have a sensitive tummy but excellent if you like this type of book.  I will be looking out for the next Alex Marwood book, hoping it is as good as this one.  I particularly like the way all the loose ends were tied up with brilliant endings.  No wonder this book has so many reviews and congratulations as it is up there in my top ten books.

FILM REVIEWS 

Film night
I went round my daughters a while ago for a film night and we watched Bridget Jones’s Baby and The Girl On The Train.  



Bridget Jones’s Baby – Very good, funny and your typical Bridget that we all know and love. Of course there has to be two men and only one can be the father. The ending surprised me as her books normally leave you wondering but this finishes off with the family wedding so Bridget eventually gets married, who would have guessed.  I will leave to you to see who she chooses.


The Girl On The Train – I have read the book which I loved and it was in my top five books that year. I had read a few reviews about the film with most not being very complimentary but I have to say that I thought the film was great. You could follow it through fine even if you hadn’t read the book. The actress Emily Blunt played a fantastic role as the drunk ex-wife that was worthy of an award in my opinion. This keeps you guessing until almost the end and then it all falls into place very neatly. Great film that you really should watch, in fact I could watch it again as it was so good and I don’t say that very often.
