BROKEN BY RONI ASKEY-DORAN – BOOK REVIEW

img_0867

This was very sad but also true to life in this world we live in now so it may not be everyone’s cup of tea.  I really liked the way the author has written this from the heart in fact you could almost think that she was writing from experience.  The characters go together really well and flow off each other.  I thought that having such a good birthday would change her mind about wanting to die so was shocked when she still went ahead with it.  The twist was a brilliant piece of work and pulled everything from the past into the future all together. It took me just one day to read this as I got so engrossed in the story and her life. Very well written and I will be looking out for more of this authors work.

HITMAN SAM BY MORGEN BAILEY – BOOK REVIEW

img_0865

It was nice to read something that was a bit different and answering a newspaper advert about becoming a hitman was certainly that.  I loved the way Sam kept so calm throughout the lead-up, it was as if it was not actually happening to him.  He kept doing the normal things even taking a neighbours dog for walks and trying to get a girl friend and going on dates. The last few chapters are amazing where everything all comes together with some surprises and shocks for Sam as he realises how it is all linked together.  I loved the characters and they all worked together really well, enjoyable read and looking forward to reading more from Morgen Bailey.

 

THE COLOURING BOOK CLUB BY BETH GOOD – BOOK REVIEW

img_0796

I really enjoy reading a light happy book every so often so it lifts my spirits, they are also very easy to pick up and put down but you can still keep up with the story.  It was also not predictable as the two lead characters could have had very different endings so that was good. Very unusual setting but the idea of a colouring club really worked well and great that it was connected to the library.  All the characters were very different but they all fitted together very nicely.  I enjoyed reading this and will look out for more of Beth Goods books.

 

DAMAGED BY PAMELA CALLOW – BOOK REVIEW

img_0797

This is brilliant, from the story, characters and setting, to the great author, it is going to be a succesful series.  Kate is the high-flying lawyer who has never really got over her sister’s death so it impacts on her thoughts a lot.  Not sure if this should be called a medical horror or bloody thriller but which ever you call it there are some gruesome bits in it. From lost body parts and deaths this has a bit of everything including lots of would be romances for Kate, lucky girl.

This keeps you guessing and often takes you up the wrong road with a few red herrings along the way.  Some surprises for me that I would never of thought about, this will be a best seller and the start of something great for Pamela Callow the author.  I am looking forward to the next book already and am sure it will be a page turner just like this one.

 

SECRETS OF THE DEAD BY CAROL WYER – BOOK REVIEW

PUBLISHED ON TUESDAY 30TH MAY 2017

I am really enjoying these thriller books at the moment and this was another good one. DI Robyn Carter is a great character so I wished I had read the previous book in this series but I am sure there will be more.  Here we have a murder that appears a bit random but then there is another one, is there a connection?  DI Carter thinks that maybe there is and goes out to prove to everyone that she is correct.  Nothing is ever that easy in story land so, is she right or is this the work of a lone killer?  I really liked the flow of this story and how the characters worked together.  I am sure this will be a hit with readers and you can order it now.

EXCESS BAGGAGE BY LAURA BARNARD – BOOK REVIEW

facebook-banner-1

You cannot beat a good love story and this ticks all the boxes for a super summer read, light, funny with good characters and a good four stars from me.  Sometimes you really just need to read a happy book so it takes you away from the problems of the day and this will do just that.  Erica will keep you entertained with her mishaps, can anyone be that unlucky?  They will make you laugh though, poor girl but will she get her happy ever after or is it just another holiday romance that disappears like the sand in your luggage.

Don’t forget to pack this in your case.

REDEMPTION SONG BY LAURA WILKINSON – BOOK REVIEW

What a wonderful story, I loved all of it and would not have guessed what was going to happen in it like you can some stories so it all came as a surprise.  Characters were full of life and described very well.  The setting sounded just like a place you went for your holidays when you were small and always wanted to stay and live there.  I am looking forward to reading more of Laura’s work.  This is a must read happy book that will keep you enthralled until the end.
