Duplicity ~ Sibel Hodge

I really enjoyed this book. I was reading it thinking I had it all worked out, but every few chapters there was a twist or turn that saw me change my mind all over again. So the plot is a newly married couple come home from eloping and suddenly one becomes a widow, but isContinue reading “Duplicity ~ Sibel Hodge”

The Body In The Marsh ~ Nick Louth

Started strongly and finished impeccably BUT it was the middle that lacked for me; when Elizabeth Knight goes missing and appears to have been murdered by her husband, who disappears off the face of the earth, it’s up to DCI Craig Gillard to hunt down the truth. The middle of the book is where theContinue reading “The Body In The Marsh ~ Nick Louth”

Look Behind You ~ Sibel Hodge

I loved this book! I devoured it in three sittings! My previous read took a good while to get through and I thought I had hit a wall and gotten myself in to a reading slump BUT turns out I hadn’t (sadly something about the book meant I wasn’t 100% in it) and Look BehindContinue reading “Look Behind You ~ Sibel Hodge”

The Secret Of Cold Hill ~ Peter James

I’d give this book an 8/10 and this is why; I devoured it in just three days and was intrigued right from the start, however the ending seriously lacked for me. It became very confusing and very infuriating toward the end. Several thoughts went through my mind and they included Jason going mad by makingContinue reading “The Secret Of Cold Hill ~ Peter James”

After The End; The Furious Four ~ Samantha Rendel

I was gifted a digital copy of this book prior to its general release in exchange for my feedback and opinions. To start off with, I don’t “do” Zombies. The only film I’ve ever seen that hasn’t made me crap my pants is Shaun of the Dead but generally, me and zombies just don’t mix.Continue reading “After The End; The Furious Four ~ Samantha Rendel”

In To The Darkness ~ Sibel Hodge

The second instalment of the Detective Carter series. What do you get when you cross a detective, a missing girl and a vigilante? One AMAZING crime thriller is what! Toni, a teenage girl, goes missing and her worries mother makes a phone call to an old friend with the hopes he can find her. DetectiveContinue reading “In To The Darkness ~ Sibel Hodge”

Kill Me Again ~ Rachel Abbott

I didn’t realise this was book 5 in a series and I have to say it doesn’t appear to matter if the series is read in order or not; the plot and victims are centre stage and the DCI is just another character solving a murder and his back story doesn’t come in to itContinue reading “Kill Me Again ~ Rachel Abbott”

The Disappeared~Sibel Hodge

For me this read is a 9.5/10 I liked this book; it was informative and well researched and also shocking. Knowing how well Sibel Hodge considers her topics and thoroughly and deeply delves in to the subject matter, I’m confident in saying I have learnt a lot about cocoa plantations and slave trade from thisContinue reading “The Disappeared~Sibel Hodge”
