The Last Time I Lied ~ Riley Sager

Where to start with this one 🤔 This was a special buy from Aldi the other week and I’m glad I purchased it, however I’m not feeling 100% certain on my thoughts about the book. For the very first and very last chapters, the author has you imagine a scenario (you awaken to sunlight…..you paint….youContinue reading “The Last Time I Lied ~ Riley Sager”

Beneath The Surface ~ Sibel Hodge

Yep, another 10/10 read from the ever talented Sibel Hodge; extremely thought provoking and stays with you long after you’ve turned the very last page. This isn’t at all like the previous novels of hers I’ve read (Dark Shadows being the latest release) which I fondly nickname Becky Books and Carter Books (if you know,Continue reading “Beneath The Surface ~ Sibel Hodge”

An Anatomy Of A Scandal ~ Sarah Vaughan

Sitting on the fence a bit with this one. It’s one I’ve been seeing in magazine reviews and on social media, hearing good things, so added to my ever growing To Be Read list. I’m Glad I read it as I actually learnt a lot from the book and found it interesting read as aContinue reading “An Anatomy Of A Scandal ~ Sarah Vaughan”

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”

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”
