The Life She Wants by Mel Sherratt – review.

Description

From behind the curtains, Sarah spotted the man coming out of the house, followed by the woman. It would be strange seeing people in the property. She wondered how much it would change their lives. For now, she would bide her time and hopefully get to know them better. She needed to gain their trust.

When I met Richard, I fell for him instantly. He was able to give me everything I had always wanted, the dream house, security and above all, love like I’d never known. We lived a quiet life in the middle of nowhere; we didn’t need anyone else.

So, when the empty house next door is sold, I am wary. Will our neighbours invade the perfect life Richard has built for us? As soon as I meet Juliette and Danny, I am reassured. Overwhelmed by grief after the death of their young daughter, they have moved in search of a quiet life and a chance to start again. Over dinner one evening, we hit it off instantly and I know they are just the neighbours we need.

All is well until Juliette spots a young girl in our garden. Richard convinces her that she is seeing things, that it’s the grief taking over. But Juliette won’t let it go. She is sure she saw a child. She believes that Richard is threatening her. She starts to think that I’m not safe.

I need to convince Juliette that she’s imagining it. I need to keep Richard happy. If I am to protect everything I have built for myself, she must never find out the truth.

That my perfect life is built on the deadliest lie.

A heart-stopping psychological thriller with a truly brilliant twist, perfect for fans of Lisa Jewell, T.M. Logan and K.L. Slater.

About the author

“My novels take you to the heart of the crime. I write police procedurals, psychological suspense and crime dramas – fiction with a punch. Shortlisted for the prestigious CWA (Crime Writer’s Association) Dagger in Library Award, my inspiration comes from authors such as Martina Cole, Lisa Jewell, Mandasue Heller and Clare Mackintosh.

To date, I’ve sold 1.7 million books. All sixteen of my crime novels have been bestsellers, each one climbing into the Kindle UK top 10 and I’ve had several number ones. I’ve also had numerous Kindle All-star awards, for best read author and best titles.”

My thoughts

Oh my goodness, this book was unputdownable!

I was absolutely touched by Juliette and Danny’s story and the optimist in me really hoped for their new start to be the best. The setting was perfect. A country house, escaping the bustling city. A beautiful outlook and a strong and loving couple. Then there were the neighbours. (In my head I’m now singing the tune to the popular Aussie soap, Neighbours, and I feel a moment of joy. Park that joy right now).

Richard and Sarah had me engrossed. I had to keep turning those pages to find out what was happening. Some of the chapters left me with the chills. Suddenly the idyllic location felt as though it was a trapping.

If you love a deep psychological thriller with secrets aplenty, then ‘The Life She Wants’ is perfect. The relationships are both complex and compelling, and fear flows in abundance between the pages. Loved it!

Fallen Angel by DK Hood – review.

Publication date – 23 November.

Description

Hurrying along the dark, snow-covered path, she knows she’s not alone when she hears the light tread of someone behind her. Panic rising in her chest, she picks up the pace. But she doesn’t even have a chance to scream before everything goes black.

When a beautiful young woman is reported missing from her hotel room on the outskirts of Black Rock Falls, Sheriff Jenna Alton and her deputy David Kane are devastated to discover her pale, lifeless body trapped beneath a frozen lake nearby. It’s Jenna who finds the single pearl earring buried in the frosted grass that gives them their first lead.

Just as Jenna has the remaining hotel guests safely back in their rooms, the killer strikes again, and another victim is found in one of the hotel’s lakeside cabins. Next to his bloodied body is a second pearl earring. What does it mean, and why is the killer leaving them for Jenna to find?

Interviewing witnesses, Jenna discovers that both victims were seen arguing with other residents hours before their deaths. Could the murderer be out for revenge, and how many more bodies will follow before they are truly satisfied?

As a blizzard cuts the hotel off from Black Rock Falls, Jenna and her team are trapped with the killer. Then she receives a terrifying call from a teenage girl who thinks the murderer was in her room as she slept. Can Jenna save her from becoming the next victim? And how many more innocent lives will be taken before the snow thaws?

Fans of Lisa Regan, Melinda Leigh and Kendra Elliot will love this gripping and addictive thriller from USA Today bestselling author D.K. Hood. Prepare to stay up all night!

My thoughts

Ooh, Fallen Angel was exciting, claustrophobic, and it certainly gave me the chills. The setting was amazing and I found myself getting in the mood for Christmas as I read. I loved the ski resort location. Lately, I’ve really enjoyed reading thrillers set in snowy resorts and all I can say is, this book was brill.

The relationship between Jenna and Dave kept sending the drama into overdrive and the resort guests, what a collection! I found myself captivated by these characters. Also, it’s so well written, I barely saw the words on the page.

As for the crime element – hold onto your bobble hats. It’s icy, calculating and the stuff nightmares are made of. Absolutely fantastic, absorbing and totally thrilling.

If like me, you enjoy a frost filled, action packed read then this murder mystery is the perfect choice!

The New Wife by Sue Watson – review.

Description

You can never truly know what goes on behind closed doors…

My darling son, Sam, is marrying his childhood sweetheart and I couldn’t be prouder of the man he’s grown into. Walking out on his abusive father all those years ago was the best thing I ever did. And today he stands, tall and handsome, saying ‘I do’ to my dream daughter-in-law. If I hadn’t pushed them together all those years ago, he might never have found a girl as perfect as Lauren. It’s true what they say, mother always knows best.

But weeks later, Lauren is dead and police cars fill the driveway of their idyllic countryside home. As they question Sam, I sense he’s hiding something. Why won’t he look me in the eye? And who does he rush off to meet as soon as the police are gone?

Desperate, I do what every good mother would do: I let myself into Sam and Lauren’s bedroom. What I see, I will never be able to forget. My son’s beautiful new wife was hiding a dangerous secret. Can I clear my son’s name? And could my life be in danger now too?

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.

About the author

Sue Watson was a TV Producer at the BBC until she wrote her first book and was hooked.

Now a USA Today bestselling author, Sue explores the darker side of life, writing psychological thrillers with big twists. Originally from Manchester, she now lives with her family in leafy Worcestershire where much of her day is spent writing – and procrastinating. Her hobby is eating cake while watching diet and exercise programmes from the sofa, a skill she’s perfected after many years of practice.

My thoughts

‘The New Wife’ was such a fantastic mystery and it had me guessing until the end! I love all of Sue’s books and this one was no exception. What created a fabulous atmosphere was the location; the moors on Dartmoor. I imagined the scenes playing out within this sparse and baron backdrop, set amongst nature and not much else. I could picture this desolate house and the loneliness that might ensue.

I enjoyed the interactions and drama amongst the characters. I found Lauren’s family totally intriguing, and I loved some of the tensions that played out through dinner and visits. They certainly had me nail biting. As it was all told from Georgie’s perspective, I felt I got to know her character deeply and I liked being in her head. The actual writing style is like revisiting an old friend. Within moments, I’d slipped into the story, allowing the voice to carry me through the whole lot.

I can totally recommend ‘The New Wife.’ If you’re after an edge-of-your-seat psychological thriller that won’t allow you to put it down, this is it. It quickly bites and it doesn’t let go!

Dead Mercy by Noelle Holten – review.

Publication date: 19th November.

Description

A brutal murder…

When a burned body is found with its teeth missing, DC Maggie Jamieson discovers that the victim may be the husband of one of her probation colleagues.

A dark history…

As the body count rises, the team becomes increasingly baffled by how the victims could possibly be connected until a clue leads them to a historical case that was never prosecuted.

A terrible secret…

In order to catch the killer, Maggie must piece together what happened all those years ago before it’s too late.

About the author

Noelle Holten is an award-winning blogger at http://www.crimebookjunkie.co.uk. She is the PR & Social Media Manager for Bookouture, a leading digital publisher in the UK, and worked as a Senior Probation Officer for eighteen years, covering a variety of risk cases as well as working in a multi agency setting. She has three Hons BA’s – Philosophy, Sociology (Crime & Deviance) and Community Justice – and a Masters in Criminology. Noelle’s hobbies include reading, attending as many book festivals as she can afford and sharing the booklove via her blog.

Dead Inside – her debut novel with One More Chapter/Harper Collins UK is an international kindle bestseller and the start of a new series featuring DC Maggie Jamieson.

My thoughts

Well, ‘Dead Mercy’ was truly explosive in every way! This page turning book in the DC Maggie Jamieson series had me on the edge of my seat. Every dark crime gave me insight into what was happening, but only just. Those chapters were perfectly peppered with merely enough information. I devoured those chapters. They were chilling.

As for the investigation, it was top notch. I always love the team dynamics between Maggie, Kat and Dr Maloney. Maloney’s insight is enthralling.

I’d say this book is hard hitting and contains some very current themes. I won’t go into them in my review as I know discussing them would shout, SPOILER, but the content is emotive, heartbreaking and anger inducing. I found myself feeling all those things. And, I can say that the whole investigation had such an authentic and gritty feel to it. Reading a Noelle Holten book is like really being a part of the investigation team.

Another awesome and fantastic read!

I Can See You by MA Comley – review.

Description

A tortured mind. A deadly endgame. A city brought to its knees.

The bodies are stacking up for DI Sara Ramsey and her team. Resources are stretched thin, every clue leads to another dead end, and according to the evidence: the nightmare has only just begun.

Can Sara beat the killer at his own murderous game, or must she call his bluff and risk everything to win?

About the author

M A Comley is a KINDLE UNLIMITED ALL-STAR author as well as being a New York Times, USA Today, Amazon Top 20 bestselling author, she has topped the book charts on iBooks as a top 5 bestselling and reached #2 bestselling author on Barnes and Noble. Over two and a half million copies sold world wide. She’s a British author who moved to France in 2002, and that’s when she turned her hobby into a career.

When she’s not writing crime novels as well as caring for her elderly mother, she’s either reading or going on long walks with her rescue pup Labrador, Dex.

My thoughts

This is a slasher of an episode! What a sinister perpetrator. The killer in this book will almost certainly give a scare to any reader, and the shocks – they’re aplenty.

As always, I enjoyed the familiarity of the police team, especially Sara and Carla. I loved how their personal stories continued to develop throughout this novel. I always say how much I look forward to Lorraine’s scenes too and I was pleased that she had so much input.

This book is probably one of the most chilling of the series to date. I won’t say why as the spoilers would ruin the story. I felt for the team; big time. If you love a serial killer thriller with a huge helping of the macabre, then ‘I Can See You’ offers all that in abundance!

Push Back by James Marx – review.

Description

Framed for the kidnapping of his nephew and the murder of two cops, retired police detective and ex-US Ranger Dean Riley finds himself fighting a one-man war to save everything he holds dear.

In a race against time, Riley must call on all his skills, training and determination to rescue his nephew and clear his name.

Finding himself pitched against those he once trusted as colleagues, he uncovers a conspiracy of lies and corruption that threatens to overwhelm everyone in its path.

Can Riley stay alive long enough to track down his nephew?

How deep does the corruption go, and is there anyone left he can trust?

If you love action-packed thrillers in the vein of Jack Reacher and Jason Bourne, then you’ll love Push Back – a high octane read that will leave you on the edge of your seat.

About the author

Born in the late sixties and a confirmed petrolhead, James Marx started his working life as a motor vehicle engineer before making a curious switch into the soul-destroying world of IT and systems analysis where he wasted a couple of decades. Redundancy came as a merciful release, after which James joined a good friend in running a small videography and photography studio.

What the IT career did allow was the chance for James and his wife to enjoy some interesting holidays and experiences, such as holding crocodiles in Egypt, sailing a tall ship off New Zealand, almost driving a 4×4 off a Greek mountainside, walking with wolves and dancing on an active volcano.

Since pre-teen years James has revelled in the escapism of action and adventure novels, enjoys various collaborative storytelling role-playing games (like Dungeons and Dragons), and loves spending time writing.

James currently lives in suburban Worcestershire with his wife Anna and a couple of much loved but murderous tortie cats.

My thoughts

Ooh, this is a thoroughly gritty edge-of-your-seat read! Dean Riley is a fantastic protagonist, one who will have you screaming with tension as he bursts through every door. I loved how his peaceful retired life got rudely interrupted and his reactions are totally kapow!

The action doesn’t break. Right from the off, it hits you like a train and drags you with it, screaming wheels and all. The supporting cast add to the excitement. Claire, his sister, is gutsy and I love Dean’s dedication to finding her son. I felt every drop of his sweat and blood as I journeyed with Dean throughout the book. I loved, loved, loved the hospital scenes.

This book is full throttle. Whether it’s guns, fights, cars or chases, it’s a race against time at its best. If you can’t get enough of action, ‘Push Back’ is waiting for you to step right into the danger zone. Step in, don’t be shy!

The Safe Place by LA Larkin – review.

Description

The street outside the Troyer family home is quiet as they sleep peacefully inside. Breakfast bowls are neatly laid out on the dining table ready for the morning rush. But the strike of a match breaks the silence. As the house goes up in flames, smoke twists across a dawn this loving family will never see…

Jessie Lewis has been trying to rebuild her life ever since she accused her boyfriend of beating her and the whole town of Eagle Falls turned their backs. Hiding herself away in an isolated cabin in the woods, life is lonely, but she is safe. Until the Sheriff knocks at her door asking where she was the night an entire family was killed in their sleep. Jessie is innocent, but will anyone in this small town believe her?

Days later, Jessie’s only friend is killed in another house fire, and all fingers point to Jessie once again when she is found unconscious at the scene. Devastated, and with no one to turn to, she tries to remember the face she saw seconds before everything went blank. Combing the ashes for answers, she catches sight of an inscription she hasn’t seen since the accident that killed her father and left her with no one.

Jessie’s always had questions about the night her father died. Delving into the past, she finally learns the terrible secret her father was keeping about the town’s most trusted resident. If she’s right, nobody in Eagle Falls is safe. Can she catch this monster before any more innocent lives are taken?

About the author

L.A. Larkin’s crime-thrillers have won her fans all over the world. Described as a superb “chiller thriller” writer by Marie Claire magazine, and praised by the king of crime, Lee Child, for her “fast and immersive” thrillers, Louisa’s novels will keep you reading all night.

My thoughts

This book is explosive in every way possible! Every page has to be turned at speed as it’s jam packed with action.

I loved reading from Ruth and Jessie’s perspectives. We have the former FBI agent and the accused. The twists and turns had me aghast. At no point did I guess the outcome.

I found the descriptions of the forest fire as it slowly encroached on the town, haunting. I can only imagine how terrifying it must be to live in a house that is in such danger.

If you love huge doses of action and the fight to unravel fist clenching levels of injustice, then The Safe Place has to be your next read!

Unfollow Me by Charlotte Duckworth – review.

Description

You can’t stop watching her.

Violet Young is a hugely popular journalist-turned-mummy-influencer, with three children, a successful husband and a million subscribers on YouTube who tune in daily to watch her everyday life unfold.

Until the day she’s no longer there.

But one day she disappears from the online world – her entire social media presence deleted overnight, with no explanation. Has she simply decided that baring her life to all online is no longer a good idea, or has something more sinister happened to Violet?

But do you really know who Violet is?

Her fans are obsessed with finding out the truth, but their search quickly reveals a web of lies, betrayal, and shocking consequences…

About the author

Charlotte Duckworth is the USA Today bestselling author of The Rival, Unfollow Me, The Perfect Father and upcoming novel The Sanctuary. She started her career working as an interiors and lifestyle journalist, writing for a wide range of consumer magazines and websites. Alongside writing, she now runs her own website design studio. You can find out more on her website: charlotteduckworth.com.

My thoughts

This book is about obsession and how far it can take a person. It’s a warning about how much we share on social media, especially if we become popular. I was gripped to the mystery of what had happened to Violet. It had me totally absorbed when it came to Lily and Yvonne – her followers.

Lily had her own story and I found myself sympathising with her daily struggle. Yvonne had her problems too, but they were a little different. I hurriedly through it to find out where everything was going and, what a finale.

Unfollow Me is a brilliantly written and stunning psychological thriller. It totally got under my skin and given how popular influencers are, it felt so real. It had me asking questions like, what tips a person over from being a casual observer to practically being a stalker? Absolutely super read!

Witch by Mark Brownless – review.

Description

For Sale

We are delighted to present Ty Llun – Lake House – which is, once again, available.

A beautiful 400-year-old waterfront property in an idyllic Welsh village, the property has plenty of character and comes complete with the spirit of a long dead witch.

It’s the ideal place for a couple to move to, to start again, to try and forget the heartbreak of the past.

And we are sure that, this time, she will leave you in peace…

WITCH, the terrifying new horror novel from Mark Brownless, the author of The Shadow Man and The Hand of an Angel.

About the author

Mark Brownless lives and works in Carmarthen, West Wales, UK. He has been putting ideas on paper for some years now but only when the idea for THE HAND OF AN ANGEL came to him in the autumn of 2015 did he know he might be able to write a book. Mark likes to write about ordinary people being placed in extraordinary circumstances, is fascinated by unexplained phenomena, and enjoys merging thriller, science fiction and horror.

Mark’s new novel, The Shadow Man is a terrifying horror thriller imagining what would happen if you found out the memories of your childhood were untrue, and that something sinister was lurking behind the facade of your life. Could you face what had happened back then? Could you face The Shadow Man.

Mark is also fascinated by myths and legends such as those of Robin Hood and King Arthur. This has culminated in the release of his short story series, Locksley, a Robin Hood story.

My thoughts

Two words to sum up this book – well creepy! It took me back to my late teens when I used to read a lot of James Herbert. ‘Witch’ definitely had this vibe going on.

I love the fact that there was a historic story to tell. The things that were going on in the house and around the estate were simply terrifying. What had me gripped was the sadness of it all too. The story between Gabe and Tor as they moved for a new start really tugged at my heartstrings. This sadness made the perfect backdrop for what was to come.

If you love your horror and you love the haunted house genre, this is that and more. I’d say ‘Witch’ is a bang on Halloween choice. Get it now, scare yourself silly!

What She Did by Carla Kovach

If you think you did something terrible? Would you tell?

I live a small life: a one-bedroom apartment, clothes that help me blend into the background, just a few friends who don’t know my whole story. Everything has to be simple, ordered, in its place.

It gives me the illusion that I’m in control. Even though I know I never can be.

Twenty years ago, I lost everyone I ever loved, and they say it was all my fault.

I’ve tried to make sure I could never hurt anyone again, but it’s hard to live any kind of life without letting anyone get close to me.

And then come the sirens; the knock at the door.

If I’d done something terrible, I would know, wouldn’t I?
