Review: Let Me Lie by Clare Mackintosh @claremackint0sh @LittleBrownUK

When I was offered the chance of a sneak peak of Clare Mackintosh’s latest release, Let Me Lie, I really couldn’t refuse. Since I first happened upon I Let You Go by accident I have been a big fan of Clare’s writing and to be honest, I can’t really believe that it’s been nearly two years since we got to read the fabulous I See You for the first time. You know I stil think about that book every time I take the underground. SO what did I think of this book? Well I’ll tell you just as soon as we’ve taken a look at what it’s all about.

LMLAbout the Book

Anna says it was murder.
They’re both wrong.

One year ago, Caroline Johnson chose to end her life brutally: a shocking suicide planned to match that of her husband just months before. Their daughter, Anna, has struggled to come to terms with their loss ever since.
Now with a young baby of her own, Anna misses her mother more than ever and starts to ask questions about her parents’ deaths. But by digging up the past, is she putting her future in danger? Sometimes it’s safer to let things lie . . .

The stunning, twisty new psychological thriller from number one bestseller Clare Mackintosh, author of I LET YOU GO and I SEE YOU.

Review: Lucky Ghost by Matthew Blakstad @mattblak @1stMondayCrime @HodderBooks

Okay so this review is either going to be very long or very short. Neither in a bad way, at least not from a book enjoyment point of view anyway. More from a totally absorbing and entertaining cyber-geekery perspective which means that I’m in way over my head here if I have a hope of sounding intelligent or articulate.

Some might argue situation normal then …

Let’s take a look at a the bookish stuff first huh? Continue reading “Review: Lucky Ghost by Matthew Blakstad @mattblak @1stMondayCrime @HodderBooks”

#BlogTour: Little Liar by Clare Boyd @ClareBoydClark @Bookouture

Today I’m delighted to be sharing my review of Little Liar the new release from Clare Boyd and Bookouture. Thanks to Bookouture for providing an advance copy of the book for review. I’ll be sharing my thoughts just as soon as we’ve taken a look at what the book is all about.

LLThe Official Book Blurb

The perfect family… or the perfect lie?

To the outside world, Gemma Bradley has it all – a doting husband, high-flying career and two delightful kids – but inside the four walls of her tastefully renovated home, she is a mother at her wits’ end who has given too many last warnings and counted to ten too many times.

When a child’s scream pierces the night, Gemma’s neighbour does what anyone would do: she calls the police. She wants to make sure that Rosie, the little girl next door, is safe.

Gemma knows she hasn’t done anything wrong, but the more she fights to defend the family she loves, the more her flawless life begins to crumble around her. Is the carefully guarded secret she’s been keeping suddenly in danger of breaking free? 

When Rosie disappears, Gemma thinks she only has herself to blame. That is, until she discovers that Rosie has been keeping dark secrets of her own in a pink plastic diary. 

Distraught and terrified, Gemma doesn’t know where to turn. The only thing she knows is that her daughter’s life is in danger…

Little Liar is a heart-in-your-mouth psychological thriller about the people we choose to trust and the secrets we keep behind closed doors. If you loved The Girl on the Train, Gone Girl or anything by B.A. Paris you’ll be totally and utterly gripped.

Festive Reads: Mr Men & Little Miss at Christmas – Roger Hargreaves

Now as a child, I was a massive fan of the Mr Men books as I’m sure many of you were too. I am that old, I can remember when Little Miss books were a ‘new and exciting concept’ really shaking up the Mr Men’s world. Yes – I’m ancient. Now when Mandie and I first started looking into doing a festive reads segment, we knew that Mr Men should probably feature somewhere. We figured Mr Snow was a safe bet. When I looked on Amazon though I was amazed by the sheer number of Mr Men and Little Miss Christmas books available. Needless to say, I was more than up for the challenge (?) of collecting and reading them, so here are just a few of the books available.
