The book started off exciting, a woman was murdered, and the picture of a psychologist Dr. Pippa Durrant was placed on the body. That led to the start of the investigation by DS Joe Swain.

The story arc caught my eye - a mother searching for her 16 year old daughter even after 2 years of her running away from home. Kate volunteered at the Message in a Bottle helpline center which passed on the message of the runaway to their parents, no questions asked. It was a safe place … Continue reading Book Review – Where The Missing Go by Emma Rowley #BookReview #BookBlogger #AmReading

Book Review – The Nanny by Gilly Macmillan #BookReview #BookBlogger #AmReading

Gilly Macmillan is simply brilliant!! This was my first book by her, and I was completely entranced by her writing to the point I took my kindle everywhere with me. I loved her characters, each one was so different. Wickedness flowed in the veins of some, helplessness and blindness in others. The emotions she evoked … Continue reading Book Review – The Nanny by Gilly Macmillan #BookReview #BookBlogger #AmReading

Book Review – What She Saw by Wendy Clarke # @bookouture #BookReview #BookBlogger #AmReading

What a cracker of a story, I loved reading it, a thrill captured my being and didn't let go, not that I wanted the book to release me. It was the perfect read for a dreary afternoon. The story had a winding route to a direct road. Leona stayed with boyfriend Scott and 15 year … Continue reading Book Review – What She Saw by Wendy Clarke # @bookouture #BookReview #BookBlogger #AmReading

Book Review – Justice for Belle by Didi Oviatt #BookReview #BookBlogger #AmReading

I am in quite a fix on how to write this review. The story goes thus, Ahnia, a has-been writer, meets Mac, a wannabe writer, and feels a strange attraction to him. They meet again where Mac proposes a preposterous challenge which arouses Ahnia's interest. Taking such a risk would make creative juices flow again, … Continue reading Book Review – Justice for Belle by Didi Oviatt #BookReview #BookBlogger #AmReading

Book Review – The Dare by Carol Wyer @carolewyer @bookouture #BookReview #BookBlogger #AmReading

Carol Wyer has done it again, raised the bar so high with this book that I wonder how she would top this up with her next.

Book Review – Picture of Innocence by T J Stimson #BookReview #BookBlogger #AmReading

This book chilled me deep into my core. I found myself trembling late at night when I finally finished the book.

A new mother with 3 children and no sleep with post natal depression and … Continue reading Book Review – Picture of Innocence by T J Stimson #BookReview #BookBlogger #AmReading

Book Review – Kill Code by Clive Fleury #BookReview #BookBlogger #AmReading

I like dystopian sci-fi, and if they read fast and furious then I am a fan. This book by Clive Fleury, at 130 pages had a complete story in it, yet leaving a chance for the next book. The main character Hogan was well depicted, who was once in army, then in police, and now … Continue reading Book Review – Kill Code by Clive Fleury #BookReview #BookBlogger #AmReading

Book Review – The Dark Game by Jonathan Janz #BookReview #BookBlogger #AmReading

Book Review – He Wrote In Red by Mary Stein Myers #BookReview #BookBlogger #AmReading

Generally, I know how to review my thrillers. But I am finding it very difficult to review this book. The plot didn't follow a direct path for me to have my thoughts pinned down in a crystal clear manner. I will try... Leo is a clinical psychologist for children and adolescents. She gets a referral … Continue reading Book Review – He Wrote In Red by Mary Stein Myers #BookReview #BookBlogger #AmReading

Book Review – Kalorama Road by E. Denise Billups #BookReview #BookBlogger #AmReading

This review is dedicated to author E. Denise Billups. Not because it is her book, well, partly so. But because she is a terrific human being, kind and gracious.

Book Review – Stolen Sister by Linda Huber @LindaHuber19 #BookReview #BookBlogger #AmReading

Those who have read the past few reviews on my blog know that I have been reading quite a few doozies as thrillers. Nothing really gripped me.

Book Review – The Woman at 46 Heath Street by Lesley Sanderson #BookReview #BookBlogger #AmReading

Happy Publication Day!! A structure of brick and mortar can raise so much passion in a person when it is the only home she has ever known.

Book Review – Heartlands by Kerry Watts #BookReview #BookBlogger #AmReading

If I take the book apart then this has a good arc of a lost teen and a murder mystery at its core. A disappearing child similar to what happened 20 years ago calls DI Jessie Blake and Dylan to investigate. Dual timelines give it another intriguing layer. There were few things that caught my … Continue reading Book Review – Heartlands by Kerry Watts #BookReview #BookBlogger #AmReading

Book Review – She’s Mine by Claire S. Lewis

Only 3 words come to mind when I sit down to write this review - I don't know... Well I know many things but I don't know what I have read...

Book Review – The Girl Across the Street by Vikki Patis #BookReview #BookBlogger #AmReading

There was only one line that came to my mind when I finished reading this book - Much Ado About Nothing!! This may not be entirely true, but the ending left me feeling bereft and stranded as if I was in a desert and the story was the mirage. Perhaps I hadn't understood the story.... … Continue reading Book Review – The Girl Across the Street by Vikki Patis #BookReview #BookBlogger #AmReading
