Do you dare? – I Dare You Review

Sam Carrington is a name you may recognise here on my site – I’ve reviewed one of Sam Carrington’s books before – check out my review of The Missing Wife – and I’ve even interviewed Sam! But I’m here to talk about I Dare You – Sam Carrington’s latest book.

Not A Happy Birthday – The Birthday House Review

The Birthday House is a book that sounds – by title alone – that it’s going to be a fun little contemporary, but if you thought that, you’d be wrong. Dead wrong. See, part of me feels pretty bad for making that joke/pun because The Birthday House is a serious story with a serious history….

You Won’t Forget – Forget Me Not Review

You may recognise the name of Forget Me Not’s author – Claire Allan – because she has written a guest post for me before! If you want to know some of the ups and downs that come with being a writer, then go check that out! I’ve also reviewed Apple Of My Eye too! But…

Suicide or Murder? – Perfect Crime Review

Those of you who have been following my blog and reading adventures for a while will know that I’m no stranger to Helen Fields’s work. I’ve reviewed several books in the DI Callanach series, so naturally Perfect Crime was going to get reviewed too. Perfect Crime is the fifth book in the DI Callanach series, and whilst I…

Now THIS is a crime novel! – Keep Her Close Review

Keep Her Close is unlike a lot of recent police procedurals I’ve read recently. Let me tell you why! The first thing that struck me about Keep Her Close (other than the blurb of course) is that there’s a ‘permanent sticker’ as part of the cover that boasts ‘Rated five stars by real readers’. Usually this sends up…

Lost in translation – Beton Rouge Review

Beton Rouge is going to be one of those books that is going to be quite difficult for me to review because the issues I have with the book aren’t easy to lay blame to. What I mean by this is this: Beton Rouge is a book originally written in German, and I have read…

Test Your Moral Compass – A Version of the Truth Review

A Version of the Truth is an incredibly dark novel that is told via dual narrative timelines that flow expertly between 1991 and 2019.  I will admit that I was expecting this to be more of a psychological thriller based off of the blurb on the back of the book, but I loved what I got instead! Now that might…

Missing Children and High Stakes – In Safe Hands Review

In Safe Hands is the first of a new detective series following DCI Anna Tate and her team. Warning – this review actively contains some (not all) spoilers. Mostly to do with the fate of the children. The premise of the story is incredibly promising: 9 infants are dropped off at nursery one morning, but are…

Mother Knows Best – Apple Of My Eye Review

Apple of my Eye is a pretty good book that I can’t really get too into for risk of spoiling, but I’m going to do my best. Apple of my Eye is a tense read, and the pacing is great throughout – there are never moments where you feel like you’re being dragged along and…
