Nothing to Fear – Karen Rose

Nothing to Fear – Karen Rose

Nothing to Fear is the 4th instalment in the romantic suspense series from Karen Rose, and it is also the 3rd in the Chicago series. 

We have got the usual mix of murder, sex, violence and passion. Karen Rose is just the best at writing grisly murder with blood and horror, then on the next page giving you steamy hot sex. There’s never a dull moment in any of her books, with something going on with every page turn. We have all the regular characters that appear throughout the series, which makes it so easy to read.

My Oxford Year by Julia Whelan or Kate’s Love Letter to Oxford.

My Oxford Year by Julia Whelan

Confession time –  I actually started reading this on my kindle app one rainy Friday at work, while my job is very full on and frustrating at times there are other times when I can get away with sipping a Costa Hot Choc while reading my kindle app, so long as I look like I am busy –  just ask one of my colleagues who managed to read a whole book for book club on her app once 🙂

Into the Dark – Karen Rose

Into the Dark – Karen Rose

We’ve been waiting a while for Dani and Diesel’s story, and we finally have it, in Into the Dark – the 23rd in Karen Rose’s romantic suspense series. It’s out next month (Nov 2019 in UK).

I’ll start by saying that all of KR’s books are fantastic and it would be very unlikely for me to give them anything other than 5 stars.

Dani is a doctor. She’s part of the family KR has built in her universe, that includes Police, FBI, Therapists, Reporters, Volunteers – basically all good people with open hearts and selfless personalities. Diesel is a hacker that works for a newspaper, again part of this massive family we have come to know and love.

Indelible – Karin Slaughter

Indelible – Karin Slaughter

Indelible – Grant county series No. 4 – by Karin Slaughter.

This is a good place to start if you don’t start at the beginning of the series. (I don’t know why you wouldn’t want to read them all in order though, they are all so fab!) It is kind of the origin story for Sara and Jeffrey and tells of the very early part of their relationship and how that has shaped the dynamic of their future relationship. Once you’ve read this, you can understand more about the present day Sara and Jeffrey.

The Nanny – Melissa Nathan

The Nanny – Melissa Nathan

The Nanny by Melissa Nathan is one of my all time favourite books! 


Now, if anyone knows me, then they know that my genre of reading material is thriller, crime, mystery…. not fluffy rom com books about romance and girly stuff. But I read this book back when I was an early teenager and it has just stuck with me ever since. I have read it a bunch of times and each time I laugh out loud at bits, I get anxious about certain bits, and I get angry at other bits. A book must be good to get these reactions from me, when I’ve read it so many times! I’ve just had to buy a new copy as mine is falling apart – of course the original will sit pride of place on my favourites book shelf from now on 🙂

Author interview and review : The Retreat – Sherri Smith

The Retreat – Sherri Smith

It is difficult to write this review without giving spoilers away, but I shall try 🙂 I give this one 4* out of 5*. Actually 4.5* 🙂 It was out in the UK on 13th August 2019.

First of all we have got Katie. She is an ex-child actress, whose career ended when she was young, due to a tragic incident causing facial disfigurement. She riding on the somewhat waning fame of that early success, but finds herself a bit lost in the world. She’s currently living with her brother, or should I say, he is living with her. He looks out for her and keeps her safe, deals with all her problems etc. Unfortunately for Katie, her bro has a fiance called Ellie – who Katie is not so fond of. She’s the typical English rose – all sweet, and annoying, and floaty and happy. Katie instantly dislikes her.
