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 – 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 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 🙂
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.
Yay I finished it, I won’t say I loved it ( yet), but I did really really enjoy it and could see this becoming a new favourite of mine in time – depending on the rest of the series and how it fairs on the re-read.
Firstly, this is not my normal type of book, in fact I don’t think I have even read any Terry Pratchet or Neil Gaiman before. I only picked this up to read after seeing the trailers for the new Amazon Prime series ‘Good Omens’ starring David Tennant and Michael Sheen and knew that I would have to read it before I could watch it. I am currently on episode 3 of 6 of the tv show and can’t wait to watch the last three episodes now that I have finished the book.
Fireproof is the tenth installment in the Maggie O’Dell series. It tells the story of a series of arsons that Maggie is tasked to profile and runs concurrently alongside the beginning of a case of a serial killer, killing people at rest stops along the highway.
If you’ve read the series before you’ll be glad to know that all our favourite characters are back. Agent Tully is joined with Maggie once again, to profile the arsonist and determine if he is causing the body count that seems out of place in the buildings being set fire to.
