The Last Widow – Karin Slaughter

The Last Widow – Karin Slaughter

Karin Slaughter fans have been waiting a long time for this book. The Last Widow is the 9th book in the Will Trent series. Last time we saw Will, was in The Kept Woman back in 2017. Well, it was definitely worth the wait- and you can see why it took so long (apart from Slaughter writing two stand alone novels in the mean time). The research for this book must have taken an insanely long time. It is so very detailed. I get super excited when a new Slaughter book is announced, so it is no surprise that I gave this one 5 stars. Here’s what I thought:

A Faint Cold Fear – Karin Slaughter

A Faint Cold Fear – Karin Slaughter

This is the third book in the Grant County series by Karin Slaughter. We catch up with Sara, Jeffrey and Lena and of course there’s a death in town.

I’ve read this book before and loved it back then, as much as now. It’s not the best in the series, but that in no way detracts from the awesomeness of Sara and Jeffrey’s case solving skills. Karin writes this like the rest of her books, with suspense, gore and mystery. It isn’t for the faint hearted – like nearly all her books – they are graphic and bloody. 🙂

Devil’s Daughter by Lisa Kleypas

“The book was falling… I was reaching for it, and …. your lips were in the way” – I loved this line, it made me laugh so much.

Ah the joy of buying random books from Amazon for my Kindle. I saw this book initially on Goodreads and thought ah well, give it a go. I downloaded the sample chapter and had to download the rest of the book immediately. Now when I say I had to download immediately it was more to do with me being intrigued as to what was actually going on.

Complexion Perfection by Kate Somerville

Two of my favourite things in one: It’s a book… on beauty!

I discovered Kate Somerville last summer when her products launched in the UK on Cult Beauty and around the same time she was a guest on the Oraccle of Skincare, Caroline Hirons YouTube channel, and it was in this video that Kate’s book ‘Complexion Perfection’ was mentioned. As someone who has always had a soft spot for fashion/ beauty/ lifestyle books I knew that I had to give this a go.

Mini reviews: A mixed bag of 3* and 5*. This is going to hurt – Adam Kay 3*. Agatha Raisin and the Deadly Dance – MC Beaton 3*. SEAL Camp – Suzanne Brockmann 5*.

This is Going to Hurt by Adam Kay

Goodreads synopsis

Adam Kay was a junior doctor from 2004 until 2010, before a devastating experience on a ward caused him to reconsider his future. He kept a diary throughout his training, and This Is Going to Hurt intersperses tales from the front line of the NHS with reflections on the current crisis. The result is a first-hand account of life as a junior doctor in all its joy, pain, sacrifice and maddening bureaucracy, and a love letter to those who might at any moment be holding our lives in their hands.

One Summer In Paris – Sarah Morgan

Sarah Morgan is the author of the Snow Crystal Trilogy, a series of books that I read every Christmas because they are just such heartwarming fab reads. When I saw that One Summer in Paris was coming out I thought I’d give it a go, see if her summer offering was as good as the festive fayre I favour from her.

This review contains spoilers, so be warned, don’t read ahead if you don’t want to know a pretty big plot point….
