FAVOURITE BOOK OF THE YEAR. This was fantastic. I urge you to get a copy of this when it is released in August 2021.
I have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the third book in the Sacramento series, and I am so happy that I was given a chance to read this one before pub day.
Karen Rose is an absolute favourite of mine and I have all her books and have re-read them many times. Each year it’s torture waiting for the next instalment – I need to know what is going on with my favourite fictional family!
This is the 28th book in the Alex Cross series…. 28th! Only a really good series can last this long. The Alex Cross series of books, has lasted so long and stood the test of time due to its originality and excellent writing. You might imagine a police procedural/thriller would be feeling a little stale to read nowadays but this trope is 100% fresh anytime a new AC novel comes out. James Patterson writes with the confidence of longevity and masterful storytelling.

Written in blood is Chris Carter’s 11th book in the Robert Hunter series. I was kindly gifted a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. And I am delighted to say this book was amazing!
Robert Hunter works with the UVC unit in LA. He and his partner, Garcia, investigate Ultra Violent Crimes, which includes serial killers. They are put on the trail of a prolific serial killer when a pickpocket, Angela, steals the killers bag containing his murder diary. The diary details the previous 16 murders committed by the killer. Hunter and Garcia must catch the perpetrator before he can kill again and protect Angela from him.
Rico Stays is the third instalment in this thrilling series from Ed Duncan. Although, I’ve not read the other two in the series, I don’t think that hampered my enjoyment of this fast paced crime novel. Easily read as a standalone, this one gets a solid 4 stars from us here at The Beautiful Book Break.
The Shadow Friend is the second book by author Alex North. His first, The Whisper Man, was a really really excellent read, so I was so thrilled to get an early copy of North’s next offering. I wasn’t disappointed, and this one was another 5 star read!
Not entirely sure where to start… First of all this book was amazing, second of all I have so much to say and when I read this book I had no one to talk about it with!!! Third of all, this review is going to have spoilers in it. I will put a massive spoiler warning before I get to those bits though! 🙂
The Silent Wife is Karin Slaughter’s 20th book and it is a continuation of the Will Trent series. After a little run of standalones – Pieces of her, The Good Daughter – Karin gave us The Last Widow last year, and now The Silent Wife to give us our fill of Will and Sara. It is out next month – put June 25th in your calendar!
