Say Goodbye by Karen Rose

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!

False Witness – Karin Slaughter

Published June 24th 2021|HarperCollins|ISBN0008303509

Now, this was a standalone from Ms Slaughter and I must say I have been waiting for this for a long time.

I, of course, need another Will and Sara in my life, but her standalones are just so gripping that I wait with just as much anticipation for them as I do the series’.

False Witness was amazing. Should I stop there? This review will generally just gush so be warned!!

Deadly Cross – James Patterson

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.

The Silent Wife – Karin Slaughter

The Silent Wife – Karin Slaughter

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!

Strangers – CL Taylor

Strangers by CL Taylor

Read it over a couple of days… With a newborn… Definitely 5 stars!

I didn’t get much reading done in Nov/Dec, but when CL Taylor put on Instagram that her new book Strangers was on NetGalley I hightailed it on over there and got my hands on it! 🙂

So with 3am feeds and sleepless nights, I got this one done in about 4 days – after a massive reading slump! That is how good it is.
