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!
This is the 5th instalment in the overall Romantic Suspense series by Karen Rose, but the 4th in the Chicago series. We’ve got some of the previous characters appearing as secondary in this one, such as Spinelli, Abe and Mia. And some brand new ones.
Everyone has a list of their favourite books of all time. Well maybe not a physical list, but definitely an idea floating around in their subconscious, of the books that they could read again and again, or that only needed reading once, but packed a massive punch. For those of us who have a passion for reading, the list of all time favourite reads can get a little long. But if you had to pick a top… 5… What would they be..? Here are our top 5 reads each and why we love them so much. Do you agree? What are your favourites? Let us know.
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.
1957: Within a year of arriving at an American airbase in Suffolk, the loving, law-abiding Delaney family is destroyed. Did they know something they weren’t allowed to know? Did they find something they weren’t supposed to find? Only one girl has the courage to question what really went on behind closed doors . . .
Hedy’s journey to the truth leads her to read a manuscript that her talented twin brother had started months before he died, a story inspired by an experience in the forest surrounding the airbase perimeter. Only through deciding to finish what her brother started does Hedy begin to piece together what happened to her family.
But would she have continued if she’d known then what she knows now?
Sometimes, it’s safer not to finish what you’ve started…
“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.
We LOVE reading other people’s round ups of their month of reading, so we thought we’d share what we’ve loved and not-so-loved this month in our bookish world. We’ve had a really good response so far to these monthly posts so Thank You x
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.
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….
In the mid-1980s the Snow White Killer terrorised the streets of Nashville, Tennessee. Then suddenly the murders stopped. A letter from the killer to the police stated that his work was done. Now four more bodies are found, marked with his fatal signature. The residents fear a madman has returned, decades later, to finish his sick fairy tale.
