The Son – Jo Nesbo

The Son – Jo Nesbo

The Son, by Jo Nesbo, is a stand alone thriller from the writer of the popular Harry Hole series, set in Oslo, Norway.

In a nutshell this book tells the tale of Sonny, whose father was murdered when he was young, and his quest to avenge those responsible for the many wrongs in his life. Out of that nutshell this book has SO much going on! I’ll try and get through a lot of it here. When there are spoilers I will let you know before you get to them! 🙂

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!

Faithless – Karin Slaughter

Faithless – Karin Slaughter

I love this book.

It is the fifth in the Grant Series, following Dr Sara Linton and her husband, Police Chief Jeffrey Tolliver. This book starts with Sara and Jeffrey arguing (as usual) in the forest behind Sara’s parent’s house around the lake. Jeffrey’s past is catching up with him again, as he hears devastating news from the woman he cheated on Sara with. Whilst arguing, the pair come across a body buried in the ground beneath them.

Haze – Rebecca Crunden

Haze is the story of Erik and Eliza, and their enduring love for one another through many ups and downs over a period of 10 years or so, written by Rebecca Crunden. It was originally released in 2018, and I very much enjoyed reading this.


There are some supernatural elements and plenty of mystery and suspense in this book. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review and give it a solid 3.5 stars – rounded up to 4!

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.

Mini reviews: A Mixed Bag. The trapped girl – Robert Dugoni 3*. Violet – SJI Holliday 5*. The Night Stalker – Robert Bryndza 5*.

The trapped girl by Robert Dugoni

Goodreads synopsis

When a woman’s body is discovered submerged in a crab pot in the chilly waters of Puget Sound, Detective Tracy Crosswhite finds herself with a tough case to untangle. Before they can identify the killer, Tracy and her colleagues on the Seattle PD’s Violent Crimes Section must figure out who the victim is. Her autopsy, however, reveals she may have gone to great lengths to conceal her identity. So who was she running from?

After evidence surfaces that their Jane Doe may be a woman who suspiciously disappeared months earlier, Tracy is once again haunted by the memory of her sister’s unsolved murder. Dredging up details from the woman’s past leads to conflicting clues that only seem to muddy the investigation. As Tracy begins to uncover a twisted tale of brutal betrayal and desperate greed, she’ll find herself risking everything to confront a killer who won’t go down without a deadly fight. Once again, New York Times bestselling author Robert Dugoni delivers a taut, riveting thriller in the fourth installment of his acclaimed Tracy Crosswhite series.
