Written in blood – Chris Carter

Written in blood by Chris Carter

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.

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.

Into the Dark – Karen Rose

Into the Dark – Karen Rose

We’ve been waiting a while for Dani and Diesel’s story, and we finally have it, in Into the Dark – the 23rd in Karen Rose’s romantic suspense series. It’s out next month (Nov 2019 in UK).

I’ll start by saying that all of KR’s books are fantastic and it would be very unlikely for me to give them anything other than 5 stars.

Dani is a doctor. She’s part of the family KR has built in her universe, that includes Police, FBI, Therapists, Reporters, Volunteers – basically all good people with open hearts and selfless personalities. Diesel is a hacker that works for a newspaper, again part of this massive family we have come to know and love.

Author interview and review : The Retreat – Sherri Smith

The Retreat – Sherri Smith

It is difficult to write this review without giving spoilers away, but I shall try 🙂 I give this one 4* out of 5*. Actually 4.5* 🙂 It was out in the UK on 13th August 2019.

First of all we have got Katie. She is an ex-child actress, whose career ended when she was young, due to a tragic incident causing facial disfigurement. She riding on the somewhat waning fame of that early success, but finds herself a bit lost in the world. She’s currently living with her brother, or should I say, he is living with her. He looks out for her and keeps her safe, deals with all her problems etc. Unfortunately for Katie, her bro has a fiance called Ellie – who Katie is not so fond of. She’s the typical English rose – all sweet, and annoying, and floaty and happy. Katie instantly dislikes her.

The Woman in the Window – AJ Finn

40103618

The Woman in the Window by AJ Finn. This was sent to me by Harper Collins Publishing in early December. I’m a little late to the party as the hardback hit the shelves back at the beginning of the year. However, I’m glad I finally got round to this, as although I had some quibbles with it, by the end it was a good read, and is out in paperback on 27th December 2018.

What is it about? Well, Anna lives in her big, expensive house all by herself, since her husband and daughter left her. She doesn’t leave the house, as she is agoraphobic, and going along the lines of becoming an alcoholic too. Anna spends her days looking out of her windows at her neighbours, spying on what they are doing, and generally living her life through them. One day, Anna sees something criminal happen in one of her neighbours houses and that’s when her life becomes embroiled in this slow-burn, suck-you-in-by-the-end thriller!Read More »
