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!!

The Sanatorium by Sarah Pearse

This was great. Easily one of my favourite reads of the year so far. I couldn’t have been happier with this book.

I picked it up after seeing a recommendation online, and then hearing about it everywhere! I was on a book buying ban at the time so I had to wait to actually get my hands on a copy and that wait was terrible 🙂 But I got the book and I’m really glad I did. It was fantastic. Pick this one up for a thrilling read that will keep you guessing until the end.

Kill The Father – Sandrone Dazieri

Published August 10th 2017 by Simon & Schuster

AMAZING.

I don’t really know what to say about this one other than that it is a fabulous book and I can’t wait to read the rest of the series!

Deputy Captain Colomba Caselli is tasked with covertly investigating a child abduction case by her boss Captain Rovere. The case has been pretty much closed by the investigating magistrate and so Caselli has to look into it on the down low as a favour to Rovere. He tells her to bring in a man he knows has some experience with child abduction, being ‘The Boy In The Silo’ – Dante Torre.

Eeny Meeny – MJ Arlidge

Published May 8th 2014 by Penguin UK| ISBN1405914874 (ISBN13: 9781405914871)

I was blown away by this one. I kept stopping reading to make it last longer.

My favourite books are thrillers – and my favourite sub genre of this, is a good police procedural. I love a gritty nuanced detective to get to know and a difficult case to solve, preferably with a serial killer at the helm. Eeny Meeny had this, and more!

The Crucifix Killer – Chris Carter

Simon & Schuster Ltd|ISBN1471128210|2009

Chris Carter was a new author to me when I bought this book. I bought it based on the blurb and the cover. I am NEVER ashamed to say that I buy a book based on it’s cover, and I generally find that I can’t go wrong if I have been drawn in this way.

I like to read a series from the start, so if I know that I am likely to enjoy a book then I won’t read it until I can start from the beginning. Luckily for me, this one was number one, so I was all set to go!

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.
