Review

I had the pleasure of reading one of this author’s books before and when she contacted me and offered me her new book, I did not have to think twice. It was a big yes from me, because I loved her writing style and the way she could capture my attention.

At first sight, you would say it’s a romantic novel and yes you are not wrong, but the author did not stop there. She added some suspense in the mix and the whole was just tasty. (Still licking my fingers while writing this review. 😉 )

So what do we have here?

  • a devastating opener that had me reaching for a tissue (or two)
  • a budding romance with a lot of ups and downs (I sometimes wanted to kick a certain person)
  • a few very devious people who obviously don’t stop at nothing when it means getting what they want (I definitely wanted so slap someone here)
  • great friends and a loving family who have your back whenever, where ever (loved them all)
  • and a happy ending (of course 🙂 )

I really loved, loved this story and I am very pleased to see the author decided to make it the first of a series which means the readers are in for more than one treat. 

Have you never read one of this author’s books? I would say please consider it, because if this is a genre you enjoy, you will fall in love with her books. 5 stars.

Thank you, Jo Lambert

Perfect Little Dolls by Karen Long / #Review #BooksOnTour @bookouture @KarenLongWriter

:

The little boy played with his toy trains in the bedroom, keeping quiet so as not to wake his mother. He stayed silent as he watched his window creaking open and heard the whisper from outside. A minute later, Tommy and the trains were gone.

An unrelenting heatwave sweeps the country and starts a fire which uncovers the charred remains of a young woman. But when DI Eleanor Raven attends the post-mortem it reveals some disturbing details—the girl was dead long before the fire, her body had been lovingly preserved before being dressed up, her hair perfectly arranged, and a lime-green scarf knotted around her neck.

With little evidence surviving the fire, Eleanor and her team have no solid leads. But back on duty after six months’ enforced leave, Eleanor is determined to prove herself fit for service, and she won’t accept that this case could prove impossible.

Following a tenuous link to an old missing-persons case, Eleanor discovers the poor woman’s identity: Giselle Baker was a young dancer at a local bar before she disappeared two years ago, leaving behind a worried roommate and, concealed amongst her things, a curious wooden carving of a snake. Before Eleanor can uncover the significance of the toy though, another woman goes missing, and then, a little boy… It seems that someone is collecting a family for themselves.

As Eleanor battles her own demons, she pushes herself to the limit to find the killer. But her fight to save his last innocent victim may become a battle to save herself…

Review

Why is a doll perfect? Well, that’s quite simple to explain. They do everything you say and stay forever young and beautiful.

Who does not like perfection? I think a lot of people do (the staying young and beautiful part at least 😉) and why not as long as it’s something you decide about. Once other people make the decision, it’s not done.

I have read quite some thrillers the last few years and I thought I almost met all the psychopaths, but oh no. Boy, was I wrong in thinking that. There is one thing though they all seem to have in common: something tragic happening in their youth that traumatized them to the core. I know it’s wrong what they are doing and they often disgust me, but honestly my heart bleeds for them too. It’s heart breaking how such innocent little creatures can be turned into such disturbed adults.

Detective Raven is a hard nut to crack. I have not read the first book in this series, but it’s crystal clear that she has been put through the mill. She is still fighting those demons, but that does not stop her from saving other people’s lives.

I know I have an inkling about what happened in part 1, but I am determined to read it as soon as possible too. I just have to find out what went on exactly.

Can the book be read as a stand alone? Yes, in my opinion it can, but if you want to follow the main characters’ lives, the best thing to do is to start at the beginning. (I know I should have taken my own advice, lol, but I don’t mind starting in the middle and going back 😉, but not everybody enjoys that)

In a nutshell, a great book. 5 stars

Thank you, Karen Long and Bookouture

The drowned woman – CJ Lyons / #Review #BooksOnTour @bookouture @cjlyonswriter

:

Jericho and Wright #2

Her eyes fluttered open as the first splash of frigid water crashed through the open window beside her. She shook her head, startled to be awake—to be alive. She was in her car, in the river. She blinked, tried to focus. And then it came back to her. He’d tried to kill her…

One month since she lost her husband, Dr Leah Wright knows it’s time to return to her family home. Though the crime scene tape and blood stains are gone, she will never feel safe with her daughter there again. Receiving a call from Detective Luka Jericho to assist with a police investigation is a welcome distraction, until she sees the scene: a wife dead, another family ripped apart.

As Leah is the new head of the Crisis Intervention Center, Luka knows she can help him speak to the victim’s traumatized husband, who he suspects might have had something to do with his wife’s death. But when Leah interviews the woman who lives across the hall, they uncover evidence of a serial killer in their rural Pennsylvania town. The same person who claims responsibility for drowning Luka’s fiancée seventeen years ago…

With danger closer to home than ever before, Leah realises that to find the killer they may need to dig into Luka’s past. But the killer is already taunting Luka, promising to kill again. Is it already too late to save another innocent life?

Review

Are you ready to dive into this book? I certainly was, because I totally loved the first one of the series. So, ready, steady, go!

Luka as well as Leah are damaged souls. They both are still struggling with dramatic events from their past, but they never hesitate to put their pain aside and jump in to help other people.

Miss Ruby and Emily are birds of a feather without the slightest doubt. Although the sassiness seemed to have skipped a generation, I have the feeling that Emily received a double dose. LOL. You have to love them both. They know what they want and go for it. They know who and what they love and protect them with everything they have got. Both also went through a lot already and that’s maybe what has turned them into the personalities they are now.

A great story based on a disturbed mind with all its consequences. How one sentence can hurt, but will be shrugged off by most people, it will totally make others go crazy… 5 stars.

Thank you, C.J. Lyons and Bookouture

Escape to the Little Chateau by Marie Laval / #Review @ChocLituk @marielaval1

Will Amy’s dreams of a Provençal escape come true? There are many reasons Amy Carter is determined to make Bellefontaine, her farmhouse hotel in the French countryside, a success. Of course, there’s the time and money she’s put in to making it beautiful, but she also has something to prove – particularly to people like Fabien Coste.

Fabien is the owner of the nearby château, and he might just be the most arrogant, patronising man Amy has ever met … unfortunately, he’s also the most handsome.

But as rumours circulate in the local community and secrets about the old farmhouse begin to reveal themselves, Amy quickly sees the less idyllic side of life at Bellefontaine. Could Fabien be the man to help prevent her Provençal dream from turning into a nightmare?

My review

This author’s books are a mixture of some delicious things that result in a great book.

She takes a pinch history, adds a measure of suspense and pours a tasty romantic sauce over it. Mmmm, it makes you smacking your lips and your eyes glued to the pages. 

But often in history things were not always very bright and cozy. Many times horrible things took place and some people want to keep those traditions and beliefs alive. To do that though, others have to suffer and how.

Things people do for money and religion are not the loveliest ones. On the contrary. Greed and power more than once take over from common sense. 

Who will take the upper hand? Will the good ones save the day or will the bad ones succeed this time?

A wonderful story that kept me entertained from the very beginning until the very last word. More, please. 🙂 5 stars, no doubt about that.

Thank you, Marie Laval and Choc Lit

But then she hears the rumor that his supposed mistress is pregnant and she is shaken to the core. With Alice’s unexpected support, Gina must face up to the secrets within her marriage, and do whatever she can to protect the people she loves…

 

 

Review

When I read a book that is part of a series, I am always looking forward to seeing the main characters again. I have to say that the link was not strong enough for me between the two stories. That is personal of course and it does not change the fact that I liked this story a lot too.

The author treats us to a whole lot of lies, deceit, heartache but love plays an important role too. 

Sometimes there were a bit too many details which slowed the pace down, but the last part of the book was really great and made up for it.

I liked the first book more, but this was more than worth reading as well. 4 stars.

Thank you, Cecilia Lyra and Bookouture.

Review

This is a funny story where life is seen through the eyes of a dog. He compares different aspects and tries to understand those strange creatures called humans. There are a lot of mysteries he has to find an answer to.

The banter between Mia and Dad is also hilarious and it’s great to see them blossom again after the tragedy they were confronted with. 

Once you connect with a dog, there is a bond that will never break. You stick together through thick and thin. No matter what happens, you are friends for life and love each other unconditionally. A man’s best friend? A dog, without a doubt!

This book should come with a warning. Make sure you are ready to get on this roller coaster of emotions and keep a few tissues handy. You will need them for sure. 

A fluently written story that is a must read for every dog lover. 5 stars.

Thank you, Steve N. Lee

The Next Widow by C.J. Lyons / #Review #BooksOnTour @bookouture @cjlyonswriter

 

 

Jericho and Wright

In the distance Leah heard sirens. She ignored them. Right now, her daughter needed her and Emily was just out of reach, curled up under the bed, her eyes closed, desperately shaking. Leah did the only thing any mother would do. She crawled through the blood to get to her daughter.

Dr Leah Wright returned to her childhood home in rural Pennsylvania with her husband to find peace and quiet, start afresh and raise her six-year-old daughter Emily. But when she gets home one dark winter night, clutching roses in her hand, she finds her daughter huddled under her bed and her husband’s blood all over the floor…

When Detective Luka Jericho is called to investigate, he’s shocked to learn that the killer left a witness behind – the victim’s young daughter. The scene is a painful reminder of his fiancé’s unsolved death, and he is desperate to find out what Emily saw that night. He knows that the killer could still be out there, waiting to strike again.

But growing up, Leah learned the hard way that the only person she could rely on was herself. And it’s not until she and Emily are attacked again that she realizes just how close the killer is. Can she trust Luka to keep her daughter safe?

 

 

Review

My first book by this author and I was hooked.

It’s very clear she knows her way in the medical world, because of how she describes certain scenes and I like that a lot.

It’s true that the main character Leah does not always make the best decisions, but let’s face it: if she would have, we would have ended up with a very thin book. 🙂 We also may not forget that she was traumatized, afraid and I guess you don’t have all your brain cells in the right place during those times.

I am so happy, because I had figured out who was the culprit. The reason why they did what they did only became clear at the end. There were little pieces that started fitting together but the big revelation was rather shocking and very good indeed.

A great start to a new series. Can’t wait to read part 2. 5 stars

Thank you, C.J. Lyons and Bookouture

The Sunset Sisters by Cecilia Lyra / #Review #BooksOnTour @bookouture @ceciliaclyra

 

 

The Sisterhood Series #1

Two sisters. A surprising inheritance. A summer that changes everything.

As children, half-sisters Cassie and Julie were nearly inseparable, bonded through happy, lazy summers playing barefoot in the surf and sleeping out on the porch of their grandmother’s Hamptons beach house. Though from wildly different backgrounds, each magical summer the girls were as close as only best friends, accomplices, sisters can be. But they haven’t spoken in nearly fifteen years—not since the funeral of Cassie’s mother—and now there is only resentment and painful memories between them.

Successful and self-contained, Cassie is shocked to learn the requirements of their Nana’s will—that she and Julie spend one final summer together in the Hamptons house in order to inherit. Cassie agrees reluctantly, she needs an excuse to leave Boston and give the growing rumors about her personal life a chance to die down.

And for Julie, who is discovering too late the cracks in her marriage, it is the chance to repair at least one damaged relationship. But for the two sisters to regain what they had, they will have to finally confront what happened the night Cassie lost her mother. With their Nana’s wisdom guiding the way, could this summer bring painful discoveries, and a new direction, for both sisters?

 

 

Review

There are different ways people can be bound together: love, friendship, family… and money.

When you rather fell in love with someone’s bank account then with the person who owns it, heartbreak will be on the menu. You stay with that person but you will look for love elsewhere. Not many people choose poverty over money even if it means being with the one you truely love.

How many people do you hurt in the process especially when also kids are involved? And when you look into your heart, are you really happy living a double life, being loved by some and hated by others, loving some and hating others? Maybe in the beginning yes, but when everything starts crumbling down, you are left with nothing but some material things. Was it worth all this hassle, these fights, this pain? Clocks are made to move forward. There is no turning back.

An emotional story about love, betrayal and secrets and where the cheater gets what he deserves. 4 stars

Thank you, Cecilia Lyra and Bookouture.

Can You See Her? by S.E. Lynes / #Review #BooksOnTour @bookouture @SELynesAuthor

 

 

Rachel Ryder doesn’t understand how her life has changed so completely. When she was younger, heads would turn when she walked into a room. Her children needed her; her husband adored her.

But somehow the years wore that all away. She was so busy raising her children, looking after her parents… She can barely remember the woman she used to be, the one whose husband told her she was out of his league. The woman she is now just does the laundry and makes the dinner, and can walk into a room without anyone knowing she’s there.

She knows that she hated feeling invisible. She knows that she thought: what would it take for you to see me again?

And now she’s worried that she did something terrible. Because she’s sitting in a room, being asked whether she killed someone.

When no-one is watching, you can get away with anything…

 

 

Review

Do you know the feeling? Everybody expects you to do everything for them, but the tiniest thing you ask is ignored. People either don’t look at you or don’t even notice you and when you think that someone is going to look you in the eyes, they don’t. They look through you or over your shoulder.

Being invisible might sound like a great superpower to have, but in stead of feeling like a new super hero, you feel lonely, alone and very sad.

If you can’t find the warmth you crave within your circle of family and friends, the only thing left to do is wandering the streets and befriend strangers.

You are living in a dream at night, but when morning comes, the nightmares start …

A good story that keeps you hesitating: to be or not to be the killer …???

The first half was very confusing (in a good way), the second half was full of more confusion and fortunately also full of revelations. 4 stars.

Thank you, S.E. Lynes and Bookouture

Chloe – Lost Girl by Dan Laughey / #Review @HenryRoiPR @danlaughey

Carl Sant Murder Mysteries, #1

A missing student. A gunned-down detective. A woman in fear for her life. All three are connected somehow.

Detective Inspector Carl Sant and his fellow officers get on the case. But what links the disappearance of a university student, the death of an off-duty police sergeant, and a professor reluctant to help them solve the case?

Their only clue is a sequence of numbers, etched by the police sergeant Dryden on a misty window moments before he breathed his last. Soon it becomes clear that Dryden’s clue has brought the past and present into a head-on collision with the very heart of Sant’s profession.

Racing against time, D.I. Sant must find out what’s behind the mysterious events – before the bodies start piling up.

 

 

My Review

The start of this book is packed to the rafters with action. A lot of things happening and at first sight they seem totally independent.

Little by little the police suspects there is a connection, but which one? It certainly is deeply hidden because they don’t really seem to make head or tails of this link.

What does the mysterious clue mean? Who is that woman and more importantly, where is Chloe?

This will all be revealed, but not in this part. The mystery will remain hidden a bit longer.

It really contains a captivating case or cases, but sometimes there were some details that desctracted me and the story got lost a bit. Fortunately it picked up later again at full speed. If you are into books with complicated cases and you are patient, this is a must read for you. 4 stars.

Thank you, Dan Laughey and Henry Roi.

 

About the author 

Dan Laughey is a lecturer at Leeds Beckett University where he teaches a course called ‘Youth, Crime and Culture’ among other things. He has written several books on the subject including Music and Youth Culture, based on his PhD in Sociology at Salford University. He also holds a BA in English from Manchester Metropolitan University and an MA in Communications Studies from the University of Leeds.

Dan was born in Otley and bred in Ilkley, West Yorkshire, a hop and a skip away from the Leeds setting of his Chloe novels.

His crime writing was purely academic to begin with. He’s written about media violence and tackled the age-old concern about television and video games influencing patterns of antisocial behaviour in society. After years of research and theoretical scrutiny, he still hasn’t cracked that particular nut.

He’s also written about the role of CCTV and surveillance in today’s Big Brother world, the sometimes fraught relationship between rap and juvenile crime, football hooliganism, and the sociocultural legacy of Britain’s most notorious serial killer – the Yorkshire Ripper.

All in all, Dan’s work has been translated into four languages: French, Hebrew, Korean and Turkish. He has presented guest lectures at international conferences and appeared on BBC Radio and ITV News in addition to providing expert commentary for The Guardian and The Daily Telegraph.
