Book Review: The Starter Wife – Nina Laurin ⭐️⭐️⭐️

I enjoy a good psychological thriller – I read enough of them! – but there was something about The Starter Wife that didn’t really gel for me. It took me two attempts to get into the story proper and looking back I think it was because the main narrator Claire is such a completely unlikeable…

Book Review: Now You See Her – Heidi Perks ****

Sometimes you pick up a book that you instantly want to start talking about. Now You See Her is that book. I can see this being a controversial book club pick all over the country this year. Every Mum or Dad that picks up their child’s friends and takes them to football/ballet/gymnastics etc. will be…

Book Review: The Snowman – Jo Nesbo ****

If you’ve been following Angelnet Reviews for a while you’ll already know that I like a good Scandi Noir to while away the dark winter evenings! The Snowman has just hit the big screen with a film adaptation starring Michael Fassbender and has done for snowmen what Tim Curry did for clowns back in the…

Book Review: All the Missing Girls – Megan Miranda ****

All the Missing Girls is Megan Miranda’s first book aimed at an adult audience. It is a tense psychological thriller with a difference. As it opens it sets the scene with a précis of events. Ten years ago an eighteen year old called Corinne vanished without a trace. Nicolette Farrell has returned home for the…

Book Review: Behind Closed Doors – B A Paris ***

UK Publishing Date: 11 Feb 2016. 352 pages. I was quite surprised when I just checked the number of pages for this review because Behind Closed Doors felt like quite a short book. In reality it isn’t it just keeps you turning the pages so quickly that it feels shorter than it is. Jack and…
