Book Review: Paper Ghosts – Julia Heaberlin ****

Back in 2015 Heaberlin had one of the hits of the year with the darkly sinister Black Eyed Susans. If you enjoyed her deeply immersive story you won’t be disappointed by Paper Ghosts. In fact my only real gripe with this book is with the cover. The UK publishers have chosen to go with another…

Book Review: Last Breath – Robert Bryndza *****

If you haven’t picked up any of Robert Bryndza’s other books in the Erika Foster series then stop right there and go get a copy of The Girl in the Ice. You don’t NEED to have read the other books to enjoy this one but they are so good that you really should! The body…

Book Review: Good Me Bad Me – Ali Land *****

It has been a long time since I’ve been affected by a book the way that I have with Good Me Bad Me. I finished it last night on the way home from work but I’ve had to mull it over and have a good think about it before I could commit my thoughts to…

Book Review: Lovegame – Tracy Wolff **

On paper this sounds like something that I would really love. Ian Sharpe is an ex FBI Behavioural Analysis Agent and now a full time writer concentrating on True Crime investigation books. One of his books has just been turned into a big Hollywood blockbuster starring the beautiful and elusive Veronica Romero. Ian is writing…

Book Review: Her Darkest Nightmare – Brenda Novak ****

This time last year I read a short novella that was a digital prequel to what sounded like a really interesting new series. It has been a long wait but finally the first proper book in the Hanover House series has been published. Her Darkest Nightmare takes up right from where Hanover House ended and…

Book Review: The Night Stalker by Robert Bryndza *****

One of the books that I was most excited by earlier this year was “The Girl in the Ice” which was the debut detective novel from Robert Bryndza and the first book in the Detective Erika Foster series. While you can read The Night Stalker as a stand-alone story I thoroughly recommend that you catch…

Book Review: The Obsession – Nora Roberts ****

UK Publishing Date: 14 Apr 2016. 464 pages The Obsession is the latest of Nora Roberts’ standalone novels. Although marketed as a romantic suspense novel it is a tough one to describe. Think Criminal Minds meets Grand Designs set in Twilight country. I did warn you. It’s complicated. Naomi Bowes is a couple of days…

Book Review: Hanover House by Brenda Novak ****

UK Publishing Date: 1 Sept 2015. 234 pages. “Hanover House” is a digital prequel to a new suspense series by Brenda Novak. At 234 pages it is described as a novella to set the scene for the rest of the Hanover House chronicles. As a teen Evelyn was terrorized by her High School sweetheart Jasper….

Book Review: Dark Room by Tom Becker ****

UK Publishing Date: 10 Sept 2015. 352 pages. Dark Room is the first Tom Becker novel that I’ve picked up. I didn’t have very high hopes when I started reading it. A teenage serial killer, with a love of photography? It had the capacity to be truly awful. Instead it was a thoroughly readable thriller…
