Bring Me Back by B.A. Paris

Book review: Bring Me Back by B.A. Paris.


Unique, compelling and disturbing. This is an addictive read that I finished on the first day of my holiday. I really enjoyed the storytelling, the character descriptions and all the unexpected twists. Five stars from me!



Finn and Layla: young and in love, their whole lives ahead of them. Driving back from a holiday in France one night, Finn pulls in to a service station, leaving Layla alone in the car. When he returns, minutes later, Layla has vanished, never to be seen again. That’s the story Finn tells the police. It’s the truth – but not the whole truth.

Twelve years later, Finn has built a new life with Ellen, Layla’s sister, when he receives a phone call. Someone has seen Layla. But is it her – or someone pretending to be her? If it is her, what does she want? And what does she know about the night she disappeared?

The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith

Book review: The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith (J.K Rowling).


I loved the storytelling and the description of the characters as much as the plot in this compelling crime novel. I can't wait to read the other books in the series!



When a troubled model falls to her death from a snow-covered Mayfair balcony, it is assumed that she has committed suicide. However, her brother has his doubts, and calls in private investigator Cormoran Strike to look into the case.

Strike is a war veteran - wounded both physically and psychologically - and his life is in disarray. The case gives him a financial lifeline, but it comes at a personal cost: the more he delves into the young model's complex world, the darker things get - and the closer he gets to terrible danger.
