Book review: The Fire Child by S. K. Tremayne

The Fire Child is another brilliant psychological thriller (I also loved The Ice Twins!) by S.K. Tremayne. I really liked the eerie surrounding of the Cornwall mines and the storytelling and characters are interesting and compelling.

 

Blurb:

IT TOOK ONLY SIX WORDS TO SHATTER HER DREAMS…

When Rachel marries handsome David and moves to a beautiful house in Cornwall, she gains wealth, love, and an affectionate stepson, Jamie.

But then Jamie’s behaviour changes, and her perfect life begins to unravel. He makes disturbing predictions, claiming to be haunted by the spectre of his late mother. As September slips away and December looms, Rachel grows increasingly suspicious of her husband – and begins to suspect there might be truth in Jamie’s words:

‘YOU WILL BE DEAD BY CHRISTMAS’

Author interview

This week I was interviewed for Qwerty Throughts.

 

Here is a summary:

Sara currently lives with her family on the south coast of Sweden, close to where she grew up.

She loves reading and feels that she has an overactive imagination. Just like many other book lovers, she had dreamed of writing a novel one day but couldn't get the time to do so. But she thought it's now or never. She started making up stories in her mind to keep it occupied when a lot of things were going on in her life. Today, she has published four thrillers in Swedish with a fifth on the way. One of them, "The Daughter", was published in English last year. The second novel, "The Wolf", is currently being translated to English as well. When not working on her books, she creates content for social media, websites, and magazines.

Book review: The Image of You by Adele Parks

THE IMAGE OF YOU by Adele Parks. This is a compelling story that kept me hooked from start to finish. I didn't love is as much as 'A stranger in my home', but it is still a very entertaining read that I can recommend to anyone who likes a thriller with a twist.

 

Blurb:

Anna and Zoe are twins. Identical in appearance, utterly different in personality, they share a bond so close that nothing - or no one - can rip them apart.

Until Anna meets charismatic Nick.

Anna is trusting, romantic and hopeful; she thinks Nick is perfect.

Zoe is daring, dangerous and extreme; she thinks Nick is a liar.

Zoe has seen Anna betrayed by men before. She'll stop at nothing to discover if Nick is as good as he seems.

Book review: Dark Retribution by B. R. Stateham

Book review: Dark Retribution by  B. R. Stateham.

 This is a fast-paced action-packed read. With a serial killer roaming the streets, leaving no evidence behind, and his sister-in-law the next likely victim, Artie Jones asks the assassin Smitty to help find the killer. I was distracted by the numerous spelling mistakes, grammatical errors etc, but if you enjoy a gritty thriller with many twists and turns you should give Dark Retribution by B. R. Stateham a go.

I received a free copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review

 

Blurb:

He’s desperate. He knows his sister-in-law is the next victim. And even though he’s a cop assigned to the team built to hunt the killer down and arrest him, they’ve had no luck finding him.

How does he save his sister-in-law?

Sometimes to fight evil, you must flirt with the devil. Sometimes you need a killer to find a killer.
