Book review: Missing Presumed by Susie Steiner. I read this book quite some time ago, but I still think about it from time to time. It has really stuck with me which is a good sign for any book. The mystery of the missing girl creates an interesting plot and the characters are engaging. I'm really looking forward to reading the other crime novels in the detective Manon Bradshaw series!
Good Me Bad Me by Ali Land is a dark thriller about Annie whose mother is a serial killer. While her mother is awaiting her trial, Annie is placed in a foster family, where she get’s a new sister and a new name. As the story unfolds the reader finds out more and more about Annie’s dark past and her secrets. It’s a gripping and unsettling read with an unexpected ending.
AN UNWANTED GUEST by SHARI LAPENA. The back of the book promises a vintage Agatha Christie read, and that is exactly what you get. I am a big fan of this genre, and loved this book. So clever, unputdownable and well plotted!
Book review: OUR HOUSE by LOUISE CANDLISH
I read this book in one weekend, just couldn’t put it down. Brilliant characters and plot and the ending took my breath away. I couldn’t start another book for a few days after reading 'Our House' as I needed some time to process the story.
SOMETHING IN THE WATER by CATHERINE STEADMAN. This is one of the best thrillers I have read this year (and I have read quite a few). It grabbed me from the first page and kept me guessing right til the end. A great beach read!
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.
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.
