One Missing Girl. Two Million Suspects.

Ruby is a vlogger, a rising star of YouTube and a heroine to millions of teenage girls.

And she’s missing . . .

But she’s an adult – nothing to worry about, surely?

Until the video’s uploaded . . .

Ruby, in the dirt, pleading for her life.

Enter Detective Inspector Kate Riley; the Met’s rising star and the head of a new team of investigators with the best resources money can buy. Among them, Detective Sergeant Zain Harris, the poster boy for multiracial policing. But can Kate wholly trust him – and more importantly, can she trust herself around him?

As hysteria builds amongst the press and Ruby’s millions of fans, Kate and her team are under pressure to get results, and fast, but as they soon discover, the world of YouTube vloggers and social media is much darker than anyone could have imagined.

And the videos keep coming . . .

My Thoughts:

I received an advanced copy of this book for an honest review. This story is about Ruby Day a YouTube star who gets kidnapped but it is not how it seems, the case is very fast moving and gripping. When we get to know more about Ruby we find her world is not as straight forward as one may think. You get to know a bit about the other characters too in the story. I really enjoyed this story and couldn’t believe it was the author’s debut novel. Brilliant.

It’s the perfect season to fall in love.

Amber Raey is working all the hours God sends as assistant to one of the country’s top fashion designers, and her boss is a complete nightmare. But Amber has big plans for her future so, for the time being, she just has to grin and bear it. And then opportunity comes knocking and suddenly she’s on the fast track to the top.

Amber adores her new life, especially as she’s falling in love for the first time too. But soon the glossy exterior starts to slip and Amber begins to wonder if she’s made the right decision entering this world.

Then a face from her past reappears and she finds herself in real trouble. With Christmas fast approaching, Amber is drifting further away from her loved ones. Can she get her life back on track before it’s too late for a merry Christmas?

My Thoughts:

This is my first Christmas book of this year and I was lucky enough to get an advanced copy of this book which came with a few Christmas goodies too. After seeing Vicky Pattison in the jungle and loving her I was keen to see what she would be like as an author.

Even though it is suppose to be a Christmas read only a small section is actually about it, which was a bit disappointing. I did think it was a nice lighthearted read, I loved seeing how good her friends were to her and also there were a few laughs in there too for good measure. This is an author I would read again though.

The Ice Beneath Her By Camilla Grebe

The Ice Beneath Her By Camilla Grebe

camilla-grebe
A young woman is found beheaded in an infamous business tycoon’s marble-lined hallway.

The businessman, scandal-ridden CEO of the retail chain Clothes & More, is missing without a trace.

But who is the dead woman? And who is the brutal killer who wielded the machete?

Rewind two months earlier to meet Emma Bohman, a sales assistant for Clothes & More, whose life is turned upside down by a chance encounter with Jesper Orre. Insisting that their love affair is kept secret, he shakes Emma’s world a second time when he suddenly leaves her with no explanation.

As frightening things begin to happen to Emma, she suspects Jesper is responsible. But why does he want to hurt her? And how far would he go to silence his secret lover?

My Thoughts:

I was given a copy of this book and absolutely loved it. This is Camilla’s debut novel and it is a very gripping read. With each chapter being told by a different person it should become confusing but it really doesn’t. The characters all have their personal issues to deal with and we find out more about each one as we head deeper into the story. I couldn’t put this book down. The ending was brilliant. I will be keeping my eye out for Camilla’s next book in the future.

Despite having a rule never to become involved with her boss, Sophia can’t deny how she finds him incredibly attractive.

My Thoughts:

This story is all about Sophia Nelson who returns home to begin a new job working as a tour guide at a house. Whilst she is there she meets Thomas Heaton who she discovers is a recluse and very lonely. I liked seeing how their friendship evolves. Then she finds out something and is torn between what to do. The story is well descriptive and intriguing. I enjoyed this story very much.

Dream a Little Dream By Giovanna Fletcher

Dream a Little Dream By Giovanna Fletcher

Sarah is doing just fine. Sure she’s been single for the last five years, and has to spend an uncomfortable amount of time around her ex-boyfriend, his perfect new girlfriend and all their mutual friends. And yes, her job as a PA to one of the most disgusting men in London is mind-numbingly tedious and her career is a constant disappointment to her mother. But it’s really okay. She’s happy (ish).

So it’s not surprising that when Sarah starts dreaming about a handsome stranger, she begins to look forward to falling asleep every night. Reality isn’t nearly as exciting. That is until her dream-stranger makes an unexpected real-life appearance, leaving Sarah questioning everything she thought she wanted.

Because no one ever really finds the person of their dreams… do they?

My Thoughts:

I really enjoy Giovanna Fletchers books. There is nothing like forgetting the days troubles and curling up with one of her books. There is a good pace through out and I like how her dreams are written in a different font. This is a very capturing read that you will just not want to put down. I loved it. Lets see if Giovanna can top this one.

Under a Pole Star By Stef Penney

Under a Pole Star By Stef Penney

This title will be released on November 3, 2016.

Flora Mackie first crossed the Arctic Circle at the age of twelve. In 1889, the whaler’s daughter from Dundee – dubbed by the press ‘The Snow Queen’ – sets out to become a scientist and explorer. She struggles to be taken seriously but determination and chance lead her back to northern Greenland at the head of a British expedition, despite the many who believe that a young woman has no place in this harsh world of men.

Geologist Jakob de Beyn was raised in Manhattan. Yearning for wider horizons, he joins a rival expedition, led by the furiously driven Lester Armitage. When Jakob and Flora’s paths cross, it is a fateful meeting.

All three become obsessed with the north, a place where violent extremes exist side by side: perpetual night and endless day; frozen seas and coastal meadows; heroism and lies. Armitage’s ruthless desire to be the true leader of polar discovery takes him and his men on a mission whose tragic outcome will reverberate for years to come.

Set against the stark, timeless beauty of northern Greenland, and fin-de-siècle New York and London, Under a Pole Star is a compelling look at the dark side of the ‘golden age’ of exploration, a study of the corrosive power of ambition, and an epic, incendiary love story. It shows that sometimes you have to travel to the furthest edge of the world in order to find your true place in it.

My Thoughts:

I received an advanced copy of this book from lovereading for an honest review. When I saw this book I was intrigued to read it as it sounded interesting. The amount of research that must of gone into this book is outstanding. It is a big book and at times I did feel like it could of been condensed down a bit. It was awe inspiring to read about Flora and the era though. I would give Stef Penney’s books a go though.
