He Said She Said By Erin Kelly

In the hushed aftermath of a total eclipse, Laura witnesses a brutal attack. She and her boyfriend Kit call the police, and in that moment, four lives change forever.

Fifteen years on, Laura and Kit live in fear.

And while Laura knows she was right to speak out, she also knows that you can never see the whole picture: something is always hidden . . . something she never could have guessed.

My Thoughts:

I have never read any books by this author before and the plot looked interesting so I thought I would give it a go and I am really glad I did. It has suspense through out so you never really know what will happen between the pages. I found it gripping and a real compulsive read. Now I really want to read more of this author’s books.

Where Has Mummy Gone? By Cathy Glass

Where Has Mummy Gone? By Cathy Glass

where has mummy.jpg

The true story of Melody, aged 8, the last of five siblings to be taken from her drug dependent single mother and brought into care.

When Cathy is told about Melody’s terrible childhood, she is sure she’s heard it all before. But it isn’t long before she feels there is more going on than she or the social services are aware of. Although Melody is angry at having to leave her mother, as many children coming into care are, she also worries about her obsessively – far more than is usual. Amanda, Melody’s mother, is also angry and takes it out on Cathy at contact, which again is something Cathy has experienced before. Yet there is a lost and vulnerable look about Amanda, and Cathy starts to see why Melody worries about her and feels she needs looking after.

When Amanda misses contact, it is assumed she has forgotten, but nothing could have been further from the truth…

My Thoughts:

I am a big fan of Cathy Glass books. They never fail to disappoint and bring a tear to my eye. This story we find out about Melody and what her and her mum have been through. There is more to the story than meets the eye and Cathy as she does best looks after Melody and its nice to see their relationship develop. Already looking forward to the next one.

The Cottage on Sunshine Beach By Holly Martin

The Cottage on Sunshine Beach By Holly Martin

holly martin cottage

Melody Rosewood loves her new home in idyllic Sandcastle Bay. The beautiful little cottage on the edge of Sunshine Beach, with its bright yellow door and view of the sea has captured her heart. And she loves being close by to her family and best friend Tori Graham.

Life by the sea is pretty much perfect, there’s just one thing missing…

Gorgeous Jamie Jackson, with his cheeky grin and adorable puppy, works as a sculptor opposite Melody’s jewellery shop. From the moment he and Melody meet sparks fly. But despite their instant attraction, a past heartache is holding Jamie back.

As Melody starts to make a life for herself in the close-knit, quirky seaside community, she realises Jamie could be the one for her. But as the two of them take a chance on romance, it’s one dating disaster after another. Are they destined to always be just good friends?

Or will Melody finally find her happily-ever-after in Sandcastle Bay?

My Thoughts:

Here we meet up with old friends if you have read Holly’s previous novel called The Holiday Cottage by the sea. I really enjoyed coming back to Sandcastle Beach and I can definitely see why Melody loves it so much. Even though this is Melody’s story we see other characters pop up and we find out about their lives too. Romance, seaside, what more could you want? I loved this one and cannot wait until the next one is out.

sarra manning.jpg

Becky Sharp has big dreams and no connections. Determined to swap the gutters of Soho for the glamorous, exclusive world behind the velvet rope, Becky will do anything to achieve fame, riches and status.

Whether it’s seducing society’s most eligible bachelors, or befriending silly debutantes and rich old ladies, Becky Sharp is destined for great things. Because it might be tough at the top but it’s worse at the bottom.

From London to Paris and beyond, Becky Sharp is going places – so get the hell out of her way…

My Thoughts:

What we find here is a very clever way of updating a classic novel which is really rather funny. It is an easy to read story with a reality show, scandal, revenge and lies all packed in. I haven’t actually read the classic but I will be now after reading this book has inspired me too.

Cryptofauna By Patrick Canning

Cryptofauna By Patrick Canning

crypto.jpg

Could be his job as a janitor at an insane asylum, could be the meaninglessness of existence, could be the unwanted cilantro on his tacos. Whatever the reason, Jim has elected to commit suicide. But before he can do the deed, a mysterious resident at work equips him with a dog and a bag of ash, and throws him into a secret game known as Cryptofauna. Cryptofauna is played by Operators, persons of special abilities who battle one another to influence important events around the world.

To become an Operator, Jim must survive being stranded in the Pacific Ocean, pass a bizarre examination by leprous French monks, and pluck the existential splinter from his troubled soul. If there’s time, he must also stop a rival player from ending all life on the planet.

Underwater Norwegian lairs, obsession with a decent pair of socks, and shapeshifting animals obsessed with AM radio all make up the strange world of Cryptofauna, which might help Jim discover a reason to live, assuming he doesn’t die in the process.

My Thoughts:

A little different to what I would normally read but the plot sounded intriguing and mysterious. We follow Jim who is bored with his job so thinks about doing something rather drastic but before he does he meets someone and they throw him into a world of gaming. It is a really interesting read with a original plot line. I would love to read more by this author.

Ellen By Coral McCallum

Ellen By Coral McCallum

coral.jpg

Ellen “I vowed to prove them wrong.” Tailz “I believe this is about where we got to before.” Luke “You mess this up and you’re history! Hear me?” Nana “You should be soulmates not lovers.”

Emotions run high when Ellen Lloyd steps up to the mic as the new vocalist for rock band After Life. Will she prove to be heaven sent or will her arrival see the band descend into the depths of hell?

Ellen is a standalone contemporary rock star romance but is also a spin off from the Silver Lake series by the same author.

My Thoughts:

I really enjoy Coral’s stories and I think she is a very talented author. This book is addictive and I really didn’t want to put it down. Ellen is the main character and she manages to come back to the life that she loved after a tragedy. I think it is written extremely well that I can’t wait till the next book.

Perfect Silence (A DI Callanach Crime Thriller, Book 4) By Helen Fields

Perfect Silence (A DI Callanach Crime Thriller, Book 4) By Helen Fields

perfect silence.jpg

When silence falls, who will hear their cries?

The body of a young girl is found dumped on the roadside on the outskirts of Edinburgh. When pathologists examine the remains, they make a gruesome discovery: the silhouette of a doll carved in the victim’s skin.

DCI Ava Turner and DI Luc Callanach are struggling to find leads in the case, until a doll made of skin is found nestled beside an abandoned baby.

After another young woman is found butchered, Luc and Ava realise the babydoll killer is playing a horrifying game. And it’s only a matter of time before he strikes again. Can they stop another victim from being silenced forever – or is it already too late?

My Thoughts:

Helen Fields books just keep getting better and better. This one was as chilling as all her other books are and just had me on the edge of my seat. This is book four and I would suggest (though you don’t have to) that you read the other books first to get to know the characters. This is a fast paced chilling thriller, one that you will not want to put down and now I want to read the next book.
