My Sister’s Lies By S. D. Robertson

For a decade, Hannah’s life has been pretty close to perfect – she has a great job, she’s married to Mark, and her child-free existence means she’s free as a bird. The only sadness in her life is a fall-out with her sister Diane, who hasn’t spoken to her in over ten years. But now Diane is on her doorstep – and this time, she’s got her teenage daughter Mia in tow.

When Diane asks if Mia can stay with Hannah and Mark for a few days, Hannah is glad of the chance to get to know her niece. But as the days turn into weeks and Diane doesn’t return, Hannah begins to worry. Why hasn’t her sister been in touch?

Diane is carrying a devastating secret that will destroy Hannah’s carefully constructed life. But how much is she willing to reveal – and when will she pick her moment?

My Thoughts:

This is such a powerful and emotional read. After not seeing her sister for over ten years Hannah gets a shock when she turns up on her doorstep. Diane needs help, help from Hannah and her husband Mark to look after Hannah’s niece Mia, something is not quite right and what will be will shock you to the core. The truth comes out after something shocking happens. How will they all cope? Had me hooked till the very end.

Someone is playing a deadly game…

When a young woman goes missing from Jesus College, Oxford, DS Josie Masters is plunged into a world of panic as fear grips the city. Along with Thames Valley Police’s newest recruit, the handsome DS Pryce, Josie must act fast – and when two more students disappear from Oriel and Somerville colleges, she realises the killer is sending her a deadly message in a cruel game of cat and mouse. This time, the case is personal – but who is the perpetrator?

In a desperate race against the clock, Josie hunts for the kidnapper, and soon discovers he could be a lot closer to home than she’d ever thought…

My Thoughts:

A new author to me so wasn’t sure what to expect. I found the story quite realistic and a real page turner. I do love a police drama and when the suspect could be someone you know it gets even better. I didn’t guess what was coming and who the perpetrator was and for me that is what makes a brilliant thriller. I look forward to reading more by this author.

The Age of Misadventure By Judy Leigh

The Age of Misadventure By Judy Leigh

All Georgie Turner wants is to keep her family together. But with her daughter growing up fast, her sister married to a man Georgie hates, and their aging aunt getting more and more outrageous, nothing’s simple.

So when her brother-in-law makes his biggest mistake yet, Georgie sees the chance to reunite the ladies in her life. And after a little persuasion, three generations of Turner women head off on a very unusual road trip. Georgie’s confident that some sun, sea and a bottle or two of prosecco will make this an adventure they’ll never forget.

What could possibly go wrong?

My Thoughts:

I loved this book, the cover sets the book off beautiful. There are lots of lovely characters and some not so nice. I loved Nan, the way she just wants a bit of company and her love of food is warming. She might not say the right words sometimes but that is all part of her charm, you can tell she is very loving and caring. Some of the things the women get up to is hilarious, it made me chuckle a few times. A nice uplifting story.
