The Assistant By S. K. Tremayne

She watches you constantly.
Newly divorced Jo is delighted to move into her best friend’s spare room almost rent-free. The high-tech luxury Camden flat is managed by a meticulous Home Assistant, called Electra, that takes care of the heating, the lights – and sometimes Jo even turns to her for company.

She knows all your secrets.
Until, late one night, Electra says one sentence that rips Jo’s fragile world in two: ‘I know what you did.’ And Jo is horrified. Because in her past she did do something terrible. Something unforgivable.

Now she wants to destroy you.
Only two other people in the whole world know Jo’s secret. And they would never tell anyone. Would they? As a fierce winter brings London to a standstill, Jo begins to understand that the Assistant on the shelf doesn’t just want to control Jo; it wants to destroy her.

My Thoughts:

Wow what a unique story, the story centres around Jo and if she is going mad or is it the assistants? I found this read creepy and unnerving as I think anyone would do if they have a home hub in their home. Some things with these home hubs just don’t sit right with me. I couldn’t for the life of me work out where this story was going to lead and with Jo’s paranoia I wondered what would happen to her and her state of mind. The book is dark and by the final few chapters gets darker and a secret comes out that I couldn’t believe.

I Dare You By Sam Carrington

I Dare You By Sam Carrington

Mapledon, 1989
Two little girls were out playing a game of dares. Only one returned home.
The ten-year-old told police what she saw: village loner Bill ‘Creepy’ Cawley dragged her friend into his truck and disappeared.
No body was found, but her testimony sent Cawley to prison for murder. An open and shut case, the right man behind bars.
The village could sleep safe once again.

Now…
Anna thought she had left Mapledon and her nightmares behind but a distraught phone call brings her back to face her past.
30 years ago, someone lied. 30 years ago, the man convicted wasn’t the only guilty party.
Now he’s out of prison and looking for revenge. The question is, who will he start with?

My Thoughts:

I hadn’t read any of Sam’s books before so was pleasantly surprised how much this story gripped me. It goes from past to present and is about two little girls that live in a village, when something happens to one of them everyone believes its the village loner who was responsible, but was it? Back to the present and Anna is trying to find out who it really was. This book had me firmly gripped and intrigued.

I have loved this series and all the characters within the book. In this story we catch up with Lori and Jake ( you need to read the first three books to get a sense of all the characters), their life seems to be going well until tragedy strikes, will they survive it? Another excellent read from a brilliant author.

The Christmas Wish List By Heidi Swain

wish list.jpg
After being let go from her job in a swanky hotel just weeks before Christmas, Hattie is feeling lost. Even more so when her high-flying boyfriend announces he’s landed his dream job in Abu Dhabi and asks her to move with him. Luckily, Hattie’s long-time friend Dolly is on hand to help and invites Hattie to spend one last holiday in the small, festive town of Wynbridge, determined to give her a Christmas to remember . . .

Upon Hattie’s arrival, holiday preparations are in full swing. But for Hattie, whose Christmas cheer has long since run out, it’ll take more than mince pies and mistletoe to open her heart to the season once more. Relishing the task of reigniting Hattie’s Christmas spirit, Dolly suggests they create a wish list of all the things the season can offer, and with the helpful hands of Wynbridge’s resident handyman, Beamish, Hattie finds her frosty exterior is starting to thaw.

As Wynbridge prepares for its most spectacular Christmas yet, will Hattie leave snowy England behind for life in a sunnier clime, or will she in fact realise that her heart’s desire lies much closer to home?

My Thoughts:

Make sure to snuggle up with this festive read where we meet some fantastic characters that will warm your heart. If you go to Wynbridge I am sure you will feel the Christmas spirit that the locals become involved in. I loved Dolly she melted my heart and reminded me of my gran. So kind and caring. A lovely romantic and festive read, you are in for a real treat.
