The Beauty of the End By Debbie Howells

The Beauty of the End By Debbie Howells

the beauty of the end

I was fourteen when I fell in love with a goddess . . .

A love he’d never forget

Ex-lawyer Noah has never forgotten his first love. When, years later, he hears that she’s suspected of murder, he knows with certainty that she’s innocent. With April on life-support and the evidence pointing towards her guilt, he’s compelled to help her. But he’s also unprepared as he’s forced to confront what happened between them all those years ago.

A secret she would never reveal

April Moon had loved Noah. She never wanted to hurt him. But there was something – and someone – dark in her life which made happiness together impossible.

A family she could never forgive

Ella is a troubled teenager with her own secrets to tell. But no one will listen. What Ella knows holds the key to finding the killer. But as Noah, April and Ella’s stories converge, shocking revelations come to the surface. The truth is obvious. Or so everyone believes . .

My Thoughts:

I have read Debbie Howells first book ‘The Bones of You’ and really enjoyed it so I was really looking forward to her second book. The story grabbed me from ┬áthe start and the whole way through the book I felt gripped, I managed to read it within a day and a half. I didn’t find it as fast paced as Debbie’s first book but I think it was very well plotted and had some really good descriptions. I couldn’t of guessed what was going to happen which is a must for me and there are twists and turns that will leave you saying oh my god!

Strictly Between Us By Jane Fallon

Strictly Between Us By Jane Fallon

Rumours, secrets and lies. It’s all in a day’s work.

Tamsin and her best friend Michelle have been inseparable since they were teenagers. Even now they spend all their time together, along with Patrick, Michelle’s handsome husband.

So when Tamsin hears a rumour that Patrick is having an affair, she is furious. Unwilling to ignore it, Tamsin plots a scheme to catch Patrick in the act, using her assistant Bea as live-bait. It should be fool proof.
After all, Tamsin can trust Bea with anything. From her daily coffee order to fetching her dry-cleaning, writing reports and doing all the filing – Bea does everything with a smile on her face.

Except Tamsin never considered Bea might have her own agenda.

And if she does, then Tamsin really needs to watch her back . . .

My Thoughts:

I had never read any of Jane Fallon’s books before this one and to be honest never heard of her before. I choose this book as I had heard good things about it. It was alright but not really my cup of tea. I liked how the chapters were each person as you get a real perspective on how each person is dealing with the situation. But I didn’t really enjoy it as I think sometimes when you read a book and it seems a bit close to home it puts you off. I wasn’t keen On Tamsin either, I mean who lies to their best friend, I just didn’t get it. I did persist until the end but it wasn’t for me.

I’ll Take New York By Miranda Dickenson

I’ll Take New York By Miranda Dickenson

Not out till the 4th December 2014

 

Have you ever given up on love?

When her boyfriend lets her down one time too many, Brooklyn bookstore owner Bea James makes a decision – never again! No more men, no more heartbreak, and no more pain.

Psychiatrist Jake Steinmann is making a new start too, leaving his broken marriage behind in San Francisco. From no on there’ll just be one love in his life: New York.

At a party Bea and Jake’s paths cross. United by being the only two singletons there, they make a pact: no more relationships….

But the city has other plans…

My Thoughts:

I loved this book, I have only ever read one of Miranda’s books before and quite liked it. I know it is predictable what is going to happen early on in this book but Miranda has written it well so that it didn’t really bother me.I think the main character Bea is lovely, i mean who wouldn’t fall for Jake he sounds utterly gorgeous and a decent kind of guy. I love the way Bea and her Gran write letters or emails to each other and that it is written in a different font, it somehow makes it extra special. Bit of a shame the plot was predictable but I totally loved it no matter. The cover is gorgeous too, it is a must if you like chick-lit.
