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.

Dead Woman Walking By Sharon Bolton

Dead Woman Walking By Sharon Bolton

Just before dawn in the hills near the Scottish border, thirteen passengers on a hot-air balloon flight witness a brutal murder. Within the next hour, all but one of them will be dead.

Alone, scared and trusting no-one, she flees for her life, running to the one place she feels safe. But she’s seen the killer’s face, and he’s seen hers – and he won’t rest until he’s eliminated the last witness to his crime . . .

My Thoughts:

This is my second book by Sharon Bolton and I can honestly say Wow. Sharon’s books pull you in straight away and I love how some of the chapters are a paragraph but it leaves you feeling as though you must read on. This is definitely an author I want to read more of and I am looking forward to reading my next book of hers. If you like intense reads, this is the one for you.

Out on 3rd May 2018

Devoted father or merciless killer?

His secrets are buried with him.

 

Florence Lovelady’s career was made when she convicted coffin-maker Larry Glassbrook of a series of child murders 30 years ago. Like something from our worst nightmares the victims were buried…ALIVE.

 

Larry confessed to the crimes; it was an open and shut case. But now he’s dead, and events from the past start to repeat themselves.

 

Did she get it wrong all those years ago?
Or is there something much darker at play?

My Thoughts:

I had never read any of Sharon Bolton’s books before this one, I just didn’t think I would enjoy a bone chilling crime book but I really did. It made a bit of a change from my usual genre’s and I am definitely going to look out for more of her books. I have to admit it is a creepy read and I wouldn’t recommend reading before bed but there is tension, mystery and red herrings along the way that you will not want to put this book down till the very end. Brilliantly written in a way that it slightly leaves you on edge.
