She wants your life – and she’ll do anything to get it…

Erica has always wanted to be exactly like her neighbour, Faye: beautiful, thin, and a mother. But Faye’s life isn’t as perfect as it seems – she has a terrible secret, and slowly but surely, it is threatening to destroy her and everything she holds dear.

When Faye’s daughter Tamsin goes missing after school, the police turn to Erica. But is Erica the only one who has been enviously watching Faye? Or is there another threat hiding in the shadows…?

My Thoughts:

A dark and twisty plot that has you on the edge of your seat. The story was good but I managed to guess what was going to happen early on. Written well with each chapter being a different person which I liked.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.

All Anna wants is to be able to sleep. But crushing insomnia, terrifying night terrors and memories of that terrible night are making it impossible. If only she didn’t feel so guilty…

To escape her past, Anna takes a job at a hotel on the remote Scottish island of Rum, but when seven guests join her, what started as a retreat from the world turns into a deadly nightmare.

Each of the guests have a secret, but one of them is lying – about who they are and why they’re on the island. There’s a murderer staying in the Bay View hotel. And they’ve set their sights on Anna.

Seven strangers. Seven secrets. One deadly lie.

Someone’s going to sleep and never wake up…

My Thoughts:

You know when you read a book about a remote setting that your in for a creepy story and this one did not disappoint. I have read a plot like this before but the story was no where near as good as this one. Twists and turns at every available point keeps the reader on edge and then the ending was sublime. You can’t get much better than this. Another brilliant read from a fantastic author.

Just how far is a mother willing to go?

When a mysterious note arrives for seven months pregnant nurse Eliana Hughes, she begins to doubt every aspect of her life – from her mixed feelings about motherhood to her marriage to Martin, who has become distant in recent months.

As the person behind the note escalates their campaign to out Eli’s husband as a cheat, she finds herself unable to trust even her own instincts, and as pressure builds, she makes a mistake that jeopardises her entire future.

Elsewhere, someone is watching. Someone who desperately wants a baby to call their own and will go to any lengths to become a mother – and stay a mother…

My Thoughts:

If you want a book that has twists and turns and a gripping plot then this is the book for you. It is a intriguing story that makes you wonder how far would you go? I found it a powerful and emotional read. It keeps you guessing till the very end.

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  the 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!

My Thoughts:

I couldn’t put this book down as it is so full of twists and turns. I liked how it alternated between present day and  Charlotte’s mother’s diary from the past. I grew to like Sue despite her flaws. I read this book within two days and was really intrigued what was going to happen next. This was a brilliant debut novel and I am excited to read the author’s next book called The Lie.
