Blood Orange By Harriet Tyce

Alison has it all. A doting husband, adorable daughter, and a career on the rise – she’s just been given her first murder case to defend. But all is never as it seems…

Just one more night. Then I’ll end it.

Alison drinks too much. She’s neglecting her family. And she’s having an affair with a colleague whose taste for pushing boundaries may be more than she can handle.

I did it. I killed him. I should be locked up.

Alison’s client doesn’t deny that she stabbed her husband – she wants to plead guilty. And yet something about her story is deeply amiss. Saving this woman may be the first step to Alison saving herself.

I’m watching you. I know what you’re doing.

But someone knows Alison’s secrets. Someone who wants to make her pay for what she’s done, and who won’t stop until she’s lost everything….

My Thoughts:

I was looking forward to reading this book after hearing all they hype about it and it certainly did not disappoint, it has everything you want from a fast paced thriller. A couple of the twists I guessed but it didn’t put me off, I wanted to find out the ending. I thought Alison was a bit like marmite, some people may like her and some may not. I found myself not liking Alison for what she was doing but being fond of her. The story is tense and I couldn’t believe it is a debut novel. A story like this is definitely film worthy I think.

What happens when the past comes back to kill you?

When DCI Anna Tate is called to the gruesome discovery of a dead woman found on Barnes Common, she is plunged into a high‐profile investigation involving a prominent MP. London is baying for blood – but is there more to Holly’s death than at first meets the eye?

Meanwhile, the hunt is on for Anna’s missing daughter Chloe, who vanished ten years ago when her father kidnapped her. The case has been cold for what feels like forever – but a phone call brings a brand new lead…

Can Anna solve the murder case whilst dealing with her own personal demons? Or is someone from the past planning to get in her way?

My Thoughts:

This is book two in the DCI Anna Tate Crime Thriller series and these books just keep getting better and better. There are two stories in this book that run along side each other both involving DCI Anna Tate. I found I was engrossed in this book as it was gripping and well thought out. I look forward to the next book in the series.

The Doctor By Lisa Stone

How much do you know about the couple next door?

When Emily and Ben move in next door to Dr Burman and his wife Anita, they are keen to get to know their new neighbours. Outgoing and sociable, Emily tries to befriend the doctor’s wife, but Anita is strangely subdued, barely leaving the house, and terrified of answering the phone.

When Emily goes missing a few weeks later, Ben is plunged into a panic. His wife has left him a note, but can she really have abandoned him for another man? Or has Emily’s curiosity about the couple next door led her straight into danger?

My Thoughts:

This book left me stunned for words quite literally. I have never read anything about this subject and was interested to learn and know more. The story was gripping, I knew I would not like Dr Burman straight away and he lived up to my expectations. I read this book in one sitting. It was mesmerizing.

Keep Her Close By M. J. Ford

Keep Her Close By M. J. Ford

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.

Under The Ice By Rachael Blok

Under The Ice By Rachael Blok

under the ice.jpg

It is the week before Christmas and the cathedral city of St Albans is blanketed by snow. But beneath the festive lights, darkness is stirring. The frozen body of a young girl is discovered by the ice-covered lake.

The police scramble for clues. A local woman, Jenny, has had visions of what happened the night of the murder. But Jenny is an exhausted new mother, whose midnight wanderings pull her ever closer to the lake. Can Jenny be trusted? What does she really know?

Then another girl goes missing, and the community unravels. Neighbour turns against neighbour, and Jenny has no idea who to believe. As Christmas Eve approaches, Jenny discovers a secret about her past – and why she could be key to everything…

My Thoughts:

I love the cover of this book it is tense and creepy but also makes you feel slightly cold. I was shocked to see that it is Rachael’s debut novel as it is really good. This is what thrillers are all about, you want to devour it straight away but then you want to cherish the story as you know you will feel sad once it has finished. The story telling was exceptional so much so that the characters are really bought to life. I can’t wait to read the next one from Rachael Blok.

Nora Watts is being hunted . . . 

When Nora Watts is approached by a man claiming to know her late father, she is thrown into turmoil. Struggling with the imminent death, from cancer, of her friend and mentor Sebastian Crow, she is unprepared for the memories that this encounter brings back. What happened to her father that made him kill himself and abandon Nora and her sister?

Heading to Detroit to try and find some answers about his life there, Nora expects to discover a reason behind his suicide. Instead, she finds more questions than answers.

But trouble always follows Nora, and it’s found her in Detroit, a city that is as broken as she is.

My Thoughts:

I enjoyed the first book and loved how Nora grew. This story didn’t seem to have as much action as the first book but it was still an enjoyable read. You definitely have to read the first book to understand the characters and to make complete sense of what is going on. This is a thriller with lots of memorable characters and a dog called Whisper.

Her Name Was Rose By Claire Allan

Her Name Was Rose By Claire Allan

rose

Her name was Rose. You watched her die. And her death has created a vacancy.

When Emily lets a stranger step out in front of her, she never imagines that split second will change her life. But after Emily watches a car plough into the young mother – killing her instantly – she finds herself unable to move on.

And then she makes a decision she can never take back.

Because Rose had everything Emily had ever dreamed of. A beautiful, loving family, a great job and a stunning home. And now Rose’s husband misses his wife, and their son needs a mother. Why couldn’t Emily fill that space?

But as Emily is about to discover, no one’s life is perfect … and not everything is as it seems.

My Thoughts:

I really enjoyed this book. I managed to read it within two days, I would of been quicker but I didn’t want it to end. It is a powerful thriller and it left me guessing till the very end. I love the fact that hidden details emerge through out the story as I feel we really get a good insight into the whole story. This is an author I would read again.

Guilt By Amanda Robson

Guilt By Amanda Robson

guilt

Your sister. Her secret. The betrayal.

There is no bond greater than blood . . .

When the body of a woman is found stabbed to death, the blame falls to her twin sister. But who killed who? And which one is now the woman behind bars?

Zara and Miranda have always supported each other. But then Zara meets Seb, and everything changes. Handsome, charismatic and dangerous, Seb threatens to tear the sisters’ lives apart – but is he really the one to blame? Or are deeper resentments simmering beneath the surface that the sisters must face up to?

As the sisters’ relationship is stretched to the brink, a traumatic incident in Seb’s past begins to rear its head and soon all three are locked in a psychological battle that will leave someone dead. The question is, who?

My Thoughts:

If you like a fast paced thriller this is the one for you. I found I couldn’t put it down and was thinking about it even when I was not reading it. Each chapter comes from a different person’s perspective and it flits from past to present, I like the fact that some of the chapters are small as it makes you want to read on just for a little bit longer. I will definitely be reading more of Amanda’s books in the future. This one was a brilliant thriller.
