THE INTERNATIONAL PHENOMENON
Some things can never be forgiven
A little boy is found dead in a children’s playground.
Daniel Hunter has spent years defending lost causes as a solicitor in London. But his life changes when he is introduced to Sebastian, an eleven-year-old accused of murdering an innocent young boy.
As he plunges into the muddy depths of Sebastian’s troubled home life, Daniel thinks back to hos own childhood in foster care and to Minnie, the woman whose love saved him, until she, too, betrayed him so badly that he cut her out of his life.
But what crime did Minnie commit that made Daniel’s identification with a child on trail for murder make him question everything he ever believed in?
I read this a long time ago when it first came out. I can not believe that I forgot to do a review on one my best favourite reads. The Guilty One is Lisa Ballantyne’s brilliant page turning very first novel I look forward to reading more novels by Lisa. It with no question a deeply psychological and suspenseful read. The story is about Daniel Hunter a solicitor in London who is defending Sebastian, an eleven-year old boy Ben. Sebastian is accused of killing Ben in a playground. Sebastian claims he is innocent with Daniel wanting to believe Sebastian. This story has sharp interesting twist at the end. Highly recommend this story for reading. It would make a good christmas present.
Courtney’s boyfriend has just gone down on one knee and asked her to be his wife. She couldn’t be happier. And with her super organised sister, Norah, to help plan her wedding, what could possible go wrong.?
Nothing until Courtney decides their other sister Raine, should be invited. No one has seen or heard from Raine for six years since she ruined Norah’s own wedding and ran off with the love of Courtney’s life.
Convinced they should all be able to move on after so much time, Courtney gets the sisters back together again only to find that family ghost aren’t easily vanquished and neither are first loves. Reuniting her family is going to make Courtney reconsider every decision she has made for the last six years right down to the man she is about to marry.
It is going to be one long summer.
For me it does not matter what novel Megan Crane write’s I just love all of them. I find her novels so easy to get in to and full of drama. Names My Sister Calls Me is about Courtney who boyfriend goes on one knee on the ice with a romantic proposal. Nora, Courtney’s sister starts making Courtney and Lucas wedding plans, which drives Courtney insane. Courtney tells Norah that she wants their other sister Raine to come to her wedding. Norah is furious with Courtney that she want Raine to her wedding as Raine walked out of Norah’s wedding with a guy. Norah thinks that Raine is a selfish drama queen. Norah claims that she will tell Lucas about Courtney having a crush on her older sisters best friend, pointing out that it’s either Norah or Raine at Courtney’s wedding. Phew! so much happens it is a page turner. I really do recommend Names My Sister Calls Me. I hope that many readers will put their feet up and enjoy this novel as much as I have.

Emma’s Baby is Abbie Taylor’s very first novel. I was glued to it from page one. It is so full of tension that I am looking forward to Abbie Taylor’s second novel. The story starts of Sunday 17th September Emma took her baby son Ritchie out of the day to Spitalfields market. Emma heads of back home on the blue and red london underground circle line. with the train approaching Emma lifts Ritchie out of his buggy and steered him on to the empty carriage holding on to his harness. the door closes and she is still gripping Ritchie’s harness. Emma pressed the open button but nothing happened. Pointing to a lady on the train shouting my baby. A lady mouths to Emma next stop. Emma makes her way to the next stop. When Emma arrives at the next stop Emma is pleased to see that the lady Antonia has Ritchie for Emma. Antonia takes Emma and Ritchie to a cafe but when Emma goes to the toilet Antonia takes off with baby Ritchie. Emma ends up in hospital telling the police that a lady has taken her son but the police do not believe her and ask Emma are you sure that the child didn’t belong to the other woman. Can Emma get the police to listen to her?. I highly recommend Emma’s Baby. I hope that many readers will enjoy reading Emma’s Baby as much as I have.
