WE WERE ON A BREAK LINDSEY KELK

 ‘You’ve just had a holiday,’ I pointed out, trying not to yawn. ‘Wasn’t that enough of a break?’ ‘I don’t mean that kind of break.’
There’s nothing worse than the last day of holiday. Oh wait, there is. When what should have been a proposal turns into a break, Liv and Adam find themselves on opposite sides of the life they had mapped out.
Friends and family all think they’re crazy; Liv throws herself into work – animals are so much simpler than humans – and Adam tries to get himself out of the hole he’s dug. But as the short break becomes a chasm, can they find a way back to each other?
Most importantly, do they want to?

THE LAST ONE ALEXANDRA OLIVA

TWELVE CONTESTANTS
When Zoo agrees to take part in a new reality TV show, In the Dark, she knows that she will be tested to the limits of her endurance. Beating eleven competitors in a series of survival tasks deep in the forest, living on camera at the extremes of her comfort zone, will be the ultimate challenge before she returns home to start a family.
A GAME WITH NO END
As the contestants are overcome by hunger, injury and psychological breakdown, the mind games, tricks and hazards to which Zoo is subjected grow dark beyond belief. This isn’t what she signed up for: the deserted towns and gruesome props, the empty loneliness. Is this a game with no end? And what is happening away from the cameras’ gaze?
Discovering the truth will be just the beginning…
AN ALTERED REALITY Translated into over twenty languages, The Last One is a gripping, provocative tale of survival – of the fittest, of the best loved, of the relationships that sustain us.
MY REVIEW
Twelve contestants take part in a reality TV show. The story is a really good idea, but for me there were too many characters. I have read that when writing a novel it’s best to keep to a few main characters, not to confuse readers. And I was confused here, and didn’t bond with any characters as too many. I did have high hopes of giving this high flying reviews, but sadly this book wasn’t one of my favourite to highly recommend. The Last One is Alexandra Oliva’s first novel and although I didn’t enjoy this novel I didn’t hate it either, I have decided to follow Alexandra Oliva on Goodreads in hope that her next novel will have me singing at the top of my voice.  However I do recommend The Last One as every reader likes different reading choices.

MY REVIEW

 How can I possibly put this into words just how much I Loved this story. It’s frightening. In a dressing gown, watching television and drinking wine. Policewoman Terri Latham hears a tapping , scratching, scrabbling noise at the back door. In bare feet and her dressing gown on she goes to investigate what is making the noise. PC Terri feels something hard and heavy ramming into her skull, and her throat is cut. The police find a large black bird at the scene with a scrap of paper wrapped around the birds scrawny leg with the printed text Nevermore. Was the bird left there as message? Why was she killed? Could it be something in PC Terri Latham’s past, something she did or that the killer believes she did? I had never heard of David Jackson until I came across A Tapping At My Door. I enjoyed reading this novel so much, I need to read all David Jackson’s other novels.  A Tapping At My Door is another great novel by Zaffre books.

GIRL MISSING SOPHIE MCKENZIE

How can she find her biological parents? And are her adoptive parents really responsible for kidnapping her?

But the circumstances of her disappearance are murky and Lauren’s kidnappers are still at large and willing to do anything to keep her silent… 
MY REVIEW
Girl Missing paperback is the 10th anniversary edition including exclusive content. I loved this story about Lauren who finds out that she adopted and discovers that she had been snatched from her real family as a baby. Lauren and her friend take a journey from London to the USA to trace her real parents. This story is a quite tearful at times. Sophie McKenzie got the idea for this story by surfing on the net and came across a missing children’s website. I recommend reading Girl Missing and I have read Trust in Me by Sophie McKenzie that I also recommend.

MY REVIEW

I loved read reading this  well written tough and gritty thriller. It’s Halloween and people of Cork are out partying. A young girl leaves a club crying, she calls for a taxi to take her home. A young boy who she doesn’t even know offers her a lift to her house. She is not driven home, but dropped off at St Giles Clinic. The driver of the car slowly edge the rear wheel over her legs. The young girl wakes up in the clinic, but everything about clinic doesn’t seem good. Another part of this exciting thriller is a gang are stealing dogs in the city. The gang terrorizes a dog kennel owner in Cork. The dognappers rapes the owners wife. When the gang go to take the owners dogs, the owner takes his revenge and shoots one of them. DS Katie Maguire and her team are flat out trying to find the dognappers and the missing young girl. With questions being asked what really happened at the kennel when the owner shot one of the gang.
