PAGES 387

AMAZON £3.99

My name is Amber Reynolds. There are three things you should know about me. 1. I’m in a coma
2. My husband doesn’t love me any more
3. Sometimes I lie

MY REVIEW

Unnerving, twisted and utterly compelling, you won’t be able to put this new thriller down. Set to be the most talked about book in 2017.

I love every page. All I can say is if you’ve got anything to do in the next 24 hours do not pick up this book.

Thirty-five Amber Reynolds radio presenter is married to Paul. The sound of a machine in hospital, clearly something very bad happened. Amber is in a coma and cannot remember when or what happened. She believes her husband doesn’t love her and she knows her husband has something to do with her being in a coma. But sometimes Amber Reynolds lies. Amber changes her role to suit the people around her. She can do Amber the friend or Amber the wife. But right now it’s time for Amber from Coffee Morning at the radio station.

I Highly recommend reading Sometimes I lie as the plot thickens and continue without Amber beyond her hospital room.

BEING SIMON HAINES

MEET SIMON HAINES

FOR A DECADE HE’S BEEN CHASING HIS DREAM partnership at the legendary,family run law firm of Fiennes & Plunkett. The gruelling hours and manic intensity of his job have come close to breaking him, but he has made it through the years and is now within a whisker of his millions in less than two weeks, he will know the outcome of the partnership vote. He decides to spend the wait in Cuba in an attempt to rediscover his youthful enthusiasm and curiosity, and to clear his mind before the arrival of the news that might change his life forever. But alone in Havana he becomes lost in nostalgia and begins to relieve his past.

set against the backdrop of an uncertain world, and charged with emotion. Being Simon Haines is a searching story about contemporary London and aspiration, values and love. Painting a picture of a generation of young professionals, it asks the most universal of questions are we strong enough to know who we are?

MY REVIEW

For a decade Simon Haines had been chasing his dream partnership at the legendary, family run law firm Fiennes & Plunkett. To me Simon Haines seemed like a work acholoic. He had billed over three thousand hours in the previous twelve months. He had spent three consecutive days and nights at his desk. Mr Simon Haines had been brought up not to love money, nor to resent money, nor even to actively disregard money, but instead and most naturally never to ascribe a value to it that went beyond what was commensurate with his needs.

I would like to thank RedDoor for sending me a uncorrected proof copy and inviting me to host the blog tour for Being Simon Haines.

 

INTO THE WATER PAULA HAWKINS

INTO THE WATER PAULA HAWKINS

Hardback Amazon £9.99

Julia, it’s me. I need you to call me back. Please, Julia. It’s important. 

In the last days before her death, Nel called her sister. Jules didn’t pick up the phone, ignoring her plea for help.

Now Nel is dead. They say she jumped. And Jules has been dragged back to the one place she hoped she had escaped for good, to care for the teenage girl her sister left behind.

But Jules is afraid. So afraid. Of her long-buried memories, of the old Mill House, of knowing that Nel would never have jumped.

And most of all she’s afraid of the water, and the place they call the Drowning Pool . . .

With the same propulsive writing and acute understanding of human instincts that captivated millions of readers around the world in her explosive debut thriller, The Girl on the Train, Paula Hawkins delivers an urgent, satisfying read that hinges on the stories we tell about our pasts and their power to destroy the lives we live now.

MY REVIEW

Danielle Abbott’s sister’s body  was seen in the river by a man walking his dogs. She was fully clothed and her injuries were consistent with the fall from the cliff above the pool. Did she fall or did she jump? His sister was obsessed with the pool with everything that had happened there and with everyone that had died in there. Danielle Abbott once saved his sister from drowning in the Beckford pool, that now is known as the Beckford Drowning Pool. The drowning pool has claimed the lives of Libby Seeton, Mary Marsh, Anne Ward, Ginny Thomas, Lauren Slater Katie Whittaker. And now Nel Abbott. There is so much mystery to found out as to why Nel Abbott was found in the drowning pool. Although I must say that I much preferred reading The Girl On The Train than Into The Water however Into The Water is a good read.

 MY REVIEW

I loved reading I Know My Name by C. J. Cooke. This psychological drama story was inspired by her creative work in mental health. I am so excited for the author as a TV adaptation is in development. There are no spoils in this review, I am going to keep the darkest moments to this psychological thriller story top-secret.
On the 16th March 2015 Kommeno Island, 8.4 miles northwest of Crete a girl is washed up. She was lucky her boat didn’t capsize before it hit the beach. The people who have rescued her tell her their names. But the girl feeling physically weak and battered can’t think clearly, yet her own name won’t come to her.She doesn’t know where she is or who she is.
17th March 2015 Potters Lane, Twickenham, London. It’s after midnight, Wife Eloise is officially missing. She was at home that night shortly before seven making pancakes. But sometime between ten and one while the children were a sleep in their beds she disappeared from the family home. The suspense lingers in the air, where has Eloise gone?
I recommend reading I Know My Name then you will find out why Lochlan’s wife vanished into thin air.

THE SPECIAL GIRLS ISABELLE GREY

The Special Girls By Isabelle Grey

Di Grace Fisher No. 3

Published By Quercus

Hardback Amazon £18.94

Who are the special girls? Are they victims or merely troublesome? 

A young psychiatric registar is found beaten to death in woods close to a summer camp for young patients suffering from eating disorders. It is run by the charismatic Professor world-renowned  professor Ned Chesham. DI Grace Fisher investigates. But it is not long before she is pulled from the case to head up a metropolitan Police review into a cold case inquiry involving Chesham himself.

Nearly twenty years earlier, one of Chesham’s patients made allegations that he sexually assaulted her. The investigation at the time found no conclusive proof, but Grace soon discovers another victim, and witness whose shocking account never reached the police.  Does this mean the original investigation was wrapped up too soon?  Scotland Yard would certainly prefer  Grace to make it all go away.

As Grace uncovers the secrets and lies that led to the doctor’s murder, she discovers the full extent of the damage done to the special girls – and the danger they are still in.

MY REVIEW

What stands out is how the author Isabelle Grey has written this story with an exceptional suspense. I enjoyed reading every page that was full of suspicion.
Twenty eight year old doctor Tim Merrick was young, polite, helpful and this was his first time at summer camp, with eight young girls with that all have eating disorders. Anorexia mainly. Toby Thomas was walking his dog when his dog Daisy found a dead body. The ugly scene looked liked someone may have hit Tim Merrick on the head and in face once he was on the ground. It paints a tale of real fear as it looked like his injuries were probably inflicted by a blood stained rock that was found near the scene. So many questions build up. Did Tim have any problems with anyone?  Had he arranged to meet someone? This is a baffling horrific crime for the police and they are going to question everyone at the summer camp including the eight girls, however unlikely it would be one of them was a killer. The law is the law and everyone needs to be questioned each in turn would have to be scrupulously ruled out as suspect.  At a time like this when crime fiction has become one of the top-selling categories I have found that this book has an unputdownable offering that is why I completely highly recommend readers buying The special Girls.

One evening, a wife asks her husband a question: who else would you go for, if you could? It is a simple question – a little game – that will destroy her life.

Carly and Rob are a perfect couple. They share happy lives with their children and their close friends Craig and Jenny. They’re lucky. But beneath the surface, no relationship is simple: can another woman’s husband and another man’s wife ever just be good friends?
Little by little, Carly’s question sends her life spiralling out of control, as she begins to doubt everything she thought was true. Who can she trust? The man she has promised to stick by forever, or the best friend she has known for years? And is Carly being entirely honest with either of them?
MY REVIEW
First of all I would like to put my hand on my heart and say a very big thank you to Avon for sending me Obsessions to review.
Reading about marriage/thrillers is my speciality, I just reading about what goes on behind a marriage.
I couldn’t take my eyes of the pages from these characters that all had husband and wife secrets.
Obsession is a dark, twisting thriller. A must buy – must read. 
Carly Burton is a loving nurse, wife and mother. After one evening when Carly asks her husband Rob who else would you go for, if you could. When he answers Jenni this simple little game destroys Carly’s life.
Rob who is a religious man who is a doctor that has patients pulling him into a busy routine at his surgery in Stanfield.
Jenni Rossiter who works at the surgery has a religious fixation going to church, praying every morning and every evening.
A web of betrayal is about to explode.
Jenni’s husband Craig and Carly start having just a pure sexual affair. When Jenni finds out about her husband Craig and Carly having a sexual affair together for her this is totally unforgivable in her eyes and demands a divorce.
Carly suspects that Rob is having an affair with Jenni.
Carly Burton is suffering from an illness that is very complicated with depression, low self-esteem, alcoholism mixed with paranoia and sex addiction.
Craig and Jenni move to Cornwall to have a fresh start at their marriage, but Craig falls in love with another woman.  
Crazy things start happening through out this brilliant story and things start to go horribly wrong.  I very strongly recommend reading Obsession by Amanda Robson.
