THE DEVIL’S WORK MARK EDWARDS

A gripping psychological thriller from the bestselling author of Follow You Home and The Magpies.

It was the job she had dreamed of since childhood. But on her very first day, when an unnerving encounter drags up memories Sophie Greenwood would rather forget, she wonders if she has made a mistake. A fatal mistake.

What is her ambitious young assistant really up to? And what exactly happened to Sophie’s predecessor? When her husband and daughter are pulled into the nightmare, Sophie is forced to confront the darkest secrets she has carried for years.

As her life begins to fall apart at work and at home, Sophie must race to uncover the truth about her new job…before it kills her.

MY REVIEW

A MUST BUY- MUST READ

One of the best psychological thrillers that I have read. I am now following Mark Edwards on Goodreads due to his ability to write page turning chapters. Every page is filled with suspense of excitement. Sophie Greenwood gets her dream job working for Jackdaw Books, one of the world’s most successful children’s publishers. What is the worst thing that can happen in a publishing office? And how can someone in the office tear your family apart? What I can tell you is this thriller will have you on the edge of your seat. Mark Edwards books are inspired by his real-life experiences.

OUT OF BOUNDS VAL MCDERMID

‘There were a lot of things that ran in families, but murder wasn’t one of them ..

When a teenage joyrider crashes a stolen car, a routine DNA test could be the key to unlocking the mystery of a twenty-year-old murder inquiry. Detective Chief Inspector Karen Pirie is an expert at solving the unsolvable. With each cold case closed, justice is served. So, finding the answer should be straightforward, but it’s as twisted as the DNA helix itself.

Meanwhile, Karen finds herself irresistibly drawn to another case, one that she has no business investigating. And as she pieces together decades-old evidence, Karen discovers the most dangerous kind of secrets. Secrets that someone is willing to kill for …

MY REVIEW

First of all I would like to congratulate Val McDermid on her 30th novel. This certainly calls for something to celebrate by Val McDermid and her followers.  A brilliant author as always I loved every page of Out Of Bounds. Detective Chief Inspector Karen Pirie and Detective Constable Murray are attached to Police Scotland’s Historic Case Unit. A Land Rover somersaulted over a roundabout. All three passengers dead. The driver is still alive, but in a coma. The DNA taken from the driver is connected to a twenty-year-old murder, but there are enough twists here to keep all Val McDermid fans and new fans gripped tight. In the past I have had nightmares with some the books that I have read by Val McDermid, I do wonder if any of her ideas for novels come to her in her dreams. To add to this spine-chilling novel Out Of Bounds there is a bonus short story at the back of the book.

CAN YOU EVER ESCAPE THE DARKNESS OF YOUR PAST?

Arrowood is the most ornate and beautiful of the grand historical houses that line the Mississippi river in southern Iowa where the days are long and humid and communities are small and closed. It has its own secrets and ghostly presence: it’s where two small twin girls were abducted ten years previously – never to be seen again. Now, Arden has inherited Arrowood, and she returns to her childhood home determined to establish what really happened to her sisters that traumatic summer. But the house and the surrounding town hold their secrets close – and the truth, when Arden finds it, is more devastating than she ever could have imagined. Family lies, buried secrets and a terrifying truth lie at the heart of this brilliant and haunting crime novel.

MY REVIEW

Rule one never use the Ouija board. Arden Arrowood returns to her childhood home, where her twin sisters disappeared ten years ago. The Stately home has all the ghostly sounds, that will spook you out. When Arden was a young girl she was looking after her twin sisters, playing in the garden. Arden sees Violet and Tabitha get into a gold car. At the time Harold Singer was seen taking pictures of the children playing and he had a gold car. And if Harold Singer hadn’t taken the twins, then who did and where have the twins gone?

MY REVIEW

A great thriller breathless all the way.

Loved it. Lots of twists that had me on the edge of my seat and didn’t see coming. Quite easy-going Dom has a new friend Andy, who is confident slightly lonely seeking friendship. Andy suggests that they rob a post office. No one will lose out or get hurt and no one will ever suspect them. But after they robbed the post office things are never the same again for Dom and his wife or his daughter, they become chased by a gang running for their lives. And who is Dom’s best mate Andy really? Reckless, innocent deaths occur. This is a high tension thriller with a sad ending. Highly recommend.

MY REVIEW

The sort of book that has twists in and discovering what is really the truth. A life changing gift for Ellen Harrison. Ellen received a letter from Wiilmot and Lowe, solicitors regarding the last will and testament of Eudora Jane Nash. It appears that Eudora has died and left her cottage to Ellen. The news of Ellen been left a cottage by someone she doesn’t know is a bit of a mystery. A devastating crime. School boy John Michael Adams is sentenced for the murder of a fourteen year old girl and for the attempted murder of another girl in the same class in a Modern secondary school. I recommend reading this story with long buried secrets to discover.

I FOUND YOU LISA JEWELL

‘How long have you been sitting out here?”
‘How long have you been sitting out here?”
‘Where did you come from?’
‘I have no idea’.
East Yorkshire: Single mum Alice Lake finds a man on the beach outside her house. He has no name, no jacket, no idea what he is doing there. Against her better judgement she invites him in to her home.
But who is he. and how can she trust a man who has lost his memory?
Surrey: Twenty-one-year-old Lily Monrose has only been married for three weeks. When her new husband fails to come home from work one night she is left stranded in a new country where she knows no one. Then the police tell her that her husband never existed.
MY REVIEW
I really enjoyed reading this novel. I do enjoy Lisa Jewell books. There are certainly some thrilling moment with little twists in.  Everyone has a story. But what if you can’t remember yours? Alice finds a man sitting on the beach for a few days outside her house , no matter what the weather is like. Alice invites this stranger into her house and lets him sleep in her garden shed. ( This part in the book I didn’t think believable. Who would really just bring in a strange man into her life with children to think about and your own safety) However Lisa Jewell being the excellent writer that she is puts in a good reason why Alice has let this man into her house. He has lost his memory and can’t remember his name or anything about his life. Another part of the story a woman reports her husband missing. Readers are guided back in time where young teenagers get into a fight. Trust me I Found You holds lots of mysteries, closing the story making everything throughout come together, like you would never expect to happen . I hope you all enjoy this amazing story like I did.
