What if the person you thought you knew best turns out to be someone you never knew at all...
Cosy Candles - well worth a visit
Another from the Series ‘A Diary of...’
Another instalment of the Grant County series, catching up with Sara Linton and Jeffery Tolliver. This time, they stumble across a young girl who has been buried alive. The girl is from a family with strong, almost cult-like beliefs who react in a variety of ways to having the police in close proximity. Lena, Jeffrey’s colleague, has her own demons to face throughout the story and puts the case in jeopardy. Despite knowing what she has been through, I personally find Lena to be a troublesome character and I am waiting for her to redeem herself!
Although the focus of the story is the crime and the efforts to bring criminals to justice, I still enjoy the trials and tribulations of Sara and Jeffery. This time, Jeffery is confronted with his own health scare, whilst Sara supports him and delves in to her mum’s personal history.
There is only one…

A missing child. A desperate mother. And a house full of secrets.
JP Delaney is a pseudonym of Tony Strong. Having read the popular 'The Girl Before,' I was looking forward to reading 'Believe Me' and taking part in the social media book tour. The book's main protagonist is Claire, a troubled British actress who is living in America after becoming embroiled in a scandal at home.… Continue reading Book Review: Believe Me by J P Delaney #bookreview #booktour @Quercusbooks #socialmediatour #believeme #bookblog
Although I haven’t embraced the Fallen Angel series as I have in the same way as The Black Dagger Brotherhood, I am still thoroughly enjoying the plight of Jim Heron.
This instalment sees Jim in another battle against Devina the demon. In each book, they have a target: a soul that needs saving. Previously, the targets have all been strangers to Jim, whereas this time it’s all a bit closer to home. Jim’s former boss, Matthias, is the target. The catch is that Jim and Matthias are not what you would call best buddies so this adds another layer to this particular story.
If you’re a fan of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, I would definitely recommend giving this series a go. JR Ward’s witty style is evident throughout and you might even notice the odd mention of the odd Brotherhood character in passing!
I was first attracted to the book by the impressive 4.3 stars on Amazon from almost 1000 reviewers and was surprised that I hadn’t come across John Marrs sooner.
Catherine wakes up one morning to find her husband, Simon, has disappeared. Convinced he wouldn’t leave her, let alone their 3 children, she naturally fears the worst. The reader soon discovers the truth as the perspective changes between Catherine and Simon, who happens to be on the other side of the world building a new life for himself.
We gradually learn more about why Simon left as the author flits between the present and 25 year ago. We slowly learn more and more about Simon’s reasoning whilst Catherine rebuilds her own life without her husband.
The story is well-written and kept me interested right to the end. I can honestly say that I was surprised at how harrowing I found the…
