Two Little Boys by L.M.KRIER

Two Little Boys: DI Ted Darling Book IITwo Little Boys: DI Ted Darling Book II by L.M. Krier
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

L M Krier has done it again, i have got to say this series is just getting better. And i am giving this a massive 5 well deserved stars.

This is the second book in the DI Ted Darling series were we see Ted and Tev's relationship develop and get to know more about them especially with this crime subject showing you Ted's unpleasant childhood experience. We are introduced to a new character nicknamed the ice queen. This name did make me giggle.

I read this in one sitting, i just couldn't put it down, the twist at the end is just brilliant,I didn't see that coming. The subject matter of child abuse is very sensitive and L M Krier has portrayed this with her excellent writing skills.

If you are looking for a new detective crime series then is for you. It is faced paced and keeps you wanting more. I am looking forward to the third one in the series.

Baby Got Blue Eyes by L.M.KRIER

Baby's Got Blue Eyes: Introducing DI Ted DarlingBaby's Got Blue Eyes: Introducing DI Ted Darling by L.M. Krier
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the first book in a series introducing DI Ted Darling and also my first read by LM Krier which i absolutely loved. This is a very original crime mystery with DI Ted Darling being a gay detective this is pure genius, something i feel that is totally different to other crime novels that i have read.

L M Krier writing is just brilliant even the detail in the cup of green tea. The characters are likeable and realistic Ted is easy going and understanding and he lives with his partner Trev who have a brilliant relationship with each other.

I was drawn in from the beginning until the end. this was an easy and flowing read definitely a page turner. and had me guessing who is it until the end. I cannot wait to get reading the next one in the series.

I am giving this book 4 stars i highly recommend it

Scales Of Justice David Moon

Scales of JusticeScales of Justice by David B. Moon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was lucky enough to be given a copy of this book by the author for an honest review.

Firstly i have to say i have never read this author before and i absolutely loved it. I was literally on the edge of my seat from the start to finish and i read this in one afternoon. this is a very fast paced easy read crime mystery thriller. With lots of twists and turns that keep you guessing who the Maytag Reaperman is. This book isn't for the faint hearted there is lots of gruesome and gory murders in it. which i loved this book was definitely right up my street, with likeable believable well described characters.

This book starts off in 1981 then moves to 2015. Then just over half way through the book the story flicks back and forth between to years giving an insight into Reapermans childhood. I especially liked the calender dates for the chapters this made it easy to follow.

My only negative thing i have to say about Scales Of Justice is the cover. I would never have picked this book up to read thinking it is a crime mystery thriller. The cover does not do the book any justice and looks like a horror book cover. But never the less that just shows you shouldn't judge a book by its cover.

I highly recommend this and i am giving it 5 stars, i look forward to reading more or this series and author.

Finally and big thank you to David Moon for a copy....keep up the good work.

Time to DieTime to Die by Caroline Mitchell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

First of all i would like to say a big thank you to Netgalley and Bookouture for a copy of this excellent book.OMG this book is just brilliant.

After reading Don't Turn Around i was eager to get stuck into the second DC Jennifer Knight story and my god i was not disappointed i can not tell you how brilliant this book is i just loved it from start to finish.I love the whole paranormal with crime genre.

This book is about a serial killer Bert the Raven i am not going to say to much has i don't want to give away the story.His character is very well written with chapters flicking to him and to the actual story. The chapters are titled Bert and we see his character develop from his past has a child to the present day.

In this book we get to know more about Jennifer and her life in the past reading more scenes with her sister and dad, and wow wow wow Will an Jennifer iv been looking forward to seeing their relationship develop and my it did just that.

I have got to say i had a giggle to myself with the scene about the fake Facebook account, i mean who hasn't got a fake Facebook account to look at other peoples profiles this was just class he-he

And just when i think the story as been unraveled Caroline throws a twist in, well i wasn't expecting that at all. That was absolutely brilliant. I just couldn't put this book down. I can not recommend this book enough, it is very well written, in fact both books in the series are and i can not wait until the third one is out. This is definitely five massive stars from me keep up the good work Caroline

Dont Turn Around Carol Mitchell

Don't Turn AroundDon't Turn Around by Caroline Mitchell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Firstly this book has been sitting on my TBR pile for far to long and i wish i had read it sooner.This is definatly my kind of book, paranormal mixed with crime. what can i say i absolutely loved it, read it in two afternoons.

The story alternates between DCI Jennifer knight investigating recent deaths and Frank Fosters story from him growing up in 1960 as a child, to him calling himself the grim reaper where Jennifer's mother helped to convict him after all his gruesome twisted physio murders, which will have you on the edge of your sit.Jennifer is a strong likeable and interesting character i am looking forward to her story unfolding through this series.

Overall this is a very well written, face paced, gripping debut novel and i can highly recommend it giving it 5 stars. I have enjoyed it so much i have gone straight on to read the second one in the series

Written in the Scars (The Estate Series Book 4)Written in the Scars by Mel Sherratt
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Mel has done it again with another brilliant read of the Estate series they just get better. I was hooked from the start and like all of the Estate series this is a story about real people,real life and real emotions and drama. Which readers can relate to.

I enjoyed this book right from the start, its is very well written and the characters are likable and i found that i could relate to them, all having real life problems. This story as been very thought out and i can imagine a lot of research as gone into this with the sensitive story-lines which i am not giving any spoilers out.

Fans of The Estate series wont be disappointed this is the best one so far with old and new characters. This is definitely a massive five star read.

Keep up the good work Mel

The House On Cold Hill Peter James

The House on Cold HillThe House on Cold Hill by Peter James
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Well what can I say.......move over Stephen King and Shaun Hutson!!!! I am a massive fan of horror and ghost stories this has got to be the best one I've read in a long time. I am also a fan of Peter James Roy Grace series and like all of his novels there is lots of chapters but they are short which I love.

This story as you gripped from the first chapter where I actually "said omg no way"! This is very cleverly written is full of suspense and gets you thinking. And OMG what a very clever ending I just wasn't expecting that at all.

The Harcourt family are very likeable and within days of moving in they are aware they aren't the only people living in cold Hill house. I would say this book is very creepy and you would be scared to go to bed on your own if your reading this late at night. But for me I loved it that much I need to find some of Peter James old stories. I actually read this in one evening.

I did love the fact that this was such a modern ghost story with face time, Katie Perry and of course up town funk mentioned this I found an added bonus not just your typical Haunted house. Would love to see this has a film.

Readers of Peter James will not be disappointed I highly recommended this with five big massive stars it's got to be the best book I've read this year.

24 hours by Claire Seeber

24 Hours: An intense, suspenseful psychological thriller24 Hours: An intense, suspenseful psychological thriller by Claire Seeber
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I am giving this book 5 stars after reading it in one sitting the title is what it says it is, I am a Claire Seeber fan and this is definitely her best one yet.

The story is set over 24 hours with Laurie racing against time to find her daughter. The chapters flick between the count up to the 24 hours and the past building up the story of what has happened and what is happening which is very cleverly done when the story comes to an whole at the end. this is what makes this story exciting and full of suspense. I was literary sitting on the edge of my seat hoping Laurie gets to her daughter.

If you like fast paced psychological thrillers then this book is for you.

thanks to netgallery and the publisher for this book

Wrong Place by M.A.Comley

Wrong PlaceWrong Place by M.A. Comley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Fast paced and gripping

First of all I've had this on my kindle for a while to long! After it came up in my amazon recommendations I downloaded it. I have never read this author before and it was actually the cover that sold it to me. I didn't even read the blog. They say never judge a book by its cover, well I certainly did and OMG this book is has cover as the cover....it's brilliant.

This is a very fast paced gripping story which I read in one sitting. The story starts off introducing DI Sally Parker and a dead body in a graveyard. Well that was it I was hooked.

DI Sally Parker and DS Jack Blackman are very believable characters. I love how M.A. Comley AS added detail to their personal life's in the first book of the series. I do feel there is more to come with this and that Jack has a soft spot for Sally.

This is definitely a rollercoaster read and a who's the serial killer storyline with a twist. I highly recommend this book and I'm giving it 5 stars. I'm excited at the fact I have found a new author to read thanks to amazon......it's straight on to hiding place for me
