Review: It Was Her

It Was Her It Was Her by Mark Hill
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was lucky to get a copy of this authors book that starts off his new series.

I then realised...hey, he’s the author that wrote The two O’clock boy that I’ve still got the proof copy of on my shelf.

I didn’t realise it was book 1, so then, ding ding.....I discovered I had book 2 on my kindle.
So guess what! I read this and thoroughly enjoyed it.

I’m only one YEAR late in reading this ! Yikes.

But again this plot and style of writing shows me the remarkable talent this author has in glueing me, yes, glueing me to his books.

If you’ve not discovered this author yet, try one of his books.

But start the beginning of his series

Review: Broken Dolls

Broken Dolls Broken Dolls by Sarah Flint
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another great book in this awesome series.
I finally got to this one.

This is cringeworthy in the aspect it’s upsetting.
It looks like a prostitute has given birth and her pimp is disposing of the baby. Horrendous and upsetting. She’s not allowed to see her child and he dumps it in a dumpster.

The Police are called and DC Charlotte is now worried. They need to move fast and find the mother.
I can’t imagine the emotions in finding a dead premature baby. And Charlotte shows her emotions which was real.

There’s violence, trafficking etc in this book that doesn’t make for an easy read, but a compulsive read for sure.

Review: Presumed Guilty

Presumed Guilty Presumed Guilty by Jane Isaac
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Book 2 in the DC Beth Chamberlain series.

I’m very familiar with this authors writing so I knew I was in for a read that’s going to be enjoyable.

Bk 1- After he’s gone.

I know some say that this can be read without a need for reading book 1. But my experiences of reading the same detective in a book is that, although it’s a different case they may be working on, the regular characters grow. And I’ve missed out on that in some series. But it’s entirely your choice.

There is a killer at large.
And he’s a loose cannon. He needs to be stopped......caught and brought to justice.

But now he’s got Beth in his sight.....

I love gutsy Beth and learning more about her is a pleasure.

Review: Trust Me

Trust Me Trust Me by Angela Clarke
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hang on
Let me breathe


After not liking book 1
Then enjoying book 2

This final book (bk 3) has brought me to my knees (reading knees)

Imagine if you switched on your PC and in live stream you saw someone being raped.

I kid you not.

What ensues after this is remarkable.

I’ll never be the same on social media again!

What a fabulous end

Review: Watch Me

Watch Me Watch Me by Angela Clarke
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

After my review of book one, I didn’t realise how much I would LOVE this one.
That’s why I never give up on an author (usually) after reading at least a few of their books.

I thoroughly enjoyed this authors other series

Bk 1 The wicked girls
Bk 2 The killer next door
Bk 3 The darkest secret

So this series I anticipated.


Bk 1 Follow me
Bk 2 Watch Me
Bk 3 Trust me

This is an exciting fast past read which takes place in all of 24 hours, and guess what! I read it within 24 hours as it was so compelling.

Review: Follow Me

Follow Me Follow Me by Angela Clarke
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Another series from my backlist.

If I hadn’t have had the other 2 on my list I may not have chosen to read them.

I say “may” because, although it’s a 2.75 star for me, rounded up there is actually something here.

It’s a topic up to date in this world....which was a plus side.

Not likeable characters ....but....I don’t care as I thought that added to it in my attitude of reading this book.

Downside, I just didn’t get excited or thrilled by it.

Review: A Steep Price

A Steep Price A Steep Price by Robert Dugoni
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

It’s been really good fun reading this series and all of this authors books are great.
Plots fab etc

But I’m burnt out of the sameness.

Intriguing plots, not straightforward as in all this series. So I was expecting this.

Review: The Trapped Girl

The Trapped Girl The Trapped Girl by Robert Dugoni
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Police procedure driven mystery.

A young person finds a body in the water where he’s fishing. But not is all as it seems.

On further investigation they find that this woman had gone to great lengths to disguise herself, but why?

I found the story enthralling and captivating. What urges me on to continue to read we’re finding answers to my ever piling of questing sin my mind.

Yet again, this is not an easy case for the DI as it floods back the death of her sister. Her emotional turmoil can be felt through the pages.

Yet another great read from this author in this pounding series.
