Theres not many books that have made me cry despite me being a cry baby at most things .

Me before you is the most profiloc story to get my tears flowing. So there’s a big comparision to a fantastic book!

This story is beautiful.

Its resonated with me on so many levels….quite spooky actually.

A love story unlike any other

Funny heartwarming and life affirming

Both charactars go on a journey of reflection and self discovery.

Thought provoking and will leave you wanting to embrace life and all its messy parts!

BOOK REVIEW IF ONLY I COULD TELL YOU BY HANNAH BECKERMAN

Audreys family has fallen apart.

Her two grown up daughters Jess and Lily aren’t speaking and her teenage granddaughters have never been allowed to meet. A secret that echos back thirty years has splintered the family in two, but its also the one thing keeping them connected.

Now the choice that one of them made long ago is about to surface. After decades of silence, can one broken family find their way back to each other.

Hannahs debut was one of my first books i read and reviewed when i first started blogging in 2014. So myself and others were so eager to read her second book.

She is a incredible writer with the ability to weave a lot of emotions into her story.

This will captivate you and make you eager to know the secret that has been keeping this family at war. The truth slowly unravels and it all begins to make sense.

A accurate and genuine exploration of families, trust, betrayal and love.

This is already doing incredibly well and i predict a Richard and judy pick ….

Highly recommend and cant wait to read more..write quicker!!

BOOK REVIEW THE TAKING OF ANNIE THORNE BY C.J TUDOR

Then . . .

One night, Annie went missing. Disappeared from her own bed. There were searches, appeals. Everyone thought the worst. And then, miraculously, after forty-eight hours, she came back. But she couldn’t, or wouldn’t, say what had happened to her.

Something happened to my sister. I can’t explain what. I just know that when she came back, she wasn’t the same. She wasn’t my Annie.

I didn’t want to admit, even to myself, that sometimes I was scared to death of my own little sister.

Now. . .

The email arrived in my inbox two months ago. I almost deleted it straight away, but then I clicked OPEN:

I know what happened to your sister. It’s happening again . . .

Quite possibly one of the easiest preorders ive ever done. After the chalk man last year My self like many other bookworms were eager to read more from this author. Boy does it exceed expectations. She is a phenomenal writer already collecting praise from the likes of Stephen king! If you havnt read any of her books…firstly why not? Secondly go and rectify.

I whizzed through this and already want more . Incredibly dark and chilling. This draws you in and doesn’t let go until you have uncovered every secret and read every page.

This is eerie and chilling and reminds me of books i read as a teenager from James Herbert.

Completely unpredictable and twists and turns you wont see coming i cant recommend enough.

I wish her every success and cant wait to see her reader’s grow in numbers with each release.

2019: Julianne is preparing a family dinner when her son comes to her and says he’s found something on his iPad. Something so terrible, it will turn Julianne’s world into a nightmare and make her question everything about her marriage and what type of man her husband is or is pretending to be.

BOOK REVIEW THE SECRETS YOU HIDE BY KATE HELM

IN HER EYES, NO ONE IS INNOCENT
Georgia Sage has a gift: she can see evil in people. As a courtroom artist she uses her skills to help condemn those who commit terrible crimes. After all, her own brutal past means she knows innocence is even rarer than justice. But when she is drawn back into the trial that defined her career – a case of twisted family betrayal – she realises that her own reckless pursuit of justice may have helped the guilty go free.
As Georgia gets closer to the truth behind that case, something happens that threatens not only her career, but even her sanity. At first, she fears her guilt around the events of her terrible childhood is finally coming back to haunt her.

But the truth turns out to be even more terrifying . . .

BLOG TOUR THE LOST MAN BY JANE HARPER

Two brothers meet at the remote border of their vast cattle properties under the unrelenting sun of the outback. In an isolated part of Australia, they are each other’s nearest neighbour, their homes hours apart.

They are at the stockman’s grave, a landmark so old that no one can remember who is buried there. But today, the scant shadow it casts was the last hope for their middle brother, Cameron. The Bright family’s quiet existence is thrown into grief and anguish.

Something had been troubling Cameron. Did he choose to walk to his death? Because if he didn’t, the isolation of the outback leaves few suspects…

Firstly a big thank you to the publishers for my copy to review and having me on the tour. Ive been lucky enough to read proofs of all her books now and its so exciting to see her success.

Set in muggy atmospheric location this is packed with tension.

Jane is a incredible storyteller as she weaves the tale into the pages.

We find out whats happened at the start and work our way to the truth.

Everyone seems to be hiding something and everything is not as it seems. Quite often the case the truth hurts.

A slightly different angle for this author with a slower pace but i think that’s because the focus is more on the charactars.

Her descriptive writing transports you to Australia which is mot a bad thing during a English winter.
