Nine suicides
One Cult
No leader

Nine people arrive one night on Chelsea Bridge. They’ve never met. But at the same time, they run, and leap to their deaths. Each of them received a letter in the post that morning, a pre-written suicide note, and a page containing only four words: Nothing important happened today.

That is how they knew they had been chosen to become a part of the People Of Choice: A mysterious suicide cult whose members have no knowledge of one another.

Thirty-two people on that train witness the event. Two of them will be next. By the morning, People Of Choice are appearing around the globe; it becomes a movement. A social media page that has lain dormant for four years suddenly has thousands of followers. The police are under pressure to find a link between the cult members, to locate a leader that does not seem to exist.

How do you stop a cult when nobody knows they are a member?

I finally got round to reading this which i had heard lots of praise for . And wow what a unique disturbing book!

Cleverly written and thought provoking

I whizzed through and loved it,will definitely be reading more from him.

It was interesting seeing psychological studies referenced especially the ones im studying at the moment .

Carrie’s best friend has an accident and can no longer make the round-the-world trip they’d planned together, so Carrie decides to go it alone.
Violet is also travelling alone, after splitting up with her boyfriend in Thailand. She is also desperate for a ticket on the Trans-Siberian Express, but there is nothing available.
When the two women meet in a Beijing Hotel, Carrie makes the impulsive decision to invite Violet to take her best friend’s place.
Thrown together in a strange country, and the cramped cabin of the train, the women soon form a bond. But as the journey continues, through Mongolia and into Russia, things start to unravel – because one of these women is not who she claims to be…

This is a book thats been on my radar for a while and a new author to me.

A complex story of the dynamics of female friendships. Claustrophobic and incredibly tense.

Disturbing but definitely relatable.

A addictive page turner .

You can picture yourself right there as the writing captures the atmosphere and location perfectly


Laurie is pretty sure love at first sight doesn’t exist. After all, life isn’t a scene from the movies, is it? But then, through a misted-up bus window one freezing day, she sees a man she knows instantly is the one. Their eyes meet, there’s a moment of pure magic…and then her bus drives away.

Laurie thinks she’ll never see the boy from the bus again. But at a party later that year, her best friend Sarah introduces her to the new love of her life. Who is, of course, the boy from the bus.

Determined to let him go, Laurie gets on with her life. But what if fate has other plans?

This was the hyped up book last Christmas so im a bit late to the party. But i finally got a copy and loved everything about it!

I feel like my heart has been on a journey today reading this and wow it felt good to be reminded of the magic of love.

You will be full of emotions as you follow this couple over a few years where everything changes apart from that spark they felt .

Life is messy ,complicated and flies by. This story reminded me of that.

I loved the charactars who all have their own story to share.

Fill your heart with festive warmth this Christmas . Im still picking mine up after swooning hard .

I cant wait for Josies next book .She is a beautiful writer who has created a timeless masterpiece with this story.


After being let go from her job in a swanky hotel just weeks before Christmas, Hattie is feeling lost. Even more so when her high-flying boyfriend announces he’s landed his dream job in Abu Dhabi and asks her to move with him. Luckily, Hattie’s long-time friend Dolly is on hand to help and invites Hattie to spend one last holiday in the small, festive town of Wynbridge, determined to give her a Christmas to remember . . .
Upon Hattie’s arrival, holiday preparations are in full swing. But for Hattie, whose Christmas cheer has long since run out, it’ll take more than mince pies and mistletoe to open her heart to the season once more. Relishing the task of reigniting Hattie’s Christmas spirit, Dolly suggests they create a wish list of all the things the season can offer, and with the helpful hands of Wynbridge’s resident handyman, Beamish, Hattie finds her frosty exterior is starting to thaw.
As Wynbridge prepares for its most spectacular Christmas yet, will Hattie leave snowy England behind for life in a sunnier clime, or will she in fact realise that her heart’s desire lies much closer to home?

Firstly a big thank you to the lovely sj and team for my copy to review . Apologies in taking a while to get to but it was the perfect festive Sunday read.

I absolutely loved it!

Fantastic strong leading ladies each with a lot going on personally. But they have each other to guide them .

This will leave you feeling festive as we join their adventure to get things ticked off the wish list.

However someone has other ideas and isnt afraid to shout about them. Unfortunately i have been in Hatties shoes so could really relate.

Decisions to be made,wounds to be healed and new friendships to be made.

Perfect escapism this Christmas season.



Mapledon, 1989
Two little girls were out playing a game of dares. Only one returned home.
The ten-year-old told police what she saw: village loner Bill ‘Creepy’ Cawley dragged her friend into his truck and disappeared.
No body was found, but her testimony sent Cawley to prison for murder. An open and shut case, the right man behind bars.
The village could sleep safe once again.

Anna thought she had left Mapledon and her nightmares behind but a distraught phone call brings her back to face her past.
30 years ago, someone lied. 30 years ago, the man convicted wasn’t the only guilty party.
Now he’s out of prison and looking for revenge. The question is, who will he start with?

The brilliant laugh-out-loud festive novel from the Number One bestselling author.

Becky Brandon (née Bloomwood) adores Christmas. It’s always the same – Mum and Dad hosting, carols playing, Mum pretending she made the Christmas pudding, and the next-door neighbours coming round for sherry in their terrible festive jumpers.

And now it’s even easier with online bargain-shopping sites – if you spend enough you even get free delivery. Sorted!

But this year looks set to be different. Unable to resist the draw of craft beer and smashed avocado, Becky’s parents are moving to ultra-trendy Shoreditch and have asked Becky if she’ll host Christmas this year. What could possibly go wrong?

With sister Jess demanding a vegan turkey, husband Luke determined that he just wants aftershave again, and little Minnie insisting on a very specific picnic hamper – surely Becky can manage all this, as well as the surprise appearance of an old boyfriend and his pushy new girlfriend, whose motives are far from clear . . .

Will chaos ensue, or will Becky manage to bring comfort and joy to Christmas?

Firstly a huge thank you to Becky and the publishers for my gorgeous copy to arrive. Which arrived with festive goodies. And apologies in my delay in reading.

I haven’t read all this series so wasnt sure if this would affect my enjoyment of the book. But i neednt have worried as i loved every page.

I devoured this tonight and was funny, uplifting and full of christmas cheer.

Becky is a excellent charactar who certainly adds her own touch to whatever she does.

This had me laughing and thinking oh my several times!

Families and christmas …not always plain sailing.

Highly recommend for a great fun festive read.

After The Puppet Show, a new storm is coming . . .

Jared Keaton, chef to the stars. Charming. Charismatic. Psychopath . . . He’s currently serving a life sentence for the brutal murder of his daughter, Elizabeth. Her body was never found and Keaton was convicted largely on the testimony of Detective Sergeant Washington Poe.

So when a young woman staggers into a remote police station with irrefutable evidence that she is Elizabeth Keaton, Poe finds himself on the wrong end of an investigation, one that could cost him much more than his career.

Helped by the only person he trusts, the brilliant but socially awkward Tilly Bradshaw, Poe races to answer the only question that matters: how can someone be both dead and alive at the same time?

And then Elizabeth goes missing again – and all paths of investigation lead back to Poe.

Firstly a huge thanks to Beth at the publishers for my copy and having me on the tour.
