The French Gift – Kirsty Manning

Wow, what an amazing read this was.  One of those books that when I turned the last page I just sat there for a while and savoured what I had taken in and what I had experienced to let it all sink in. The French Gift is steeped in historical fiction set amongst the atrocities […]

The Husband Poisoner – Tanya Bretherton

So admittedly my husband was a little concerned when he discovered this book sitting on my kitchen bench – lol. This was such a fascinating read, and unlike anything I’ve ever read before.  I don’t usually read a lot of non-fiction books unless they are true crime related and often about stories that are well […]

What Could Be Saved – Liese O’Halloran Schwarz

5 Fabulous Stars for this stunning book. I loved this book so much, it honestly feels like there is a gaping hole in my heart where it used to sit. Described as rich with mystery and family drama, this compelling novel delves into the extraordinary power of sibling love, rivalry and loyalty.  The story begins […]

Dead Letters – Michael Brissenden

A dead politician, a mother’s letters from the grave, a daughter’s quest for answers. OMG I freaking loved this book!!!!  Corrupt politicians, dirty cops, mafia links, gangs, counter terrorism………..seriously, what’s not to love. I was a little nervous going into this one, it’s not the usual type of book I’m drawn to but honestly, once […]

Stalking Claremont – Bret Christian

Exactly as the title states, this book is about the hunt for a serial killer. It is the true story of the disappearance and murder of three young women between 1996 and 1997 from an upmarket suburb of Perth in Western Australia after nights out at a local club.  Sara Spiers disappeared during the early […]

A Necessary Death – Anne Holt

I managed to squeeze in another thriller before year end.  A Necessary Death is a Norwegian crime thriller set across the backdrop of Oslo and into Norway’s rugged mountain ranges. More of a political thriller, the story follows Selma Falck, an investigator who takes up the challenge of looking into the mysterious death of her […]

Tell Me Lies – J.P. Pomare

This one was psychological suspense at its best,  You know the way the story is heading isn’t going to be where it ends.  You know the likely suspect you are being steered towards didn’t do it, but I loved the fact that even though I knew all that, I still didn’t know where it was […]

The Girl Before – JP Delaney

This is my third JP Delaney read and I think it’s my favourite so far.  It’s a few years old now but I’m trying to read his entire backlist because seriously, this guy is insanely good, and this book was insanely good, with emphasis on the word insane – lol. The master of psychological thrillers, […]

The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue – V.E Schwab

What can I say about this book that hasn’t already been said?  What can I say about this book that would even begin to do it justice?  Nothing, okay, end of review. Seriously, this is one of the most beautifully written books I have ever read.  I finished it a few days ago now and […]

The Christmas Killer – Alex Pine

We usually think of warm toasty reads when we think Christmas.  Love stories and happy endings.  Well not this Christmas read…..12 days of Christmas and 12 dead bodies, bring it on. Firstly I have to admit I’m a total sucker for British crime dramas.  My Foxtel IQ is full of police and detective series and […]
