My Book Review Of Harriet Walker’s Brilliant Gripping Thriller The New Girl @harrywalker1 @HodderBooks #TheNewGirl On My Blog

She’s borrowed your life. What if she decides to keep it?

‘Keenly observed and brimming with tension, The New Girl is a must-read’ Clare Mackintosh


Glamorous Margot Jones is the fashion editor at glossy women’s magazine Haute, and pregnant with her first child. Margot’s used to her carefully curated life being the object of other women’s envy – who wouldn’t want her successful career, loving husband, beautiful house and stylish wardrobe?

Maggie, a freelance journalist, certainly knows she doesn’t measure up. So when Margot gets in touch to suggest she apply for her maternity cover at Haute, Maggie seizes the chance at living a better life – even if it’s only temporary.

But the simultaneous arrival of Margot’s baby and a brutal end to her oldest friendship sends Margot into a spiral of suspicion and paranoia. Are Maggie’s motives as innocent as they seem? And what happens at the end of the year when Margot wants her old life back – especially if Maggie decides she doesn’t want to leave?

My thoughts about this brilliantly written gripping thriller,was outstanding, what I loved about this nail biting thriller was that it is about trust, greed, friendship,and Rivalry. That teaches as not to trust anyone.What happens if one day you exchange your life with someone,who you really trust,but that person, betrays you and she decides to keep it,was just fantastic. Debut author Harriet Walker, has written a powerful story that not only it’s good,but a masterpiece,loved how Harriet Walker, she balances the characters and the story together was fantastic.the characters were brilliant. I loved the Rivalry tensions between Margot and Maggie was fantastic,and to find out the real reason what Maggie’s intentions were was just fantastic. Highly recommended. A brilliantly written gripping debut that will take you on a Journey, that is about friendship,trust, Rivalry and jealousy. I would like to say thank you,to author Harriet Walker,and Hodder and Stoughton Books for giving me a chance to read and review this outstanding book.💥💥💥💥💥⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Her debut novel, Hold Your Tongue, is the result of those courses.

My Book Review Of @JackLeavers brilliant blockbuster #AppetiteForRisk On My Blog

A fast-paced action thriller inspired by real events in the aftermath of the Iraq War.

With Saddam Hussein deposed and an entire country in need of rebuilding, former Royal Marine John Pierce hears the siren call of adventure and opportunity. His fledgling UK business is struggling to support his young family and he has connections in the Iraqi capital – fate seems to point one way.

In early 2004, Pierce rolls the dice when he jumps into a taxi in Jordan and heads for the turmoil of postwar Baghdad to grab a share of the reconstruction gold rush. But when Iraq spirals into the hell of a full-blown insurgency, he must rely on his wits and his local friends if he’s to evade the rampant bloodshed.

As the action rolls across the blood-stained Iraqi landscape and embraces London’s seedy underbelly, Pierce tangles with the authorities at home and finds himself thrust into the heart of British and American covert operations against Al-Qaeda in Iraq.

Having set out with little more than ambitious goals and an appetite for risk, can a determined ex-bootneck survive the mounting chaos unscathed and succeed in hitting the jackpot?

My Review Of Yrsa Sigurdardottir’s Gallows Rock @YrsaSig #GallowsRock @HodderBooks @HodderPublicity

On a jagged, bleak lava field just outside Reykjavik stands the Gallows Rock. Once a place of execution, it is now a tourist attraction. Until this morning, when a man was found hanging from it…

The nail embedded in his chest proves it wasn’t suicide. But when the police go to his flat, a further puzzle awaits: a four-year-old boy has been left there. He doesn’t seem to have any link with the victim, his parents cannot be found, and his drawings show he witnessed something terrible.

As detective Huldar hunts the killer, and child psychologist Freyja looks for the boy’s parents, the mystery unfolds: a story of violence, entitlement, and revenge.

My thoughts about this dark twisted police murder mystery thriller,was mindblowing a well written murder mystery, that I wanted to find out the mystery of the hanging man, was brilliant, and also of the dead child in the flat was also excellent, The character, I loved the most,was Detective Huldar was fantastic,who will not stop until he reaches to find the killer was fantastic. The other characters, in this book were just what could I say outstanding. What I loved about the story, the most was finding out about the mystery of the Gallows Rock, the murder mystery that unfolds, and who the killer is took my breath away. The story that is set in Iceland, is truly remarkable.Author Yrsa Sigurdardottir’s writing, is brilliant. I love how she balances the story and the characters. a well written murder mystery thriller, that has suspense, had me turning the pages. highly recommended a nail biting ending.

My Book review of Jennifer L Cahill’s One on my blog @JLCAuthor

One? is the first book in a contemporary fiction trilogy, looking at finding ‘the one’ in the modern world and how relationship models are shifting in the most innovative period in living history. The story starts in 2005, and spans ten years following the characters from the challenges of their twenties into their thirties.

It’s London in the mid-noughties before Facebook, iPhones and ubiquitous wifi.
Zara has just moved to London for her first real job and struggles to find her feet in a big city with no instruction manual. Penelope works night and day in an investment bank with little or no time for love. At twenty-eight she is positively ancient as far as her mother is concerned and the pressure is on for her to settle down as the big 3-0 is looming. Charlie spends night and day with his band who are constantly teetering on the verge of greatness. Richard has relocated to London from his castle in Scotland in search of the one, and Alyx is barely in one place long enough to hold down a relationship let alone think about the future. One? follows the highs and lows of a group of twenty-somethings living in leafy SW4.

My thoughts about this brilliant book, that’s has heart touching moments, about love and friendship, was amazing. It’s about how people move to London, with ambitions that we all have, in today’s society, a struggle we have to go through in life be it work family tensions, how we live in today’s modern world. What I liked about this book, was it teaches as many things the challenges what we have to go through in life.The characters in this book were amazing, i loved Zara was fantastic, Charlie and Richard were lovable. The most important character I loved was Penelope, who works day and night as a investment banker was brilliant. A well written story that should be adapted on to the big screen. author Jennifer L Cahill’s writing is beyond excellent,her writing style is fascinating. A well written story that is truly remarkable, about high and lows in are lives we have to thourgh. Highly recommended.If you want to read a brilliant light heart touching novel then this ones for you. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

My Book Blog Review of Antonia Hodgson’s The Silver Collar @AntoniaHodgson @HodderBooks @Stevie_Coops

Autumn, 1728. Life is good for Thomas Hawkins and Kitty Sparks. The Cocked Pistol, Kitty’s wickedly disreputable bookshop, is a roaring success. Tom’s celebrity as ‘Half-Hanged Hawkins’, the man who survived the gallows, is also proving useful.

With the help of his ward, Sam Fleet, and Sam’s underworld connections, Tom’s investigation leads to a fine house in Jermyn Street, the elegant, enigmatic Lady Vanhook and an escaped slave by the name of Jeremiah Patience.
But for Tom and Kitty, discovering the truth is only the beginning of the nightmare.
A powerful, deeply immersive thriller, The Silver Collar is both a celebration of love and friendship, and a terrifying exploration of evil.

My thoughts about this brilliant crime historical crime thriller that takes as back to London 1728, was outstanding. Antonia Hodgson’s The Silver Collar is a gripping powerful thriller that is about revenge, love, sacrifice and finding out who wants to kill Tom is brilliant. amazing characters, Thomas Hawkins character, is truly remarkable his love relationship with Kitty Sparks is truly amazing, another character is outstanding, is Sam Fleet, who considers Tom as his brother.
