I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 6 Just Like Cuttin’ Chicken stars!

Synopsis

What if the world’s worst serial killer…was your dad?

Jasper “Jazz” Dent is a likable teenager. A charmer, one might say.

But he’s also the son of the world’s most infamous serial killer, and for Dear Old Dad, Take Your Son to Work Day was year-round. Jazz has witnessed crime scenes the way cops wish they could—from the criminal’s point of view.

And now bodies are piling up in Lobo’s Nod.

In an effort to clear his name, Jazz joins the police in a hunt for a new serial killer. But Jazz has a secret—could he be more like his father than anyone knows?

Review

This is quite possibly one of my favourite YA series, although that does depend what day it is LOL

Jasper ‘Jazz’ Dent is quite famous, well i say quite, but when your dad is the most infamous serial killer ever, everyone knows who you are.

Billy Dent is the serial killer everyone knows about, he has 123 murders under his belt, and he is currently serving 30 life sentences in jail for his crimes.

Jazz knows all about his fathers killings, One because obviously he is his son, but also, because of the fact that Billy liked to take his son with him to witness the killings!

Jazz basically is every cops wet dream, he has been able to witness crime scenes from the point of view of the killer himself.

As you can imagine with his life the way it is, Jazz isn’t exactly popular, he has a best friend called Howie who was a brilliant character, he was funny and also was someone who Jazz felt that he had to look after because he is a Haemophiliac.
He also has a girlfriend called Connie, she is a lovely girl and is also black, which doesn’t go down too well with his very outspoken and racist Grandma, who is also hilarious (not because she is racist!)

Bodies start to pile up in the town of Lobo’s Nod where Jazz lives, and it seems that Billy Dent is up to his old tricks again, but he can’t be while he is locked up in jail, so it seems that a Copy-cat killer is on the loose.

Jazz thinks that he will be the perfect person to help the police with the investigations, but the more involved he gets, the more he starts to think that he is more like his father than he thought!!

🎧🎧 Narration for this was OUTSTANDING, expertly done by Charlie Thurston, his voice for Billy sent chills down my spine!

* I would say save a credit for this one, but it looks like it is unfortunately not available to download from Audible any more!
If you would like a copy of this then please let me know and i can happily try and send you it via the ‘Send This Book’ feature on the Audible App

If you like Young Adult books then you will LOVE this one!!

How to Bake a New Begining by Lucy Knott

My Thoughts

Emotional! Italian! Scrumptious!

This was a fabulous debut! Filled with so much heart, family, and food! I have read quite a few books lately with sisters that have pretty toxic relationships, so it was so refreshing to read a book so full of sisterly love… don’t have a sister myself, but it looks like such a strong and unique bond, when I read books like this I get a little jealous….

The sisters in this book Amanda, Sabrina, and Luisa, are all at somewhat different stages in their lives… they fight, they advise, they hold each other up, they bake! In the beginning of the book the sisters lose their beloved grandfather, and this leads to a trip to Italy…. not only is this a goodbye trip for their grandfather, but also a journey of rejuvenation and re-discovery…. There is also romance in this book, the sisters all have some complications in their love lives…. and the men? Well they were all pretty swoon worthy! I have to admit though, my favorite relationship was Amanda and Dan I love a good friends to lovers love story!

This book was a perfect blend of emotion and hope… with the beautiful backdrop of Italy, that allows you to travel from the comfort of your bed! With amazing recipes and scrumptious food that you could enjoy without the calories! With a powerful message that you can summarize in this quote“the only thing to fear is fear itself!“

A delight of a book with a holiday vibe that you can enjoy any time of the year! Absolutely recommend this little gem!

*** many thanks to Lucy Knott, Her sister Kelly, and HQ Digital for my copy of this book ***

About the Book

Three sisters. One trip to Italy. The chance to change their lives.

Amanda has always taken the role of big sister seriously. She has her life in order; a fantastic job in a great restaurant, a wonderful house and a best friend who’s a Rockstar. But, Amanda’s beginning to realise that her life is missing one monumental piece…

Sabrina is living the high life in LA. Her Instagram is full of lavish parties, her tweets are brimming with celebrity names, but in reality she’s stuck behind a desk working for a boss who is determined to make her suffer. Is it time for her to stand up and take charge of her life?

Louisa has always been drowned out by her sister’s successes. As the university drop-out she’s always felt third best. But a chance encounter in a little Italian village may be about to change that…

When their beloved grandfather passes away these sisters are forced to take another look at their lives. These three sisters are about to embark on a journey of self-discovery that could just lead them down a road of romance (with a little help from the kitchen)!

Perfect for fans of Jenny Oliver, Carole Mathews and Lucy Diamond.

Have a lovely day! Berit☀️✨
