The Chain by Adrian McKinty @adrianmckinty @orionbooks #TheChain #Bookreview #Netgalley

Oohh I think all of you thriller lovers are going to LOVE this one!!

Hello from a surprisingly sunny UK, the sun is out, and because it doesn’t happen very often, we don’t know what to do with ourselves LOL.

So here I am to bring you a review for this little cracker of a thriller, that will keep you on the edge of your seat, right until the very end!

Why Did You Pick It Up Vicci?

Well, I was doing my usual picking-too-many-to-read-and-review-in-time choices on NetGalley (As you do!) and I read the blurb to this one, and I just couldn’t pass it by, it sounded fantastic, and just up my street.

Let’s play a game of “Would you rather” …….

Would you rather be a victim, or an abuser?

What if you had to be both?

This is what Rachel is dealing with. After dropping her daughter off at the bus stop, as she does every morning, she gets a call from a woman, the woman explains that she has kidnapped her daughter Kylie and she will only get her back by following just a few simple rules, if these rules are not followed, she will kill her.

  1. No authorities, and no police!
  2. Pay a ransom…….. a staple in a kidnapping right?
  3. Kidnap a child…….are you intrigued now?
  4. Call that child’s parents and give them the same information that you are getting right now.
  5. Hold that kidnapped child somewhere, until the parents of the child have paid the ransom, and also kidnapped another child…….I can see your eyebrows raising!
  6. Until all of the above have been completed, Kylie will be held.
  7. And here is the kicker!! – After Rachel has followed the rules above, the child of the woman on the phone will be released!

And so on, and so on…

Welcome friends, to The Chain

You see, what is so clever about this book, is that it plays on the “what would you do for your child” part of you, and because you are there with Rachel all of the way, it makes you think ‘what would I do’?

Would I do anything to protect my child? Abso-bloody-lutely, but the thought of putting another parent through the same trauma as you are going through right now is just heartbreaking. And you know that when you get told they will kill your child, you believe them, because their own child is at risk too!

You’ll never look at one of those silly chain letters again!!

Grab this one when it is released on 9th July

You’re Welcome ๐Ÿ˜‰

Mine by Courtney Cole @Court_Writes @gallerybooks #bookreview #Mine

Happy Wednesday evening!

Excited to share with you today my review for this book that I could not put down! This was a wild and crazy ride from first page to last and I loved it!๐ŸŒŠ

My Thoughts

แด€สŸสŸ แด€ส™แดแด€ส€แด… แด›สœแด‡ แด„ส€แด€แดขส แด›ส€แด€ษชษด!

Courtney Cole! Yes! Girl! Yes! Hell have no fury like a woman scorned! So what happens when there are two? Well batten down those hatches or in this case those hurricane shutters. This was one wild and crazy storm of emotion! Tessa finds herself home alone in the middle of a hurricane, she is unable to find her iPad so she grabs her husbands. And what does she find? Messages of a suggestive nature from another woman. So what does she do? Messages her back pretending to be her husband and invites The other woman over.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป itโ€™s not long before Lindsay shows up and that is when the fun begins!

Oh how I love a book about supposedly normal people behaving irrationally, impulsively, illogically, they SNAP! I have to admit in this book Tessa had all my support, I completely understood why she snapped! I mean seriously what would you do in the same situation? Now in general Iโ€™d say you should blame your spouse rather than the other person, but he was in New York at the time. Whatโ€™s a girl to do? So while the wind raged outside the house Tessa raged inside. Tessa was a sympathetic and likable character, you learned a lot about her backstory. I had a lot of respect for her as a woman and as a mother. Lindsay on the other hand, letโ€™s just say my opinion of Lindsay was the same as Tessaโ€™s from beginning to end. The story was told from both womenโ€™s perspectives and I thought that gave us such insight into the full story. And what about the husband Ethan? Well I have one word for him… dog! Actually thatโ€™s kind of an insult to dogs.

This was a fast-paced addictive read that kept me gripped from first page to last. It was full of tension, Drama, and the perfect amount of crazy! If you like books that take you on a ride on the crazy train then… ALL ABOARD!๐Ÿš‚

*** Big thanks to Gallery for my gifted copy ***

About the Book

The USA Today and New York Times best-selling author of the โ€œraw, powerful, heart-wrenchingโ€ (Robyn Harding) Saving Beck delivers a riveting and heart-pounding story of a crumbling marriage rocked by an affair – as betrayal and jealousy begin to consume both wife and mistress, forever intertwining their fates. 
Heโ€™s mine. 
Thatโ€™s what both Tessa and Lindsey believe about Ethan. But after getting caught in an affair months ago, Ethan ended things with Lindsey in an attempt to win back his wife. Lindsey refuses to let go of the relationship so easily and begins stalking Tessa. Tessa, still shattered from Ethanโ€™s infidelity, finally hits her breaking point and snaps, devising a plan to lure Lindsey to her home one weekend when her husband is away. 
Told in alternating perspectives and set over the course of a weekend,
 Mine explores the emotional complexity of infidelity and its aftermath and what happens when those two scorned women finally meet face-to-face.

*** 1 Star for this blurb! This isn’t really how any of this happened at all, great book bad blurb! I should start rating all the blurbs!๐Ÿ˜‚

So what does she do? Messages her back pretending to be her husband and invites The other woman over.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป itโ€™s not long before Lindsay shows up and that is when the fun begins! Oh how I love a book about supposedly normal people behaving irrationally, impulsively, illogically, they SNAP! I have to admit in this book Tessa had all my support, I completely understood why she snapped! I mean seriously what would you do in the same situation? Now in general Iโ€™d say you should blame your spouse rather than the other person, but he was in New York at the time. Whatโ€™s a girl to do? So while the wind raged outside the house Tessa raged inside. Tessa was a sympathetic and likable character, you learned a lot about her backstory. I had a lot of respect for her as a woman and as a mother. Lindsay on the other hand, letโ€™s just say my opinion of Lindsay was the same as Tessaโ€™s from beginning to end. The story was told from both womenโ€™s perspectives and I thought that gave us such insight into the full story. And what about the husband Ethan? Well I have one word for him… dog! Actually thatโ€™s kind of an insult to dogs. This was a fast-paced addictive read that kept me gripped from first page to last. It was full of tension, Drama, and the perfect amount of crazy! If you like books that take you on a ride on the crazy train then… ALL ABOARD!๐Ÿš‚ #bookreview #mine #pageturner #crazytrain #bookstagrammer #bookblogger #thrillerbooks #booklov #lovebooks #booksarelife #alwaysreading #readinglife #bibliophile #bookish #newbook #newbookalert

Saving Meghan by D. J. Palmer @StMartinsPress #bookreview #savingmegan

Happy Sunday all!

Excited to share with you my review for this book that kept me on my toes! I loved trying to figure out what was going on throughout this engaging story!๐Ÿ’œ

My Thoughts

riveting. Tense. Consuming.

Wow! What a ride! This book kept me on my toes, kept me guessing, and then second-guessing. Iโ€™d imagine having a sick child would be devastating and having a sick child without a definitive diagnosis would be frustrating. Throughout this book I did feel for Becky, but in the back of my mind I kept thinking is this Munchausen by Proxy? Is she making her child sick? Is Megan really sick? Or is something else going on here? So many questions so few answers.

The book starts off with Becky on a plane to LA about to take off. When she receives a message from her husband that Megan is in the hospital becky demands her way off the plane. Medical exam after medical exam, test after test, and still no answers to what is wrong with Megan. Megan was once an active soccer star who excelled in school, now she is too tired to even make it to school most days. You know Megan is hiding things, keeping secrets, but does that have anything to do with her illness? Is it stress induced? Is it all in her head? Or is it really her mother who is causing all this? I truly had no idea, but boy oh boy did I want some answers!

This book had some pulse pounding moments, with some over-the-top antics. Admittedly this book wasnโ€™t always believable and sometimes I did question the judgment of the medical professionals and the parents, but for me none of that mattered because this was just so entertaining. I liked how it really kept you trying to guess the outcome until almost the bitter end. Even though I figured some of it out, I certainly did not figure it all out. Simply put this was an engaging story that kept me guessing. The ending was satisfying and the getting there was a lot of fun! 8/8

*** many thanks to St. Martinโ€™s Press for my copy of this book ***

About the Book

Can you love someone to death? 
Some would say Becky Gerard is a devoted mother and would do anything for her only child. Others, including her husband, Carl, claim she’s obsessed and can’t stop the vicious circle of finding a cure at her daughter’s expense. 
Fifteen-year-old Meghan has been in and out of hospitals with a plague of unexplained illnesses. But when the ailments take a sharp turn, clashing medical opinions begin to raise questions about the puzzling nature of Meghanโ€™s illness. Doctors suspect Munchausen syndrome by proxy, a rare behavioral disorder where the primary caretaker seeks medical help for made-up symptoms of a child. Is this what’s going on? Or is there something even more sinister at hand? 
As the Gerards grow more and more suspicious of each other and their medical team, Becky must race against time to prove her daughter has a deadly disease. But first, she must confront her darkest fears and family secrets that threaten to not only upend her once-ordered life…but to destroy it.

The Bone Collector by Jeffery Deaver (Lincoln Rhyme, #1) #Mystery #Thriller #Crime #AudiobookReview

Hello book friends,

A little Oldie-but-goldie review today, I keep meaning to read the rest of the series but keep getting distracted but other pretty books Lol

Why did you pick it  up Vicci? – Well it was an Audible Daily Deal so I thought ‘Why not!’ I’d already seen the movie about a hundred times so I was interested in how the book measured against it.

IntGdBN4_400x400

My Thoughts

WOAH this is sooo much better than the movie, and I loved the movie (I must have seen it 20 times)

Lincoln Rhyme is a forensic criminalist who is good as his job, brilliant in fact and was often called to help with crime scenes as he is the best…… was the best.

After a terrible accident Lincoln has ended up lying in a hospital bed and paralysed, now as a quadriplegic Lincoln can only dream of his old job, until he gets a visit from an old friend.

There has been a murder, a gruesome one at that, and the murderer has left clues to another one that is going to happen, the clues were found by Amelia Sachs, a street cop who is then paired with Rhymes to help solves these grizzly crimes.

Lincoln and Sachs are a good pairing, him in his bed talking Amelia through what he wants her to do.
He is also a very angry man who doesn’t want to live any more, and has arranged his own suicide, however the job seems to be getting his creative juices flowing again.

I liked the narration of this book and the gruesome murders were even more graphic when they are being spoken to you.

If you have seen the movie i would take it with a pinch of salt, it is completely different to the book, different murders, people, even the bad guy at the end is different.

So even though it is a brilliant movie, the book always does it better.

IntGdBN4_400x400

About the book

Lincoln Rhyme was once a brilliant criminologist, a genius in the field of forensics — until an accident left him physically and emotionally shattered. But now a diabolical killer is challenging Rhyme to a terrifying and ingenious duel of wits.

With police detective Amelia Sachs by his side, Rhyme must follow a labyrinth of clues that reaches back to a dark chapter in New York City’s past — and reach further into the darkness of the mind of a madman who won’t stop until he has stripped life down to the bone.

Imagine turning up to your own party, and recognising no one. Your best friend has just created your worst nightmare.

Doesn’t that just make you go ohhhh!!!

I really enjoyed this twisty little thriller, it had just enough of โ€œis it him or her?โ€ vibe to it to keep me on the edge of my seat.

Louisa is about to turn 40 and is a brand new mother, her little Noah was an unexpected surprise but she loves him fiercely, even though she is completely exhausted.

Louisa seems to have forgotten what it was like to be a new mother, considering her daughter is now a teenager, and all of the sleep deprivation seems to be taking a toll on her, she is forgetting things and huge parts of her day seem to go by without her even noticing.

It gets to the point where she even starts to forget to feed the baby!

Her best friend Tiff thinks she needs a bit of a pick-me-up, and arranges a surprise 40th birthday party for Louisa, because she doesnโ€™t speak much about her past Tiff is at a bit of a loss on who to invite, so she goes to the place where all your friends are, Facebook, and promptly invites all of Louisa’s old school friends.

And who should turn up out of the woodwork but Oliver, Louisaโ€™s old boyfriend and his new wife! He is super happy to see Louisa…. until he turns up at her house the next day to tell her that his wife is missing!

With twists and turns at every corner, you will be wondering who is telling the truth, and what secrets they are all hiding.

About the book

The Missing Wife
By Sam Carrington
Avon Books UK
Pub Date 27 Jun 2019

Imagine turning up to your own party, and recognising no one. Your best friend has just created your worst nightmare.

Louisa is an exhausted, sleep-deprived new mother and, approaching her fortieth birthday, the very last thing she wants to do is celebrate.

But when her best friend Tiff organises a surprise party, inviting the entire list of Louโ€™s Facebook friends, sheโ€™s faced with a new source of anxiety altogether: a room full of old college classmates who she hasnโ€™t spoken to in twenty years. And one person in particular she never expected to see again is there โ€“ her ex-boyfriend from college, the handsome and charismatic Oliver Dunmore.

When Oliverโ€™s wife Melissa goes missing after the party, everyone remembers what happened that night differently. It could be the alcohol, but it seems more than one person has something to hide.

Louisa is determined to find the truth about what happened to Melissa. But just how far does she need to lookโ€ฆ?

One simple Facebook invitation unfolds into something both tragic and monstrous; a story of obsessive love, breath-taking deception and masterful manipulation.

The Night Visitors by Carol Goodman @C_Goodmania @WmMorrowBooks #bookreview #thenightvisitors

Happy Tuesday all!

Excited to share with you today my review for this intense thriller! I am featuring this book on Instagram today if you want to check it out follow my link below! But you can read my review right here right now!๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

My Thoughts

An Erie and atmospheric thriller.Brimming with tension and peppered with the supernatural!

Carol Goodman has crafted a creepy and addictive tale that will keep you up far past your bedtime. Unique and clever, this is a story you donโ€™t just read you experience. Miss Goodmans descriptive writing will have you shuttering and covered in goosebumps. The feeling of impending doom and the cold of the snow seep through the pages of this book.

There is an element of the Supernatural in this book that added the perfect amount of tension to the story.

Alice and Oren arrive in a small town in the Catskills by bus in the middle of the night. Mattie A complete stranger is waiting for them at the bus station. She works for an agency that finds placement for women and children fleaing domestic abuse. Mattie is immediately drawn to Oren, for that reason and the impending blizzard she takes them home with her rather than to the shelter. Mattie still lives in her family home, a once beautiful old Victorian now in need of much repair. The house was as much a character in the story as Mattie, Alice, and Oren. Each of these characters is hiding something and the truth might possibly put their lives in danger. Who can be trusted? And what will happen when the secrets are revealed?

A creepy house, a brutal snowstorm, intriguing characters, and dark secrets all make for a compelling story. I really liked both Alice and Mattie, But I was also suspicious of both of them throughout the book. Oren was an adorable kid and I loved his passion for Star Wars. I really wanted everything to work out for all these characters, I just wasnโ€™t quite sure what that was? I loved how the layers of this story were peeled away and the truth was eventually laid bare. Towards the end of this book I was seriously on the edge of my seat, the tension was palpable, and the results startling.

A cunning tale that was simultaneously creepy and heartwarming. A unique thriller packed with twists and turns and a shocking end!

*** many thanks to William morrow for my copy of this book ***

About the Book

The latest thriller from the internationally best-selling author of The Lake of Dead Languages and The Other Mother, a story of mistaken identities and missed chances, forgiveness, and vengeance.
โ€œCarol Goodman is, simply put, a stellar writer.โ€ (Lisa Unger, New York Times best-selling author of The Red Hunter)
Alice gets off a bus in the middle of a snowstorm in Delphi, NY. She is fleeing an abusive relationship and desperate to protect Oren, 10 years old, a major Star Wars fan and wise beyond his years. Though Alice is wary, Oren bonds nearly instantly with Mattie, a social worker in her 50s who lives in an enormous, rundown house in the middle of the woods. 
Mattie lives alone and is always available, and so she is the person the hotline always calls when they need a late-night pickup. And although according to protocol, Mattie should take Alice and Oren to a local shelter, instead, she brings them home for the night. She has plenty of room, she says. What she doesn’t say is that Oren reminds her of her little brother, who died 30 years ago at the age of 10.
But Mattie isn’t the only one withholding elements of the truth. Alice is keeping her own secrets. And as the snowstorm worsens around them, each woman’s past will prove itself unburied, stirring up threats both within and without.

Treason by Rick Campbell @StMartinsPress #bookreview #treason

Happy Thursday bibliophiles!

I have a special treat for you all today, A review from my dad! When I found this book on my doorstep I just knew my dad would be the perfect reader. He is a retired aeronautical engineer who worked in the US defense industry for most his career. And I was right my dad thoroughly enjoyed this intriguing book and wrote a wonderful review that you can find below! My parents are both avid readers and I enjoy sharing my love of books with them!๐ŸŒŽ๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒ

My Dad’s Thoughts

Treason tells the story of a sequence of incidents involving the United States and a post-Putin Russia.  The primary action involves Navy Seals supporting and rescuing highest-level members of the U.S. and Russian governments.  The action is rapid and the application of high tech provides a fascinating insight to how future asymmetric skirmishes may be fought.
Present day weaponry has been modernized by better and more-compact electronics and more capable surveillance and detection.   Treason is rampant:  a key Russian upgrade was the direct result of a spy selling them capability from Silicon Valley.  This upgrade was instrumental the planning and carrying out of a coup.
Valuable aids to the reader are a list of characters and a map, a help for ones who must read the book in segments and not straight through.
The book is well written and the story proceeds smoothly.   I enjoyed Treason and highly recommend it.

About the Book

In Rick Campbellโ€™s newest thriller, a military coup in Russia leads to a swift invasion of former Soviet territories – while the US has been rendered powerless to respond. 
In Russia, the military is anxious to assert its military strength and regain its role as a superpower. The Russian president refuses to greenlight a bold plan to disable American strategic nuclear capability and retake Ukraine and the Baltic States, fearing the potential consequences of involving nuclear weapons. But the generals won’t have it and at the first opportunity, they overthrow the president in a military coup. Then they use a narrow window to initiate their bold plan – the Zolotov option – which will render all of America’s B2 bombers and ballistic missiles useless. With the US off the board, they swiftly invade Ukraine with an overwhelming force, an invading Army that even NATO can’t hope to resist. 
Now, it’s game on. Without their primary weapons, the US has to find a way to fight back on multiple fronts. If they’re to have any chance, they’ll have to overcome the malware that has grounded their ballistic missiles and planes, as well as secretly land a SEAL team to help rescue the imprisoned Russian president, and help retake control from the forces that are driving Europe into a continental war. 
Rick Campbell, one of the finest young military thriller writers, returns with his biggest and boldest book to date.

Until the Day I Die by Emily Carpenter @EmilyDCarpenter @AmazonPub @LUAuthors #bookreview #untilthedayidie

Happy Tuesday bibliophiles!

Excited to share with you today my review for this outrageous thriller that I absolutely loved! This was a buddy read with Kenzie and I’m so happy she talked me into giving this author a shot!๐Ÿ’ซ

My Thoughts

this was an entertaining thriller packed with twists, turns and delights!

Emily Carpenter will take you on a wild and crazy ride in this outrageouss thriller! This is one of those books where you just need to throw believability out the window and settle in for a deliciously indulgent story. I mean it is called fiction for a reason, and sometimes it is nice just to escape reality and have some fun! This book is definitely over the top and will cause some eye rolling, but I loved… EVERY! SINGLE! MINUTE!

Shorie is heading to Auburn university, and is less than thrilled about it. She is still grieving for the loss of her father and would rather stay home and work for the family company Jax. Jax is a hugely popular app that monitors your spending and keeps you on budget as well as on task. Erin, Shorieโ€™s mom is insisting that she go to college, she is also deep in grief and contemplating selling the company. The problem is the companyโ€™s other partners arenโ€™t too keen to sell, and Erin has been acting irrationally lately. After Erin shows up to a frat party on Shorieโ€™s first night at Auburn seemingly drunk, she is rushed off to rehab/restoration in the Caribbean. Meanwhile Shorie has discovered some anomalies at Jax and is determined to find out what is going on. What transpires is a whirlwind of action that will keep you quickly flipping those pages!

The story bounces between two storylines told from Shorie and Erinโ€™s perspectives. Admittedly I was instantly drawn into Shorieโ€™s story while it took me a little more time to get into Erinโ€™s mess. However, once Erin sets foot into that lush creepy rehab/restoration center I was hooked. The characters were well drawn, the plot was perfectly paced, this was just a good time fun read. Recommend!

*** many thanks to Lake Union for my copy of this book ***

About the Book

From the bestselling author of Burying the Honeysuckle Girls comes a riveting novel about a mother and daughter separated by grief, secrets, and a conspiracy that threatens to destroy their lives.
If thereโ€™s a healthy way to grieve, Erin Gaines hasnโ€™t found it. After her husbandโ€™s sudden death, the runaway success of the tech company they built with their best friends has become overwhelming. Her nerves are frayed, sheโ€™s disengaged, and her frustrated daughter, Shorie, is pulling away from her. Maybe Erinโ€™s friends and family are right. Maybe a few weeks at a spa resort in the Caribbean islands is just what she needs to hit the reset buttonโ€ฆ
Shorie is not only worried about her motherโ€™s mental state but also for the future of her parentsโ€™ company. Especially when she begins to suspect that not all of Erinโ€™s colleagues can be trusted. It seems someone is spinning an intricate web of deception – the foundation for a conspiracy that is putting everything, and everyone she loves, at risk. And she may be the only one who can stop it.
Now, thousands of miles away in a remote, and oftentimes menacing, tropical jungle, Erin is beginning to have similar fears. Things at the resort arenโ€™t exactly how the brochure described, and unless sheโ€™s losing her mind, Erinโ€™s pretty sure she wasnโ€™t sent there to recover – she was sent to disappear.

Two Can Keep a Secret by Karen McManus @writerkmc @PenguinUKBooks #AudiobookReview #YA #Mystery #Thriller

Hi Book lovers! Vicci again,

I love a good YA read, but I also love to get my teeth into a good Thriller, so this one was killing two birds with one stone.

Why did I pick it up? – This is the author of One of Us is Lying, a great YA book that I really enjoyed last year, so I grabbed this one as soon as I could.

81DitPFuVqL

Two Can Keep a Secretโ€ฉBy: Karen McManusโ€ฉNarrated by: Sophie AmossKirby Heyborneโ€ฉLength: 10 hrs and 6 minsโ€ฉUnabridged Audiobookโ€ฉRelease date: 10-01-19โ€ฉPublisher: Penguin Books Ltd

My Thoughts

This was a great little Thriller that kept me on my toes, and thinking “It was him…NO it was her…NO it was them..NO, who the hell is it?”

Ellery and her twin brother Ezra are going to live with their grandmother, while their mother is away in Rehab, Echo Ridge is their mothers hometown and this is the twins first time there.

The twins soon find that the town is seeped in secrets and lies, and it also seems that girls seem to go missing.  5 years ago a girl went missing and was found murdered, this is not the first time this has happened int this town, and it seems like history is going to start repeating itself again!

Ellery is a True Crime nut, and things just don’t seem right to her.

๐ŸŽง๐ŸŽง – Narrated by Sophie Amoss, and Kirby Heyborne,

They did a fantastic job narrating this book and kept me on my toes throughout.

81DitPFuVqL

About the Book

Ellery’s never been to Echo Ridge, but she’s heard all about it. It’s where her aunt went missing at age 16, never to return. Where a homecoming queen’s murder five years ago made national news. And where Ellery now has to live with a grandmother she barely knows, after her failed-actress mother lands in rehab. No one knows what happened to either girl, and Ellery’s family is still haunted by their loss.

Malcolm grew up in the shadow of the homecoming queen’s death. His older brother was the prime suspect and left Echo Ridge in disgrace. His mother’s remarriage vaulted her and Malcolm into Echo Ridge’s upper crust, but their new status grows shaky when mysterious threats around town hint that a killer plans to strike again. No one has forgotten Malcolm’s brother – and nobody trusts him when he suddenly returns to town.

Ellery and Malcolm both know it’s hard to let go when you don’t have closure. Then another girl disappears, and Ellery and Malcolm were the last people to see her alive. As they race to unravel what happened, they realize every secret has layers in Echo Ridge. The truth might be closer to home than either of them wants to believe.

And somebody would kill to keep it hidden.

Shelter In Place by Nora Roberts #NoraRoberts @justjanuary #Mystery #Thriller #Romance @audible_com #AudiobookReview

โญโญโญโญ.5 Deputy Barney Stars

The Blurb

Sometimes, there is nowhere safe to hide.

It was a typical evening at a mall outside Portland, Maine. Three teenage friends waited for the movie to start. A boy flirted with the girl selling sunglasses. Mothers and children shopped together, and the manager at the video-game store tended to customers. Then the shooters arrived.

The chaos and carnage lasted only eight minutes before the killers were taken down. But for those who lived through it, the effects would last forever. In the years that followed, one would dedicate himself to a law enforcement career. Another would close herself off, trying to bury the memory of huddling in a ladies’ room, hopelessly clutching her cell phone–until she finally found a way to pour her emotions into her art.

But one person wasn’t satisfied with the shockingly high death toll at the DownEast Mall. And as the survivors slowly heal, find shelter, and rebuild, they will discover that another conspirator is lying in wait–and this time, there might be nowhere safe to hide.

My Thoughts

โญโญโญโญ.5 Deputy Barney Stars

โญโญโญโญ.5 Deputy Barney Stars

After listening to one of Nora Roberts books the other week, a few more came up in the U.S Audible sale, so I may….or may not have bought a few more to listen to …ummm 4 more!!

I’ve decided that I really like her writing style, and the fact that January LaVoy was narrating it made it even more of a one click for me, Ms LaVoy has been bumped up to my one-click narrator list!

On a normal evening in Portland Maine, Simone is waiting with her two friends to watch a movie in the DownEast Mall, while her mother and her sister do a little bit of retail therapy while waiting for the movie to finish.

That evening will be one that they will ALL never forget.

While waiting for the movie to start Simone decides to visit the bathroom.

Thinking that the movie is really loud as she already hears the gunshots, the moment she opens the bathroom door, she realises that this is not a movie!

For 8 minutes the lives of the people in that Mall was pure terror, the death toll that day was pure heartbreak.

The story then jumps forward years later and we find out what happened to a select few of the people who were there that fateful day.

I absolutely loved this story, Roberts captured the characters so well, Simone and her grandmother CiCi were just fab (I wish that I had a grandmother like that)

I love Reed and the way that he took such a sad tragedy and made a future for himself as a cop, and I love the fact that the person that helped him do that was Essie.

And then we get to the meat of the story, someone isn’t happy about the way that the shooting went down, there were survivors after all, and that should have never happened, perhaps they should finish the job!

An absolute page turner (even though I listened to it) that I couldn’t put down, and I’m going to slowly make my way through Ms Roberts back-catalogue!

๐ŸŽง๐ŸŽง – Narrated by January LaVoy, who I mentioned before is firm becoming a favourite narrator of mine, I picked this up because of her, and I wasn’t disappointed at all. Fantastic narration, and a great story.

Grab this little page turner and strap yourself in!
