The Arrangement by Robyn Harding @gallerybooks #bookreview #thearrangement

Happy Thursday everybody!

If you like crazy over the top characters doing crazy over-the-top things then do I have a book for you! Loved this one it was so much fun!🍭

My Thoughts

LOVED IT!!! And if you love fast-paced entertaining stories with characters that go completely off the rails you are going to LOVE! IT! TOO!

sugar Daddy vs Sugar Baby! In this corner weighing in at 120 pounds in the slutty dress we have 21-year-old naïve struggling student Natalie. And in the other corner weighing in at 185 pounds in the expensive suit we have wealthy manipulative narcissistic 55-year-old Gabe. Ding ding ding let the fight begin, let the punches begin flying! Just like a boxing match this book is a little messy, a little bloody, will make you a little uncomfortable, but it is oh SO much fun!

Robyn Harding Took me on one wild and crazy ride. Natalie is a struggling art student in New York. So when a classmate tells her about this website where she can become a sugarbaby for a wealthy older man four A lot of money she is extremely intrigued. Gabe is her very first sugar daddy, and even though he is 30 years older than Natalie she is entranced. Soon they enter into an “arrangement“ and Natalie is convinced that they are in love. So when the relationship/arrangement ends Natalie is heartbroken. What follows is stalking, obsession, revenge, and so much juicy goodness! Gabe had really underestimated Natalie’s crazy and he seriously got absolutely everything he deserved. My only tiny complaint with this book is that it didn’t get to the crazy part quicker (but that might just be me). I thought the ending was perfection and so appropriate! TKO! Karma is a bitch!

About the Book

A Pretty Woman tale turns toxic and deadly in this provocative and riveting thriller of sex, obsession, and murder from Robyn Harding, the “master of domestic suspense” (Kathleen Barber) and the USA TODAY best-selling author of The Party and Her Pretty Face.  
Natalie, a young art student in New York City, is struggling to pay her bills when a friend makes a suggestion: why not go online and find a sugar daddy – a wealthy, older man who will pay her for dates, and even give her a monthly allowance? Lots of girls do it, Nat learns. All that’s required is to look pretty and hang on his every word. Sexual favors are optional.
Though more than 30 years her senior, Gabe, a handsome corporate finance attorney, seems like the perfect candidate, and within a month, they are madly in love. At least, Nat is…Gabe already has a family, whom he has no intention of leaving.
So when he abruptly ends things, Nat can’t let go. She begins drinking heavily and stalking him: watching him at work, spying on his wife, even befriending his daughter, who is not much younger than she is. But when a body is found near Gabe’s posh Upper East Side apartment and the police tie her to the murder weapon, she can’t help but think she must have gone too far – she just can’t remember anything that happened that night.
Emotionally powerful and packed with pause-resisting suspense,
 The Arrangement delves into the sordid, all-too-real world of shadowy relationships between wealthy, powerful men and the young women who are caught in their web.

The Dream House by Jess Ryder @jessryderauthor @bookouture #bookreview #thedreamhouse

Happy Wednesday everybody!

Excited to share with you today my review for this engaging domestic thriller! Many thanks to Noelle for my invitation to this tour!🦊

My Thoughts

What happens when your dream house turns into a nightmare! Jess Ryder has cleverly constructed an addictive domestic thriller. Stella has just moved to her dream house with her boyfriend Jack. The house is in need of a lot of work, but Stella can see its potential and has fallen head over heels in love with this home. Then one night there is a knock at the door, Who can possibly be at the door in the middle of the night? It is a strange woman Lori, battered and beaten and in need of a safe place. Lori tell Stella and Jack that she was told this house was a refuge for battered women. Stella is sympathetic and wants to help a girl out… Jack is suspicious. 40 years earlier teen mom Kay thinks she has found her knight in shining armor. But after a while the Knight’s armor starts to tarnish. So much that Kay and her daughter Abby‘s lives might be in danger. Two women living four decades apart, what ties them together?

I am such a sucker for a dual timeline story! I love trying to puzzle together how two seemingly separate Narratives are connected. Both Stella and Kay were likable sympathetic characters. The men in their lives, not so much. I was completely engaged by both stories, although I think I was a little more invested in Stella. The house renovating and this uninvited guest. The story was puzzle together at a perfect pace. I did see a few things coming, but certainly not all. And there was such an obvious connection that I completely missed! Another compelling read from Jess Ryder.

*** Big thanks to Bookouture for my copy of this book ***

About the Book

It’s everything she’s ever wanted…

When I first set eyes on Westhill House with its breath-taking views of the sea I knew Jack and I could make this our forever home.

It may be falling apart with an overgrown garden, but with some tender loving care, we can repair this beautiful building and perhaps our relationship too…

But the more time I spend renovating our new house, the more time Jack is spending at work.

At least Lori is here to keep me company.

She has her own troubles yet she always listens to mine.

She’s helping to restore the house, uncovering its secrets one by one.

Like the children’s drawings under the wallpaper in the back bedroom.

The hidden papers underneath the floorboards in the turret room.

And the fact that Westhill House is a place women used to go to feel safe…

Lori seems to know a lot about Westhill House.

The question is, why?

The Cutting Room by Ashley Dyer @AshleyDyerAuthor @wmmorrowbooks @tlcbooktours @harperaudio #bookreview #audiobook #thecuttingroom

Happy Tuesday all and happy publication day to this deliciously disturbing book!

I’ve been really trying hard not to start any more crime thriller series, but I am certainly glad I gave this one a try! It was seriously SO good! Thank you so much Trish for my invitation to this tour!🎨

About The Cutting Room

• Hardcover: 448 pages
• Publisher: William Morrow (June 18, 2019)

Detectives Ruth Lake and Greg Carver, introduced in the electrifying Splinter in the Blood, must stop a serial killer whose victims are the centerpiece of his macabre works of art.

While Britain is obsessed with the newest hit true-crime television show, Fact, or Fable? detectives Ruth Lake and Greg Carver are tormented by a fiendish flesh-and-blood killer on the loose.

Lured to a “crime scene” by a mysterious digital invitation, Ruth Lake is horrified by what she finds: a bizarre and gruesome tableau surrounded by a crowd of gawkers. The deadly work is the latest “art installation” designed by a diabolical criminal dubbed the Ferryman. Not only is this criminal cold-blooded; he’s a narcissistic exhibitionist desperate for an audience. He’s also clever at promoting his deadly handiwork. Exploiting England’s current true-crime craze, he uses social media to titillate and terrorize the public.

Ruth is joined in the investigation by her partner Greg Carver, who is slowly regaining his strength after a run-in with another sadistic criminal. But Greg can’t seem to shake the bewildering effects of the head wound that nearly ended him. Are the strange auras blurring his vision an annoying side effect of his injury, or could they be something more . . . a tool to help him see a person’s true nature?

In this utterly engrossing and thrilling tale of suspense, a pair of seasoned detectives face off against a wickedly smart and inventive psychopath in a tense, bloody game that leads to a shocking end.

My Thoughts

ᴅɪsᴛᴜʀʙɪɴɢ. ᴅᴇʀᴀɴɢᴇᴅ. ᴅᴇʟɪᴄɪᴏᴜsʟʏ ᴅᴀʀᴋ.

Ashley Dyer has twisted together One deranged, disturbing, and deliciously dark tale! Would you follow a serial killer on Instagram? This book picks up shortly where the first book leaves off (from what I can gather). I did not read the first book and I still thoroughly devoured this book. However I think it would’ve been nice to have read the first book because both Ruth Lake and Greg Carver are suffering from repercussions from their previous case. There is a sadistic serial killer on the loose, preying on the men of Liverpool. Not only does he kill, but he publicly displays the body parts and calls it art. A narcissistic psychopath who thrives on attention. Attention that is easy to get in the age of social media. The serial killer really whipped the public into a frenzy creating a mob mentality where ever his artwork was displayed. Made you wonder could this really happen? Would people follow a sadistic killer on Instagram?

This was such a well done crime thriller! I loved all the investigative and forensic details. I particularly liked all the time that Lake and Carver spent with the medical examiner. The characters were all so well developed, so real. I particularly was fascinated by Carver and the auras he would see as a side effect of his head injury. Oras that allowed him to read peoples moods and emotions, that really helped him in his role as a detective. We also got a glimpse into Ruth Lake’s past and private life. Glimpses that I am sure will be expanded on in future books. I also got to spend some time in the mind of this serial killer. This book was told from multiple perspectives including that of this sadistic deranged killer. If you’re like me and like spending some time with crazy you will love how off the chains this character was! I’ve really been trying to avoid starting any new crime series, but I am certainly glad I gave this one a shot! Going to try to read the first book before the next one comes out. What a wild and crazy ride that I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of!🎧🎧🎧 Peter Noble masterfully narrated this dark tale. I thought he had the perfect English accent to draw me into this atmospheric story. When you read a book set in England there is nothing better than having it read to you by someone with an accent, it really gives you a true sense of the story.

The Mother’s Mistake by Ruth Heald @RJ_Heald @bookouture #bookreview #themothersmistakes

Happy Thursday all!

Excited to share with you today my review of this book that had me suspicious of everybody! And talk about an ending! Thank you so much Noelle for my invitation to the tour!🤩

My Thoughts

𝔘𝔫𝔰𝔢𝔱𝔱𝔩𝔦𝔫𝔤. 𝔘𝔫𝔠𝔬𝔪𝔣𝔬𝔯𝔱𝔞𝔟𝔩𝔢. 𝔘𝔫𝔭𝔲𝔱𝔡𝔬𝔴𝔫𝔞𝔟𝔩𝔢.

Ruth Heald has written a dark disturbing thriller that had me suspicious of everybody. Claire, her husband Matt, and her infant daughter Olivia move to the country and take up residency in Matt’s family‘s cottage. Claires desire for a new idyllic life in the country is quickly derailed. Not only is her cottage full of her husband’s deceased grandmother’s belongings, but she is constantly under the scrutiny of her mother-in-law. When things start getting moved around and she begins hearing things in the night Claire becomes unsettled. Top that off with Claire struggling with postpartum depression, Claire is quickly becoming unhinged. So who is out to destroy Claire’s perfect life and her mind in the process? There is also a second storyline about a abused wife that appears to be completely disconnected.

This was a slow burner with an explosive ending! Heald’s addictive writing style completely sucked me into Claire’s claustrophobic life. For the most part I was very sympathetic of Claire’s circumstances. Being a mother is hard and never is quite as glorious as you imagined it to be before you have kids. Sleep deprivation, being responsible for a tiny human, the feedings, the changings, all the crying, and to be struggling with postpartum depression on top of that would put anyone on edge. As sympathetic as I was towards Claire I was also suspicious. Just what was Claire running from in her past? And how much of what was going on was reality and how much was a figment of Claire’s imagination? She was definitely not the only one I was suspicious of I was pretty much suspicious of every single character in the story. Everyone seem to have some kind of secret to keep and everyone acted suspiciously at one time or another. And then there was the second storyline that I knew was connected, but how?

The ending to this book was wild and unexpected, but it tied everything together so perfectly. I was pretty sure I knew The Who, but I certainly had no idea of the why. A well told perfectly plotted thriller that had me completely invested.

*** many thanks to Bookouture for my copy of this book ***

About the Book

Everyone makes mistakes. But does everyone deserve to be forgiven?

She runs past the tinkling of children’s laughter that fills the park. Heart hammering, feet stinging, she reaches the riverbank, her breath catching in her throat. And then she sees…

Three years later.

Claire has everything she’s always wanted. A new-born baby. A doting husband by her side. A picturesque home in the countryside.

But behind closed doors, Claire’s life is falling apart. Her husband is barely ever home, she’s struggling to bond with her baby girl, and she swears that she is being watched in the remote, lonely cottage.

And when a threatening note is posted through her letterbox, saying she doesn’t deserve her daughter, it’s clear that someone knows about the terrible mistake that Claire made – someone won’t let her forget it. Three years ago, she would have known who to turn to. But now she no longer recognises those closest to her, or the person she’s become. Who can she trust?

An atmospheric, chilling and absolutely unputdownable psychological thriller about a mother’s worst nightmare. Fans of K.L. Slater, Shalini Boland and The Girl on the Train will love.

The Honeymoon by Rona Halsall @RonaHalsallAuth @bookouture #bookreview #thehoneymoon

TGIF all!

Today I have a review for a book that should be titled “Why You Should Not Marry Somebody After Only Knowing Them Two Months”. Talk about the honeymoon from hell! A huge thank you to Noelle for inviting me on this tour!💃🏼

My Thoughts

ᴡᴏʀsᴛ. ʜᴏɴᴇʏᴍᴏᴏɴ. ᴇᴠᴇʀ.

This was a fast-paced addictive read that left my head spinning! Girl meets boy. Girl goes out with boy. Girl falls in love with boy. Girl marries boy after only knowing him for two months. And what follows is the honeymoon from hell! Chloe and Dan Mary after a two month whirlwind romance. What transpires is Chloe on an island with a man she doesn’t even know. Her sweet loving fiancé has turned into a controlling husband, and he claims it is for her own safety. But what is true and what is a lie? Chloe knows way too much about secrets because she has one of her own.

If your child ever comes home wanting to marry somebody after only knowing them for a short time hand them this book, they will probably change their mind. Dan what a weirdo! I had no idea what his agenda was, what he was up to, if he was telling the truth or telling lies, but something about him just gave me the heebie-jeebies. Chloe I felt so bad for her. She was caring around so much guilt and that really made her so vulnerable, so right for the picking. For the majority of this book I had no idea what direction it was going in. Every time it zigged or zagged I was surprised. I and just when I thought everything was all good… Think again!

A wonderful quick absorbing story, perfect for those lazy afternoons by the pool. A wild tale full of crazy characters that will completely intrigue you!

*** Big thanks to Bookouture for my copy of this book ***

About the Book

‘I’m your husband, Chloe. We’re a partnership now and we do what’s best for us as a couple.’ 

Chloe finally feels like she’s got her life together. After a difficult childhood and losing both parents, she worked hard for the life she loves in lively Brighton, helping people as a physiotherapist. And then she meets the perfect man.

It’s a whirlwind romance, but Dan is handsome, funny, and simply the kindest man she’s ever met. When she sees him standing by the altar, tears glistening in his eyes, she knows this will be for always.

As they sunbathe on their honeymoon island, laughing over drinks, planning their future with their feet in the sand, Dan jokes that he’d like them to stay there forever.

At first, Chloe couldn’t agree more. It’s tempting to imagine truly leaving her troubled past behind. But as the honeymoon goes on, he becomes increasingly adamant. They shouldn’t leave. In fact, he won’t let her…

Is he protecting her, as he claims? Or is it something more sinister? An utterly gripping psychological thriller for fans of Gillian Flynn, Clare Mackintosh, and The Wife Between Us.

 

About the Author

Rona lives on the Isle of Man with her husband, two dogs and three guinea pigs. She has been a bookworm since she was a child and now she’s actually creating stories of her own, which still feels like a dream come true. 

She is an outdoorsy person and loves stomping up a mountain, walking the coastal paths and exploring the wonderful beaches on the Island while she’s plotting how to kill off her next victim. She also makes sure she deletes her Google history on a regular basis, because… well, you can’t be too careful when you spend your life researching new and ingenious ways for people to die.

She has three children and two step-children who are now grown up and leading varied and interesting lives, which provides plenty of ideas for new stories!

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!🌊

My Thoughts

ᴀʟʟ ᴀʙᴏᴀʀᴅ ᴛʜᴇ ᴄʀᴀᴢʏ ᴛʀᴀɪɴ!

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.👏🏻 it’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 I’d say you should blame your spouse rather than the other person, but he was in New York at the time. What’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, let’s just say my opinion of Lindsay was the same as Tessa’s from beginning to end. The story was told from both women’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 that’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!🚂

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

Before She Was Found by Heather Gudenkauf @hgudenkauf @TLCBookTours @HarlequinBooks #bookreview #beforeshewasfound

Happy Monday everybody!

Thrilled to share with you today my review for this chilling thriller! A huge thank you to Lisa for my invitation to the tour!🌻

My Thoughts

𝓒𝓻𝓮𝓮𝓹𝔂 𝓤𝓷𝓼𝓮𝓽𝓽𝓵𝓲𝓷𝓰 𝓐𝓭𝓭𝓲𝓬𝓽𝓲𝓿𝓮

Heather Gudenkauf has constructed a clever and compelling thriller with a mean girls vibe. Three 12 year old girls at a sleepover sneak out at midnight to the railyard. Cora is found stabbed and beaten, Violet is found soaked in blood, and Jordan is nowhere to be found. As the book progresses we get to know the girls better and understand the relationships between them. The girls had been working on a class project about urban legends, could that have something to do with this tragedy? Three girls with three different stories, what really happened that night? Who is lying? Who is telling the truth? And who can’t remember?

This book had such a creepy feel to it. Not only was there the scary urban legend, but it was so creepy how real this was. As a parent it is definitely scary that a school project could lead to a complete creeper talking to your child online. I remember how vulnerable and insecure I was at 12, so eager to fit in. Thank goodness my own kids were a little more savvy than me, I would’ve been a prime target I’m sure. The story is told from many perspectives and multiple forms of media. There are journal entries, text messages, private messaging on a message board, as well as doctors notes. In addition to this we get the point of view of a mother and a grandfather, I thought this was extremely impactful. There really is no limit to what we will do to protect our children, made me think what I would have done in the same situation. Cora’s journal entries were so heartbreaking and telling. I also felt the doctor’s thoughts added another layer to the story.

This was a riveting story with an unpredictable unsettling end. I had no idea who the guilty party was. Was it the bitchy popular girl? The sweet quiet girl who was easily swayed by her peers? Or was it something far more sinister? This is a thriller that I think will appeal to all thriller lovers. The characters are real and relatable and if you are a parent I think you will really understand where these parents/grandparents were coming from. The book was well paced, I was completely engaged throughout this entire book. Simply put this is an addictive thriller with a riveting plot and relatable characters.

*** many thanks to Harlequin/Park Row for my copy of this book ***

About the Book

A gripping thriller about three young girlfriends, a dark obsession and a chilling crime that shakes up a quiet Iowa town

For twelve-year-old Cora Landry and her friends Violet and Jordyn, it was supposed to be an ordinary sleepover—movies and Ouija and talking about boys. But when they decide to sneak out to go to the abandoned rail yard on the outskirts of town, little do they know that their innocent games will have dangerous consequences.

Later that night, Cora Landry is discovered on the tracks, bloody and clinging to life, her friends nowhere to be found. Soon their small rural town is thrust into a maelstrom. Who would want to hurt a young girl like Cora—and why? In an investigation that leaves no stone unturned, everyone is a suspect and no one can be trusted—not even those closest to Cora.

Before She Was Found is a timely and gripping thriller about friendship and betrayal, about the power of social pressure and the price of needing to fit in. It is about the great lengths a parent will go to protect their child and keep them safe—even if that means burying the truth, no matter the cost.

The Night Before by Wendy Walker @StMartinsPress #bookreview #thenightbefore

Happy Monday all!

Super excited to share with you today my review for this excellent book! This is a must read for all loyal thriller lovers! It’s mind blowing!🤯

My Thoughts

𝖂𝖊𝖓𝖉𝖞 𝖂𝖆𝖑𝖐𝖊𝖗 𝖉𝖎𝖉 𝖎𝖙 𝖆𝖌𝖆𝖎𝖓

An addictive and compelling read that will suck you in from the very first page and will not let you go until the mind blowing end! 🤯 Laura returns home to Connecticut after living in NYC for many years. Laura has a damaged heart. She is still getting over her last relationship and still scarred from things that happen when she was a teenager. Her sister Rosie is concerned, but happy when Laura finally goes out on a date for the first time in a long time. Happy that is until Laura doesn’t return…

The story bounces around between present and past, and Rosie and Laura’s perspectives. This is one of my favorite things, the changing of times and perspectives, and it was done brilliantly in this book. Each section was clearly labeled so there was never any confusion, additionally each character really had their own unique voice. The tension in this story was palpable, it really just seeped through the pages right into my bones. Do you ever find yourself reading a book and then realize that you have been holding your breath and your neck is all tensed up? That was this book. I was suspicious of every. Single. Character. I also had countless theories, all of them wrong. The pacing of this story was perfection. You were given clues and truths at the perfect pace. It kept me riveted and completely engaged throughout.

This is a can’t miss thriller for all lovers of the genre. It has everything that a thriller lover loves, all those twists and turns that you don’t see coming. And even the twists that I did see coming still somehow surprise me. This is probably my favorite book from Wendy Walker. She really is a wonderful storyteller and I love how she brings so much psychology and authenticity to her stories. There really is no suspending of belief, and that’s what makes it so creepy… because this could happen to you!

*** many thanks to St Martin’s Press for my copy of this book ***

About the Book

The night before…and the nightmare after.

But as Rosie begins to search for her sister, her greatest fears come to the surface. Could Laura be more of a danger than the stranger she meets, or is the night before her last night alive?
Told in dual timelines – the night before and the day after –
 The Night Before is a riveting thriller about family loyalty, obsession, and what happens when the desire for love spins out of control.
Praise for The Night Before:
“Wendy Walker proves her ingenuity with her latest hair-raising chiller. Teeming with taut writing, an abundance of jaw-dropping revelations, and Walker’s uncanny insight into the dark side of human nature,
 The Night Before is irresistible.” (Mary Kubica, best-selling author of The Good Girl
“Pulse-pounding action makes you race to the finish of this addictive thriller…. The writing sings, and the twists deliver.” (Liv Constantine, best-selling author of
 The Last Mrs. Parrish)
“A dazzling hall-of-mirrors thriller: ferociously smart, furiously paced, and – best of all – honest-to-goodness surprising. All hail Wendy Walker.” (AJ Finn, number one best-selling author of
 The Woman in the Window)
