*BLOG TOUR* Her Pretty Bones – Carla Kovach ★★★★

Blurb; She’s just the girl he’s looking for…

A young woman falls from a van speeding down a quiet road. Battered and bruised, she turns her head to the person who comes to her aid. ‘Help her’, she whispers before her eyes close.

Days later, the body of another young girl is found in a shallow grave just a few miles away. The similarities between the two girls are startling – same age, same frail body, same shocking red hair.

As the town fears there’s a serial killer living amongst them, Detective Gina Harte must put aside her own struggles at home, and catch the killer before he finds another perfect girl.

My Review; Happy Publication Day! Her Pretty Bones is book three in the Detective Gina Harte series, a series I am absolutely loving after reading all the books. It’s a series best read in order as this story does contain references to the books before it.

The prologue is intriguing and drags the reader straight in… Yet again Gina finds herself stuck in a case that is targeting young women and a personal family feud begins to arise again between her and her daughter as the case comes first.

Did Gina go back to work too fast? Has she really recovered from her last case already? She seems to be struggling in this story… I found like usual she got herself too involved and emotionally attached to the case and victims putting herself at harm… Again. But she is a bloody good detective. I like her character. Strong, determined and focused. She has a great team alongside her who support her.

Her Pretty Bones is a real mystery/investigation into what has happened with these young ladies. You can tell Carla has put a lot of time and research into this story. The story does highlight several issues, homelessness, carer’s work and Huntingtons disease which I learnt a lot about from this book, so thank you.

I awarded a well deserved four stars and I’m hoping there may be a fourth book to come along shortly. I would love to see what Gina and her team have to face next. Highly recommend. Enjoyed reading this one. Fab.

*BLOG TOUR* For The Missing – Lina Bengtsdotter ★★★★

Blurb; She must find Annabelle. Before it’s too late.

THE MISSING:
Nora’s daughter Annabelle has disappeared, last seen on her way home from a party.

THE LOST:

Gullspång’s inexperienced police are wilting under the national media spotlight – and its residents desperate for answers.

THE CLOCK IS TICKING . . .
Stockholm DI Charlie Lager must return home to find Annabelle, and then get out of town as soon as she can. Before everyone discovers the truth about her . . .

My Review; Now this is a real mystery you can sink your teeth into…

Oh wow… This is one of those stories you finish and then need to think about. I found it ended suddenly and was trying to turn the page even though it was the end! Ooops. A story that has such an unexpected outcome I was left like… WHATTT!!! I really wanted more.

Charlie and Anders are sent to help solve the case/mystery of missing Annabelle but they are also having to deal with their own personal problems at the same time which can become tricky.

The story flicks from the present day to the day of Annabelles disappearance. It also includes a lot of flashbacks for Charlies character as she has returned to her hometown after so long… Makes you question her character even if she is a police officer does she have a hidden past? Alcohol problem? She’s a bit of a dark, secretive character at times. Infact it seems every character in this story has secrets and whole other side to them.

Brilliantly written, it will keep you guessing and on the edge of your seat until the end. Fast paced. Thrilling. Can easily be devoured. Highly recommend. A well deserved four stars from me.

*BLOG TOUR* Only A Mother – Elisabeth Carpenter ★★★★★

Blurb; ONLY A MOTHER . . .

Erica Wright hasn’t needed to scrub ‘MURDERER’ off her house in over a year. Life is almost quiet again. Then her son, Craig, is released from prison, and she knows the quiet is going to be broken.

COULD BELIEVE HIM

Erica has always believed Craig was innocent – despite the lies she told for him years ago – but when he arrives home, she notices the changes in him. She doesn’t recognise her son anymore.

COULD BURY THE TRUTH

So, when another girl goes missing, she starts to question everything. But how can a mother turn her back on her son? And, if she won’t, then how far will she go to protect him?

COULD FORGIVE WHAT HE HAS DONE

My Review; Oh My Days. This was a rollercoaster of a read. Absolutely loved it. Brilliant. Highly recommend. A well deserved five stars from me.

Brilliantly written, contains short chapters and fast paced. This was my last read for 2018 and it blew me away. I was well and truelly glued to this book. I think it would make a brilliant film. Just when you think you know all the characters and personalities… BOOM. NO. Flip that upside down… Very impressed.

I absolutely loved Ericas character. All her faith and trust she put into her son being not guilty. Everything she went through and faced for her son and to keep their home. I admire her. However, there are some nasty and bretraying characters in this book! Luke is a lovely character going above and beyond in his job and has a love for his family, loved his character too.

A must read from me. An author to keep your eye out for. I cannot wait to read more by this author in the future. Absolutely lost myself in this book.
