DO Not Disturb – Claire Douglas ★★★★★

Blurb; Could your dream home be your worst nightmare?

After what happened in London, Kirsty needs a fresh start with her family.
And running a guesthouse in the Welsh mountains sounds idyllic.

But then their first guest arrives.
Selena is the last person Kirsty wants to see.
It’s seventeen years since she tore everything apart.

Why has she chosen now to walk back into Kirsty’s life?
Is Selena running from something too?
Or is there an even darker reason for her visit?

Because Kirsty knows that once you invite trouble into your home, it can be murder getting rid of it . . .

My Review; I am a huge fan of Claires books, I have read them all and yet again she did not disappoint me at all. Do Not Disturb is bloody brilliant. It has a gorgeous cover too, that is bound to catch the readers eye.

This is a fast paced story with hit after hit of shocks, secrets, lies and affairs. There was always something to keep the reader hooked. A very unexpected outcome that I would never have expected at all. This story was just action packed full of suspense and everyone was a suspect! It just goes to show you don’t know who you can trust, even family. I absolutely loved this story. Devoured it.

I awarded an outstanding five stars and would highly recommend to you all. It is a cleverly written story that contains short chapters. The characters are all likeable in their own individual way except for Dean… Didn’t really like him. I look forward to Claires next book already!

*BLOG TOUR* Faith – Chris Parker ★★★★

Blurb; WHAT IF THOUGHTS COULD KILL? The time has come for Ethan Hall, serial killer and master hypnotist, to be tried in Crown Court. And the result is far from certain. The unanswered question remains: How do you prevent a destructive master hypnotist from wreaking havoc in a Crown Court trial? For Marcus Kline, the world’s leading authority on communication and influence, and his wife Anne-Marie Wells, the devastation Ethan Hall has brought into their lives is about to reach terrifying and unimaginable heights. Memories, secrets and fear will threaten to tear them apart and destroy their very lives. Meanwhile, a new wave of murders is being recorded and shared on social media, inciting ever-more extreme behaviour. Support for the violence grows and the very fabric of society seems threatened. Is Ethan Hall in any way responsible? And, if so, how can he possibly be stopped? Marcus Kline must face his nemesis in a final battle of wills….does he have the faith to succeed?

My Review; Oooh. Not a story I would have chosen for myself but I enjoyed it very much. Very unique. Dark in parts. The story is set out brilliantly and clearly. A well written story.

It’s a court case like no other. Ethan Hall is one powerful, unique and scary character. I wouldn’t like to come accross him. It’s amazing what he can do but he uses his power in the wrong way… for evil. The end of the story is not the end in my mind. The story still continues in your mind as its technically not over… Ethan can’t be stopped! Its hard to explain unless you read it… Clever. Very clever.

I realise this is part of a Marcus Kline series but reads brilliantly as a standalone. A few tough scenes in this story but a very good read! A well deserved four stars from me.

*BLOG BLITZ* The Girl in his Eyes – Jennie Ensor ★★★★

Blurb; Her father abused her when she was a child. For years she was too afraid to speak out. But now she suspects he’s found another victim…

Laura, a young woman struggling to deal with what her father did to her a decade ago, is horrified to realise that the girl he takes swimming might be his next victim. Emma is twelve – the age Laura was when her father took away her innocence.

Intimidated by her father’s rages, Laura has never told anyone the truth about her childhood. Now she must decide whether she has the courage to expose him and face the consequences.

Can Laura overcome her fear and save Emma before the worst happens?

My Review; I’m going to start by saying this is one tough book to read! Very emotional, a hard read for me as parts hit a little too close to home. But nevertheless I read it all and parts can be a bit dark and out there in your face. But it is a good story!

Thinking about it, it’s also a powerful story with a hidden message. I felt all sorts of emotions throughout reading this story and I look up to Lauras character. This is a story that every reader can learn from or take something away from it, a story that makes the reader think! I understand it may not appeal to some readers due to the dark side of the story and abuse involved but it is written brilliantly.

A well deserved four stars from myself.
