You will be amazed and enthralled by their beauty and that’s not all! These little fairies are amazing and a delight!

My Review; Got something a little different today on the blog. Got sent this lovely childrens book by Clink Street to review with my four year old daughter who loves fairies.

First impressions was that the cover is beautiful, colourful and eye catching! It is a beautifully set out story with large print writing and easy to read! Each page has gorgeous, detailed illustrations to accompany the story. My daughter liked to count how many fairiers was in each picture.

My daughter enjoyed the story, so do I! Perfect little rymes throughout. This is the perfect book for any little girl to dive into a fairy kingdom. I’ve read this book several times to my daughter now and she still loves it. Magical. Highly recommend. A well deserved five stars. Perfect for little ladies.

The Suspect – Fiona Barton ★★★★★

Blurb; The police belonged to another world – the world they saw on the television or in the papers. Not theirs.

When two eighteen-year-old girls go missing on their gap year in Thailand, their families are thrust into the international spotlight: desperate, bereft and frantic with worry.

Journalist Kate Waters always does everything she can to be first to the story, first with the exclusive, first to discover the truth – and this time is no exception. But she can’t help but think of her own son, who she hasn’t seen in two years since he left home to go traveling. This time it’s personal.

And as the case of the missing girls unfolds, they will all find that even this far away, danger can lie closer to home than you might think . . .

My Review; I have loved the previous two books Fiona has written so this was a must read for me. Yet again she hasn’t let me down. What a corker of a book. Bloody brilliant. Blew me away. Loved every second of this book, I lost myself into this story.

The Suspect is told through the girls holiday, the reporter and the detective. The book is packed with jaw dropping drama, drugs, lies, love, death and secrets. A real page turner you will not want to put down.

A case that just goes deeper and deeper. Characters with two sides to them. I absolutely loved it. I did feel sorry for the girls mothers and how the girls holiday, lives and freedom turned horribly wrong. A fast paced investigation into two missing girls. The ending will have you shocked too. It’s amazing what parents will do for their children.

A well deserved five stars from me. Highly recommend. A must buy. A must read. This story will not disappoint you at all, but will probably make you put your life on hold till you’ve finished it. Very impressed. Already looking forward to the next book!

Silent Scream – Angela Marsons ★★★★★

Blurb; Five figures gather round a shallow grave. They had all taken turns to dig. An adult sized hole would have taken longer. An innocent life had been taken but the pact had been made. Their secrets would be buried, bound in blood …

Years later, a headmistress is found brutally strangled, the first in a spate of gruesome murders which shock the Black Country.

But when human remains are discovered at a former children’s home, disturbing secrets are also unearthed. D.I. Kim Stone fast realises she’s on the hunt for a twisted individual whose killing spree spans decades.

As the body count rises, Kim needs to stop the murderer before they strike again. But to catch the killer, can Kim confront the demons of her own past before it’s too late?

My Review; I recently read this book as part of a buddy read alongside some fellow bloggers. This is a series I have been meaning to read for ages, so thrilled I finally got around to reading it.

They say Angela is the queen of crime? I can certainly see why after reading just the first book in the series. It was bloody brilliant, what a way to kick off the series. Very impressed. I was hooked and absolutely loved it.

Kim Stone. What a unique and interesting character. I loved her sarcasm and attitude. She is a very determined character who won’t let anything or anyone stop her from doing what she wants, she is also a very smart/clever lady. However, a lady with a dark, secret past which she holds close to heart.

Silent Scream has twist, after twist after twist! It constantly has you guessing, on the edge of your seat and shocked throughout. A real page turner. I did not expect the outcome at all! I already cannot wait to see what lies ahead for us in the rest of this series. I loved how even though this is book one in the series the team talk about the past together, they are a great team. Highky recommend book one of the DI Kim Stone series. A well deserved five stars from myself.

As Silent Scream has been a buddy read we will be reading a book each month from this series. Below are the blogs of the others who have taken part in the buddy read too, so check out what they thought;
