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 TOUR* The Tattoo Thief – Alison Belsham ★★★★★

Blurb; A policeman on his first murder case
A tattoo artist with a deadly secret
And a twisted serial killer sharpening his blades to kill again…

When Brighton tattoo artist Marni Mullins discovers a flayed body, newly-promoted DI Francis Sullivan needs her help. There’s a serial killer at large, slicing tattoos from his victims’ bodies while they’re still alive. Marni knows the tattooing world like the back of her hand, but has her own reasons to distrust the police. So when she identifies the killer’s next target, will she tell Sullivan or go after the Tattoo Thief alone.

My Review; Oooh this book was right up my street as a tattoo fan myself with several tattoos and a killer (the tattoo thief) even better haha! This story was bloody brilliant! The story is told through each of the different characters. Written brilliantly…

I must say though that Marni should have been the bloody detective with how much help and researching she did for the police… I felt the police didn’t have a clue without Marni… I suppose that’s all part of the story. Durr.

I absolutely loved it and thrilled I got the chance to read it! I love how the tattoo ‘community’ all kind of stuck together many people still in this era see us as thugs and criminals (we’re not) and it was lovely to see the author not making us out to be the bad guys for once!

I loved the whole story behind the tattoo thief too… Clever. However, I don’t want any of my tattoos being taken thanks! Pretty grim in parts. A well deserved five stars. Highly recommend! I devoured it. Enjoy.
