*BLOG BLITZ* Grave Island – Andrew Smyth ★★★★

Blurb; When Philip Hennessey is thrown out of army intelligence after evidence is fabricated against him, his ex-wife’s school friend asks him to investigate the sudden death of her father, who she thinks has been murdered.

Philip soon discovers a far larger problem: a lethal trade in the manufacture and distribution of counterfeit drugs.

Using his contacts within the intelligence agencies, he follows the trail across the world, chasing counterfeit vaccines that could kill thousands.

Pitted against an international conspiracy, can Philip prevent the fake medicines getting through, and who can he really trust?

My Review; Happy Publication Day!This is the very first book I have read by Andrew and I must say I am very impressed! I must admit it took me a few chapters to get into the story but then it had me hooked… Grave Island is different from those everyday thrillers we read, unique… BUT a brilliant story I enjoyed.

You can tell Andrew has put a lot of time and effort into researching this story and I learnt some new information myself from this book about medicine and drug companies. Once I got into the story I didn’t want to put it down. Grave Island is a fast paced, easy to read mystery thriller.

I would highly recommend to you all! A well deserved four stars. I look forward to reading more by this author in the future. Will Philip solve what happened? He is one determined man.

*BLOG TOUR* The Ex-Wife – Jess Ryder ★★★★★

Blurb; You’ve got everything she wants …

Newly married Natasha has the perfect house, a loving husband and a beautiful little girl called Emily. She’d have it all if it wasn’t for Jen, her husband’s ex-wife who just won’t leave them alone …

Then Natasha returns home one day to find her husband and Emily gone without trace. Desperate to get her daughter back, Natasha will do anything even if it means accepting an offer of help from Jen. But can she trust her? And do either of them really know the man they married?

My Review; I LOVED THIS BOOK. Brilliant. I want to start by saying the cover is gorgeous (I like a good cover that catches the eye). The Ex-Wife will have you hooked just from reading the prologue, what a way to drag a reader in! I devoured this book within a day, I honestly was hooked and couldn’t put it down.

I DID NOT EXPECT THAT OUTCOME AT ALL. WOW… No spoilers here but your jaw will drop too. What a brilliant twist. A cleverly written suspense filled story with some very cunning and crafty characters within, who do you trust?

The story does highlight the bond between a mother and her child and as a mother myself I put myself into Natasha’s shoes and really felt for her character. If I was her I wouldn’t have coped at all! A brave, determined character. I was 50/50 about Nick from the start but what a nasty character he turned out to be.

A well deserved five stars, highly recommend! Gripping. I won’t forget this in a hurry. A fast paced story that you will want to finish in one sitting. Perfect.
