The One – John Marrs ★★★★★

How far would you go to find THE ONE?

One simple mouth swab is all it takes. A quick DNA test to find your perfect partner – the one you’re genetically made for.

A decade after scientists discover everyone has a gene they share with just one other person, millions have taken the test, desperate to find true love. Now, five more people meet their Match. But even soul mates have secrets. And some are more shocking – and deadlier – than others…

My Review:
Why didn’t I read this sooner?
I am totally regretting not bumping this up in my to be read pile after hearing so much about it! The One is brilliant, I haven’t read anything similar to this book. It is a one of a kind book! It is one of those books you try to put down to go to sleep but you just can’t, it just keeps getting better and better with more twists and turns to keep you hooked.

I loved how the stories were all told through each individual character and had their own twists within. The One contains short chapters, is easy to read and fast paced! It did make me question if I would take the test though and I’m very uncertain! A well deserved five stars from me, I would highly recommend this book to you all if you haven’t read it already. You will not be disappointed! John Marrs is an author to keep your eye on. Expectations are set high now for his next book I will be picking up to read. A thrilling read which will keep you up all night!

Mechanic has not killed for eight months and the trail has gone cold, then Lucas receives a terrifying letter. In a desperate bid to reignite the case, he tries to convince his boss to mount an operation in Baton Rouge where the letter was posted.

Meanwhile, a bizarre set of murders are taking place in Vegas and Detective Rebecca Moran is put on the case. She will stop at nothing to make a name for herself.

Is there a link between the murders and Mechanic?

Can Lucas apprehend the killer this time or will Mechanic remain one step ahead?

My Review:
WOW! In Your Name is book number two in the Mechanic Trilogy and I would highly suggest you read them in order. This is a brilliant follow on from the first book Those That Remain. I loved it! I am actually loving this series. Brilliant stories.

Mechanic has to be the most twisted, clever and evil killer I have ever read about! Seriously… I loved the setting, all the old familiar characters and even the new characters and the theme within the book. Very cleverly written, easy to read, contains to short chapters and bloody brilliant! Yet again I devoured this book in a day, another well deserved five stars. I cannot wait to see what the final book will be like, but if its anything like the previous two I already know I will love it! I would highly recommend this series to you all. But please read in order as the second book does refer back to the first in parts and I don’t want you to ruin it for yourself. Go buy this series now! You will not forget this series in a hurry… Brilliant.

The Child – Fiona Barton ★★★★★

When a paragraph in an evening newspaper reveals a decades-old tragedy, most readers barely give it a glance. But for three strangers it’s impossible to ignore.
For one woman, it’s a reminder of the worst thing that ever happened to her.
For another, it reveals the dangerous possibility that her darkest secret is about to be discovered.
And for the third, a journalist, it’s the first clue in a hunt to uncover the truth.
The Child’s story will be told.

My Review:
What a bloody brilliant book, a must buy for me.
After devouring Fiona’s previous book The Widow this was a must and I was not disappointed. I loved it. Brilliant story, brilliantly written. I also love the cover! The Child contains short chapters which are all dated I love how the story was out and told through the different characters. I was actually hooked, devoured this story in two days and now waiting for her next book already. This has a superb twist towards the end which I did not expect at all, my mouth dropped open. I would highly recommend this one to you all if you haven’t got round to it yet. A well deserved five stars. Fiona Barton is an author to keep your eye on. I won’t forget this story in a rush! Brilliant. Impressed.
