What I’m Reading:
The Skeleton Friend by R.C. Johansen
I received this book from the author. The Skeleton Friend is R.C.’s first novel. Carly, the main character, literally stumbles over the body of a headless teenager and is plunged into the world of forensic investigation and police procedure. If you love to know everything about forensics and autopsies, this is a recommended read.
What I recently finished:
In the Mind of Revenge by Liv Hadden
Review to come in a few days. This is the first novel of author Liv Hadden and I have to tell you, it’s quite original in this way that you never get to know the main character’s given name ánd gender. Intruiged yet? Although the story starts off with a gruesome act, the book is not so dark as you might think, is has even small bouts of humour all over the story. The story has also many unique, interesting characters. All in all, this turned out to be a pleasant surprise.
What I’ll probably read soon:
Kitty’s Countryside Dream by Christie Barlow
After all of the above, can you believe that I’m in need of something a little lighter to read? I think I’ll find the perfect read in this book. I already love the cover.
New home. New life. New beginning. Love affairs can blossom in the most unlikely places . . .
When Kitty inherits Bluebell Lodge from her grandmother, a farm in the beautiful Staffordshire countryside, it’s time for fresh air and a fresh start. Up to her elbows in chickens and ponies, Kitty soon realises there’s an awful lot to learn about farming. Still, at least the locals seem friendly, not least her handsome neighbour Tom…
But just as Kitty is beginning to find her feet, and the possibility of love, the discovery of a long-hidden diary, by a mysterious character called Violet changes everything. Who is Violet and what is her message for Kitty? As Kitty fills in the lost pieces of her family jigsaw and discovers some shocking revelations, will her countryside dream and blossoming relationship fall to pieces? When it comes to life in the country, nothing is ever quite as it seems …
A heart warming, moving and funny tale, perfect for fans of Trisha Ashley and Cathy Bramley.
The Three Deaths of Magdalene by Catherine Hayton
Or she didn’t.
Paul Worthington just confessed to her murder.
Forty years ago Magdalene Lynton died in a dirty shed. He smothered her life along with her cries for help and tossed her defiled corpse into a river when he was done.
Or he didn’t.
As Detective Ngaire Blakes investigates the death, she discovers clues that won’t piece together with either version. Gaps, inconsistencies, lies. And forty years have eroded more than memories.
Is it possible to uncover the third death of Magdalene Lynton when time has eaten away at the evidence? And will the person responsible let Ngaire live long enough to try?
