This was quite an interesting case. After reading it I'm not sure I can say whether he did it or not. The author builds a compelling case. The story tells of his life and the life of the victim. The ending was interesting and I'm glad it reverted back to the victim.

SECRETS OF THE DEAD. | MURRAY. BAILEY
post image
Pickpick

This is book 2 in the series but I followed enough of the basic story. It was an interesting story that jumped back to the past which I really enjoyed. The plot was good but just didn't thrill me as much as I'd hoped. Still a good read though.
Pick but only just. #librarything

The Porpoise | Mark Haddon

This was quite a strange story and really took some following. I'm not totally sure I fully understood all what was happening. It jumps around an awful lot which left me very confused at times. The basic story with Angelica is quite dark and features some child abuse so a warning to those who may be triggered by that. I enjoyed Marina's story most of all but the rest was a little too rushed for me.

YOUR DEEPEST FEAR. | DAVID. JACKSON

Pickpick

Wow this was very dark and pretty graphic in places. The background story of Cody in particular. The plot is interesting and the story develops well. The ending was very clever leaving me wanting more. I'm becoming a bit of a fan of David Jackson's books. This is the second I've read and enjoyed. I found the moral questions in this really interesting and thought provoking.

What an interesting idea for this. We all know what happened to Cinderella but this is about her sisters. I loved the concept and it works really well. The plot was interesting and kept me turning the page and I loved the ending. It was well written and delved into what life would have been like for them. A wonderful story with an important message.

This was a quick read and really kept my attention. The story was clever and had some brilliant twists. I figured some out but not all. The story builds to a big finish that was well written and interesting. I liked the ending it was an interesting take and fitted with the story. All the characters were interesting and brought more depth to the story. A great thriller that keeps you guessing.

This was such a funny and very real book. It's so easy to relate to much of what happens to Frankie. So many parents feel the way she does, I know I certainly have. The story is written in a diary format which I really liked. The story was strong and so very real. It also made me laugh many times. A brilliant, funny light read. The scene with the fountain was hilarious and loved the ending. It finished the story so perfectly too.

The Evidence Against You | Gillian McAllister

Having read another book by the author I was looking forward to this and I wasnt disappointed. It's a slow burn story but it does build up well, the truth took me by surprise but it was good, the ending was bittersweet and yet made real sense. I enjoyed the mystery and trying to figure out the crime. A great read with just enough drama to keep me reading. 4*

This was a really good first book in the series. The story was interesting and developed well. It picked up towards the end and had quite a few dramatic moments. The ending was good and I'm curious to know what will happen next. Regan is an interesting lead, shes not perfect in the slightest which makes her much more likeable. She has her flaws and issues but she grows through the story. I think I loved Gray the most though.

I had high hopes for this but it didn't quite live up to it. It was an interesting story but just didn't draw me in that much. I enjoyed the letters Bramber sent him. It helped develop her character and I really enjoyed the translated fairy tales. The ending was good and finished the story nicely. An interesting read but not enough for me. I'm sure others will love it though.

This was a lovely story. A light read and very predictable but it was still a good read. The ending was as expected but very sweet. Perfect on a summer's day. I think Lara is a good lead and I really loved Charlie and of course Rob but the rest of the characters just didn't catch my attention enough.

I loved this book so much. I think it might be my fave read of the year so far. It was so funny and heart warming and brilliant. I read this so quickly because I just couldn't put it down. I love the notes between Tiffy and Leon they're so cute. There is so much more to this story as well what with Leon's brother and The Justin drama. The plot is steady but has some great dramatic moments. I loved the ending so much.

This is book One in the series and it's a great beginning to the series. I really enjoyed the story and the twists and turns of the plot. The ending was good and finished the story well. It's quite a dark story but I liked that and wasnt sure who the killer was until close to the end. I really liked Monica until the bit with her daughter coming along that frustrated me though.

This is the second in the series following Hulda. This was a really good story once I got into it. It took some following at the beginning with various things happening especially the babysitting scene but it all comes together in the end. The plot was good and the murder interesting. I did figure it out before the end except one of the twists that was very clever.
I look forward to the next book.

This was a good story but I must admit it wasnt as funny or good as I'd hoped. The story flowed well and the ending was really good but it just didn't pull me in enough. There were some good moments and some very sad ones that made up for other parts of the story. I liked Lizzie a lot but she was the only one I truly liked in the story. A good read but not a favourite for me.

Not one of the better true crime books. Focussed too heavily on details I wasnt interested in like the locations rather than the murders themselves. The list of serial killers in England was interesting though.

I wasnt sure what I was expecting in this story but it wasnt this. Not that I'm saying it was bad, in fact it was really good, the story had so many layers that i just wasnt expecting. It's a slow burning story but it pulls you in and doesn't let go until the very last page. Theres much drama and some very clever twists that really add to the story. The ending was perfect and yet sad at the same time.

This was an interesting read with a really clever twist that I didn't see coming at all. The book skips from present day to the past and back again. It did take a bit of following to start with. Especially the sections hearing just from Ian and Shelley. The story was interesting and built steadily. It deals with the difficult subject of grief and just how completely it can take hold of us. The ending was well done and totally relatable

This was an interesting thriller with different parts to the story. The main story is told by Malin, Hanne and Jake who has Hanne's diary. The plot is clever and well developed. The ending was so good if quite bittersweet. It deals with some serious issues like Hanne's developing dementia and was interesting to read her diary as it progressed. Jake is another interesting character but I instantly liked him. He added more depth.

This is told from two voices, Ally and her mother each tell their story. I like this idea as it gives you both perspectives. This was a really interesting read with some very clever twists.

Theres so much to this story that it kept me turning the pages especially towards the end.

Book 8 in the series set in the beautiful Walsingham. Another interesting mystery for the gang and another big secret is finally revealed. This wasnt my favourite of the series but it was still a really good read. Of course living in Norfolk myself means that I love reading about areas I know. Cathbad is still my favourite character in these but I do have a soft spot for Nelson.

Oh this book is beautiful. Its heartbreaking and so well written. It draws you in and refuses to let you go long past the last page is read. This story is told from two timelines that eventually link the story together. To keep from spoilers I wont say much but I think it was well done. The ending is beautiful yet sad. It deals with the very real issue of organ donation and the lack of awareness.

This was quite a read. It was very dark and yet haunting and so well written. The story was interesting and I hadn't predicted who was behind the abduction. I liked the way the story was told from two different perspectives. The ending was so heartbreaking and yet at the same time there was a glimmer of hope.
