First Date – Sue Watson

An intense psychological thriller

5* from me… Just Brilliant!

As soon as I started hearing about this book I just HAD to have it! Exactly my kind of read, a great plot, and only a few characters to get to know.

Hannah has not too long left a long term relationship that just wasn’t going anywhere, she wants to find the one, have 3 kids and a Labrador and she wants it now, so when her boss and best friend encourages her to go on the dating app, she finally agrees…

The tale begins at the restaurant, Hannah and Alex are on their first date they have EVERYTHING in common including their dreams for the future. It couldn’t be going any better.. he is very good looking and seems to be really interested in everything she has to say – this could be it, this could be her “the one” but is it just to good to be true?

You’ve heard the saying “ I couldn’t put it down”? well I HAD to put it down, I really didn’t want the book to end so I stalled and stalled savouring it for as long as I could – I managed to spread it over 3 days treating myself to it and loving every word. It’s so full of suspense and I was constantly guessing what was going to come next and often getting it wrong! Full of twists and surprises throughout the story kept me thoroughly entertained I would most certainly recommend this book to anyone who like a Domestic Thriller.

I shall now be going through Sue Watsons back catalogue and seeing what other delights she has to offer!

The Minders – John Marrs

5* from me…

The Blurb:

In the 21st century, information is king. But computers can be hacked and files can be broken into – so a unique government initiative has been born. Five ordinary people have been selected to become Minders – the latest weapon in thwarting cyberterrorism. Transformed by a revolutionary medical procedure, the country’s most classified information has been taken offline and turned into genetic code implanted inside their heads.

Together, the five know every secret – the truth behind every government lie, conspiracy theory and cover up. In return, they’re given the chance to leave their problems behind and a blank slate to start their lives anew.

But not everyone should be trusted, especially when they each have secrets of their own they’ll do anything to protect…

My review:

WOW yet again John Marrs writes an excellent drama…I am not usually a fan of stories set in the future or of books with more than a few characters so I put off reading this book for a while… but as it was written by John Marrs I just had to read it as everything he has written so far has been given a 5* from me! I was not disappointed…

Despite my concerns John Marrs makes the many characters easy to follow using reminders of who they are at the start of their chapters very cleverly without rehashing old ground. I love the way he writes and can always follow the plot despite not always understanding the futuristic technological references! I’m so impressed by how he put this together with such detail for all of the characters. I also loved the refences to The One and The Passengers which are both excellent books.

The story had me gripped and not wanting to put it down. I would certainly recommend this and all of his other books.

My Darling – (Audiobook version)

Author: Amanda Robson

Narrated by: Laura Costello and Matt Addis

The Story:

This is an absolutely great read! Full of suspense, drama and more than a few twists! The story starts with a new couple moving in next door and then the drama unfolds… It’s a real page turner of a tale! Halfway through the story I thought I had it sussed then BAM the twists started and I was guessing and page turning until the end.

The Narration:

I love it when there are more than one narrator, this makes it much easier to follow when the story is being told from different perspectives.  

4* from me.

Bargain brilliant thriller!

The Doll House by Phoebe Morgan

A brilliant physiological thriller! Devoured over 2 days.

Following the lives of a large family the story builds to an almighty climax full of intrigue, twists and turns along the way. I actually put the book down for a bit near the end as I really didn’t want the story to be over.

The One – John Marrs

So I’ve not posted in a while… I’ve been lucky enough to have been reading some ARCs that I’m not allowed to write about until nearer their release date, so I thought i’d mention an absolutely  brilliant book that I recommend to ANYONE!

The One by John Marrs


If you could take a simple DNA test that matched you with your one true love would you take it? That’s what the characters in this book can do and if their match has registered too, meet them and fall in unconditional lover forever..  Sounds perfect hey? Why wouldn’t you!

The result are in, the matches made but not all of them are matches made in heaven……

This is a great book full of excellent characters you wont want this read to end and you’ll be recommending to everyone you know!
Absolutely  5* from me……
