The Kind Worth Killing – Peter Swanson ✶✶✶✶

the kind worth killing

When Ted Severson’s flight becomes delayed he meets Lilly the mysterious stranger in an airport bar. After too many martinis he confesses his darkest secrets to Lilly about his wife’s infidelity and how he wishes she was dead. But what he does not expect is Lilly offering to help him carry out just that task… Do you dare to find out what happens? You will not be disappointed.

I had heard A LOT about this story so decided to dive in and see what all the hype was about. The Kind Worth Killing is easy to read and a very fast paced story that you will all enjoy. I awarded this book four stars as don’t get me wrong it is a brilliantly clever written story with plenty of twists and turns for the reader to endure. However, I personally did not understand what all the hype was about… I have to admit that the final chapter in this book has to be the best chapter ever where everything is revealed, but it does end on a bit of a cliffhanger (GRR,), which made me want MORE (and I did not expect the ending outcome). This is the perfect story for readers who enjoy a great mystery, thriller, suspense, crime, contemporary, bestseller and would make the perfect story to discuss if you are part of a book club. This is a long story (415 pages) but if you find yourself enjoying it you will find yourself racing through it, worth the time reading this story.
Enjoy, I did.

I awarded five stars to this book as I was hooked throughout and did not work out the plot until all was revealed (yes I was shocked). Thanks to Netgalley I got the chance to read this amazing story. The Missing will be released 21/04/2016 and I would highly recommend you buy it, this is the perfect story for readers who enjoy a great thriller, mystery and would make the ideal story to discuss if you are part of a book club. The Missing is easy to read, well written, fast paced and a page turner for sure which I highly enjoyed. C.L. Taylor has also written two other stories The Lie and The Accident, they are all stand alones and brilliant! I have read the Lie and also awarded five stars to that and have the Accident waiting for me on my kindle.

Amazing story. Enjoy.

To five year old Jack Room is all he has ever known! It is where he was born and grew up, where he learns, reads, eats, sleeps and play with his mother. Room is home to Jack, but to his mother it is prison where Old Nick has held her captive for seven years. Jacks mother has had enough and devises a plan involving Jack to escape, but she does not expect it to work. This story is told entirely in the language of five year old Jack and highlights the limitless bond between a parent and child. This is their story of the journey from one world to another new, bigger world! With a heartwarming ending.

I awarded Room five stars as this has to be the best book I have read so far this year! I really did enjoy reading this story and cannot wait to watch the film! I would highly recommend you read this book if you haven’t already! It does start off slow but then you will be hooked, believe me. Room is an easy to read, fast paced outstanding thriller for all readers to enjoy. This story does not have chapters as it is split into four different parts. Some readers may not enjoy Room as it is written from the view of Jack, but do not let that put you off or you will miss out on this heartbreaking beautiful story. Room is the perfect story for readers who enjoy bestsellers, contemporary, suspense and thrillers, it would also make the perfect read to discuss if you are part of a book club. It is no wonder Room had been nominated for the 2010 booker prize, it really is an interesting read. Enjoy!
