Clean Break – Tammy Cohen ★★★★★

Blurb; Marriage is complicated, especially for Kate. Her husband Jack has a temper on him, and has been an absent father for years. Kate knows it’s time for a divorce. The trouble is, Jack refuses. And now that he has found out Kate has met another man, his jealous rages escalate. Can Kate rid herself of her jealous husband before it’s too late?

My Review; Now this one was pure creepy, evil, twisted and stalkerish. What happens after a break up? Not what happens in this book usually. Her ex husband spies on her, has cameras installed and audio devices. He lives in their attic without them knowing. Hurting those she loves. Pure evil. Jealous. He can’t let her go.

However, the end made up for all she had to endure. She got her revenge perfectly. You know when your getting towards the end of the book, immersed in the story and those final pages are a preview of another book? I was wounded! Gutted. I wanted more.

Brilliant, gripping and a tense read. A well deserved five stars from me. Another quick read at 95 pages. Highly recommend.

Wrong Time, Wrong Place – Simon Kernick ★★★★★

Blurb; Have you ever been in the wrong place at the wrong time? You are hiking in the Scottish highlands with three friends when you come across a girl. She is half-naked, has been badly beaten, and she can’t speak English. She is clearly running away from someone. Do you stop to help her? This book deals with these questions.

My Review; This was brilliant. It had me jumping at every sound around me, I was literally immersed in this story. For me this was more a horror. The stuff of nightmares. Petrifying. Tense. Dark. Brutal. Deathly. I loved it. A real page turner and would highly recommend. Another quick read at 100 pages. But one that doesn’t end well (like they usually do). Literally is running fot your life in this book. Imagine seeing everyone you love killed before your eyes. Awful, but gripping.

A well deserved five stars from me. Don’t think I could forget this one if I tried.

The Donor – Clare Mackintosh ★★★★

Blurb; She gave you everything. But what does she want in return?

When Lizzie’s daughter Meg is given a life-saving heart transplant, Lizzie feels hugely grateful to the nameless donor. Then she receives a letter from the donor’s mother, Karen, asking to meet, and it seems like the least she can do.

But as soon as Karen is welcomed into their lives, Lizzie feels something isn’t right. And before long, she can’t help but worry that by inviting Karen in, she might have put Meg in danger . . .

My Review; This has to be the best quick read I have read yet! Thrilling. Gripping. Tense. Edgy. Dark. Twisted. Deadly. I was hooked. I am a big fan of this authors books but due to concentration levels going awol quick reads are helping me. This is brilliantly written. Full of suspense.

Meg is given a new heart through a donor and the family soon gets in touch with the donors family and a relationship emerges which quickly turns dark and deadly fast. They were warned not to have contact and they should have listened. Heart pounding especially the ending had my pulse racing. A well deserved four stars from me. Highly recommend. Loved it. Brilliant.
