Keep Her Secret – Mark Edwards ★★★★★

Blurb; In this sinister tale from 4 million copy bestselling author Mark Edwards, a deadly secret turns a couple’s new romance into a nightmare. And they’re not the only ones who know the truth…

After twenty years apart, Matthew and Helena have rekindled their college romance and are away in Iceland on their first holiday together. Swept up in the romance on a mountain hike, one moment they are taking the perfect photo, the next Helena is hanging from the cliff edge…

Terrified, Matthew almost misses Helena’s sudden and shocking confession—but what he hears chills him to the bone. And when Helena reveals the full truth Matthew is horrified, not only by what she’s done, but why she did it. Does he really know her at all?

His shock turns to horror when, back in England, they discover that someone not only overheard Helena’s confession but plans to blackmail her. Now Matthew must decide whether to go to the police or help Helena keep her secret—and as events spiral out of control, how far is Matthew willing to go to protect his ‘perfect’ girlfriend?

My Review; OMG. This is going to be a bestseller for sure. This has to be one of Marks’ best books yet. Wow. Omg. I’m in shock over that twist. The ending. It’s such a cleverly written story. Face paced, thrilling, gripping. I was hooked. Did not expect the outcome at all, and it changed the whole story for me. I really enjoyed reading this one. It does have a little cliffhanger, which leaves it up to the reader to decide, but wow. Amazing. He’s done it again. I’d love to write more about the story, but I don’t want to spoil it for anyone. I urge you to go buy this. Pre-order. Find out for yourself. You will not be disappointed. A well-deserved five stars from me. Highly recommend.

*BLOG TOUR* The Librarian – Valerie Keogh ★★★★

Blurb; Since that fateful night I have always kept myself to myself. Reserved. Private. Alone.

Some people think I am too quiet. That life is passing me by. But I know there is safety in my own company. That no one can hurt me if I don’t let them get too close.

Until the day I meet him. A handsome, charming stranger. A chance for me to take a risk…finally?

Or a man who threatens everything I’ve worked so hard for?

You’ll be sorry…

And that’s when my whole life begins to fall apart….

My Review; Talk about the past coming back to haunt you, bloody hell. What a gripping, dark, and disturbing read. I was hooked! It was a very mysterious read with too many coincidences for my liking. I was beside Ava the whole way, from losing her job to her best friend to her sister and finally all the little strange things. I was shocked Ava didn’t go mental herself. She is one determined woman who knows who is behind everything. Or at least she thinks she does. A clever read. Messed up. Toxic. Brilliant ending. A well-deserved four stars from me.

Beast Quest: Kalderon the Iron Bear – Adam Blade ★★★★

Blurb; Meet the New Protectors! Four young adventurers are joining Tom and Elenna in their Quest to protect their kingdoms against the forces of Evil.

The Evil Wizard Malvel has returned and summoned four deadly new Beasts. Worse still, he has put a magical curse on Tom, leaving him unconscious. Rafe, one of the New Protectors, must team up with Elenna to do battle against a great bear-Beast and find the first healing ingredient to help save Tom.

There are FOUR thrilling adventures to collect in the latest set of the bestselling adventure series for boys and girls aged 7 and up – don’t miss out! Kalderon the Iron Bear; Garox the Coral Giant; Draka the Winged Serpent and Lukor the Mountain Demon.

My Review; Series 29. Book one. Tom is no longer in the game. He’s been poisoned. Enter four new heroes who are on a mission to save Tom. But in order to save him, they must each defeat their first beast and complete their first quest. In this story, we meet Rafe, and he has to defeat the beast Kalderon. It is a rollercoaster of a read as this beast is impossible to defeat. Just when you think he’s down, he gets back up. Can Rafe prove he’s good enough? Save his town? Save Tom? This is part 1 of 4. A gripping read. A well-deserved four stars from me.
