Blurb; She’s a friendly voice on the phone. But can you trust her?
The people who call End of the Line need hope. They need reassurance that life is worth living. But some are unlucky enough to get through to Laura. Laura doesn’t want them to hope. She wants them to die.
Laura hasn’t had it easy: she’s survived sickness and a difficult marriage only to find herself heading for forty, unsettled and angry. She doesn’t love talking to people worse off than she is. She craves it.
But now someone’s on to her—Ryan, whose world falls apart when his pregnant wife ends her life, hand in hand with a stranger. Who was this man, and why did they choose to die together?
The sinister truth is within Ryan’s grasp, but he has no idea of the desperate lengths Laura will go to…
Because the best thing about being a Good Samaritan is that you can get away with murder.
My Review; WOW! Where do I start? First of all I love the cover. The prologue of The Good Samaritan will have you intrigued, hooked and enthralled, which for me is the perfect beginning to any story. This is one of those stories which you will want to devour in one sitting (I tried). John Marrs has done it again and wrote a belter of a book which is thrilling and gripping, easy to read, written well and contains short chapters. However, certain parts can be a little grim and daunting.
The Good Samaritan is cleverly written, set out and told through the two main characters Ryan and Laura. Laura is not everything she seems to be, she is a very devious, clever and shady character which I hated throughout. Ryan is not much better either but with the way the story went I actually started feeling sorry for Ryan. I must also mention the ending, wow what an ending. It leaves the reader open to interpret there own ending as it ends on quite a dramatic cliffhanger (Grr). I awarded an outstanding five stars, I enjoyed every minute reading this story and John Marrs didn’t disappoint. Brilliant book. I would highly recommend you all go and pre-order this book now ready for release day on the 1st of December. I can already tell this is going to be another bestseller.
Since Kat made her decision, everything around her seems to be falling apart. Not only is she dealing with family’s secrets, lies and deceit but the salon, which is opening around the corner, threatens her livelihood.
To make matters worse her relationship with Max is on the rocks. Although her relationships with Max’s mother, her step-mother and her sister have grown stronger, are they strong enough?
Working tirelessly to save her salon and save her relationship with Max, she is battling everyday to stay focused on her future. But what will the future bring?
Losing myself is book number two in the chaos series and follows on from Holding Myself, I would recommend you read them in order. It was lovely to read another genre amid all the thriller and mystery books lately, very refreshing. It was nice to get back into a familiar town and see familiar characters again.
I must admit Kat faces A LOT throughout this story more than anyone should have to face especially being a pregnant woman. Kat is a very strong, inspirational character but she won’t give up easily.
Losing myself is an emotional (in parts) and uplifting story for readers to enjoy. It is written well, easy to read and will have you imerged until the end. Beautiful story. I have awarded another five stars for the book as I enjoyed reading this one. I would highly recommend this series to you all if you havent read it already and yet again another gorgeous cover!
I cannot wait to dive into book three Finding Myself and see what lies ahead for Kat and her family.
Could you forgive murder? What if it was something worse?
A childhood accident robs Vincent of his memories, causing him to become sensitive and anxious around others. His differences attract bullies, and he comes to rely heavily on the support of his family.
After the devastating loss of his parents, a remarkable woman teaches him to embrace life and, little by little, he realises the world is far more forgiving than he imagined. When fragments of his memory return, he begins to unravel his past.
Who was his mother? What kind of a man is his brother, Frank? And why does death surround them?
Fate is cruel. History is dark. Things are not as they seem.
Perhaps he should have stayed at home.
I want to start by saying I loved Ross’s previous book The Boy Inside and looked forward to reading this one with very high expectations. I was not disappointed, yet again another brilliant story! This story is written well, easy to read, fast paced and a very deep thought provoking read. I would highly recommend this story to you all and the previous books by this author. Ross is an upcoming author we all need to keep an eye on in the future and I cannot wait to read more upcoming books by this author. I have nothing to fault with this story, a great read! A well deserved five stars from me.
