*BLOG TOUR* Nothing Important Happened Today – Will Carver ★★★★★

Blurb; When strangers take part in a series of group suicides, everything suggests that a cult is to blame. How do you stop a cult when nobody knows they are a member?

Nine suicides
One Cult
No leader

Nine people arrive one night on Chelsea Bridge. They’ve never met. But at the same time, they run, and leap to their deaths. Each of them received a letter in the post that morning, a pre-written suicide note, and a page containing only four words: Nothing important happened today.

That is how they knew they had been chosen to become a part of the People Of Choice: A mysterious suicide cult whose members have no knowledge of one another.

Thirty-two people on that train witness the event. Two of them will be next. By the morning, People Of Choice are appearing around the globe; it becomes a movement. A social media page that has lain dormant for four years suddenly has thousands of followers. The police are under pressure to find a link between the cult members, to locate a leader that does not seem to exist.

How do you stop a cult when nobody knows they are a member?

My Review; Oh. You want me to try and review this now huh? I will give it a go… This book is unique, original, different and bloody brilliant. It is a story you shouldn’t be enjoying but you do. Messes with your head, like am I okay? Is the author okay after writing this? Are we all okay?

It is a page turner of a read, short chapters, fast paced and brilliantly written. I love how it engages the reader with how these people are people you see everyday and dont give a thought about… It’s a story that makes you think and stands out from all those everyday thrillers and mysterys. Not read anything similar to this before.

A well deserved five stars from me. Highly recommend. A must read. A must buy. This deserves a place in my top twenty reads of 2019. Forget this story? Impossible.

*BLOG TOUR* Violet – SJI Holliday ★★★★

Blurb; When two strangers end up sharing a cabin on the Trans-Siberian Express, an intense friendship develops, one that can only have one ending … a nerve-shattering psychological thriller from bestselling author SJI Holliday

Carrie’s best friend has an accident and can no longer make the round-the-world trip they’d planned together, so Carrie decides to go it alone.

Violet is also travelling alone, after splitting up with her boyfriend in Thailand. She is also desperate for a ticket on the Trans-Siberian Express, but there is nothing available.

When the two women meet in a Beijing Hotel, Carrie makes the impulsive decision to invite Violet to take her best friend’s place.

Thrown together in a strange country, and the cramped cabin of the train, the women soon form a bond. But as the journey continues, through Mongolia and into Russia, things start to unravel – because one of these women is not who she claims to be…

My Review; How do I even begin to review this?! I love this cover, very eye catching. I loved the story! Oh my. I loved it all…

Violet is brilliantly written, gripping, tense, fast paced and a page turner of a read which I devoured. It’s over before you know it. The story focuses on Violet travelling and ends up travelling alongside Carrie but then things start to turn dark and deadly… Something is not right… Dun dun dun… I hated Violets character from the start for many different reasons. Evil. Twisted. Sick. Would make a brilliant film or tv series.

I don’t want to give anything away but you really need to read this book. Not read anything similar to this before. I didn’t think SJI Holliday could beat The Lingering but this is very good! A well deserved four stars from me. Highly recommend.

Blurb; Drugs, smuggling, big money and political intrigue in Iceland rally with love, passion, murder and betrayal until the winner takes all … in the masterful, explosive conclusion to the award-winning Reykjavík Noir trilogy…

The prison doors slam shut behind Agla, when her sentence ends, but her lover Sonja is not there to meet her.

As a group of foreign businessmen tries to draw Agla into an ingenious fraud that stretches from Iceland around the world, Agla and her former nemesis, María find the stakes being raised at a terrifying speed.
Ruthless drug baron Ingimar will stop at nothing to protect his empire, but he has no idea about the powder keg he is sitting on in his own home.
At the same time, a deadly threat to Sonya and her family brings her from London back to Iceland, where she needs to settle scores with longstanding adversaries if she wants to stay alive.

With a shocking crescendo, the lives of these characters collide, as drugs, smuggling, big money and political intrigue rally with love, passion, murder and betrayal until the winner takes all … in the masterful, explosive conclusion to the award-winning Reykjavík Noir trilogy.

My Review; Cage is book three in the Reykjavik Noir trilogy, best read in order. Beautifully translated by Quentin Bates. A brilliant end to the trilogy.

Tense, edgy and a real page turner. Alga is getting out of prison but will she stay away and out of trouble? The chapters are short and flick to each characters story which all relate, making it an easy to read story. It’s action packed! Always something to keep you turning those pages and on edge.

A well deserved four stars. Highly recommend this trilogy. I have read books two and three so need to go back to book one! Brilliant. Different. Unique writing skills.
