*BLOG TOUR* Ghoster – Jason Arnopp ★★★★★

Blurb; Kate Collins has been ghosted.

She was supposed to be moving in with her new boyfriend Scott, but all she finds after relocating to Brighton is an empty apartment. Scott has vanished. His possessions have all disappeared.

Except for his mobile phone.

Kate knows she shouldn’t hack into Scott’s phone. She shouldn’t look at his Tinder, his calls, his social media. But she can’t quite help herself.

That’s when the trouble starts. Strange, whispering phone calls from numbers she doesn’t recognise. Scratch marks on the walls that she can’t explain. And the growing feeling that she’s being watched.

Kate refuses to leave the apartment – she’s not going anywhere until she’s discovered what happened to Scott. But the deeper she dives into Scott’s digital history the more Kate realises just how little she really knows about the man she loves.

My Review; You know a book is brilliant when you’re that into it, a knock on the door by the postman scares the life out of you and you jump. Yes that happened. After reading quite a creepy part.

Ghoster is brilliantly written, fast paced and I flew through it! It’s creepy, full of suspense and made me tense, it had me on edge in parts. I had to feel sorry for Kate for what happened to her the poor woman, if that was me I would have gone back home. But she’s a determined character refusing to leave.

I loved how in the story she talks to herself or her thoughts are there for us to see. Parts of the story are in a text message format which I loved too. I don’t know if it’s just me but the fact there was no electricity in the flat means she was in the dark made it even worse for me. Will she ever find out where Scott has gone? She has plenty of clues to go off…

A well deserved five stars from me. Highly recommend! Loved it. Brilliant. Really enjoyed it.

*BLOG TOUR* The Secrets He Kept – Jackie Walsh ★★★★

Blurb; You know everything about your husband. Don’t you?

He loves you. He loves your children. He’d never put his family in danger.

One of these is a lie.

It started like any other day at the hairdressers where Sally works as a stylist… until her first client innocently shows her a family photograph; a photograph that causes Sally to collapse in shock.

In one moment, Sally discovers that Tom has been hiding an explosive secret – one that could tear apart the life they’ve built together. Faced with an impossible dilemma – search for the truth, or keep her contented life? – Sally is about to discover that even those closest to us have secrets… and that sometimes the truth is the last thing we want to hear.

A completely gripping, suspenseful psychological thriller that fans of T.M. Logan, My Lovely Wife and K.L. Slater won’t be able to put down.

My Review; It has been a long time since I read a book from start to finish and that is exactly what I did with this book! Finished in a day. It’s gripping and a real page turner you won’t want to put down. Brilliantly written with short chapters. There’s no messing around in this story within the first chapter something happens that gets you hooked and wanting answers. Everything after that you’re just suspicious. Thinking. Detective mode…

Couldn’t help but feel sorry for Sally throughout. Packed full of secrets, lies and deceit. Do you really know your husband? A well deserved four stars from me. Highly recommend.

*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.
