My Review; Happy Publication Day! The Stranger Within is book four in the brilliant DI Hamilton series which I am absolutely loving! A fab series you must all add to your to read pile. I would recommend this series is best read in order.

Wow weeee. Where to beginning? What another brilliant story written by Tara. I flew through this story! This could possibly be the best story yet. Gripping, thrilling and a real page turner. A book you will want to read in one sitting. I think I may just have fallen inlove with DI Hamilton a little.

This time the case gets dark and personal for the team, could this be their worst case yet when one of their own is involved? When a killer wants revenge? Bloody brilliant. Cleverly written! A well deserved five stars from me… I now eagerly await book five… Hopefully 😉 Highly recommend!

*BLOG TOUR* Deadly Friendship – Tara Lyons ★★★★★

Who can you really trust?

Detective Inspector Denis Hamilton is dragged into a gruesome murder investigation, while on annual leave at Lake Windermere. A handwritten note, with a woman’s name, is found inside the corpse.

When a direct link to London is identified, Hamilton must race against the clock to make the connection before the body count rises.

Meanwhile, four friends with strained relationships, are reunited. What past event do they want to keep buried and is there something linking them to the murders?

Then, when a person from Hamilton’s past returns, he must ask himself: how well do we really know our friends?

My Review: 
Secrets always lead to trouble…
Deadly Friendship is book three in the DI Hamilton series and I am loving this series. This story had me intrigued and hooked just from the prologue. It is safe to say that I devoured this book! I enjoyed every minute of this book and it was lovely to be back with DI Hamilton and his team. Deadly Friendship does read well as a standalone but if you’re like me you’ll probably want to read the series in order anyway. This story is easy to read, written brilliantly and fast paced. I couldn’t put it down. It held my attention till the very last page. I did not figure out the plot at all and did not expect the outcome. WOW. I would highly recommend this story to you all if you haven’t read it already. This series is one to keep your eye on. Brilliant. A well deserved five stars from me, I can’t wait to see what lies ahead for Hamilton and his team in this series.

My Review:
WOW! I seriously loved and devoured this book within a day! No Safe Home is the second story of the DI Hamilton series but reads well as a stand alone too! This is the first story I have read by Tara Lyons and I was blown away! I have her other story ready to read! I would suggest reading the series in order though which I personally never do these days DO’H! But a well deserved five stars, I was hooked from the first page and stayed up late into the morning reading it. This is a page turner that I would highly recommend to you all, you will not be able to put it down!

No Safe Home is easy to read, well written and contains short chapters. I fell in love with DI Hamilton from the start, what a hero! I promise you this story will keep you on the edge of your seat. I WANT MORE!! I think I’m turning into a crime addict. Brilliant. Thrilling. Addicted. Enjoy.
