Christie’s Review

5 STARS

The Memories We Bury is the very definition of a nailbiter for me. I was captivated by the story and the characters, rapidly flipping through the pages until I knew what the truth really was. 

Lizzie hasn’t always had a happy life, but she believes her happily ever after is within reach after a whirlwind romance and marriage to Markus. He showers her with attention which she absorbs readily as she never had much of that growing up. Now, they have moved to a new home in Edinburgh, and it’s not long before her life changes when she discovers she is pregnant. Markus becomes distant, and she is very grateful to her new older neighbor, Morag. She likes having a “mother figure” since she never really had that kind of relationship with her own critical mother. She becomes reliant on Morag, and even more so when her sweet baby boy is born. The birth of her son changes her relationship with both Morag and Markus in ways she never imagined. 

The unique way the story is laid out is brilliant, told both in Lizzie and Morag’s voices. It really added to the intrigue of the book. There were some pretty creepy moments that made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. 

The characters were so complex and complicated. With every chapter, the author revealed another layer to their personality I wasn’t expecting. There were some real surprises and twists I didn’t see coming when I first started the book. 

If you are looking for a book with thrills and suspense, you can’t go wrong with this one!!! I highly recommend reading!!!!

All-Time Favorite Read

Top Read of 2019

Top Read in Psychological Suspense

 

Holy WOW!!!! The Wives by Tarryn Fisher is a top read for me! If you are looking for a book that will absolutely blow your mind, this book is for you!!

It had it all…unbelievably good writing, complex characters, a plot that moves at breakneck speed, and twists to make your head turn. Thursday is Seth’s second wife. He has three others. She agreed to this unconventional marriage, but is beginning to question her marriage and herself. When she takes the first step to discovering who the two women really are, she has no clue the dark rabbit hole she is going down.

The story is narrated by Thursday, and I have to be honest, I’m not sure how I felt about her. She is very complicated and complex. She is most definitely flawed; however, I couldn’t help rooting for her. She somehow lost her identity in her relationship to Seth, and she questions everything, even her very sanity. Honestly, I was right there with her, wondering what secret was going to be revealed next. 

The other characters were just as complex. Each of them had a darkness to them. I wasn’t quite sure who the true villain was, and I’m still not quite sure. 

This book is brilliant, and Tarryn Fisher is a genius!!!! However, these rare books are so hard to write reviews for because you don’t want to ruin anything yet you want others to know how phenomenal it is! So, I hope I have been able to adequately express how fantastic and out-of-the-box this book truly is! You may be like me when you finish the last page…going back and re-reading things to discover things you might have missed! When I have to do that, the book and the writer has far surpassed my expectations! And, Tarryn Fisher definitely did that!!!!!

The Wife’s Revenge by Deirdre Palmer Publication Day Push with Review

The Wifes Revenge

 

The Wife’s Revenge

by Deirdre Palmer

About the Book

Sometimes the lie is safer than the truth.

Fran made the biggest mistake of her life when she had an affair with Ben. Both families live in the village of Oakheart; their children are friends. Fran’s guilt shadows her days. But it’s no more than she deserves, or is it? At least she’s managed to protect her husband, Hector, from the harsh truth.

But for how long?

Tessa has left her troubles in the past and now has the perfect life. Ben might have his faults, but his life has not been easy. They need each other, and Tessa will do whatever it takes to eliminate any threats to her marriage.

Threats from women like Fran.

A cliff overlooks a disused chalk-pit. The locals call it High Heaven. It’s a place of secrets. And it’s where Oakheart newcomer Maria died. When Fran discovers a link between Maria and Ben, disturbing questions arise to which she has no way of knowing the answers. 

Faced with an ultimatum from Tessa, time is running out for Fran. She’s scared, every minute of every day.

But where does the real danger lie?




Christie’s Review

4 STARS

The Wife’s Revenge by Deirdre Palmer is a tightly-woven psychological suspense and mystery! It will definitely keep you turning the pages rapidly until you come to the end and what an ending it is!!!!

 The novel is written from two POVs….Fran and Tessa. Fran made a huge mistake having a brief affair with Ben. At least she does carry regret and guilt. So far, she has managed to keep the ugly truth from her husband, Hector, and their children. 

Tessa and Ben have a complicated marriage, but she likes her life and wants nothing or no one to destroy the life she has created. Palmer lets her readers know from the beginning what sort of person Tessa is and exactly what she will do to keep Ben. However, the mystery is the death of a woman, Maria and her connection to Ben. How exactly did she die? Who was responsible? Palmer definitely kept me guessing. I would think I had it all figured out, but then I was proven wrong. 

Not only was the mystery and suspense superb, but Palmer’s writing in general is phenomenal. It isn’t every day you have a suspense that is written with such detail that you find yourself in the scene with the characters. 

The best part of the book for me was the end, or was it really the end or just the beginning for the characters involved?

I live in Brighton with my husband and a tabby cat called Chester. After a career in public sector admin, most recently at the University of Brighton, it was time to stop dreaming about being a writer and actually do something about it! Fast forward to the present, and now I’m both traditionally published and self-published, with five women’s fiction novels under my own name, and five ‘cosy’ reads, writing as Zara Thorne. I’ve also published a book of short stories, most of which were previously published in The People’s Friend magazine. ‘The Wife’s Revenge’ is my first foray into the psychological suspense genre.

Two Tides To Turn By RR Gall Blog Tour with Review

Two Tides To Turn

By RR Gall

 

Synopsis

A family ripped asunder.
A terrible secret lurks in a thrilling novel of love, grief, and mystery.

Patrick thought his grandfather, John, died before he was born.
In later life, he finds out that it wasn’t true. For the first five years of Patrick’s life, they stayed in the same small village.
So why were they kept apart?

Patrick wishes to search the past to find the reason – but only if he can be united with his young daughter first.
And that means bringing her home to Scotland.
It means journeying to France to take her away from the care of her mother, Patrick’s ex-wife.

In 1915, with the war raging in Europe, John is a young man working on the family farm. Not yet old enough to enlist but aware of its looming threat, he meets Catherine. But his attempts at courtship end suddenly when an accident rips his life apart.

Told in alternate chapters, set, mainly, in South-West Scotland, this is the dramatic story of Patrick, interwoven with John’s traumatic life.




Christie’s Review

4.5 STARS

Well, this is one of those books I have to wait before I write a review. It is a book I had to really process before being able to write about it. It is a haunting story of love, grief, betrayals of the worst kind, and a mystery.

 

It’s a book about Patrick and his grandfather, John, told in parallel timelines.  Patrick grew up thinking his grandfather had died before he was born. Imagine his surprise when he realizes that he and his grandfather lived in the same village for years, but he was always kept away from him. After his own father’s death, he wants to know why. Thus, begins one mystery, but Patrick also wants to see his little girl again. That in of itself is another intriguing part of the storyline.

 

I can’t go into much more detail as it will spoil the book, and I definitely don’t want to do that. The synopsis doesn’t even scratch the surface of the intensity of this book. There really are no words to accurately tell you that. All the characters are very well fleshed out. I couldn’t put the book down until I was finished. The characters are still with me and probably will be for a while!

The Falling of Stars by Traci Finlay Release Blitz

TFoS - RB banner

“An intense, eye-opening psychological thriller about a mother, her teenage son, and a manipulative online stalker. It doesn’t get more creepy than that.”

– Claire Contreras, New York Times bestselling author

The Falling of Stars, an all-new intriguing psychological thriller from Traci Finlay, is available now!

The Falling of Stars_ebook

When a high school freshman commits suicide, everyone at Liberty School of Excellence is shocked—especially Eve Hunter, who is not only the English teacher at Liberty, but also a friend of the victim’s family. Although devastated, Eve is prepared to offer her love and support.

But when the grieving mother discloses her theory that her son was secretly bullied to death at school, Eve is conflicted. Not at a prestigious school like Liberty, Eve is certain. Regardless, she agrees to do some underground (and possibly illegal) investigating—even if that means risking her career. After all, the pain of losing a child trumps that of losing a job.

Eve isn’t the only one delving into secrets. Her son, Malik Hunter, is a sophomore at Liberty whose perfect life is a perfect lie. Behind his good looks, straight A’s, and the facemask of his football helmet, Malik battles a crippling depression. But someone sees through it all. Someone who reaches out to him on LibertyNet, the school’s online intranet. Someone who seems to know Malik better than he knows himself. Someone evil.

Eve believes a cyberbully may be lurking in the dark realms of LibertyNet.

Malik knows there is.

Unless anybody in this household is willing to reveal their secrets, someone could end up falling over the edge … literally.

Manipulated Lives

Manipulated Lives

by H.A. Leuschel

 

Synopsis:

Five compelling true-to-life stories each highlighting a narcissist’s manipulative mind games.


Narcissists are everywhere

They can be witty, charming and highly charismatic.

Anyone can be their target.

At first their devious, calculating mind games can be hard to spot because they are masters of disguise, but then they revert to their true self of being controlling and angry in private. Their main aim: to dominate and use others to satisfy their needs, with a complete lack of compassion and empathy for their victim. 

All stories highlight to what extent narcissistic abuse can distort lives and threaten our self-worth yet ultimately, also send a positive message that once the narcissist is unmasked, the victims can at last break free.





Christie’s Review

4 STARS

Wow!!! This is quite the psychological thriller, yet it’s different! This is a book full of short stories that every person should read. 

As the synopsis states, “ Narcissists are everywhere. Anyone can be their target.” That statement is 100 percent accurate. Three of the books are told from the victims’ points of view, one an elderly woman, one who is in her thirties, and a young teenager. What the three have in common is a master manipulator in their lives who have hurt them, some physically and all mentally. Each woman is from a different walk of life, from different socio-economic backgrounds. 

The last two stories give an insight into the mind of the narcissists. What a fascinating and scary look into the mind of a psychopath! The journey of these victims was amazing. I loved seeing them find the strength to escape and find a new path to happiness.

Injections of Insanity

Injections of Insanity (The DI Sterling Series #3)

by Lorraine Mace

Synopsis:

Detective Inspector Paolo Sterling has just six weeks to solve a series of murders by insulin injection, with nothing to connect the victims except the manner of death and a note left at each crime scene.

The murderer, determined to avenge a wrong from many years earlier, gets close to his prey by assuming various identities.

Can Paolo win in his race against the pretender?

 

Add a heading (1)

 

Injections of Insanity is the third book in this addictive series! I always think Lorraine Mace can’t get any better, but she continues to prove me wrong!!!!

In this book, DI Paolo has another hard case in front of him. What appears to be one murder continues to multiply. Most of these victims appear to be well-respected members of society. As we all know, everything isn’t always what it appears to be. I’m not going to reveal more about the plot because I hate spoilers. Just know…you are in for a great mystery with plenty of twists and turns. I really thought I knew who the murderer was this time, but again, I was proven wrong!!!!!

 

On another note, Mace gives us more insight into Paolo’s personal life, and life seems to be looking up for him in his romantic life and his relationship with his daughter. However, Mace throws a bit of a twist in that too! I’m anxious to see where this goes! Dave is working on his personal life as well. I just love the rapport between him and Paolo.

 

Our murderer is a bit different in this one as well. Readers will see this not too far along in the book. He wasn’t completely without feelings. It appears that circumstances in life help create the monster living inside of him.

 

I love that Mace gives us a glimpse inside of the murderer’s mind, but she does this in all of her books. This is what sets her apart in her genre. Sometimes it’s a scary place to be, but it gives her readers more insight into their motivations and who they are as characters in her books. Her plotlines, the perfectly paced action, her characters, and the way she writes keeps me coming back for more! I’m looking forward to her next book in the series!!!!

The Suspects

The Suspects

by Katharine Johnson

 

Synopsis:

Shallow Grave meets The Secret History in this quirky psychological thriller

Bristol, 1988. Five young graduates on the threshold of their careers buy a house together in order to get a foot on the property ladder before prices spiral out of their reach. But it soon becomes the house share from hell.

After their New Year’s Eve party, they discover a body – and it’s clear they’ll be the first suspects. As each of them has a good reason from their past not to trust the police, they come up with a solution – one which forces them into a life of secrets and lies. But can they trust each other? 

“The hugely talented Katharine Johnson has, again delivered a tense thriller! This is a compelling novel – up there with Erin Kelly and Sophie Hannah.”

~Val Penny, author of The Edinburgh Crime Mysteries.~

 

“Gripping and frighteningly realistic. The twists and turns kept me guessing to the very end.”

~Jo Fenton, author of The Brotherhood.~




Christie’s Review

5 STARS

An amazing psychological suspense thriller that had me on the edge of my seat!!!

Five university graduates who all work at the same place decide to buy a house together. At first, it seems like a great idea. Emily, Xanthe, Stuart, Zak, and Imogene are on their best behavior with one another, but it doesn’t take long before the cracks in their arrangement begin to appear. Finding a dead body in their basement on New Year’s Eve doesn’t make it any better. That night would have far-reaching consequences for the five housemates.

Secrets, lies, and betrayals are at this heart of this book. There are so many twists and turns, but all will be revealed by the end. I know I’m not revealing much, but I can’t! I wouldn’t want to spoil a thing for those who haven’t read this one! Once you start, you won’t come up for air until the last page is finished.

The author has an amazing talent in building the suspense. By the end of every chapter, she would add some foreshadowing that would be another twist in the story! If you are looking for a nail-biter of a book, The Suspects is not to be missed!!!!

Unfinished Business

Unfinished Business (The David Trilogy Book 2)

by S C Cunningham 

 

Synopsis:

He loved being him… he got away with murder.

She loved being her… until she met him.

The steamy roller coaster ride of psychotic David’s obsession with his childhood sweetheart, a skilled mix of fuelled tension, dark humour and pulsating sex scenes.

With the help of her gutsy friends, fun-loving city girl Tara Warr is the only victim to survive David Howard’s death list. Whilst lounging in prison the hypnotic sexual tour de force enlists an eager recruit, seduces a prison warden and relocates to the sunnier climes of Mexico, a freedom short-lived when his charred remains are found in the fire of a plastic surgeon’s clinic. The police cease their search, finally Tara and her friends can relax, David is dead.

Laughter soon turns to fear when he communicates via Tara’s laptop that he is very much alive, knows their every move and is ready to finish what he started. He is among them, but who? He has a brand new face.

Tara has had enough, time to turn the tables and make him suffer.  A woman unafraid of death is a dangerous thing. Has David finally met his match?

 

Christie’s Review

5 STARS

It’s very rare that a book leaves me speechless, but this one did! If you think the first book in the series, The Penance List, was a mind bender, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Cunningham somehow topped the action and the suspense in this one.

When I write reviews for mysteries or suspense, I don’t go into too much detail as I don’t want to spoil anything for other readers. So, no spoilers from me. The book picks up after the events in book 1, and Tara thinks she might finally be safe. Too bad for her, she is anything but that. She is David’s obsession, and he will stop at nothing to have her.

I have to say that David is “hands down” is the most complex character I have ever met! He causes so many complicated feelings within me. Part of me feels sorry for him for all he has endured, but part of me is totally creeped out and frightened by him. As the author writes, “we understand the boy, but fear the man.” He is full of darkness, but he was made into the man he is by circumstances, pain, and horrific abuse. He leaves me completely conflicted.

As conflicted as I am about David, I feel the same with Tara. She has complicated feelings for him as well. She sees the damaged child, but she also sees the psychological mess he has become! All I know is I definitely have no desire to walk in her shoes.

I have never had a writer make me question things or had me in such an emotional state before. That proves to me how incredibly talented she is! Not many writers can say they make readers feel that way! I have no clue where the next book will take me, but I’m absolutely sure it will be quite a ride!

About The Author

Unfinished Business Author Poc

 

British Author S C Cunningham (The Penance List, Unfinished Business and The Deal) creates psychological and paranormal thrillers with a skilled mix of fueled tension, dark humor, and pulsating sex scenes. Her works offer a fresh level of sincerity and authority, rare in fiction.

Cunningham writes what she knows. Abducted as a child, she survived; and every night for months afterward, she prayed to God, asking for a deal. This personal journey sparked the fuse behind the intriguing and riveting fictional world she portrays in The Deal, the first in the Fallen Angel Series.

About Tuck Me In Tight

George Washington Township, New Jersey has been relatively quiet ever since it was turned upside down following a high profile kidnapping. During the lull in excitement Detective Claire Goodnite has enjoyed being in the love bubble with the sexy SAIC Wesley O’Connell.

Never fully believing that she was capable of a committed relationship—with Wes or with anyone—leaves Claire feeling undeserving of the elusive happily ever after. She has never let herself enjoy what was within her grasp . . .

Until a string of murdered women dressed and posed like sleeping dolls shakes the very foundation of everything Claire thought she knew. Particularly when the only connection to be found between the three victims is the man who finally stole her heart for keeps, Wes.

 

But it’s like she always said, she’s bad at love.

Christie’s Review

4.5 Stars

Wow! What a great follow up to the first book in the Claire Goodnite series! When I read the synopsis, I was a bit nervous about the direction of Claire and Wesley’s relationship. I knew they would probably face a tough test, and I was right!

Rebecca did a great job of combining suspense, mystery, and romance, with a lot of creepiness thrown in! It reminded me a bit of Kiss the Girls by James Patterson, but yet was completely original. As Claire delves deeper into the mystery, she is facing some hard truths about her relationship with Wes. She will ultimately have to decide whether to trust him or not. That is incredibly hard for her considering her past.

Rebecca kept me guessing, and the twists and turns definitely kept my interest throughout the book. There was a perfect combination of romance, steam, and suspense. The further I got into the book, I felt like I was also getting to know the characters on a deeper level, and for anyone who read the first book, you know how complex these characters are. I am guessing there will be a book about Liam and Claire’s best friends because of some foreshadowing thrown in. I loved how Rebecca has just given us enough of that storyline to really make us curious. Plus, I’m dying to know the whole mystery behind Claire’s kidnapping years ago.
