Welcome to another weekly round-up of books I have read this week. I also have a Blog Tour review out today as well.
Last week, well the late hours of Saturday night saw me finish my Goodreads Reading Challenge of 200 books. The book I chose to complete the challenge was a fabulous one and you will see what it was below 🙂
The Secret Path by Karen Swan was a wonderful read for a cold autumn night. When Tara Tremain visits the island she is forced to confront her ex, Alex. He used her and she now needs his help as she is in the middle of the jungle trying to help a sick child. A wonderful read and one that I adored, with gorgeous descriptions, wonderful settings and some fabulous characters. A mix of contemporary fiction, mystery with a good deal of suspense.
When I saw the Blog Tour for The Lost by Simon Beckett, I along with loads of other Book Bloggers asked for a spot. This is the first time I have read anything by this author and I am so glad it is the first book in a planned series. Dark, twisted, riveting and a blooming good read. A crime thriller told over a dual timeline and it had me hooked.
I do love this series and The World Cup Mystery by Peter Bartram sees Colin Crampton, an investigative journalist once more in the thick of things. It’s 1966 and Colin and his girlfriend Shirley have had to cut short their holiday and rush back home to Brighton. Trouble it seems finds Colin no matter where he is, and the trouble this time has the potential to be very serious indeed. A fun, cosy crime mystery series and one I will share my review for soon as part of the Blog Tour.
I was lucky enough to win an e-copy of A Christmas Caroline by Camilla Isley, The author has taken the story A Christmas Carol and given it a modern-day spin using the hardworking, businesswoman Caroline as her main lead. I really enjoyed this story and it didn’t take me long to get into this. A wonderful festive story with a moral. The review will follow shortly.
So, this is the book that I read that hit my Goodreads target for the year…
Dead Ground by M.W. Craven is the 4th book in the Washing ton Poe series and what a belter of a book it was. I adore the team of Poe and Tilly Bradshaw, they are like chalk and cheese but make such an amazing team. This time they are called in to help with murder, one that has more secrets, red tape and officious persons than they have come across before. Not that this is ever going to stop Poe from being Poe of course. It is a brilliant story and one that once again had me hooked.
Another week is done,
Have a great week ahead and stay safe,
All the best
