The Long Weekend

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Incredibly engrossing - I pretty much read this one straight through. From the totally gripping introduction, through the twists and turns that fooled me (not once, but twice!), all the way to the climactic and satisfying ending, this is a great read that will see you through an afternoon,…

Remember My Name

⭐️⭐️⭐️ 1/2 “Like the rest of her life, it was beautiful on the outside and chaos on the inside” Cressida Howard is a woman who appears to have it all. A beautiful (and smart) seventeen year old daughter, Emily-Jane, a rich and successful husband, Laurence, (an e-commerce kingpin) and her…

The Good Liar

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 1/2 Slow and pendulous, this story’s hold took time to build for me, but when it eventually did, oh my, was it worth it! Thick with the sort of uneasy menace that creeps under your bones, taking its time to settle in fully, the pull of this story was…

The Chair Man

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Thoroughly unique, this thriller has a fresh and vibrant readability that is unlike anything I have read before. Michael Hollinghurst is a solicitor, - a charming, congenial, approachable kind of man. A loving middle-aged dad with a comfortable middle-class London life. The sort of man you would love to…

The Heights

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Twists within twists within more twists. Maybe one twist too many? You decide, - I confess, I still haven’t made up my mind. Ellen Saint is one “crazy obsessed mother.” Neurotic, icily consumed by her rage (superseding her remarkable fragility), plagued with anxieties, including a terrifying (and thematic to…

This Might Hurt

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Wow. That was one ending I did not predict! What a fabulous ride - twists and turns do not come anywhere near describing the devious path this book takes to tell its tale. A dark and clammy story brimming with fear, fearlessness (is it a good thing? Is it…

Deadly Little Lies

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “Is it really possible to start over? To change? Or are we all destined to be haunted by ghosts we thought we’d left behind?” Reminiscent of “The Girls Are All So Nice Here” (albeit with a much nicer group of protagonists), this book tells a “now” versus “then” tale…

The Prized Girl

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Crazy unputdownably good, it’s hard to believe this is a debut novel. Virginia Kennedy, our darkly messed-up, severely hurting, main protagonist, is twenty-six years old, living in a small New England town. Biting sarcasm, extreme social avoidance, and an alcohol-induced haze, Virginia’s prime tools for coping, do little to…

The Guilt Trip

⭐️⭐️⭐️ 1/2 What happens when four friends take a trip that most would consider delightful, - and in this creepy and disturbingly-multi-layered case, find instead it exceeds their very worst fears. Rachel Hunter, forty-two years old, is a compassionate and non-confrontational kind of woman - a good wife and a…

The Golden Couple

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Avery Chambers has lost her license to practice as a therapist, and that’s fine with her. Operating now as a “consultant”, Avery’s clients receive her own brand of tough-love healing: an intensive ten-session extremely hands-on program, with Avery serving her clients by owning as many hats as she sees…
