REVIEW: “Two Nights” by Kathy Reichs

two-nights-9781476726458_hr

I’ve seen some reviews from my Goodreads friends that gave this book a 3 out of 5 stars. I honestly would give it a 4.5 out of 5 stars.

I love Kathy’s books. Her Temperance Brennan series got me started in reading crime fiction and mysteries. (I also love her Virals series). This book was a bit different from her other books. It’s a stand alone but I wouldn’t mind if it became a series too.

In this book we meet a different character, Sunday Night, or Sunnie as she’s called by those that know her. As this book starts, Sunnie is on her boat when she gets a visit from Beau, a friend of hers asking her to visit with a woman about her missing granddaughter. One thing leads to another and Sunnie ends up being hired by this woman to try to find her missing granddaughter. Sunnie discovers that the girl was kidnapped by a terrorist group and is determined to save her.

Kathy has a way of writing a story that will keep you on the edge of your seat and not wanting to get out of your chair (or bed) to go do everyday things, like going to work. Haha.

If Kathy decides to make this a series, I’m all for it but I do hope to see more Temperance Brennan novels in the future.

If any of you are looking for a great Summer read I would suggest this one. It comes out in the US on July 11th, 2017.

Thank you to NetGalley, Kathy Reichs, and the publisher for a copy of this in exchange for an honest review.

Review: Deep Down Dead by Steph Broadribb

Rating: 5/5 stars

Wow… I honestly wasn’t sure what to expect when I started this book. I had heard that it was a fast paced and exciting book but it was more that that. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time I read it!

The only bounty hunter related novels that I’ve read are the Stephanie Plum novels by Janet Evanovich (which I LOVE, by the way) so this was quite different from those books but in a really great way.

I probably could have read this book in a day or two if day jobs didn’t have to exist. This book starts off by Lori taking on a case where she has to pick up her former mentor, JT, who she worked with when she first became a bounty hunter. She has to take her daughter with her as she doesn’t have anyone to watch her while she’s gone. She later realizes that turns out to be a terrible mistake.

This book was well written and starts off in the present but as it goes on you learn a bit about Lori and JT’s past and how exactly they met.

I honestly didn’t want this book to end and I’m very excited to find out what will happen in the next book, which I already can’t wait for. If you’re looking for a fast paced, edge of your seat thriller, I highly recommend this novel!

Thank you to NetGalley for my copy of this in exchange for a review.

 

Review: The Child

Rating: 5/5 stars

Where to start with this one? Well, I should mention that I loved Fiona’s first book called “The Widow” and this new book is even better.

“The Child” is one of those books that switches perspectives with each chapter. I usually don’t enjoy books that do that but it worked well with this one.

The journalist in this book is Kate Waters. She was also a character in Fiona’s first book “The Widow.” Kate catches on to a story of a baby’s body that was found at a construction site by a worker. As she pieces information together after talking to people who used to live on the street where the construction is taking place, a shocking discovery is made.

The end of this book caught me by surprise. I loved it! Fiona wrote this book wonderfully. Highly recommend for a summer read! It releases on June 27, 2017. Preorder here: The Child

Thank you to the First to Read website, the publisher, and Fiona herself for the early copy of this book.

Review: The Breakdown

Rating: 4.5/5 stars

I read B.A. Paris’s first book “Behind Closed Doors” and enjoyed it but I honestly liked this one much more.

This starts off with Cass being on the phone with her husband, Matthew, as she’s getting ready to head home during a terrible storm. Matthew tells her not to take the shorter way home through Blackwater Lane but she does and everything changes the next morning as she wakes up and hears that a woman has been murdered on that road, the woman she saw as she drove through there the night before.

This book was honestly not what I expected and I mean that in a good way. I enjoyed “Behind Closed Doors” but this book was much better. It kept me guessing and on the edge of my seat until the end.

When I got to the last few chapters, the book had a total twist that I didn’t see coming. It made the book so much better. I would have honestly read this book in one sitting if work hadn’t gotten in my way.

If you want a compelling read, I definitely suggest this one.

Thank you to NetGalley for my copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

 

Review: The Girl in The Red Coat 

Rating: 2.5/5 stars

To start off, I thought this book was going to go a whole different direction. I did enjoy the writing as it was different but I felt the book lacked excitement. 

I dont usually like when books have more that one narrator but this one did well with it. I was happy to see that it wasn’t a normal kidnapping kind of novel. It made the book a bit more interesting, especially when you find out why “Gramps” told Carmel to come with him.

Due to the lack of excitement, I found this book a bit boring to read. I ended up giving it 2.5 stars because of the last 5 chapters and the ending. 

If any of you choose to read this one, I hope you enjoy it more that I did.
