I read and loved "The Promise by Ann Weisberger" and am now halfway through "The Painted bridge by Wendy Wallace"
I loved every book I've read this month apart from
Human Remains by Elizabeth Haynes which I absolutely hated despite loving her first two books this was slow and boring - the female lead annoyed me intensely I wanted to shake her and the nasty piece of work Colin disgusted me and I got bored with reading about him masturbating all the time ...
Recenetly finished this and loved it ..... here are my thoughts
What a dark and twisted mind this author has! Fortunately that's just what is needed to write gripping tense and scary thrillers and she does that with a great amount of panache. Having read and enjoyed the highly acclaimed Gone Girl which is more psychological, whereas ...

I've just read two very dark (to match my mood) thrillers and enjoyed them both
Dark Places by Gillian Flynn - author of Gone girl - brilliant twists and turns in a kind of psychological whodunnit about a woman who as a 7 year old was present when her family were brutally murdered.
White Horse by Alex Adams - I won this in a prize draw from ...
I have 2 books on the go at present - both rather chilling.
Dark Places by Gillian Flynn - The chilling story of the sole survivor of a gruesome family massacre in America, when she was just 7 Libby Day survived her mother and sisters being brutally murdered, now she's an embittered adult and her notoriety is her only way to earn a living, ...
Some nice reads this month - but the most enjoyable was One step too far by Tina Seskis a gripping contemporary psychological drama
Rubbernecker - Belinda Bauer 7/10
Never look away - Linwood Barclay 8/10
Out of sight out of mind - Evonne Wareham 7/10
One step too far - Tina Seskis 9/10
Accidents Happen - Louise Millar 8/10
The Orchardist - Amanda Coplin - didn't finish just couldn't get into it at all :(
Having absolutely adored this authors debut novel The Playdate I eagerly anticipated her next book and when I spotted it available for review on Netgalley I instantly applied to read an advance copy - I knew her first book was going to be a hard act to follow ... I'm relieved to say this didn't disappoint.
Accidents happen is another ...
