BOOK REVIEW – Mother By S.E. Lynes

Christopher Harris has always been somewhat of a misfit. He’s just never really felt part of anything, especially not his family – and that was even long before his 2 siblings arrived.

BOOK REVIEW – The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena

I loved this fast-paced, breathtaking psychological thriller! This is one of those 'just one more chapter' books, and before you know it, it's 2:00 am!

She's 17, unattractive, overweight, unhappy, and practically friendless ... until for some reason, the dashing Larry Miller takes an unfathomable interest in her. After that, her life … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW – The Optician’s Wife by Betsy Reavley

BOOK REVIEW – The Damselfly by S.J.I. Holliday

This is the third of Holliday’s ‘Banktoun’ trilogy, this works well as a standalone too. I’ve only read the first book – Blackwood - and missed the second – Willow Walk. Katie is a bright teenager who, despite her challenging background, is planning her future in London. Together with her boyfriend Neil, and her teachers … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW – The Damselfly by S.J.I. Holliday
