Book Review…Dead Run by Erica Spindler

dead run

Liz Ames receives a phone call telling her, her sister Rachel a pastor at a small town in Florida has gone missing.  Liz listens to her answer phone messages and there’s one from Rachel telling her about some illegal activity on the island but not giving much detail.  Liz decides tk move to Key West to investigate.  Not long after she moves there a young girl is murder and a bank manager commits suicide.
This is my second Erica Spindler book and Dead Run made me realise how much I love her writing style. At one stage I felt as if I was going crazy alongside Liz and did not know what to think. The character I really fell in love with was Carla the ‘meat and potatoes’ who eventually figured everything out. This book was just the right side of gory and definitely kept me interested.

Book Review.. Unknown by Chris Martin


A couple of months ago I came across Chris Martin here on wordpress and bought his book The Stranger and adored this and reviewed it HERE.When I saw Rosie’s Review of Unknown I went and downloaded it and I loved it just as much (if not more) than The Stranger.

This about a man who wakes up in a fridge in a pizza parlour having now idea who is he, he walks out of the fridge to be attacked by the shop’s owner and if that isn’t bad enough some one else starts chasing him with a gun. He then runs and is tracked down again. He has no idea who he is, but feels all of this may have something to do with his brother..

As with The Stranger this was very well written, fast paced and full of twists and turns, Throughout the book I was engrossed and didn’t want to out it down, I had to know what happens next. I think there may be another part of the story that is yet to be written but I want it now!

Would I recommend this book? Yes

Free Book Haul!

shattered memory persuasion

I don’t feature enough book hauls on this blog compared to the amount of books I actually buy so I thought I would feature a free book haul. This is one of the joys of the kindle, free books are readily available. Some of them are the work of struggling new authors, where we find a great undiscovered writer or they are old classics like Oscar Wilde and Charles Dickens. I typed ‘Free Kindle Books’ into Amazon and this is what I picked. After buying these books I also embarked on a massive clean up of the kindle and put everything into their relevant folders.

  • A Shattered Memory by Alan Halsey
  • Persuasion by Jane Austen
  • Emma by Jane Austen
  • Love Triangle: Three Sides To The Story by Brenda Barrett
  • The Long Midnight of Barney Thomson by Douglas Lindsay
  • Sentence of Marriage by Shayne Parkinson
  • Murder on the Mind by LL Bartlett

As they were free it is true I could have bought some more but I didn’t want to be too greedy my reading list is huge already!
