THE FIRST LIE BY A.J. PARK
“This is a real page-turner. I finished it in one go!”
Martina Cole
A husband and wife cover up a murder. But the lie eats away at the fabric of their relationship and things unravel till they can’t trust anyone – even each other.
“A great thriller that will keep you turning the pages late into the night.” Luca Veste
A freak accident. An impossible choice. But what was the first lie?
When Paul Reeve comes home to find his wife in the bathroom, bloodied and shaking, his survival instinct kicks in.
Alice never meant to kill the intruder. She was at home, alone, and terrified. She doesn’t deserve to be blamed for it. Covering up the murder is their only option.
But the crime eats away at the couple and soon they can’t trust anyone – even one another…
But there is much more at stake than anyone realises – and many more people on their trail than they can possibly evade…

 
“Fast-moving, gripping, the ground shifting perpetually beneath your feet as you read… I read it in one sitting.”

Alex Marwood

*PROMO* – TIDELANDS by Philippa Gregory

ONLY 99p at the moment….    https://amzn.to/2xIGRxn

THE BRAND NEW SERIES FROM THE SUNDAY TIMES NUMBER ONE BESTSELLING AUTHOR

England 1648. A dangerous time for a woman to be different . . .

Midsummer’s Eve, 1648, and England is in the grip of civil war between renegade King and rebellious Parliament.  The struggle reaches every corner of the kingdom, even to the remote Tidelands – the marshy landscape of the south coast.

Alinor, a descendant of wise women, crushed by poverty and superstition, waits in-the graveyard under the full moon for a ghost who will declare her free from her abusive husband.  Instead she meets James, a young man on the run, and shows him the secret ways across the treacherous marsh, not knowing that she is leading disaster into the heart of her life.

Suspected of possessing dark secrets in superstitious times, Alinor’s ambition and determination mark her out from her neighbours. This is the time of witch-mania, and Alinor, a woman without a husband, skilled with herbs, suddenly enriched, arouses envy in her rivals and fear among the villagers, who are ready to take lethal action into their own hands.

‘The first in a planned series . . . The author crafts her material with effortless ease. Her grasp of social mores is brilliant, the love story rings true and the research is, as ever, of the highest calibre‘    Elizabeth Buchan, Daily Mail

**PROMO** – Little Doubt by Rachel Lynch is OUT TODAY……

46268EFD-5AD6-41AB-A89A-AA3D8B467D89

 

 

Little Doubt by Rachel Lynch is OUT TODAY !!!
I originally posted my review of this brilliant instalment to the DI Kelly Porter series by Rachel Lynch. But here it is again…….

 

#7 in the DI Kelly Porter series by Rachel Lynch, but can also be read as a stand-alone.

This starts with the murder of Ella, a wealthy, middle-class woman, while out for a run.

Then a young woman, from a very different background is stabbed to death on a nearby rundown estate.

Are these two deaths related?

DI Kelly Porter begins her investigation, treating each case with the same determination to find the killers and the truth. Her boss, the truly reprehensible Superintendent Ormond knew Ella and begins interfering with Kelly’s investigation. He wants a quick result, but at what cost?

Kelly is concerned with his methods and feels there is something else going on….just who can she trust?

So well plotted, this is so topical too, with the current prevalence of knife crime it feels very close to home. Kelly is a great character, with her determination and lighter moments with family make her well rounded.

There’s also police corruption, secrets and of course murder in this gripping and tense police procedural. Another great read from Rachel Lynch and I’m already looking forward to Book #8.

Thank you to the publishers and NetGalley for the opportunity to read this ARC for free. This is my honest and unbiased review.

ALSO BOOK 8’s Cover will be revealed on Friday….woooohoooo…..can’t wait
