Single: A totally gripping psychological thriller full of twists 


‘I keep feeling like I’m being watched – dropping the boys off at school, choosing wine at the supermarket – but when I turn around there’s nobody there…’

When single mother Darcy’s son falls from a rope bridge at a local playground, life stands still. She clutches his small, limp body, frozen, until a pair of strong hands push her aside, and she watches as George, a local doctor, saves her son’s life.

George is a single parent too, and with his twinkling hazel eyes, easy charm, and lack of wedding band is almost too good to be true, but coffee becomes lunch, lunch becomes dinner, and soon they can’t go an evening without seeing each other. When he invites her to move into his beautiful home with its sprawling garden for her boys, Darcy doesn’t hesitate.

But as Darcy is settling in, she receives a bunch of flowers with a chilling message. George says they’re from an obsessed ex-girlfriend, Opal, and days later Opal turns up at Darcy’s son’s football match. She claims to have shocking information that could threaten George’s custody of his daughter.

Darcy doesn’t know who to trust, but she’s starting to suspect that, whatever the truth, she might have put her beloved boys into terrible danger …

From the million-copy-bestselling author K.L. Slater this utterly gripping psychological thriller will make you gasp out loud as you race towards the unforgettable twist. If you loved The Girl on the Train and The Wife Between Us this book is for you.

First Line Friday

I was searching through some book blogs the other day and came across this…

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

So I thought I would share it with all that follow


The e-mail arrived in my inbox like an unexploded bomb:  Maria Weston wants to be friends on Facebook.

For a second I miss the Facebook reference, and just see “Maria Weston wants to be friend.”  Instinctively I slam the Laptop shut.  It feels as though a sponge has been lodged in my throat, soaking up water, swelling and clogging, leaving me struggling for breath.

I attempt to breathe deeply, trying to get myself back under control.  Perhaps I was mistaken.  I must have been mistaken because this cannot possibly be happening.  Slowly I raise the lid of my laptop.  Hands shaking, I go back into the e-mail and this time there is no denying the bad fact of it.  Maria Weston wants to be friend with me.

I have been hearing so many good reviews on this book, and I just had to read to see for myself.

Are you ready to find out what it is?



Happy Thanksgiving

I’m thankful for all of YOU!

Writing this blog has very quickly turned into my favorite hobby. I love sharing my thoughts and my love of all things books (and sometimes life) with you! Thank you for reading, thank you for interacting, and thank you for sharing my little corner of the Internet with me and with others.Happy Thanksgiving Calligraphy Text with Illustrated Green Leaves Over White Background

Publishers Blurb:

In 2017 Andrew Smith, then Director, now Chair of the Scottish Writers’ Centre, came up with a dynamic idea to run a Twitter campaign inviting poets to pitch an idea and the winner would have a poetry pamphlet published by the SWC’s publisher partner, Red Squirrel Press. Poet, critic, essayist, editor, designer and typesetter Gerry Cambridge, poet Sheila Templeton, writer, musician and Editor of both Postbox Press (the literary fiction imprint of Red Squirrel Press) and Postbox International Short Story Magazine, Colin Will, and myself took part in a panel at the SWC, ‘How to get published’ in October 2017. Andrew received many entries, a shortlist was drawn up, Stephen Watt subsequently won and persuaded me to publish a full-length collection.

— Sheila Wakefield, Founding Editor, Red Squirrel Press

Glasgow is correctly lauded for its wonderful characters and hospitality but at the turn of the Millennium it was dubbed the ‘Murder Capital of Europe’ with sectarian divisions and organised crime rife in the city. Four of its natives have been raised around the city’s Bridgeton area, cultivated by its ill-omened beliefs, and now have to separately find a way to subsist. But one crime family firmly believes in the tradition of torture and a novel way of disposing of its detractors. Who will emerge smelling of roses—or end up pushing the roses up from the earth below?

Review of……

Dead in Venice By Fiona Leitch


Bella Tyson is a famous 40-something crime writer suffering from writer’s block ever since a bitter divorce two years before. When a fan offers her the use of an apartment in Venice, Bella jumps at it, hoping a change of scene will have her writing again. Once there, she soon meets Will, a charming Englishman, who shows her around the city.

Enchanted by both Will and her new surroundings, Bella decides to write a supernatural murder mystery and begins researching local legends and the city’s more sinister side, including an illicit visit to the island of Poveglia, spooky former home of Venice’s asylum. Soon Bella uncovers more than she has bargained for and finds herself enmeshed in a series of gruesome real-life murders that uncannily mirror the legends she is researching.

As she and Will join forces to investigate, real life and local lore merge disconcertingly – for nothing in Venice turns out to be what seems, including Will….

My Thoughts:

I received a copy of this book from The Fiction Cafe – Review Group and publishers for an honest review – Thank you

This is the first that I have read from this author.   It was well-written and well-paced novel and kept me wanting to know more about Venice.

This is a great romantic tour of the sights of Venice….not, although it is obviously set in Venice, and there is a smattering of romance, it is also a grotty tale of intrigue and murder.  I enjoyed it, and it was a fast read.  I am hoping that there will be a sequel to this.  If you are looking for a fast – paced book, then give this one a try.  I am giving this 5 Stars.

Goodreads Monday

I follow this book blog and seen this so, I thought I would share it with you all.  my-post-11

Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme that was started by @Lauren’s Page Turners. The meme is pretty easy to follow, to participate simply choose a random book from your TBR and explain why you want to read it!

After randomizing via Goodreads (going to my to-read shelf, scrolling down and putting sort order by random) the following book tumbled first from that crowded shelf…

So I have this one book that I finally decided to buy since I was having a hard time getting it at my local library…..

Friend Request by Laura Marshall


Summary from Goodreads :

Maria Weston wants to be friends. But Maria Weston is dead. Isn’t she?

1989. When Louise first notices the new girl who has mysteriously transferred late into their senior year, Maria seems to be everything the girls Louise hangs out with aren’t. Authentic. Funny. Brash. Within just a few days, Maria and Louise are on their way to becoming fast friends.

2016. Louise receives a heart-stopping email: Maria Weston wants to be friends on Facebook. Long-buried memories quickly rise to the surface: those first days of their budding friendship; cruel decisions made and dark secrets kept; the night that would change all their lives forever.

Louise has always known that if the truth ever came out, she could stand to lose everything. Her job. Her son. Her freedom. Maria’s sudden reappearance threatens it all, and forces Louise to reconnect with everyone she’d severed ties with to escape the past. But as she tries to piece together exactly what happened that night, Louise discovers there’s more to the story than she ever knew. To keep her secret, Louise must first uncover the whole truth, before what’s known to Maria–or whoever’s pretending to be her–is known to all.

Surprised to see this one pop up randomly as I was checking to see if it was available on Kindle Unlimited and my local library.  But still no luck, its not available at my local library, and I haven’t seen it on Kindle Unlimited.  But I did find it on my Ibooks, so you guessed it I bought it.

I have heard and read so many good things about the book and author.  I also have seen great reviews for this book.  So now that I have purchased it I will see just how great it is.  Can’t wait to start this one.

My Thoughts

Thank-you to NetGalley, One More Chapter and Carissa Ann Lynch for allowing me to read an advanced copy of Like Follow Kill which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.

I really liked Carissa’s style. She does a great job at getting a readers attention right from the start and takes you hostage until the final page. Like Follow Kill is the perfect book to get engrossed in. It is a fast paced thrilling ride which I thoroughly enjoyed. A new author to me I will definitely keeping my eye out for future books from Carissa. It was a pleasure to be able to read and review Like Follow Kill, which I highly recommend.

In Like, Follow, Kill we meet Camilla who has been slightly agoraphobic ever since the car accident that took the life of her husband Chris and left her badly scarred and injured. To pass the time, she follows an ex-classmate of her’s Instagram page Violet who seems to have it all with her amazing job as a pharmaceutical rep which allows her to travel all over the country, her clothes and her looks. One evening though things start to get a bit strange on her page as she posts a video at 2 am saying she feels someone is stalking her, then disappears then a few days later a call for help comes to Camille’s inbox. Camille believing Violet is in danger leaves and takes her husband’s ashes on a road trip as they had always planned too.

Like, Follow, Kill shows readers the dark side of social media where you never know who you are talking to behind the screen and how we can all live a facade online and appear to be living in this perfect little world which makes other’s envious. Like, Follow, Kill was another good mystery by Carissa Ann Lynch that readers will enjoy especially if you love the social media angle.

My Thoughts

I would like to thank the Fiction Care Review and the publishers for a ARC copy of this book for an honest review.

WOW another great read.  I recommend that you read the Helen first Book Lost Girls before you read this one, as there are several references to the previous story and there is an assumption throughout that you know who each of the characters mentioned are.  This book was fast paced and kept my interest till the end.

A perfectly paced supense/thriller that keeps you hanging on right till the end. A must read series.  I am giving this a 5-star review, and I can’t wait to see if there is a continuation of this series.  I highly recommend this Author and her books.
