Linda Strong Book Reviews

‘Overall, this new crime writer did a good job. Suspense at times is palpable. At one point in time, the good guys are chasing the bad guys, the bad guys are trying to erase all witnesses, the cops are chasing everyone, even the bad cops. I found during all this that I needed to breathe more.’

 The Quiet Geordie

‘Rebecca is a likeable character, and you immediately feel sympathy for her because she is made to feel so unwelcome. She is a determined person and has a plan to eventually solve her own mother’s murder by getting into the Homicide Squad, hence the decision to try to solve the mystery.’

The other character I immediately took to was Hound, the local gentle giant, who is one of the first people to speak to Rebecca. He’s sensitive and kind, as well as a reliable friend.

Her Dark Path by Ken Ogilvie

16 years ago Rebecca Bradley’s mother was murdered. Rebecca was only eight years old. The killer has never been caught. Growing up, Rebecca vowed that one day she would track him down and make him pay.

Now Rebecca is a young police woman in Ontario. She wants to become a homicide detective. Her first investigation is the cold case of a woman who vanished for 16 days and then was found dead in her own home. The brutal crime shocks the small Canadian town of Conroy.

The puzzling case has uncanny similarities to the murder of Rebecca’s mother. Both victims were found strangled in their own kitchens.

Can Rebecca keep her emotions together as she closes in on a killer with connections to her family and tragic past? And will she finally get justice for her mother?

Discover a new crime writer who will have you gripped till the pulsating end.

 

BOOK REVIEW: Little White Lies and Butterflies

by Suzie Tullett

When you’re digging yourself into a hole, stop digging.

A child of the nineties, Lydia Livingston is different. The last thing she’s ever wanted is to be superwoman; she knows first-hand that ‘having it all’ isn’t everything it’s cracked up to be. As far as she’s concerned, when it comes to job versus family, it’s a definite case of one or the other. And whilst most women her age have spent years climbing the corporate ladder, she’s made a career out of bagging her perfect man. At almost thirty and still single, Lydia wonders if she’d made the right choice all those years ago. And realising the time has come to take stock, she goes against her family’s wishes and banishes herself off to a distant land—all in the hope of finding a new direction.

At least that’s the plan.

But Lydia Livingston isn’t just different, she’s misunderstood. A fact she knows all too well. So when the totally unsuitable Sam comes along, she decides to tell a little white lie, re-inventing herself as a professional chef – not exactly the best new identity to come up with for a woman who can’t even cook. Of course, the last thing she expects is for him to find out the truth and start blackmailing her. Let alone find herself roped into catering for a local wedding. But with things going from bad to worse, her madder than mad family also turn up in something of a surprise visit, intent on celebrating a birthday she’s no intentions of celebrating!

My Review

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My rating 4.5 out of 5 stars

This is a very readable story about a 30 year old woman who is looking for Mr Right. She has a list of criteria that he is supposed to meet but she isn’t making any progress.

Lydia has a different perspective on life and wants something different to the life her mother has. When her last meeting with a prospective husband goes awry she decides to go to Greece to rethink her future. From then onwards life becomes increasingly difficult as a little white lie grows into a web in which Lydia becomes so entangled she is unable to escape.

Romance, humour and family relationship all play a part in this story making it a real page turner.

Thank you to Bombshell Books for providing me with the opportunity to read this book prior to publication.
