Less You Know: A Gripping Psychological Suspense Thriller (Ashes to Ashes, #2) by Rowena Holloway – Review by Melissa Agena

Less You Know (Ashes to Ashes #2)Less You Know by Rowena Holloway
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

All I can say is, “WOW!” Less You Know is the second book in the Ashes to Ashes series by Roweena Holloway. Now I will also say that you really need to read the first book before reading this one. There is a lot of information that book that will give you a foundation for this book. Charlotte Ashe wants to expose Tyrone Garner. That is until Charlotte’s best friend Allie goes missing. Now there are all kinds of questions that arise. Charlotte is definitely on a mission to find her friend and uncover the real truths behind Tyrone Garner. Just like the first book, there are so many twists and turns that you will run into, which make this story riveting! I seriously could not put this book down! Charlotte’s character has really changed in the sense that she’s much more sure of herself and has serious guts! She has grown since her first appearance in the first book. I really love this series! This author is amazing at her descriptions and she definitely has a way of pulling you in and keeping you interested the whole way through. Truly captivating writing! There is also a cliffhanger that has you sitting on the edge of your seat wanting more and more! I cannot wait for the next book in the series! I hope it is just as good and the last two book have been.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Less You Know is the second book in the Ashes to Ashes series. It is left open for the story to continue. I recommend reading the first book to get a solid background on the characters and the events that led up to the second book.

Less You Know is all over the place, and not in a bad way. The author has written the story in such a way that it keeps you guessing. Characters coming at you from all sides and misdirection (or is it?) keeps you hooked.

If you read the first book you will understand why I say this: at one point while reading Less You Know, I wanted to smack Charlotte and ask her what she was thinking. I mean, seriously. Oi vey! But that is part of the entertainment, watching the characters do both expected and unexpected things. After the developments in this book, I find myself liking Garner a little bit more. And Piers…what an (insert a colorful expletive here). Of course, with the way these stories are written, who knows how things will play out. I might end up changing my mind about any or all of the characters.

Intense. Suspense. Drama. Unanswered questions. Must have answers! Looking forward to the next book. (There better be a next book, lol)!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

LESS YOU KNOW is book 2 in the “Ashes to Ashes” Series and I’m not really sure it should be read as a stand-alone. There are a lot of references to book 1 AND if you aren’t used to the writing style AND lost on plot points, I think it would be a less enjoyable reading experience for you – and let’s face it… the point of reading is to have the best experience possible.

This is a multi-layered story with different threads that run throughout. It’s a mystery/suspense with twists and turns along the way. It’s one of those stories that I thought I had a handle on and then *poof* oh wait, there is something I missed. The story is fluid and, like with book 1, the timeline is well defined and told from multiple POV. Several times, I had to look back at the chapter headings to figure out what time it was and whose POV I was reading.

I’ve enjoyed watching the MC grow and find her voice and I would recommend this series (read in order, of course).

Less You Know: gripping suspense is the second book in the Ashes to Ashes serie by Rowena Holloway. This book can be read as a standalone but I highly recommend you read them in order you definitely won’t be disappointed. This book is full of mystery, action and suspense, it will keep you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. This book features Charlotte Ashe, an investigative reporter.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Less You Know: gripping suspense (Ashes to Ashes Book 2) by Rowena Holloway ​is the second book in the series and you really need to read Bad Things Happen, the first book in the series as it lays the groundwork for this book. Less You Know is a psychological thriller that is dangerous, full of secrets and suspense and is full of many twists and turns that you don’t know what is going to happen, even when you think you do. Rowena’s skillful writing takes you on a gripping journey where you don’t know who is who and what is what.

Charlotte Ashe once again finds herself in the thick of things when her friend is missing. Investigating is in her blood but at what cost. The closer she gets, the more she finds out and the more danger she is in, shows just how much she doesn’t know who her friend is and the many secrets she holds.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

a great read about truth. After the events of the last book, Allie is eager to spend Christmas with friends. But it all goes wrong with a knock on the door. Charlottes life is turned upside down when Allie goes missing and fears for her safety. Desperate to find her charlotte must uncover some seceets totry and find her friend. Can she discover the truth before its too late?
a great read. Well developed plot with twists and turns. Although i did find the Tyrone Garned subplots distracted the narrative from the search for Allie at times but it does make sense in the end. Well developed characters like charlotte standing up for herself but concerned for her friend. i loved how the sequel was more about Allie, to flesh out this character from the first novel as shy and reserved but more to her than it first appears.
i loved the visual detail throughout the novel like with the senseof Christmas with the lights and tree and also the smells of cake and sounds of music for a warm feel that can also hide dangers perfectly writfen. The use of suspense was drawn out to perfection as you raced to solvefhe myserty and find Allie with Charlotte,. The switch of perspectives worked well once again to display both sides of the stroy and was easy to follow. The times and dates for each chapter werea a great addition once again and helped to fuel the fast paced feel of ghe novel and time fo find Allieslipping way quickly. Fast paced actions and high stakes made for a captivating read. Overall, a great read and i eould givd it four stars.

My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

Less You Know (Ashes to Ashes Book 2) by Rowena Holloway was a gripping suspenseful read, that had me on the edge of my seat.

Wow, I was pulled in again by this talent author I was held captive by this heart pounding read. The twist, turns and plot bombs did a number on my nerves! At times I had to put this book down so I could regroup before diving right back into this mess of mystery. Before I get to much into this review, this is book two, and I highly suggest reading book one, as there are of course spoilers in this one, and much needed background info on our MC.

I don’t want to give anything away, and any bread crumbs might spoil this thriller for you. So I will tell you that the writing is on point, the detail is rich and engaging and the tone, it takes you in this dark almost edgy place, that you can’t help but feel like you’re being watched. It matches the setting of this read, and frankly I have nothing bad to say.

Overall this multi layered, feels ripping read will, as I have said, capture you. So please take my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval, that this book will have you on the edge of your seat, flipping pages to see what will happen next

Happy Reading

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow! I just finished the amazing second book in the Ashes to Ashes series, “Less You Know” and it was crazy good! I LOVE mystery/thrillers and this book really delivered! Charlotte Ashe is back on the Garner case and this time she has help from Allie Brown, a woman Charlotte meets who has a way in with Garner. I don’t want to say much more because Rowena Holloway has woven a very intricate story and I don’t want to spoil a single thing! Most books I read like this, I can sort of guess how things will play out, but this time, I had no idea and I loved it! The twists were so good! Just do yourself a favor and make sure you have read the first book “Bad Things Happen.” But seriously, read this book series!! I can’t wait to read the final book, “From the Ashes!” I give “Less You Know” five obvious stars!!

Less You Know was a great 5 star read and book two in the Ashes to Ashes series.
This is a great psychological thriller that pulls you right in. You won’t want to stop until your done.

Charlotte is a very strong and determined woman. Once she gets on the trail of something or someone she doesn’t stop until she gets answers and Tyrone is the one she is focused on.

When Charlotte’s friend Allie disappears, she starts looking for her, as she’s searching she uncovers some secrets about Allie. What will happen when/if she learns the truth about both Allie and Tyrone?

I was pulled in once again by the author’s writing, I felt like I was right there with the characters. I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what was coming next. I love a good story that has me thinking the whole time and I was surprised with the ending as well. There are several twists and turns. The secondary characters were great. If you’re looking for a great psychological thriller I highly suggest this series/book. I can’t wait to read the next book.

Wow! The second book in this series and I loved it just as much as, if not more than, the first one! This can be read as a standalone however I would 100% recommend reading book 1 also. The story was an exciting, gripping read that I had a really hard time putting down. The twists and turns in the story are probably amongst some of the best I have ever read; just when I thought I knew what was going to happen there was another twist. The author absolutely kept me on my toes and on the edge of my seat with this read. The ending was brilliant! I loved that I couldn’t even begin to guess what was going to happen in the story, I felt like I was trying to solve it alongside reading it. The dual point of view meant I got information from different characters as I was trying to piece together just what had happened!
A fantastic, gripping read one that I absolutely recommend! I am certainly looking forward to reading more from this author in the future.
