Less You Know by Rowena Holloway – Review by Kerry Baker

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

Less You Know by Rowena Holloway is the second book in the Ashes to Ashes series. This book is an enthralling as the first one. Centred around two best friends it explores the fact that we never really know people as well as we think we do.
This book absolutely grabbed my attention. I had to know what was going to happen; where had Allie gone? What secrets had she been hiding? Could Charlotte find her? Would Charlotte disappear next. I could feel my heart thumping at times as I was reading this book. It truly was edge of your seat type reading.
Rowena Holloway has such a gripping writing style. I am glad that I have discovered her work!

Killer Lawyer (Jake Wolf Book 3) by Mark Nolan – Review by Kerry Baker

Killer LawyerKiller Lawyer by Mark Nolan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

  1. Killer Lawyer by Mark Nolan is the third book in the Jake Wolfe series. This book can be read as a stand-alone however it is the return of the main character so it would be beneficial to read the other books first.
    This book was brilliant. It was exciting from start to finish. Mark Nolan takes you you on such a wild ride. The twists and turns just kept on coming. I loved that I couldn’t figure out who the killer was.
    Although I hadn’t read either of the previous two books I still felt connected to Jake. He was such an easy character to get behind and I was constantly on his side hoping he could figure things out. I will certainly be going back to read other two books immediately.View all my reviews

A Christmas Wish (A Manhattan Dream Series) by Engy Neville – Review by Kerry Baker

A Christmas WishA Christmas Wish by Engy Neville
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A Christmas Wish (A Manhattan Dream) by Engy Neville is a great book about discovering who you are and what you are capable of.
This book i found to be a great easy read, one you could sink into and lose yourself in easily for a few hours. The characters were interesting and easy to get along with, although not overly complex. However that is exactly what I wanted from a book when I picked this up. The story was well paced and kept its momentum to the end. This was an overall enjoyable book and I would definitely read more by this author.

Bad Things Happen by Rowena Holloway – Review by Kerry Baker

Bad Things Happen (Ashes to Ashes, #1)Bad Things Happen by Rowena Holloway
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Bad Things Happen by Rowena Holloway is the first book in the Ashes to Ashes series. It is an intriguing and exciting book that will keep you on your toes.
This is the first book I have read by this author and I loved how she developed the story all the way along. She wasn’t scared to twist the story round in a direction you wouldn’t necessarily see coming.
I loved that the story jumped back and forth in time. It added to the suspense of what was happening
This book is a great way to start a new series and for me was a brilliant introduction to a talented new author.

Beneath the Surface by Amy McKinley – Review by Kerry Baker

Beneath the Surface (Gray Ghost #3)Beneath the Surface by Amy McKinley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

  1. Beneath the Surface by Amy McKinley is the 3rd book in the Gray Ghost series. This book is as exciting and fast paced as the previous books in the series. The plot keeps twisting and turning and really keeps you on the edge of your seat.
    These two characters also have to be my favourite so far. You could feel the chemistry absolutely popping off the page. Even when you had no clue as to how the story would end you knew you wanted these two to work things out.
    Any McKinley has created a brilliant and adventurous series that I would highly recommend.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Tapped by Tarrah Anders is the third book in the Night Moves series. This book can be read as a stand-alone.
I found this book to be a quick and easy read, light hearted and fun. It was exactly what I was looking for at the time. The characters were easy to love and hope for. The story kept moving forward nicely. It draws you in and captures your attention without you realising it.
This is the kind of book that you will pick up intending to just read a through chapters and before you know it you are at the end. Tarrah Anders is one of those authors you can trust to consistently produce good books. And this is one you should definitely try!

Written in the Stars (Fallen Angles #2) by T. Birmingham – Review by Kerry Baker

Written in the Stars (Fallen Eagles MC Book 2)Written in the Stars by T. Birmingham
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Written in the Stars by T. Birmingham is the second book in the Fallen Eagles MC series.
This boll is as gripping and as consuming as the first. This author seriously knows how to write a novel that will grab your attention and keep you invested in every single detail throughout the whole book.
The whole way through I kept trying to figure out what was happening but the story was so fast paced and full of twists and turns that it kept me on my toes.
This book can be read on its own however I really do recommend reading book 1 first. They are both just so good I think you would be missing out by only reading one of them.

Climbing The Walls (Hart & Cole #1) by Sacha T. Y. Fortune – Review by Kerry Baker

Climbing The Walls (Hart & Cole Book 1)Climbing The Walls by Sacha T. Y. Fortuné
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Climbing The Walls by Sacha T. Y. Fortune is the first book in the Hart and Cole series. This book really delves into the complexities that is married life. It highlights that, no matter how much we might want to, sometimes we just can be perfect at everything. Sometimes we need to accept the way things actually are.
This book has introduced me to an entirely new author and what a way to be introduced it was. This book had everything. It had passion and romance as well as angst and nail biting moments. It is a detailed and interesting book. The author never lets the story rest for too long before she is moving it on and developing the characters.
I enjoyed how I didn’t always like one of the main characters as well. For me that is exactly how it can be in “real life” and it was great to see that reflected well in a book. It really helped me to connect with them.
This was a fantastic way to discover a new author and I am looking forward to the rest of this series.

The Shape of Trust by Brinda Berry – Review by Kerry Baker

The Shape of Trust (Stand By Me, #5)The Shape of Trust by Brinda Berry
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Shape of Trust by Brinda Berry is the fifth book in the Stand by Me series. This book does not need to be read in order.
This is the first book I read of this series and I can see why people are raving about it. Everything about the book is so well done you just find yourself sinking deeper into the story.
The characters were fantastic to read about. They are complex and interesting and match the story perfectly. The way the author brings them to life is brilliant to see and adds a different level to the book.
I have read other books by this author and this one showed all the same characteristics of her flawless writing. Do yourself a favour and pick up this book today!

Full Glasses and Burju Shoes by Blake Blessing – Review by Kerry Baker

Full Glasses and Burju ShoesFull Glasses and Burju Shoes by Blake Blessing
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Full Glasses and Burju Shoes by Blake Blessing is a book that will have you turning the pages in record time.
This is a new author to me and I wasn’t sure what to expect at all when I read the description. The book sounded good and like something I would enjoy. And I have to say I did really enjoy this authors writing style. The hook had an easy flow about it and the story effortlessly progressed.
I also really liked how the characters were opposites in most ways. Everything about them suggested they shouldn’t work together and yet they did. I liked how convincing their story was. The whole story was easy to read and enjoyable. One I would definitely recommend trying.
