Come Away with Me by Karma Brown

A heart-wrenching and emotionally poignant novel, Come Away with Me by Karma Brown is all about love and loss, and how to carry on with life. The book begins with tragedy, as heroine Tegan Lawson is on the way to a family party with her husband, Gabe. She is six months pregnant with their son when Gabe loses control of the car on a patch of black ice, causing a tragic accident. Tegan loses their baby, and with it any chance of ever becoming a mother again. She is understandably…

The Piano Man Project by Kat French

A romance novel with plenty of comedic twists, The Piano Man Project by Kat French caught my attention on NetGalley with its unique approach to finding the main character a date. The novel begins in one of the most unconventional ways I’ve ever experienced, with Honeysuckle Jones and her two friends, Tash and Nell, in a sex shop discussing orgasms. Both of Honey’s friends are shocked to discover that she has never had an orgasm with a man, yet Honey claims that it has never been a problem for her…

The Other Me by Saskia Sarginson

One look at the cover of The Other Me by Saskia Sarginson and you might be forgiven for thinking that this is a dark psychological thriller that follows the recent trend for mistaken identities. In fact, this book is so much more than that, exploring how everything you think you know about your life could come crashing down at any moment. Set mainly across the eighties and nineties, the book follows Klaudia Meyer, who later rebrands herself as Eliza Bennet when she discovers the freedom of university. The reason for…

First One Missing by Tammy Cohen

After loving her seasonal thriller, Dying For Christmas, I was very excited when I saw Tammy Cohen’s new novel on NetGalley, First One Missing. Unusually for a crime novel, this book centres on the families of those left behind when a child is murdered. So far, three little girls have been killed and abandoned on Hampstead Heath in what has been dubbed the ‘Kenwood Killings’, with there being few leads to indicate who the killer might be. Each girl is found with the word ‘sorry’ written above their ankle in…

Darkhaven by A. F. E. Smith

When this book’s beautiful cover caught my eye on NetGalley, I knew I had to read it, and I’m glad I picked up Darkhaven by A. F. E. Smith. The book is set (surprisingly enough) in the kingdom of Darkhaven, which is ruled by Florentyn Nightshade, the Overlord. The Nightshade family has ruled the city for centuries, predominantly because of their ability to shift into one of five powerful creatures, and Florentyn is no exception. He is a powerful man who is determined to secure an heir, with his existing…

A Murder of Mages by Marshall Ryan Maresca

I stumbled across A Murder of Mages by Marshall Ryan Maresca on one of my regular trawls through NetGalley and became intrigued by both the cover and description, which is always a good sign. The book is the first in the Maradaine Constabulary series, set in the fictional port city of Maradaine and following the investigative struggles of its police officers. This brings us to our two main characters, Satrine Rainey and Minox Welling, who are put together as partners at the beginning of the book. Satrine is new to…
