Redemption Road by Lisa Ballantyne

A novel that mixes past and present to uncover the truth about a woman’s childhood, Redemption Road by Lisa Ballantyne uses a mixture of perspectives to tell this thrilling story. The book begins in the present, with Margaret Holloway being involved in a car crash on the motorway. She is trapped in her car as it begins to smoke, and knows that it is moments away from catching fire with her still inside. Miraculously, she is saved by a grotesque stranger who manages to break her car window and pull…

Summer on Lovers' Island by Donna Alward

To further prepare myself for the summer that lies ahead, I decided to read Summer on Lovers’ Island by Donna Alward, a contemporary romance downloaded from NetGalley. This book is the third in Alward’s Jewell Cove series, but having read neither of the previous instalments I can safely say that this novel works well as a standalone. It opens with the arrival of Lizzie Howard, a big city girl who has temporarily left her high-flying job as an ER doctor to visit her pregnant best friend, Charlie. In truth, she…

Day Shift by Charlaine Harris

After downloading and enjoying the first book in the Midnight, Texas series, I knew I had to get straight onto NetGalley and acquire the next instalment, Day Shift by Charlaine Harris. This time around, the residents of the sleepy Dallas town of Midnight find their lives disturbed by the renovation of an old hotel. The hotel has been in disrepair for years, but now a property company has decided to renovate it and make it open to the public once more. This poses a great risk to the privacy of…

The Long, Hot Summer by Kathleen MacMahon

Provided from NetGalley, The Long, Hot Summer by Kathleen MacMahon describes how the period of one summer can evoke irreversible change on a family. The book is told through the multiple perspectives of the MacEntee family, with each character being given one chapter each, with the exception of the family matriarch, Deirdre, who is given two. It is through Deirdre’s opening chapter that we are introduced to the whole family and their history, from her first meeting her husband, Manus, to the birth of their three children, Alma, Acushla and…

Curtsies and Conspiracies by Gail Carriger

Having read and loved Etiquette and Espionage, I couldn’t help but buy Curtsies and Conspiracies by Gail Carriger, the second in her young adult Finishing School series. We find our heroine, Sophronia Temminick, about to undertake a test at the beginning of this book, which involves a strange machine called an ‘oddgob’. The machine proceeds to test her tea-serving ability, not to mention her choice of weaponry and her skills of surveillance, with the results being delivered before the other pupils. With several of the students told to improve their…

I Let You Go by Claire Mackintosh

A novel about the loss of a young boy and its repercussions for all involved, I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh is a rare gem that manages to shock and surprise you throughout by playing on your own perceptions of the characters. The book opens with a horrific car accident that claims the life of five-year-old Jacob, as a speeding car hits him and then zooms off, leaving his mother weeping over his broken body. Our perspective then shifts to the police officers in charge of the case, Ray…
