REVIEW: Blue Blood by Sara Blaedel

Blue Blood by Sara Blaedel

I am sure that Sara Blaedel is about to become one of my favourite authors upon the completion of Blue Blood, the second entry to the Louise Rick series. Despite not having read the first book, as with most crime series this was not a prerequisite and the plot was easy to follow with few references to previous events. The book opens with the first victim, Susanne Hansson, inviting a man back to her apartment after a successful first date. They share a drink and move to the bedroom, where…

A Conspiracy of Alchemists by Liesel Schwarz

A Conspiracy of Alchemists by Liesel Schwarz marks the first in a new steampunk series that takes place across the world, as the characters travel across Europe with ingenious inventions in tow. The book opens with protagonist Elle Chance entering a bar in Paris to meet with her old associate Patrice, who often provides her with jobs transporting cargo. This time, he hands her a mysterious box that is seemingly impossible to open and refuses to tell her what is inside. As payment, he bestows her with a diamond bracelet…

Disclaimer by Renée Knight

A book that is already building up a fair degree of hype, Disclaimer by Renée Knight begs the question of what if someone were to publish a book telling your most revealing secret. Catherine Ravenscroft has recently moved house with her husband, Robert, downsizing after their twenty-five-year-old son, Nicholas, had moved out to gain his independence. In the ensuing chaos of unpacking boxes, a book titled ‘The Perfect Stranger’ has mysteriously appeared upon Charlotte’s bedside table. She has no memory of buying the book, and neither does her husband, but…

The Last Honeytrap by Louise Lee

A book that focuses on the entrapment of men and the ability to see whether they would stray, The Last Honeytrap by Louise Lee is certainly a different kind of read. The book opens with a look at protagonist Florence Love’s job as a private investigator, as she focuses her attentions on a foreign diplomat. However, we soon learn that although she calls herself a private investigator, she is in fact an ‘entrapment specialist’, whereby worried wives and girlfriends will contact Flo and ask her to seduce their men, hoping…

Midnight Crossroad

Surprisingly, I have never read anything by Charlaine Harris before, so I was keen to read the first in her new series, Midnight Crossroad. The series is about the sleepy little town of Midnight, Texas, the kind of place where you might stop to refuel, but not really pay any attention to. There is little passing trade, and the residents all seem to have their own reasons for moving in to such a place. As such, the first chapter takes us on a whistle-stop tour of the town, introducing us…

Dark Vision by Debbie Johnson

A new urban fantasy novel with hints of new adult, Dark Vision by Debbie Johnson takes one girl’s life and turns it completely upside down. Lily McCain has never been ordinary, as she has a strange paranormal gift that allows her to see someone’s future when they come into skin-to-skin contact. The visions she sees are rarely pleasant and are most often about death, as she sees people dying of cancer or in accidents that she can’t prevent. As a result, she has isolated herself from the world and resorts…
