First book by Alex North and what a brilliant psychological thriller it has proved to be. The body of a child Neil Spencer is discovered his death bearing an uncanny resemblance to the murder of five children some years ago...but that is impossible as the killer Frank Carter is imprisoned. DI Pete Willis is the policeman in charge but he is haunted by his past failures and his daily struggle with alcoholism...."So drink then. You're worthless . Just do it. The urge was stronger than ever, but he could survive this. After all ,he had resisted the voice in the past"... There is not only a great story line but add to this a touch of the supernatural and characters that jump off the page then we have all the ingredients for a super exciting thriller. Many thanks to the good people of netgalley for a gratis copy in exchange for an honest review and that is what I have written. Highly recommended.
This is such a beautiful book. It is a picture book for children but when I picked it up at the used bookstore I just couldn't put it back down. The artwork is amazing! Whisper from the Woods is short but together with the stunning artwork it tells the story of life in the forest. A small seed drops from a tree and begins to grow. It is nurtured and before long is surrounded by other small trees, it's siblings. They grow as a family, loving and supporting each other until one day there is a storm and the family is changed forever. Life goes on though and the forest continues to grow.
I still can't let this book go. It goes back to my shelf.
Silent Whisper by Andrea Smith is one of those books you want to tell your friends, "OMG! You've got to read this book!!" Ms. Smith has delivered a well-written book that will take you on a ride with twists and turns you'll never expect. Silent Whisper is a romantic suspense with a paranormal twist. This story has so many things happening, you'll want to read faster and faster to find out what happens next. While it's Parrish and Ryan's story, it's also Nick and Karlie's story. It's happy, it's sad. There's plenty of suspense, humor, drama, action and spice to keep the pages turning. I enjoyed every page of Silent Whisper and look forward to reading more from Andrea Smith in the future. Silent Whisper is book 1 of the Limbo Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
I won a copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
This series is my favorite by Barbara Freethy. Of the two books in this series it is the top read, although Perilous Trust is a close second. An excellent story, intrigue, mystery and romance. There are a few hanging questions that hopefully will be answered as the series progresses. Well worth the time spent.
