The Betrayals - Sarah Ovens,Huw Parmente... The Betrayals - Sarah Ovens,Huw Parmenter,Whole Story Audiobooks,Fiona Neill,David Thorpe,Kate Lock

With thanks to Netgalley and Penguin for this ARC in exchange for an open and honest review.

 

I enjoyed Fiona's last book The Good Girl, I have to admit when I saw The Betrayals I requested it before reading the synopsis.  I am glad to say Fiona did not betray the trust I had in her writing, I loved it.

 

First of all I liked the front cover of this book.  If I saw this in a bookshop it would compel me to pick up the book and read.  Rosie and Lisa have been best friends since school.  Years later Rosie  married Nick a scientist and Lisa married music journalist Barney.  Rosie's daughter Daisy and Lisa's daughter Ava also became best friends.  Both families remained close and Rosie was a shoulder to cry on when Lisa's marriage was failing.

 

When the families go on their annual holiday to Norfolk, Lisa and Nick start an affair.  When Rosie finds out she throws Nick out of their house and the two families become estranged.  After he father left Daisy was diagnosed with crippiling OCD.

 

Seven years later Rosie intercepts a letter from Lisa wanting to see Rosie.  The letter prompts Daisy's OCD to return.  People often make jokes about OCD but the description of Daisy's rituals just to function sounded exhausting.  In this book we find out what happened on the Norfolk holiday through the eyes of Daisy, younger brother Max, Rosie and Nick, but how reliable are their memories?

 

This was a fascinating book, if this family were real they would be guests on Jeremy Kyle.  I look forward to Fiona's next book.

Dead on Ice is the first book that brings Joshua Thornton and his new girlfriend Cameron Gates together. This being that Cameron Gates is on the scene and investing Thorntons cousin home and finds a bomb in the home. Who planted it? Also who planted Cherry Pickens in the freezer in Joshua Thornton cousin Albert home.

 

Joshua goes along with Cameron while she investigates Cherry Pickens and then runs to have to solve Angie's murder. They do quite a few things. Donny gets involved a bit as well. What would all of Cherry Pickens friends want her dead? Cameron Gates has to figure out who and why all would want Angie and Cherry dead?

 

There are twists and turns to the end. Suspects are all over town in Hancock county. Will they find the killer of both Angie and Cherry? You will want to read to find out.


Lauren Carr is one talented writer. She brings you along to find out who the killer is. One thing I love about her mysteries is that you never know who the murderer is? I have read a few of her books already and reviewed a few of them. You are welcome to read my reviews that are part of this audiobook palooza. My reviews are Cancelled Vows, A Fine Year for Murder, Killer in the Band, The Murders at Astaire Castle, Candidate for Murder, 3 Days to Forever, Kill and Run, Old Love Die Hard, 12 To Murder, Open Season for Murder.

Liked it.
A Walk to Remember - Nicholas Sparks

*3.5 STARS*

 

I liked this one.  I liked it more than I liked the movie I think except for one thing.  I felt like the main characters Jamie and Landon had more of a connection in the movie.  I just didn't see that as much in the book.   I did feel more hopeful at the end of the book than I did in the movie, however, I was still bawling my eyes out.
