Review: I Am Watching You by Teresa Driscoll
I Am Watching You - Teresa O'Driscoll

Rating: 5*

 

Synopsis: 

When Ella Longfield overhears two attractive young men flirting with teenage girls on a train, she thinks nothing of it—until she realises they are fresh out of prison and her maternal instinct is put on high alert. But just as she’s decided to call for help, something stops her. The next day, she wakes up to the news that one of the girls—beautiful, green-eyed Anna Ballard—has disappeared.

 

A year later, Anna is still missing. Ella is wracked with guilt over what she failed to do, and she’s not the only one who can’t forget. Someone is sending her threatening letters—letters that make her fear for her life.

 

Then an anniversary appeal reveals that Anna’s friends and family might have something to hide. Anna’s best friend, Sarah, hasn’t been telling the whole truth about what really happened that night—and her parents have been keeping secrets of their own.

Someone knows where Anna is—and they’re not telling. But they are watching Ella.

 

Review:

Oh WOW! It's almost 4.30 in the morning and I've just finished reading I Am Watching You.  I've got no idea where the last few hours have gone - I've been utterly engrossed. Gripped. I'm in shock. What an ending! Teresa Driscoll you are a sorceress! 

 

Each character in this book is so integral in their own way, and they are all so brilliantly written. I could waffle on for ages about each of them, but that would make such a long (and boring) review...I'll just mention that I adore Ella, she's so beautifully written.

 

I really like how the story unfolds throughout the book, and how we learn more about each of the character's involvement. There are some real surprises along the way, the story is intelligently written and you just have to keep turning the pages to find out what happens next.

 

Hands down, I Am Watching You  is the best book I've read so far this year. It's utterly compelling. I urge all my fellow crime fans to read it!  Special thanks to Teresa Driscoll for providing the review copy.

Review: Only the Brave (DS Allie Shenton #3) by Mel Sherratt
Only The Brave (A DS Allie Shenton Novel) - Mel Sherratt

Publication Date: 26th May 2015

 

Publisher:  Thomas & Mercer

 

ISBN: 978-1477830628

Rating: 5*

 

Synopsis: 

When one of the notorious Johnson brothers is murdered and a bag of money goes missing, a deadly game of cat and mouse is set in motion.

DS Allie Shenton and her team are called in to catch the killer, but the suspects are double-crossing each other and Allie has little time to untangle the web of lies.

As she delves deeper into the case, things take a personal turn when Allie realises she is being stalked by the very same person who attacked her sister seventeen years ago and left her for dead.

Set over forty-eight tension-filled hours, Only the Brave is the latest gut-churning book from acclaimed author Mel Sherratt.

 

My Review:

I'm beginning to fall in love with DS Allie Shenton. She's such a complex and intelligently written character, it's impossible not to adore her. Gutsy, with such innate skills of detection, Allie attacks her latest case with gusto. 

 

The cleverly interwoven plot with Allie's stalker is chilling. I could hardly turn the pages fast enough as I devoured this brilliantly compelling novel. I found it utterly enthralling, unputdownable.

 

If you're looking for a police procedural with a difference, you need to discover Allie Shenton!

 

*I received a free copy ,via NetGalley, in return for my honest opinion, for which I'd like to thank the publishing team*
