So, as you may know I’ve been exploring new genres such as sci-fi and fantasy, as much as I’ve been loving it I do really miss my crime and thrillers! So I thought I would head over to my NetGalley shelf to see what I have left piling up.
I’ve picked 6 to share with you, I will be honest there’s over 20 on my NetGalley shelf so I need to get on top of them.
Black Summer (Washington Poe #2) by M.W. Craven
Publish Date: 20th June 2019
After The Puppet Show, a new storm is coming . . .
Jared Keaton, chef to the stars. Charming. Charismatic. Psychopath . . . He’s currently serving a life sentence for the brutal murder of his daughter, Elizabeth. Her body was never found and Keaton was convicted largely on the testimony of Detective Sergeant Washington Poe.
So when a young woman staggers into a remote police station with irrefutable evidence that she is Elizabeth Keaton, Poe finds himself on the wrong end of an investigation, one that could cost him much more than his career.
Helped by the only person he trusts, the brilliant but socially awkward Tilly Bradshaw, Poe races to answer the only question that matters: how can someone be both dead and alive at the same time?
And then Elizabeth goes missing again – and all paths of investigation lead back to Poe. – Goodreads –
I absolutely loved The Puppet Show which is the first instalment of this series, I did start this, however after the first few chapters I put it down and I just haven’t picked it back up yet.
Gretchen by Shannon Kirk
Publish Date: 23rd July 2019
The new tenants have a terrible secret. So do the landlord and his daughter…
Ever since Lucy was two, she’s been on the run alongside her mother. She’s never understood the reason for a lifetime of paranoia, aliases, and lies. All she understands are the rules: never lock eyes with strangers, never let down your guard, and always be ready to move on.
Finally, after thirteen years and eleven states, their next hideaway seems perfect. An isolated, fortresslike place in the New Hampshire woods is the new home they share with its owner, a gentlemanly pianist, and his lonely daughter, Gretchen. She’s Lucy’s age and soon becomes Lucy’s first real friend.
But Gretchen and her father have secrets of their own—and an obsession with puzzles that draws Lucy into a terrifying new game of hide-and-seek. Lucy’s dark past is about to come calling. And this time, for her and her mother in the house on the hill, it might be too late to run. – Goodreads –
