#BookReview Keeper (Roy & Castells #2) by Johana Gustawsson (Maxim Jakubowski, Translator) #Keeper @JoGustawsson @OrendaBooks


38586370Whitechapel, 1888: London is bowed under Jack the Ripper’s reign of terror. London, 2015: actress Julianne Bell is abducted in a case similar to the terrible Tower Hamlets murders of some ten years earlier, and harking back to the Ripper killings of a century before. Falkenberg, Sweden, 2015: a woman’s body is found mutilated in a forest, her wounds identical to those of the Tower Hamlets victims. With the man arrested for the Tower Hamlets crimes already locked up, do the new killings mean he has a dangerous accomplice, or is a copy-cat serial killer on the loose? Profiler Emily Roy and true-crime writer Alexis Castells again find themselves drawn into an intriguing case, with personal links that turn their world upside down.

David Ahern grew up in a theatrical family in Ireland but ran away to Scotland to become a research psychologist and sensible person. He earned his doctorate but soon absconded to work in television. He became a writer, director and producer, creating international documentary series and winning numerous awards, none of which got him free into nightclubs.

David Ahern lives in the beautiful West of Ireland with his wife, two cats and a vegetable garden of which he is inordinately proud. He is now writing more Madam Tulip adventures and enjoys pretending this is actual work.

The Woman in Black, a review of the past


The Woman in Black

20180219_011758[1]The Woman in Black is known for it’s terror and at the time ground-breaking ideas. For me, this book was one that changed the game of ghost stories. I have read a few but none have ever left me in so much suspense whilst reading and terror after finishing. The book starts off in a present day where the character of Arthur Kipps is talking about his life and how the past has changed him. At this time, we do not know quite what has caused some of the fear he holds and references whilst talking. However, we do know that, as the title suggests, it is around a woman dressed all in black.

In the following chapter, Arthur is talking about the past events starting at the beginning of the cause of the terror he still faces in the present. He begins talking about London…

Evil in lacy gloves – Book review for NetGalley – The Life She Was Given by Ellie Marie Wiseman

Snow Queen SVT

32926258 The Life She Was Given 

From acclaimed author Ellen Marie Wiseman comes a vivid, daring novel about the devastating power of family secrets–beginning in the poignant, lurid world of a Depression-era traveling circus and coming full circle in the transformative 1950s.

On a summer evening in 1931, Lilly Blackwood glimpses circus lights from the grimy window of her attic bedroom. Lilly isn’t allowed to explore the meadows around Blackwood Manor. She’s never even ventured beyond her narrow room. Momma insists it’s for Lilly’s own protection, that people would be afraid if they saw her. But on this unforgettable night, Lilly is taken outside for the first time–and sold to the circus sideshow.

More than two decades later, nineteen-year-old Julia Blackwood has inherited her parents’ estate and horse farm. For Julia, home was an unhappy place full of strict rules and forbidden rooms, and she hopes that returning might erase those…

The Chalk Man by C.J. Tudor (Spoiler-free) Review

In 1986, Eddie and his friends are just kids on the verge of adolescence. They spend their days biking around their sleepy English village and looking for any taste of excitement they can get. The chalk men are their secret code: little chalk stick figures they leave for one another as messages only they can understand. But then a mysterious chalk man leads them right to a dismembered body, and nothing is ever the same.

In 2016, Eddie is fully grown and thinks he’s put his past behind him, but then he gets a letter in the mail containing a single chalk stick figure. When it turns out that his friends got the same message, they think it could be a prank–until one of them turns up dead. That’s when Eddie realizes that saving himself means finally figuring out what really happened all those years ago.

Book Review: The One

She Who Probably Does Exist

(Book Three of The Selection Series) by Kiera Cass

Processed with VSCOcam

Finally! We’ve got to know what will happen to our lead characters, America, Maxon and Aspen. After reading the first two books, I’ve got quite an idea what will happen to the story but surprisingly, Miss Kiera make a plot twist that shocked its readers.

Surely, the pure white-colored dress of America in the book cover will give us a hint that there will be a ceremony in the end. Kyaaaah!!! ♥

Here’s what I thought about “The One”:

After all the struggles she has been through, between her and the girls, between her and her maybe future father-in-law, between her and Aspen, between her and Prince Maxon. There she is, our future princess standing stronger than ever. After one of her love ones dies, (Yeah! Sad to say thou) she felt so broken (me too) but then now, she definitely know how…
