Liar Liar by M J Arlidge

liarDI Helen Grace are chasing a serial arsonist in this book who has already claimed some lives in six fires during a 24-hour period. There seems to be no connection or common motives between these fires. Helen Grace and her team have to run against time to catch the arsonist before more innocent lives are claimed.

This is the fourth book in the DI Helen Grace series and is as good as the other three. It is a fast-paced thriller with lots of twists and turns with a complete surprise as to who the main culprit was. A compelling read and a great addition to the series.

This is my first book by Cara Putman and it’s a cozy , Christian , legal thriller.It’s not a fast paced book but a slow read about domestic violence which is never easy to read or write.

Every Dark Corner by Karen Rose

every-dark-cornerEvery Dark Corner is the third installment in Karen Rose’s Cincinnati romantic suspense series

FBI agent Decker has just come  out of coma and with agent Kate is desperate to help lives of kids that are in danger. The antagonist is The Professor who sells drugs to kids and also exploits them to make pornographic movies. There are a lot of dead bodies and a whole team racing against time to save the victims.

I would strongly recommend reading this series in order as there are a lot characters from the other books which are all interconnected. The subject matter is dark and difficult to read but Karen Rose does a great job telling the story from different POV’s even the Professors. The romance felt a little rushed even though the book is 600 some pages long. It’s a good romantic suspense novel and I am looking forward to reading the next book about Adam and Meredith in the Cincinnati series .

After the Lie by Kerry Fisher

afterLydia is a happily married woman in her early forties with two seemingly wonderful kids. She runs a flourishing wedding planner business and her husband Mark runs his own business remodeling houses. The only problem Lydia has is her overbearing, judgmental mother and her dog Mabel who even though she tries refuses to be trained. But Lydia’s life is based on a big lie that her husband Mark knows nothing about. When Mark lands up a project with the newly moved McAllister’s Lydia’s lie she built her whole life on may finally be exposed.

I really enjoyed this book and the humorous dialogue Lydia has with herself. It was a very fast, well written entertaining read with well-developed but flawed characters. I highly recommend it and will look forward to reading more by Kerry Fisher.
