When Meredith was young about four years old, her mother
Becca disappeared from her life. Now years later,
Meredith's father has just sold their house,
and she is busy cleaning out the attic and comes across a box of her baby
clothes. In the box, is an old video
cassette titled Meredith - July 1990 written in her mother's writing. Meredith
curious asks her father about the tape thinking it is a home video and is
stonewalled by her father. Meredith has the video converted to DVD as we
no longer live in a world of VCR's and is
shocked to see the content on the tape. Meredith and Becca are talking
about a murder that has occurred. Meredith takes the video to her ex who works as a Detective and soon
discovers that the murder on the tape happened over thirty years ago before
Meredith was even born. The book then jumps back to the year 1984 where
we meet Cara and her best friend,Isobel. The pair is actresses and has dreams
to start their co-operative theatre company. During this time , Cara meets
Christopher Jay aka Jay and the pair start dating secretly. Then Cara is killed
and the case falls apart during the trial. In 1984 - Cara's murder case is
still opened, the main suspect Jay was acquitted and the witness Becca vanished
never to be seen again. What happened all those years ago and what does it have
to do with Meredith and her mother Becca ? I enjoyed Lie to Me and had
suspicions of what had happened throughout the novel , the only thing I didn't
like was the epilogue as I love reunions and hoped for a better ending. Besides
that , if you are in the mood for a murder mystery then check out Lie to Me by
Jess Ryder coming out in April 2017.
I've always followed my dreams with ruthless determination.
My life was going well. Success was at my fingertips.
Until it wasn't.
All it took was three seconds to send my world crashing down around me, ripping my dreams to shreds.
Then I meet her, with her large hazel eyes that slay me at first glance.
And everything starts to make sense again.
I try to keep my distance.
To remind myself I am her mentor.
That we can't be more,
but every time I push away, I'm pulled deeper into her.
The line between student and teacher is blurring.
They’re all it would take to cross the line.
Autumn Grey is the author of Havoc, Obliterate, Mend (Havoc series) and Fall Back Skyward. And just like her characters, she is quirky, sometimes funny and definitely flawed. She writes sexy contemporary romances full of drama, steamy kisses and happy ever afters.
I have been getting back into reading my thrillers and
mystery novels, and I also like the
author Avery Aster, so when I saw that she had a new one out, I wanted to read it. I loved this book so much, and if you are a fan of psychologicalthrillers,
then this is a book that you will love. The book starts off with a woman trapped in a basement. At first, I thought that the husband had done
something and was trying to get rid of her and that she was seriously cray-cray. The book then jumps back to an
innocent dinner party, and Piper Adler
wakes up in a mental ward. She knows this isn't right as she normally treats
them and she isn't suicidal so why does everyone think she tried to kill herself? As the evidence starts to stack up, Piper finds herself going out of her mind
and more so when everything seems to point to her being crazy and paranoid. Is
someone trying to ruin Piper's life or has Piper after all these years of
treating patients with mental illnesses snapped herself?
I did admit I didn't see the ending coming until about 1-2 chapters before the
book finished and once I did discover who the mastermind behind everything was
- it did make total sense. If you only read one psychological thriller for 2017 - then make The Paper Year by Avery
Aster that one book.
Review: Veiled - Book #3.5 Bone Secrets Series - Kendra Elliot - December 2013
I seem to have got back onto a mystery kick,
and I love it. It's funny as it's not
till you start reading a particular genre that you haven't in a while that you
discover how much you love it. I was in
the mood for a Kendra Elliot, so picked one of her short stories which I have
had sitting on my Kindle for again years.
The other thing that I love about this book is the cover. All of Kendra
Elliot's Bone Secrets have similar covers which appeal to me. In Veiled, Jack and Lacey are ready to tie the knot finally and are currently
scoping out potential marriage/honeymoon spots. The pair also finally have
vacation time and head to a current popular spot. While there, though, a dead body turns up in the outside hot-tub and
she's wearing a wedding dress. One thing leads to another and due to Jack and
Lacey's expertise and the fact that this small town doesn't usually get a lot of dead bodies and now they are piling up
will add their skills to the mix. What will happen though when the pair start
to get close to the killer and the killer panics?
Lacey who has had so many brushes with death,
is she on her last leg as the killer
needs another victim and it seems Lacey is his perfect victim?
Find out in this quick murder mystery read by Kendra
Elliot. One that will have you hooked from the first page and if you have not
yet discovered this author and love your crime novels, then after reading Veiled, it will make you go and purchase her
Review: Next to You - Book #1 Love with Altitude Series - Daisy Prescott - July 2016
Sage and Stan love
living in Aspen and have made the best of being next door neighbors, they are good friends and there for
one another. The other thing that they don't have to worry is their feelings
for one another. To deter the others from getting with Sage, Stan put her
on the no-touch list that the rugby players abide with as these are the females
off limits and Stan's not the type to settle down with just one girl anyway. What will happen though when Stan finds himself
injured after a skiing incident and Sage is right there to help him. One
thing leads to another, and the pair ends up in a 'fake relationship". Of course, you can guess what happens along the way; the pair starts
developing real feelings for one another - SHOCKER. (insert sarcasm) . I didn't
mind this as I do love friends to lover type stories and roommate romances and
since they were next door neighbors, it
classified in the proximity as a roommate romance. The other thing I loved was
that Daisy Prescott played on my love of Comics and everything Superhero with
Stan's nickname being Stan Lee. The other
thing I loved was the banter between Sage's family;
it made me laugh. If you want a
new adult sports romance with comedy chucked in between the pages, then check out the first book in her
Love with Altitude series "Next to You" as you will find yourself
shipping Stan and Sage.
