Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng. Review

When I started this book I was optimistic that I was going to enjoy the story , the blurb had me instantly interested and I was keen to see what all the fuss was about as I had seen this book pop up on so many of my news feeds . This book did not disappoint . The story sets off in the present tense and as the story goes on we get to see parts of the characters past , and juicy it is ! These characters , especially the females are fascinating to read about , their highs and lows make for this book to be very hard to put down so I didn’t and instead read it in one go . My favorite characters were Mia for her strength and gumption , Izzy for her independence and strong will and Pearl for her loyalty and compassion. The story was rich with details and we see the the good and bad sides of the human nature , the weaknesses and what determination can do in the right and wrong hands . If you are looking for a book to completely immerse yourself in then look no further then this one , it’s a rare gem .

Scone Cold Dead by Karen MacInerney . Review

It was terrific being back again reading about the beautiful Cranberry Island and the fabulous Natalie and the folks in the Grey Whale Inn. It’s summertime on the island and they are fortunate enough to have an enthusiastic art teacher giving classes to the Cranberry Island masses and it’s not the only thing turning heads as there has been some devilment going on on the island too with someone damaging boats of the locals ... The island locals become even more uneasy when a body of a young woman turns up !

I loved this story and all the twists and turns to find out what sneaky business was going on on the island and who is to blame . This was a fun read and I loved every page . I read this in one sitting , it’s a brilliant addition to this series . More please! 

I received this book in exchange for an honest review .

This book is being published June 30th and will be available from all good bookstores then. Below please find all the links .
