Motive X by Stefan Ahnhem. Review / Blog Tour

The story is primarily set in Sweden and is centered around a police team and the murderers they are trying to find . The team are being swamped with unusual deaths and murders , each one very different from the previous but equally as shocking and grim . The story is very fast paced so you need to have your wits about you to keep up , but if you like a fast paced read with attention to detail you will love this . The crimes are grisly and the murderer is terrifying , he definitely plays by his own sick rules of which there appears to be plenty , it’s a gruesome game he plays . The plot is often chilling and I got goosebumps while reading through parts , the building of tension was excellent and so I tore through the book in one go eager to see if the wrongdoer would be captured . I would recommend this to all fictional crime fans . 

Motive X – Stefan Ahnhem


About The Book


He strikes at random. His motive unknown. No one is safe...


Helsingborg police must solve the unsolveable. A wave of apparently random homicides is sweeping through their idyllic seaside town. The murders have no pattern, no order, no reason. The perpetrator is immune to psychological profiling; forensically untraceable; utterly invulnerable to modern police techniques.


The body count is growing. But lead investigator Fabian Risk is distracted by his mission to expose a corrupt colleague, and his boss Astrid is spiralling back into addiction. As the hunt for the solution becoming ever more desperate, their tight-knit team begins to unravel...


Motive X is both an explosive, multi-layered thriller and a fearless exploration of the darkest side of human nature. To enter Stefan Ahnhem’s world, with its interwoven plotlines and sprawling cast of characters, is to put yourself in the hands of a master storyteller.

The Girl I Used To Know by Faith Hogan . Review

I have to say I loved this book from the very first chapter when we met Tess one of the two main characters in the story . Tess lives downstairs and Amanda lives upstairs , both women could not have more different lives . Tess is a temp and not too far off retirement , she lives a modest life and for the most part she is happy with her lot , if a little lonely .

Her upstairs neighbors are Amanda , her husband Richard and their two children , they are wealthy and Amanda does not work , their children are teenagers and Amanda’s life consists of lunches with the girls , committee meetings and so on .

Both women are interesting , both women have quite a lot on common even if they are not completely aware of it . Amanda’s marriage is on rocky ground and Tess is finding her health is starting to decline , both women have work to do and have almost no support until they realize they have each other . I truly loved Tess and Amanda’s relationship , how they had to go back to their roots deep inside themselves to find their true selves again , the ones that life erased slowly , finding that strength they started of in life having and build from that again . Truly heartwarming and soul restoring . Put your feet up , the kettle on , and enjoy every page .

The Girl I Used To Know – Faith Hogan


About The Book


Amanda King and Tess Cuffe are strangers who share the same Georgian house, but their lives couldn’t be more different. Amanda seems to have it all, absolute perfection.


She projects all the accoutrements of a lady who lunches. Sadly, the reality is a soulless home, an unfaithful husband and a very lonely heart.


By comparison, in the basement flat, unwanted tenant Tess has spent a lifetime hiding and shutting her heart to love.


It takes a bossy doctor, a handsome gardener, a pushy teenager and an abandoned cat to show these two women that sometimes letting go is the first step to moving forward and new friendships can come from the most unlikely situations.



About The Author


Faith lives in the west of Ireland with her husband, four children and two very fussy cats. She has an Hons Degree in English Literature and Psychology, has worked as a fashion model and in the intellectual disability and mental health sector.

The Family by P R Black . Review .

This is probably one of the most frightening books I ever read and it’s safe to say if you love a thriller with the most evil bad guys then look no further then this. The story begins with a gripping opening chapter that is truly unnerving and quickly becomes even more unnerving the more we learn about the main character , her past , and her life now . Few books can carry off a frightening plot for the full duration of a book but this author did it for real . We get glimpses of Becky’s past and there is plenty of descriptions of the crimes in the book and they are not for the faint of heart , the author takes the reader on a terrifying rollercoaster of emotions where every chapter unleashes new horrors and the main characters strength is put to the test . This is a book that you won’t forget . 

I received this book for review from the lovely people over at Netgalley and Aria Fiction .

Postscript by Cecilia Ahern . Review

This is the terrific sequel to P. S I Love You where we originally met Holly and Gerry , now in this sequel we are back in Holly’s world again . It’s six years since the death of her beloved husband and life is going well for Holly , she is working , surrounded by people who love her and is now in a relationship with Gabriel , a sweet man with a heart of gold . When one day a woman mentions to Holly about a club she is in called the  “P.S I Love You Club “it sets in motion another path for Holly , but one that she is very reluctant to go on . 

Well if you thought you could sob no more while reading P.S I Love You then get the tissues out in good time as this sequel was both heartwarming and more then a bit of a tear jerker . I loved these characters so much and the plot was so moving I got a lump in my throat many times while reading it . A beautiful and memorable story that you will think of again and again .

Craven House by Darcy Coates . Review

This is my first time reading anything by this author and I was very impressed by the writing . In this book we meet Daniel , he is poor , a hard worker , a decent human being and all round good guy , you are rooting for him from the start , unfortunately he lives with his creep of a cousin who upon closer inspection is just as much of an idiot as I first thought if not more so . 

When he gets a mysterious letter from a stranger after a spat of hard luck it could be just what he needs to make a fresh start and he wisely takes that opportunity.

The setting for the story is Craven Manor and it’s surrounding land , the place is deeply unnerving as it has not had a resident living there or taking care of its grounds in many years . The manor itself is an imposing building and the grounds are largely overrun and in need of some serious hard work and Daniel is the person requested for the job . 

I loved the mystery of this haunted place , who was his employer , why was his conditions of employment so rigid  , this all added lovey layers of unease and tension especially in the parts of the plot that took place at night there . If you enjoy. Good mystery then I would recommend this without a doubt.

The main character of the series is Maddie Kosloski , she is the owner of this unusual museum where this book centers around .

Forget My Name by J.S Monroe . Review

This is one of those books that grab your attention at the very start , and because the plot is so good it becomes a “read in one go “ book . When a young woman gets off a plane , has lost her memory but shows up at a house in a small village exclaiming to be familiar with the house , the inhabitants quickly become alarmed and concerned , for the young woman and for their own safety . Throughout the reading of this I was constantly questioning the honesty of some of the characters , there was red herrings a plenty and as the characters and their history were so interesting it was an absolute joy to read . If you love a book that has you questioning almost everything then this is the perfect book for your inquisitive nature . 

I received this book from the lovely people over at Netgalley & Head Of Zeus in exchange for a review .

The story set in Brighton centers around three young women , Thea , Daisy and Anna ,they come from very different families , each one having their own troubles when they happen to meet each other . Anna is pregnant and has left home and is in the midst of grief , Daisy is feeling a bit lost in life and Thea is left with a horrific shock after the death of a loved one . These three women become an unlikely trio , each one helping the other at their time of need and finding strength in numbers . I loved each of the ladies character stories , they were brave during adversity and I kept interested in the plot throughout so reading the book went super fast . 

This was a heartwarming story with plenty of bad guys , inspiring women , and a very satisfying ending .  Go read this , it’s terrific . More please ! 

I received this book in exchange for review from the lovely people over at Netgalley and aria fiction . 

 About the book

 A saga of immense charm and warmth, with three characters you won't forget. Thea, Anna and Daisy forge an unbreakable friendship through adversity.

Thea's loathsome stepbrother is trying to trick her out of her inheritance of her parents' beautiful house in the seaside town of Brighton by means of a Will which Thea believes to be forged. He gives her three months in which to leave. Afterwards she will face destitution.

Anna is pregnant and grieving, her explorer fiancĂ© lost at sea. Her violent father drives her from the family home in the back streets of London's Bermondsey and her fiancĂ©'s upper-class relatives cruelly reject her.

Daisy is in search of independence, running from a man she doesn't want to marry.

Together the three girls set up Thea's home as a guest house and embark on a mission to outwit her stepbrother by proving his fraud. In a race against time, nothing will turn out to be quite as it seems.
