‘Don’t even think about It’ by Lauren Henderson ⭐️⭐️⭐️
Best chums Sally, Jude, and Michael are living the single life in cool flats a mere stone’s throw apart in London. But the girls find the sitcom life they love taking an unexpected twist when Michael’s new girlfriend, Katie, moves in with him. Michael’s a notorious womanizer — he broke it off with Sally years ago — and the girls have gotten used to
I began 2018 with an easy/chic book, so I did the same again this year. I started off with the above book Don’t even think about it. It’s basically about a couple that have spilt up a little while and are now ‘just good friends’. We know that 8 times out of 10 that never happens, but in this story it happens and then he realises that he is still in love with her and they end up getting back together and he pops the question! It was a good read but I did find it hard at times to carry on reading it, but if you like a romantic chic story then I would say give it a read,
‘The Girlfriend’ by Michelle Frances ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
The Girlfriend by Michelle Frances is a gripping and chilling debut psychological thriller, based on the fall-out following an unforgiveable lie. It looks at the potentially charged relationship between girlfriend, boyfriend and his mother, which most women can identify with, and locates it in an extreme but believable setting.
She loves your son. She wants your life. A girl. A boy. His mother. And the lie she’ll wish she’d never told. Laura has it all. A successful career, a long marriage to a rich husband, and a 23-year-old son, Daniel, who is kind, handsome and talented.
I completed reading the book in 13 days. I found it hard to get into the story at first, but after a few chapters in the story captured me. I enjoyed the story and how the author portrayed the characters. Cherry the girlfriend was very clever, nasty and manipulative and how she acted towards Laura later on in the book, but both were I feel competing for Daniel’s attention at different points of the story. Cherry wants a better life for herself as she is from a poor background compared to Daniel, who is from a wealthy family. Laura is Daniel’s mother and she seems to have this obsessive relationship for her son, but I can understand that a little as it explains that she lost a baby before having him. So I feel that she was being a protective mother towards him and making sure he has a good life possible.
I was a disappointed by the ending, as I thought it may of been a better ending, but it all caught up with one of them in the end. But I would recommend to have a read of this book, as it does capture you in the story.
‘The Sister’ by Louise Jensen ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I read The Sister in 7 days, this is the 2nd book I’ve read of Louise Jensen’s and I enjoyed this book, the book is a dark thriller full of twists, turns and some tense moments. It was a page turner for me and I liked how she linked some of the characters together in the story. This was a great debut Novel for Louise Jensen.

Third book read by Louise Jensen in 11 days. I liked the sound of the Blurb, is that the right word? Anyway back to the review, I was excited to get started with this book as I thought it would be as good as the other two books I have read of Louise’s. I did enjoy this book and how it clicked from the present date to the past was good, also how they are all linked from there pasts. Was also good with a few twists and turns in the book, when I was reading this book, I was at times not wanting to put it down as I was getting in to the story, so I would recommend this to read.
Louise has written 4 books, I didn’t realise what order they were in so I read The Gift first then The Sister, while writing this I’m currently reading The Surrogate. I’m just on the look out now for The Date!
All of her books are good thrillers! So get reading these books
‘Dear Amy’ by Helen Callaghan ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Margot Lewis is the agony aunt for The Cambridge Examiner. Her advice column, Dear Amy, gets all kinds of letters – but none like the one she’s just received:
Dear Amy, I don’t know where I am. I’ve been kidnapped and am being held prisoner by a strange man. I’m afraid he’ll kill me. Please help me soon. Bethan Avery
Bethan Avery has been missing for years. This is surely some cruel hoax. But, as more letters arrive, they contain information that was never made public. How is this happening? Answering this question will cost Margot everything . .
I started this booking on 18th Feb. Currently Reading. Review to follow…
