Who is the Liar

This is a good book about a mother and the lengths she will go to, to keep her boys close, there is so many levels to this story, is she just a menopausal women trying to keep her emotions under control when her son brings home a new girlfriend or is she an obsessive over bearing mother with deep secrets, at times you feel sorry for this women, whom it seems everyone is against but her tenasatie to bounce back and determination to take care of her boys is impressive. But is she just a bit to possessive?
This book kept me awake at night wanting to read more and when I did try to sleep I couldn't for thinking about it. Well worth the read and great narration I throughly recommend this book.

Two wives 1 Man

Yep I really enjoyed this book, telling the story of a close family with secrets, the charetors were well developed and the story was good and easy to listen too, I also took this book on a long car journey which I think these type of books suite really well, they are interesting and you want to know the outcome so the longer the trip the better.

A wizard who is also a detective?????

A Wizard who is also a detective what a wonderful idea, I didn't know there was a TV series so I come to this book fresh with no expectations, and so, therefore, had a wonderful rollercoaster of fun, I loved this book, I'm really NOT into fantasy, but this book is different, I loved the tongue in cheek humour, This was a book that kept me awake at night wanting to listen more, and you don't get what you expect to happen you get more with icing on top,

I loved the characters who were so vivid and interesting and Dresden, a maverick of the wizard world who gets blamed for everything and has to prove his innocence whilst fighting off demons and oversized insects,

The narrator James Marsters did a superb job, he has the character of Dresden down to a fine art. and I'm looking forward to reading the next book in this series.

The Lake People

Anna is a orphan never knowing who her parents are, but there's a voice in her head communicating with her. She feels drawn to this whistling man and she has visions of a beautiful lake with black water.

Whilst hitchhiking she gets a lift with a truck driver who turns out to be a serial killer. Her whistling man rescues her and takes her home to his family and community which set on the same lake which she has dreamed about for most of her life.

The lake people have the ability to communicate by thoughts alone, like all towns some of the people are good and some are bad, very bad

Anna searches for the truth in the salt mines and finds a hidden secret, worse then the serial killer............

At first I wasn't sure about the narrator of this book as she has such a strong deep south accent, but I got to the stage where I could still hear the book echo in my mind when I wasn't reading it, so I think it drew me back to the book for more.

A real page turner

This was a really well written book about a girl who wakes up to find her parents and brother have disappeared without a trace, 20 years latter she is still trying to figure what happened everyone thinks they have died but the truth is more sinister then that.
I couldn't put this book down it was gripping and you sort of guessed what had happened but it didn't distract from the suspense and there is s really nasty old lady who is a character you really don't like!! The narration was excellent and a really good listen I throughly recommend this book well worth the credit.

Another great read from Rachel Abbott

After reading some of the reviews a comment about the way the story was written and s comment about the narrators female accent, I nearly didn't get this book but I knew Rachel Abbott was a good writer and I decided to give it a go and I'm so glad I did, this is a really good book and a really interesting subject I couldn't put it down once I started to read it, I truly enjoyed this book and I am very surprised at the negative comments,

Great Short Story

From the 1st chapter you always know what John Nicholl's books are about, he doesn't hold back on the punches or try to lead you gently to a subject thats best not discussed,
He is hard hitting and fast paced, you get to know the characters so well you feel like you are living their story, which makes the terror they are experiencing even harder to read.
Bully Boy Blue is about an abusive husband and a wife who falls pregnant and knows for the sake of her child she has to leave him.
My only criticism is I wish this book was longer I could listen to Jake Urry narrate John Nicoll's books till the cows come home, always such a great partnership.

I throughly recommend this book it was a good story.

No child is safe in Melington,

I really enjoyed this book but I found it more of a suspense thriller then a horror book, the book returns to the deeds of the past interlocking the towns past history with present day abductions of children,

It was a good read and as usual Jake Urey narrative was excellent
