Summary from Goodreads :

Husband, friend, colleague . . . killer?

Charlie and Emily Swift are the Instagram-perfect couple: gorgeous, successful and in love. But then Charlie is named as the prime suspect in a gruesome murder and Emily’s world falls apart.

Desperate for answers, she turns to Charlie’s troubled best friend, London Herald journalist, Sophie Kent. Sophie knows police have the wrong man – she trusts Charlie with her life.

Then Charlie flees.

Sophie puts her reputation on the line to clear his name. But as she’s drawn deeper into Charlie and Emily’s unravelling marriage, she realises that there is nothing perfect about the Swifts.

As she begins to question Charlie’s innocence, something happens that blows the investigation – and their friendship – apart.

Now Sophie isn’t just fighting for justice, she’s fighting for her life.

My thoughts:

5 out of 5 stars

I won a copy of this book from Readers First.

When I started reading this I didn’t know it was book 2 of a series however I didn’t have any problem reading the story.

As I keep saying the thriller genre is becoming my favourite and this is another book to add to the great ones I’ve read. I loved the main character and I really enjoyed her narration and I found myself getting connected to her character. The story over all was so well written, it was such a good story. I love the fact that I would think I knew where the story was going and that I had figured out the plot but everytime that happened there was a twist and I was left shocked at each twist. The twists were really well written and left myself doubting what was going to happen. I loved this book so much and I am going to read the first book as soon as I can.

I cannot reccomend this highly enough. Go read it guys !!

The Hanging Girl Review

Title – The Hanging Girl

Author – Eileen Cook

Publisher/Published – Hot Key Books / October 2017

Genre – Young Adult, Mystery, Thriller

352 Pages.

My thoughts:

3 out of 5 stars

So after reading the Hanging Girl I have a lot of mixed feelings about it. There were parts I enjoyed more than others, I did like that there were a few twists in the story. However I wasn’t a fan of the main character Skye, I actually found her quite selfish. I really didn’t like Paige or Pluto’s character either. The book started really well and I was interested to see where the plot would go but because I wasn’t keen on the characters it dampened the story. I don’t want to spoil any part of the book for anyone reading this but I must say I was really disappointed by the ending of the book. The book started well, dipped and the was redeeming itself until the end which in my opinion ruined the book for me but that’s just my personal opinion
