Book Review: Killman Creek by Rachel Caine (Stillhouse Lake #2)

Killman Creek - Rachel Caine

Killman Creek follows Stillhouse Lake in Rachel Caine’s Stillhouse Lake series. If you haven’t yet read Stillhouse Lake, I’d advise you to avoid all reviews of Killman Creek, and the synopsis too, if possible, because you’re likely to stumble on spoilers, not through any fault of the reviewers, but this is a direct continuation of the plot and as such, the surprise reveals from book one are “the norm” in book two.

Book Description:

Every time Gwen closed her eyes, she saw him in her nightmares. Now her eyes are open, and he’s not going away.

Gwen Proctor won the battle to save her kids from her ex-husband, serial killer Melvin Royal, and his league of psychotic accomplices. But the war isn’t over. Not since Melvin broke out of prison. Not since she received a chilling text…

You’re not safe anywhere now.

Her refuge at Stillhouse Lake has become a trap. Gwen leaves her children in the protective custody of a fortified, well-armed neighbor. Now, with the help of Sam Cade, brother of one of Melvin’s victims, Gwen is going hunting. She’s learned how from one of the sickest killers alive.

But what she’s up against is beyond anything she feared—a sophisticated and savage mind game calculated to destroy her. As trust beyond her small circle of friends begins to vanish, Gwen has only fury and vengeance to believe in as she closes in on her prey. And sure as the night, one of them will die.

Blog Tour | Book Review: Deep Blue Trouble by Steph Broadribb


Welcome to my stop on the Deep Blue Trouble blog tour; I’m excited to be sharing my review with you today. This high-octane thriller is book two in the Lori Anderson series, it follows Deep Down Dead.

Book Description:

Single-mother Florida bounty hunter Lori Anderson’s got an ocean of trouble on her hands. Her daughter Dakota is safe, but her cancer is threatening a comeback, and Lori needs JT – Dakota’s daddy and the man who taught Lori everything – alive and kicking.

Problem is, he’s behind bars, and heading for death row.

Desperate to save him, Lori does a deal, taking on off-the-books job from shady FBI agent Alex Monroe. Bring back on-the-run felon, Gibson ‘The Fish’ Fletcher, and JT walks free. Following Fletcher from Florida to California, Lori teams up with local bounty hunter Dez McGregor and his team. But Dez works very differently to Lori, and the tension between them threatens to put the whole job in danger.

With Monroe pressuring Lori for results, the clock ticking on JT’s life, and nothing about the Fletcher case adding up, Lori’s hitting walls at every turn. But this is one job she’s got to get right, or she’ll lose everything…

Breathlessly paced, and bursting with high-voltage action and edge-of-your-seat jeopardy, Deep Blue Trouble is the unmissable next instalment featuring one of the most memorable and fearless female characters in crime fiction.

Blog Tour | Book Review: Hydra by Matt Wesolowski #SixStories #Hydra


“A family massacre. A deluded murderess. Five witnesses. Six Stories. Which one is true?”

Welcome to my stop on the Hydra blog tour, I’ve been [not so] patiently waiting to share my review of this brilliant book with you. Before we even get to the book description and my review, you may as well know, you need this book in your life! Could it be possible, that in the first month of this year, we’ve already found the best book of 2018!?!

Book Description:

One cold November night in 2014, in a small town in the northwest of England, 21-year-old Arla Macleod bludgeoned her mother, stepfather and younger sister to death with a hammer, in an unprovoked attack known as the Macleod Massacre. Now incarcerated at a medium-security mental-health institution, Arla will speak to no one but Scott King, an investigative journalist, whose Six Stories podcasts have become an internet sensation.

King finds himself immersed in an increasingly complex case, interviewing five key witnesses and Arla herself, as he questions whether Arla’s responsibility for the massacre was as diminished as her legal team made out. As he unpicks the stories, he finds himself thrust into a world of deadly forbidden ‘games’, online trolls, and the mysterious black-eyed kids, whose presence seems to extend far beyond the delusions of a murderess… Dark, chilling and gripping, Hydra is both a classic murder mystery and an up-to-the-minute, startling thriller that shines light in places you may never, ever want to see again.
