Book Review: Emma in the Night by Wendy Walker

Emma in the Night - Wendy Walker

First I saw some glowing reviews, then some not so glowing reviews, either way this book caught my attention and I had to find out for myself, what happened to Emma.

Book Description:

Two sisters vanish.
Only one comes back.

We believe what we want to believe. We believe what we need to believe.

When my sister and I disappeared three years ago, they found Emma’s car at the beach. Some people believed she had gone there to find a party or meet a friend who never showed. They believed that she’d gone for a swim. They believed that she’d drowned. Maybe by accident. Maybe a suicide.

Everyone believed Emma was dead.

As for me, well – it was not as simple as that. Continue reading “Book Review: Emma in the Night by Wendy Walker”

Marked for Revenge follows Marked for Life in the Jana Berzelius trilogy.

Book Description:

When a girl overdoses smuggling drugs across the Swedish border, the trail points to the one man Jana Berzelius most wants to destroy.

Book Review: Marked for Life by Emelie Schepp (Jana Berzelius #1)

Marked for Life - Emelie Schepp

I added this book to my wish list a year ago so I’m delighted to finally have “visited” Sweden to see what public prosecutor Jana Berzelius has been up to…

Book Description:

In Lindö, on the Swedish coast, a man has been found brutally murdered in his own home.

The victim, Hans Juhlén, had no shortage of enemies. But the case stalls when a child’s handprint is found inches from where the dead man fell.

Hans Juhlén had no children.

Public prosecutor Jana Berzelius has perfected the art of maintaining a professional distance from her cases. But when the body of a small boy is found – and with him, the weapon that killed Juhlén – Jana’s impenetrability is tested to its limits.

The small body is a bleak reminder that Jana has her own secrets to hide. And if she is to keep them safe, she must find the perpetrator behind these crimes…before the police do. Continue reading “Book Review: Marked for Life by Emelie Schepp (Jana Berzelius #1)”
