Best of 3: Twist In The Tale

twists in the tale

1) Black Wood by SJI Holliday 

Holliday’s depiction of the supposed rural idyll is quite something here. Nothing is *quite* how it seems and the secrets and lies of the characters are complex and convincing. The set up is really well done, with a great payoff. Read my whole review, HERE.

2) Disclaimer by Renee Knight

Okay, confession time: I’m a busy Mum with not much money, so I rarely pay full price for hard copy books as I’m also a Kindle junkie … I know that by the time I get round to reading the book, there will be an offer for the ebook! But Disclaimer was different. The concept was SO compelling I HAD to read it right away. Though it took a little while to get going in my opinion, it’s still one of my favourites of 2016!

3) First One Missing by Tammy Cohen

I won this book online via a BritCrime giveaway and had never heard of Tammy Cohen at the time. I don’t think I’d ever had a hardback book of my own before, so I saved it to take on holiday. I WHIZZED through it! It’s hardgoing at times, even distressing, but the characters are so multi layered and authentic, I couldn’t put it down. I became a Tammy Cohen fan for life and have read a stack of her others too, again unusual for me because I like to read as many different authors as I can. Read my whole review, HERE.
