Elizabeth is Missing
The Mystery of Mercy Close and Anybody Out There by Marian Keyes

Possibly Her and look out for Disclaimer (which is out today I think)

I've been recommended The Kind Worth Killing by Peter Swanson...only just started it but think it has promise and it gets good reviews.

thanks smile I looked at Elizabeth is missing, it looks like a really good story but i don't think i could read it as my father had alzheimers so it would be too close to home for me.

Will have a look at the others.

Despite myself i downloaded the second cormoran strike book, despite wanting to jump on my kindle after reading the last one, its easy to read and at the moment thats what im looking for.

I hated Elizabeth is missing.

I just finished The Ice Twins which parts I enjoyed and parts a bit close to home as I have identical twins!

I was worried about the elizabeth is missing because my grandmother had alzheimers but a friend whose father currently has the disease said it wasn't a problem for her. I liked the book (I know many didn't). In fact the alzheimers is dealt with in a quite empowering way, if that makes sense, as it's down from the sufferers point of view.

Done not down.

I let you go by Claire Mackintosh is really good read. I also enjoyed all of Mark Edwards books too.

Have now finished The Kind Worth Killing - it was great - really gripping with plenty of twists and turns. Definitely recommend that one.

How about:

Perfect by Rachel Joyce
The Shock of the Fall by Nathan Filer

Apple Tree Yard?

Perfect is a bit dull I thought. Shock of the Fall was good but not a thriller type book.

Apple Tree Yard was a page turner but some bits were very implausible.

Rose petal beach or the ice cream girls by Dorothy Koomson

I hated EIM too. I just found it bloody depressing. Had nightmares about having Alzheimers afterwards!

By the way, The Kind Worth Killing is cheap as chips in the Kindle store right now. Downloaded! Thank you!

Hope you enjoy it Anna!

don't bother with Disclaimer

Southeastdweller Sun 12-Apr-15 12:07:40

Really, guilianna? I reserved it at the library yesterday. What didn't you like about it?

guilianna Sun 12-Apr-15 17:16:51

I think I had sky-high expectations! it was an OK read, but not the wow next hot thing it was hyped as. You might disagree! it seems to me the real wow books come out of nowhere and don't suffer from that weight of expectation!

I'm reading The Last Letter From Your Lover and am enjoying it. I haven't finished it yet though, so it has plenty of time to get crap!

I didn't like The Mystery of Mercy Close at all.
It just went on.
I feel bad saying that because Marian Keyes comes across so nice in interviews and in her column.

The Sea SIsters by Lucy Clarke.

If your still about I think you'd like The Sleeper by Emily Barr. Another train related mystery!
