99p on kindle today. Not read it yet, just picked it up. Just in case someone else is looking for a bargain. :-)

How strange! I decided to buy a couple of actual paperbacks today for the beach and that's one of them. Looking forward to it.

I enjoyed this book so much when I read it that this post has prompted me to read again even though I know the ending

Looking forward to reading it now. Been ages since I managed to bag myself a bargain.

I got it too but I've not started it yet

May many bounties fall upon you.

Wow! This has been on my wish list and ive read the sample. Thank you!!

Sorry, but read it a few weeks ago, and found it unbelievably awful. I know you expect some unlikely bits in a thriller, but this was just ridiculous.

kimlo Fri 23-Jun-17 22:34:56

I didn't like it.

MrsReacher85 Fri 23-Jun-17 22:36:02

I agree Clawdy, it was recommended to me so I finished it, but I really hated it. It didn't live up to the premise at all.

Is this recent? I bought it today but I'm almost convinced I've already read it.

On the other hand, I've just finished The Girlfriend and I enjoyed that one.

I've just bought a new authors first book to try: Anything is Possible by Rob Osbourne on Amazon. Early reviews seems to say it's good - hoping to start it this weekend smile

I finished this a few days ago, not the best book I've ever read but would definitely worth a read.

AgentProvocateur Sun 25-Jun-17 23:38:56

I thought this was one of the worst books I've ever read.

SorrelSoup Mon 26-Jun-17 06:51:53

OH no!

ChessieFL Mon 26-Jun-17 07:06:42

I didn't like this one either.

MargotMoon Mon 26-Jun-17 07:19:22

Oh darn, I've got this on my kindle waiting for holiday read. Sounds like I need some backup in case I have to abandon it!

Vistaverde Tue 27-Jun-17 14:36:29

Sorry, I'm another one who really didn't like this. I didn't find it particularly engrossing and thought it fairly predictable.

Margot back up read sounds like a good plan.

I've just read it and must have thought it was ok as read it in a few days! Some bits are a bit far fetched but perfect thriller bubblegum for the beach. Currently reading a book called The Trap and finding that hard work. Also recommend The Dry which is just out in paperback for a slightly different who did it.

WillowWeeping Tue 27-Jun-17 14:54:15

Perfectly enjoyable beachside reading.

I'm on hols at the moment - it's been the best of three "best sellers" I've got through in the last few days.

StarHeartDiamond Tue 27-Jun-17 15:10:22

I've read it! Lightweight whodunnit with two-dimensional characters, somewhat far fetched but perfectly acceptable for poolside reading and satisfactorily ties up all the loose ends, I will say that for it smile

KeithLeMonde Tue 27-Jun-17 17:03:07

I bought it for 99p and just finished it.

Have to admit it was a page-turner, but fairly awful. Disliked the use of mental health issues. However, it would be a decent enough sun lounger book - it was certainly an easy read.

CoffeeCoffeeAndLotsOfIt Tue 27-Jun-17 17:05:58

I'd give it 3/5 stars. Characters weren't very well developed - or likeable.

I also felt the author was trying to put in twists whenever she could.

But as a beach read it was ok.

userblahblahwhatever Tue 27-Jun-17 19:05:45

Well I've jus finished this and it was surprisingly satisfying, though completely unbelievable! Very pacy, I read in a couple of days. Just what I want from a trashy psycho thriller really.

I'm actually going to miss it.

Wouldn't read it again though, dear me!

userblahblahwhatever Tue 27-Jun-17 19:06:57

I'll get The Dry.

Willow- which other books did you read?smile
