Murder,  serial killers, friendship and love. Its all on the line. 

Darby McCormick is a serial killer hunter, when her friend and federal agent Cooper goes missing, Darby finds herself in Montana. While searching for Cooper she stumbles upon a serial killer who has terrorised America for decades. Can Darby find Coop alive? Can she escape in one piece?

I have been writing book reviews for almost two years now, as my avid readers will know I rate books from one to five stars but, I have what I call a Diamond rating. I have never given this rating to a book in the two years that I have been doing my reviews.  That being said I am excited to say, that the first book of the new year and I get to give it a diamond rating review. 

I could not put this book down, when I started it I didn't realise it was number seven in the series, I found I was still able to read and really enjoy this book though. I cannot wait to read the rest of the series. 

This book kept me up all night, I kept telling myself just one more chapter and before I knew it I had finished the book. I loved the plot, the characters, I loved everything about this book. I don't have a single bad thing to say about this book. I found i got really invested in wanting Darby to find Cooper and to be able to tell him she loves him. I was also not expecting the twists at the end which just made the book even better in my opinion. 

Thank You to NetGalley and the publishers for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Felix The Railway Cat

Felix the Railway Cat by Kate Moore

Title: Felix the Railway Cat
Author: Kate Moore
First Published: Aug17
Publisher: Penguin
Pages: 272
Price on Amazon: Paperback £4.00 Kindle: £4.99
ISBN: 1405929782 

Back in the day, all the railway stations had railway cats. Garath and Andy both work at Huddersfield train station in Yorkshire. To pass the time and scare away boredom while on shift the pair passes around ideas on ways to make the station better. When one day one of their ideas take on a whole life of its own and before anyone knows it, things are being put in place to make it happen. What is this idea? A railway cat. When Felix arrives at the station at only eight weeks old, nobody is prepared for life-changing effects one little cat can have on an entire station. 

I got this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Now I am a huge cat lover, I have had cats my whole life and I love books about Cats, my favourite being the series following Alfie the Doorstep Cat as this reminds me so much of my little furry friend, so seeing this book and hearing all about it made me very excited, however, I must say I got halfway through the book and nothing seemed to be happening, the cat had gone to the station yet the story didn't seem to be progressing after that. I must admit I did give up on this book. I just couldn't imagine it getting any better. 

I have chosen to give this book a single star out of five as I couldn't finish it. I wouldn't recommend it nor would I attempt to finish it. I feel a bit let down as I had heard so many good reviews on this book but I myself could not get into it.

Nadiya's British Food Adventure

Nadiya's British Food Adventure

Very interesting introduction about Naiya's background and her love for food. Although I only received a sample copy, the recipes I saw looked wonderful and I cannot wait to try them out. I love cooking and experimenting with new recipes. Very interested in reading the full book and all her other recipes.
Five stars, can't wait to get cooking.
