The Truth About Keeping Secrets
The Truth About Keeping Secrets is one of those multi-layered books, the kind that just pull you in until you realise you’ve nearly finished the book. I enjoyed it, and it kept my interest the whole way through. An intriguing book and definitely one to add to your list if secrets and lies are your bookish bread and butter!
Following on from the events of Stillhouse Lake, Killman Creek picks up in the aftermath. I binge read this series because it was so utterly compelling. I had to keep reading, I had to find out what was going on, I JUST NEEDED TO KNOW!!!! I’m a huge lover of US-based crime thrillers and this series satisfies that need. Thoroughly enjoyed this one!
The True Queen
The True Queen is a beautifully-imagined fantasy, rich in detail and imagery and with a really diverse cast of characters. Its an absorbing and engaging read, and it almost reminds me of The Invisible Library series of books by Genevieve Cogman. If you enjoy fantasy with stunning desccriptive writing, then definitely add The True Queen to your TBR.
I don’t tend to read much Irish crime fiction, but being a Galway girl, I just had to bump The Ruin up my TBR. I ended up blasting through this book. The setting was really well used, and I found myself nodding along with places I recognised. This is the first in a series, and it is a cracking start. I really enjoyed it. Clever plot, good characters and pacing made this book a great read. I’m looking forward to reading the next book in the series. Recommended for sure!
