I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
Cari Hunter has recently become a favourite of mine after I came across her Dark Peak series. She writes amazing crime fiction novels. So it was a no brainer for me to read this book.
I love the fact that all her books are set in the countryside. There is something very charming about a countryside setting and it also there is the fact that it is a perfect setting for a crime novel. If my username didn't clue you in, I love pro ...more
Really really enjoyed this one, fantastic crime story and need I mention the super hot sex scene, she made it quite realistic compared to a lot I read, loved the characters , I don’t read many British books so it’s really nice when I get one in my clutches especially as good as this one, my only gripe is that I didn’t feel any chemistry between them but still this deserves positive praise, I’d definitely recommend this book.....
An ARC was provided in exchange for an honest review.
Cari Hunter writes exceedingly good books and this is the best yet.
It starts with a literal “bang” when a car goes off the road in the Welsh hills leaving one woman dead and the other severely injured and suffering amnesia. Who she is and why she is there elude her, and us. Working with Detective Bronwen Pryce from the local police the survivor must piece together her life, and then survive the what she finds.
The plot is fast and sometimes furious, but as usual with Ms Hunter's writing ...more
It is amazing how this author manages to describe the environments in which her books are developed in such a way that you almost find yourself there. Because the weather play as important a role as any of the characters in their stories. And also she discovers to us the plot gradually and without tricks or deceptions, which is welcomed when you face a mystery or thriller.
So this story begins with a car accident in which a woman dies and another is badly wounded and with amnesia. And from here, ...more
Alias was actually the first book I read by this author, and it was very good. I loved how the two main characters developed over time, especially from stoicism and mistrust to braving true emotions. I also enjoyed the characters’ tone and the author’s use of certain phrases associated with her character’s ethnicity. This added to the realism of the story along with the very descriptive settings of England and Wales.
The plot was very entertaining. As more characters came into play, the mystery ...more
Rebecca wakes up to find herself in a smashed up car with a dead woman. She’s not sure how it happened, where she is or who she is. Detective Bronwen Pryce is first on the scene and once she’s been taken to hospital, Rebecca has a sense she can trust her even though she has an uneasiness about everything else.
This is a riveting mystery and suspense novel set in Wales and Manchester. Rebecca’s journey of recovery, with her fragmented and intermittent memory, is hampered by the overriding feeling ...more
This book has been a joy to read. Of all the Cari Hunter books on my shelf, this is currently my favourite. The story is an exciting, fast-paced thriller that holds your attention from the first chapter - the writing is sharp, and to the point. If work hadn’t got in the way, I would probably have read it end-to-end in a day.
I would highly recommend that you read this book without reading the blurb, or any of the online reviews - it helps preserve the element of surprise that is so integral to t ...more
Devoured in a day! Amnesia-driven mystery/thriller written in the first person POV. First impressions: loved the mystery, didn't love the romance (what romance???, lol), and not enough Det. Pryce (well, the blurb kinda led me on...so...)
The cover though....?!?!?!? might have worked on another author's book. But on Cari Hunter's trademark grimy, gritty, bloody thrillers? Totally inappropriate. And in sub-zero English (or in this case Welsh) weather that is such an integral part of the book? No w ...more
