My Reading Week

I don’t know about you, but Daylight Savings Time is kicking my butt. It always takes a few days before I feel it, and then it hits me hard.

I just finished Tell No Lies by Allison Brennan, and I loved it. Brennan has a way of telling a tale that is twisty and action-packed without losing the human element and the coveted back stories. I don’t often see that in this sub-genre of mystery. I’ve been reading fast and furious again, so I only had two days to spend with this book but I wish I had more to really take in all the exquisite details contained between the covers.

I’m starting The House of Killers by Samantha Howe, today. The characters from other stories mentioned is really what sold me on this book. I love Jason Bourne and James Bond, so a female version of those characters is very intriguing to me. I should have started it by the time you read this, so I will no more about how I like it as the day goes on.

Next, I’m reading The Dinner Guest by B.P. Walter. One More Chapter (Harper Collins) is very excited about, so of course I got excited about it. I’ve heard lots of good things and I am really looking forward to delving in!

What are you reading this week? Anything that you’re particularly excited about?

Book Description

‘One of the deadliest female assassins I’ve ever encountered in fiction’ Brendan DuBois, New York Times-bestselling author of The End with James Patterson

Killing Eve meets Jason Bourne in this nerve-shredding new thriller series simmering with obsession and espionage…

Serial killer Neva has been conditioned not to ask questions of the mysterious Network, to remain perfectly incurious and perennially cold-blooded. She must simply execute the targets they text her and live to bury the tale.

But then she’s tasked with terminating a fellow assassin and glimpses her own future in her colleague’s fate. When she leaves flowers on the gravesite, someone notices.

Agent Michael Kensington knows he’ll have his work cut out for him when he’s recruited by MI5 onto operation Archive to piece together patterns in cold cases.

Nothing could ever have prepared him for Neva…

An assassin obsessed with hell, a fugitive tortured by the secrets of her past, a woman destined to unthread him.

The House of Killers introduces a trail-blazing new voice in spy fiction. An absolute must-read for all fans of spooks past and present, from Bond to Bourne, Smiley to Polastri.

Tell No Lies by Allison Brennan

  • Print Length: 375 pgs.
  • Publisher: MIRA
  • Publication Date: March 30, 2021

Book Description:

The unsolved murder of a young activist leads to the discovery of much darker crimes in New York Times bestselling author Allison Brennan’s latest compelling thriller to feaure the young, edgy detective Kara Quinn and the loner FBI agent Matt Costa. This time they work to uncover possible ties to a high-stakes cartel in the Southwest desert.

Something mysterious is killing the wildlife in the mountains just south of Tucson. When a college intern turned activist sets out to collect her own evidence, she, too, ends up dead. Local law enforcement is slow to get involved. That’s when the mobile FBI unit goes undercover to infiltrate the town and its copper refinery in search of possible leads.

Quinn and Costa find themselves scouring the desolate landscape, which keeps revealing clues to something much darker—greed, child trafficking and more death. As the body count adds up, it’s clear they have stumbled onto much more than they bargained for. Now they must figure out who is at the heart of this mayhem and stop them before more innocent lives are lost.

The Dinner Guest by B.P. Walter

Book Description

Four people walked into the dining room that night. One would never leave.

Matthew: the perfect husband.

Titus: the perfect son.

Charlie: the perfect illusion.

Rachel: the perfect stranger.

Charlie didn’t want her at the book club. Matthew wouldn’t listen.

And that’s how Charlie finds himself slumped beside his husband’s body, their son sitting silently at the dinner table, while Rachel calls 999, the bloody knife still gripped in her hand.

Classic crime meets Donna Tartt in this nerve-shredding domestic noir thriller that weaves a sprawling web of secrets around an opulent West London world and the dinner that ends in death.

  3. Hmmm…The Dinner Guest sounds intriguing. Can’t wait to hear what you think of that one.

    I’m currently reading The End of Her by Shari Lapena. She’s one of my auto buy authors, but I’m kind of slogging through this one. The jury is still out.

  4. The House of Killers sounds pretty good.

    I just finished Heartbreak Bay, Stillhouse Lake Book 5 by Rachel Caine. I enjoyed it, as I expected to. It was bittersweet for me, as it was the last book she wrote.

    1. That series looks so good. It’s always sad to come to the last book, isn’t it? When Terry Goodkind passed last year that was my immediate thought – my most recent purchase is the last book he wrote. Very sad.

    1. It’s a difficult cover to photograph. All that white just explodes. But I found a use for the weird silverware set that came in the Fairy Loot box 🙂

  6. I was happy to hear what you said about Tell No Lies. I plan on starting it in a couple of days and have not read a lot of her books. Both of your other ones sound interesting as well. Happy reading. I am listening to Love at First by Kate Clayborn and reading After the Fire by Jane Casey.
