September Book Round-Up

Here's what I've been reading in September:

The Katharina Code by Jørn Lier Horst* This is my first read of Chief Inspector William Wisting and I'll definitely go back at some point and read the series. Twenty-four years ago Katharina Haugen went missing. She left no clues apart from mysterious numbers scribbled on a bit of paper that no-one has been able to solve.

Every year on the anniversary Chief Inspector Wisting visits her husband, who has become a friend of sorts. He can't let go of the case (and even keeps the case files in the bottom of his wardrobe!)

Cold Case detective Stiller is convinced Martin Haugen is involved in the case he's investigating of the disappearance of a young woman....and wants Wisting to get close to Haugen.

I found the story interesting in parts and slow in others. All in all a good read which I enjoyed.

Tell Nobody DI Lottie Parker #5 by Patricia Gibney* - an absolutely amazing read. I love this series and Lottie. I'm taking part in the Blog Tour in October so I'll share my thoughts in my October round-up.

The Fake Date by Lynda Stacey*** - I just love Lynda's books. I reviewed it on publication day - see my review HERE.

The Relentless Tide - A DCI Daley Thriller by Denzil Meyrick** - such a brilliant read. See my review HERE.

Down to the Woods by M J Arlidge (DI Helen Grace #8)* - oh how I love this series! The story is set in the New Forest and a young woman camper awakens to find her fiancee gone. There is another similar incident where a young woman goes missing. Why is this happening? Are they connected in some way? Two new forest ponies are found dead with the same injuries and DI Helen Grace and the Team are on the case to find the twisted killer before he strikes again.

Annoying journo, Emilia Garanita thinks she's one step ahead of the law and publishes news articles that aren't helpful to the case. There's a new DS on the team who is attracted to his boss and makes this known on more than one occasion.... As ever, a fast paced, gripping and twisted read which I devoured in two days. Absolutely loved it. Highly recommend.

The Lingering by SJI Holliday** - oh this is a creepy read! Jack & Ali Gardiner leave the rat race behind and all their problems...or do they? The atmosphere seems to change the moment they arrive at self-sufficient Rosalind House, a former psychiatric hospital.

One of the residents Fairy Angela who is obsessed by ghosts is desperate to be friends with Ali but Ali's not so sure. Why is it only Ali's who can see the ghosts and what does it mean? A spooky read with an ending I never saw coming! Brilliant.

From last month:

The Lion Tamer who Lost by Louise Beech** - I was on the blog tour this month. I just adored this book. See my review HERE.

After he Died by Michael J Malone** - again I was on the blog tour for this un-put-downable read. See my review HERE.

What have you been reading this month?
