We Were Never Here by Andrea Bartz

Summary:

On holiday in Chile with her best friend Kristen, Emily is having the time of her life.

Until one night, she finds their hotel suite covered in blood.

Kristen claims a backpacker attacked her. She shouted, but no-one heard. She struggled, but he was too strong.

She had no option but to kill him.

With no evidence of the assault, Emily must help her hide the body. . .

Back home, Emily tries to forget what happened, but a surprise visit from Kristen forces her to confront the events of that night.

As the walls close in, Emily asks herself: can her closest friend be trusted?

My Review:

Just how well do you know your best friend? We Were Never Here (Michael Joseph) by Andrea Bartz really does explore this in a fabulous gripping thriller. When two friends go on holiday together and something happens one night, and it is later that the past really must be explored more deeply.

The two friends are Emily and Kristen have been close since their university days and are now having the time of their lives on holiday in Chile that is until one evening it all goes horribly wrong. When Emily returns to the hotel room to find a scene from hell. There is blood in the hotel room. Her best friend Kristen has been involved in a confrontation with a man in their room. Kristen covered in blood has killed the man and she is saying that he attacked her, and that she had no choice but to kill him.

Their dream holiday has turned into the worst nightmare. Rather than contacting the police Emily helps Kristen ‘clean up’ and dispose of the body. Now the story moves on and Emily is at home clearly still shocked at what had happened in their hotel room. But out of the blue Kristen turns up on at her front door. No warning of her arrival and is already showing signs of moving on from that terrifying evening, but things don’t end here Kristen is now showing up more and more and unexpected places in Emily’s life. This is getting a little creepy and tense and it is Emily who is starting to question what really went on that evening. There is something more sinister going on.

Andrea Bartz has written a fabulous thriller with lots of intriguing dialogue and has created two more than interesting characters. Written as though it is Emily who is telling you the story. A slow-burning psychological thriller that will have you guessing all the way through until the very end.

Beautiful World, Where Are You by Sally Rooney

Beautiful World, Where Are You by Sally Rooney

Summary:

Alice, a novelist, meets Felix, who works in a warehouse, and asks him if he’d like to travel to Rome with her. In Dublin, her best friend Eileen is getting over a break-up and slips back into flirting with Simon, a man she has known since childhood.

Alice, Felix, Eileen and Simon are still young – but life is catching up with them. They desire each other, they delude each other, they get together, they break apart. They worry about sex and friendship and the world they live in. Are they standing in the last lighted room before the darkness, bearing witness to something? Will they find a way to believe in a beautiful world?

My Review:

My thanks to Faber & Faber for the tantalising extract from the hotly anticipated book of 2021. Beautiful World, Where Are you by Sally Rooney will be released on 7th September, so not long to wait.

I am obviously not going to give any spoilers here suffice to say that this is going to be something rather special. As this was an extract, I got to meet Alice who is a writer and Felix who works in a warehouse and both set off on a first date together, but just how do they get on and do they want to see more of each other. Sally Rooney sets the scene for the reader, blind dates can sometimes be a disaster, so I am really intrigued to see what does become of both Alice and Felix. Both have a story to tell, which you are going to want to know more about. There was an intriguing end to the chapter that left you wanting to know what happened next.

Sally Rooney has a beautiful writing style, and she really gets the characters so right and allows you to be drawn into the story. I felt as though I was eavesdropping on their blind date, that I what Sally Rooney does with her writing. This story is alive and left you wanting more.

Look out for a full review of Beautiful World, Where Are you by Sally Rooney after publication.

Goshawk Summer: A New Forest Season Unlike Any Other by James Aldred

Goshawk Summer: A New Forest Season Unlike Any Other by James Aldred

Summary:

In early 2020, wildlife cameraman James Aldred was commissioned to film the lives of a family of Goshawks in the New Forest, his childhood home. He began to plan a treetop hide in a remote site that would allow him to film the Gos nest, the newly hatched chicks and the lives of these elusive and enchanting birds.

Then lockdown. And as the world retreated, something remarkable happened. The noise of our everyday stilled. No more cars, no more off-roaders, no more airplanes roaring in the skies, no one in the Goshawk woods – except James.

At this unique moment, James was granted a once in a lifetime opportunity to keep filming. And so, over Spring and into Summer, he began to record his experiences in a place empty of people but filled with birdsong and new life.

Amidst the fragility and the fear, there was silver moonlight, tumbling fox cubs, calling curlew and, of course, the soaring Goshawks – shining like fire through one of our darkest times. A Goshawk summer unlike any other.

My Review:

James Aldred is an Emmy award-winning wildlife cameraman and has worked alongside Sir David Attenborough on many projects. Recently released is his latest book Goshawk Summer: A New Forest Season Unlike Any Other (Elliott & Thompson) Which tells the story of how James was commissioned to film a family of Goshawks in the New Forest during the countries first Covid lockdown. Goshawks are incredible birds of prey. I have only ever seen one in my life and was left in awe at its power.

When James Aldred was given permission to film a pair of Goshawks deep in the New Forest the country was in lockdown, the forest was quiet, even the sky was free from the noise of aircraft. It felt like James had the entire forest to himself. This was a rare opportunity to film without disturbance.  A treetop hide gave incredible views of the nest during the spring months as the pair began to raise their family.

Rarely seen as they are silent hunters of the forest James will have just seconds as he will hear the call as one of the Goshawks approaches the nest from deep within the forest. Through the spring the forest is awakening from its winter sleep and life is returning the forest is full of birdsong, but this is a springtime unlike any other we have known. As James filmed, he also kept a written diary, and this is how Goshawk Summer is set out. James writes so beautifully you are almost there with him. We all may have been locked down at home, but nature came into its own and as spring turned into early summer the forest came alive.

As much as this is a book about a family of Goshawks what James also brings us is the story of how the New Forest burst into life with birds and animals. This indeed was a very special moment and a rare moment even for the experienced James Aldred. The year 2020 was a dreadful year and one we will never forget but at the same time what James brings us here is something rather special as you join him doing what he loves in a special place that is close to his heart. Goshawk Summer is a very special book and one I treasured reading.

White Spines: Confessions of a Book Collector by Nicholas Royle

White Spines: Confessions of a Book Collector by Nicholas Royle

Summary:

A mix of memoir and narrative non-fiction. White Lines is about a Nicholas Royle s passion for Picador s fiction publishing from the 1970s to the end of the 1990s. It explores the bookshops and charity shops, the books themselves and the way a unique collection grew and became a literary obsession.

My Review:

We all love books, but do you collect books from a specific publisher? Nicholas Royle does just that, he does not just love books he is an avid collector of old books published by Picador. These are the books with the white spines. In his wonderful new book White Spines: Confessions of a Book Collector (Salt) the author takes us on a literary journey from second-hand bookshops on his travels. This reads like a love letter to books and writing and it really is.

There is nothing better than spending time in a bookshop and then discovering a second-hand bookshop, there are real gems to be found. Many times, I have purchased a book from a second-hand bookshop I have found notes from the previous owner, or the book has been inscribed and you just wonder who this person really was.

I just loved the way Nicholas Royle talks about his passion for books, his excitement at finding a new edition though sometimes the publisher may change the cover design that might not do justice to the book. He also shares with us the bookish conversations he has had about great books that have been read.

Nicholas takes us on a tour across the country of great bookshops he has discovered, and he also takes time to talk to some of the authors of the Picador white spine editions. At the back of the book, he gives us a list of his collection of these very desirable books he has collected over the years.

I just love books about books and White Spines really is a terrific read very much set out in a diary format and is so full of heart. Who knows one day someone will find a copy of White Spines in a charity bookshop and take it home and inspire them to discover the old Picador collections from the 1970’s to the 1990’s. My copy will be staying with me forever. It is a pure delight to read.

The Beresford by Will Carver

The Beresford by Will Carver

Summary:

Just outside the city – any city, every city – is a grand, spacious but affordable apartment building called The Beresford.

There’s a routine at The Beresford.

For Mrs May, every day’s the same: a cup of cold, black coffee in the morning, pruning roses, checking on her tenants, wine, prayer and an afternoon nap. She never leaves the building.

Abe Schwartz also lives at The Beresford. His housemate, Sythe, no longer does. Because Abe just killed him. 

In exactly sixty seconds, Blair Conroy will ring the doorbell to her new home and Abe will answer the door. They will become friends. Perhaps lovers. 

And, when the time comes for one of them to die, as is always the case at The Beresford, there will be sixty seconds to move the body before the next unknowing soul arrives at the door.

Because nothing changes at The Beresford, until the doorbell rings…

Eerie, dark, superbly twisted and majestically plotted, The Beresford is the stunning standalone thriller from one of crime fiction’s most exciting names.

My Review:

There is something about Will Carver’s novels, I have been lucky enough to have read all of them so far and loved each one and his latest The Beresford (Orenda Books) is out in bookshops now and this is right up there with Carver’s previous novels but just be aware of the doorbell! There is something creepy about Will Carver and his books and his latest is no exception. It is dark, eerie and chilling.

Welcome to The Beresford this old building that has apartments, and some rather interesting tenants, except many won’t be around for long and so we hear the doorbell ring that heralds a new arrival.

The rates are cheap at The Beresford and so they come. We meet Mrs May whose age no-one really knows but guess. She has a daily routine; she makes coffee and lets it go cold because that is how she likes it. She even prays for many of the residents that come to stay. She prunes the roses and believes she knows everything that goes on at The Beresford.

Then we meet Abe, who seems like a nice guy, but Abe has just killed Sythe and has exactly sixty seconds to move the body. But Abe is a good person and did not want to kill Sythe. But just how is he going to dispose of the body?

The doorbell rings and a new arrival has come to stay, Blair Conroy has arrived finally away from her devout religious parents and now has the freedom to do want every she wants even with the bedroom door open.

Death awaits those who come to stay at The Beresford when the doorbell rings there is that dread of knowing that murder will follow, and each new arrival is a character, and each has their own story to be told.

Will Carver does write brilliant books and there is real humour to be found within the pages of The Beresford and you the reader are going to meet the residents as they arrive, their fate is sealed but are YOU going to judge them before they meet their fate?

But why are the people here committing murder? If the walls could speak what tales, they would tell of the goings on in this old apartment building. Of the people that come to stay and ultimately die. The Beresford is just a brilliantly chilling read in a way that only Will Carver can create. Is that the doorbell I have just heard?

One Last Time by Helga Flatland

One Last Time by Helga Flatland

Translated by Rosie Hedger

Summary:

My Review:

Anne’s life is rushing to an unexpected and untimely end. But her diagnosis of terminal cancer isn’t just a shock for her and for her daughter Sigrid and granddaughter Mia it shines a spotlight onto their fractured and uncomfortable relationships.

On a spur-of-the moment trip to France the three generations of women reveal harboured secrets, long-held frustrations and suppressed desires, and learn humbling and heart-warming lessons about how life should be lived when death is so close.

With all of Helga Flatland’s trademark humour, razor-sharp wit and deep empathy, One Last Time examines the great dramas that can be found in ordinary lives, asks the questions that matter to us all and ultimately celebrates the resilience of the human spirit, in an exquisite, enchantingly beautiful novel that urges us to treasure and rethink … everything.

My Review:

Having really enjoyed A Modern Family I have been so looking forward to One Last Time (Orenda Books) and is Helga Flatland’s sixth novel and her second to be translated into English and beautifully translated by Rosie Hedger. I have become a fan of Helga Flatland’s writing as she does really bring a story alive with her characters.

Families can sometimes be complicated, and secrets can be kept and even cracks that appear are papered over. In One Last Time we follow the story of Anne who has been diagnosed cancer and the news is bleak. Now is a time for those close to Anne to come together and no more so than her daughter Sigrid but also for her granddaughter Mia.

In this family there have been many problems that have really caused cracks in the family to become much deeper which in turn has affected all the relationships in the family. The story focuses mainly on mother and daughter but not ignoring the problems that are occurring between Sigrid and her daughter Mia.

You may think that this is a novel that could be bleak and even dark, but with Helga Flatland you just know that she will bring something into the story even humour will find a way into the devastating storyline. Many novels can leave a lasting impression and is why I have come to love Flatland’s writing as this is a storyline that will leave a legacy on the reader as much as Anne only wants to leave only the positive of memories behind. This is a family trying to reconnect and trying to reconnect with themselves.

At the end of the day all we have is love and love can mend broken hearts and even broken families. The characters that have been created are characters you will come to know, and it is Anne and her strength and even humour when faced with what is to come.

Helga Flatland has again weaved a beautiful and emotive story and one to be cherished like life itself.

Reckless by R.J. McBrien

Reckless by R.J. McBrien

Summary:

You think you’ll stay the same – you won’t. Infidelity will change you forever. There can be no going back.

Kirsten Calloway knows she should be grateful. She has a stable marriage, decent job, and a wonderful teenage daughter. But she also has a raging libido that won’t shut up, and a husband who’d rather go on a bike ride.

She bumps into an old friend at a school reunion who faces a similar problem. Dianne, though, has found the answer: a discreet agency which arranges casual sex for people just like them, people who want to keep their marriages but also scratch that itch.

Enter Zac: younger, handsome and everything Kirsten could hope for in bed. For a while, they seem to have it all. Kirsten even finds herself becoming a better wife and mother. But Zac wants more – a lot more, and he’ll stop at nothing to get it.

Sexually charged, shocking and relatable, Reckless is a profound exploration of marriage, motherhood and desire.

My Review:

Kirsten Galloway is bright and intelligent, and she is successful. She is happily married to Mark. She has a teenage daughter is just wonderful. What more in life could she possibly want? Reckless (Welbeck Publishing) by R.J. McBrien tells the story of Kirsten who is an Occupational Therapist at her local hospital, and this is the brilliant tense fast paced thriller that tells the story of a woman who has it all but knows there is something missing in her life.

Kirsten’s marriage is happy and stable but there is just that one thing missing and that is a spark, that physical part is missing, and Kirsten needs that part, but on the other side of the marriage is Mark and he just seems no longer interested in the physical aspect of the marriage.

It is then that Kirsten meets Dianne her friend from her school days and Dianne tells her of an agency that arranges linkups for one thing only and that is sex. All very discreet like it is wrapped in that plain wrapper and no-one will know what is going one not even the husband at home. Kirsten knows she wants this and then it becomes like a drug, that she cannot get enough of. Mark would much rather watch porn on a secret laptop in the loft, but Kirsten wants the real thing and is now in too deep. What started as a discreet liaison is now a full-blown nightmare.

Throughout the book there are sudden police reports about a body found along the railway line, so you are the reader, and you are reading and at the back of your mind you are putting this complex puzzle together. So, what does Kirsten really know about the body that has been found.

There are so many intriguing characters that you will come across in Reckless, I loved the way the story has been crafted and the characters you will want to scream at one minute yet feel for them the next. We all love a twist in a thriller and Reckless has it. But I am giving no clues here. The tension will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. Marriage and desire and the risk of losing everything you have is all here. The perfect summer beach read.

A Song Unsung by Fiona Cane

A Song Unsung by Fiona Cane

Summary:

Set against the bohemian backdrop of Soho’s jazz basements and coffee shops of the late fifties, and a Sussex village during the long hot summer of 1976, A Song Unsung is a coming-of-age story about an impressionable teenage girl who falls under the spell of a beautiful singer with a mysterious past.

Martha Palmer, an aspiring singer working in a coffee shop, is desperately short of cash. She’s been scouted by a photographer. The money’s good. But there’s a catch …Sussex 1976. Nothing much happens in teenager Natasha James’ life. Her mother has taken to her bed and her father, the local doctor, is preoccupied with his patients. But when the magnetic Martha Palmer moves into her village, Natasha is drawn into a glittery world of extravagant parties, steeped in the embroidered rhythms of jazz. But who is the mysterious Martha Palmer? And why is she the keeper of so many secrets? Desperate to fill in the gaps of Martha’s past, Natasha uncovers a heart-breaking love story, the truth of which threatens to destroy all that she holds dear.

My Review:

Firstly, apologies I am a few weeks late with my review due to an enforced break.

It was a few years ago now that I read The Other Side of the Mountain by Fiona Cane and really loved the story that was set in 2001 in Haiti. Fiona now returns with her latest novel which is now her fifth novel, A Song Unsung (Caracol Books) that if you like me, you love jazz music, then you will love the storyline as Jazz is very much the backdrop.

This is a remarkable novel so beautifully constructed with two leading characters in Martha and Natasha and two decades being the 1950’s and the 1970’s.

First, we meet Martha Palmer in Soho, London and it is 1958. Martha is basically just existing and is struggling to make ends meet since leaving home and she is desperate to just earn enough to pay her rent. There is however one thing that Martha does love and that is to sing. She dreams of being a singer, but these are just dreams of another life as right now Martha is at dead end and is now desperate for cash. Then one day she happens to meet someone who change her life and this encounter leads to her to meeting a photographer. Sometimes when a promise of a new life comes up there is always a catch.

Fast forward to Sussex in 1976 and a young Natasha James is thinking that her own life is bored and that something is really missing in her life to give her that spark. With her mother who has withdrawn from life and a father who is a doctor and seemingly more interested in his practice than home. Then that missing spark arrives when Martha Palmer has moved into the local area and Natasha is captivated by her.

But behind the Martha there are so many secrets that she is desperate to keep locked away, but Natasha is more than just captivated by her, she is wants to know more about Martha Palmer and this is where there is a whole new story of a past, a love story that could really threaten everything.

I have had a love of jazz music for longer than I can recall and having spent many years in London and the sights and sounds of jazz clubs this brought back memories and Fiona’s writing about the music is really a story that comes alive to the soundtrack to jazz music. I enjoyed both the leading characters thought both different people they both have real personalities for different reasons.

There is a story that lurks beneath, and you do not know how this is going to go as you read through A Song Unsung as there are many secrets that are like a jigsaw puzzle just waiting to be pieced together.

If you are looking for a book for that summer weekend away, then I would recommend Fiona Cane’s latest and make sure you have a jazz soundtrack to play in the background.

Cabin Fever by Alex Dahl

Cabin Fever by Alex Dahl

Summary:

Alone and isolated in a vast Scandinavian forest, a therapist begins to read her client’s novel manuscript, only to discover the main character is terrifyingly familiar…

You are her therapist.

Kristina is a successful therapist in central Oslo. She spends her days helping clients navigate their lives with a cool professionalism that has got her to the top.

She is your client.

But when her client Leah, a successful novelist, arrives at her office clearly distressed, begging Kristina to come to her remote cabin in the woods, she feels the balance begin to slip.

But out here in the woods.

When Leah fails to turn up to her next two sessions, Kristina reluctantly heads out into the wilderness to find her.

Nothing is as it seems.

Alone and isolated, Kristina finds Leah’s unfinished manuscript, and as she reads she realises the main character is terrifyingly familiar…

My Review:

Deep in a Scandinavian Forest is an isolated cabin that belongs to Leah Iverson who is a well-known and popular writer. Dr Kristina Moss is a successful psychotherapist. When Leah arrives at Kristina’s office, Kristina knows something is not right and when Leah starts to ask her to come to her remote cabin set deep in the woods where the silence can be loud. You just know you are about to read a creepy and claustrophobic and tense novel. Cabin Fever (Head of Zeus) by Alex Dahl. If you enjoy Scandi Noir then do not miss this.

There is something about a thriller set deep in a Scandinavian forest that sends a shiver down my spine and Alex Dahl did just that in her latest thriller Cabin Fever that is released today. When Kristina is asked to join Leah, who is her patient at her cabin deep in the forest, things start to really get tense for the reader.

Leah disappears and Kristina sets out to find her alone in a deep creepy forest, but that is not all, Kristina finds the latest manuscript that Leah has been working on and now the story gets intense. Your pulse is racing, and your palms are sweating. Now Kristina suddenly realises she is in real danger. This is an intense thriller, as dark as a Scandinavian forest at night. Beautifully crafted with key characters in Kristina and Leah that are troubled with pasts that they cannot escape from.

What Alex Dahl has done is to write a novel with so many twists and turns that will make your head spin. The descriptions of the location are superb scene setters for what is to come. Then there is the ending. No spoilers as you care going to have to prepare to spend some time deep in the forest and find out for yourself. You will not be disappointed.

Unbreak your Heart by Katie Marsh

Unbreak your Heart by Katie Marsh

Summary:

Seven-year-old Jake’s heart is failing and he doesn’t want to leave his dad, Simon, alone. So he makes a decision: to find Simon someone to love before he goes.

Beth is determined to forget the past. But even when she leaves New York to start afresh in a Lake District village, she can’t shake the secrets that haunt her.

Single dad Simon still holds a candle for the woman who left him years ago. Every day is a struggle to earn a living while caring for his beloved son. He has no time for finding someone new.

But Jake is determined his plan will succeed – and what unfolds will change all three of them forever.

My Review:

I have been a fan of Katie Marsh’s writing since her debut novel My Everything that became a bestseller in 2015. Katie now returns with her latest Unbreak Your Heart (Hodder). A story of broken hearts and is also a love story that will make you laugh and will move you.

Katie has a real gift for writing such beautiful novels, the characters she creates for her stories are so real and here in Unbreak Your Heart There are three main characters in her latest novel.

Beth has left her life behind in New York and starting a new life in the beautiful setting of the Lake District, a place that can heal many a broken heart, but Beth is struggling to leave her past life behind. Sometimes life throws up chance encounters that were always meant to be and it is a sudden encounter with seven-year-old Jake, that is just such an encounter even if the first meeting is an accident. Simon is Jake’s father, and we get to meet the three characters stories as Jake is suffering from a heart condition, Simon is a single father and Jake is fully aware of his heart problem and his fear is that one day he will be leaving his dad alone and so wants to find someone to be there for the father he loves so much. Jake’s condition is so serious that Simon is not able to work and so he spends his days with his son.

Life can be a real struggle in a situation where you are a single parent alone and looking after your child whose health is so serious and the financial implications this brings. At this point I am not going to give any more away as I want you to discover the story of Beth, Jake, and Simon. It is a story that is just so full of love, and you will begin to understand why each day is so important and just how important it is to love.

Yes, Katie Marsh you have done it again.
