Psychological Thriller | Behind the Lie by Amanda James

Having enjoyed Amanda James’ previous novels, I was delighted to be asked to read her most recent novel.  I didn’t realise Behind the Lie was a psychological thriller (you may have noticed I don’t read many psychological thrillers) which is a good thing as I would have missed a fast paced and tense read!

Women’s Fiction | A Year and a Day by Isabelle Broom

A Year and a Day by Isabelle Broom is another one of those reads that has sat on my Netgalley ‘older than 3 months’ shelf.  I’m so glad I made the decision to try to clear that shelf as this is such a gem of a read.  I’ve always wanted to go to Prague and Isabelle Broom’s writing has taken me there with such fabulous characters.  I’ve certainly been on…
