If you want a lightweight funny and highly entertaining book then look no further. Marian Keyes is the queen of this genre, her books are captivating from the moment you open them.
The Woman Who Stole My Life is a wonderful trip through the life of a middle age woman, who once had everything only to loose it all, to claw and scrape her way back to make a life for her family only to possibly loose it all again!
It has a wonderful story line of romance, family, heartbreak, illness and most of fun. How do you make some of life’s biggest decisions when you have a family to think of, sometimes putting yourself first is the only way forward despite what everyone may think.
I can’t say too much about the book without giving anything away so please just trust me and give it a read! Its a great book with a lovely story, it will make you laugh it will make you angry and it will make you sad everything a good book should do.
I adore all of Karen Rose’s books so far, they contain all of the sections from my favorite genres. They have gruesome crimes, brave heroes, exciting plot twists and a good portion of sex and romance whithout being too over the top.
Some of Rose’s novels contain some of the same characters but I haven’t read them in order and I have not found the story confusing or disjointed at all.
Silent Scream is about many different criminal activities like arson, murder, blackmail and adultery. It highlights throughout the story that you can never be too careful about who is listening or watching your every move! A fire is set by a group of teenagers, who realising there is someone in the building, just walk away leaving them there to die. The only problem is someone else watched them do it and has it all on video tape, determined to make them pay and to be the master who pulls their strings the voyeur begins blackmailing them.
Can detectives Sutherland and Kane figure out who is behind all of this before it all comes crashing down and people get hurt? Can detective Sutherland find love with handsome fire fighter David?
Well read the book to find out! Written in a diary type style you follow the plot day by day and time slot by time slot slowly unravelling the story. Strongly suggest a read if you jave never tried Karen Rose before.
As always Mr King never fails to completely enchant me with his novels. Even though most are very long they dont feel like they are hard to read, they just flow across every page dragging you deeper into the plot.
For me this is a romance novel the only way King knows how, lots of horror, magical beings and the idea that we are only part of what is on this earth and in this reality, mixed in with some heartbreak and love for good measure. As usual the book also covers some difficult topics like domestic abuse and abortion, never gratifying either it is used as a tool to represent how inflammatory topics can spiral out of control.
Also as with some others of Stephen King’s books this on makes reference to the dark tower series and the power that seems to run through Derry. If you haven’t read the Dark Tower books I suggest you do and if you are a fan of King then you will be aware that the Dark Tower features in a few of his novels like IT, The Eyes Of The Dragon just to name a couple.
King is one of the best authors around and if you haven’t ready any of his stuff please give it a try, you will not be disappointed.
