It is time for my February wrap up! For my February TBR, I picked out 5 books, including one I started in January. February became busier that I expected, so I finished 3 books, and started a 4th book, which I will be continuing in to March.
The 3 books I finished are:
BOOK 1: Who Killed Ruby? by Camilla Way
You never know what’s going on behind closed doors…
If you passed it on the street, you’d see an ordinary London townhouse. You might wonder about the people who live there, assume they’re just like you.
But inside a family is trapped in a nightmare. In the kitchen, a man lies dead on the blood-soaked floor. Soon the police will come, and they’ll want answers.
Perhaps they’ll believe the family’s version of events – that this man is a murderer who deserved to die.
But would that be the truth?
Who Killed Ruby? was an enjoyable read, but not one that I couldn’t put down, or that I would choose to re-read. It wasn’t as good as I had expected. Read my full review HERE!
BOOK 2: Do The Birds Still Sing In Hell? by Horace Greasley
Even in the most horrifying places on earth, hope still lingers in the darkness, waiting for the opportunity to take flight.
When war was declared Horace Greasley was just twenty years old. After seven weeks’ training with the 2/5th Battalion, the Royal Leicestershire Regiment, Horace found himself facing the might of the German Army in a muddy field south of Cherbourg, in northern France, with just thirty rounds in his ammunition pouch.
Horace’s war didn’t last long… On 25 May 1940 he was taken prisoner and so began the harrowing journey to a prisoner-of-war camp in Poland. Those who survived the gruelling ten-week march to the camp were left broken and exhausted, all chance of escape seemingly extinguished.
But when Horace met Rosa, the daughter of one of his captors, his story changed; fate, it seemed, had thrown him a lifeline. Horace risked everything in order to steal out of the camp to see his love, bringing back supplies for his fellow prisoners. In doing so he offered hope to his comrades, and defiance to one of the most brutal regimes in history.
This really wasn’t what I was expecting. It didn’t seem right that there was so much sexual content in a story about a prisoner of war. My full review is HERE!
BOOK 3: Avenge The Dead by Jackie Baldwin
Four friends with dark secrets. One killer out for revenge.
DI Frank Farrell and DS McLeod are tasked with investigating the brutal murder of a defence solicitor’s wife in Dumfries.
It’s been over a year since they left the town after an investigation robbed them of a dear friend. But now they’re back and must find a way to move on.
When the son of another defence solicitor is murdered, a strange tattoo etched on his body, the case takes them into darker, more disturbing territory.
It leads them back into the past – to a horrific fire in a cottage that took a woman’s life, to four friends harbouring dark secrets – and finally to a killer waiting patiently for revenge.
I absolutely loved Avenge the Dead, and will definitely be reading the other books in the DI Frank Farrell series! You can read my review HERE!
