The Affair by Sheryl Browne

MoMo’s Book Diary recommends “The Affair” as a (better than) 5 star suspense novel.

Followers of my book blog (momobookdiary) will be aware of how highly I rate the author Sheryl Browne. Whilst I have enjoyed her romance / chicklit novels, I must admit I really do prefer her gripping psychological thrillers.  I love the way that Sheryl’s mind works – so much suspense and you just never know what twist is coming next.

This book fantastically hooked me from the start and I had goosebumps return again and again throughout.  The characters immediately come to life and I was left thinking about those who remain long after I finished the book. There are twists and surprises throughout the book which keep you guessing until the final twist.

Thank you to Sheryl Browne, Bookouture and Net Galley for the opportunity to read and review this book prior to publication.  As soon as I received the approval email from NetGalley and Bookouture I got myself settled and started to read. It took me less than 6 hours to read cover to cover.  I simply can’t “do” life when I have a Sheryl Browne book on my kindle to read!

Synopsis

Is he lying? Or is she?

Alicia’s been telling lies. And now they’ve come back to haunt her.

When an old colleague turns up at a party, Alicia comes face to face with the man who has the potential to ruin her perfect family life. He wouldn’t, would he?

In order to keep her secrets, Alicia has to tell yet more lies and when a devastating car accident makes the situation even more dangerous, it’s only a matter of time before everything falls apart. Can secrets really stay hidden forever?

A Recipe for Disaster by Belinda Missen

I loved this sweet light-hearted romance. Perfect summer holiday read!

The story is a simple tale of two people, perfect for each other, torn apart by life circumstances.

It is a perfect read on the beach, or travelling or even just sitting in the garden! Easy to pick up and read a few pages and then go off and do whatever needs doing, to return later and pick up where you left off. The story is fun and easy going and has you thinking “will they, won’t they” all the way through….

I have a sweet tooth and reading all about Lucy’s cakes (and icing) was not good for my diet – but ohhh I do love a sweet romance!

I have not read Belinda Missen previously but I do like her style and will have her on my reading list going forward. This is Belinda Missen’s first book (of a six book deal) with HQDigital UK (HarperCollins) and I am eagerly awaiting the next release!

Synopsis

Life’s not always a piece of cake…

Meet Lucy, master wedding cake baker, idealistic school canteen crusader, and someone whose broken heart just won’t seem to mend…

 Lucy is quietly confident that she has made the right choices in life. Surrounded by friends and family in a small country town, Lucy can easily suppress the feeling that something is missing from her life.

 But when a blast from the past arrives in the form of her estranged husband, international celebrity chef Oliver Murray, Lucy’s carefully constructed life begins to crumble beneath her like overbaked meringue.

 Is Oliver’s return all business or is it motivated by something more?
