Just finished The Cold Cold Ground (Detective Sean Duffy 1) which I enjoyed but I would have liked to know what some of the Irish sayings meant! Just starting The Debt.

What did you not understand Princess? I haven't read the book but I'll try to translate for you.
I just finished Vanishing Point by Danielle Ramsay. I wasn't really fussed on it to be honest. It wasn't so bad that I couldn't finish it but I found it repetitive and boring in parts and the end left some things unanswered. I was disappointed because I really liked her first book Broken Silence (DI Jack Brady). Think I'll try a freebie next, maybe Suicide Serial, no longer free.

Just finished - The Little Victim - rather surreal crime novel set mainly in Goa

Just started - Pegasus Falling (The Cypress Branches Trilogy) - I've read about 30% of this so far and it puts many Indie authors to shame. It's not my usual genre at all but I'm finding it really good. It's the first part of a trilogy.

Just read Suicide Serial. It was quite a good story but because it was so short there was no real suspense or build up of tension. That would have made it much better. Also read The Righteous (Righteous Series #1) by Michael Wallace which I enjoyed very much. It deals with the murder of a young wife and mother living in a polygamous Mormon community and I found the details of this religion fascinating.

I have recently finished Happy Hour which was free at the time and only 77p now, well worth that, a good 'holiday read'.
I am now reading The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks. Have any of your read it? I wanted to read it before seeing the film this weekend. I will not have any trouble finishing it, puting it down, and getting on with something else, will be the problem - I'm at 72% and hooked. Well worth reading.

Hi Fi esta can you let me know after you've finished the book if it is still a good read. I would like to read it like you before seeing the film.

Will do, I'll be very suprised if it becomes disappointing, so far, so very good...

I've been away from this thread for a while. anyway, over recent weeks, I've finished:
The Imperfect Tense by Mary Fitzgerald. really enjoyed this, though IMO I enjoyed Richard Wilde marginally more.
then read Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella which was a really nice story.
then went on to read Two Women by Martina Cole. I sometimes re-read one of the old Martina Cole books to remind myself how good she used to be.

Now reading Private Lives by Tasmina Perry. about a third of the way in and enjoying it so far. I'm also struggling through Salmon Fishing In The Yemen which I'm finding really hard going. stuck at about half way and don't know if I'll bother to read any further. :)

Suze says:
I thought Two Women was a good read, all of Martina Coles first books were good, but don't bother much with them these days. I think she's started to run out of ideas and they seemed too much the same.

Just finished The Fabric of Sin: A Merrily Watkins Mystery - which was another good one.

Just started Dead To The World: A True Blood Novel. I'm a fan of the TV series and started reading the original novels, but am waiting for each season of the TV version to finish before reading the corresponding book. However, in hindsight, this probably wasn't such a good idea. Although there are bare bones similarities, several of the characters on TV are either very different or have been killed off in the book, making this process awfully confusing!

@ S Morris and Suze I used to love reading Martina Cole's books but her latest releases haven't been as good.

I've just finished London Broil (Fractured Fairy Tales by Silkstone) a funny mystery that I enjoyed a lot. I'm in two minds what to read next, it's a toss up between Only the Innocent or The Nation's Daughter

I think she ran out of ideas a while ago to be honest. the last one I enjoyed was 'the take' which was made in to a sky 1 drama a few years back. the next few were teribly bad so I stopped reading them.

Steven says:
well I've read Only the Inocent and can highly recommend.

Just finished Secrets to Die For (Detective Jackson Mystery/Thriller #1)

And moved onto the next book in the series Thrilled to Death (A Detective Jackson Mystery/Thriller)

I thought the first one was brilliant and I am so far not disappointed in the second. Looks like a good series for those who like detective stories

Just finished Green Grow the Rushes, got it as a freebie. Have just downloaded Daughters of Blane by the same author (had to pay for it).
Forcing myself not to read it until next week when i will be on holiday.

Just finished the last of L.J. Sellers books. Only discovered her last week, she's really good, I'm a big Deaver,Patterson and P.Cornwall fan and I do not understand why she isn't a big name.!!!!!!!

Just finished 'Me Before You' by Jo Jo Moyes and really loved it. It's a difficult subject but JoJo deals with it admirably.
It's one of those books that takes you through every possible emotion, leaves you drained and tearful, but somehow you enjoy it.
I'd definitely recommend this one :-)

Thanks so much for the lovely review and I hope you enjoy Blane! Harriet Smart

I also really like LJ Sellers, great characters and stories. Like Suze, Mel et al I used to love Martina Cole but the last couple I tried I didn't even finish. Different type of book but I also found this with the last couple of books by Patricia Cornwell.
I just finished The Lion, the Lamb, the Hunted: A Psychological Thriller by Andrew Kauffman and thought it was very good. I had planned to clear some of my freebies before downloading any more but it hasn't quite worked out that way.

Just started reading again (I was given a Kindle as a birthday present) and have just finished 11.22.63 and because of all the excellent freebies and cheaper books I have no idea what to read next although it may well be Killing Share (Michael Fielding Book 1)
