In the Blink of an Eye | Jo Callaghan

I‘ve been on the fence about this, but the author is at the Harrogate Crime Writing Festival in July and I‘m trying to read as many authors as I can before I go.

It was the AI Detective in this that was putting me off, and to start with it made the book feel quite YA, with it being a hologram. After a while though, the twisty storyline overtook that element, and the AI became less ‘obvious‘.

There is a sequel, which I now think I‘ll read.

julesG It sounds interesting. I'll stack it. 2h

Bryn is in a terrible car crash that leaves the driver.dead and goes to live with her new husband once she‘s out of the hospital to convalesce. (They live in different towns.) Things seem ok until a local woman is murdered and Bryn learns maybe she doesn‘t know her husband very well. I enjoyed this mystery—I thought it was well-crafted with a good number of red herrings. I would definitely read White again.

Crazeedi Sounds good! 9h

This was a lot of fun! A dark and twisty serial killer story. I thought I had it figured but I was wrong 🤷🏻‍♀️ Anytime I wasn‘t reading, I was thinking about the story. And whenever I was reading, the pages turned fast. I definitely want to read more by Hillier.

The Author‘s Note in the back of the book mentions that Hillier‘s other books are standalones set in the same fictional world with a few crossover characters-sounds fun!

intothehallofbooks I received an early digital copy of this book long ago via NetGalley in exchange for review, and I finally got around to reading it. Better late than never. I let it sit on my digital shelf for far too long! 1w

#BookReport 20/24

An eclectic mix of books this week. A thriller, A literary novel, a horror/ true crime and a historical fantasy! It felt good to stir things up a bit.
This weeks favorite is Six Stories.

I just love this series more and more as I go along. This is number 4, and Kim finds herself and her team investigating a serial killer who‘s leaving victims on a “body farm” viciously beaten and stabbed. This one has some surprises and a reappearance of a possible love interest for Kim. Love these characters, stories and humor in these books. Recommended. 4.5/5⭐️

I started listening to this earlier today and it grabbed me right away. I think I‘ll fly thru it if it continues to be twisty and dark.

January LaVoy is narrating and she is fantastic.

Nate walked the artwork over to a blank spot on the wall that he‘d prepared for it. As he did, he knew one thing for sure. Sam would have loved it.
