    Alice a journalist is sent a threatening note that she will be cut by a cheese wire, but this is not the first note she has received and strangely it always occurs on a Wednesday After several threats, her husband Tom employs Matthew a private investigator to keep her safe and discover who the culprit is.Mathew discovers that Alice is keeping her own secrets, is the stalker something to do with her past or has she upset someone regarding an article she has written.The story alternates between the present time and the past In the past we are introduced to a small boy living with his gran,he loves his gran and hates the fact that she has to leave him on his own one night a week, so that she can work in a care home These chapters kept me engrossed and guessing what happened to this little chap This is a very gripping book with plenty of twists and red herrings along the way I constantly changed my mind who the stalker was.Beautifully written with a mixture of suspense and a heart wrenching story of love for a mother who does not have much time left When Alice describes the love she feels for her mother I could not help but tear up, at the strong bond between them.Thank you to Netgalley for my copy in exchange for a review.

    4 5 stars I really enjoyed this book and had it not been for some reservations about the ending I would have given it 5 stars The story was intriguing from the start as the truth gradually emerged over who and why Alice was being stalked The author captured well the range of emotions that victims would go through as the threats to Alice escalated and her sense of paranoia and suspicion grew of those around her, as she felt increasingly vulnerable I really liked that Alice s overriding concern was for her sick mother and the love that Alice and her sister Leanne felt shone through clearly There were times when the panic Alice felt were vividly portrayed, in particular there was a very scary scene on a train where the tension was palpable I really enjoyed the repeating characters from previous books although it s perfectly possible to read this as a standalone Matthew Hill, former police turned PI was involved as was now heavily pregnant DI Melanie Sanders and the friendship they shared was a nice element to the book There were occasional flashes of dark humour, I was especially amused by the issues that one of Matthews clients had with European Lilliputians Matthew s kindness to this client was wonderful Throughout the book I had constant questions which I liked I felt a range of emotions over the Him sections from terrible sadness to horror at what he must have suffered but also helplessness as you knew that there was nothing to stop the volcanic eruption of his rage The storytelling was good straightforward, nothing unnecessary and just got on with the narrative which I think is a major plus I really like Teresa Driscoll s books and thought this one was especially good.Thanks to NetGalley and Publishing for an ARC

    3.5 stars rounded up I Will Make You Pay is a light thriller about a woman whose life s turned upside down after receiving a threatening phone call The story is well paced and the characters are well developed, especially within the Him parts where my interest mainly lay I liked the writing and the police procedural aspect, which helped the storyline to run smoothly.There were a few shocks I absolutely hadn t seen coming I didn t find the ending to be completely mind blowing but it is definitely satiating, especially for readers who are new to the genre There s a dash of predictability that creeps up within the final chapters of the book, leaning towards the emotional aspect of the strong bond between journalist Alice and her mother What I still memorize from this read is the fear that was instilled in our protagonist, and what it was like for her to live with that dreadful sense of terror I admired the fact that the author, like the protagonist herself, is a reporter And she drew inspiration from one of her own life experiences I m definitely curious to see what this author writes next.

    Well what can I say after abandoning J.P Delaney s last book, The Perfect Wife , I tried my luck once again with Teresa Driscoll I ve already read I Am Watching You which I had to put down before the second half of the novel, as I found it to be lackluster and tedious as well as unoriginal This one has a common story premise too, a young woman who starts receiving messages from an unknown person who seems eager to cause her harm and so the plot begins to unravel, the main mystery lying in the possible reasons that the anonymous sender might have As usual, the answer can be found only if one delves into the protagonist s past which is full of secrets.Unfortunately, I had to stop reading I Will Make You Pay after the first third of the novel, as the story was dragging on and the plot was almost non existent It is a typical novel of a specific crime fiction sub genre, slanting towards psychological thriller The characters are bland, a fact that adds to the overall mundane feeling that this book exudes I couldn t identify with any of the main characters while the story left me cold Actually, I can honestly say that I couldn t care less for what happens next in the tedious plotline, thus I decided not to waste any of my precious time on this book and move on to something better.It goes without saying, that this is strictly my personal opinion and nothing I am sure that there are many readers who will enjoy I Will Make You Pay , especially those who are not so demanding when choosing a crime novel It is the sad truth that the right chemistry between the author and the reader is sometimes very hard to reach due to the subjective nature of the literal taste.

    What can one say other than you never know what you have till it s gone Sometimes things aren t as they appear and Alice may just be one of those cases.Sure it appears she s a target of a madman but what if it s all in appearances Perhaps her past is cloudy at best and there s to this entire story than meets the eye.Perhaps hiring a private eye is helpful but in this case we alternate between two story lines the present and the past with equal pressure to solve it.In the past we have a young man living with his gran and she truly is upset she must leave him to tend to her other job tending to patients in a care home.What s left to say other than there s plenty of twists and turns here.Get this one ASAP
