It is my great pleasure to welcome the lovely Claire Knight to damppebbles today. Claire has been the awesome guest reviewer over at CrimeBookJunkie for a while now, alongside the fabulous Noelle Holten, and joins me today to share her #R3COMM3ND3D2017 reads.
#R3COMM3ND3D2017 is a chance for book bloggers, reviewers and authors to share three recommended reads. Three must-read books they want to share with the rest of us. The only stipulation being, the books must have been published in 2017.
Here are Claire’s choices…
Enter the Dark by Chris Thomas
Oh Lordy, this book!!! It is so different and dark. Every time I think about it, it draws me back in! The concept of the book is justice but not a form of justice that you have seen before. Live broadcast justice on the dark web. It’s just ingenious!
Maria in the Moon by Louise Beech
This is not exactly a crime novel, but it’s a dark and emotional read. I adore Louise Beech’s writing, it’s addictive. She’s not someone to be pigeonholed, she is in a genre of her own!
Forget Me Not by Kierney Scott
Alongside the Jake Boulder series by Graham Smith, this book has reignited my interest in Stateside crime novels. This book is brutal with the murders, packed with tension and a total rollercoaster! How is this the author’s first crime novel?
Awesome recommendations, thank you Claire. I’ve already downloaded ‘Enter the Dark’ thanks to your mini review above. Sounds just my cup of tea! And ‘Forget Me Not’ is now on the wishlist. (And I also loved ‘Maria in the Moon – pretty much a full house really!)
If Claire has managed to tempt you or if you would like to find out more about the books she recommends then please see the following amazon.co.uk links:

I’m Claire and I’m a guest reviewer over at Crimebookjunkie. I have loved crime fiction since I discovered the secret seven and famous five before moving onto true crime and then into the more adult crime fiction.

Watch out for Claire’s very own blog coming to the internet on 1st February. We’re sad you’re leaving CrimeBookJunkie Claire, but can’t wait to see your brand spanking new blog!
My thanks to Claire for joining me today. Make sure you stop for the penultimate #R3COMM3ND3D2017 tomorrow when I welcome author Jonathan Mark.

Enter The Dark narrowly missed out on my list of top books last year. So good!
