Hello and welcome to damppebbles. It’s Monday which means I’m sharing another brilliant #R3COMM3ND3D2018 post with you today. I am delighted to welcome the lovely Karen to the blog. Karen blogs over at Go Buy The Book (very sage advice!) so if you’re a crime fan then I suggest you head on over and hit the subscribe button ASAP.
What’s #R3COMM3ND3D? #R3COMM3ND3D gives bookish types (authors, book bloggers and those who work in publishing) the opportunity to shout about three books they love. There’s a catch though. They must be from a specific year. At the moment we’re sharing the 2018 book love but from 1st November, #R3COMM3ND3D will be all about this year’s brilliant books. If you fall into one of the aforementioned categories and you would like to take part in this year’s #R3COMM3ND3D then please add your details to the form at the bottom of this post.
Without further ado, here are Karen’s choices….
Don’t Make a Sound (DS Nathan Cody #3) by David Jackson
I love a book with a huge curveball and this one was bigger than most! A very clever plot that made me question everything I had read. This is definitely my book of the year.
Dying Truth (DI Kim Stone #8) by Angela Marsons
The books in the Kim Stone series are all excellent, but there was something even more special about this one… even if Angela Marsons did leave us all aghast by one of the events!
The Stranger Diaries by Elly Griffiths
A spooky murder-mystery from the author of the Ruth Galloway and Stephens & Mephisto novels. Very atmospheric, this is a perfect read for a dark autumnal night.
Thanks so much, Karen. I adore David Jackson’s DS Nathan Cody series so I’m delighted to see Don’t Make a Sound on your list. I also love the DI Kim Stone series (but I’ve fallen behind and haven’t read Dying Truth yet). And The Stranger Diaries is going straight on the wish list!
If Karen has managed to tempt you, or if you would like to find out more about the books she recommends, please see the following links:
An avid reader of crime fiction and non-fiction who also likes to dabble in genealogical mysteries and psychological thrillers. I blame Enid Blyton and her ‘Five Find-Outers’ books which were read numerous times as a child!
