#R3COMM3ND3D2019 with #Author Rachel Sargeant (@RachelSargeant3) @KillerReads @0neMoreChapter_ #TheRoommates #damppebbles #BookRecommendations #Publishedin2019

Hello my bookish friends and welcome to damppebbles. Before I go any further I would like to wish all of my American followers a very happy Thanksgiving. Have a wonderful day!

I am delighted to welcome a brilliant author to share the #R3COMM3ND3D2019 book love with us today, the very lovely Rachel Sargeant. But before we start talking about other people’s books, I would like to take this opportunity to wish Rachel and the HarperCollins team a very happy publication day. Rachel’s latest book, The Roommates is published in paperback today! I’ll tell you everything you need to know about The Roommates in a few short ticks.

So, what is #R3COMM3ND3D2019? It’s about sharing the book love. It’s a chance for authors and book bloggers to shout about three (yes, *only* three) books they love. They can be written by any author, in any genre and published in any way (traditionally, indie press or self-published). But there is a catch. All three books must have been published in 2019. To make things interesting I have added a couple of teeny, tiny rules this year which are; 1) the book must have first been published in 2019 and 2) special editions and reissues do not count. I like to keep you lovely people on your toes ๐Ÿ˜‰.

Here are the three books Rachel recommends…

once upon a river

Once Upon a River by Diane Setterfield
I read this back in February but it’s stayed with me ever since. A simply beautiful read with delightful characters and a hint of wry humour.
Rachel’s Review of Once Upon a River

All the Little Lies by Chris Curran
I envy Chris Curran’s knack of writing believable, likeable protagonists. The reader really cares about Eve and Stella. The story is set in the art world and comes with a suitably stylish and dramatic climax.
Rachel’s Review of All the Little Lies

The Poison Garden by Alex Marwood
I’ve a feeling this one is going to stick in my head forever. The writing is sharp and perfect for the damaged characters portrayed. An unsettling and hard-hitting thriller with much to say on the theme of indoctrination โ€“ before, during and after, if indeed โ€œafterโ€ exists.
Rachel’s Review of The Poison Garden

Wonderful choices, thank you so much, Rachel. A couple of additions to the wishlist for me too, I think.

โ€˜Gripping, original and unpredictableโ€™ Alex Lake

โ€œTwisty and unnerving, Rachel is back with a thriller that will keep you up all night. Her best novel yet!โ€™ Phoebe Morgan

โ€˜From the very first page, the intrigue of this page-turning mystery builds until the gripping climaxโ€™ Caroline England
