February Book Round-up

I reviewed 4 books in February – 1 historical fiction, and three thrillers.    Below is a little information on each of them.  For my full review, follow the links, or go direct to EmmabBooks.com where they are all on the Home Page

V2 by Robert Harris

Link to review: V2 by Robert Harris

This historical fiction attracted me as I’ve heard of the V2 bombs but know little about them.  I love Robert Harris’s blend of fact and fiction, and this book has German characters building and launching the V2s and British ones trying to stop them.  A great read that portrays the many differing human sides of this war – 5*s from me.

Not My Daughter by Suzy K Quinn

I listened to this thriller as an audio book and the narrator (Helen Keeley) really brought the characters alive.  Lorna has been keeping a secret for 16 years, but now questions are being asked, and Lorna is scared of the repercussions if her secret is revealed – or is she being  paranoid?  Kept me guessing throughout.

The Passengers by John Marrs

Link to my review: The Passengers by John Marrs

This thriller is set in the near future where most people are using cars that drive themselves.  Stress free and safe one would think – unless a hacker sets 8 cars on a collision course, and gives the public the chance to save just one of them.  Another great idea from this author – but nothing is going to beat The One by John Marrs for me (which, incidentally, is coming to Netflix on 12th March)

Cry for Help by Wendy Dranfield

Link to review: Cry for Help by Wendy Dranfield

This is the second book in the Detective Madison Harper series – I read and reviewed the first book in the series, Shadow Falls, in January of this year.   This time Madison is back in her hometown looking for who killed her ex-girlfriend, and also wanting to find her son, who  Madison has not seen since she was imprisoned for murder.  This can be read as a stand alone thriller, but I really recommend reading Shadow Falls first to get the full backgrounds of the main characters.

All the best, Emma
