My Husband's Wife by Jane Corry

There's a fine line between love...and murder.
When lawyer Lily marries Ed, she's determined to make a fresh start. To leave the secrets of the past behind.
But then she meets Joe. A convicted murderer who Lily is strangely drawn to. Who she will soon be willing to risk anything for.
But is he really innocent?
And who is she to judge?

Perfect for readers of Liane Moriarty and Clare Mackintosh, get hooked on the story that everyone's talking about.

I would like to thank Netgalley and the publishers for allowing me to read this ARC copy in exchange for an honest review.
When this was recommended to me for reading, I was like jumping at the bit to read it as I've liked reading Liane Moriarty book and Clare Mackintosh books in the past. Well I can honestly say this wasn't grabbing me till about 83% in the story. Could be due to the part that the characters I wasn't meshing with in the storyline. It was all confusing swapping between the 2 main female characters. I kept asking myself will it get any better. What are they to do with each other? Who are these other characters and what have they got to do with this story. 
It became apparent later as the story carried on who they were and what role they played. It was as it got to the ending that I was understanding the storyline. I look forward to seeing what the next book this author writes as she has a great understanding of the autism spectrum and other things going on in the world.

Liar Liar (Helen Grace #4) by M.J. Arlidge

Detective Helen Grace gets caught in an inferno of death and destruction in the red-hot new thriller from the author of Eeny MeenyPop Goes the Weasel, and The Doll’s House

Detective Helen Grace has never seen such destruction. Six fires in twenty-four hours. Two people dead. Several more injured. It’s as if someone wants to burn the city to the ground...

With the whole town on high alert, Helen and her team must sift through the rubble to find the arsonist, someone whose thirst for fire—and control—is reducing entire lives to ashes. 

One misstep could mean Helen’s career—and more lives lost. And as the pressure mounts and more buildings burn, Helen’s own dark impulses threaten to consume her…

I want to thank M.J. Arlidge for allowing me to read this wonderful series so far.

When I started Liar Liar, I wasn't sure what the arsons was to do with the storyline, but as it got further in, it was alarmingly worrisome that people are setting fires for no apparent reason. Helen accusing someone and that someone from that group is accusing her of stuff. It makes intriguing reading for goes on inside the mind of an arsonist.

I can't wait to read Little Boy Blue to see what else happens with Helen Grace next and what is her superior up to. All will be revealed in Liar Liar.

The Woman in Black (Jessica Daniel #3) by Kerry Wilkinson

Someone has left a severed hand in the centre of Manchester and the only clue Detective Sergeant Jessica Daniel has to go on is CCTV footage of a woman in a long black robe placing it carefully on the ground.

With a lengthy missing persons list and frantic families wondering if the body part could belong to their absent loved ones, the detective has plenty to deal with – and that’s before a detached finger arrives for her in the post.

By the time a second hand is found and a local MP’s wife goes missing, Jessica is left struggling to find out who the appendages
belong to, how they are connected and just what the mysterious woman in black has to do with it all.

I would like to thank Kerry Wilkinson for writing a great series so far. The pages turning and the twists in the storylines you'd never have guessed. Also having 2 storylines in a brilliant book is so imaginative and down right good.

The Woman In Black makes you think with all the twists and turns of the story. Two different stories that divide the whole team down the middle. Where is the local MP's wife and who is the woman in black has the Manchester Police chasing their tails with the local media hanging around 1 particular scene when the other needs the coverage just as bad. What happens with DS Jessica Daniels social life as her best friend's wedding is coming up. Will she catch the killer in time?
