Someone Else's Skin (DI Marnie Rome #1) by Sarah Hilary

Some secrets keep you safe, others will destroy you...

Detective Inspector Marnie Rome. Dependable; fierce; brilliant at her job; a rising star in the ranks. Everyone knows how Marnie fought to come back from the murder of her parents, but very few know what is going on below the surface. Because Marnie has secrets she won't share with anyone.

But then so does everyone. Certainly those in the women's shelter Marnie and Detective Sergeant Noah Jake visit on that fateful day. The day when they arrive to interview a resident, only to find one of the women's husbands, who shouldn't have been there, lying stabbed on the floor.

As Marnie and Noah investigate the crime further, events begin to spiral and the violence escalates. Everyone is keeping secrets, some for survival and some, they suspect, to disguise who they really are under their skin.

Now, if Marnie is going to find the truth she will have to face her own demons head on. Because the time has come for secrets to be revealed...

I would like to thank Sarah Hilary for writing a great starter to a series that I think will be marvelous.  I found the characters rather weird  at times. Not knowing where some of them are going. 

DI Marnie Rome is a woman on a mission, but her past keeps haunting her to the extent of her job.

FBOM by E.M. Bosso

There is no pain like the loss of a child. When that pain can be directed at one group, in the hands of a dark and brilliant zealot, there are no prisoners no survivors; only a wake of destruction and damnation.

This is the story of one such man, the woman who loves him, the detective who hates him, and the country girl who understands him far too well. Who will come out on top as they interact in the dark and dangerous world of wealthy sons. Mob bosses and corrupt politicians?

This is a fast paced, dark, brutal story that may trigger some individuals who have experienced abuse, rape, or violence in their own lives. If you are one… know that people care; people want to stand by you and share their strength giving you hope and love and tenderness.

If you are one of the predators… also know… the Foundation for the Betterment Of Man is coming soon…

I was given this book to review from the author. I will say that the storyline is hard going at times due to the nature of the book. But it's an insight to what happens and who is out there to help.

Took me a while to get into the book and ended up reading it on my phone as the quotes wasn't looking right on my kindle. It's one man's mission to clear the scum off the earth with his Foundation. I found it really eye-opening into what happens when people go vigilante and the help that is out there for victims.

The Sister by Louise Jensen

Grace hasn't been the same since the death of her best friend Charlie. She is haunted by Charlie's words, the last time she saw her, and in a bid for answers, opens an old memory box of Charlie's. It soon becomes clear there was a lot she didn't know about her best friend. 

When Grace starts a campaign to find Charlie's father, Anna, a girl claiming to be Charlie's sister steps forward. For Grace, finding Anna is like finding a new family, and soon Anna has made herself very comfortable in Grace and boyfriend Dan's home. 

But something isn't right. Things disappear, Dan's acting strangely and Grace is sure that someone is following her. Is it all in Grace's mind? Or as she gets closer to discovering the truth about both Charlie and Anna, is Grace in terrible danger? 

There was nothing she could have done to save Charlie ...or was there?

I would like to thank Netgalley, Bookouture and the author Louise Jensen for allowing me to read this book. 

Sorry it took me so long to read it, but I had no clue what I was letting myself in for when I started this book. Well what can I say about this book that will make you understand what you're getting into lol. Well it had me guessing who the sister was? Who's sister they was? What happened when they were children?

All will be revealed when you read THE SISTER by Louise Jensen. It'll keep you up at night with thoughts past bedtime.
