Books read in 2022
I read alot more than I review so I thought I’d try and keep a list of all books I read (or want to read) this year.
Whilst I only review crime fiction, I’m always happy to hear about other books worth a read so get in touch if you have any suggestions!
Very much enjoyed this novel by Claire Mackintosh. A New Years Eve party at an exclusive lake side lodge ends in murder and every one there is a suspect.
I absolutely loved this excellent debut. It was a gripping tale of friendship obsession and the desire to fit into the world around you.
Another tale where morals are tested. A woman is about to get married when she realises that her life wasn’t always what she thought.
Utterley absorbing, heartbreaking story of love and lose, set against the background of the war in Syria. The story is both terribly sad yet hopeful. A must read for all.
True story of a woman taken in by a con artist she met online. If it wasn’t true I would say it was completely unbelievable.
A really good story introducing FBI profiler Eva. When she moves back to her home town she is soon embroiled in a missing child case and crimes that will come to haunt her. Really enjoyed it.
A great mystery set in a block of apartments full of lies and secrets/ When a man goes missing his sister starts the search but things are not all that they seem.
The Butcher and the Wren byAlaina Urquhart was a good debut set in Louisiana as a serial killer wrecks havoc, whilst the medical examiner tries to catch him. A great read.
This was a lovely little read that I really enjoyed. It inspired me to re-read some classic stories. It also made me want to go and work in a library, it was a really lovely book.
A story that’s worth reading and re-reading regularly.
This was another from Harrogate. A serial killer is copying other serial killers. I loved this debut, that was disturbing and absolutely gripping
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Sometimes you just need a bit of romance and comedy, always expertly provided by Marian Keynes
I had this on my tbr for ages and can’t believe it took me so long. This was a great story, I would highly recommend and look forward to reading the rest of the series.
Last read of 2022 was the latest from one of my favourite authors. James Bond meets serial killers. Another great read and an excellent way to end the year.
