Like, Follow, Kill by Carissa Ann Lynch

After hearing of this book from a fellow blogger ( Dita take a bow) I thought what the hell I don't have enough cray  cray in my life. This book is a cup full of cray and then some. Dark, twisted, weird.

What happens when you spend too much time on social media and not enough time interacting with humans? Hmm well perhaps we should take a look. Camilla Brown has not had an easy year. She is coping with a horrific car accident that claimed her husband's life and left her with some serious injuries- inside and out. Throw in dealing with addictions, little family support and lack of self esteem. She turns to the almighty internet and allows her life to be lived through the lives of others.

Camilla's main person she likes to stalk, I mean follow, is a classmate from high school named Valerie. Her and Val are BFF's (even though Valerie doesn't know it). As Camilla becomes more and more immersed in Val's life she watches Val disappear after a worrisome live feed. Was Val abducted? This may indeed push Camilla over the edge.

Holy talking decapitated heads- this is one fast, crazy read. I enjoyed taking this crazy train along with Camilla and seeing what she would do next. I can't say much more as it is just too hard to explain. Plus I don't want to spoil it for you!

Many thanks to Harper Impulse/ Killer Reads, One More Chapter for this ARC!!!

Four Christmases and a Secret by Zara Stoneley

Four Christmases and a Secret
It’s the most wonderful time of the year…
Except for Daisy Christmas means another of Uncle T’s dreaded Christmas parties, complete with Christmas jumper and flashing antlers.  And Oliver Cartwright.  Gorgeous Oliver Cartwright. Who she hates.
Every year Daisy has to face insufferable Ollie and hear all about how BRILLIANT he is.  Whereas Daisy has no job, no man and no idea how to fix things.
This Christmas however Daisy is determined things will be different.  There will be no snogging Ollie under the mistletoe like when they were teenagers.  No, this year she’ll show Ollie that she’s a Responsible Adult too.

But as the champagne corks pop, and the tinsel sparkles, Uncle T has news of his own to share…and it could change Daisy's life forever…

My Thoughts

It is never too early for Christmas! Zara Stoneley is quickly taking a place on my shelf of "must read" authors. That is why I jumped at the chance to read her latest book. This book was a delight to read and I must tell you even though it has the word Christmas in the title, this is a perfect feel good read for anytime of the year.

Daisy just found out she is losing her boyfriend, her dog (rest assured nothing happens to the dog) and  her job. She just might lose her darn mind. What always cheers her up is the annual Christmas get together at Uncle Terrence's bookstore. One event that brings her family and friends together to share in the holiday cheer.

Yet every Christmas party year after year she has to endure hearing of Ollie Cartwright and how flipping perfect he is. Vera (Ollie's mom) and Daisy's mom are BFF's. Daisy is constantly having to hear how Ollie is a doctor and how geeky Ollie is so accomplished. Daisy admits to perhaps being a bit competitive and jealous of Ollie but she doesn't see what the buzz is all about. Until Ollie walks in the door after 13 years......whoa Ollie is hot!

I absolutely loved Daisy! She is witty and has a wicked sense of humor. This book had just the right amount of "rom" and just the right about of "com". I found it highly entertaining and endearing. I flew right through this in a mere day as I couldn't wait to find out what would happen to our quirky two main characters. Would they find love or would they find they just had too much history that would in the end push them apart?

Thank you so much To Rachel from Rachael's Random Resources and Zara Stoneley for having me along on this fabulously fun tour!
