The Last Party by Clare Mackintosh

The Last Party is the new novel by Clare Mackintosh, which was published recently. Regular readers of my book reviews will know that Clare Mackintosh is one of my favourite authors, so I was very keen to read it. I refuse to buy full price hardbacks, which can be a problem when I book comes out that I really want to read. Sainsbury’s often comes up trumps for me, but it didn’t have The Last Party. Luckily I saw someone...

Hostage by Clare Mackintosh

Clare Mackintosh is one of my favourite authors, so I was very excited to read Hostage, her fifth novel, which was published recently. I was also very excited to find it for £6 in Sainsbury’s because I don’t like to pay hardback prices! Clare Mackintosh writes the most amazing thrillers based around families.

A Cotswold Family Life by Clare Mackintosh

A few weeks ago, I went to see Clare Mackintosh speak at our local Waterstones. Clare Mackintosh is one of my favourite authors.

But she wasn’t talking about her fantastic thrillers at Watersones, she was talking about her new book, A Cotswold Family Life. This is a collection of writing about family life in the Cotswolds (it does exactly...

Let Me Lie by Clare Mackintosh

I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh was one of my absolute favourite reads of last year, with her second novel, I See You, not far behind. So when I saw her latest novel, Let Me Lie, in the airport on the way to Copenhagen, I knew I had to grab it! And I wasn’t disappointed. A year on from her mother’s suicide, new mum Anna is still coming to terms with it. Caroline Johnson threw herself off a cliff, just months after her...
