In this month’s Thrill Seeker Case from Bookcase.club I received The Girl On The Train and The Promise. I have been wanting to read them both for some time, so a HUGE thank you to Bookcase.club for being so intuitive.
The Girl On The Train By: Paula Hawkins
Rachel’s life is ordinary. She takes the same train to and from her job in London. The only seemingly bright spot in her daily routine is the couple that she has named Jess and Jason. A couple with whom she feels she knows. She enjoys watching Jess and Jason and imagines what their lives must be like. Not to long ago she lived only houses down and her life seemed perfect. Loving husband, beautiful home….
But, now she must be satisfied living vicariously through Jess and Jason. They seem so in love, so smitten and so happy. Until, she sees something that she can not un-see. what happened? Will life ever be the same again? Grab your copy and find out why this book has so many five star ratings and is now a major motion picture.
At times this book can be a tad confusing, it has a rather unique POV. So my advice is to take it slow and really immerse yourself into Rachel’s world. Just when you think that you have a clue. you don’t. With so many twists and turns it is hard to put this book down.
Absolutely a must read for any thriller fan. It keeps you in its grips and does not let you go until the very last page. Take it slow with this one because it has a unique point of view and it becomes easy to get confused. I honestly could not put it down and spent many late nights reading until the wee hours. It is a story that is easy to become a part of and you grow fond of the characters. I highly recommend this book.
The Promise By: Robert Crais
Elvis and Joe are back in a high octane thriller!
Joining Elvis Cole and Joe Pike on this adventure is LAPD k-9 officer Scott James and his German Shepherd Maggie. Loyal and committed when Elvis and Joe make a promise, they keep it. even if that promise could ultimately get them killed. Elvis is hired to find a mother and is sent a ordinary house, that’s not so ordinary. Inside are a desperate fugitive and a dangerous criminal. With helicopters flying overhead LAPD K-9 officer Scott James and his partner (German Shepherd) Maggie are also headed to the house. Tracking down Mr. Rollins, a deadly criminal who leaves death in his wake. The night has only just begun and the foursome have a long road ahead of them. Will this be Elvis and Joe’s last adventure? Grab a copy and find out!
Started out slow and I wanted to give up. I’m glad that I stuck in there. Once it picked up the pace it literally would not let me put it down. I read at all hours, even while eating. That is a testament to just how good this book is. Elvis and Joe are two of the most loyal and lovable characters from any book that I have read. Thoroughly enjoyed their interactions with Scott James and Maggie. Just a good over all read and I without a doubt recommend that you give this one a read.
Both of these books were so hard to put down and I found myself waking in the middle of the night just to read. Both were totally different, but equally enjoyable. The Girl On The Train grabs you from the first page. The Promise may take some time to get going but once it does, it doesn’t stop.
