Closer Than You Think by Darren O'Sullivan

Review
The book starts with a prologue that draws the reader in and creates a fair amount of suspense as it is from the perspective of the Blackout Killer. The prologue describes the Blackout Killer, his thoughts, and one of his murders. The book then goes to start with Chapter one. The move from the prologue to the first chapter is a confusing one. There is no identification that the perspective is changing from that of the Blackout Killers to that of Claire Moore, his one and only survivor. The change between the Blackout Killers perspective and Claire Moore's is one that continues throughout the story. The chapters all identify the current date and location, but do not identify whose perspective that chapter is based off.
Once you read the prologue and move into the first few chapters of the book, it is somewhat disappointing. The prologue was filled with suspense and was fast paced, however, most of the book afterwards is slow moving and really hard to get into. The relationshi…

Something Hidden (Andrew Hunter, #2) by Kerry Wilkinson

Review
This is the first book that I have read by Kerry Wilkinson, so I was unsure what to expect. The story starts out strong and introduces you very quickly to the background story of what will eventually become the primary case that is being investigated by Andrew Hunter. Andrew is hired pro bono by Fiona Methodist to look into her father's case. Her father is deceased, but she refuses to believe that her father was responsible for the death of two young college students who were witness to a jewelry store robbery.

The complicated relationship dynamics that Kerry build into the story help to provide some airiness to what other wise is a sad story, when thinking of Fiona Methodist. There is the complicated and yet romantic relationship between Andrew and his ex-wife Keira, who he…

The Healthy Pregnancy Journal by Martha Sears RN, Hayden Sears MA

This journal is filled with a ton of information that is broken down by month and then week. It provides you information on what is currently going on with you and your baby. It has a very nice introduction that explains how they start counting, it is definitely a part of the journal you should not skip.
It is filled with multiple different activities that are related to the month/week that you are currently experiencing. It includes activities such as taking a picture of you bump, writing down your thoughts, drawing, etc.

As previously mentioned, it is a very informative book and is a great read. I highly recommend it and give it a 5 out of 5.
