REVIEW 5⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Wow! This is one of the best book I read this year. I love the writer style and how the chapter where chosen. There is so many tragedies and revelations and the ending was just brilliant. I did not see it coming. I had so many outcomes in mind but I was totally blown away. I will love to see this book on TV series next.

SYNOPSIS

1943. Sleeper spy Will Starling has been drafted in to the SOE, joining forces with the French Resistance in the fight against the Nazis; but Will’s memory is fractured and only occasional flashbacks reveal fragments of his past. Despite this, he has not forgotten his pledge to find and rescue his sister, Rose – if she is still alive. When his mission in France is compromised, Will suspects he’s been betrayed.

Back in London he hears that VIPER are in league with the Axis powers and are developing a new and deadly weapon. As he and MI5 agent Anna Wilder set out to destroy it, their every move is anticipated by their enemies. Who is the mole in the British Secret Service? As they close in on VIPER’s Swiss headquarters, it seems no one can be trusted. Are Will and Anna able to prevent the unleashing of the Red Storm that will bring mass destruction on a scale even the Nazis haven’t dreamt of?

While Will tries to save the world, Rose has become the key to VIPER’s future plans and is drugged to dull her kinetic powers. But Rose faces danger from an unexpected enemy and her time is running out.

 

REVIEW 5⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Sleeper The Red Storm is a fantastic book, as I read Sleeper (book1) previously I was familiar with the story and characters. There is some nostalgia at the start of the book which got me a bit emotional (about Outcast, a fisherman boat mentionned in JD Fennell previous book).There is always something exciting to read from one chapter to another and never a dull moment. The story unfolds beautifully well with awesome and unique characters. I also loved that the story is set in different Europeans locations.
What I really enjoyed about this book is all the enigma surrounding the story, all the wow moments especially towards the end of the book which left me utterly surprise and excited that another book will come next (hopefully 😀)I will recommend Sleeper The Red Storm to any fan of Dan Brown, JD Fennell storytelling is quite unique to himself and you most definitely won’t want to put this book down until the last page.

But will Francine get her daughter back – or is it too late?

REVIEW ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This is one of the most difficult book I read in a long time.

I know where she is a book well written and got me gripped from the beginning with my heart pounding every time I turned a page.

Through the start I discovered about Francine and Will, their past relationship, the kidnapping of their daughter 10 years on.

What I love about this book is the length Francine, an heartbroken mother go to found her daughter which is admirable and heartbreaking at the same time.

The story unfold with some no so pleasant characters as they hold the key to Autumn kidnapping. Some part of the book which are explicit are quite hard to read at time.

While the story unfold with Francine wanting answers no matter what and acting impulsively, I could not stop reading as I wanted her to found peace.

I did found the epilogue very emotional and the ending of the book hint like they could be a sequel. I will definitely will be reading more books from S.B Caves.

Thank you to Netgallery and Canelo for my copy of I know where she is. All opinions are my own.

Exposure

SYNOPSIS

You know that feeling. Your life’s on track and all is going well. And then something monumental occurs that turns everything on its head. It happens to everyone but, for Kristin Ryder, it was much, much worse . . .

When up-and-coming photographer Kristin begins to receive anonymous emails, her life in a trendy loft in London’s Hoxton with Anton, her ultra-cool, street-artist boyfriend, suddenly begins to feel unsafe. The emails come with sinister attachments that suggest the sender has an intimate knowledge of Kristin’s past, and soon her life spirals out of control.

Who can she trust? And will she be able to discover the sender’s identity before it’s too late?

Breathtaking and shocking, Exposure by Aga Lesiewicz will grip you until the last snap of the camera shutter.

 

REVIEW ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

My rating 5 stars

Wow! I was completely hooked from start to finish. From chapter to chapter there was always a suspense. I found the book exciting and very well writing. I was gripped to the end. I loved the different characters which some like Vero put a smile on my face. I found the storyline great and I did not found out who the stalker was until email Exposure 5. Love the different sex scenes in the book as it makes it more real and human.
The book really shows you that everything is not what it seems and even if you don’t like someone they may pleasantly surprise you.
Last time I enjoy a book so much was Conclave by Richard Harris. Exposure is an incredible read and I can’t wait to discover more books from Aga.
