Sleep Tight by Rachel Abbott

So, I did it.

It took a little longer than I intended, but I have finished my first book of 2016.  I have also added a considerable number of new ‘books that must be read’ to my collection.  #bookaholic  #oops

Sleep Tight by Rachel Abbott was intense, nail biting in parts, and led to me staying up until gone 2am to make sure I had finished it before I going to sleep.

The books overview:

How far would you go to hold on to the people you love?

When Olivia Brookes calls the police to report that her husband and children are missing, she believes she will never see them again.  She has reason to fear the worst; this isn’t the first tragedy that Olivia has experienced.  Now, two years later, Detective Chief Inspector Tom Douglas is called in to investigate this family again, but this time it’s Olivia who has disappeared.  All the evidence suggests that she was here, in the family home, that morning.

But her car is in the garage, and her purse is in her handbag-on the kitchen table.  The police want to issue an appeal, but for some reason every single picture of this family has been removed from albums, from phones, from computers.

And then they find the blood………

Sleep tight – if you can.  You never know who’s watching.

It was a fab book, that grabbed me from the start, and I felt myself really getting to know Olivia, and how she was feeling.  At points I was almost holding my breath with anticipation, and feelings of OMG!

I discovered Sleep Tight, courtesy of  Having signed up some time ago, and letting them know what genres of books I like to read, I now get a daily compilation of titles available at free/discounted prices for your Kindle or Kobo device.  As a result I now have around 50 books waiting to be read, and I’m constantly adding to my virtual Kindle bookshelf.

I feel I’m on a roll now for a good spell of reading time, and a trip to library with the tiddlers today resulted in me borrowing five books for myself ;-P

My next read up for review is Little Lies by Liane Moriarty (whose surname always makes me think of the ‘baddie’ from Sherlock).  Looks like a good ‘un, so I’m off to bed with said book and a cuppa – my life is so Rock and Roll 😉
