Eeny Meeny

After a night of rain, we are having a lovely sunny afternoon.  It will help dry out our yard.  I am sharing a great novel with you today.

Eeny Meeny by M.J. Arlidge is a British suspense/thriller novel. It is the first book in DI Helen Grace Thriller series. Detective Inspector Helen Grace is devoted to her job as the head of the Major Incident Team at the Southampton Central Police Station.  She had a rough childhood and does not let anyone get close to her.  Helen’s latest case, though, is going to push her to the limits.  Amy Anderson and Sam Fisher were kidnapped and held hostage.  They were unable to escape.  They were given a cell phone and a gun (no food, no water, and no facilities).  The only way they could leave was if one of them died.  Amy is the only one to come out alive.  Helen is not sure if she can believe the story or not until two other people are kidnapped.  Helen and her team are going to have to be quick to get ahead of this killer.

Eeny Meeny is a wonderful novel.  It keeps you riveted until the very end.  It is a well-written book that I could not put down.  I give Eeny Meeny 5 out of 5 stars.  There is violence, sex, and foul language in this book.  Also, it is a British novel so some of the phrases and word spellings are unfamiliar but can be figured out from the context.  This book will keep you guessing with all the wonderful twists and turns.  I cannot wait until the next book in the series. The next book in the series is Pop Goes the Weasel.  It will be out in October.  The third book is The Doll's House.  It will be out in February (dates subject to change).

I received a complimentary copy of Eeny Meeny from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.  The review and opinions expressed are my own.

I am off to do some chores around the house.  Have a wonderful afternoon and Happy Reading!
