The Half Life of Hannah by Nick Alexander
38yr old Hannah, her husband Cliff and son Luke are on a family holiday in France when old secrets surface threatening their stable, predictable life back home.
This book was something and nothing. The storyline is weak with an even weaker main character. I couldn't feel empathy or sympathy for her and I just wanted her to stop moaning! The ending needs serious reworking. Overall very disappointing and I won't be racing to try his other books. Just discovered a sequel - I think I'll just find a summary on Good Reads and leave it to that!
Where There's Smoke by Jodi Picoult
This short story introduces the character of Serenity Jones, a genuine psychic with her own hit TV show. But riding high gets the better of her and she suffers a very public fall from grace when she upsets her spirit guides and to make matters worse she has angered a poltergeist...
This free story is perfectly crafted and hooks you into the character, building the story of Serenity, leaving you eager to find out what happens next... Which of course you can in her next full length book! Lol! I will definitely be buying that one. Very well written.
