Hello! Welcome to my little page. I'm Kate, and I live in Shropshire. Love to read, and would love to get more involved with Bookcrossing!

My Favorite books are series books, with characters like Kay Scarpetta, Alex Delaware and the like. I love the real life stories, memoirs, like those on my wish list. I read a wide spectrum of books, but mostly like crime drama types, the whodunnit type books, and books that leave a mark, that you think WOW when your finished!

Here's to happy reading!

My Favourite Books

Here is a few of my favourite books, to be updated when i find another brilliant read!

Outside The White Lines - Chris Simms

A gritty, suspense-filled first novel, which genuinely keeps one on the edge of one's chair from page one right to the end. A killer roams the motorways and attacks breakdown victims who wait for rescue to arrive. This is truly random killing - the hardest of all to detect as there is no real pattern. Woven into the story is how a young traffic cop loses the support of his colleagues during the murder hunt. They are all looking for the Searcher, a person with a twisted mind and a strange obsession. Here is a new crime writer who really knows his stuff - a compulsive and compelling read.


Deborah Wright - The Rebel Fairy.

"Meet JACK: he’s funny, good-looking, a bit of a loser… a lot of a loser, in fact, having just lost his flat and car in a game of snooker. He’s just fallen inexplicably in love with his exceedingly ex Ex LEILA, who can’t stand the sight of him and is more than happy with her handsome City boyfriend HENRY. HENRY, though, has suddenly found he’s got the hots for KATIE, Leila’s best friend and flatmate, who’s been carrying a torch for Jack for so long, the Duracell batteries are beginning to run out…
t’s going on? Can’t Cupid shoot straight anymore? It’s not his fault for once, but Charlie and Puck's, a couple of badly behaved fairies who have been acting more stupid than cupid. And unless they work out how to fix things pronto, theirs is going to end up one seriously grim fairytale…"

This book has a great mix of romance, magic, humor and heartache, a brill chic lit book, and one i can read over and over again!


Tess Gerriston - Body Double

"Dr Maura Isles makes her living dealing with death. As a pathologist in downtown Boston, she has seen more than her share of corpses – many of them victims of violent murder. But never before has the lifeless body on the medical examiner’s table been her own.

But there can be no denying the evidence: the dead woman before her and her close friend and colleague Detective Jane Rizzoli is the mirror image of Maura, down to the most intimate physical details. Even more chilling is the discovery that they share the same birth date and blood type. When a DNA test confirms that Maura’s mysterious double is in fact her twin sister, an already bizarre murder investigation becomes a disturbing and dangerous excursion into a past full of dark secrets.

Searching for answers, Maura is drawn to a seaside town in Maine where other horrifying surprises await. But even more frighteningly, an unknown murderer is at large on a cross-country killing spree. To stop the violence, and uncover the twisted truth about her own roots, Maura must probe her first living subject: the mother she never knew … In her brilliant and terrifying new novel, Tess Gerritsen – bestselling author of The Surgeon and The Sinner – taps into the deep well of murder and obsession, and builds an almost tangible atmosphere of tension and suspense before arranging for an explosive release that is as horrifying as it is unexpected."
