How much can one family take?

Jenny Carbrook murdered three people to make it look as though there was a serial killer at work in Lincoln, when the only person she wanted to kill was Ray Carbrook, her father-in-law, who had raped her the week before her marriage to Mark, Ray’s son.

Jenny wrote letters detailing her crimes in order to protect everyone she loved, but was forced to go into hiding before retrieving the evidence against her. Not only did she leave the letters behind but also her young daughter, Grace.

Now Jenny has a plan, a strategy, to get the letters back. But it’s not only the letters that Jenny has in her sights…

Strategy is the follow up to the international best-seller 34 Days, it can be read as a sequel or an unmissable stand-alone.

A great follow up to 34 days. Anita Waller has a way of making the reader be a part of the character lives and making you feel the emotions that each of them go through. This book was gripping right from the start continuing straight on from the events of 34 days (which I also rated 5 stars) and had me hooked right till the end. I highly recommend this book.

This review will be added to, Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Amazon Australia & Amazon US. I will also add to NetGalley, Apple Books, Kobo, Google Play and Barnes & Noble if available. As I am from Australia, I am unable to add to Amazon UK, but will post to Waterstones & Foyles if also available.

34 Days by Anita Waller #BookReview #34Days #PsychologicalThriller @anitamayw @Bloodhoundbook #onceuponatimebookblog

Today I am reviewing 34 days by Anita. This was released on the 3rd of October 2016, published by Bloodhound Books.


Book Blurb

How much can your life change in just 34 days?

Anna and Ray have been married for thirty-five years. They are parents and grandparents and appear to be a normal couple. But behind closed doors something isn’t right.

On the day of their wedding anniversary Anna makes a decision that changes everything and throws her family into turmoil. Anna will discover that she is not the only one who has suffered and by leaving Ray she sparks a series of events so awful that it might just end in murder…

34 days is a stunning psychological thriller from the best-selling author of Beautiful & Angel. It will appeal greatly to fans of Kathryn Croft, Rachel Abbott, B A Paris & Louise Jensen.


Anita hits this one out of the park. I was gripped from the start right through till the last sentence. A story of secrets, lies and murder. The perfect combination. I highly recommend this book.

Malignant by Anita Waller #BookReview #Malignant #PsychologicalThriller @anitamayw @Bloodhoundbook #onceuponatimebookreviews

Today I am reviewing the amazing Malignant by the also amazing Anita Waller. This was released on the 10th of October, published by Bloodhound Books.

Book Blurb

What if a death sentence meant you could get away with murder?

Claudia and Heather have been friends and neighbours for many years and both women decide it is the right time for them to leave their husbands. Together they get a flat but their peace is short-lived when Claudia is diagnosed with a terminal illness.

Being a good friend, Heather takes on caring for Claudia but a lethal meeting with James, Claudia’s ex-husband, results in someone dying.

As life for Claudia and Heather begins to unravel, the answer to their problems becomes clear… it’s murder.

Even though the year is not over and there are still plenty more books to be read I am calling it now that this is the best book I have read for 2018 in my opinion.

Hooked right from the start this book has all the twists and turns that make a psychological thriller great. I couldn’t get enough of it and was sad when it ended but what a ride Anita Waller takes the reader on. That ending was just WOW!!

The characters were relatable and I loved reading at the end of the book that the characters of Heather, Michelle, Jenny, Jade and Norma were the names of real fans. What a great and lovely way of thanking fans for their support by putting them in a book.

This is the first book I have read by Anita Waller and now she has shot up to the top of my favourite authors list. I will definitely be reading more from this fantastic author. If I could have given this more than 5 stars I definitely would have!

Do yourself a favour fellow readers and if this book hasn’t crossed your path yet make sure it is added to you to be read pile. You won’t be disappointed.
