Eagerly Awaiting: August Reads 2014

There are quite a few books that have caught my eye that are coming out this month and there are a couple that I have already had the privilege of reading and they are both awesome reads. 

First up is Mean Streak by Sandra Brown. Sandra writes a fab fast paced romantic suspense and this one looks to be just as good. On Amazon it is described as 'a heart-pounding new thriller about a Texas Ranger whose past resurfaces and threatens to destroy those he loves most.'

August also sees the release of the latest book in James Patterson's Private series, Private India. This book takes the reader to Mumbai, India where PI Santosh Wagh is on the hunt with his team for a serial killer who has been murdering women in a chilling ritual. Patterson teams up with Ashwin Sanghi for Private book number 8, I always enjoy the Private books as it's great to see Patterson take his characters to different places.

One Kick is the first in a new series from Chelsea Cain. I have been lucky enough to read this and it is fantastic. There is a wonderful darkness about Chelsea's books as seen in her Gretchen Lowell series and we see it again with One Kick. This book explores from very dark issues around child pornography amongst other things. The topic might sound off putting but the book is sensitively written and I am so pleased that Chelsea Cain has introduced us to such a wonderful new character, Kick Lannigan.

The Good Girl by Mary Kubica just sounds like a totally awesome debut and it has had a lot of hype. Read the blurb, sounds good yes?

I've been following her for the past few days. I know where she buys her groceries, where she has her dry cleaning done, where she works. I don't know the colour of her eyes or what they look like when they're scared. But I will.

Mia Dennett can't resist a one-night stand with the enigmatic stranger she meets in a bar.
But going home with him might turn out to be the worst mistake of Mia's life...

An addictively suspensful and tautly written thriller, The Good Girl is a compulsive debut that reveals how, even in the perfect family, nothing is as it seems...

This actually came out at the end of July but hey who cares.

Personal is book 19 in Lee Child's, Jack Reacher series and I loved it. Jack comes to London. Yay! Amazon says This new heartstopping, nailbiting book in Lee Child's number-one bestselling series takes Reacher across the Atlantic to Paris - and then to London. The stakes have never been higher - because this time, it's personal.
