I’m taking part in the Blogging From A-Z Challenge April 2017 with the theme of books. I’ll be blogging about the books on my Goodreads shelf that I’ve read or want to read.


Today’s letter is S and the book I’ve chosen is Safe House by Chris Ewan, a thriller set on The Isle of Man in the UK. This hooked me right from the first page. There are lots of twists and turns and shady characters that you don’t know if you can trust or not. It kept me guessing for a long time, making it a very satisfying read.

Here’s the Goodreads blurb:

“W16165209hen Rob Hale wakes up in hospital after a motorcycle crash on the Isle of Man, he is told that Lena, the woman he claims was travelling with him, doesn’t exist. The woman he describes bears a striking resemblance to his recently deceased sister, Laura, but has he really only imagined her?

Convinced that Lena is real, Rob sets out to find the answers to who she is and who is behind her disappearance. He is aided in this by Rebecca Lewis, a London-based PI, who has come to the island at the behest of his parents to investigate his sister’s suicide. But who is Rebecca really and how did she know his sister?

Together Rob and Rebecca follow the clues to discover Lena’s fate. In doing so they realise that even on an island where most people know each other, everyone hides a secret, and sometimes your best option isn’t to hide but to stay and fight.”

What do you think of my choice for the letter S?
