The Darkness by Ragnar Jónasson #BookReview #BlogTour

A young woman is found dead on a remote Icelandic beach.

She came looking for safety, but instead she found a watery grave.

A hasty police investigation determines her death as suicide . . .

When Detective Inspector Hulda Hermannsdóttir of the Reykjavik police is forced into early retirement, she is told she can investigate one last cold case of her choice - and she knows which one.

What she discovers is far darker than suicide . . . And no one is telling Hulda the whole story.

When her own colleagues try to put the brakes on her investigation, Hulda has just days to discover the truth. A truth she will risk her own life to find.

I'm thrilled to be hosting the blog tour for The Darkness by Ragnar Jónasson today, many thanks to the author and Laura Nicol from publishers, Michael Joseph for inviting me and for my advance copy of the novel.

It's been a little while since I posted a review, I've still been reading but life seems to have got in the way of review writing. With the summer holidays here I will have to play catch up soon!
In the meantime I recently took part in Sunathon, the brainchild of Emma Louise over at EmmaLouBookBlog The idea was to set aside a week for reading as much as possible and to share the books you read on Twitter, using the hashtag #sunathon.
I didn't manage to read a huge number of books, I went camping with just my youngest from Thursday to Friday and so that curtailed much of my reading time. I did however, read The Last Family in England by Matt Haig, John Green's The Fault in Our Stars and The Final Testimony of Raphael Ignatius Phoenix by Paul Sussman.

Reviews for all three will be posted in a while, I loved two but was underwhelmed by the third, I'll leave you to guess which! I've also been reading a few chapters a night of Shadow Forest by Matt Haig to my daughter.
Thank you Emma for suggesting and hosting #sunathon and I'm delighted to see the announcement that there is more to come - count me in!
