Whilst I’m waiting for The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman to arrive, I’ve been reading one of my ‘filler’ books: Tell No One. This is one thrill of a ride, I tell you, with zigs and zags so fast that the reader doesn’t see them coming.  This is a first person and a third person telling that never loses momentum. Coben writes in a smooth underbelly frantic tone, and doesn’t miss a beat.

“For Dr. David Beck, the loss was shattering. And every day for the past eight years, he has relived the horror of what happened. The gleaming lake. The pale moonlight. The piercing screams. The night his wife was taken. The last night ….. Suddenly Beck is taunted by the impossible-that somewhere, somehow, Elizabeth is alive……” Goodreads/in part

I’ve always liked Coben’s style of writing. Straight forward; suspenseful; pull-the-reader-in from the first word and don’t let go ‘til the last word. This is a very good summer beach read.

    My favourite Coben, it is a masterclass is the art of the twist and the movie adaptation is great too. Nice to see that someone else thinks of Coben as ‘filler’ read 😉

    I loved the French film based on Harlan Coben’s book. Probably one of the best thrillers of the last ten years.

The Whisper of God

Years ago, I started writing down all the amazing ways God used my day-to-day activities, children, family, and nature to teach me. The more I wrote, the more I noticed our extraordinary God in my everyday ordinary life. It became an exercise of the heart and grew my relationship with Christ in a way I had never experienced. Opening up the Bible daily drew me into His will and wonderful ways. He was no longer a friend of a friend, but my personal friend. I began to hear God whisper His desires and lessons for me. Now, my goal is to encourage women to stop and listen for His whisper in their lives by sharing what God has taught me through my Bible Studies and devotionals.
