TenacityTenacity by J.S. Law

50 or so pages in and my summation is that I’m reading the Devon version of NCIS. There’s nothing wrong with that, I enjoy watching a bit of crime tv. I also like reading books that are set in places that I’ve lived or visited and there’s quite a few south coast towns mentioned that I recognise; this just makes it easier for me to visualise.

The blurb

Suicide must be investigated.

Especially when a Royal Navy sailor kills himself on a nuclear submarine, only days after his wife’s brutal murder.

Now Lieutenant Danielle Lewis, the Navy’s finest Special Branch investigator, must interrogate the tight-knit, male crew of HMS Tenacity to determine if there’s a link.

Isolated, and standing alone in the face of extreme hostility, Dan soon realises that she may have to choose between the truth and her own survival.

Justice must be served, but with a possible killer on board the pressure is rising and her time is running out…

I recently finished reading…

The MartianThe Martian by Andy Weir

I really enjoyed the humour of Mark Watney’s character. If you breakdown, get lost or get stranded on Mars for eighteen months, he’s the guy you want to be with. The majority of this book is the urgency to save Mark but I never actually felt it was fast-paced in terms of its writing, in some areas it was quite slow. Although I read the last couple of chapters in about 10 minutes!! 🙂

The blurb

 I’m stranded on Mars.I have no way to communicate with Earth.

I’m in a Habitat designed to last 31 days.

If the Oxygenator breaks down, I’ll suffocate. If the Water Reclaimer breaks down, I’ll die of thirst. If the Hab breaches, I’ll just kind of explode. If none of those things happen, I’ll eventually run out of food and starve to death.

So yeah. I’m screwed.

What’s up next?

The Readers of Broken Wheel RecommendThe Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald

My first read for Netgalley Challenge is a book that I first saw over on Cleo’s blog and was also lucky to be approved for a copy. I really like books set in book shops or around books so am really looking forward to this.

The blurb

Sara is 28 and has never been outside Sweden – except in the (many) books she reads. When her elderly penfriend Amy invites her to come and visit her in Broken Wheel, Iowa, Sara decides it’s time. But when she arrives, there’s a twist waiting for her – Amy has died. Finding herself utterly alone in a dead woman’s house in the middle of nowhere was not the holiday Sara had in mind.

But Sara discovers she is not exactly alone. For here in this town so broken it’s almost beyond repair are all the people she’s come to know through Amy’s letters: poor George, fierce Grace, buttoned-up Caroline and Amy’s guarded nephew Tom.

Sara quickly realises that Broken Wheel is in desperate need of some adventure, a dose of self-help and perhaps a little romance, too. In short, this is a town in need of a bookshop.

    I’m glad you enjoyed The Martian. Mark Watney is the man to get stuck with in any extreme survival situation. Come the zombie apocalyse, I’d want to be stuck with him too!
    Thanks for visiting my post and happy reading!

      Matt Damon is ideally cast for this character, can’t wait for the movie!

    The Martian was probably one of my favorite reads so far this year! And Tenacity sounds like an interesting read as well.

    Thanks for visiting my WWW.

    The Martian is fantastic! I’m glad they went with Matt Damon; he’ll be perfectly dorky yet tenacious with his portrayal of Mark!
