Good morning and welcome to my stop on the Bonnier Zaffre blog tour for Anything for Her by GJ Minett!
I am lucky enough to be able to share an extract with everyone for my stop, but, first, let’s check out a synopsis for this fabulous book!
You’d do anything for the one that got away . . . wouldn’t you?
When Billy Orr returns home to spend time with his dying sister, he bumps into his ex-girlfriend Aimi, the love of his life. He might not have seen her in eleven years, but Billy’s never forgotten her. He’d do anything for her then, and he’d do anything for her now.
When Aimi tells him that she wants to escape her abusive husband, Billy agrees to help her fake her own death. But is she still the Aimi that Billy remembers from all those years ago?
Once Aimi disappears, Billy has to face the possibility that perhaps she had different reasons for disappearing – reasons that might be more dangerous than she’s led him to believe . . .
Sometimes trusting the one you love is the wrong thing to do.
AH! Doesn’t that sound fantastic??!! I cannot wait to dive into this one. If you are impatient (like me!) then you can find this book in e-book format NOW! Otherwise, the paperback release is in March! Be sure to mark your calendars either way!!
Now, keep reading for an extract…

From the Shadows, by Neil White, is the first novel in a new series that follows defense attorney Dan Grant and his investigator/will they or won’t they love interest Jayne Brett. Part crime thriller and courtroom drama, White weaves a seriously addicting and dynamic plot with stellar characters.
When Dan and Jayne inherit a case defending a man accused of murdering a 24-year-old school teacher weeks before trial, everyone around them expects them to ride the case to an obvious guilty verdict. However, Dan is not that type of lawyer. Going back to the evidence and re-interviewing the witnesses, Dan and Jayne find themselves following a path that becomes dangerous.
I really liked the original perspective of this one; it sort of reminded me a little bit of the television show Suits; smart dialogue, sassy characters, and intense plot lines. I loved the variation away from the typical police procedural and the fact that we were able to see an inside look into how an attorney prepares for trial. White, when he isn’t writing books, is a prosecutor and this very obviously shows throughout his narrative. Everything feels so realistic.
Overall, I feel like this was a brilliant start to a new series and will anxiously be awaiting the next novel. 4/5 stars.
Thanks to Netgalley, the author and the publisher for a digital copy of this book; it was my pleasure to provide an honest review.

Lies, the newest psychological thriller by TM Logan, takes readers on a path of secrets and revenge. I read this one as a buddy read with Danielle at The Blonde Likes Books (you can check out her review here). I found this novel to be fast- paced and complex; this plot had me hooked from the first pages.

Stasi Wolf, the second novel in the Karin Muller series by David Young, follows Oberleutnant Karin Muller on a new case. Set in 1975 communist Germany, she must determine the identity of a child snatcher when a pair of infant twins goes missing.
I am a fan of historical fiction so when I found this historical thriller, I knew I needed to pick it up! Equal parts police procedural and mystery; this fast paced journey had me on the edge of my seat.
