    This year I'm doing a Reading Challenge; so I have 26 books with specific subjects that I need to readBook 14A book with a character with your first nameInitially I thought finding a book with a character with my first name would be difficult but when then my research prove me so wrong that I actually could pick and choosePicking Someone Else's Skin was really an excellent choiceI fell right into the story 'DI Rome slayer of dragons ' I like the complexity of the characters; especially DI Marnie Rome She's fierce and in charge; taking challenges on head first; but it might be her internal struggles causing this fiercenessThe way Hilary build this beautiful broken strong piece of art she calls Marnie Rome amaze me Marnie feels so real to me I can easily fall into her character and believe it's meThe counter characters amplifies Marnie's character so well you feel you know them allThe slow build of suspense and drama works you up in a way that makes you feel part of itThe tricky premise of the plot with multiple witnesses was perplexing and thought provokingMe reading a lot of suspense thrillers and crime usually figures out the plot uite uickly but not this time Hilary gives you enough and just little enough to keep you guessing and going in the wrong directionThis was Sarah Hilary's debut novel; which makes me very exited for the next books in the series I found a new favorite author

    This book has not yet been released It’s release date is 27th February 2014 I was lucky enough to get a proof copy in my Theakstons crime goody bag at Harrogate last weekend It was the first book I picked out of the pile of books I brought home and I’m so glad it was I’m just sorry that I’ve finished it now and I have to wait so long for DI Marnie Rome book twoHilary’s style is enthralling She captures you in the scene and holds you there effortlessly Her words flow and her characters breath right there in front of you The attention to detail is beautiful I loved DI Marnie Rome and the entire team behind her Commander Welland though not a major character is wonderfully drawn It’s so clear you can picture him clearly and even feel the heat emanate from his officeThe opening scene is stunning Set five years in the past it gives you the driver behind a lot of Rome’s emotions and actions and the repercussions continue to thrive through her lifeThe here and now chapters are eually as gripping and Hilary keeps the pace moving You can’t help but keep turning the pages She throws in twists and shocks in such a believable manner that I couldn’t put this book down I can’t say too much about the story without giving away plot spoilers but what I can say is that I really can’t wait for the next book Hilary produces

    Once in a while I come across a writer andor book that makes me sit up and take notice This happened with Someone Else’s Skin – not only has Sarah Hilary produced an action packed fast paced crime novel but it is one of the best written ones I’ve read recently The uality of the narrative is superb Language and character development is pitch perfect and this was a book I really couldn’t put downI won’t discuss the plot – as I am sure other reviewers have done – and so no spoilers Suffice it to say that Sarah Hilary’s protagonist Marni Rome is a DI with a past horror and terrible loss which impinges on her present She is likeable irritating and someone you want to know about Fortunately Ms Hilary is writing the second book in the series I can’t wait to read it

    Review Someone Else's Skin by Sarah Hilary Someone Else's Skin is the 'crime debut of the year' claims the back cover of Sarah Hilary's first novel Big words to live up to indeed Detective Inspector Marnie Rome is brilliant at her job and a rising star in the police ranks She has also had to fight her way back following the murder of her parents Marnie is dependable and fierce if only on the surface There are secrets swirling beneath the surface that Marnie keeps firmly to herself But secrets have a way of making themselves known Marnie and her partner Detective Sargeant Noah Jake visit a women's refuge to interview one of the residents At the refuge they discover the brutal murder of another woman's husband As the duo investigate events begin to spiral and the violence escalates  In order to discover the identity of the killer and solve the case Marnie needs to look closely at her own secrets and face her demons once and for allIn Marnie Rome Hilary has created a brilliant female lead character A little flawed by events beyond her control Marnie throws herself into work to keep herself sane But this case comes a little too close to home Throughout the book Marnie comes across as dependable and highly skilled at her job but a vulnerable and entirely human side shows through the hard exterior at times Utterly endearing Marnie's character is bound to strike a chord with readers of all ages The author has created a brilliantly constructed series of events that test Marnie and Noah to the limit with both detectives being sucked into the eye of the hurricane This novel really kept me guessing with its twists and turns Every time I thought I had sussed it out I was pleasantly surprised by being proven wrong I really struggled to put this book down I kept falling asleep and dropping the book which woke me up so I could read just one chapter Apologies to my hubby and our dogs for the disturbed sleep Someone Else's Skin grabbed my attention from the outset pulled me in and then flung me out like a wet dishcloth at the end Utterly enthralling I'm really excited about this new crime author and I'm really looking forward to reading her next novelThanks to the bookbridgr team for the review copy I received in return for an honest review
