Sandy’s Sunday Summary

Here we are at Sunday again, and time, once again, to take a look at what I’m currently reading, what I am planning on reading in the coming week, and what ARCS I have been approved for from NetGalley this week.

I don’t know where in the world you are, but wherever that is, I wish you a happy and peaceful Easter.

I am currently reading

Last Night

And still reading

The Amazing Mr. Morality: Stories

This is a wonderful collection of short stories showcasing the quirks of human nature. I only allow myself one story between each completed book. Kind of like a palate cleanser. But really, I am just trying to make this read last as long as I possibly can!

Listening to

The Address

which I am enjoying every bit as much as The Dollhouse which I listened to earlier this year. I can’t recommend this author highly enough.

Onto what I plan on reading in the coming week. They are three very different reads. . .

The Child Next Door

‘Don’t take my baby.’

Kirstie Rawlings is jolted awake by a child crying. Racing upstairs to check on her new-born, she is plunged into every parents’ worst nightmare. She hears an unknown voice in the baby monitor, saying: ‘Let’s take the child – and go.’

Is someone trying to steal her little girl? 

In the bedroom, her daughter is safe asleep in her cot. Is the voice coming from a nearby house? But there aren’t any other babies living on her quiet country road…

The police don’t believe her. And neither does her husband.

Kirstie knows something isn’t right. She thought she could trust her neighbours, now she isn’t sure. As she unravels the secrets of the people living on her street, Kirstie’s perfect life begins to fall apart.

Because someone is hiding a terrible lie. And they will do anything to stop Kirstie uncovering the truth. But is the danger closer to home than she thinks?

Whisper the Dead: A Cotsworld Village Mystery

With plot twists galore and an array of credible suspects, this traditional village mystery series will appeal to fans of M.C. Beatonand Midsomer Murders 

When Alex Duggins comes across a terrifying scene at the site of a new housing development, once again she is drawn into a case of brutal murder. 

A new year arrives and winter holds Britain’s Cotswold Hills in its icy grip once more. But it’s the construction of a new housing development that’s causing the residents of Folly-on-Weir most concern. As she passes the site late one afternoon, pub owner Alex Duggins is confronted by the terrifying scene of a construction trailer on fire and a man desperately trying to break the door down.

Her efforts to help – and the subsequent findings of the police forensic pathologist – draw Alex and her friend Tony Harrison into a major murder investigation whose tentacles will reach right to the heart of the tight-knit Folly community – and into Alex’s own past …

Anna

One Love, Two Stories.

Anna Cole grew up in care, and is determined to start a family of her own. Theo Montgomery had a loveless childhood, and wants only to find his soulmate.

Then, one day, Theo meets Anna, and Anna meets Theo. Two damaged souls from different worlds. Is their love for each other enough to let go of the pain of their pasts? Or will Anna and Theo break each others’ hearts?

There are two sides to every love story. This is Anna’s.

And I hate to admit it, but I have no new approvals this week. I did submit two requests, but both were declined. A blessing in disguise perhaps, as I am a little behind in my reading, and this will hopefully give me a little breathing space and allow me to catch up.

Thank you and welcome to my new followers. We have reached just over 200 this week. Please don’t be shy about letting me know what you like and don’t like. I love getting your feedback. And I love hearing about what you are reading, or if you have read something that is on my list, what you thought of it.

Happy reading my friends 📚😎

  1. Last Night sounds good and I have added A Child Next Door. Great recommendations. Also, that Stella Cameron book sounds like one I may like as i do like M.C. Beaton.
    Right now I am reading a Nicci Klein book, the Frieda Klein series.

    1. I must catch up on the Frieda Klein series. . . I think the Thursday title was the last one I read. Just started the Stella Cameron, not far enough in yet to pass judgement. Am about to post my review of The Child Next Door. Enjoy 😎
