Sandy’s Sunday Summary

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a fine Sunday for a change. Though I shouldn’t grumble as we have had two nice fine days this week. Although I love summer, my heart goes out to those in the areas of California affected by the wildfires. Despite my grumbling, we are very lucky here in New Zealand that we are not often subjected to extremes of weather. So wherever you are my friends, I hope that you and your loved ones are safe.

Currently I am reading

Pieces of Her

and true to form, Slaughter has me hooked!

What if the person you thought you knew best turns out to be someone you never knew at all?

Andrea Cooper knows everything about her mother Laura. She knows she’s spent her whole life in the small town of Gullaway Island; she knows she’s never had any more ambition than to live a quiet life as a pillar of the community; she knows she’s never kept a secret in her life.

But one day, a trip to the mall explodes into violence and Andrea suddenly sees a completely different side to Laura.

Twenty-four hours later, Laura is in hospital, shot by an intruder who’s spent thirty years trying to track her down. Now, Andrea must go on a desperate journey to follow the breadcrumbs of her mother’s past. If she can’t uncover the secrets hidden there, there may be no future for either of them.

A Question of Trust

the last book Penny Vincenzi wrote before her death.

1950s London.ย Tom Knelston is charismatic, working class and driven by ambition, ideals and passion. He is a man to watch. His wife Alice shares his vision. It seems they are the perfect match.

Then out of the blue, Tom meets beautiful and unhappily married Diana Southcott, a fashion model. An exciting but dangerous affair is inevitable and potentially damaging to their careers.

Coming up to read this week I have

One Little Lie

โ€˜Iโ€™m Alice. And my son is a murderer.โ€™

Deborahโ€™s son was killed four years ago.
Aliceโ€™s son is in prison for committing that crime.

Deborah would give anything to have her boy back, and Alice would do anything to right her sonโ€™s wrongs.

Driven by guilt and the need for redemption, Alice has started a support group for parents with troubled children. But as the network begins to grow, she soon finds out just how easy it is for one little lie to spiral out of controlโ€ฆ

They call it motherโ€™s intuition, but can you ever really know your own child?

A twisty and unnerving thriller about the price of motherhood and the unthinkable things we do to protect our children.

Last Witness: A gripping crime thriller you won't be able to put down

What if you made one mistake and it came back to kill you?ย 

Detective Zac Boatengโ€™s old friend, Troy McEwen, is found dead in his home. The official verdict is suicide. But Boateng believes it was murder. And he thinks he might be next on the killerโ€™s list.

If Troy didnโ€™t take his own life, then who did? As he investigates, Boateng discovers a link to an incident from decades earlier. Mistakes were made that day. Lives were lost and secrets kept. Until nowโ€ฆ

As more people who were there on that fateful day are found dead, Boateng knows that the killer is closing in on himโ€ฆ

And this week I have received the following ARCs from NetGalley

Happy reading

      2. Reading it at the moment and the jury is still out. Some parts of it I love, others I don’t much like. It will be interesting to see how it all ties in at the end. ๐Ÿ˜Ž
