Sandy’s Sunday Summary

How many wet miserable Sundays have we had in a row now in our little corner of New Zealand? Honestly? I have lost count. . .

So let’s talk books.

Currently I am reading

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

I read the first book in the series, Bring Her Back, and loved it. So I was excited to receive an ARC of Last Witness. So far, it is living up to my expectations which is a relief as my previous two reads were not at all satisfying.

This week I plan on reading

11 Missed Calls

Here are two things I know about my mother:

1. She had dark hair, like mine. 

2. She wasn’t very happy at the end.

Anna has always believed that her mother, Debbie, died 30 years ago on the night she disappeared.

But when her father gets a strange note, she realises that she’s never been told the full story of what happened that night on the cliff.

Confused and upset, Anna turns to her husband Jack – but when she finds a love letter from another woman in his wallet, she realises there’s no-one left to help her, least of all her family.

And then a body is found…

The Secret

You turn your back for a minute. And now your son is in terrible danger …

Louise is struggling to cope.  As a busy working mum, she often has to leave her eight-year-old son Archie at her sister Alice’s flat.

Alice and Louise used to be close.  But there’s a lot they don’t know about each other now – like the bottle of vodka Louise hides in her handbag, Alice’s handsome new friend and the odd behaviour of her next-door neighbour.

Archie is a curious little boy. He likes to play on his own at his auntie’s flat until one day when he sees something he shouldn’t. Now he has a secret of his own.  One he can’t tell his mum. One that could put him and his family in terrible danger.

And a quiet week on the ARC front with just one approval.

An Unwanted Guest

I hope you have all had a far more satisfying week’s reading than I had, and that we are looking at a greatweek to come. Enjoy the remainder of your weekend.

      1. I don’t understand that at all!

        Oh I saw on the news this morning that New Zealand and Australia were sending over firefighters to help with the fires in California!! That is so cool!😊💖

      2. They say it is because I live outside of the USA and Canada which I their target market. But once in a blue moon they approve me. I feel so sorry for all those affected by the wildfires. I can’t even imagine what it would be like. It is something that happens only on a very much smaller scale here in New Zealand, but we used to get them when I lived in Australia. Terrifying even at a distance. Praying for rain. 💕💖💕
