I was so looking forward to this weekend, the first that I haven’t had to work for some time. The weather has been perfect for the gardening I had planned to do. Instead I have been laid up with a particularly nasty stomach bug that is doing the rounds. I am feeling better this afternoon (Sunday) and even though it is a long weekend here in New Zealand, the weather forecast for tomorrow is cold, wet and windy 😞 so I won’t be getting much done outside. I guess I will just have to read, and the lawn and gardens will have to wait!
Currently I am reading
Which I am loving!
I am almost finished listening to
This week I plan on reading
It’s been five years since Mackenzie Darroch was abducted and held captive in a derelict house.
She thought she’d found her way out of the darkness. She was wrong.
When she witnesses a car crash and saves the driver’s life, it sets in motion a chain of events that will alter both their futures.
The two women get involved in a high profile police case and draw the attention of a ruthless reporter. Gina Calvi is convinced Mackenzie is not what she appears and is prepared to do anything to prove it.
Meanwhile, across the city, Kirsty McBride, a young single mother, is persuaded to leave a violent relationship. Her partner, Malkie Boyle a Glasgow hardman, is due to be released from prison. Once back on the street and bent on revenge, Boyle is determined to find the people responsible for stealing his family from him.
Can Mackenzie save them or will Boyle get his revenge?
Pennsylvania, 1940s. The only life Brighton Friedrich has ever known is the one she has endured within the dreary walls of Riverside Home—the rural asylum where she was born. A nurse, Joann, has educated and raised Brighton, whose mother is a patient at the hospital. But Joann has also kept vital information from Brighton—secrets that if ever revealed would illuminate Brighton’s troubling past and the circumstances that confine her to Riverside. Brighton’s best friend is a boy she calls Angel, and as they grow up together and face the bleak future that awaits them, they determine to make a daring escape.
Nothing can prepare Brighton and Angel for life beyond Riverside’s walls. They have no legal identities, very little money, and only a few leads toward a safe place to land. As they struggle to survive in a world they’ve never seen before, they must rely on each other and the kindness of strangers—some of whom may prove more dangerous than the asylum they’ve fled.
5 ARCs from Netgalley this week, plus I picked up 2 books from my library sale….
Were all from Netgalley. And from the library sale I purchased
Plus I have been buying books for the grandchildren’s Christmas parcels. But as the eldest regularly reads my blog, I have to keep mum.
Have a wonderful week’s reading my friends and keep well.
