Watching What I’m Reading…

Good afternoon from stormy New Zealand. At the moment we just have strong gusting winds, but we are expecting heavy rain, and thunderstorms. In the South Island main highways are closed by flooding and slips , and large parts of the island are without power and internet.

So I had better get a move on with this post as I just heard the first rumblings of thunder and the wind is now screaming around the eaves of the house.

I am currently reading

Nora Holliday is not that kind of woman. Not the kind who has an illicit affair with a married man. But Josh Landon is everything Nora’s alcoholic husband isn’t. And now she and Josh are so infatuated, they can’t stay away from one another.

Abby Landon, Josh’s daughter, is home from college nursing a broken heart. She’s seeking solace, not more scandal, so when she catches her dad kissing Nora, she vows to take the homewrecker down.

And as for Abby’s mother and Josh’s wife, Gwen? To anyone on the outside looking in, the mother of two appears to be living the ideal suburban life.

Until she winds up dead.

The serene seaside town of Shoreham has always been the perfect place to raise a family–not somewhere housewives are brutally murdered. So who killed Gwen Landon, and how many twisted secrets will be exposed as the vindictive plot comes undone?

Alastair Sheridan has it all. Wealth, good looks, a beautiful wife and children and, in the chaotic world of British politics, a real chance of becoming Prime Minister.

But Alastair also has a secret. He’s a serial killer with a taste for young women.

Only a handful of people know what kind of monster he is, and disgraced detective Ray Mason is one of them.

Awaiting trial for murder, Ray is unexpectedly broken free by armed men and given an offer: assassinate Alastair Sheridan and begin a new life abroad with a new identity. The men claim to be from MI6. They say that Sheridan is a threat to national security and needs to be neutralised. Ray knows they are not who they say they are, and that their real motives are far darker.

The only person Ray trusts is ex-cop and former lover Tina Boyd, who’s keen to settle her own scores with Sheridan.

With enemies on every side, only one thing is certain.

No one wants them to get out alive.

Only three new ARCs from Netgalley this week

The rain has started and, even though it is only late afternoon, the sky is darkening ominously. Wherever you may be my friends, happy reading and stay safe.

Cheers
Sandy

    1. Definitely yay! I was so excited. The storm was short and savage here. Most of the damage was confined to the south Island……there are still communities isolated by washed out roads. Woke up to a beautiful day today. 🌞 β€πŸ˜πŸ“šπŸ€—πŸ€—
