Watching What I’m Reading…

I have just gotten home from work, and how lovely it is to be able to sit out on my deck in the twilight and listen to the birds wishing each other good night.

It is now twelve hours since I started this post…immediately after writing the above paragraph, the internet dropped out! One of the perils of living in a small rural town I guess. The town is currently being laid with fibre-optic cable, but it won’t be operational until mid-year, possibly a little later as they seem to be experiencing all sorts of drama – including cutting into the sewer line at my place of work!

Anyway…currently I am half way through 46667059._sy475_

and loving it. I read the first half in one sitting last night, and will no doubt do the same with the second half tonight.

I am listening to


I am really enjoying this comedy of errors.

This week I am planning on reading


It’s June 2008 and twenty-one-year-old Adam Lattimer vanishes, presumed dead. The strain of his disappearance breaks his already fragile family.

Ten years later, with his mother deceased and siblings scattered across the globe, Adam turns up unannounced at the family home. His siblings return reluctantly to Spanish Cove, but Adam’s reappearance poses more questions than answers. The past is a tangled web of deceit.

And, as tension builds, it’s apparent somebody has planned murderous revenge for the events of ten years ago.


Beth and Cath are leaving their husbands.

This is a story about two very different women.

One is wealthy and having an affair with a man who gives her the kind of love that her cold, detached husband does not.

One is living hand to mouth, suffering at the hands of a violent partner who would rather see her dead than leave him.

You may think you know these women already and how their lives will unfold.

Beth will live happily ever after with her little girl and her soulmate.

Cath will go back to her abusive husband.

And these two women will never cross paths.

But you will be wrong.

On the 3.15pm train from London to Bristol, Beth and Cath are about to meet and discover they share one shocking thing in common.

I received three new NetGalley ARCs this week




And that’s my lot for the week.

Happy reading .

  2. Gosh, I wish I could read as quick as you!
    Big lies in a small town sounds like my kind of read. Might have to check that one out.
    Trying to reduce my TBR and all your reviews and posts on Book Lovin Kiwi’s isn’t helping…. ah well.
    Happy Reading!
