Hello everyone. I hope you are all safe and well and that there’s light at the end of this tunnel.
I am about to begin A Cold Trail, #7 in the Tracy Crosswhite series by Robert Dugoni.
I am currently listening to Mary Kubica’s The Other Mrs
This week I am planning on reading Can You See Her by S.E. Lynes
What would you do if no-one was watching?
Rachel is afraid she may have done something terrible. She’s sitting in a room, being asked whether she killed someone.
She doesn’t understand how her life has changed so completely. When she was younger, heads would turn when she walked into a room. Her children needed her; her husband adored her.
But somehow the years wore that all away. She was so busy raising her children, looking after her parents, that the woman who used to be Rachel Ryder, whose husband told her she was out of his league, now quietly washes his clothes and makes his dinner, and can walk into a room without anyone knowing she’s there.
She knows that she thought: what would it take for you to see me again? What if I did something no-one thought I was capable of?
And The Island Girls by Noelle Harrison
I guess our life on the island was one which never fit you right. I like to imagine you some days when I look out the window across the harbour, all those miles of sea and land between us. But, sister, we are always connected.
When young nurse Emer loses her beloved sister, she is haunted by grief and desperate to escape her memories. Taking a job in Vinalhaven, a rocky outpost in the wild Atlantic, feels like the refuge she so badly needs.
Her patient, Susannah, has lived in isolation for many years, since the tragic death of her sister Kate caused her to withdraw from island life. However, when Emer discovers a bundle of letters in a rainbow quilt in her bedroom and shares the story of her own loss, Susannah opens up. She begins to tell the story of Kate’s brutal and secret past, and her marriage to a man with a heart as cold as the ocean.
But when Emer starts asking locals about Kate, the island air sizzles with hostility. There are people who would rather that Susannah kept quiet, who have no qualms about threatening Emer. But despite the warnings to stay away, Emer is determined to find out what really happened the night Kate died – and the final secret that is keeping Susannah a prisoner to the past.
Then I have a small gap until my next scheduled read for review, so I plan on doing a lucky dip with my backlist and plucking something out at random.
Only 4 new ARCs this week:
A Million Little Lies by Betty Lee Crosby
Killing Mind by Angela Marsons
The Last Bathing Beauty by Amy Sue Nathan
And The Suicide House by Charlie Donlea
I did have one more ARC, The Women Who Ran Away by Sheila O’Flanagan. I was approved for this at the last moment, and it had already been archived when I went to download it. I am going to contact the publisher and BEG! 😂🤣
And just so you all know that I am taking my lockdown fitness regime seriously, here is what I did this morning:
Stay sane….oops, I meant safe and healthy. Stay home and read.
