Watching What I’m Reading…

It’s easy to tell when I am having a bad week…I request/buy/borrow books to make myself feel better. And I have had a bad week this week; a combination of work, one son in hospital with blood poisoning, and the dismal weather have drained me, resulting in 9 new ARCs this week! Susan and Carla can stop laughing right now, I’m sure they were responsible for some of my requests.

I am about to start Dead Wicked by Helen H. Durrant, a series that I have been enjoying.

And I am a little over half way through All the Ways We Said Goodbye by Beatriz Williams, Lauren Willig and Karen White.

This week I am planning on reading One in Three by Tess Stimson of which Jayme of theblondelikesbooks.wordpress.com says ‘That. Was. Fun’

Both of them loved him. One of them killed him . . .

Louise has had to watch her husband, Andrew, start a new family in the four years since he left her. The ‘other woman’ is now his wife – but Louise isn’t ready to let Caz enjoy the life that was once hers, or to let go of the man she still loves.

As Louise starts to dig into Caz’s past, the two women’s pretence of civility starts to slip. But in trying to undermine each other, they discover more about the man they both married.

And when Andrew is murdered at a family party, both women are found standing over the body.

And when Andrew is murdered during the anniversary celebrations, both women are found standing over the body.
It’s always the wife. But which one?

I also plan on reading The Day She Came Back by Amanda Prowse

When her loving, free-spirited grandmother Primrose passes away, Victoria is bereft, yet resilient—she has survived tragedy before. But even her strength is tested when a mysterious woman attends Prim’s funeral and claims to be the mother Victoria thought was dead.

As the two women get to know each other and Victoria begins to learn more about her past, it becomes clear that her beloved grandmother had been keeping life-changing secrets from her. Desperate for answers, she still struggles to trust anyone to tell her the truth.

To live a full and happy life, Victoria knows she must not only uncover the truth, but find a way to forgive her family. But after so many years, is trusting them even possible?

And now (drumroll please!) my ARCs…..

    1. That’s what I thought. I have read and enjoyed that author previously. Son is having surgery today to try and save his big toe. The flesh around the spider bite is dying.

    1. Thanks Susan. Kyle is having surgery today as the flesh around the spider bite is dying. Had a really bad day yesterday. It’s a miracle I’m still married. At least I hope I am…best wait and see if he comes home from work tonight! But feeling much better today. Hope you get them all! ❤😍📚☕🍪

    2. Thanks Susan. I spoke to him last night after surgery and he sounded great. The surgeon hadn’t been back to see him then to say what was happening. I will call him again later today – we are four hours ahead so I generally wait until early afternoon.

  2. First off I hope all goes well for your son and the surgery. That’s a mean spider! I’m keeping you and your family in my thoughts.
    You always give me very good book suggestions and j have started writing the titles in a notebook, along with who suggested it. You have some nice selections here today.
