Happy weekend everyone!
My son and grandson have been in the South Island this week. They couldn’t have picked a much worse week in summer. The weather has been diabolical. Cold, wet and windy, with snow on two days. But they have had a wonderful time despite the weather and have sent us photos of their adventures each evening. They were going whale watching in Kaikoura this morning and flying home from Christchurch this afternoon. It is still quite windy, but not gusting like it was this morning, so hopefully the trip home won’t be too bumpy.
Couldn’t tell what time it was!
Currently I am reading Exit by Belinda Bauer. She is an author I always enjoy.
And I am listening to Dry Bones (Enzo #1) by Peter May.
This week I am planning on reading The Rosary Garden by Nicola White
It was Ali who found the body of a murdered newborn baby, hidden in the garden of her convent school. In an Ireland riven by battles of religion and reproduction, the case becomes a media sensation, even as the church tries to suppress it. But this is not the first dead baby Ali has found.
For Detectives Vincent Swan and Gina Considine, the pressure to discover the identity of the dead child is little help against a community with secrets to protect. Gina knows all too well how many of Ireland’s girls are forced to make difficult decisions in terrible circumstances, silenced by shame. Is Ali one of those girls? Because what evidence there is, points to Ali herself…
And Life Sentences by Billy O’Callaghan
At just sixteen, Nancy leaves the small island of Cape Clear for the mainland, the only member of her family to survive the effects of the Great Famine. Finding work in a grand house on the edge of Cork City, she is irrepressibly drawn to the charismatic gardener Michael Egan, sparking a love affair and a devastating chain of events that continues to unfold over three generations. Spanning more than a century, Life Sentences is the unforgettable journey of a family hungry for redemption, and determined against all odds to be free.
I have received two ARCs from Netgalley this week: Win by Harlan Coben
And Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid
I l❤ve that cover!
So that is all from me today. I hear Belinda Bauer calling my name!
Have a wonderful week. Take care and be kind. ❤📚
