Apologies for not posting yesterday. Still battling this viral infection, and everything caught up with me yesterday. I did virtually nothing but sleep. Feeling somewhat better today, and have been to work for a few hours.
It is another cold wet and miserable day here in New Zealand. I have a chicken and mushroom casserole simmering away in the slow cooker and the fire is crackling away keeping us cosy and warm. But give me summer any day! Now that we are past the shortest day, the evenings are getting a little lighter, but we still have the worst of the winter weather to come.
With having this virus, I seem to have slept most of the week away. I haven’t requested anything this week, and nothing on my pending list has been approved.

This riveting psychological suspense debut by Alex Dahl asks the question, “how far would you go to hold on to what you have?”
Cecilia Wilborg has it all–a loving husband, two beautiful daughters, and a gorgeous home in an affluent Norwegian suburb. And she works hard to keep it all together. Too hard…
There is no room for mistakes in her life. Even taking home a little boy whose parents forgot to pick him up at the pool can put a crimp in Cecilia’s carefully planned schedule. Especially when she arrives at the address she was given
and finds an empty, abandoned house…
There’s nothing for Cecilia to do but to take the boy home with her, never realizing that soon his quiet presence and knowing eyes will trigger unwelcome memories from her past–and unravel her meticulously crafted life…

The best crime novel I’ve read in a very long time.’ VAL MCDERMID
‘Snap is the best kind of crime novel – it gives you chills, it makes you think, and it touches your heart. I loved it!’ SARAH PINBOROUGH, No.1 bestselling author of Behind Her Eyes
SNAP DECISIONS CAN BE FATAL . . .
On a stifling summer’s day, eleven-year-old Jack and his two sisters sit in their broken-down car, waiting for their mother to come back and rescue them. Jack’s in charge, she said. I won’t be long.
But she doesn’t come back. She never comes back. And life as the children know it is changed for ever.
Three years later, mum-to-be Catherine wakes to find a knife beside her bed, and a note that says: I could have killed you.
Meanwhile Jack is still in charge – of his sisters, of supporting them all, of making sure nobody knows they’re alone in the house, and – quite suddenly – of finding out the truth about what happened to his mother.
But the truth can be a dangerous thing . . .
So, that’s my week to come. Let me know what you are reading and have read. Stay well and happy reading my friends.
