To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…
• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?

I am currently reading Morning Frost by James Henry the third of the prequels he has written to the wonderful series by R.D. Wingfield which started with Frost at Christmas.

Set in 1982 Inspector Frost is burying his wife Mary at the start of this book when all the crimes start piling up in Denton.

Morning Frost

This book is due to be published on Thursday 7 November 2013 by Bantam Press.

I just finished reading The Moment Keeper by Buffy Andrews.

Click on the beautiful book cover to read my review of this book which explores the choices we make through the lives of Sarah and Olivia.

The Moment Keeper

Published 1 November 2013 by Carina

Next I plan to read The Sleeper by Gillian White

The Sleeper

Blurb

The sins of the past haunt an isolated farmhouse as a snowstorm rages outside . . .
It’s not shaping up to be a very merry Christmas. Clover Moon feels trapped in her life as a farmer’s wife. She certainly doesn’t enjoy hosting Fergus’s mother, Violet, who always finds new ways to publicly humiliate her unsatisfactory daughter-in-law. But would Violet ever seek a more violent way of expressing her disapproval?
Violet is a medium, and the voices of the dead sometimes encourage her to do disturbing things. During her stay at the farmhouse, she claims to sense an intrusive presence. Fergus then discovers the dead body of a woman floating in their flooded cellar, and elderly Miss Bates, resident of a nearby senior home and a client of Violet’s, is missing . . .
With her acute sense of human nature and gift for suspense, reminiscent of Barbara Vine, Gillian White will leave you guessing until the very end. Amazon

Fiction Fan let me in on the secret that Gillian White’s books had been republished earlier this year by Open Road Media. I read several of her books years ago and was lucky enough to get this free copy through Netgalley. I am really looking forward to reading The Sleeper and all the others that I missed the first time round are now on my Wishlist!

  1. I’m not into mysteries, but Morning Frost looks good, especially since it’s set in the 80’s and Denton.
    The Sleeper looks interesting too!
    Thanks!

  2. Hi Cleo,

    I checked out the link to your great review of ‘The Moment Keeper’, however I’m afraid that just from reading the synopsis alone, I can’t see me being able to get into this one … it just didn’t grab me, although I can’t put my finger on why not!

    On the other hand, both of your other books are definitely for my list. Anything to do with ‘Frost’ has my attention right away. I have the previous books by James Henry already on my shelves, so I shall be looking out for a copy of this one now. (I volunteer in a charity shop … responsible amongst other things for the books, of course … so get plenty of opportunity to source a good read).

    I am a relative ‘newbie’ at NetGalley, however I have already rushed across there and requested the Gillian White book, but the decision is pending, so I shall be keping my fingers crossed on that one!

    Thanks for sharing and Happy Reading.

    Yvonne

    1. Hi Yvonne, how great to hear from you. How lucky to be able to have the pick of all those books. I’m taking a huge bag full to a charity shop this weekend! Gillian White’s books were really good, I am very excited about reading this one after so long… our library only had a few when I first discovered her books. Good luck I hope you get this one!
