Watching Over You

Blurb

Following the death of her husband and unborn child, Charley Belington sells the family home and bravely starts life over again. On moving into a new flat, she is befriended by her landlady, Ella, who seems like the perfect friend and confidante.
But, unbeknown to Charley, Ella is fighting her own dark and dirty demons as the fallout from a horrific childhood sends her spiralling down into madness—and unspeakable obsessions.
As Ella’s mind splinters, her increasingly bizarre attentions make Charley uneasy. But with every step Charley tries to take to distance herself, Ella moves in a tightening lockstep with her, closer and closer and closer… Goodreads

A psychological thriller featuring one very damaged woman who picks up men and women for entertainment. Perhaps not the place for a grieving widow to move to? A real page-turner!

I have just finished Martyr by Rory Clements the first of the John Shakespeare series set in Elizabethan England which I enjoyed so much I want to read the rest of the series. click on the cover to read my review.

Wake

Blurb

As the body of the Unknown Soldier makes its way home from the fields of Northern France, three women are dealing with loss in their own way: Hettie, who dances for sixpence a waltz at the Hammersmith Palais; Evelyn, who toils at a job in the pensions office, and Ada, a housewife who is beset by visions of her dead son. One day a young man comes to her door. He carries with him a wartime mystery that will bind these women together and will both mend and tear their hearts.
A portrait of three intertwining lives caught at the faultline between empire and modernity, Wake captures the beginnings of a new era, and the day the mood of the nation changed for ever Goodreads

So this week has seen quite a mixture of books, although two of them have one word titles! What are you reading

  1. Oh my! Watching Over You looks terrifying. Good though. I like my psychological thrillers. I’ll have to add this to my TBR list.

    1. If you love Elizabethan England I think you will enjoy Martyr, I really didn’t expect the history to come alive through a cracking good story. Rory Clements knows how to captivate this reader 🙂 It’s a shame when you don’t like a book, I always wonder if I’m missing something when everyone else raves about one that I just don’t like. Hopefully Martyr will hit the right spot 🙂

  2. Greetings furless one… The human is desperate to read “Watching over you….” right now she’s reading Patricia Cornwell’s “Portrait of a Killer… Jack the Ripper Case Closed”…. I don’t know why, but every time I try to sleep on that book, she picks me up and won’t let me lay on it… That brat!
