I am currently reading The Winter Foundlings by Kate Rhodes the third in the Alice Quentin series, I read the second one A Killing of Angels .

The Winter Foundlings


The girl was lying on the steps of the Foundling Museum, dressed all in white.
Four girls have disappeared in North London. Three are already dead.
Britain’s most prolific child killer, Louis Kinsella, has been locked up in Northwood high-security hospital for over a decade. Now more innocents are being slaughtered, and they all have a connection to his earlier crimes.
Psychologist Alice Quentin is doing research at Northwood. She was hoping for a break from her hectic London life, but she’ll do anything to help save a child – even if it means forming a relationship with a charismatic, ruthless murderer.
But Kinsella is slow to give away his secrets, and time is running out for the latest kidnap victim, who is simply trying to survive… Amazon

I have just finished a book written (in part) by my favourite author Erin Kelly. Broachurch was based on a British hit TV series written by Chris Chibnall.

Next I am going to read Your Beautiful Lies by Louise Douglas which has a beautiful cover and it’s set at the time of the strikes of the 1980’s which I remember well.
Your Beautiful Lies


Annie Howarth is living a restless life in a restless town. It’s 1987 and for a mining community in South Yorkshire, the strikes mean tensions are running high. Then a murdered girl is found on the moors and the anxiety levels are pushed to a dangerous breaking point.
Married to the Chief of Police, Annie should feel safe – William can be secretive, though surely whatever he’s hiding is for her own good.
But Annie is keeping her own secrets. Ten years ago the man she loved was ripped from her life in a scandal that still haunts the both of them, and now his return will put her family, her marriage, even her life, at risk. NetGalley

  1. Broadchurch is very big here in the UK but I have to admit that I haven’t seen it yet! I have a couple of Erin Kelly’s books on my wishlist but so far I haven’t read any yet. This is my first WWW!


    1. Hi Sarah welcome to WWW! I’m very slow on the uptake and so I missed the TV series (in the UK) but I’m going to make sure I catch the second series which I think is coming out soon. Erin Kelly is one of my favourite authors my favourite being The Burning Air.


  2. Cleo – Oh, I like the cover of Your Beautiful Lies too. And that setting and context (the couple who are keeping things from each other) are also appealing – great setup for a mystery. I’ll be keen to see what you think of that one.


    1. Aargh! Dilemma! I have The Winter Foundlings and Your Beautiful Lies! I’m going to have to squeeze them in in my reading itinerary – assuming Cleo gives it the thumbs up, obviously. Her taste is SOOO reliable! Apologies, I’m not sure if I made some daft mistake trying to post my list, sorry if I wasted anyone’s time searching!
