I am currently reading Dying for Christmas by Tammy Cohen an edgy psychological thriller.

Dying for Christmas


I am missing. Held captive by a blue-eyed stranger. To mark the twelve days of Christmas, he gives me a gift every day, each more horrible than the last. The twelfth day is getting closer. After that, there’ll be no more Christmas cheer for me. No mince pies, no carols. No way out.
But I have a secret. No-one has guessed it. Will you?Goodreads

I have recently finished my surprise find for the year, Interlude by Rupert Smith
which is a book about a writer and his secrets. This was an enthralling read set partly in the present by Helen and then across the decades  from the 1930’s to the 1960’s by her Grandfather Edward Barton.

Next I am going to read The Perfect Mother by Nina Darnton which I imagine is going to bring out a lot of ‘What would I do?’ moments.
The Perfect Mother


When an American exchange student is accused of murder, her mother will stop at nothing to save her.
A midnight phone call shatters Jennifer Lewis’s carefully orchestrated life. Her daughter, Emma, who’s studying abroad in Spain, has been arrested after the brutal murder of another student. Jennifer rushes to her side, certain the arrest is a terrible mistake and determined to do whatever is necessary to bring Emma home. But as she begins to investigate the crime, she starts to wonder whether she ever really knew her daughter. The police charge Emma, and the press leaps on the story, exaggerating every sordid detail. One by one, Emma’s defense team, her father, and finally even Jennifer begin to have doubts.
A novel of harrowing emotional suspense, The Perfect Mother probes the dark side of parenthood and the complicated bond between mothers and daughters. Goodreads

  1. Cleo – I’m really glad you enjoyed Interlude as much as you did. I may just have to put that one on my list. And I am looking forward to reading what you think of The Perfect Mother.


    1. Interlude is really well-written with realistic characters and a great story about hidden secrets stretching back to before World War II. With action taking across the country as the protagonist is part of a travelling theatre and the links to books made this a rich read that I totally enjoyed.


  2. Currently reading Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb

    Recently finished A is for Alibi by Sue Grafton

    Next on my list will be the first book in a 6 month reading challenge called “What’s in a Name” and I have chosen to start with The Serial Killer’s Wife by Robert Swartwood to fit the category “A reference to a person (common noun)”
