This Week In Books (March 18)

This Week In Books

Hosted by Lypsyy Lost & Found my Wednesday post gives you a taste of what I am reading this week.

In a change of genre I am currently reading A Place For Us by Harriet Evans

A Place for Us


The day Martha Winter decided to tear apart her family began like any other day.
So opens A Place for Us by Harriet Evans, a book you’ll dive into, featuring a family you’ll fall in love with … and never want to leave. If you devour Rosamund Pilcher and Maeve Binchy and have discovered Jojo Moyes, you’ll be thrilled to add Harriet Evans to your collection of favourite authors.
The house has soft, purple wisteria twining around the door. You step inside.
The hall is cool after the hot summer’s day. The welcome is kind, and always warm.
Yet something makes you suspect life here can’t be as perfect as it seems.
After all, the brightest smile can hide the darkest secret.
But wouldn’t you pay any price to have a glorious place like this?
Welcome to Winterfold.

I have just finished The Ghost Fields by Elly Griffiths where I had an enjoyable time catching up with Ruth Galloway’s investigation into a body found in the cockpit of a WWII plane. This should have been straightforward but the pilot’s body was found during the war so whose body is this?

My review will follow shortly but you can read the opening paragraph in yesterday’s post.

Next I plan to read Humber Boy B by Ruth Dugdall. I have been waiting for another book by this talented author for quite some time so this book is being read with a high level of anticipation.

Humber Boy B


A child is killed after falling from the Humber Bridge. Despite fleeing the scene, two young brothers are found guilty and sent to prison. Upon their release they are granted one privilege only, their anonymity.
Probation officer Cate Austin is responsible for Humber Boy B’s reintegration into society. But the general public’s anger is steadily growing, and those around her are wondering if the
secret of his identity is one he actually deserves to keep. Cate’s loyalty is challenged when she begins to discover the truth of the crime. She must ask herself if a child is capable of premeditated murder. Or is there a greater evil at play? Amazon

  1. I’m so happy you’ve had the chance to read the latest Elly Griffiths! I’m a fan of her Ruth Galloway series, and this one does sound good.


  2. Humber Boy B sounds good. I love the crime novels you review. I have to break into the genre. I’m not a crime reader, but branching out doesn’t seem easy. Duh, I should just pick up a book and start. I just don’t know where to start!


  3. I just finished “A Beautiful, Blue Death” by Charles Finch. It was a Goodreads recommendation for my mysteries/thrillers shelf. I liked it. It sort of had a Sherlock and Watson duo but totally different.
