This Week In Books (April 15)

This Week In Books

Hosted by Lypsyy Lost & Found my Wednesday post gives you a taste of what I am reading this week. A similar meme is run by Taking on a World of Words

I am currently reading The Lie by C.L. Taylor as I enjoyed her first psychological Thriller,The Accident, last year.

The Lie

You can read the blurb and opening paragraph in yesterday’s post.

I have just finished How I Lost You by Jenny Blackhurst

How I Lost You


They told her she killed her son. She served her time. But what if they lied?
I have no memory of what happened but I was told I killed my son. And you believe what your loved ones, your doctor and the police tell you, don’t you?
My name is Emma Cartwright. Three years ago I was Susan Webster, and I murdered my twelve-week-old son Dylan. I was sent to Oakdale Psychiatric Institute for my crime, and four weeks ago I was released early on parole with a new identity, address and a chance to rebuild my shattered life.
This morning, I received an envelope addressed to Susan Webster. Inside it was a photograph of a toddler called Dylan. Now I am questioning everything I believe because if I have no memory of the event, how can I truly believe he’s dead?
If there was the smallest chance your son was alive, what would you do to get him back? NetGalley

My review will follow soon

Next I plan to read I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh

I Let You Go


A tragic accident. It all happened so quickly. She couldn’t have prevented it. Could she?
In a split second, Jenna Gray’s world is shattered. Her only hope of moving on is to walk away from everything she knows to start afresh. Desperate to escape her past, Jenna moves to a remote cottage on the Welsh coast, but she is haunted by her fears, her grief and her memories of the cruel November night that changed her life for ever.
DI Ray Stevens is tasked with seeking justice for a mother who is living every parent’s worst nightmare. Determined to get to the bottom of the case, it begins to consume him as he puts both his professional and personal life on the line.
As Ray and his team seek to uncover the truth, Jenna, slowly, begins to glimpse the potential for happiness in her future. But her past is about to catch up with her, and the consequences will be devastating . . . Goodreads

  1. I Let You Go sounds fantastic. I hope you enjoy it.. 🙂 I’m still trying to knock some series of my TBR this month. It’s going well!


  2. The two titles DO go well together! I found I Let You Go slow to start so, er, let it go temporarily, of course! I loved the start of How I Lost You, which I read when I got it – fabulous! When you write “My review will follow shortly” it’s like Eastenders theme – I want to KNOW! Did you love it or hate it?! Can’t wait to find out! I had an exciting encounter yesterday – and a free book!! (on Twitter!) I’m so easily starstruck!!


    1. I have now read three books in a row with women living under a different name – it is odd how these books group themselves together!! It is my way of maintaining some suspense so that you get the most out of my review haha – and you can talk I had to trawl through your twitter account to see what your news (and free book!!) was – how lucky were you?


  3. You have a nice group of books there, Cleo. I Let You Go sounds especially intriguing. It’s an interesting motif isn’t it, to have a character who’s fleeing an old life, only to have the past catch up.


    1. I am looking forward to I Let You Go and somehow I am on a run of books fleeing from the past – I’m currently reading the third in a row with women living under an assumed name only for their true identity to be discovered… I’m now sure why this seems to be so popular this year!
