This Week In Books (September 9)

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’ve just started reading Can Anyone Help Me? by Sinéad Crowley

Can Anyone Help me

Blurb

It was crazy really, she had never met the woman, had no idea of her real name but she thought of her as a friend. Or, at least, the closest thing she had to a friend in Dublin.
Struggling with a new baby, Yvonne turns to netmammy, an online forum for mothers, for support. Drawn into a world of new friends, she spends increasing amounts of time online and volunteers more and more information about herself.
When one of her new friends goes offline, Yvonne thinks something is wrong, but dismisses her fears. After all, does she really know this woman?
But when the body of a young woman with striking similarities to Yvonne’s missing friend is found, Yvonne realises that they’re all in terrifying danger. Can she persuade Sergeant Claire Boyle, herself about to go on maternity leave, to take her fears seriously? NetGalley

I have recently finished Deadly Divorces by Tammy Cohen which I found within my brother’s extensive true crime selection.

Deadly Divorces

Blurb

What makes a model father murder his estranged wife, then go on TV pleading for her to come home? How does a devoted wife and mother walk into a beauty salon and shoot her ex-husband’s pregnant lover in cold blood?
No one ever knows what really goes on behind the closed doors of a marriage in freefall. The people in this book weren’t born evil, but in the heat of a relationship break-up, all restraint melted and violent passions spiralled out of control.
The most basic of emotions are involved in these stories of spouses who have gone to extreme lengths to rid themselves of their partners. Goodreads

Next up I am planning on reading Little Girl Gone by Alexandra Burt

Little Girl Gone

Blurb

A baby goes missing. But does her mother want her back?
When Estelle’s baby daughter is taken from her cot, she doesn’t report her missing. Days later, Estelle is found in a wrecked car, with a wound to her head and no memory.
Estelle knows she holds the key to what happened that night – but what she doesn’t know is whether she was responsible… Goodreads

  1. I think Can Anyone Help Me? really touches on a timely topic (Internet groups), Cleo. It’s the sort of thing that you really could imagine happening. And Deadly Divorces sounds like a really interesting read.

    1. Yes I do like these up to date topics in my reading – as you say it is so easy to imagine this scenario. Deadly Divorces was quite an eye-opener when you think that people who loved each other can end up in this type of situation.

  2. LittleGirl Gone is the one that’s caught my interest here…though I have been reading quite a few books recently about mothers and missing children. Still, another can’t hurt right?
