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