This Week In Books (October 7)

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

This week I am currently reading The Girl With No Past by Kathryn Croft

The Girl With No Past

Please see yesterday’s post for the synopsis and a taster from this book which is due to be published on 15 October 2015.

I have recently finished reading Nowhere Child by Rachel Abbott, the sequel to Stranger Child giving loyal readers an explanation of what happened to Tasha after the end of the book.

Nowhere Child


Eight months ago Tasha Joseph ran away, and her stepmother, Emma, has been searching for her ever since. She is desperate to give Tasha the home and security she deserves. The problem is, Emma isn’t the only one looking for Tasha. The police are keen to find her too. She could be a vital witness in a criminal trial, and DCI Tom Douglas has a team constantly on the lookout for her. But Tasha remains hidden, and nobody appears to have seen her. Suddenly, the stakes are raised. Somebody is offering money – a lot of money – for information about Tasha’s whereabouts. Tom and Emma know they have never been closer to finding the young girl. But they also recognise that she has never been closer to danger. Can they find her first?

Next I am planning to read Thursday’s Child by Nicci French, the fourth in this duo’s wonderful series featuring clinical psychotherapist Frieda Klein.

Thursday's Child


Two crimes, generations apart . . .
Twenty years ago teenager Frieda Klein was brutally attacked in her own home. No one believed her – not the police, not her mother, not her friends. She left town, trained as a psychologist and never went back.
Now an old classmate has shown up. She wants help with her daughter, who claims to have been attacked at home. An attack eerily similar to the one on Frieda. No one else believes the girl’s story.
Now – with a school reunion in the offing – Frieda returns to the darkness she fled. To the small town which refused to help her and which hides a terrible secret. Because someone at the reunion knows what happened.And they’ll stop at nothing to prevent Frieda discovering the truth . . .Amazon

  1. These all look great, Cleo; I’m glad you are having a good reading week. And thanks for mentioning Nicci French, a writing duo I need to spotlight!


  2. I think The Girl with No Past appeals most this week – though the Rachel Abott looks good too. But since I’ve still never got around to reading the first one…!
