Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you’re adding to your shelves, be it buying or borrowing. From ‘real’ books you’ve purchased, a book you’ve borrowed, a book you’ve been given or an e-book they can all be shared.
Well I didn’t expect to do another one of these posts quite so soon as it sort of shows that I’m still acquiring too many books.
First up is Dead Before Morning by Geraldine Evans a book I wouldn’t have picked up if it hadn’t been for Margot’s excellent ‘Spotlight’ of this one on her magnificent blog, in fact even after this temptation I was merely adding it to the wishlist, but it was free…
DI Joseph Rafferty had three problems: His boss, his family and a murder. He knows which one he’d choose, if he had a choice. He’d take the murder of the ‘Faceless Lady’, any time, over the other two, even though he loves his family. Well, some of the time, anyway. Only he’s not given a choice. He must find her killer, while keeping his family’s current legal entanglements downwind of his boss. Otherwise, he risks failure, exposure and career crash. Amazon

Finally, I have a copy by my new favourite publishers Twenty7; Without Trace by Simon Booker.
For four long years, journalist Morgan Vine has campaigned for the release of her childhood sweetheart Danny Kilcannon – convicted, on dubious evidence, of murdering his 14 year-old stepdaughter.
When a key witness recants, Danny is released from prison. With nowhere else to go, he relies on single mum Morgan and her teenage daughter, Lissa.
But then Lissa goes missing.
With her own child now at risk, Morgan must re-think all she knows about her old flame – ‘the one that got away’. As the media storm around the mysterious disappearance intensifies and shocking revelations emerge, she is forced to confront the ultimate question: who can we trust…?
Introducing Morgan Vine, Without Trace is Simon Booker’s debut thriller. Amazon
Without Trace will be published in eBook format on 28 January 2016 and in paperback on 16 June 2016
