This Week in Books (May 18)

This Week In Books

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

At the moment I am reading Deadly Focus, the first in a DI Dylan series written by husband and wife team by R C Bridgestock a book that I’ve had on my kindle since November 2012. Having recently linked up with them on social media I decided it was high time I actually started reading this promising sounding series!

Deadly Focus


Deadly Focus is a fast moving, gripping thriller in which the reader travels with DI Jack Dylan throughout his enquiries, living and breathing the pursuit of the sadistic murderer, through his eyes.
A schoolgirl vanishes; everyone becomes a suspect. Murder is chilling and full of mystery; nobody’s child is safe. It is the ultimate and relentless test for the man in charge of the enquiry and his team but the killer is one step ahead and another body is found. Will it prove too much as both Dylan’s health and private life begins to suffer?
DI Dylan is under the microscope and struggles to find a balance between his passion for his job and his love for his partner Jen.
Will he be able to maintain the impetus to bring the perpetrator to justice and secure justice for the victims’ families? Amazon

I have just finished Love You Dead by Peter James a book where DS Roy Grace makes a fairly late entry into the twelfth book in this series, but when he does…

Love You Dead

You can read the synopsis and an excerpt from this book in yesterday’s post

Next I plan to read My Husband’s Wife by Jane Corry which is due out in eBook format on 26 May 2016. With comparisons made to Liane Moriarty, C. L. Taylor and Clare Mackintosh, all favourite authors of mine, I have high hopes for this one!

My Husband's Wife


When lawyer Lily marries Ed, she’s determined to make a fresh start. To leave the secrets of the past behind.
But then she meets Joe. A convicted murderer who reminds Lily of someone she once knew, and who she becomes obsessed with freeing.
But is he really innocent?
And who is she to judge? Amazon

  1. You’ve totally just reminded me that I have a copy of My Husband’s Wife. I must get to that ASAP. I hope you have a great week of reading! 🙂


  2. I’ve heard great things about My Husband’s Secrets and I really must get that first R C Bridgestock myself. I’ve just finished Distress Signals by Catherine Ryan Howard and have started When She was Bad by Tammy Cohen. I love Tammy’s books.


  3. I’ve heard a lot of good things about My Husband’s Wife, Cleo, and it does sound really interesting. I’ll be keen to know what you thought of it when you get there.


  4. Hope you enjoy all these reads! I have a lot of e-books on my Kindle that I really need to find time for…I’m currently reading The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater, and I finished a graphic novel on Agatha Christie the other day which was good ( review soon!)



  5. I did not have much time to blog since Wednesday but there was no way I wouldn’t check on your post to fill my wishlist with new books 🙂 So here I am, two days later!
    November 2012? I won’t judge, I only started to pile up books recently and I am already having issues keeping track and finding time to read it all!
    I have high expectations for My Husband’s Wife. I hope you enjoy it 🙂 Happy reading!
