This Week in Books (May 17)

This Week In Books
Hosted by Lipsy 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 The Escape by C.L. Taylor which is one twisty and thrilling ride!

“Look after your daughter’s things. And your daughter…”
When a stranger asks Jo Blackmore for a lift she says yes, then swiftly wishes she hadn’t.
The stranger knows Jo’s name, she knows her husband Max and she’s got a glove belonging to Jo’s two year old daughter Elise.
What begins with a subtle threat swiftly turns into a nightmare as the police, social services and even Jo’s own husband turn against her.
No one believes that Elise is in danger. But Jo knows there’s only one way to keep her child safe – RUN. Amazon

The last book I finished was Blood Tide by Claire McGowan the fifth in the Paula McGuire who works for the missing persons unit in this great series set in Ireland.

Called in to investigate the disappearance of a young couple during a violent storm, Paula Maguire, forensic psychologist, has mixed feelings about going back to Bone Island. Her last family holiday as a child was spent on its beautiful, remote beaches and returning brings back haunting memories of her long-lost mother.

It soon becomes clear that outsiders aren’t welcome on the island, and with no choice but to investigate the local community, Paula soon suspects foul play, realising that the islanders are hiding secrets from her, and each other.
With another storm fast approaching, Paula is faced with a choice. Leave alive or risk being trapped with a killer on an inescapable island, as the blood tide rushes in… Amazon

Next up I intend to read Go To Sleep by Helen Walsh for my Mount TBR Challenge 2017, having bought this book in April 2015.

Hours from now, Rachel Massey will become a mother. Terrified and excited, there is nothing she wants more.

But motherhood is not as she had imagined. The sleepless nights turn to weeks, the weeks to months, and while Rachel loves her son as much as any mother, she can’t escape the feeling that something has gone terribly wrong.
Honest, uplifting and often shocking, Go To Sleep is a powerful and heart-wrenching story. Amazon

So what are you reading this week? Have you read any of these choices? Do you want to?

  1. I do wish I enjoyed the genre so I could read The Escape Cally Taylor is such a lovely person and a Bristol based author I would really like to support her but I just don’t click with the genre at all. I hope you enjoy, I know it’s supposed to be an amazing book.

  2. I read Go to Sleep when my little boy was 6 months old and I thought at the time that I just wouldn’t have got it if I hadn’t had a child of my own. It’s a good read about a difficult subject matter. I also loved her book, The Lemon Grove – have you read that one? Lots of mixed reviews but I thought it was great.

  3. The Escape sounds really tempting, Cleo. Sometimes a thriller can be nicely blended in with a domestic or other story, and this sounds like one of those. I’ll be keen to know what you think when you’ve finished it.

  4. I really need to make an effort to catch up with the Paula Maguire series soon – I’ve read the first three and loved them so I’m looking forward to getting to read the next two. I hope you enjoy The Escape – I really enjoyed it. Happy reading! 🙂
