This Week in Books (September 26)

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

Well I have a great selection of books this week if I do say so myself!

At the moment I am reading Lies Between Us by fellow book blogger Ronnie Turner ready for publication on 1 October 2018.

Will they ever learn the truth?

Three people, leading very different lives, are about to be brought together – with devastating consequences . . .

John has a perfect life, until the day his daughter goes missing.

Maisie cares for her patients, but hides her own traumatic past.

Miller should be an innocent child, but is obsessed with something he can’t have.

They all have something in common, though none of them know it – and the truth won’t stay hidden for long . . . Amazon

The last book I finished was A Jarful of Angels by Babs Horton which was an amazing read – my review will follow soon.



Blurb

The remote town in the Welsh valleys was a wonderful, magical- but sometimes dangerous place in which to grow up. It was there that Iffy, Bessie, Fatty and Billy experienced a plague of frogs one summer, stumbled upon a garden full of dancing statues, found a skull with its front teeth missing- and discovered just what it was that mad Carty Annie was collecting so secretly in those jars of hers. But at the end of that long, hot summer of 1963,one of the four children disappeared.

Over thirty years later, retired detective Will Sloane, never able to forget the unsolved case, returns to Wales to resume his search for the truth. His investigation will draw him into a number of interlocking mysteries,each one more puzzling than the last. Amazon

Next I plan to read The Golden Child by Wendy James, an Australian author.

When teenage bullying spirals out of control who is to blame?

Blogger Lizzy’s life is shiny, happy, normal. Two gorgeous children, a handsome husband, destiny under control. For her real-life alter-ego Beth, things are unravelling. Tensions simmer with her husband, mother-in-law, her own mother. Her daughters, once the objects of her existence, have moved into teenage-hood, their lives -­ at school, home and online – increasingly mysterious to her.

Then a fellow student is callously bullied and the finger of blame pointed at one of Beth’s girls. As an innocent child lies suspended between life and death, two families are forced to question everything they believe about their children, and the answers are terrifying.

As unsettling as it is compelling, The Golden Child asks: how well can you know anyone in the digital age? Amazon

So what do you think? Have you read any of these books? Do you want to?

  1. You have such great books here, Cleo! I really enjoyed A Jarful of Angels, too, and I look forward to hearing what you thought of it. And Wendy James is one of my ‘top ten’ authors, so just about anything she writes appeals to me. I really hope you’ll like that one!

  2. A Jarful of Angels would be my pick. The title made me think it was going to be one of those heart-warming women’s fiction things – the blurb sounds totally different! Hope it’s as good as it sounds! (Fatty makes me think of Enid Blyton… 😉 )
