This Week in Books (April 12)


Hosted by Lipsy Lost and Found, my Wednesday post gives you a taste of what I’m reading this week. A similar meme is run by Taking on a World of Words.

Last book I finished reading :


Zoe and Ollie Morley tried for years to have a baby and couldn’t. They turned to adoption and their dreams came true when they were approved to adopt a little girl from birth. They called her Evie.

Seven years later, the family has moved to Yorkshire and grown in number : a wonderful surprise in the form of baby Ben. As a working mum, it’s not easy for Zoe, but life is good.

But then Evie begins to receive letters and gifts. The sender claims to be her birth father. He has been looking for his daughter. And now he is coming to take her back.

The book I’m currently reading :


What secret would you kill to protect?

When Hedda Hellberg fails to return from a retreat in Italy, where she has been grieving for her recently dead father, her husband discovers that his wife’s life is tangled in mystery. Hedda never left Oslo, the retreat has no record of her and, what’s more, she appears to be connected to the death of an old man, gunned down on the first day of hunting season in the depths of the Swedish forests. Henning Juul becomes involved in the case when his ex-wife joins in the search for the missing woman, and the estranged pair find themselves enmeshed both in the murky secrets of one of Sweden’s wealthiest families, and in the painful truths surrounding the death of their own son.

What I’m reading next :


The dead don’t tell secrets … unless you listen.

The girl’s smashed-in face stared unseeing up to the blue sky, soil spilling out of her mouth. A hundred flies above the bloodied mess. Westerley research facility is not for the faint-hearted. A “body farm” investigating human decomposition, its inhabitants are corpses in various states of decay. But when Detective Kim Stone and her team discover the fresh body of a young woman, it seems a killer has discovered the perfect cover to bury their crime.

What are you reading this week? Let me know! I’m always looking for more books to add to my TBR in preparation for the book shortage apocalypse!

    The Stolen Child sounds good! You’re definitely going to like Cursed 😉 and I’m way behind on the Angela Marsons’ series. I’ve only read Book 1 I think but they are on my to do-list! I’m on two blog tours so I’m reading The Trophy Taker and Sleep Tight. Have you read Love You To Death? Probably, but if you haven’t you should totally read that one too.

    All three of these titles sound good. The last one sounds a bit horrific but very interesting.
