This Week in Books (May 29)

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.


‘Sara! Remember! Victoria and Albert. All I can say. They’re here. They’re-‘ 

These are the last words Sara Prior will ever hear from her husband. 

As DS Nathan Cody struggles to make sense of the enigmatic message and solve the brutal murder, it soon becomes clear that Sara is no ordinary bereaved wife. Taking the investigation into her own hands, Sara is drawn into a world of violence that will lead her in a direction she would never have suspected. 

For Cody, meanwhile, things are about to get personal in the darkest and most twisted ways imaginable…


Max and Pip are the strongest couple you know. They’re best friends, lovers—unshakable. But then their son gets sick and the doctors put the question of his survival into their hands. For the first time, Max and Pip can’t agree. They each want a different future for their son. 

What if they could have both?


One dark January night a car drives at high speed towards PI Varg Veum, and comes very close to killing him. Veum is certain this is no accident, following so soon after the deaths of two jailed men who were convicted for their participation in a case of child pornography and sexual assault … crimes that Veum himself once stood wrongly accused of committing.

While the guilty men were apparently killed accidentally, Varg suspects that there is something more sinister at play … and that he’s on the death list of someone still at large.

Fearing for his life, Veum begins to investigate the old case, interviewing the victims of abuse and delving deeper into the brutal crimes, with shocking results. The wolves are no longer in the dark … they are at his door. And they want vengeance.

Anything catching your eye? What are you reading this week? Do let me know! Happy reading! xx

      I am very much liking it so far, although that seems like an odd word to use considering the book’s topic.

    Definitely After The End. I have a Netgalley copy and wasn’t special enough to get one of those lovely slipcase versions 😦

      I’m not special enough either 😔. I’ve had this on my Netgalley shelf for months, before I had to make a decision not to read digitally anymore. So I’m reading it in bits and pieces, which is a good thing because wow, it is extremely emotional.

    Some excellent looking books there, Eva – I’ll be looking out for your reviews. I’m currently reading Dignity by Alys Conran, which I’m really enjoying 🙂

      Enjoying seems like an odd word to use but yes, I am. Reading it in small doses though. I’d really rather not choke on the lump in my throat 😂

    I just got approved to read After the End from NG yesterday so I’m really keen to get to it. I think I’m going to save it to read when I’m home alone as it seems to be a real tearjerker. Hope you enjoy reading Wolves at the Door over the coming week. 🙂

      Good plain, Hayley! It is indeed very emotional but so good!

    I have After the End but I’ve put off reading it for now because of the topic of a sick child-it’s a bit much since a friend’s young daughter just had to be taken off life support last month because of brain damage, and I’ve been a mess since. I’ll revisit it down the road once the grief isn’t so new because I’m sure it’s a wonderful, yet highly emotional read.
