This Week In Books (January 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.


Ever wondered what it’s like to be a juror in a high-profile celebrity trial?

Well.. now you don’t have to. Step inside the jury room to deliberate one of the most talked-about court cases of the decade.


…all three men got her drunk, led her to a hotel room and took advantage of her.


…she was a willing participant and consented to sex with each of them.

After five-weeks of listening to all of the evidence and all of the arguments in a celebrity rape trial that has gripped an entire nation, the jury sit down to begin their deliberations.

But they don’t know who to believe…

…will you?

[Review to follow on Friday for the blog tour]


Gina Royal is the definition of average—a shy Midwestern housewife with a happy marriage and two adorable children. But when a car accident reveals her husband’s secret life as a serial killer, she must remake herself as Gwen Proctor—the ultimate warrior mom.

With her ex now in prison, Gwen has finally found refuge in a new home on remote Stillhouse Lake. Though still the target of stalkers and Internet trolls who think she had something to do with her husband’s crimes, Gwen dares to think her kids can finally grow up in peace.

But just when she’s starting to feel at ease in her new identity, a body turns up in the lake—and threatening letters start arriving from an all-too-familiar address. Gwen Proctor must keep friends close and enemies at bay to avoid being exposed—or watch her kids fall victim to a killer who takes pleasure in tormenting her. One thing is certain: she’s learned how to fight evil. And she’ll never stop.

[I read this a few years ago but now that I want to get caught up on the rest of the series, I realised I might need to refresh my memory so I’m reading it again.]


Poppy has a secret. 

It was a whirlwind romance. And when Drew, caught up in the moment, suggests that he and Poppy don’t tell each other anything about their past lives, that they live only for the here and now, for the future they are building together, Poppy jumps at the chance for a fresh start.

Drew says he has nothing to hide.

But it doesn’t take long for Poppy to see that this is a two-way deal. Drew is hiding something from her. And Poppy suddenly has no idea who the man she has married really is, what he is hiding from her or what he might be capable of.

Drew is lying.

Which is more dangerous, a secret or a lie?

[I really enjoyed Rebecca Reid’s debut, Perfect Liars, so I’m very excited to see what she has come up with this time.]

Have you read any of these? Would you like to? What are you reading this week? Do let me know! Happy reading! xx

    I can’t wait to read your thoughts on She Said Three Said, I really like how it sounds. If I read it I only hope not to be too prejudiced… I’m already inclined to believe HER now… I still have to read my first Rachel Caine book, it’s getting more hopeless by the year to catch on :-). Happy reading Eva!

      I enjoyed it very much! I wasn’t able to jump right into book 2 because of other stuff I need to get through first but I hope to soon.

    She Said Three Said terrifies me – I’d be hopeless on that kind of jury. During the Kavanaugh thing I listened to them both and believed both of them – just as well it wasn’t for me to decide! 😂

      Same! I’d need hardcore evidence or I’d be utterly useless. But that’s the point of this book, really.
