| LAST BOOK I FINISHED READING |
One hot summers night in Italy, Joe and Cathy Plant receive a phone call that will change their lives forever.
Their sister Frannie has killed a man, and she needs their help.
They were always close, some might say too close, siblings who worked together, lived next door to each other. And now they’ve buried a body together…
But when they return to England, Frannie, Joe and Cathy become tangled in lies in they’ve been telling, to the police, to their friends, to each other…
But if you can’t trust your family, who can you trust?
[The winner of last week’s poll. Hm. Someone might stop talking to me 😳. Review to come.]
| THE BOOK I’M CURRENTLY READING |
It’s a typical teenage bedroom with posters covering the walls and clothes littering the floor. But the girl lying on her bed, wearing a delicate chain around her neck, is lifeless. A circle of red stains her white vest top and Kim feels a sharp stab of sadness. How had the girl’s mother looked down at her sleeping child and pulled the trigger?
When Detective Kim Stone rushes to the scene of a house fire, she’s shocked to discover it’s claimed the lives of two teenage children and their parents. But this tragedy is not quite as it seems. Each body is marked by a gunshot wound and the mother, Helen Daynes, is holding the gun.
[Time to start on my ARCs for May. First up, the next Kim Stone. I’m excited. This is only part of the blurb on Goodreads, btw, because I feel this publisher always gives away way too much information.]
| WHAT I’M (PROBABLY) READING NEXT |
Once again you have the power to decide what my next read will be. Six new options this week. What will you choose?
EDIT : The description for The House in the Cerulean Sea is wrong. Still a fantasy but about the profound experience of discovering an unlikely family in an unexpected place. I can’t edit the poll since people have already voted and the whole thing would be reset. Apologies. Carry on!
There you go. Whichever book is winning when I finish Six Graves will be my next read. Feel free to leave a comment with the book of your choice and why it gets your vote. Thanks for voting and for helping me clear my backlog. And also make space on my shelves for new books, obviously. 😏
Until next time, happy reading! xx
