This Week in Books (6th July, 2022)

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.



You can’t lie to Izzy Lambert. Her highly developed empathic abilities allow her to read people’s emotions with terrifying accuracy – and consequences. As a child her insights sparked her parents’ divorce. As an adult she avoids getting too close to people for fear of what she might learn.

But now young girls are going missing in her town. The police have no suspects but, seeing her old school caretaker interviewed on the news about the story, Izzy comes to a chilling realisation: he knows where the missing girls are. When the police won’t take her seriously despite the lives at stake, she will risk everything to uncover the truth.

[Enjoyed this one, although I did have a few niggles. Review to come soon.]


On the worst night of her life, in the middle of nowhere, lonely Charlotte Wilderwood saves a runaway bride from falling to her death.

Soon Maggie is staying in Charlotte’s home, safely hidden from the man that she was so desperate to escape. The immediate bond between the two women eclipses anything they’ve ever known and before long they will go to extreme lengths to protect each other.

But is Maggie the best friend Charlotte has always dreamed about, or the nightmare she never saw coming… 

[By currently, I mean I haven’t started it yet because … life 🤷🏼‍♀️.]


12-year-old Sophie and her mother, Amelia-Rose, move to London from Massachusetts where they meet the charismatic Matty Melgren, who quickly becomes an intrinsic part of their lives. But as the relationship between the two adults fractures, a serial killer begins targeting young women with a striking resemblance to Amelia-Rose.

When Matty is eventually sent down for multiple murders, questions remain as to his guilt — questions which ultimately destroy both women. Nearly twenty years later, Sophie receives a letter from Battlemouth Prison informing her Matty is dying and wants to meet. It looks like Sophie might finally get the answers she craves. But will the truth set her free — or bury her deeper?

[Didn’t have the best experience with Snakes and Ladders but as this is a stand-alone, I figured I’d give Victoria Selman another go and this does sound quite good.]

That’s the plan. However, things are all a bit blah at Casa Novel Deelights so I will honestly be stunned if I manage to stick to this.

What are you reading this week? Do let me know in the comments!

Wishing you all a wonderful week and lots of happy reading! xx
