I am currently reading:
When dynamic, power-dressing Christie blows in like a warm wind to take over their department, five very different women find themselves thrown together at work. But none of them could have predicted the fierce bond of friendship that her leadership would inspire…
Anna, 39, is reeling from the loss of her fiance, who ran off with a much younger woman. Her pride in tatters, these days Anna finds it difficult to leave the house. So when a handsome, mysterious stranger takes an interest in her, she’s not sure whether she can learn to trust again?
Then there’s Grace, in her fifties, trapped in a loveless marriage with a man she married because, unable to have children of her own, she fell in love with his motherless brood. Grace worries that Dawn is about to make the same mistake: orphaned as a child, engaged to love-rat Calum, is Dawn more interested in the security that comes with his tight-knit, boisterous family? When a sexy, footloose rock singer catches her eye, will Dawn have the courage to follow her heart?
At 28, Raychel is the youngest member of their little gang. And with a loving husband, Ben, and a cosy little nest for two, she would seem to be the happiest. But what dark secrets are lurking behind this perfect facade, that make sweet, pretty Raychel so guarded and unwilling to open up?
Technically I am listening to, rather than reading this but so far it is proving to be an excellent book and just as good as the other books I’ve read by Milly Johnson, even if I do end up shouting at the characters occasionally. Good thing I listen while driving and no one can hear me!
In this thrilling police-procedural, we are introduced to Alice Rice, Edinburgh’s latest fictional detective. Smart and capable, but battling disillusionment and loneliness, we follow her as she races against time and an implacable killer to solve a series of grisly murders amongst Edinburgh’s professional elite in the well-to-do New Town.
I’ve just started this so too soon to comment on it. It’s a new author for me chosen by my book group so hopefully it will be as good as it sounds.
I recently finished reading:
I enjoyed Death in Profile and my review for this will be up later this week. I’ve recently been reading the latest of the In Death series and wanted to revisit how it all began so have spent two days happily re-reading Naked In Death.
What I’ll be reading next:
A little fake relationship never hurt anyone. . .
Kate Massie has big dreams-they just haven’t worked out. Yet. In the meantime, she spends her days clerking for a judge and her nights fantasizing about her tall, dark, and sexy gym crush. So when she runs into him one night, she’s shocked to realize he was her shy, nerdy junior-prom date. But that isn’t where the surprises end . . .
James Abell needs a date to his sister’s wedding. So when Kate agrees, he’s relieved . . . until one little lie turns their wedding date into a full-blown fake relationship. Only it doesn’t feel fake-not the toe-curling kisses and definitely not the electricity. Neither of them is looking for something real . . . but they just might fall for their own little white lie.
I’m participating in the blog tour for this on 8th April. The tour is hosted by Xpresso Book Tours
