I’m so enjoying this challenge I’ve set myself, lets see if I can keep it up in Feb!!
This is what I’ve been reading this week..
Would you reveal a secret that might solve a murder but would ruin your life? Ginnie Holmes has found something she never intended to find - an overwhelming passion for a man she should not be with. And they have found somewhere to meet - an abandoned boathouse hidden on the riverbank of the Thames. Then, in a single terrifying event, the lovers' secret becomes a deadly catastrophe. A woman is found murdered at the river's edge, just near the river house. And Ginnie finds herself in the path of extraordinary danger, not only facing the exposure and grief that she has feared, but endangering herself and everyone she loves.
First 5 sentences..He’s building a wall of Lego. There’s no sound but the click as he slots the bricks together, and his rapid, fluttery breathing. His face is white as wax. I know he’s very afraid. ‘You’re building something’ I say.
Where I got my hands on it.. My sis bought me this for Christmas. I’ve never read anything by this author before, and it’s not a book that I would have chose off the shelf, which is probably exactly why she chose it..she knew I wouldn’t have it already!
The cover..would never have grabbed my attention had I been choosing a book..
Made me want to….NEVER have an affair!!!! not that I would have before reading this lol
Who’s the lucky duck that’s getting it next?..This is going in the pile I swap with a friend, as i think it would be her kind of book.
This book was a bit slow to start. It’s the kind of book I think I should be enjoying reading more than I actually am. Do you get that? It’s well written, about a lady who has found herself in a loveless marriage, trudging though her boring every day life..until she meets HIM. Then she seems to turn into someone else. I never get that. How you can be with someone all those years, have 2 children, then turn into someone completely different. I didn’t like the main character much. I waited till about half way through until I got to the interesting bit..then I just knew what would happen as it did, which isn’t always a bad thing… but here for me it was. I thought the write up on the back (above) made the book appear a lot more exciting than it was.
Any one read this, or anything else by this author?
Sorry, bit of a downer this week, hope I find a better one to read next! Off to the bookshelves……
What are you all reading?
