Stacking the shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves. These can be physical books or e-books. Books you have bought or borrowed, or have been given. All can be added.
This week I have been approved for three books, a little excessive seeing as I am trying to clear my backlog, but I really couldn’t resist these and I have been quite good lately.
First up is, When She Was bad by Tammy Cohen.
Amira, Sarah, Paula, Ewan and Charlie have worked together for years – they know how each one likes their coffee, whose love life is a mess, whose children keep them up at night. But their comfortable routine life is suddenly shattered when an aggressive new boss walks in ….
Now, there’s something chilling in the air.
Who secretly hates everyone?
Who is tortured by their past?
Who is capable of murder?
Next is Another Love by Amanda Prowse
In the early years, she was happy.
Romilly had worked hard for her stunning, modern house in one of Bristol’s most fashionable suburbs. She adored her gorgeous, gap-toothed daughter and her kind and handsome husband. Sure, life was sometimes exhausting – but nothing that a large glass of wine at the end of the day couldn’t fix.
But then, as deep-buried insecurities surfaced, everything started to unravel. A glass of wine became a bottle; one bottle became two. Once, Romilly’s family were everything to her. Now, after years of hiding the drinking, she must finally admit that she has found another love…
And lastly, The Widow by Fiona Barton.
Jean Taylor’s life was blissfully ordinary. Nice house, nice husband. Glen was all she’d ever wanted: her Prince Charming.
Until he became that man accused, that monster on the front page. Jean was married to a man everyone thought capable of unimaginable evil.
But now Glen is dead and she’s alone for the first time, free to tell her story on her own terms.
Jean Taylor is going to tell us what she knows.
All these books look fantastic.
My last book is, In The Cold Dark Ground by Stuart MacBride. I bought this when I went to see him at Waterstones’ and managed to get it signed. Stuart is a lovely man and I would recommend going to see him if he is at a store near you. 🙂
Sergeant Logan McRae is in trouble…
His missing-persons investigation has just turned up a body in the woods – naked, hands tied behind its back, and a bin bag duct-taped over its head. The Major Investigation Team charges up from Aberdeen, under the beady eye of Logan’s ex-boss Detective Chief Inspector Steel. And, as usual, she wants him to do her job for her.
But it’s not going to be easy: a new Superintendent is on her way up from the Serious Organised Crime Task Force, hell-bent on making Logan’s life miserable; Professional Standards are gunning for Steel; and Wee Hamish Mowat, head of Aberdeen’s criminal underbelly, is dying – leaving rival gangs from all over the UK eying his territory.
There’s a war brewing and Logan’s trapped right in the middle, whether he likes it or not.
So that’s my haul for this week, and I am looking forward to all of them.
