It’s Monday all over again, and here is your bi-weekly reading recommendation.
What I’m reading this week:
Blurb from Amazon:
Zoe Maisey is a seventeen-year-old musical prodigy with a genius IQ. Three years ago, she was involved in a tragic incident that left three classmates dead. She served her time, and now her mother, Maria, is resolved to keep that devastating fact tucked far away from their new beginning, hiding the past even from her new husband and demanding Zoe do the same.
Tonight Zoe is giving a recital that Maria has been planning for months. It needs to be the performance of her life. But instead, by the end of the evening, Maria is dead.
In the aftermath, everyone—police, family, Zoe’s former solicitor, and Zoe herself—tries to piece together what happened. But as Zoe knows all too well, the truth is rarely straightforward, and the closer we are to someone, the less we may see.
I read Gilly MacMillan’s first novel, What She Knew, and really enjoyed it. I’m looking forward to finding out the twist in this one.
What else I’m starting this week:
Blurb from Amazon:
The page-turning psychological thriller from the author of #1 bestsellers The Magpies and Because She Loves Me.
It was supposed to be the trip of a lifetime, a final adventure before settling down. But after a perfect start, an encounter with a young couple on a night train forces Daniel and Laura to cut their dream trip short and flee home.
Back in London, Daniel and Laura vow never to talk about what happened that night. But as they try to fit into their old lives again, they realise they are in terrible danger—and that their nightmare is just beginning…
I haven’t started reading this one yet, but I’m super-excited because I loved, loved, loved his most recent novel, The Retreat. This is a 2015 release, but if I find an author whose work makes me read a book in a weekend, I’m libel to read all of their works. Can’t wait to read this one!
