**Weekly Wrap Up**

Another week gone and I managed to read two books which I’m  happy about one was the top secret ARC I mentioned in last weeks post, my lips remained tightly shut for now but when I can share you will be the first to know until then…..🤐🤐🤐

Books I read this week

 

 

The Good Daughter by Karin Slaughter I’m a huge fan of this author but I won’t be sharing my review just yet as I’m saving it until Monday 17th July when it’s my stop on the blog tour.

What I’m hoping to read next week

Beneath The Surface by Sibel Hodge

Manipulated Lives by H.A. Leuschel

Books I bought this week

I know I said I was on a self imposed book ban until my NetGalley pile had decreased, but in my defence it’s an Ebook so in my world that doesn’t count, although the lovely Dee over at http://www.noveldeelights.com was quick to point out that it does! I’ve always been a rebel  😂😂

Book description

The heat of the Florida summer is relentless. Lucas is coasting to retirement in a mundane Florida police precinct. His world falls apart when a brutal serial killer codenamed Mechanic lands on his patch.

Three years ago they thought Mechanic was dead. But Mechanic is very much alive and the savage ritualistic murders continue. No family is safe from the threat of slaughter at this sadistic killer’s hands.

Mechanic is always one step ahead and Lucas is forced to operate outside the law.

Who can he trust?

The shocking truth is more terrifying than Lucas could ever imagine … and he has to put his life on the line to get it.

ARC’s I received this week

Ooopps I popped over to NetGalley to leave a review and some how managed to “click” on a couple of books, so there goes my 84% 🙈(Holds head in shame)

Book description

How do you catch a killer who knows your every move?

She drew the curtains and returned to the kitchen where she removed the bottle of vodka from the freezer and reached for the large kitchen knife. If he dared to come back, she’d be ready for him.

When a body is found hanging in the remains of a dock-side warehouse, Detective Kate Matthews is called to the scene. Recently transferred following the death of a colleague, Kate is yet to see a successful prosecution over the line. But this won’t be an easy win…

Someone is watching her: leaving her clues in her home, taunting her to throw the case and threatening the life of her little girl.

As more bodies begin to surface and Kate’s stalker closes in, her instincts tell her that there is a link hidden among the victims’ missing pieces. This is a killer with a message and Kate must race against the clock to solve his twisted riddle.

Book description

How far is too far when it comes to protecting your marriage? Find out in this relentlessly paced novel of psychological suspense.

“Gripping, thought-provoking, and irresistible.”—Dean Koontz

Newlyweds Alice and Jake are a picture-perfect couple. Alice, once a singer in a well-known rock band, is now a successful lawyer. Jake is a partner in an up-and-coming psychology practice. Their life together holds endless possibilities. After receiving an enticing wedding gift from one of Alice’s prominent clients, they decide to join an exclusive and mysterious group known only as The Pact.

The goal of The Pact seems simple: to keep marriages happy and intact. And most of its rules make sense. Always answer the phone when your spouse calls. Exchange thoughtful gifts monthly. Plan a trip together once per quarter. . . .

Never mention The Pact to anyone.

Alice and Jake are initially seduced by the glamorous parties, the sense of community, their widening social circle of like-minded couples.

And then one of them breaks the rules.

The young lovers are about to discover that for adherents to The Pact, membership, like marriage, is for life. And The Pact will go to any lengths to enforce that rule.

For Jake and Alice, the marriage of their dreams is about to become their worst nightmare.
