**Weekly Wrap Up**


Good morning everyone as usual I’ve managed to read another two books this week, although I would like to read more I just haven’t got the time at the moment, so at least I’m being consistent by reading two books 😂😂

Books I read this week

ARC’s I received this week

I am now officially putting myself on a self imposed NetGalley ban, well after the latest downloads (see below). I’m drowning in books at the moment,  and as I was cleaning my bookshelf this morning I realised there were far to many fabulous books sat there begging to be read, so from today until further notice I shall be giving NetGalley a wide berth 🙈


Book description


When Laura Bjely goes missing during a storm on the Cote d’Azur, the only thing her friend Jan finds is her smartphone – with a disturbing film in the memory.

Back in Berlin, Jan’s neighbour is discovered with a bloody message left on her forehead.

As Jan searches for answers about what happened to Laura, he is thrown into a nightmare of madness and murder.


Book description

Bombs detonate in a busy souk, causing massive devastation.

An explosion rips apart a mosque, killing and injuring those inside.

But this isn’t the Middle East – this is Cardiff . . .

In a city where tensions are already running high, DC Will MacReady and his colleagues begin the desperate hunt for the attacker. If they knew the ‘why’, then surely they can find the ‘who’? But that isn’t so easy, and time is fast running out . . .

MacReady is still trying to prove himself after the horrific events of the previous year, which left his sergeant injured and his job in jeopardy, so he feels sidelined when he’s asked to investigate a vicious knife attack on a young woman.

But all is not as it seems with his new case, and soon MacReady must put everything on the line in order to do what is right.

What if your dream home became your worst nightmare?

Brett and Emily Larson have just moved into a new home, deep in the countryside in upstate New York, when they discover human bones in their garden.

As the police start to piece together the clues, three things become clear:

The bones are recent.
They are not here by accident.
They are a message.

When a mysterious coded note is found nearby, Brett and Emily start to suspect that the bones aren’t the only thing that’s hidden, and the danger may be greater than they thought.

As the investigation progresses, what secrets will be uncovered at the heart of the Larson house? Can Brett uncover the shocking truth – before it’s too late?

Fast-paced, compelling and full of twists, this heart-pounding thriller will keep you turning the pages until the very end.


Book descripton

Compelling and explosive, Give Me the Child brings together the propulsion of a thriller and the twists of a psychological suspense.

A devastating secret.

But as the events behind Ruby’s arrival emerge – her mother’s death, her connection to Cat – Cat questions whether her decision to help Ruby has put her own daughter at risk.

Do we get the children we deserve?

Cat’s research tells her there’s no such thing as evil. Her history tells her she’s paranoid. But her instincts tell her different. And as the police fight to control a sudden spate of riots raging across the capital, Cat faces a race against time of her own…

The Walls by Hollie Overton 

Book description

What if you could get away with murder?

Single mom Kristy Tucker works as press agent for the Texas Department of Corrections – handling everything on death row, from inmate interviews to chronicling the last moments during an execution. Her job exposes Kristy to the worst of humanity and it’s one that’s beginning to take its toll.

So when Kristy meets Lance Dobson, her son’s martial arts instructor, she believed she finally found her happy ending. She was wrong.

Kristy soon discovers that Lance is a monster. Forced to endure his verbal and physical abuse, Kristy is serving her own life sentence . . . unless she’s willing to take matters into her hands. Perfectly poised to exploit the criminal justice system she knows so well, Kristy sets out to get rid of Lance – permanently.

THE WALLS explores domestic violence, the morality of murder and how far one woman will go to protect her family.

      The Walls looks very intriguing and it does sound although it could be a good book, I read Baby Doll by the same author and wasn’t that keen on it, though to be fair most bloggers loved it
