This Week In Books

Lypsyy Lost & Found my Wednesday post gives you a taste of what I am reading this week. A similar meme is run by Taking on a World of Words

Wow the end of August already and I’m ready for some autumn evenings reading, these differ to my summer evenings reading as they tend to have the addition of a blanket to keep me warm!!

At the moment I am reading A Man With One of Those Faces by Caimh McDonnell, a new writer of Irish crime fiction, in readiness for publication on 5 September 2016.

A Man With One of those Faces


The First time somebody tried to kill him was an accident.
The second time was deliberate.
Now Paul Muchrone finds himself on the run with nobody to turn to except a nurse who has read one-too-many crime novels and a renegade copper with a penchant for violence. Together they must solve one of the most notorious crimes in Irish history…
…or else they’ll be history. Goodreads

I have just finished The Twins by Saskia Sarginson which made for compelling reading, my review will follow shortly.

The Twins

See yesterday’s post for the synopsis and excerpt

Next I am going to read The Ice Beneath Her by Camilla Grebe which will be published on 8 September 2016 by Bonnier Zaffre – it has been billed as ‘No ordinary psychological thriller’ so I’m eager to see what it has in store for me.

The Ice Beneath Her


A young woman is found beheaded in an infamous business tycoon’s marble-lined hallway. The businessman, scandal-ridden CEO of the retail chain Clothes & More, is missing without a trace. But who is the dead woman? And who is the brutal killer who wielded the machete?
Rewind two months earlier to meet Emma Bohman, a sales assistant for Clothes & More, whose life is turned upside down by a chance encounter with Jesper Orre. Insisting that their love affair is kept secret, he shakes Emma’s world a second time when he suddenly leaves her with no explanation. As frightening things begin to happen to Emma, she suspects Jesper is responsible.
But why does he want to hurt her? And how far would he go to silence his secret lover? NetGalley
