Where did the week go? An extra-large proportion was spent working, so there wasn’t much time to catch up with anything more than a chapter here or there. I did find time to pop into my favourite tea shop, T2 (I’m an addict) to celebrate their 18th birthday and add to my ever expanding tea collection. Luckily I did get a book in the mail to stop me from book drought 😉
Harlequin Australia very kindly sent me a copy of The Good Girl by Mary Kubica, which has been getting very good press. Released in August 2014 in Australia, the story is described as a thriller. Mia is kidnapped as part of an extortion plot, but things go wrong when the man hired to abduct her decides to follow a different plan to the one set by his bosses. Meanwhile, things become tense in Mia’s family, causing their lives to shatter.
I think this sounds like a great winter read (all day snuggled up under a blanket) but I think it could also be an excellent beach read. What do you think?
