Last week. Hmm, I can barely remember it except that the books were good and it was busy! It’s really humid and sticky today so I think I’ll keep this short and move on to the books.
An Unsuitable March by Joanna Trollope (available tomorrow) arrived from Pan Macmillan. I really like her books, and this one sounds great. Rose and Tyler have just got engaged and everything is great…except for their five adult children from previous relationships. Each has issues of their own and an opinion on the love life of their parent. Should Rose and Tyler make themselves happy, or everyone else?
Almost Love by Louise O’Neill (released 13th March) came from Hachette and this is a story I think will be very emotional. Sarah falls in love with Matthew, but as time goes on, she gives up everything for him. Her friends, family and job are all on the line but Sarah is addicted to Matthew. Who said love wasn’t meant to hurt?
Too Close to Breathe by Olivia Kiernan (available 10th April) was a prize from Hachette. It’s a police thriller with DCS Frankie Sheehan investigating the murder of a scientist. But as Frankie investigates, she learns that this is only one small part of the picture…
I also bought two new releases. Red Clocks by Leni Zumas fits my need for dystopian fiction about women. It’s set in an America where abortion and IVF are banned and each embryo is given the rights of life and property. Four women in a small town are trying to deal with their own questions on motherhood, which culminates in a modern day witch hunt…
An American Marriage by Tayari Jones tells the story of Celestial and Roy. Their new marriage should be a dream – until Roy is sentenced to a lengthy gaol term for a crime he didn’t commit. Celestial seeks comfort elsewhere, but when Roy is released, should she move on or go back?
