Mailbox Monday and What I’m Reading: 18/7/22

Another busy week with lots going on, and lots of rain. All my new books made it here safe and dry:

Odd Hours by Ania Bas (available 2nd August) arrived thanks to Allen & Unwin. Gosia lives in her own head in between her supermarket shifts and poorly lit flatshare, but a chance encounter snaps her out of it. Could there be more to life than she imagined?

The Keepers of the Lighthouse by Kaye Dobbie (available 3rd August) arrived from Harlequin. Set between 1882 and 2020, the focus is on the Benevolence Island lighthouse, site of a shipwreck with few survivors. But those passengers have secrets that drift into the current day, leading to acts of sabotage and changing character Nina forever…

A Recipe for Family by Tori Haschka (available 3rd August too) was from Simon & Schuster. It’s about how food connects three women. Stella needs an au pair to help with her daughter and step-daughter while her husband is away. But her mother in law doesn’t agree and has her own battles to fight. Ava, the au pair, enters their lives after the loss of her own mother and starts sharing her family recipes.

  1. You’ve got a really nice mix of books here I think, with different genres and vibes going on! I think ‘A Recipe for Family’ caught my eye because of the cover, but then I do also think food is such a central thing for family to me that I can completely see myself in the blurb! I hope you have a lovely week and that you enjoy your new reads 🙂
