New On My Shelf This Week

Aria Fiction have come through for me again this week, with another thriller duo for my ‘Want To Read’ pile and spots secured on both Blog Tours, planned for mid-April.



Cover Image Of The Book 'Her Greatest Mistake' By Sarah SimpsonDo we ever know what goes on behind closed doors?

Eve and Gregg were the perfect couple, with the perfect marriage… which has become the perfect lie.

Gone is the charming, attentive Gregg – instead Eve wakes up each morning beside a manipulative and sinister man who controls his wife’s every move.

So Eve flees her immaculate marital home to keep herself, and young son Jack safe. Yet no matter how careful she has been, she knows Gregg will be relentless in his pursuit of his missing family.

And that one day, when she’s least expecting it, he will find them…

What was Eve’s greatest mistake?

Marrying Gregg? Leaving him? Or leaving him alive…?

TV journalist and media darling Oonagh O’Neil can sense a sinister coverup from the moment an elderly priest dies on the altar of his Glasgow church. His death comes as she is about to expose the shocking truth behind the closure of a Magdalene Institution. The Church has already tried to suppress the story. Is someone also covering their tracks?

DI Alec Davies is appointed to investigate the priest’s death. He and Oonagh go way back. Oonagh now faces the biggest decision of her life. But will it be hers to make? What secrets lie behind the derelict Institution’s doors? What sparked the infamous three-day riot that closed it? And what happened to the three Maggies who vowed to stay friends forever? From Ireland to Scotland. From life to death.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.

    • I do enjoy a good thriller, Laura. So bring on the intrigue and suspense!

      Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your week 🙂

    • Agh! I see we have a conspiracy theorist in our midst!

      You think that perhaps Eve’s involvement with Gregg, was not her only, or greatest mistake?

      I can’t wait to test out this thought process, when I read the book.

      Thanks for stopping by and have a good week 🙂

    • I have to admit to never having watched any of the Broadchurch series, despite it having been filmed quite close by to where we live.

      The TV remote is definitely hubbie’s domain of an evening and as we are both out during the day, I can’t even find the time to watch the show on catch-up. The reality is, that there are just so many great crime series on the various channels, that I could spend all my free time flicking between one and another of them, whilst hubbie is definitely more of a feature film person.

      The premise is most definitely current, relevant and trending right now, so I wonder just how close to the truth, author Theresa Talbot dares to go!

      Happy Reading and thanks for stopping by 🙂

  • Oh yes, these both sound exciting! I’m especially drawn to the plot in the first. (The last thing I need is to get started on another series!) I really like the covers on both, especially the second.

    I look forward to your blog tour entires!

    • Only the other day, hubbie was showing me the app on his phone, which was presumably used to create the great effect on those books covers – or at least something similar. He was busy ‘editing’ his picture of one of the local village streets, which is now in black and white, with the traditional English post box the only splash of colour, in bright red relief.

      The concept works really well to help create the atmosphere of a murder/mystery or suspense/thriller, but let’s just hope that the idea doesn’t get blown up out of all proportion and used for just about everything, which would spoil the niche effect.

      As ‘The Lost Children’, is the first book in this new series, I don’t mind too much about drawn into it, but both sound really good!

      Thanks for your comment and enjoy the rest of your week 🙂

    • On of the protagonists from this series is described as a “TV journalist and media darling” , which reflects the author’s background quite nicely.

      So I have great hopes that this story line will have been thoroughly investigated and well researched to provide as much authenticity as possible, given the relevant and current nature of the content.

      I am really looking forward to tracking Theresa’s work and seeing what story line she comes up with for the next book in the series.

      I always appreciate you stopping by and thanks for taking the time to comment 🙂

    • I have noticed that, like myself, you have quite eclectic tastes in your choice of reading genres.

      For myself though, I will always bond a little more easily with a good thriller and there are some excellent new authors entering the genre.

      Thanks for taking the time to comment and ‘Happy Reading’ 🙂

    • There seem to be a lot of book covers out there just recently, which have just a single splash of colour to them, usually a vivid or primary colour. At first I wasn’t sure whether the idea appealed to me or not, but the more I see the method used, the more I am liking it. It does seem to work particularly well with thrillers and suspense novels.

      Thanks for visiting this week 🙂

    • I am wondering at the significance of the discarded wellies, in the cover art for ‘Her Greatest Mistake’.

      Does this mean that Gregg catches up with Eve and Jack and perhaps snatches him? – or worse!

      Or does Eve have to make more than one flight from the violent Gregg?

      Guess I’ll find out when I get to read the book 🙂

    • Sarah Simpson, the author of ‘Her Greatest Mistake’, will be stopping by on Tuesday 17th April 2018, at about the mid-way point in her extensive Blog Tour. I shall be lucky enough to have grabbed a Guest Post for my spot and believe me, it is really interesting, so do visit if you get the chance 🙂
