The Woman in the Window By A.J. Finn

The Woman in the Window By A.J. Finn

What did she see?

It’s been ten months since Anna Fox last left her home. Ten months during which she has haunted the rooms of her old New York house, lost in her memories, too terrified to step outside.

Anna’s lifeline to the real world is her window, where she sits, watching her neighbours. When the Russells move in, Anna is instantly drawn to them. A picture-perfect family, they are an echo of the life that was once hers.

But one evening, a scream rips across the silence, and Anna witnesses something horrifying. Now she must uncover the truth about what really happened. But if she does, will anyone believe her? And can she even trust herself?

My Thoughts:

I liked the sound of the storyline, it evolves around Anna and her claustrophobic world that she lives in. Reading this book I felt as though I was dragged into Anna’s world and I didn’t like it, it made me feel on edge. I didn’t guess the ending but it left me feeling a little deflated. There could of been so much more to make it a better story.

A Patchwork Family By Cathy Bramley

Can Gina Moss swap an easy life for a happy one?

Gina has been going with the flow for years – she’d rather go with the flow than face any conflict. She runs her childminding business from her cottage at the edge of The Evergreens, a charming Victorian house and home to three octogenarians who have far too much fun for their age.

But when The Evergreens is put up for sale, Gina and the other residents face losing their home. To protect her business and save her elderly friends from eviction, Gina must make a stand and fight for the first time in her life.

As Gina’s ideas for saving The Evergreens get bigger and bolder, she starts to believe it might just be possible. The only thing is, does she believe in herself?

My Thoughts:

All of Cathy’s books are brilliant, this being right up there too. I immediately warmed to Gina, she is an inspirational woman who is very kind and caring. I liked how the other characters stories came up and how Gina helps them. I liked the storyline and wished for Gina to start believing in herself more. I look forward to looking where this tor y goes on the next book of Cathy’s. This book had me in tears but also had me laughing as some of the.children she looks after are hilarious, and Bing too is really funny. This is a must read.

The Accidental Love Letter By Olivia Beirne

The Accidental Love Letter By Olivia Beirne

Would you open a love letter that wasn’t meant for you?

Bea used to feel confident, outgoing and fun, but she’s not sure where that person went.

Over the last few months, she’s found herself becoming reclusive and withdrawn. And despite living with her two best friends, she’s never felt lonelier. To make things worse, she’s become so dependent on her daily routine, she’s started to slip out of everyone else’s.

But when a mysterious battered envelope covered in stars lands on her doormat, Bea wonders if she could find the courage to open it.

What’s written inside might change everything..

My Thoughts:

If you want an escapism read that will have you laughing out loud, this is the book for you. The story centres around Bea, when life gets the better of her and she finds herself withdrawn, she when she really needs a boost, a unexpected letter turns up. It’s addressed to her but does she really want to open it? I love the storyline and I loved how involved she gets further on into the story. It made my heart all warm and fuzzy. I found quite a few laugh out loud moments especially the news story that poor Bea has to write about. I look forward to reading more of Olivia`s books.

Pretty Guilty Women By Gina Lamanna

Pretty Guilty Women By Gina Lamanna

Why would four women confess to the same murder?

At the luxurious Serenity Spa Resort on the Californian coast, guests arrive ready to celebrate what is set to be the wedding of the year. But things are about to go horribly wrong . . .

Among them are four brilliant but desperate women – Ginger, Lulu, Emily and Kate – all harbouring a secret they’d do anything to protect.

Just twenty-four hours later, a man is found dead at the hotel. In the ensuing investigation, each of these women confess to the crime, insisting they acted alone.

The police know they’re lying, but why?

Only these four women know the answer.

And they’re not telling . . .

My Thoughts:

One word for this book amazing. The story is about four very different women, some of them know each other and some of them don’t know anyone. Throughout the story we hear each of the women’s stories, they are all brought together for a wedding. I like how when the police are interviewing them, the style of font changes. I liked how they all confess but you don’t actually know what happened till the end. It kept me guessing. I like the uniqueness of the storyline, four women, a murder and a lie. Should it be? And as women we should all stick together.

My thoughts:

I really enjoyed this read, it had everything you want in a great read but also a little more. It is set in the last and present so the chapters alternate between the two eras. There is also romance and secrets become revealed. As much as I enjoyed reading the present story, the past story really fascinated me, wondering what would become of the Spitfire pilot but also why he wanted to stay hiddrn. A very interesting read that I couldn’t put down.
