My Week In Books w/e 31st March

Well that was March, the clocks sprang forward an hour and the weather definitely feels more spring like. The months are flying by and sometimes its scary to think that we are already a quarter of the way through the year already.

So this week I have not read that many books. Only two and part way through a third one, I have read but not been able to concentrate for the length of time I normally would. This does not bother me, it means my head has got enough going on and once it sorts itself out and makes space again I will be back up and reading again 🙂

So lets have a look at the TWO whole books I read this week 🙂 🙂 🙂

The Taken Girls by G.D. Sanders – I received an e-copy of this from Avon Books via NetGalley.

Synopsis – Someone is watching them…

When a missing teenage girl reappears unharmed but pregnant, the case falls to DI Edina Ogborne, the newest recruit of Canterbury Police. But Ed’s already got her hands full with a team who don’t want her, an ex who won’t quit, and terrible guilt over a secret from her past.

As Ed investigates the case, she discovers Canterbury has seen this crime not once, but several times before. And when Ed and her detectives encounter missing historic police files, falsified school records, and Ed’s new lover as a prime suspect, it becomes clear that the system has been corrupted.

Can Ed find the kidnapper behind these depraved crimes before he strikes again? Or has time already run out?


After She’s Gone by Camilla Grebe – I won a copy of this book via Readers First.

Synopsis – In the two years that have passed since psychological profiler Hanne Lagerlind-Schön survived an attempted murder, she and investigator Peter Lindgren have rekindled their love, and a recent extended vacation in Greenland seems to have eased the symptoms of her early onset dementia. But when the pair is called back to Sweden to investigate a cold case involving the murder of a young girl whose remains were found in a cairn ten years earlier, the icy winter conditions and stress of the job take their toll, and she feels her mind beginning to slip. Desperate not to lose her job–or worse, Peter–Hanne begins keeping a diary, meticulously chronicling everything she’s worried about forgetting.

As Hanne and Peter get closer to solving the case of the murdered girl, they both suddenly go missing. The local police have no leads. The only witness is a teenage boy who sees a woman get into a strange car in the middle of the night but, guarding a secret of his own, he is unable to come forward. The boy, Jake, discovers the notebook Hanne left behind, and reads her notes, fascinating by the unfolding murder case until he makes a shocking realization: his own father was a key suspect in the investigation. Jake becomes determined to uncover the truth on his own. 

Hanne reappears days later, with no memory of where she’s been–or who she is. Without her notebook, she is lost and terrified, driven by a single thought: find Peter.
