Stacking Shelves: 17th June, 2016

STSsmallThis week, for the first time, I am joining in with Tynga at Tynga’s Reviews and Marlene of Reading Reality for Stacking Shelves, where you share the real and virtual books you have added to your shelves in the last week.

For me this week, they were all virtual….

First up is Buried Secrets by Lisa Cutts, which I jumped at requesting after recently reading Mercy Killing and really enjoying it…I have high hopes for this one.

35227796To most people, Detective Inspector Milton Bowman appears to have an ideal life. But some secrets aren’t buried deep enough.

After a tragic car accident, and a shocking murder, DI Milton’s colleagues have to start digging into every aspect of his life.

Suspicion and disbelief creep into their lives as a web of deceit unfolds – the Bowman family, friends and even colleagues come under suspicion. No one is to be trusted.

Nothing is as it appears.

I bought two books, both deals on Amazon (my favourite thing).  First was the monthly deal, which gets good reviews and sounds right up my streets…

33128934Gina Royal is the definition of average—a shy Midwestern housewife with a happy marriage and two adorable children. But when a car accident reveals her husband’s secret life as a serial killer, she must remake herself as Gwen Proctor—the ultimate warrior mom.

With her ex now in prison, Gwen has finally found refuge in a new home on remote Stillhouse Lake. Though still the target of stalkers and Internet trolls who think she had something to do with her husband’s crimes, Gwen dares to think her kids can finally grow up in peace.

But just when she’s starting to feel at ease in her new identity, a body turns up in the lake—and threatening letters start arriving from an all-too-familiar address. Gwen Proctor must keep friends close and enemies at bay to avoid being exposed—or watch her kids fall victim to a killer who takes pleasure in tormenting her. One thing is certain: she’s learned how to fight evil. And she’ll never stop

Second was a book I have meant to buy for ages but not gotten round to (meaning I’m now behind in what is supposed to be a very good series)…

29997926When catching a killer isn’t enough…

When the naked, battered body of an unidentified teenager is found dumped in an alleyway, post-mortem finds evidence of a harrowing series of events.

Another teenage death with the same MO pushes DI Hannah Robbins and her team on the Nottingham City division Major Crimes Unit, to their limits, and across county borders. In a race against the clock they attempt to unpick a thick web of lies and deceit to uncover the truth behind the deaths.

But it doesn’t stop there. Just how far are the team willing to push themselves to save the next girl?

Finally I had a book come through from the library that had been on hold for a while…

32991958My name is Amber Reynolds. There are three things you should know about me:

1. I’m in a coma.
2. My husband doesn’t love me anymore.
3. Sometimes I lie.

Find on: Amazon UK / US / Goodreads

Not much to go on for this one is there?  I don’t remember much about it myself either so I’m hoping that it was worth the wait (it seems to be have been on hold at the library forever!).  Does it grab your eye?  What about the others – have you read them or would you based on the blurbs?

Fingers crossed I enjoy!

  1. Enjoy your haul! Sometimes I Lie caught my eye….and I, too, downloaded the Kindle deal, Stillhouse Lake, after eyeing it for a few days.

    Thanks for sharing, and have a great week.


  2. Thank you for sharing Emma – I love the premise around Sometimes I Lie… how clever:). I’m looking forward to hearing what you make of it. Have fun with your reading haul:)


  3. I love that cover of Stillhouse Lake- something about the boat on the water with the trees in the background. Good stuff! Buried Secrets looks great too!

    And I love the ambiguity and possible awesomeness of Sometimes I Lie. I LOVE that title and the blurb has me really curious!!


    • I have to say the cover was the first thing on Stillhouse Lake that caught my eye. As for Sometimes I Lie I agree…it makes you want to pick it up!


    • I almost hope I don’t like it then as I have so many authors I feel I need to catch up on reading, if I like this I will feel the need to read all of them!


  4. Amazon deals are the best. Sometimes I Lie, seems like it would be good for as much detail isn’t on the book. Enjoy all your new books, happy reading.
