Yes, I brought another ARC home from work a few days ago. I really need to show better restraint, if I plan to read from my existing stacks, don't I?!


by Clare Mackintosh
On Sale 5.3.16

The chilling international bestseller that everyone is talking about...

On a rainy afternoon, a mother's life is shattered as her son slips from her grip and runs into the street..

Jenna Gray moves to the remote Welsh coast, desperate to leave behind the heartbreak of the car accident and heal from the loss of her child and her painful past. At the same time, a pair of Bristol police investigators chase down one hopeless lead after another in the hit-and-run, finding themselves as drawn to each other as they are to the frustrating, twist-filled case before them.

What do you think? Too depressing? I love a good thriller and from all the glowing blurbs, this one sounds like a winner, in spite of the sad nature of the plot. It might be just the perfect read for my flights to Oregon later this year.

  1. I haven't heard of this one, but I'm always looking for a good thriller/mystery. As you determined, The Widow isn't one of them.

    1. I may have to dedicate an entire month to thrillers in order to read all these new releases!

  2. p.s. I love how this says at the top International Best Seller. Now that means something to me on the cover of a book!

  4. Well . . . I'm hardly one to talk about restraint, am I? :) If you're intrigued, I can't see how it can hurt to bring it home.

    As to the storyline . . . sounds okay to me but I would probably read anything with the words "Welsh coast" in the description.

    1. It can't hurt, Nancy, but I'm really trying to tackle the books I already own. But these were free, so it's not as if I'm spending money...

      Yes, "Welsh coast" was a big deciding factor for me, too!
