"the Cove" by L J Ross, romantic thriller set in Cornwall, which looks like it might feature a stalker..

I’m reading Who’s Lying Now by Susan Lewis, a family drama/missing person mystery.

I’m also reading via Pigeonhole No Secrets by David Jackson, a thriller which also features missing girls so I hope I don’t get confused!

I'm re-reading Queen of the Conqueror-The Life of Matilda, Wife of William I by Tracy Borman.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

I read and own a UK paperback copy of that book! I bought it in London while on vacation a few years ago.

I’m reading Girl, Woman, Other by Bernadine Evaristo. It’s for my local book group. I’m not sure I’m liking the writing style but I shall persevere for now.

I’m also reading via Pigeonhole The Land, The Land by Robin Hawden, which is set in the Yorkshire Dales.
