Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for One Way Out by A.A. Dhand.
‘Bradford is under siege, hundreds of people held to ransom.
The demand? A simple exchange – four lives for a thousand.
The government is firm, they will not negotiate.
But DCI Harry Virdee’s wife is one of the hostages.
Sometimes the only way to save lives is to take them.’

So I kind of forgot to do monthly wrap up posts for April and May, but not this month! This month I am on it! Most of my reads this month were for book tours, only two of them were from my TBR pile – I think I’ve become a bit addicted to tours! I think it’s quite a good mix of books though – some thrillers, a heartbreaker, and one quite controversial one…

But he is married…

Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Distant Signs by Anne Richter.
‘Distant Signs’ is an intimate portrait of two families spanning three generations amidst turbulent political change, behind and beyond the Berlin Wall.
In 1960s Germany, Margret, a professor’s daughter from the city, meets and marries Hans, from a small village in the Thuringian forest. The couple struggle to contend with their different backgrounds, and the emotional scars they bear from childhood in the aftermath of war. As East German history gradually unravels, with collision of the personal and political, acutely observed vignettes quietly reveal their two families’ hidden truths.’

Hello, and welcome to my stop on the book tour for Without A Trace!
Someone took her.
Unless she was never there…
A little girl has gone missing.
Lily was last seen being tucked into bed by her adoring mother, Nova. But the next morning, the bed is empty except for a creepy toy rabbit.
Has Nova’s abusive ex stolen his ‘little bunny’ back for good?
At first, Officer Ellie James assumes this is a clear custody battle. Until she discovers that there are no pictures of the girl and her drawers are full of unused toys and brand new clothes that have never been worn…
Is Ellie searching for a missing child who doesn’t actually exist?’

‘Everyone has secrets. Even those who seem to be perfect…
On a rainy October evening, Cecelia Wilborg – loving wife, devoted mother, tennis club regular – is waiting for her kids to finish their swimming lesson. It’s been a long day. She can almost taste the crisp, cold glass of Chablis she’ll pour for herself once the girls are tucked up in bed.
But what Cecelia doesn’t know, is that this is the last time life will feel normal. Tonight she’ll be asked to drop a little boy home, a simple favour that will threaten to expose her deepest, darkest secret…’

‘Karen Havelin’s Please Read This Leaflet Carefully is a life told in reverse and a subversion of what we expect from stories of illness. Having been diagnosed with endometriosis in her twenties, we follow Laura Fjellstad in her struggle to live a normal life across New York, Paris and Oslo, fueled by her belief that to survive her chronic illness she must be completely self-reliant.
Flowing backwards from 2016 to 1995, we meet Laura’s younger selves: her healthier selves. Laura as a daughter, a figure skater, a lover, and a mother – finally leading a life her own teenage self would be in awe of.’
