WWW Wednesdays – May 2, 2018

Welcome to WWW Wednesday (my first one)! This meme is hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words. The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?

The Elizas

I just started reading The Elizas last night! I’m only a chapter in, but it’s a very intriguing story. I really enjoyed reading Sara Shepard’s Pretty Little Liars series, so I’m excited to read more later today!

π π π π

When debut novelist Eliza Fontaine is found at the bottom of a hotel pool, her family at first assumes that it’s just another failed suicide attempt. But Eliza swears she was pushed, and her rescuer is the only witness.

Desperate to find out who attacked her, Eliza takes it upon herself to investigate. But as the publication date for her novel draws closer, Eliza finds more questions than answers. Like why are her editor, agent, and family mixing up events from her novel with events from her life? Her novel is completely fictional, isn’t it?

The deeper Eliza goes into her investigation while struggling with memory loss, the closer her life starts to resemble her novel until the line between reality and fiction starts to blur and she can no longer tell where her protagonist’s life ends and hers begins.

What did you recently finish reading?

Too Close To Home

I’m torn on Too Close To Home and if I liked it or not. I’ve definitely read better novels by Linwood Barclay so this one was a disappointment.

π π π π

Promise Falls isn’t the kind of community where a family is shot to death in their own home. But that is exactly what happened to the Langleys one sweltering summer night, and no one in this small upstate New York town is more shocked than their next-door neighbors, Jim and Ellen Cutter. They visited for the occasional barbecue, and their son, Derek, was friends with the Langleys’ boy, Adam; but how well did they really know their neighbors? That’s the question Jim Cutter is asking, and the answers he’s getting aren’t reassuring.

Albert Langley was a successful, well-respected criminal lawyer, but was he so good at getting criminals off that he was the victim of revenge? A debt his innocent family also paid in blood? From the town’s criminally corrupt mayor to the tragic suicide of a talented student a decade before, Promise Falls has more than its share of secrets. And Jim Cutter, failed artist turned landscaper, need look no further than his own home and his wife Ellen’s past to know that things aren’t always what they seem. Suddenly the Cutters must face the unthinkable: that a murderer isn’t just stalking too close to home but is inside it already. For the Langleys weren’t the first to die and they won’t be the last.

What do you think you’ll read next?

Dead Man's Footsteps

I’m excited to read the 4th novel in the Roy Grace series! There has been some hits and misses in this series, so I’m really hoping that Dead Man’s Footsteps will be a hit!

π π π π

“Abby stepped in the lift and the doors closed with a sound like a shovel smoothing gravel. She breathed in the smell of someone else’s perfum, and lemon-scented cleaning fluid. The lift jerked upwards a few inches. And now, too late to change her mind and get out, with the metal walls pressing in around her, they lunged sharply downwards. Abby was about to realize she had just made the worst mistake of her life . . . “

Amid the tragic unfolding mayhem of the morning of 9/11, failed Brighton businessman and ne’er-do-well Ronnie Wilson sees the chance of a lifetime, to shed his debts, disappear and reinvent himself in another country. Six years later, the discovery of the skeletal remains of a woman’s body in a storm drain in Brighton, leads Detective Superintendent Roy Grace on an enquiry spanning the globe, and into a desperate race against time to save the life of a woman being hunted down like an animal in the streets and alleys of Brighton.

  1. I like your choices. I didn’t read the Pretty Little Liars books, I am still about halfway through the series (Hopefully it will be on Netflix long enough for me to get to the bottom of who the A’s are) I look forward to your review on the Elizas

    1. Thank you. I never watched the TV series, but I heard that A is different between the show and the novels. They were a simple read, but there was way too many of them! I think there were 16 novels in total.

  2. I hate when an author you like disappoints you. That’s the worst. I hope things turn around. Happy reading and thanks for participating in WWW Wednesday!
