It’s been a bit since I did a book club post.
It’s partially that I couldn’t get into anything. And partially because I haven’t had a lot of time to just sit and read how I like. I was basically catching a few pages here and there and it’s not my favorite way to read.
But I have some good ones for you today!
‘Are you my mummy?’
Tessa Markham returns home to find a child in her kitchen. He thinks she’s his mother. But Tessa doesn’t have any children.
She doesn’t know who the little boy is or how he got there.
After contacting the police, Tessa is suspected of taking the mystery child. Her whole life is turned upside down. And then her husband reveals a secret of his own…
Tessa isn’t sure what to believe or who to trust. Because someone is lying. To find out who, she must confront her painful past. But is the truth more dangerous than Tessa realises?
I decided that I do like thrillers and this one was super exciting.
The end twist I totally did not see coming.
This book has all the twists and turns I like to keep me interested and a heartbreaking secret.
Maddie Townsend might live in a town called Serenity and have the best friends a woman could ask for, but her life is overturned when her husband leaves her for a younger woman. With her three children heartbroken from the change, Maddie has a lot to contend with. On top of it all, after years outside the workforce, she must dust off her business skills to take charge of her best friends’ newest project—planning the town’s only fitness spa for women.
When her son’s developing anger issues begin to affect his passion for baseball, Maddie knows she must step in to help. She didn’t expect to develop feelings for her son’s coach, the handsome Cal Maddox, and to learn he has feelings for her, too. But gossip travels quickly in a small town, and Maddie and Cal’s relationship may threaten both their reputations and careers.
Then again, he could be the one man in all of South Carolina who can help her find serenity after all.
I love Joanna Garcia from when she was on Reba and when I saw she had a new show on Netflix. Of course I loved the show and figured I would read the books.
Stealing Home is basically Maddie’s story and pretty much follows the show.
The best part of the book is the friendship between the ladies and I like that it totally comes through on screen too.
I’ve already moved on to the second book, which is Dana Sue’s story.
Yes, I bought this book.
No I didn’t learn anything I didn’t already know.
My overall thoughts are that it’s sad that this family’s dirty laundry has to be played out in front of the world.
At the end of the day, I hope they can find a way mend fences.
I also hope that after this pandemic is over, they’ll still be wearing their fabulous outfits!
