My Book Collection!

Hello bloggers!


This is going to be My Book Collection blog post! Lately I've been more into reading so I thought I would show you all the books I have. I will also write the blurb/synopsis after the book so you know what it's about.

Sophie Hannah - The Carrier

 When her plane is delayed overnight, Gaby Struthers finds herself forced to share a hotel room with a stranger:
a terrified young woman names Lauren Cookson -  but why is she so afraid of Gaby in particular? Lauren won't explain.
Instead, she blurts out something about an innocent man going to prison for a murder he didn't commit, and Gaby soon suspects that Lauren's presence on her flight can't be a coincidence. Because the murder victim is Francine Breary, the wife of the only man Gaby has ever truly loved.
Tim Breary has confessed, and even provided the police with evidence. The only thing he hasn't given them is a motive. He claims to have no idea why he murdered his wife . . .

But even in the safety of James' arms, Sinead knows something isn't right. Patrick might have disappeared, but he is still there, somewhere. Watching her . . .

But, though she builds a life, forges friendships, makes a home, she cannot forget what she has left behind; her children, her family, her heritage.
