To take part all you need to do is answer the following questions:
So here’s my 3 W’s for the week.
One Perfect Lie by Lisa Scottoline- This book ended up surprising me though I am still not sure if I liked it or not. The story began in a way that got me super interested in finding out what was going on. A few chapters in and it took a rather dramatic turn. I sort of felt deceived like I had been lied to and made to believe that something totally different was going on. It was still interesting but not in a way that I expected. In addition, I found out the answer to one of the main mysteries by reading the blurb. My full review should be up by tomorrow.
An Extraordinary Union by Alyssa Cole – As I explained last week, I liked the premise of this book but the romance was a bit on the heavy side for me so I ended up not enjoying the book as much as I thought I would.
Sleep Tight by Caroline Mitchell- This was great. It’s the second book in the Detective Ruby Preston series and I think it is even better than the first book. You can read my review here.
My Husband The Stranger by Rebecca Done
A tragic accident. A terrible injury. And in a moment, the man you fell in love with is transformed into a total stranger. How would you cope? What would you do? Would you be strong enough to stay? But what if you found out that it wasn’t an accident at all…?
It took a bit of time for to get into this story. I wasn’t feeling it at first. However, I am now totally hooked. I can’t wait to get home in the evening and finish reading the remaining chapters.

A Traitor in the Family by Nicholas Searle
‘While her husband prepared to murder a young man he had never met, Bridget O’Neill completed her packing for Christmas with her in-laws.’
Francis O’Neill is a terrorist, trained to kill for his cause. Bridget is his wife, expected to be loyal and stand by her husband. She has learned not to hope for much more, until the day she glimpses, for the first time, the chance of a new life. A life without violence, without secrets, and without knocks on the door in the dead of night. A life without her husband.
But what if freedom for Bridget means grave danger for Francis?
