Welcome to Wednesday, and our WWW Wednesdays hosted by Sam, at Taking on a World of Words.

The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

***

I am very engaged by my current read:  The Cry, by Helen Fitzgerald.

 

61ftTFiOdpL._SL1280_

When a baby goes missing on a lonely roadside in Australia, it sets off a police investigation that will become a media sensation and dinner-table talk across the world.

Lies, rumours and guilt snowball, causing the parents, Joanna and Alistair, to slowly turn against each other.

Finally Joanna starts thinking the unthinkable: could the truth be even more terrible than she suspected? And what will it take to make things right?

I just finished reading another page-turner from Barbara Taylor Sissel:  Crooked Little Lies (click for my review); another book I could not put down! (A NetGalley e-ARC)

A story of deception, lies, and betrayal, I could not trust any of the characters….and some were more unlikeable than others.  But I always kept rooting for Lauren, the main character, the one whose voice felt vulnerable, but not deceptive.  Confused, but not lying.  Take a chance and read it, and see what you think!

Next, I plan to pick up a “lighter” read, set in wine country: Eight Hundred Grapes, (Goodreads link) by Laura Dave, is a story about secrets…and the consequences.

There are secrets you share, and secrets you hide…

Growing up on her family’s Sonoma vineyard, Georgia Ford learned some important secrets. The secret number of grapes it takes to make a bottle of wine: eight hundred. The secret ingredient in her mother’s lasagna: chocolate. The secret behind ending a fight: hold hands.

But just a week before her wedding, thirty-year-old Georgia discovers her beloved fiancé has been keeping a secret so explosive, it will change their lives forever.

Georgia does what she’s always done: she returns to the family vineyard, expecting the comfort of her long-married parents, and her brothers, and everything familiar. But it turns out her fiancé is not the only one who’s been keeping secrets…

A good week, don’t you think?  What has yours been like?  Come on and share!
