Currently Reading – Fishnet by Kirstin Innes

fishnet by kirstin innes

Twenty-year-old Rona Leonard walks out of her sister Fiona’s flat and disappears. Six years on, worn down by a tedious job, child care and the aching absence in her life, Fiona’s existence is blown apart by the revelation that, before she disappeared, Rona worked as a prostitute.

Determined to uncover the truth, Fiona embarks on a quest to investigate the industry that claimed her sister. Drawn into a complex world, Fiona’s life tilts on its axis as she makes shocking discoveries that challenge everything she’s ever believed …

Bittersweet, sensual and rich, Fishnet is a beautifully told story of love and grief, interwoven with a meticulous, controversial account of the sex industry and its workers. An outstanding piece of fiction, it questions the ways in which we perceive women, their interactions with the world and with each other.

Finished Recently – The Little Gate-Crasher by Gabrielle Kaplan-Mayer

The Little Gate Crasher by Gabrielle Kaplan-mayer

Mace Bugen might have been an achondroplastic dwarf—forty-three inches tall with an average-sized head and a torso set on small, twisted legs—but that didn’t mean he was an idiot or a pushover. In truth, he was smarter than most; over the years, he learned to effectively turn what society in those days called a handicap into a powerful tool he could use to his advantage.

At a time before cell phones or Andy Warhol, you could say that Bugen was the world’s first practitioner of the celebrity selfie. Or maybe you could say more accurately that he was the world’s first selfie photobomber. Over a period of three decades, using his unique combination of guile, cunning, handicap, and sense of entitlement, Mace engineered photos of himself with some of the biggest celebrities of his day, among them Muhammad Ali, Jonas Salk, Jane Russell, Sammy Davis Jr, Joe DiMaggio, and Richard Nixon.

The Cottage on Lily Pond Lane Four by Emily Harvale

Mia Ward was amazed to inherit her great-aunt Matilda’s thatched cottage in the tiny seaside village of Little Pondale – especially as Mia didn’t know she had a great-aunt Matilda. She was even more astonished to discover she’d only inherit the place if she lives there for a year.

But a lot can happen in a very short time, and life in Little Pondale is not going quite as Mia hoped. She may have finally beaten one fear, but now heartbreak threatens to drown her.

And when at last, she starts to unravel the mystery of Matilda’s past, she uncovers an extraordinary plan for her own future. Now just who can Mia trust?

As the nights draw in and cold winds steal through Sunbeam Cottage, she turns to an unlikely source for comfort and support. But with the fortune teller’s warning still ringing in her ears, is Mia about to make the biggest mistake of her life?
