Book Of The Month - August

I've read some fantastic books since starting this blog and I'd like to give some of them a bit more recognition. So I've decided to add a new feature to the blog and give a special mention to one outstanding book each month. Feel free to add your thoughts of the chosen book in the comments below or even recommend an outstanding book of your own.


Close My Eyes has been in my ever-increasing TBR pile but I finally reached it. After waiting so long to read it, I devoured it in a couple of days as I didn't want to put it down. It was well worth the wait. I'd been looking forward to reading it, especially as I'd heard good things about it, but I didn't expect to be so gripped by it.
Gen has been undergoing IVF treatment but each round has failed so far. Her husband is pushing for her to give it another go but Gen is still grieving for the daughter they lost eight years ago and isn't as keen to put themselves through it all again. I immediately felt for Gen but there was further heartache in store when a stranger knocks on the door and tells Gen that Beth, the daughter she lost, is still alive. From then on, Gen doesn't know who to trust but she does know she has to follow up on the information and find out if her child is still out there somewhere.
I thought the book was amazing, with plenty of action and twists and turns and you never know who to trust.
