This week I began a new book that is keeping me up late.  It’s The Unforgotten by Laura Powell a NetGalley read releasing March 17, 2016- and isn’t this just a beautiful cover!?  So far a great mystery too!

“All that exists in this second, in this street, is the headline board.  At first, Mary reads it again and things she must be hallucinating, but she screams again, and again it comes out as a peculiar, raspy cough.”

Book Description:

It’s 1956 and fifteen-year-old Betty Broadbent has never left the Cornish fishing village of St Steele or ventured far beyond the walls of the boarding house run by her erratic mother. But when the London press pack descends to report on a series of gruesome murders of young women, Betty’s world changes. In particular she is transfixed by mysterious and aloof reporter, Mr Gallagher.

As the death toll rises, an unlikely friendship blossoms between Betty and Gallagher. But as their bond deepens, they find themselves entangled with the murders and each is forced to make a devastating choice, one that will shape their own lives – and the life of an innocent man – forever.
