Hey, everyone! I hope you are all doing okay.
So, this will be a short post. I’ll just share with you some books I got from NetGalley the past few days! This week I got myself 4 new titles. Check them out below.
Letting go of your daughter for the first time isn’t easy…
After years of IVF, Kirsten White is a devoted mum to Harriet – and she can’t believe the time has come to send her little girl off to school. But Harriet has now turned five, and she can’t stay Kirsten’s baby forever. It might be hard, but it’s time to entrust her daughter’s care to her new teacher.
… the classroom is the one place she should be safe.
Miriam Robertson has been waiting for the perfect little girl to walk into her class. She’s very picky… but when Harriet walks in, Miriam knows: this is the child she’s been waiting for.
Harriet knows not to speak to strangers. But her lovely new teacher isn’t a stranger at all. In fact, she’s her new best friend. And you can always trust your friends… can’t you?

Dr. Daniel Winters is living a fairy-tale life. He has a beachfront home in Malibu, a career as a respected pediatrician at a thriving Los Angeles practice, and a gorgeous new wife, Mia. For a man whose past was rife with mental illness, addiction, and thoughts of suicide, it seems too good to be true.
Then Daniel learns that a fellow pediatrician and his family were found slaughtered in their home. It’s just the first chip in the facade of Daniel’s perfect life. Little by little, everything starts to fall away. At work, his career becomes at risk when he’s asked to remain silent about a dangerous new drug. At home, Mia has gone from an affectionate newlywed to a mysterious woman carefully hiding secrets—and possibly a lover.
Then, another doctor is found dead, and as Mia’s behavior becomes increasingly suspicious, Daniel begins to wonder: Is paranoia getting the best of him…or has his fairy-tale life become a nightmare worse than he could have ever imagined?

If you can’t trust your therapist, who can you trust?
“You are not your thoughts.
You are not your past or your future.
You are only your body and this moment right now.”
This is the mantra that therapist Roberta Klein teaches her clients. It is supposed to be reassuring. It is supposed to centre them and keep them in the present. But what if it means something else?
Sam thinks it might. He can’t work out why Roberta is so against his relationship with his new girlfriend Nina. And his therapy sessions are becoming increasingly uncomfortable. It’s like Roberta needs him somehow. Shouldn’t it be the other way around?
And that’s when he begins to notice her patients. He’s never met any of them before, but now they are turning up everywhere.
On the streets. Living in his apartment block. In his bedroom at night.
And some of them are showing up dead.

For Greg Owens, this was supposed to be a chance to end years of back pain and escape his reliance on pain pills. If it all worked out, he could maybe even get back the life he left behind as the pills took control.
Instead, as the patients are cured of their physical pain, they encounter a different sort of pain building inside them – obsessive thoughts, depression, self-destruction. The side-effects grow worse, and the suspense ratchets tighter. The patients want answers and violent revenge, setting them on a collision course with a crazed doctor, determined to protect his life’s obsession.
