Charity Shop Book Haul #2

It wasn't too long ago that I did my first Charity Shop book haul, but we are back at it again with three more books that I purchased before we went into lockdown.
Charity Shop Book Haul #2
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
I originally wanted to read this when we stayed in a cabin in the New Forest, they had this book on their bookshelf. I'm glad I've been able to find it, especially for only 99p.

Synopsis
Who are you?

What have we done to each other?

These are the questions Nick Dunne finds himself asking on the morning of his fifth wedding anniversary when his wife Amy suddenly disappears. The police suspect Nick. Amy's friends reveal that she was afraid of him, that she kept secrets from him. He swears it isn't true. A police examination of his computer shows strange searches. He says they weren't made by him. And then there are the persistent calls on his mobile phone.

So what did happen to Nick's beautiful wife?
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
The Little French Guesthouse by Helen Pollard
I hadn't actually heard of this book before, but when I read the blurb in the Charity Shop it sounded like an easy, loving read similar to those which I have read of late.

Synopsis
When Emmy Jamieson arrives at La Cour des Roses, a beautiful guesthouse in the French countryside, she can't wait to spend two weeks relaxing with boyfriend Nathan. Their relationship needs a little TLC and Emmy is certain this holiday will do the trick. But they've barely unpacked before he scarpers with Gloria, the guesthouse owner's cougar wife.

Rupert, the ailing guesthouse owner, is shell-shocked. Feeling somewhat responsible, and rather generous after a bottle (or so) of wine, heartbroken Emmy offers to help. Changing sheets in the gîtes will help keep her mind off her misery.

Thrust into the heart of the local community, Emmy suddenly finds herself surrounded by new friends. And with sizzling hot gardener Ryan and the infuriating (if gorgeous) accountant Alain providing welcome distractions, Nathan is fast becoming a distant memory. 

Fresh coffee and croissants for breakfast, feeding the hens in the warm evening light; Emmy starts to feel quite at home. But it would be madness to walk away from her friends, family, and everything she's ever worked for, to take a chance on a place she fell for on holiday - wouldn't it?

I Heart Paris by Lindsey Kelk
After reading I Heart New York, I've been trying to hunt down the other books in the series. This book is the third in the series so I'll have to hold back from reading this one for now!

Synopsis
Angela is in the city of love - but romance is taking a nose-dive...

When Angela Clark's boyfriend Alex suggests a trip to Paris at the same time as hip fashion mag Belle asks her to write a piece, she jumps at the chance.

But even as she's falling for the Joie de vivre of Paris, someone's conspiring to sabotage her big break. And when she spots Alex having a tête-à-tête with his ex in a local bar, Angela's dream of Parisian passion all start crashing around her.

With London and her old life only a train journey away, Angela can't decide if she should stay and face the music or run away home...
I Heart Paris by Lindsey Kelk
Those are the three books that I picked up in the Charity Shops before lockdown. Have you read any of these books? What books have you recently purchased? Thanks for reading,
