To Be Read Thursday is a weekly meme I created to help make me accountable for my tbr pile. Each week, I will feature one book from that ever-growing mountain that I plan to read in the coming week.
On my to read list this week:Little Face (Spilling CID, #1)

It's every mother's nightmare ...
The first time Alice Fancourt goes out after their daughter is born, she leaves the two-week-old infant with her husband, David. When she returns only two hours later, she swears the baby in the crib is not her child. Despite her distress, David is adamant that she is wrong.
The police are called to the scene. Detective Constable Simon Waterhouse is sympathetic, but he doubts Alice's story. His superior, Sergeant Charlie Zailer, thinks that Alice must be suffering from some sort of delusion brought on by postpartum depressions.
With an increasingly hostile and menacing David swearing she must either be mad or lying, how can Alice make the police believe her before it's too late?
Why it is on my tbr
I purchased Little Face after browsing in Barnes & Noble (always a dangerous thing). After being burned by book buying I have learned to look the book up on Goodreads and read reviews before I head to the checkout. It was described as “if you liked Tana French” (Yes!) and it was a police procedural (Yes Again!) So off to the checkout I went and added it to my ever-growing to be read pile.
