After the Crash

After the Crash by Michel Bussi is an unusual love story.

On the night of 22 December 1980, a plane crashes on the Franco-Swiss border and is engulfed in flames. 168 out of 169 passengers are killed instantly. The miraculous sole survivor is a three-month-old baby girl. Two families, one rich, the other poor, step forward to claim her, sparking an investigation that will last for almost two decades. Is she Lyse-Rose or Emilie?

_ how to detox a cracked relationship _

do not dwell on the past
do not divulge present sins
admit nothing in future

let your anger be a tortoise
let your passion be a hare
(and may the true winner win)

design date nights
and plan your exit

just in case

Thursday's Child by Nicci French

Thursday's Child (also "Thursday's Children") by Nicci French is the fourth novel in the psychotherapist Frieda Klein series, after Blue MondayTuesday's Gone and Waiting for Wednesday.

A psychological thriller is an unlikely genre for a love story, and yet I've come to enjoy Frieda's emotional life's trials and tribulations. Not a romance series by any means, but a love story nonetheless.
