Thank you very much to Tracy @ Compulsive Readers and Jessica Eames for providing a copy of the book to [K]
The review below is 100% honest and all of her own views.
Nicola is going to die. Just like her husband did.
Nicola thought she’d gotten away with it.
Since her husband died, life has been getting back on track. She has a new boyfriend, Phil. A new home, living next door to her brother-in-law, his wife and their children. She is closer than ever with her daughter, Sarah. She even likes her job at the local shop, though she’s had some time off recently with illness. The doctor says its menopause, that it’s nothing to worry about. As if he could know how she’s feeling.
Nicola is finally moving on with her life.
But then she receives the note. Someone knows what she did. They know the secret she doesn’t even think about when she is alone.
And they want revenge.
After the death of her husband, Nicola is finally moving on with her life. She has a new boyfriend, her relationship with her daughter is better than ever. Things are looking up. Till she starts receiving unsettling notes, someone knows what she did….
I found this to be a very cleverly written book. When I thought I had worked out who the suspect was, another tit bit of evidence was revealed which changed my opinion. The characters well written and whilst I didn’t warm to some of the characters (Phil for one seemed abit shifty to me) I found I sympathised with their situation.
Once I picked up this book I found I could not put it down. I kept saying ‘one more chapter’ and ‘just a little more’ to the point I actually kept felling asleep with my kindle still in my hands.
I do not want to give any of the story away but I really enjoyed the writing and did not guess the way it played out.
This is the debut novel from Jessica and I cannot wait to see what her next book will be.
