My Review

This was one of my fastest reads, with short chapters and straightforward plot line, author Jackie Walsh managed to capture my interest and keep it shooting onwards.

The book piqued my curiosity when a new mother Laura received a note of warning about her husband among the congratulations cards. That started her spiral to action where every scene was imbibed with the color of her suspicion. Not that she didn’t have skeletons in her closet. The author managed to tease me well with a line inserted in the prose wherein I too had doubts about the main character.

The chapters seemed to move like the flash of light, the characters were varied. I began to see them through Laura’s eyes, and I was sure they were all involved in something nefarious. I liked how I was thrown into the whole rigmarole of Laura’s suspicions. Then came my infamous niggles. More character development, sharper prose, a depth to the story with twists would have made my pulse skyrocket.

Overall, this was an interesting story where the book gave me a gossipy feel of a small town mystery. The final twist made it a fun read.

Book Blurb

When new mother, Laura Caldwell, opens the card dropped through her letterbox, she expected to see a heartfelt message, congratulating her on the birth of baby Shay.

Instead, she sees a message that makes her blood run cold. It couldn’t be true, could it? Not Conor, her adoring husband. He couldn’t be behind the brutal killing of local barmaid, Vicky. Not him.

But while Laura fights to discover the truth about her husband, she’s also holding dark secrets of her own; secrets she’s spent years trying to hide. Could the card be a desperate attempt at revenge – or could her husband really be a murderer? There’s a tangled web between this perfect couple – and the truth might just destroy them…

I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

  1. Nice review Shalini. Sometimes a quick read (think James Patterson) doesn’t give the character development others do, but when I am reading, I don’t notice. When I do my review and think about it, that’s when I realize it. This sounds like a good story.
