One Little Lie asks the question ‘does a mother ever really know their child?’ It follows the journey of two mothers who have lost their sons, one to murder, and one to prison. Alice is the mother of a killer. Her son is in prison for murder and she bears the guilt of someone who blames herself. Her support group for parents with troubled children can only help so much. She knows only the forgiveness of one woman will alleviate her guilt.
Star Rating: ★★★✰✰ A murder-mystery where the main character (and suspect) is a murder-mystery writer, you say? Count me in! Mystery writer Charlee Russo is having a fairly normal day, or so she thinks. A phone call to say her agent is dead rocks her world in more ways than she could have imagined.
Star rating: ★★★✰✰ Maud Drennan is a carer who has been sent to take care of Cathal Flood, a hoarder who has chased away all of his previous carers, sometimes with a hockey stick. Cathal is mean, angry, and desperate to keep his secrets just that, secret.
Star Rating: ★✰✰✰✰ Three people living in the same building but barely knowing of each other’s existence. Karen is a doctor and researcher, doing a study on the rising rates of autism. Tam has just lost his job as a policeman and now spends his days between takeaway containers and whiskey bottles. Nick is trying to live independently with his Asperger’s but has to deal with visits from his grandfather disrupting his routine.
Star Rating: ★★★★★ Aiden Bishop wakes up in someone else's body in the middle of the forest, with no idea where, or in fact who, he is. What he does know is that Anna is in trouble and he has to help her.
Star Rating: ★★★✰✰ A tragic event leads Abby Markstein to leave her life in Manhattan behind for the quiet and tranquility of Lewisburg, Indiana. She knows she’s probably just hiding from her problems, but for the time being she’s okay with it.
So I was scrolling through Instagram yesterday, as I do for hours most days, and I came across a very exciting post from writing.ie.
Star Rating: ★★✰✰✰ The murder of housewife Barbara Ryan, a pencil jammed into her neck, starts Detective Danny O'Neill on the search for a serial killer on the streets of Dublin.
To celebrate the new film coming out (I’m so excited about seeing it, I can’t frickin’ wait), I thought I’d do a post about Murder on the Orient Express.
This book was bought as a gift for me, and I’m going to start this review by saying that I was a little disappointed when I realised it was the seventh in a series. How could I read it when I hadn’t read any of the others, that’s just madness!
