About the Book:
Five little words can destroy your life...When new mother, Laura Caldwell, opens the card dropped through her letterbox, she expected to see a heartfelt note, congratulating her on the birth of baby Shay. Instead, she sees a message that makes her blood run cold. 'Your husband is a murderer.' 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.

My Review:
This was an okay read for me. It is a short book and the plot kept me wanting to know what was going on and what would happen next. Very emotional, frustrating characters and who is responsible? I did find it a little slow going and not in a good, slow burn sort of way. I liked the writing though and the first person point of view.

It was an easy read BUT it was repetitive and the characters were a little flat as there was little to no development. Being a new mother is hard....but I got real tired of Laura and her what is real fast. The ending felt rushed and left me wanting more...and this kind of story has been done to death, not a very unique plot at all and the ending was kind of disappointing.

Thank you NetGalley, Jackie Walsh and Hera Books for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
