There is a body found in Tabatha’s shed – its her neighbour. She must be guilty right? She never really fitted into the village, everyone has an opinion on the funny dressed girl, she must have done it.
Tabatha is in prison awaiting trial for Murder on a day that she is struggling to remember clearly. She has everything to lose and no one to help her. This is a fight for her life….
The story is very interesting as it follows Tabatha from prison to the court room. I found it to be a great read, it kept my interest and I will be looking for more by this author.
The narration was excellent. A great tone of voice and read at a good pace.
We begin with James, boarding the night train at London heading for Edinburgh. He text messages all the contacts in his phone (friends, family and even people he barely knows) to tell them that he intends to end his life in the morning…
This obviously sends a lot of people in to panic, and we follow some them on the journey of finding James before it’s too late… We learn a bit about their time with him and how they became contacts in his phone and a part of his life.
Time is running out and his phone is switched off…
I am not normally a fan of the author narrating the story – due to their lack of acting skills and experience. Mark did a good job and read at a good pace. There perhaps could have been a bit more drama in his voice when people were concerned and panicking to reflect their emotions.
So I’ve not posted in a while… I’ve been lucky enough to have been reading some ARCs that I’m not allowed to write about until nearer their release date, so I thought i’d mention an absolutely brilliant book that I recommend to ANYONE!
The One by John Marrs
If you could take a simple DNA test that matched you with your one true love would you take it? That’s what the characters in this book can do and if their match has registered too, meet them and fall in unconditional lover forever.. Sounds perfect hey? Why wouldn’t you!
The result are in, the matches made but not all of them are matches made in heaven……
This is a great book full of excellent characters you wont want this read to end and you’ll be recommending to everyone you know!
Absolutely 5* from me……
So today is day one of both this blog and of my book reviewing.
Today I reviewed Mark Edwards “The Lucky Ones” which I was lucky enough to have received and advanced copy of. Being dyslexic and having ADHD, writing is NOT my forte! However I LOVE to read, I get through about 4 books a week and its expensive, hence signing up to be a reviewer, I get a free book, they get a review – perfect
A brilliant and complex story, which kept me guessing all the way through.
I was a “lucky One” and would like to thank Netgalley for the opportunity to read this book.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it started off quickly -straight into the story, keeping me turning the pages and trying to guess the outcome right from the start.
The characters are likable which always helps me when reading a story; I find you need to care enough about them to hold interest in what is going to happen.
There is enough Crime procedural and thriller mixed together to make a great story from different perspectives.
It is easy to read but yet a complex and clever story, certainly grabbing my interest early on and holding it until the end.
