The last thing she told me by Linda Green #bookreview

BOOK BLURB –

Even the deepest buried secrets can find their way to the surface…

Moments before she dies, Nicola’s grandmother Betty whispers to her that there are babies at the bottom of the garden.

Nicola’s mother claims she was talking nonsense. However, when Nicola’s daughter finds a bone while playing in Betty’s garden, it’s clear that something sinister has taken place.

But will unearthing painful family secrets end up tearing Nicola’s family apart?

———-

I almost think the book blurb for The last thing she told me by Linda Green does the book a slight disservice.

I felt like I didn’t get the book I was expecting to read and instead I got this emotionally heavy story that dealt with some very difficult themes of loss, abuse and death.

Maybe it was my own biased reading of the blurb the first time around, but I thought I was picking up more of a psychological domestic thriller type novel with a big twist ending and this is a sad, emotional roller-coaster of a book.

Although it was a tough read for me, the story, and the characters kept me reading to the very end and when the last page came I was sad to leave them behind.

 It was a good book, it was just a very heavy read.

I came out of it feeling the need to go for a walk in the sunshine.

This is not my first Linda Green novel. She has become one of my go to authors for a good story, and I’ve read most of her recent books as well as catching up on her back catalogue. The very first book of hers I read years ago was The Mummyfesto and I completely recommend it, especially if you fancy a story about what would happen if a group of Mums decided to take a shot at running the country.

I purchased The last thing she told me by Linda Green initially, but I also received it for review in the run-up to the paperback release on March 7th 2019.

          1. The LIsa Jewell one is heartbreaking – I thought.
            So many simlar titles – I have two tours this week with simialr ones and almost published the wrong title for the review. I have serious reading fatigue at the minute
