I was delighted to have the chance to read and review Who did you tell by Lesley Kara – thank you, Anne!
After a child with a sickness bug, a heavy dose of the cold and all the other usual December busy stuff I am behind in my reading. As of today I am only half way into the book.
But, I am happy to tell you that it’s off to a great start.
From the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Rumour
It’s been 192 days, seven hours and fifteen minutes since her last drink. Now Astrid is trying to turn her life around.
Having reluctantly moved back in with her mother, in a quiet seaside town away from the temptations and painful memories of her life before, Astrid is focusing on her recovery. She’s going to meetings. Confessing her misdeeds. Making amends to those she’s wronged.
But someone knows exactly what Astrid is running from. And they won’t stop until she learns that some mistakes can’t be corrected.
Some mistakes, you have to pay for…
Great blurb, right!?!?!
Every time I sit down for five minutes I try to squeeze in another chapter. I love short and snappy chapters. Love them! Especially, at this time of year when I don’t always have the time to sit down and read for a good chunk of the afternoon.
Right from chapter one I knew I was going to enjoy the book, even if I wasn’t sure I would like Astrid. She’s an unreliable protagonist and one of the most unreliable that I’ve read in a while. And her mum. And Josh. Lesley Kara has done a great job at fleshing out her characters – flaws and all, which makes for a compelling read.
The writing is also great. The pacing is good. And so far the story is interesting and I have no idea how it is all going to end, but I very much doubt that I will be disappointed.
Who did you tell by Lesley Kara is a very easy book to pick up and a very hard book to put down.
Have you read it?
Am I in for a shock ending? A twisty plot turn? Or will I have it all figured out by the time I get there?
I already have Lesley Kara’s first book, which I haven’t read yet but I will be making the time to pick it up very soon.
I received a copy of the book for review from the publisher, via the blog tour organiser – Thank you!
I’m off to read!
