My Review

I’m not entirely sure where to start or how to review this book without spoiling the book for anyone who’s yet to read it! You are best off going in blind and finding out the plot twists and turns for yourself, and i am fairly adamant that you won’t work out the ending on your own!!

Told from mainly three view points, Lisa, Ava and Marilyn and switching between present day, Before and After it is a quick paced storyline that keeps on throwing plot twists right until the very end. Just when you think you have it all figured out and you become slightly disheartened at the predictability, it pulls the rug out from underneath you and throws you off completely!

All three women have their own secrets they are keeping adding more layers to the plot line giving each of them their own story as well as their combined story, all of which are perfectly believable and told with compelling sensitivity even if some of them aren’t particularly likeable!

This is a really great quick read that you will struggle to put down until the very end, and if you love psychological thrillers you have to read this book!

Cross Her Heart will be published in kindle format on the 14th May 2018 and in Hardback on the 17th May in the UK and can be purchased from
