Customer Review

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 3 August 2021
Oooooh what a juicy, juicy book. It’s so dark and twisted and bloody, but funny and entertaining and joyful and, bizarrely, uplifting,

Whilst I don’t necessarily approve of mass familicide, the main character of Grace Bernard is such an empowering woman and I feel like I absolutely love her - which seems completely wrong.

Bella has a way of crossing between the past and present, and even characters, smoothly and I never once got confused as to where in her story we were. The amount of description used is just right; it gives you enough to cling to when reading the story, but it doesn’t overwhelm it and become one of these “why use one word when you can use five” kind of books.

And that twist at the end!!! I’m not saying anything, but boy did I not see it coming, any of it, which to me is the sign of a good thriller/murder mystery writer.

This is Bella’s debut fiction book and I truly hope it’s the start of a long line of others. It’s so unusual to anything I’ve read before and I can really see Bella being a real tour de force for the future.

Also, it’s just screaming out for a TV adaptation starring Jodie Comer.
