Dead excited that my Guest Reviewer, Claire Knight is hosting the fabulous Jack Jordan’s My Girl Blog Tour today on CrimeBookJunkie. I cannot wait to start reading this myself after hearing some really great things and seeing Claire’s review just makes me want to *bump* it up the TBR! Oh…and I bloody love the cover!!
Paige Dawson: the mother of a murdered child and wife to a dead man.
She has nothing left to live for… until she finds her husband’s handgun hidden in their house.
Why did Ryan need a gun? What did he know about their daughter’s death?
Desperate for the truth, Paige begins to unearth her husband’s secrets.
But she has no idea who she is up against, or that her life isn’t hers to gamble – she belongs to me.
Claire’s Rating: 5/5
When I finished My Girl, I was in a state of shock. I’ve not read anything like it before….this review is the hardest I’ve had to write as I really don’t want to spoil the story.
It’s a book of three parts…the first half of the book is Paige’s story, her road to self destruction following her husband’s suicide. Drink and prescription drugs are a nasty combination but mixed up with grief, it’s a recipe for disaster.
The middle is someone else’s story but I won’t say too much about that…#nospoiler.
In the final part we return to Paige’s story but it’s a roller coaster of shocking discoveries.
It is definitely one to read if you like psychological thrillers. You are totally blindsided with Paige’s journey to self destruction to notice other things going on. Even Joanne Robertson over on My Chestnut Reading Tree #queenofguessingtwists was totally hoodwinked by Jack Jordan’s writing so that is saying something….as I read the second half of the book, I kept shaking my head and my jaw would drop at the revelations.
Massive thanks to Jack Jordan and CrimeBookJunkie for my e-copy of My Girl.
