Fourth blog tour of the day, and second one for RandomThingsTours, is my review of A.B.Whelan’s ‘As Sick As Our Secrets’. Many thanks once again to Anne for the blog tour invite and ARC. Here is my review:
What would you do if you found out your husband was a serial killer?
Olivia Campbell has the life most women want. A respected husband, beautiful home, and the freedom that only financial security can provide.
But not all is as it appears…
Olivia has secrets, and after discovering a hidden journal in her husband’s study, she realizes that she’s not the only one.
As her picture perfect world starts to fall apart around her, Olivia wonders just how deep the secrets run as she finds herself immersed in the investigation of a young missing girl.
Some coincidences are just too hard to ignore, but how far is she willing to go to discover the truth?
What does TWG think?
Oh bloomin’ eck – I cannot fault this book for its intensity, suspense, and mind-blowing level of grit, but sheeeeeesh it really is like the title suggests; sick!! Of course I don’t mean that rudely, I mean that in the ‘sick and twisted’ sense, because it really is!!
‘As Sick As Our Secrets’ isn’t the type of thriller which describes the characters actions and leaves a little bit of mystery for the readers to decipher in their own mind. Instead it’s the type of thriller which describes actions in such intense and chilling detail, explaining the twisted event in such a manner which creates a picture in the reader’s mind which includes feelings of nausea and thoughts such as; ‘WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT?!?’. To be brutally honest, my mind couldn’t decipher the storyline any other way than what the author wrote! Again, no, I’m not saying that as though it’s a bad thing, it was just difficult for me to digest at times because I couldn’t get over just how ‘what the f…..’ the characters in this book could be.
A.B.Whelan is a very clever and dynamic author who certainly knows how to grab her readers by their anatomy! Even if I wanted to put this book down, I don’t think I would have been able to, purely down to my level of intrigue. This book may be very twisted and a bit nauseating, but it works in a way I never, ever imagined myself saying.
A magnetic, stomach churning, twisted read which took over my mind, body and soul. I was certainly put under A.B.Whelan’s spell…will you be?
