Bone Deep - blog tour



What happens when you fall in love with the wrong person? The consequences threaten to be far-reaching and potentially deadly. Bone Deep is a contemporary novel of sibling rivalry, love, betrayal and murder. This is the story of two women: Mac, who is bent on keeping the secrets of the past from her only son, and the enigmatic Lucie, whose past is something of a closed book. Their story is underpinned by the creaking presence of an abandoned water mill, and haunted by the local legend of two long-dead sisters, themselves rivals in love, and ready to point an accusing finger from the pages of history.

Sandra Ireland was born in Yorkshire, lived for many years in Limerick, and is now based in Scotland. She began her writing career as a correspondent on a local newspaper but quickly realised that fiction is much more intriguing than fact. She returned to higher education her 40s, to study for undergraduate and postgraduate degrees at Dundee University. In 2016 she won Creative Scotland funding for a residency at Barry Mill, a National Trust for Scotland property. Her debut novel was Beneath the Skin (Polygon, 2016). She lives in Carnoustie and is available for interview.


This was such a different read than I have been reading lately. Reading this brought me back to the times before kindle when I spent so much time in book shops looking for that book that would stand out. I know from seeing this cover I’d have bought it.

I felt the author hooked me in slowly. The pace is slow throughout but can it be any other way with the two main characters. 

The story is told through two points of view. Firstly we have Mac, an elderly woman that will do anything to keep her secrets from her son. The other main characters is Lucie. She is a quiet girl with her own secrets.

As the blurb says ‘What happens when you fall in love with the wrong person?’.

I really enjoyed this story. The only negative in my opinion is when secrets started coming out I’d have liked more story then. Yeah I know I’m being a pain but I’m a reader, if I like the book then I want more of it.

I’m looking forward to reading more from this author.
