..Can destroy your life
'Wow, wow, wow, this book had me guessing all the way to the end!' ☆☆☆☆☆ Reader Review
When new mother, Laura Caldwell, opens the card dropped through her letterbox, she expected to see a heartfelt note, congratulating her on the birth of baby Shay.
Instead, she sees a message that makes her blood run cold. 'Your husband is a murderer.' It couldn’t be true, could it? Not Conor, her adoring husband. He couldn’t be behind the brutal killing of local barmaid, Vicky. Not him.
But while Laura fights to discover the truth about her husband, she’s also holding dark secrets of her own; secrets she’s spent years trying to hide. Could the card be a desperate attempt at revenge – or could her husband really be a murderer? There’s a tangled web between this perfect couple – and the truth might just destroy them...
Five Little Words is a well written story that I really enjoyed. Laura is happily married to her husband Conor and has just given birth to her son.
What would you do if you got a card in the post saying your husband is a murderer? That’s what Laura needs to decide. Based in a small village there’s an unsolved murder- is Laura’s husband the murderer?
This is a well written story. I’ll definitely be reading more from this author in the future.
