I’ve read two of Jenn Ashworth’s books, Fell and A Kind of Intimacy. Both have a dark edge but with this one, Ashworth along with Richard V Hirst, goes much further. The characters develop through a series of emails between Alice and Orla and I’m finding it hard to review without giving any spoilers. However for a short read it had me literally pinned to my seat and how it ended was not what I expected. I’m not really sure what I was expecting but it’s not often that a book surprises me and makes me shout out ‘No!’. I couldn’t let this one go without commenting on it and I really can’t recommend it highly enough. A little late for Halloween perhaps but if you like your fiction dark I don’t think you will regret reading this one. I would love to know what others think of it so please drop me a line using the contact page if you feel the urge!
