A review of The Butcher’s Daughter by a Vine Voice reviewer

This is one of the most nerve wracking books I have read…the animal slaughter brings a horror of its own…but it gets worse…something awful is being done by the inhabitants of Little Downey…or is it all in Natalie’s damaged mind?

The Crying Boy book review

As soon as I read the blurb for this book I had to get it straight away. Good call! It did not let me down in the slightest. The plot in this book is just brilliant – so intriguing and one to hold your interest all the way through.

The Long Weekend book review

I started this book thinking the lighthouse was going to be spooky and the mother and her two grown-up daughters were going to have lots of arguments. I was not prepared for what actually happened within the pages of this book.

The Long Weekend book review

This gets five big shiny stars from me! I won’t reiterate what it’s all about but suffice to say this is a haunting book but in a very human sense. The main character, Hazel, estranged mother of two daughters, Yvonne and Venetia, is very complex to say the least.
