...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.

What a double twist in the final section! So refreshing and satisfying. Well done.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for your correct use of the first person pronoun, especially the objective case! It is so often used incorrectly in contemporary fiction and journalism. Well written and edited.

A gripping page turner

When I was first given the opportunity to read Five Little Words, I was unable to commit to it, which really bummed me out. Everything about this book appealed to me, so I was resigned to the fact that I would have to wait and read it at some point after my other reading commitments.

But as fate would have it, the stars ended up aligning and here I am now writing this review on its publication day! Five Little Words is only the second book I have read from Jackie Walsh and she has delivered another thrilling read. This is an addictive one, so be prepared to be reading this well into the night!

Jackie Walsh has produced a gripping page turner that kept me in the dark, never giving me any hint as to how the story was going to unfold. She does a great job of teasing the reader, toying with you along the way as she builds up the tension and suspense. The characters also have you second guessing each of them.

All up Five Little words is a great read that keeps you entertained as you are taken along for the ride in solving the mystery. With its short and snappy chapters, which is a huge plus for me, it makes for a hard time in tearing yourself away, when each leaves you wanting more. It was a pleasure to read and review Five Little Words which I recommend.
