Coming May 2018! Thanks to Netgalley & HarperFiction for an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review! Cross her heart is written by Sarah Pinborough, author of Sunday Times bestselling book ‘Behind her eyes.’ I read C.L Taylor’s review of this book shortly before writing mine and was I glad I did… just like C.L Taylor experienced, this book majorly messed with my head and I had the oddest strangest dreams! I’ve never written anything by Pinborough before, although her first book is now firmly on my ‘To read’ list! I wasn’t disappointed.
She’s an eclectic mix of some of Psychological Suspense’s finest – Sophie Hannah, B.A Paris, C.L Taylor, Claire Douglas and Emma Donohue and brings out some of the finest from each of their writing styles. At the same time though, there’s something very unique about her. I couldn’t put this book down until I knew exactly what was going on and at the end I was just left reeling.
Cross her heart is about a woman’s strength and struggle to begin a new life and put her past behind her – but as we all know in every great psychological thriller, this is rarely possible! Lisa is the main protagonist and embraces single motherhood raising her daughter Ava. Despite her best efforts though, she cannot protect Ava against everything and her past soon comes back to majorly mess with her head and drive her to desperate measures. Someone is living a lie – but whether it’s Lisa, Ava or someone else…or a combination of all three… you’ll just have to find out!
