the dilemma

Genre: Suspense/Mystery

Publication: January 23rd 2020 By HQ Publishing


My thoughts…

A five star read to (almost) finish the end of my reading year for 2019. What a brilliant book to round up an absolutely fantastic year of reading for me. The Dilemma focuses on family secrets and exactly what it says in the title – Dilemma’s. This was a powerful read, not least because I wanted to have hope throughout that it wasn’t going to turn out the way I was thinking it would. There were lots of twists and turns, lots of characters and secrets between them, but they were all woven together really well. B.A Paris has previously written Psychological Thrillers and this was more of a Domestic Thriller with elements of suspense and mystery.


About the book…

It’s Livia’s fortieth birthday and tonight she’s having a party, a party she’s been planning for a long time. The only person missing will be her daughter, Marnie.

But Livia has a secret, a secret she’s been keeping from Adam, her husband, until the party is over. Because how can she tell him that although she loves Marnie, she’s glad their daughter won’t be there to celebrate with her?

Adam is determined everything will be just right for Livia and the party is going to be perfect… until he learns something that will leave him facing an unbearable decision.
