Review: Am I Guilty? by Jackie Kabler #bookreview #bookblog @harpercollinsUK @jackiekabler

Blurb

Everyone thinks I did it…maybe I did.

Gripping, exciting and emotional, this book will grab you from the first page and refuse to let you go until the final chapter!

I never thought it would happen to me…
 
One moment I had it all – a gorgeous husband, a beautiful home, a fulfilling career and two adorable children. The next, everything came crashing down around me.
 
They said it was my fault. They said I’m the worst mother in the world. And even though I can’t remember what happened that day, they wouldn’t lie to me. These are my friends, my family, people I trust.
 
But then why do I have this creeping sensation that something is wrong? Why do I feel like people are keeping secrets? Am I really as guilty as they say? And if I’m not, what will happen when the truth comes out…?

My Thoughts

A bit late with this review. I’m being snowed under with assignments at the moment.

Now, I really loved the premise with this book. I haven’t read one like it, so I was excited. However, I just couldn’t get into this one. I can’t entirely pinpoint why that is. The writing was excellent, it flowed well, the characters were developed well, and I actually liked the twist. Didn’t see it coming, and I liked that it felt a little… wicked. I won’t say anything else because I don’t want to give it away. However, at times it felt like words were put down and didn’t really go anywhere. It was a little slow. I didn’t gel with the characters, in fact I found them a little annoying at times. Almost as if the author tried to do too much, without a lot of scene change.  I enjoyed it, don’t get me wrong. But it just didn’t strike to give it anymore than three stars. For that to have happened, I really need to mesh with the characters; I need to get lost in the story with them.  It would have also needed to elicit some physical responses, so gasps, tears, laughter etc. but it didn’t.

I definitely look forward to reading the next by this author, because let’s face it, we don’t always gel with every character we read but there’s always the chance next time. I definitely don’t want to miss out of that chance!

Thank you Harper Collins UK for my ebook copy in return for an honest review. I really appreciate it.

I rated Am I Guilty?: 3/5 stars.

Happy reading

Nat
