It has been a while since I have been a part of a blog tour but when I was informed of this book, I couldn’t refuse.
When Ann-Marie Ross murders her abusive husband and feeds him to the pigs, she thinks she’s got away with murder and secured the future of her Scottish cider farm. But she soon finds herself having to keep more than one deadly secret to protect those closest to her.
As four women embrace their new-found independence, Ann-Marie is tormented by the threat of discovery.
A darkly comic tale of murder, friendship and Love.
I have to give a warning here because I was gripped to the edge of my seat in the first chapter. I couldn’t believe what was unfolding, it does say murder in the bio but it still had my jaw to the floor.
Even though I was gifted this book to read I wanted to see how Lorraine was going to bring comedy into such serious situations.
As someone who has experienced domestic abuse, I can feel all of the bitter emotions but I think that’s because I read between the lines and let my own thoughts become a part of it. If I was looking at this as a strong element I would have liked to have had more context.
Taking the seriousness of the subject aside readers will be drawn into such a direct but fun plot. I enjoyed the fast-paced energy and especially the added cider. I enjoyed changing what I was reading for this book and I completed it in just two sittings.
Lorraine Turnbull was born in Glasgow where she lived until 2005 when she and her family moved to Cornwall to run a smallholding. She relocated to France in 2017 where she continues to make cider, writes books and learns French.
