Friday 24th April 2020 and day 32 of the Coronavirus lockdown.
The voting is finished and we have a winner for this month’s virtual crime book club read. And that is;
Blood Orange by Harriet Tyce
Alison has it all. A doting husband, adorable daughter, and a career on the rise – she’s just been given her first murder case to defend. But all is never as it seems…
Just one more night. Then I’ll end it.
Alison drinks too much. She’s neglecting her family. And she’s having an affair with a colleague whose taste for pushing boundaries may be more than she can handle.
I did it. I killed him. I should be locked up.
Alison’s client doesn’t deny that she stabbed her husband – she wants to plead guilty. And yet something about her story is deeply amiss. Saving this woman may be the first step to Alison saving herself.
The meeting will be Monday 18th May at 8pm BST(UK). I will send the Zoom room details out the day before via email. If you have not yet signed up to the mailing list then you can sign up HERE.
The kindle edition of this book is currently set at 0.99 so grab it quick! Also if you’re a library user, don’t forget to see if your online library stocks it.
The next book club book will be a thriller. I’ll take suggestions for the vote during the next meeting. I have a couple of books already lined up but will happily take suggestions for others.
I look forward to chatting another crime read with you.
