Today I am taking part in the blog tour for I Have Something To Tell You. My review is written with thanks to Anne Cater for inviting me on the tour and to Pigeonhole for the opportunity to read and review the book.
High-flying lawyer Jessica Wells has it all. A successful career, loving husband Tom and a family she adores. But one case – and one client – will put all that at risk.
Edward Blake. An ordinary life turned upside down – or a man who quietly watched television while his wife was murdered upstairs? With more questions than answers and a case too knotted to unravel, Jessica suspects he’s protecting someone.
Then she comes home one day and her husband utters the words no one ever wants to hear. Sit down … I have something to tell you
Now Jessica must fight not only for the man she defends, but for the man she thought she trusted with her life – her husband.
There are two central plots in I Have Something To Tell You that run alongside each other: the death of Vanessa Blake and the search for her murderer and the relationship between Jay and her husband, Tom. It’s probably not a surprise to regular Portable Magic readers that I enjoyed the crime element of the novel slightly more, but there was a lot of tension across both stories that kept me reading until the end.
I am particularly interested in the criminal justice system and enjoyed learning more about how an investigation is conducted from the perspective of a lawyer. I felt this gave the novel a unique slant which was especially engaging.
Each character in I Have Something To Tell You is well observed, particularly in terms of their relationships, and I found it easy to become involved in their lives. There were some occasions where I questioned their actions and wanted to throw my phone across the floor, but these decisions did create some interesting questions for me and kept me well entertained.
I Have Something To Tell You is available from Amazon.
