Dead Lovely – Helen Fitzgerald ★★★★★

Blurb; Krissie and Sarah had been best friends since they were children. But cracks start to appear when Sarah and her husband Kyle who have been trying unsuccessfully to have a baby and Krissie accidentally becomes pregnant following a drug-fuelled dalliance in a Tenerife toilet cubicle. Then one night friendship turns to betrayal, and to murder.

My Review; This book is amazing. It’s been a long time since I finished a book in hours and this is one I finished in 6 hours. I couldn’t put it down. It’s twisted. Dark. Fast paced. Got the heart pacing. Holding my breathe throughout. Parts made me absolutely angry and sick! I loved how gripped I was by the book but hated the characters, all of them! Mixed feelings. Wound me up. But I loved it! Not read a book that made me feel like that for a long time…

Krissies character where do I start? She is a horrible mother and person. Raa. She should know better especially with the job she has. Parts had me raging at what she did. As a mother myself I know how hard it is and all about post-natal depression but my god she just didn’t care did she? That poor child. She really needed a wake up call and I think she got that towards the end.. I didn’t agree with anything she did throughout the book. Then…

Sarahs character. Hmm. Another psycho. Not much of a best friend really is she? Jealousy is a horrible thing. She got what was coming to her in the end. Parts made me feel sick. Throughout the story I just kept thinking about that poor child.

It has to be five stars from me. I mean it’s brilliant. Devoured it. Enjoyed it. Highly recommend. Amazing. Brilliantly written. Easily readable in one sitting. I’ve been telling everyone about this book!
