Today on my blog as part of the paperback publication celebrations, I am sharing my review for Fifty Fifty by Steve Cavanagh

Happy Friday everyone, I hope your all looking forward to a nice relaxing weekend! This afternoon I am sharing my review for Fifty Fifty courtesy of Orion Publishing.

My Review

What a read, I was so excited to see this was available to request on Netgalley as I loved reading Thirteen and couldn’t wait to get stuck in. I am loving the Eddie Flynn series and I read this one over a couple of nights as I just couldn’t put it down.

Another brilliant storyline, following Eddie Flynn in this latest court room drama. I read with baited breathe anticipating the upcoming twists that make these stories such compelling reading. I loved the pace and found I was wide awake late into the night as I wanted to know what happened next!

Throughout this book I couldn’t tell whether Sofia or Alexandra killed their Dad, I loved discussing the story trying to workout which of the sisters were actually guilty.

Steve Cavanagh is quickly becoming a goto author as his books just capture you and make you want to keep reading, I eagerly await his next release and the chance to spend more time with Eddie Flynn.

Book Blurb

Two sisters on trial for murder. They accuse each other.
Who do YOU believe?

‘911 what’s your emergency?’

‘My dad’s dead. My sister Sofia killed him. She’s still in the house. Please send help.’

‘My dad’s dead. My sister Alexandra killed him. She’s still in the house. Please send help.’

One of them is a liar and a killer.

But which one?

I am a total bookworm who loves nothing more than to lose herself in a book. My pile of books to read is teetering higher and higher as there are not enough hours in the day compared to how many old and new amazing books there are out there to read. I love to read in my spare time and books are a massive part of our household. I feel really lucky that Daisy also loves losing herself in the amazing worlds the authors are creating for us and neither of us ever go very far without having a book to hand as you never know when an opportunity to read may present itself.
