Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I thought this was a brilliant book. I read it way too quickly because it is it is one of those books that you can easily get lost in, just like Julie Corbin's other books: Tell Me No Secrets, Do Me No Harm, and Where the Truth Lies. And now I want to go back and read it all over again to appreciate it more. The main character doesn't give up when she's told that how her brother dies. She doesn't believe it and goes on her own quest to find out the truth. A character with gumption and resilience, she puts herself in danger and confronts all kinds of criminals. I particularly liked the portrayal of criminal granny figure Min Fraser and her squat boudoir. As the autumn draws in, light the fire, snuggle under a blanket and read this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars A doctor's fatal mistake comes back to haunt her, 11 Jun. 2012
This review is from: Do Me No Harm (Kindle Edition)
We trust our lives with the people in white coats. What would happen if one of them slipped away by a careless error brought about through tiredness and negligence? Would we seek revenge, retribution? This is explored in Julie Corbin's third novel, Do Me No Harm - as tightly written, carefully plotted and compelling as her first two. She challenges what it means to keep a family together, and how quickly trust in others and ourselves can fall away.

Dr Olivia's guilt-driven sympathy for the perpetrator is finally tested to the limit and the ending, while satisfying, is ripe for a sequel. Bring it on!

5.0 out of 5 stars How far would you go to protect your family?, 6 Sept. 2010
This review is from: Where the Truth Lies (Hardcover)
Claire is a woman who is plunged into despair as her family's safety is threatened. She is feisty, driven, and capable, and will stop at nothing to get a grip on a situation that will soon tear her family apart. One by one she questions her trust of the closest people in her life, until, with only herself to rely on, she finds the strength she needs.

This book is tight, well-crafted, and takes the author's edge-of-the-seat storytelling skills established in Tell Me No Secrets to a whole new level. Brilliant!

5.0 out of 5 stars gripping, tense, all-consuming, fast-paced story, 22 April 2009
This review is from: Tell Me No Secrets (Hardcover)
Grace is totally consumed by guilt. She lives with it her whole adult life, she feels like she's made amends in the only way she knew how, until a blast from the past threatens to rip her life apart. She is tortured and tormented and the author gets inside the character's head so completely that we feel every ounce of Grace's guilt and anxiety. There is tension on every page and the story of what really happened is gradually revealed in engaging flashbacks. Like the other reviewers, I couldn't put the book down and read it everywhere; the characters and story stayed with me long after I'd closed the covers.

I'd definitely recommend this book as one to get lost in, to take on a journey, or to curl up with on the sofa under a blanket!
