This review is from: Wink Murder (Paperback)
I bought this book on the strength of good reviews. However, I cannot agree. Right from the outset this plot suspends belief. A woman finds her husband in the middle of the night drunk and covered in blood. He also appears to be confessing to having killed someone or something. What a trooper this woman is, as stopping only to visit the loo and make sure he is not dead, she decides to return to bed! I can't imagine many women reacting in this way but I'm afraid this sets the tone for the whole book. Our heroine changes her mind back and forth during every chapter on whether she can trust the father of her children but strangely it doesn't seem to occur to her to pin him down and ask him what is going on. However, she does carry on going to work and taking the kids to school so she's probably busy!

Just a tip for next time, look at the number of reviews the positive reviewers have written. If they have only written one review then they may be "shills" - there to promote the book rather than an honest review. If the negative reviewers have written lots of reviews then it would tend to make me think that their opinion is a more reliable one.

I do apologise but I don't know what a "shill is". This was an honest opinion of this book as far as I was concerned.
