  • A Marvellous Début

    Heatstroke is an incredibly tense and compelling tale from Hazel Barkworth about mothers and daughters, trust and betrayal, ageing and coming-of-age and desire and obsession. Extremely absorbing and exciting I loved the in-depth character portrayal especially of the self-absorbed, narcissistic Rachel. Hazel Barkworth's writing was notably good and I kept having to remind myself that I was reading a début novel! Intoxicating and evocative, the torrid, sultry atmosphere of the heatwave reflected Rachel’s frenetic and turbulent emotional state as the tension was stretched to the eventual limits. I'm really looking forward to reading more from Hazel Barkworth. I read Heatstroke in staves with other Pigeonholers as part of a group. A special thank you to Hazel Barkworth and The Pigeonhole for a complimentary copy of this novel at my request. This review is my unbiased opinion.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Unpleasant 'heroine'

    Not clear to me that the author realised quite how sick & creepy the mother was stalking her daughter wanting to keep fantasising about how her perverted lover is behaving with his 15 year old victim anxious only to save her own reputation atthe cost of her daughter & her daughter's friend I wanted her to get caught by the police for concealing evidence but the end suggested they would be reconsiled
