  • A Terrific Treat

    I Made a Mistake is the new novel by best-seller author Jane Corry and I can certainly say that no mistakes were made by me in choosing to read this book! This is a slow-burn drama that is carefully layered using two story threads, those of Poppy and Betty, and a court-room scene as Jane Corry builds a superb tale full of suspense and mystery. The intriguing tale grabs you from page one with an opening scene set in Waterloo Station that is exciting and compelling. The reader is privy to the the identity of the person being questioned in court, but not the murdered victim's and the defendant's identity. From that point onward you are taken on a ride that gives the characters every motive as to why they could be the murderer. Aspiring actress Poppy Page's life hadn't worked out as she hoped so she established an agency providing extras for film and TV roles. Married to dentist Stuart with daughters Melissa and Daisy, the family shares a home with Poppy's mother-in-law, Betty. Poppy and Betty are close, and one day Poppy, attending a Christmas party, encounters an ex-partner, Matthew Gordon, a man she loved many years before her husband. This encounter leads to Poppy making the first of many mistakes. For her part, Betty tells her story through letters to Poppy and it details her adult life, from meeting her selfish husband Jock who has since passed away. Theirs was a marriage that Betty now considers a mistake as she opens up to Poppy. I Made a Mistake is stylishly written with comfortable pacing and there are plenty of twists and turns. The characters are very well portrayed, most are likeable, but all are pivotal to the novel, and I gleaned a clear understanding of them. Jane Corry redirects the impetus of the story really brilliantly from building excitement and provocation to spiralling descent into panic and dread. Very highly recommended and definitely a five-star, extremely clever tale. I received a complimentary copy of this novel at my request from Penguin Books (UK) via NetGalley and this review is my unbiased opinion.

    Thanks for your feedback!
