    Clever & A Little Different

    If your favoured reading material is a novel with a good sprinkling of domestic noir, emotional abuse, evil, marriage toxicity, suspense, secrets, drama, and lies then feel at liberty to read Naomi Joy's latest offering - The Truth. Psychological crime thrillers do not come any more terrifying than The Truth which was an intense and nerve-twisting exploration of a toxic marriage. It shocked, scared and beguiled me as nothing was quite what it seemed. The entire story was told to as a series of blog posts and each word was convincing, conveying the right emotions. Although initially I was not on board with this style of writing, I soon became used to it and it worked excellently in retaining my interest in the story. I was never bored but instead, was lured ever deeper into this compelling tale. Random autopsy reports were presented intermittently between the opening chapters, helping to set the stage for a first-rate, compelling mystery. Although this was not a story full of characters - there’s Emelia and Anthony with their repellent love story - the character development and the dynamics between the couple were authentic and believable. Nothing was what it seemed, and the writing really flowed in this wonderfully crafted, chilling tale. Most of the characters were extremely unpersonable, but this only added more dimension to the story. Original, complex and packed full of twists, the ending was astonishing and surprising, leaving me with more questions. Based on a collection of real events, The Truth was claustrophobic and clever and something a little different. Overall, I'd say that this novel is a little gem and a book that I'm so pleased to have read. Naomi Joy may well become one of my favourite authors in this genre. I received a complimentary digital copy of this novel, at my own request, from Aria via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion. Thank you also to Pigeonhole and Naomi Joy for giving me the opportunity to read this book!

    The must read psychological thriller of 2019

    If there is only one book that you should read this year, The Truth is definitely it! It is twisted, thrilling, compelling, completely addictive and mind blowing! I could not turn the pages on my kindle fast enough and was completely captivated right from the start. It was an all nighter for me as I had to know how this was going to end and what an ending it is! I still have it playing around in my head. A piece of advice though, make sure your kindle is fully charged before reading this. I made the mistake of not checking and during a crucial part it died! I lost valuable seconds having to plug it in and wait till I could read from it again. I broke out in a sweat and had heart palpitations. It was really a terrible time for me….😜 Based on real events, Naomi has put together a dark and completely twisted tale where it is almost impossible to talk about the plot without divulging crucial storylines. The blurb gives enough details which completely sucked me in. I haven’t read anything like this before and at the same time ask myself what the hell have I just read! I love it when this happens, knowing I have read something that is so breathtakingly creative which will stay with me. In a creative twist of using writing within writing, the story is told through blog posts. Once again I find myself struggling to find the words to describe this book’s style and story as it is such a tightly woven plot I’m worried that by pulling on a thread, will make it unravel and give it all away. But you are going to want to read this one yourself. Naomi expertly draws you into the story and builds tension throughout like no other. I am so impressed with this book and Naomi. She has definitely exceeded all expectations for her second novel. She smashes this one right out of the park and I am excited to see with what she comes up with next. I have managed to incorporate The Truth into nearly every conversation I have with people since reading it, recommending it to all who will listen and I will keep shouting it from the rooftops that it is the must read psychological thriller of 2019. The Truth has deservedly been added to my top 5 books of the year! Thank-you to NetGalley, Aria Fiction and Naomi Joy for allowing me to read an advanced copy of the Truth which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.

    Smoke & Mirrors!

    This is definitely a book of two halves, with both relating to the same story even though it doesn't feel like it at the time. it's really hard to summarise the plot of this one; there are bits which still puzzle me after completing the novel. I don't think I've read any other novel which is as ambiguous as this one; there's a strong feeling that what I spent the day perusing was really all smoke and mirrors and I'm still left with the notion that I've missed something. It is certainly a gripping read; it had me glued from the beginning, desperate to see where it was heading. I thought I knew where that was but then the second half of the story kicked in and I was totally and utterly confused. It's a very clever scenario - not what I expected, and I'm not entirely sure that the ending worked - for me, anyway. I have an aversion to books written under the fiction banner to bring awareness of an issue and I have a suspicion that this is one such novel, however loosely. I understand that I'm probably out of step with my opinions but hey, we can't all like the same things! For me, this is a three star read.
