    Della and Zoey !! Della is convinced that her student Zoey , well there is just something off about her, something does not add up. Della should know her brother Brian was the same and no one believed Della then either. Zoey is new to the school and suddenly things start going wrong. The pages turn quickly. You just want someone to believe or at least listen to Della , maybe she has it all wrong. Great entertaining read! Thanks to Net Galley and Bookouture for the opportunity to read and review Good Girl. Love the cover !!

  • Student Terror?

    The book has a slow start but a wonderful premise and storyline. As a teacher, I sometimes think of my students as being terrors, but this takes it to a new level. I, typically, like for books to start with action, and it opens with a strong start, then tapers off a little. Despite the slow start, it's a pretty quick read, and I think it does a great job of weaving the past and present.

  • A great read

    ”My brother was thirteen the first time he tried to kill me” What a way to introduce a book! This first sentence of the blurb had me hooked right from the get go and I could not wait to get stuck into it. Chilling, thrilling and downright terrifying, What I Know will have you completely enthralled from beginning to end. Miranda has crafted a dark tale that had me completely on edge throughout its entirety. There is so much tension and suspense that is built up along the way, that there was no way I was able to relax while reading it. Miranda had me on the edge of my seat at all times, while furiously flicking the pages on my kindle to see how it was all going to unfold. The characters are all well rounded and have been written well. I was able to relate to Della and could feel the intensity of her obsession in trying to expose Zoey, as well as her frustrations when no one would really listen to her concerns. She really was quite an interesting character and was very believable. I enjoyed the structure of the book and how it alternated between the past and present, giving the reader insight into how it felt for Della growing up with her psychopath brother Brian, for it to then switch back to the present as old wounds are brought back to the surface for Della with the arrival of Zoey. There is one thing though that I would have liked to have seen and that would have been dedicated chapters for Brian and Zoey to really get into their minds, but the way it has been set up still works all the same. All up, What I Know is a fast paced, thrilling enjoyable read that will have you up until all hours. Miranda has done a great job with the book and I look forward to reading what she comes up with next. Thank you to NetGalley, Bookouture and Miranda Smith for allowing me to read an advanced copy of Lies To Tell which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.

  • A Suspenseful Shocker!

    What I Know, formerly titled 'Good Girl', is a ominous and sinister mix of domestic noir and psychological suspense and is my second sortie into Miranda Smith's writing. English teacher Della is concerned that Zoey, a new student in one of her classes, is showing psychopathic traits, although none of the other teaching staff appear to share her unease. But Della, knows what to look out for in terms of alarm bells as her apparently pleasant and genial teenage brother, himself a diagnosed psychopath, tried to kill her when he was just 13. Della has been on her guard ever since, and when a student is viciously attacked and Della is sent a detailed account of the crime, she’s more convinced than ever that Zoey has a terrible evil lurking inside of her. What I Know is a distinctive and original thriller with plenty of grit to keep those who appreciate bleak storylines captivated. It is a deliciously dark read and I particularly liked that Miranda Smith gave me the fodder to ponder the nature of evil whilst also featuring a plethora of twists, turns and misdirection to keep me flipping the pages. The author knows how to structure a book for maximum uneasiness, alternating the chapters between past and present and it worked brilliantly. Wonderfully addictive and engrossing, I read What I Know in one go. Miranda Smith's writing is assured, the tension is taut throughout, and the pace never flagged at all. A fantastic read from a brilliant author I'm delighted to have discovered. I received a complimentary copy of this novel at my request from Bookouture via NetGalley and this review is my unbiased opinion.

  • A fun read

    A good psychopathic thriller, hair raising in its premise, the writing sure added to the darkness that this book imbibed then exuded from its characters. What I knew was that author Miranda Smith did cause me some heebers-jeebers with the evil magic of her writing. My second book by this author was a fast read. I was captured pretty quickly from the first few lines. Darkness and impending danger along with an unhinged brain was subtly felt. I wasn't sure at times if I ought to believe the main character. She pulled me close yet threw me off with her convictions. The author kept me dancing on my toes in the entire book. A good breakfast read
