BOOK REVIEW HOW I LOST YOU BY JENNY BLACKHURST

 A brilliant debut psychological crime novel, for fans of THE WICKED GIRLS.

They told her she killed her son. She served her time. But what if they lied?

I have no memory of what happened but I was told I killed my son. And you believe what your loved ones, your doctor and the police tell you, don’t you?

My name is Emma Cartwright. Three years ago I was Susan Webster, and I murdered my twelve-week-old son Dylan. I was sent to Oakdale Psychiatric Institute for my crime, and four weeks ago I was released early on parole with a new identity, address and a chance to rebuild my tattered life.

This morning, I received an envelope addressed to Susan Webster. Inside it was a photograph of a toddler called Dylan. Now I am questioning everything I believe because if I have no memory of the event, how can I truly believe he’s dead?

If there was the smallest chance your son was alive, what would you do to get him back?

Thank you to Georgina for sending me a review copy .

Im worried I wont do this mesmerising book justice so I will say firstly you NEED to read this book ,ive already read a fair amount of psychological thrillers this year as it seems 2015 is THE year for them .I love them and the intensity they make you feel when you have no idea where the story is going .

This book is incredibly clever and original and you will not see the events coming that do .

I  couldn’t put it down even reading when the adverts were  on and I finished it this afternoon as I was waiting for an appointment . Several times the kids were getting ignored as I was so hooked on the writing .

This will exceed any expectations and ideas you have of this subject or genre of book .It will blow your mind and can see it doing very well.

I felt anxious and paranoid turning the pages eager to read more but not wanting to finish it any quicker .

A fantastic gripping dark read ticking all the boxes that a psychological thriller should do .
