BOOK REVIEW THE RUMOUR BY LESLEY KARA

When single mum Joanna hears a rumour at the school gates, she never intends to pass it on. But one casual comment leads to another and now there’s no going back . . .
Rumour has it that a notorious child killer is living under a new identity, in their sleepy little town of Flinstead-on-Sea.
Sally McGowan was just ten years old when she stabbed little Robbie Harris to death forty-eight years ago – no photos of her exist since her release as a young woman.
So who is the supposedly reformed killer who now lives among them? How dangerous can one rumour become? And how far will Joanna go to protect her loved ones from harm, when she realizes what it is she’s unleashed?

Ive heard a lot of praise for this debut book on twitter so definitely a easy pre order and Christmas treat for me.

The cover and title are inticing so can see this attracting a lot of readers.

This is a excellent and cleverly written story and really shows what can happen when people dont think before they speak.

As someone studying psychology i find group behaviour fascinating to read and observe.

However also as a mum i know full well the constant fears we face in todays society so how would i react with information about a killer possibly living on your doorstep.

This makes you think outside your comfort zone .

You can feel the paranoia increase with each chapter especially when the threats get closer to Joanna and her family

Who can you trust?

Fast paced,twisty and compelling.

Lesley injects an addictive flow of her words and i cant wait to read more from her.

Will keep you guessing till the very end.
