..Can destroy your life
‘Wow, wow, wow, this book had me guessing all the way to the end!’ ☆☆☆☆☆ Reader Review
When new mother, Laura Caldwell, opens the card dropped through her letterbox, she expected to see a heartfelt note, congratulating her on the birth of baby Shay.
Instead, she sees a message that makes her blood run cold. ‘Your husband is a murderer.’ It couldn’t be true, could it? Not Conor, her adoring husband. He couldn’t be behind the brutal killing of local barmaid, Vicky. Not him.
But while Laura fights to discover the truth about her husband, she’s also holding dark secrets of her own; secrets she’s spent years trying to hide. Could the card be a desperate attempt at revenge – or could her husband really be a murderer? There’s a tangled web between this perfect couple – and the truth might just destroy them…

My Review of Five Little Words by Jackie Walsh
I have to admit, although I did like the synopsis to this book, I wasn’t sure what to expect from Five Little Words, however, I did find it a really entertaining read and I had no idea who was the good guy and who wasn’t. I definitely didn’t expect the ending.
Five Little Words is well written and keeps you wanting to continue to read with plenty of whodunnit clues which lead you to the wrong person, it will keep you reading until the end.
Well done to Jackie for a successful story and can’t wait to read more from her.
