High-flying lawyer Jessica Wells has it all. A successful career, loving husband Tom and a family she adores. But one case – and one client – will put all that at risk.
Edward Blake. An ordinary life turned upside down – or a man who quietly watched television while his wife was murdered upstairs? With more questions than answers and a case too knotted to unravel, Jay suspects he’s protecting someone…
Then she comes home one day and her husband utters the words no-one ever wants to hear. Sit down… because I've got something to tell you….
Now Jay must fight not only for the man she defends, but for the man she thought she trusted with her life – her husband.
📖 My Thoughts..
Jessica Wells is a successful lawyer who is called upon to take the criminal defense case of Edward Blake who has been accused of murdering his wife. From the beginning Jessica (Jay) firmly believes in Edward's innocence and is going to do all she can to to prove it. However, with her mind firmly fixed on the murder case Jay is then little prepared when a devastating revelation from her husband sends her own family life into free fall.
Oh, what a tangled web is revealed in this fascinating story as not only do we get an intimate sense of what really happened to Edward's wife but we also get a fly on the wall view of Jay's family dynamics and watch how this personal family drama impacts on her professional life.
In terms of murder plot and whodunit there is much to take in, and the story overall has some clever twists and turns which I really didn't see coming. However, I have Something to Tell You is not just a murder mystery as digging deeper into the narrative an emotional story starts to emerge about Jay's fractured relationship with her husband, Tom.
In I have Something to Tell You this talented author brings to life a set of believable characters, and places them very carefully into the heart of a complicated, and emotionally, fraught story about shattered lives, which are irrevocably changed by secrets, bad decisions, deception and lies.
