My thanks to the publisher for my copy of this book
📖 My Review..
When we first meet her, local GP Kate O' Leary has been arrested on suspicion of the murder of a teenage girl whose body has been found in horrific circumstances. Whilst Kate protests her innocence there are people in the small Irish village of Annacairn who assume that she is guilty and set about trying to prove it. With limited friends Kate is at the mercy of a group of vigilantes who are determined to wreck revenge.
With wide ranging themes covering abortion, LGBTQ, loneliness, and fatal attraction there is more than enough to keep in the story bubbling along although there were times when I felt the dialogue was a little bit awkward and I had to suspend belief on more than one occasion, but hey, this is fiction and overall the book kept my attention.
The Woman at No.13 is a suspenseful thriller with an array of characters who, whilst largely unlikable, do give the story a dark and, quite sinister, edginess.
Best read with ...A knickerbocker glory with crystallized pecans
