Author Bio –
Lorraine Turnbull was born in Glasgow where she lived until 2005 when she and her family moved to Cornwall to run a smallholding. She relocated to France in 2017 where she continues to make cider, writes books and learns French.
Now this book to me was everything! It was funny, had wit, dark humour, pigs, puppies and of course throw in a little murder for good measure. It never once took away the seriousness of domestic abuse. It has friendship and love and everything in between. I’m going to be raving about this book for a while I think.
You really wouldn’t guess the book was about murder from the picture of the little old lady on the front cover. All the characters were well thought out and I love the fact that all relationships and friendships deepened as we went through the book.
I thoroughly enjoyed this read and would definitely recommend it to others that fancy a fast-paced read. I got through this in a couple of sittings and I am definitely looking forward to reading more from the author. Absolutely brilliant!
