I was born in Barcelona and have lived in the UK for many years now. I’m a writer, translator (English-Spanish and vice-versa) and I’m a medical doctor and worked in Forensic Psychiatry many years. I also have a BA and a PhD in American Literature and Film, and a Masters in Criminology. I’ve always loved books and apart from writing them I review them often.
I write a bit of everything, check my books for more information and my about page for links.
My blog is bilingual, English and Spanish.

  1. I have read all the other titles you mentioned and loved them all for their individual situations. I enjoy how the writer goes round and round the main story–like peeling an onion–and removing layers till the reader sees the story unfold. I look forward to reading this one too. Must wait for a copy to come through our charity bookstore. Thanks for the excellent review, Olga. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Tess. Yes, her method of writing is fascinating, and for what I’ve seen she was doing presentations of her book and it’s proving popular, so I hope you get a copy soon. 🙂

    Love your great reviews Olga. May I ask how on earth you find the time to read so many books? 🙂

    1. Thanks, Debby. It’s not always easy and some books are more demanding than others, although I use the speech to text facility when I’m doing things around the house that don’t require all my wits about me, and sometimes if I’m going for a walk… Basically, if I can read while I do anything else, or listen, I will… So little time, so many books to read (including yours!)

    1. Thanks, Christoph. The story is intriguing, but as a writer, I must admit that her style and methods are very interesting to study. Have a great week!

  3. Good morning Olga, This does sound intriguing…and one I will put on my list. Your review, as always is excellent. Thank you and hope you are enjoying a lovely week…janet:)xx

    1. Thanks so much, Janet. I’m for one quite curious about her other books and will try and catch up with them as I’ve read some great comments about them.

  4. Speaking from experience, lives can be shattered with little effort. The subsequent events can certainly be intriquing, unexpected, shocking, and yes novel-worthy. 🙂
    Good luck to Laine with this one. Hugs all around.

      Thanks, Teagan. You’re right, of course.

  5. As I read the synopsis, and then your review, I was imagining this as a film. The Australians make some very good films, and I feel sure that this could be another one.
    Best wishes, Pete.

      You’re right, although it would take a pretty special filmmaker as a lot of the beauty of it is in the style. Peter Jackson early in his career did this very well, although perhaps Jane Campion… Thanks, Pete.

    1. Methinks she’d do a great job, Sarah! 😉

    Very interesting to read your review, Olga. I’m a huge fan of Liane Moriarty – I’ve read everything I can get my hands on. However, I’ve not read this one yet. I hope you enjoy reading other books she’s written. I can thoroughly recommend The Husband’s Secret and, my favourite, What Alice Forgot.

    1. Thanks, Wendy. I’m very intrigued, for sure and I take note of your recommendation. Mind you, it might take me a while to get there and your book is one of the ones on my list. 🙂

    I’ve read two of her books,Olga, and they were a treat!

    1. Thanks, Noelle. I’ll have to try and catch up with them too, but unless I take a holiday from everything else… Now, that’s an idea!
