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.

      Thanks, Christoph. Yes, we are well. I miss my long walks, but we’re hopeful things might improve soon. Keep well and give my love to Ryan and the girls.

    1. Thanks, Rosie. A great novel.

  2. Terry Tyler says:

    Great review, Olga – I have this to read too, having loved another book by JJ Marsh, and I am looking forward to it very much!

    1. Yes, I read your previous review and it was what inspired me to request this one (apart from the description). I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. 🙂

  3. Sounds compelling, though it also made me think of films. From your mention of Festen, through to The Big Chill.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. Yes, The Big Chill is an interesting comparison. I think you’d enjoy this one. Have a good week.

  4. Thank you Olga! A new direction for me and I had The Big Chill in the back of my mind so gratified to hear beetleypete’s comment. A really delicate review which gave nothing away, for which I am so grateful.

    1. Thanks, JJ. Rest assured your new novel in a new genre works well, and I’m sure many readers will be intrigued and gripped by it. As I read it I thought it would be a bit difficult to write the review without giving anything away, but I’m pleased if you think I managed. Readers have to discover it all by themselves, and I’m sure they won’t be able to resist. Pete is a great authority on films, and I’m sure he’d come up with the perfect cast for the film adaptation of your novel (and I think it would make a great movie). Good luck, and thanks for the opportunity!

  5. This sounds like a very interesting read, Olga. Secrets from the past that bind people together is always a fascinating premise.

    1. I totally agree, Robbie. Secrets and what a group will do to keep them so are an irresistible premise, especially when the characters are interesting and relatable. Have a fabulous week.

  6. The cover drew me in, the blurb intrigued, and your review hooked me! Adding this to my TBR list, Olga, thank you 🙂

    1. Thanks, Jacquie. Judging by your books and your reviews, I think you’ll love this one. 🙂 Keep well!

    Another fab review Olga. And this one is right up my reading alley. Just added to my wish list. Hope you’re keeping busy and staying sane while you’re staying safe. <3

    1. Thanks, Debby. I agree. I think you’ll enjoy this book and it’s going to be out on Friday. As for the lockdown, I’m sure we all have our moments, but yes, we’re coping and well so far. Things are starting to look up but it will be slow. Keep safe. ♥

        Here too Olga. Let us hope <3

  8. Thank you for sharing this, Olga. I’ll think about adding it to my TBR. 🙂

    1. Thanks. I think you’ll enjoy it.

  9. Ooo… I’m certainly intrigued. I like the title too. Thanks for this review, Olga. Kudos to JJ. Hugs on the wing!

    1. Thanks, Teagan. I think you’d enjoy this one. Have a great weekend! Big hugs!
