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. This book does sound right up your alley, Olga. You’ve got me intrigued. A layered story and lyrical prose? Yes!

    1. I know you don’t mind the hard-hitting stuff, Priscilla, so I’m sure you won’t find it too much. Thanks for commenting and good luck with your writing!

  2. Thank you for your reviews and comments.

    1. Thanks, James. Good luck with all your projects!

  3. Great examples of the writing, Olga. I can already picture the film adaptation in my head.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. As this will become a series, I’m sure there will be plenty of material even for a TV series. And the setting would be great as well. Take care!

  4. Hi Olga, thank you for sharing about this book. I am very interested in the psychology of people and why they do the things they do so I think this is one I would appreciate.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. The book looks at very extreme behaviour, and it does not shy away from the less pleasant aspects of human emotions. It isn’t a book for everybody, but I know you read in many genres and are happy to explore complex issues. Stay well and enjoy the rest of the week.

  5. Thanks for this brilliant review, Olga. Wishing Louise huge success.
    I do love stories where the psychological aspect is the scariest part. This one sounds beautifully written. You chose the snippets well. Although this one is far too close to home. So, I appreciate the warnings.
    Wishing you a beautiful weekend. Hugs on the wing.

    1. Thanks, Teagan. Yes, she writes well, but it is true the topics she deals with are hard and painful for people who have lived through similar experiences, so it has to be approached with care. I hope you have a lovely weekend and your creativity keeps flying high. Hugs to you and Crystal.

    Sounds gripping Olga. I’m afraid to disturbing for me, but great review! <3

    1. Thanks, Debby. Yes, I didn’t think this would be one for you, but the book I’m reviewing on Tuesday made me think about you a lot. I think you’ll see why when you read the description and the review. Stay strong and keep smiling. ♥

  7. A great review, Olga – this sounds like a beautifully written book. Toni x

    1. Thanks, Toni. Yes, it is, although some of the issues in it can be very traumatic to some readers, so I advise caution. Have a fabulous week!
