BOLD AND SHOCKING, BLOOD ORANGE WILL HOLD YOU IN ITS GRIP UNTIL ITS FINAL, HEARTSTOPPING CONCLUSION.

Alison has it all. A doting husband, adorable daughter, and a career on the rise - she's just been given her first murder case to defend. But all is never as it seems...

Just one more night. Then I'll end it.

Alison drinks too much. She's neglecting her family. And she's having an affair with a colleague whose taste for pushing boundaries may be more than she can handle.

I did it. I killed him. I should be locked up.

Alison's client doesn't deny that she stabbed her husband - she wants to plead guilty. And yet something about her story is deeply amiss. Saving this woman may be the first step to Alison saving herself.

I'm watching you. I know what you're doing.

But someone knows Alison's secrets. Someone who wants to make her pay for what she's done, and who won't stop until she's lost everything....

    Best read I’ve had for ages, so on point and real all the way through, I often get bored and flick through long winded memory pieces..but none of that here, played out in real time, perfect.
  • Nice read

    What a brilliant book, so clever in the way that it’s written. If you buy this book then expect to read it quickly because I found it to put down. I don’t think the main character is that likeable but you end up liking her because the people around her are awful. A fantastic read though, 5 stars from me.
  • Slow start but great ending

    I found it difficult getting into the book at the start. If it wasn’t for the book club I am in then I wouldn’t have continued with it. BUT I am glad I did once you get half way through it all starts happening, twists and unbelievable events! Definitely worth sticking to it as I couldn’t stop reading it!
  • Gripping!!!

    A enjoyable, fast paced read that got my attention quickly at the start. I went from disliking and being frustrated by the main character to supporting her towards the end. (Mainly because I disliked the other characters more!) Good twists, but a few you could see coming! A good one for a holiday or easy reading in the garden!
  • Couldn’t forgive the main character

    After a promising start the main character became so frustrating I gave up about a third of the way through. I couldn’t relate to her and found myself thoroughly disliking her and therefore didn’t care what happened to her.
