The Nurse’s Secret by Liz Lawler

I’m delighted to tell you about this thrilling book, which is published today. Thanks so much to Bookouture for the copy of the book and invitation to be part of the tour.

Book Description:

Loving wife. Caring nurse. Liar.

You trust her with your life… She has a deadly secret.

In hospital, lives begin and end every day.

The doctors and nurses work round the clock to keep their patients breathing, yet death is part of their routine.

When the police arrive in the brightly lit corridors, asking for pretty, young, Nurse Shaw, staff and patients start talking.

The say Sarah Shaw’s husband has been murdered. They’d only been married for a few short months.

The police want to know where Sarah was that night. And why the medicine went missing from the hospital a few days before.

As William Shaw’s complicated past unravels it’s clear that Sarah has secrets of her own. But as she delivers pills in paper cups with a stiff smile and shaking hands, her patients want to know, is she a killer, or is her life in danger too?

An addictive psychological thriller that will have you glued to the pages until the final shocking twist. Perfect for fans of K.L. Slater, Shari Lapena and Clare Mackintosh.

My Review:

What a totally addictive read this book is!

In this book, nothing is as it seems. There are so many secrets and lies and a super twisty plot. Once you start reading it you won’t be able to put it down.

The story is told from several persons’ perspectives and each time it nudges us a little closer to the truth. It’s a complex plot, with many layers, and we get Sarah’s story, a fascinating police procedural storyline, and the stories of those who are working on the case.

I was totally caught up in this book and spent an entire evening, TV off, just finishing it as I had to find out what had happened. This is not a straightforward plot, and it’s not one that you’ll guess before time.

This book is a psychological thriller with a difference. Yes, it’s compelling, gripping and intriguing with lots of suspense, but it’s also dark and poignant with a real richness and depth to both the plot and the characters. These are characters who you will care about, whose lives you will become immersed in, and there’s an almost movie-like quality to the book. It would make an amazing TV drama.

Highly recommended for an addictive and hard to put down read that will keep you enthralled.

My Rating:

Rating: 5 out of 5.
