l am not British so I do not understand the class system as it is portrayed in this book. Can people still get away with it in this day and age? I found the behavior of the two principal characters boorish and tedious, and the disjointed timeline confusing. I cannot recommend this book. Not happy Mel.
I’ve not been disappointed by Mel Sherratt’s novels to date so when she announced she was writing a psychological thriller, I was rather excited. I love psychological thrillers; they’re my favourite kind of crime fiction. Has Mel Sherratt pulled off the side step from her usual gritty crime novels into psychological thrillers? Well I can tell you she has done it with bells on! I loved this book from the very start with the opening sequence capturing my attention and not letting it go to the final words talking of revenge!
I really felt for Tamara; she’s trying to prove herself for how she is not who her parents are. She wants to stand on her own two feet and be a modern independent woman, not the woman her parents expect her to be. It’s not easy proving yourself.
Now Esther is someone I really didn’t take to when she first came along. She’s a girl with secrets and a hidden agenda and the more I read, the more I found out. Mel Sherratt has a way drip feeding tit bits of information but not the full story. Plenty to make me keep turning the pages at a rapid pace!!
As with her other novels, Ms Sherratt has cast an element of darkness in her writing and for a psychological thriller this is a must! I would love to see more psychological thrillers from the keyboard of Ms Sherratt!!
Huge thanks to Mel Sherratt for my advanced copy of She Did It!
Interesting book. A little dark and twisted. I found it a little slow to get into, though that could be just the frame of mind I was in when I started it. The characters were very different and well written, but I didn't feel much of an emotional attachment to them. I really enjoyed the twists at the end and it had me thinking about it for quite a few days afterwards.
