What an awesome review of Widow’s Island from book blogger, Nicki’s Life of Crime!

Wow….just wow, OMG, this is a perfectly paced, at times chilling page turner that hooks the reader in, keeps you captivated and glued to your kindle. Some parts of the story were so intense that I found myself at the edge of my seat and I’m certain that if I was in the habit of biting my nails, I wouldn’t have any left. The cast of characters were a mixed bag of realistic individuals, many of whom were untrustworthy and not who they appeared to be. I would love to watch a film adaptation of this unputdownable, addictive thriller. Worth far more than five stars and very very highly recommended. This is definitely going to be one of my favourite reads of this year.
