When She Was Bad is another great psychological thriller by Tammy Cohen.
This author is so good at creating well developed and believable characters. It’s probably the thing I love most about her books, and throughout this story, I struggled to know who to trust.
There are quite a few characters introduced early on in the book, so if you have a rubbish memory like me, you might want to make a note of the characters to help you keep track of who is who early on in the story.
Fiction book solves real life mystery...
I did giggle when the song Kumbaya was mentioned. I have honestly never discussed this song with my husband in the twenty years we’ve been together, yet only two days before reading this book, I was talking about primary school songs, and told him there was a religious song where we did some hand twirling to it while we sang, but neither of us could work out the song I was trying to remember, until I read this book, and I was so happy it helped me solve the mystery. I’ve also since discovered, thanks to videos of the song online, that the hand twirling I remember was probably sign language.
I would like to thank the publisher, Black Swan (Transworld Publishers) for allowing me a copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
