Hey all! Another book review! I know I have been posting a lot of book reviews lately so here is the other one–Five Little Words by Jackie Walsh

Five Little Words: A completely gripping, fast-paced thriller by [Jackie Walsh]

When new mother, Laura Caldwell, opens the card dropped through her letterbox, she expected to see a heartfelt note, congratulating her on the birth of baby Shay.

Instead, she sees a message that makes her blood run cold. ‘Your husband is a murderer.’ It couldn’t be true, could it? Not Conor, her adoring husband. He couldn’t be behind the brutal killing of local barmaid, Vicky. Not him.

But while Laura fights to discover the truth about her husband, she’s also holding dark secrets of her own; secrets she’s spent years trying to hide. Could the card be a desperate attempt at revenge – or could her husband really be a murderer? There’s a tangled web between this perfect couple – and the truth might just destroy them…

Laura and Connor Caldwell welcomes their son Shay and bring him to their house. There were stacks of cards congratulating them for the birth of their son. But one card tells Laura that her husband, Connor is a murderer. That he murdered a girl named Vicky. Because of the night of Vicky’s murder, the last person Vicky had sent a message was to Connor. Laura starts investigating on her own but as she digs deeper, some secrets are threatened to make their way…

This book is an OK thriller. The writing was good and the author did a good making the reader hooked into the story. The first bits of the story was a bit boring–but then gradually, there was a slow climax in the middle until towards the end. Overall, despite being a slow paced thriller, this was actually a good thriller. The story is based on Laura’s perspectives and discovers her relationship with Connor, Amanda her sister and her mother-in-law, Maggie.

Overall this is a good thriller, worth three stars!
