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

What a thrilling thriller!

When new mum Laura receives an anonymous card through the post, the five little words in it, bring her whole life crashing down. Your husband is a murderer! 

Immediately I was thrown into the mystery of who had sent it, and why. What secrets was Laura’s husband, Conor, hiding, or is it just someone trying to mess with their perfect life for kicks? Why would anyone accuse the popular Conor of such a thing? He doesn’t even know the murdered girl,  very well. Or does he?  Laura, with the help of her sister, Amanda, seek to find out the truth, but will they like what they find? 

There are a lot of red herrings and I was kept guessing throughout. I really enjoyed this well-written fun read, and how the characters who all seem to know what’s going on in each others lives, portray a sense of foreboding amidst a small village full of secrets. And what about Laura, is she as saintly as she likes everyone to believe? Could she be hiding a few secrets of her own from Conor? I found it all very exciting as I rushed through to the end to find out! One thing’s for sure, there’s a murderer loose in their neighbourhood, but who is it?

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


..Can destroy your life

Wowwow, wow, this book had me guessing all the way to the end!’ ☆☆☆☆☆ Reader Review

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…
