Not an accident – a murder among friends.

My Review

I really enjoyed this thriller set in Scotland around New Years Eve.

I took part in a fab readalong on Instagram over the course of a week organised by the Tandem Collective and Harper Fiction. There were  notes left in the book that prompted us to discuss in our stories and posts, a really clever way to get some buzz around a book. We were  allotted a character from the book which made the reading even more interesting, especially as I really didn’t like my character.

All the characters had something to hide and most of them weren’t nice people at all. There were some very clever twists and turns throughout and of course lots of red herrings in true Agatha Christie style.

I had my suspicions about who the victim was, but of course kept changing my mind, and the same went for the murderer as well.

With some crime books I desperately try to work out who did what and where, but with this one I just wanted to enjoy the wild ride, and wild it certainly was!

I definitely recommend this one to thriller lovers especially ones set in remote locations.
