OK, it’s happened to me twice this month. I gave 3.5 stars to two of my very favorite authors. Both times I have been in the vast minority of reviewers, thankfully. I want my favorite authors to do well, as I want to keep reading their stuff till I die.
So what happened here? My biggest issue is that I failed to connect with any of the characters in She Did It. That’s a deal breaker for me—having no one to passionately root for. Tamara was OK, and I basically cheered for her, but not with all my heart. Sorry Tamara. Sorry Mel. Then there was the shifting timeline with three different time periods. I found that flow busting in this particular story. Also, the Kerrigan case the police were working on just didn’t grab me. The guy who was killed was a criminal. I didn’t really care about him. There was also not enough time devoted to this thread for me to bond with DC Carley Evans and DI Max Stanway, though I saw some potential in Carley as a possible lead character in a future book.
And geez, Esther was a real piece of work. Most readers will love her, but I’m saving myself for someone nicer.
Now there are definitely some fine things about She Did It. I was really interested in the inside look of the workings of a publishing house and its PR firm. That was great and I applaud Ms. Sherratt for giving that to us. The storyline is a good one. In addition, there are some nice twists, and I really liked the ending. And look at that beautiful cover (and not a backwards woman in sight)! The title is also a grabber.
The ratings for She Did It are fantastic so far. My outlier review is a little fish in a big pond. Now if you don’t mind a devious main character and don’t depend on needing a character to absolutely adore, then I recommend this book to you. There is plenty of story to get your teeth into and I feel certain you will enjoy it. Sorry Mel, you know how I feel about you, and I will still be reading all your books!
The story focuses on two women, Tamara and Esther who at first glance seem worlds apart, but upon further inspection they may have more in common than meets the eye. Both have secrets in their pasts that they would like to keep quiet and both have a history of instability, making me constantly question who was reliable or if either of them even were?! The lies and betrayals run deep with these two and they both seemed to have hidden agendas that weren’t revealed until the end.
True to Sherratt’s usual form this opens with a tense scene then flips to three months prior and it also occasionally flashes to the present day. This is fairly fast paced and kept me on my toes throughout as I tried to piece together the past events as well as try to connect them to what was happening currently. Sherratt has the unique ability to create characters that are memorable but also believable, the scenarios she conjures up are scary because you can actually imagine them happening, there is a realism to her writing style that is riveting.
I feel like I’ve said enough in terms of the plot, but if you like psychological thrillers you will enjoy this one. That sense of uneasiness and dread is felt throughout, the various plot threads come together in a stunning way and the ending had the exact type of chill that I adore in a great book!
Esther is quite a character. She absolutely terrified me! I have to say though, I did have conflicting feelings about her. Mostly she scared the crap out of me and I wanted to scream at Tamara for not seeing through her. I did also feel very sorry for her when we are told of what she went through in the past. Not that this condones any of her actions, but goes some way to explaining why she has serious issues. I wouldn't call her a likeable character though.
This book is full of tension and suspense. It was almost like watching one of those films where you're screaming at the TV, “It's her, it's her! Don't go in there!” She Did It is the perfect title! I loved that Tamara's business is centred around book publicity too.
A brilliantly written, character driven story with some shocking twists. And that ending!!
It certainly kept me on the edge of my seat and I highly recommend.
