The Alibi Girl by C.J. Skuse
About The Book
JOANNE HAYNES HAS A SECRET. THAT IS NOT HER REAL NAME. And there’s more. Her flat isn’t hers. Her cats aren’t hers. Even her hair isn’t really hers. Nor is she any of the other women she pretends to be.
Not the bestselling romance novelist who gets her morning snack from the doughnut van on the seafront.
Nor the pregnant woman in the dental surgery. Nor the chemo patient in the supermarket for whom the cashier feels ever so sorry.
They’re all just alibis. In fact, the only thing that’s real about Joanne is that nobody can know who she really is. But someone has got too close. It looks like her alibis have begun to run out….
Joanne Haynes is the main character of this story, but remember that Joanne is not her real name… and do you want to know something more? Depending on who is she talking to with her name and way to act, change completely. So, the main question would be, what is she really hiding? Why so many lies and secrets? But now someone is watching her… why?
This is a book difficult to review without making any spoiler, so I’ll try to keep the review spoiler free! 😉
The story is interesting and with a dark humour that I am sure you’ll love! Joanne is not an easy character to like, but, you will feel for her and try to know more about her story, why her past make her the way it is.
This is a twisted and dark book, the characters are very well written and described, no matter your feelings about them, you’ll want to know more about them and their story!
I’ll admit that I was really eager to read this book, I’ve read so many good review of C.J. Skuse previous books that I was eager to read something myself too! And I wasn’t disappointed, the story is twisted and with a dark humour. I am used to read thrillers, but humour is difficult to find in them!
This is a book with humour, murder, twists, lies and love; a reminder that the past makes the way we are now, for good or bad.
