A stranger died to save you… now it’s your turn.
Meet Beth Turner.
From the outside she looks like any other thirty-three-year-old woman, with a gorgeous house and beautiful daughter.
But when Beth receives a threatening text message from an anonymous number on the way to her surprise birthday party, she knows her time is up.
Enjoy your birthday, Beth. It’ll be your last.
Beth has a secret that has haunted her past for as long as she can remember. A secret that only those closest to her know. A stranger died once… because of Beth.
As she arrives at her house, there’s only one thing she knows for certain, someone at the party wants her to pay.
Fans of The Perfect Couple by Jackie Kabler and The Wife by Shalini Boland will love Your Life for Mine!
Your Life for Mine is a read that popped up on my radar when I saw that Karen Clarke had co-authored a book with one of my favourite authors Amanda Brittany (which I still need to read!). Based on this, I was eager to read Karen Clarke’s latest offering and I was not disappointed.
I have used this example lately in a couple of my reviews of late and it is also fitting here, that Your Life for Mine plays out like a Lifetime Movie, although in this case, without the cheesy dialogue! Karen Clarke has put together an addictive tale that had me caught up in its web, unable to break free, until the final page.
The story kicks off immediately and Karen Clarke does not lift her foot off the accelerator until the end. It has been very well plotted, executed and with a cast of characters that have you second guessing each of their motives, makes for a great mystery to try and solve and such an enjoyable read.
Your Life for Mine is Karen Clarke’s first standalone in the psychological suspense genre and she has done a fantastic job. She is definitely an exciting new voice in the genre and I will be eagerly waiting and looking forward to reading what she comes up with next. It was a pleasure to read and review Your Life for Mine which I recommend.
Thank you to Karen Clarke, HQ Digital and NetGalley for allowing me to read an advanced copy of Your Life for Mine, which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
This review will be added to, Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, Amazon Australia & Amazon US. I will also add to NetGalley, Apple Books, Kobo, Google Play, Barnes & Noble & Waterstones if available. As I am from Australia, I am unable to add to Amazon UK.
Let’s Get to Know Karen Clarke
I live in Buckinghamshire with my husband and three grown-up children where I write psychological thrillers for HQDigital/HarperCollins and romantic comedy novels published by Bookouture.
Over the years I’ve been a secretary/bookkeeper, a wedding photographer, a pub manager, I’ve worked in a supermarket, a newsagent’s and as a librarian – all good for story ideas.
I now write full-time and when I’m not writing, I read a lot, enjoy walking – which is good for plot-wrangling and ideas – watching Netflix, baking and eating cakes. And then more walking to work off the cakes.
