Readers' Reviews

A clever, fun mystery

A puzzle inside of a puzzle, with characters you care about. Quirks of personality and accidents of circumstance turn ordinary lives into something unexpected. - Bill Adler, Author 

A pacy, full of intrigue, thrilling read that I couldn't put down

I thoroughly enjoyed the short snappy chapters. The characters' stories weave together perfectly as each one brings another piece to the puzzle that is Jessica's life! - Dash Fan Book Reviews

I was reminded of Elmore Leonard's writing with its punchy dialogue and fast pace

The author skilfully mixes tragedy with a dose of wicked humour. - Amazon reviewer

"After Jessica pulls you in from the beginning and we have multiple mysteries throughout. The chapters are extremely short and the story is fast paced. You will want to keep reading to see what will happen!"

- Jessica's Reading Room


"After Jessica starts in such a heart-breaking way and that's where the mysterious life of Jessica starts to unravel before Simon. I enjoyed the way the story jumped between perspectives. With each chapter, the pieces of Jessica's life slowly drop into place. 

Ms Bailey has packed plenty of intrigue and tension into this novel. I felt totally immersed. The characters felt real, Simon's grief and confusion after his sister's early demise gave out genuine emotion.
