The Black Sheep by Sophie McKenzie (A Review by Jennifer Boksman)
1 min read
Yes that is correct… 5.5 stars for this one, ladies. This thriller will keep you guessing to the bitter end. Just when you think you have it figured out, you don’t. The ending will knock your high heels off! This is a tale of betrayal and lies and Francesca can hardly believe that it is her family that is doing it.
Widowed just a year and a half ago, Francesca has grown closer to her family in this tough time. All is well until a stranger shows up at her murdered husbands memorial service, accusing her father of all kinds of horrible things. What unfolds is a story full of intrigue and twists and turns. The story delves into the controversial topic of abortion and then on top of that tackles Catholicism!
Without being “too preachy” or opinionated about either topic, Sophie McKenzie has written a thriller that kept me reading page after page. I was away on holiday and finished it in 2 mornings while soaking up the sun. You will race through this book, just as Francesca is, trying to uncover the truth about her husband’s murder, her father’s involvement and – to top it off – searching for her missing daughter.
This book will encourage you to read more of Sophie’s work; I know I will. Happy reading!
