#amreading – What, Why, While :  The Girl She Was Before by Jess Kitching @kitching_jess @kingsleypublis1

What (am I currently reading)?

I am currently reading the crime thriller The Girl She Was Before by Jess Kitching.  It is being published by Kingsley  Publishers on the 31st October 2021. 

Book Blurb (taken from https://www.kingsleypublishers.com/  )

A crime thriller with a brilliant twist you won’t see coming!! Powerful, packed full of gruelling details that will linger with you long after the book has finished.

Nat lives a picture-perfect life, but it wasn’t always this way. A victim of horrific bullying when she was a teenager, Nat will do anything to keep distance between the girl she was before and the woman she is now.

But when her best friend is murdered and people begin to point their finger at her, Nat’s new life quickly begins to unravel.

To Nat, it’s no surprise that the crime happened at the same time as the return of her biggest tormentor, Chrissy Summers. A woman with a violent streak who destroyed lives when she was younger and isn’t afraid to do it again.

Face to face with the past she so firmly keeps behind her, Nat’s sanity wavers as her determination to reveal Chrissy as the monster she knows her as rises to dangerous heights.

The question is, can Nat prove Chrissy is a killer, or will Chrissy get to Nat and her family before she has the chance? You can’t outrun the past…

About the Author:

Jess Kitching is an avid reader, writer and binge-watcher. Originally from Bradford, England, she currently lives in Sydney with her fiancé Jack. Her two goals in life were to move to Australia and have a book published. To be able to say she has done both is something she still can’t wrap her head around.

Why (have I chosen to read it)?

I love crime thrillers, and so when the publishers sent me the above book blurb it sounded just my sort of book – human interest within a thriller. 

While (I  am reading it) 

I’ve had “the bug”, some are calling it a Super Cold, surely with a fever it’s flu?   Who’s knows, just wish it would fully go away.  Anyway I’ve been really pleased to have The Girl She Was Before to keep me company (it has been really keeping my interest) – along with my beautiful old cat.  I missed a lot of rain whilst I was inside, and see that it arrived as snow on the higher peaks. 

All the best, Emma
