LoveReading View on Cross Her Heart

 Lisa has a sixteen-year old daughter Ava.  They are close.  She has one good friend, a work colleague, Marilyn.  These three are our narrators with a few media and legal commentaries interwoven between them.  It is a tale that shifts back and forth in time.  Lisa has a dreadful secret that emerges when Ava saves a toddler’s life and the press move in.  Ava then turns against her mother and we, the reader, get some of Lisa’s horrific childhood along with a whole lot of red herrings.  The novel is full of nasty things happening to defenceless people.  With false leads and trails with many twists and turns to keep you guessing, it has a pretty dramatic plot – very disturbing.

Cross Her Heart Press Reviews

'Cross Her Heart is dark, unflinching and disturbing and there was parts of it I wanted to read from between my fingers... Heart-breaking in places, twisty as hell. I'd like to claim that I guessed the ending but Sarah stayed one step ahead of me all the way through. Pacy, unnerving, addictive read with a dark, dark heart' -C. L. Taylor, bestselling author of The Accident

'Sarah Pinborough does it again with this disturbing descent into a heart of darkness. Highly recommended' - Cass Hunter, author of The After Wife

'Bloody Brilliant' - Stephen King

'Original and compelling, the very definition of a page-turner' - Sun
