    Sarah Pinborough has huge numbers of fans of her twisted psychological thrillers and I am sure most of them will love her latest book too. I have to admit to being less than enamoured with Behind Her Eyes and I hoped that was just a blip and that I would like this more. I cannot deny t...

    3.5 stars Lisa is a single mother raising her sixteen-year-old daughter, Ava, without any help. She mainly keeps to herself but does have a friend from work named Marilyn. Both women like to keep to themselves and both have secrets. Ava also has secrets. She is a member of the swim ...

    Genuinely brilliant on way too many levels to mention them all. But - Characters. Depth. Relevance. Emotionally stunning. Creatively insightful. Heart stopping at times and beautiful in all the right places - kind of sums it up. Basically read this today because it was so engagin...

    I must admit I picked up Cross Her Heart with trepidation, I absolutely loved Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough, you know the one I mean, it?s the one you probably saw all over social media with the #WTF hash tag. This one comes with the tag Don?t Trust Her Books, and never a tru...

    It's been a long time since I read a book in 24 hours but I could not put Sarah Pinborough's latest twisty offering down! As a seasoned thriller reader it's not often that a plot twist catches me completely off guard but Sarah managed it several times in one book. The plot is expertly ...

    The more thrillers and crime novels I read, the more appreciation I have for writers who can take an existing formula and make it work, fill it with anticipation and uncertainty, get you obsessively curious about what is or isn't going to happen. Being able to do that is like a magic t...

    Lisa can never fully be at ease as she cannot quite put her dark past behind her. A past she has worked very hard to keep secret from everyone in her life including her daughter Ava and her best friend Marilyn. Her priority is to keep her daughter safe and to give her the best life she...

    Sarah Pinborough's novels mess with my head. Seriously, when I read Behind Her Eyes I had strange, surreal dreams. With this book, Cross Her Heart, I felt distinctly unnerved each time I put it down as though I were still trapped within the pages. It's dark, unflinching and disturbing ...

    Sarah Pinborough is an extraordinary writer, constantly surprising, and enchanting and shocking by turn. This is both clever and extremely harrowing. The skill is immense although at times Cross Her Heart is too tenderly painful for this reader. Nevertheless, excellent. A review to fol...

    Cross Her Heart by Sarah Pinborough is an incredibly emotional and captivating read. As a mother or daughter, female readers will love this narrative, being able to feel the characters? emotions and understand their actions entirely. This book is an emotional rollercoaster, combining...

    Having loved Behind Her Eyes, I was beyond excited to be able to read Cross Her Heart which was published last week. How would this new book measure up to the #WTFThatEnding hype of Behind Her Eyes? Well in my eyes, pretty good!! I think I actually enjoyed it even more and those of you...

    Her Best Book to Date Let me start off by saying that thankfully this one was more like ?Thirteen Minutes? than ?Behind Her Eyes? as I don?t think I could have coped with another impossible, outside-the-realm-of-possibility ending. Once was clever, albeit weird, but twice ...

    3.5 I raced through this as I was desperate to find out what was really going on! The whole premise of this book is secrets and lies and that no one is really what they appear to be on the surface, and that makes everyone untrustworthy... its a very twisty Book, and the pace is very...

    3.5 stars Lisa is a single mother raising her sixteen-year-old daughter, Ava, without any help. She mainly keeps to herself but does have a friend from work named Marilyn. Both women like to keep to themselves and both have secrets. Ava also has secrets. She is a member of the swim ...

    Having adored "Behind Her Eyes" and totally enjoying the wacky ending it had, I was very much looking forward to reading Sarah Pinborough's latest offering "Cross Her Heart". Although the storyline or ending to this one wasn't anywhere near as crazy, I thoroughly enjoyed it and found ...

    Forced, redundant, and apathetic. Slow to start and a spiraling mess by the end. Cross Her Heart is an unsurprising thriller whose superficial narrative hinges on information withheld from the reader and characters with flimsy motives. ...

    Genuinely brilliant on way too many levels to mention them all. But - Characters. Depth. Relevance. Emotionally stunning. Creatively insightful. Heart stopping at times and beautiful in all the right places - kind of sums it up. Basically read this today because it was so engagin...

    I must admit I picked up Cross Her Heart with trepidation, I absolutely loved Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough, you know the one I mean, it?s the one you probably saw all over social media with the #WTF hash tag. This one comes with the tag Don?t Trust Her Books, and never a tru...

    Having read and enjoyed Behind Her Eyes I was very much looking forward to reading Cross Her Heart and was absolutely delighted to receive a proof copy from Harper Collins. The chilling prologue sets the scene and I had expectations of what was to come. With a timeline moving betwee...

    Warning: Really upsetting content, child abuse, forced prostitution, child grooming etc. DNF at 86% Honestly this book is so upsetting. Very strong theme of child abuse, I just can't read this. I will never understand who could enjoy reading such upsetting horrible stuff- #sorry...

    It's been a long time since I read a book in 24 hours but I could not put Sarah Pinborough's latest twisty offering down! As a seasoned thriller reader it's not often that a plot twist catches me completely off guard but Sarah managed it several times in one book. The plot is expertly ...

    The more thrillers and crime novels I read, the more appreciation I have for writers who can take an existing formula and make it work, fill it with anticipation and uncertainty, get you obsessively curious about what is or isn't going to happen. Being able to do that is like a magic t...

    This is the first book I?ve read by Sarah Pinborough, but I?m certain it won?t be the last. I was initially attracted to this book when a friend shared a post about it on her Facebook page, and I fell in love with the cover. It actually reminded me of one of my favourite ficti...

    I completely devoured "Behind Her Eyes", Pinborough's last bestselling novel, so whether to read this or not was an easy decision for me. I found "Cross Her Heart" a lot darker than BHE, I loved it! The darker the better in my opinion. It is twisty and engaging with interesting charact...

    My Review: I am a huge fan of Sarah Pinborough?s last book Behind Her Eyes and it went straight into my Top Ten books of 2016 even though it hadn?t been officially released until 2017. I am also a huge fan of psychological thrillers and therefore when I was given an Advanced Copy o...

    4.5 stars! Review to come! ...

    Lisa can never fully be at ease as she cannot quite put her dark past behind her. A past she has worked very hard to keep secret from everyone in her life including her daughter Ava and her best friend Marilyn. Her priority is to keep her daughter safe and to give her the best life she...

    Sarah Pinborough's novels mess with my head. Seriously, when I read Behind Her Eyes I had strange, surreal dreams. With this book, Cross Her Heart, I felt distinctly unnerved each time I put it down as though I were still trapped within the pages. It's dark, unflinching and disturbing ...

    Trigger warnings for domestic abuse, rape, child abuse and forced drug use Wow, what a book. Sarah Pinborough's second adult thriller is twisty, dark and disturbing - far more so than her previous novel Behind Her Eyes. Its told through the perspectives of three women; single mother...

    Sarah Pinborough has done it again: Cross Her Heart is a masterpiece; an incredible journey that?s more twisty and turny than the Tasmanian Devil doing The Twist on the Waltzers during an earthquake. Initially though I admit I was unsure ? the early part of the book felt similar...

    Sarah Pinborough is an extraordinary writer, constantly surprising, and enchanting and shocking by turn. This is both clever and extremely harrowing. The skill is immense although at times Cross Her Heart is too tenderly painful for this reader. Nevertheless, excellent. A review to fol...

    Cross Her Heart by Sarah Pinborough is an incredibly emotional and captivating read. As a mother or daughter, female readers will love this narrative, being able to feel the characters? emotions and understand their actions entirely. This book is an emotional rollercoaster, combining...

    Having loved Behind Her Eyes, I was beyond excited to be able to read Cross Her Heart which was published last week. How would this new book measure up to the #WTFThatEnding hype of Behind Her Eyes? Well in my eyes, pretty good!! I think I actually enjoyed it even more and those of you...

    Her Best Book to Date Let me start off by saying that thankfully this one was more like ?Thirteen Minutes? than ?Behind Her Eyes? as I don?t think I could have coped with another impossible, outside-the-realm-of-possibility ending. Once was clever, albeit weird, but twice ...

    3.5 I raced through this as I was desperate to find out what was really going on! The whole premise of this book is secrets and lies and that no one is really what they appear to be on the surface, and that makes everyone untrustworthy... its a very twisty Book, and the pace is very...

    This is a brilliant, twisty story that will have you hooked from the first few chapters. There are a few shocks in store as you go through the book but this is what I expected from Sarah Pinborough. It?s hard to write a review without giving away any key parts of the story but I ...

    Story was ok. I was just expecting more. Listened with text to speech app. Glad I have changed the foul words in pronunciation to tame words. Not Clean. Overusage of Foul Language. ...

    This novel, ticks all the boxes of an ?award winner?. So, straight off the bat, I am calling that one (on 21st January!). After I finished the novel, I just sat there thinking ?how do you even learn to write like that??. The novel is jam packed full of twists and turns. Y...

    Best thriller I've ever read I think!! I cannot give this enough praise. So many twists and turns from this book. I adore all her other work but this was by far my favourite! I thought to begin with it started off a bit slow but looking back, it was just getting us to really know the c...

    This story is told by three people; Lisa, her teenage daughter Ava and Lisa's best friend and work colleague Marilyn, someone has something to hide but which of them is it and how will it affect their lives if that secret is revealed? I loved Sarah's previous book, Behind her Eyes, ...

    ????? 5 stars! I loved Behind Her Eyes, one of the best books of last year in my opinion, so I couldn?t wait to read this book. It was another great read. Hooks you in, fast paced, no slow parts, no overly descriptive parts and it really has you trying to guess what h...

    Sarah Pinborough has huge numbers of fans of her twisted psychological thrillers and I am sure most of them will love her latest book too. I have to admit to being less than enamoured with Behind Her Eyes and I hoped that was just a blip and that I would like this more. I cannot deny t...

    3.5 stars Lisa is a single mother raising her sixteen-year-old daughter, Ava, without any help. She mainly keeps to herself but does have a friend from work named Marilyn. Both women like to keep to themselves and both have secrets. Ava also has secrets. She is a member of the swim ...

    Having adored "Behind Her Eyes" and totally enjoying the wacky ending it had, I was very much looking forward to reading Sarah Pinborough's latest offering "Cross Her Heart". Although the storyline or ending to this one wasn't anywhere near as crazy, I thoroughly enjoyed it and found ...

    Forced, redundant, and apathetic. Slow to start and a spiraling mess by the end. Cross Her Heart is an unsurprising thriller whose superficial narrative hinges on information withheld from the reader and characters with flimsy motives. ...

    Genuinely brilliant on way too many levels to mention them all. But - Characters. Depth. Relevance. Emotionally stunning. Creatively insightful. Heart stopping at times and beautiful in all the right places - kind of sums it up. Basically read this today because it was so engagin...

    I must admit I picked up Cross Her Heart with trepidation, I absolutely loved Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough, you know the one I mean, it?s the one you probably saw all over social media with the #WTF hash tag. This one comes with the tag Don?t Trust Her Books, and never a tru...

    Having read and enjoyed Behind Her Eyes I was very much looking forward to reading Cross Her Heart and was absolutely delighted to receive a proof copy from Harper Collins. The chilling prologue sets the scene and I had expectations of what was to come. With a timeline moving betwee...

    Warning: Really upsetting content, child abuse, forced prostitution, child grooming etc. DNF at 86% Honestly this book is so upsetting. Very strong theme of child abuse, I just can't read this. I will never understand who could enjoy reading such upsetting horrible stuff- #sorry...

    Book reviews on www.snazzybooks.com Cross Her Heart has atmosphere and mystery within its pages and I found myself gripped by the plot. Sarah Pinborough does a great job of making you think one way about a character before suddenly surprising you, and though I don't want to give to...

    It's been a long time since I read a book in 24 hours but I could not put Sarah Pinborough's latest twisty offering down! As a seasoned thriller reader it's not often that a plot twist catches me completely off guard but Sarah managed it several times in one book. The plot is expertly ...

    The more thrillers and crime novels I read, the more appreciation I have for writers who can take an existing formula and make it work, fill it with anticipation and uncertainty, get you obsessively curious about what is or isn't going to happen. Being able to do that is like a magic t...

    This is the first book I?ve read by Sarah Pinborough, but I?m certain it won?t be the last. I was initially attracted to this book when a friend shared a post about it on her Facebook page, and I fell in love with the cover. It actually reminded me of one of my favourite ficti...

    I completely devoured "Behind Her Eyes", Pinborough's last bestselling novel, so whether to read this or not was an easy decision for me. I found "Cross Her Heart" a lot darker than BHE, I loved it! The darker the better in my opinion. It is twisty and engaging with interesting charact...

    My Review: I am a huge fan of Sarah Pinborough?s last book Behind Her Eyes and it went straight into my Top Ten books of 2016 even though it hadn?t been officially released until 2017. I am also a huge fan of psychological thrillers and therefore when I was given an Advanced Copy o...

    4.5 stars! Review to come! ...

    Lisa can never fully be at ease as she cannot quite put her dark past behind her. A past she has worked very hard to keep secret from everyone in her life including her daughter Ava and her best friend Marilyn. Her priority is to keep her daughter safe and to give her the best life she...

    Sarah Pinborough's novels mess with my head. Seriously, when I read Behind Her Eyes I had strange, surreal dreams. With this book, Cross Her Heart, I felt distinctly unnerved each time I put it down as though I were still trapped within the pages. It's dark, unflinching and disturbing ...

    Trigger warnings for domestic abuse, rape, child abuse and forced drug use Wow, what a book. Sarah Pinborough's second adult thriller is twisty, dark and disturbing - far more so than her previous novel Behind Her Eyes. Its told through the perspectives of three women; single mother...

    Sarah Pinborough has done it again: Cross Her Heart is a masterpiece; an incredible journey that?s more twisty and turny than the Tasmanian Devil doing The Twist on the Waltzers during an earthquake. Initially though I admit I was unsure ? the early part of the book felt similar...

    Sarah Pinborough is an extraordinary writer, constantly surprising, and enchanting and shocking by turn. This is both clever and extremely harrowing. The skill is immense although at times Cross Her Heart is too tenderly painful for this reader. Nevertheless, excellent. A review to fol...

    Cross Her Heart by Sarah Pinborough is an incredibly emotional and captivating read. As a mother or daughter, female readers will love this narrative, being able to feel the characters? emotions and understand their actions entirely. This book is an emotional rollercoaster, combining...

    Having loved Behind Her Eyes, I was beyond excited to be able to read Cross Her Heart which was published last week. How would this new book measure up to the #WTFThatEnding hype of Behind Her Eyes? Well in my eyes, pretty good!! I think I actually enjoyed it even more and those of you...

    Her Best Book to Date Let me start off by saying that thankfully this one was more like ?Thirteen Minutes? than ?Behind Her Eyes? as I don?t think I could have coped with another impossible, outside-the-realm-of-possibility ending. Once was clever, albeit weird, but twice ...

    3.5 I raced through this as I was desperate to find out what was really going on! The whole premise of this book is secrets and lies and that no one is really what they appear to be on the surface, and that makes everyone untrustworthy... its a very twisty Book, and the pace is very...

    This is a brilliant, twisty story that will have you hooked from the first few chapters. There are a few shocks in store as you go through the book but this is what I expected from Sarah Pinborough. It?s hard to write a review without giving away any key parts of the story but I ...

    Story was ok. I was just expecting more. Listened with text to speech app. Glad I have changed the foul words in pronunciation to tame words. Not Clean. Overusage of Foul Language. ...

    This novel, ticks all the boxes of an ?award winner?. So, straight off the bat, I am calling that one (on 21st January!). After I finished the novel, I just sat there thinking ?how do you even learn to write like that??. The novel is jam packed full of twists and turns. Y...

    Best thriller I've ever read I think!! I cannot give this enough praise. So many twists and turns from this book. I adore all her other work but this was by far my favourite! I thought to begin with it started off a bit slow but looking back, it was just getting us to really know the c...

    This story is told by three people; Lisa, her teenage daughter Ava and Lisa's best friend and work colleague Marilyn, someone has something to hide but which of them is it and how will it affect their lives if that secret is revealed? I loved Sarah's previous book, Behind her Eyes, ...

    Her Best Book to Date Let me start off by saying that thankfully this one was more like ?Thirteen Minutes? than ?Behind Her Eyes? as I don?t think I could have coped with another impossible, outside-the-realm-of-possibility ending. Once was clever, albeit weird, but twice ...

    3.5 I raced through this as I was desperate to find out what was really going on! The whole premise of this book is secrets and lies and that no one is really what they appear to be on the surface, and that makes everyone untrustworthy... its a very twisty Book, and the pace is very...

    This is a brilliant, twisty story that will have you hooked from the first few chapters. There are a few shocks in store as you go through the book but this is what I expected from Sarah Pinborough. It?s hard to write a review without giving away any key parts of the story but I ...

    Story was ok. I was just expecting more. Listened with text to speech app. Glad I have changed the foul words in pronunciation to tame words. Not Clean. Overusage of Foul Language. ...

    Sarah Pinborough has huge numbers of fans of her twisted psychological thrillers and I am sure most of them will love her latest book too. I have to admit to being less than enamoured with Behind Her Eyes and I hoped that was just a blip and that I would like this more. I cannot deny t...

    I must admit I picked up Cross Her Heart with trepidation, I absolutely loved Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough, you know the one I mean, it?s the one you probably saw all over social media with the #WTF hash tag. This one comes with the tag Don?t Trust Her Books, and never a tru...

    It's been a long time since I read a book in 24 hours but I could not put Sarah Pinborough's latest twisty offering down! As a seasoned thriller reader it's not often that a plot twist catches me completely off guard but Sarah managed it several times in one book. The plot is expertly ...

    The more thrillers and crime novels I read, the more appreciation I have for writers who can take an existing formula and make it work, fill it with anticipation and uncertainty, get you obsessively curious about what is or isn't going to happen. Being able to do that is like a magic t...

    I completely devoured "Behind Her Eyes", Pinborough's last bestselling novel, so whether to read this or not was an easy decision for me. I found "Cross Her Heart" a lot darker than BHE, I loved it! The darker the better in my opinion. It is twisty and engaging with interesting charact...

    Lisa can never fully be at ease as she cannot quite put her dark past behind her. A past she has worked very hard to keep secret from everyone in her life including her daughter Ava and her best friend Marilyn. Her priority is to keep her daughter safe and to give her the best life she...

    Sarah Pinborough's novels mess with my head. Seriously, when I read Behind Her Eyes I had strange, surreal dreams. With this book, Cross Her Heart, I felt distinctly unnerved each time I put it down as though I were still trapped within the pages. It's dark, unflinching and disturbing ...

    Trigger warnings for domestic abuse, rape, child abuse and forced drug use Wow, what a book. Sarah Pinborough's second adult thriller is twisty, dark and disturbing - far more so than her previous novel Behind Her Eyes. Its told through the perspectives of three women; single mother...
