    This was the most ridiculous thing I've ever read. ...

    My reviews can also be seen at: https://deesradreadsandreviews.wordpr... ?Cross Her Heart? was my first read from, Sarah Pinborough and I really enjoyed it. The first chapter pulled me right in. Someone is very angry. The letter this person is reading has sent him into a ra...

    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...

    Do I write the scathing, saucy review or just let it go? #petty ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    Last year's Behind Her Eyes (2018) was one of my top reads. I really enjoy Pinborough's writing style and was beyond excited to read her newest. While this one has many of my favorite suspense elements ~ an unreliable narrator, a twisty plot, and a bunch of flawed characters (some ...

    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. ...

    I have such a tremendous love for Pinborough's writing--here's hoping the streak continues with this one! *Huge thanks to Edelweiss for providing an advanced reader's copy, for which I will leave an honest and fair review* ...

    I really enjoyed reading this book and practically raced through it. Lisa is a single mom and she seems to be overly protective of her teenage daughter. She probably is hiding a secret or two. That's all you really need to know other than this falls in the mystery/thriller genre. T...

    Cross Her Heart by Sarah Pinborough is another book that as soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to give it a try after reading Behind Her Eyes. But again before I will get to the rest of the review when finished with this one I know that it is another that will not be for everyone with a ...

    Starting at 12:01 on Saturday morning and finished by 7pm Sunday night, CROSS HER HEART consumed almost my entire weekend. A fast paced thriller with so many twists and turns, I can honestly say that I did not guess how it would end. I love when that happens! There are so many revie...

    Well this was a waste of time ? ...

    Well...... Let's talk about this one, shall we? Reading Sarah Pinborough is like delving into fine wines that should come with a warning label. It may or may not be your vintage. It may or may not swirl just right in your glass. And the bouquet may intrude upon your delicate pala...

    Unfortunately this book didn't work for me. I found it slow and repetitive, and lacking any big surprises that made me want to keep reading. The twist at the end was so far-fetched, which sometimes can be entertaining (like in her previous book, Behind Her Eyes), but this time I was ju...

    Sarah Pinborough has to be one of the most clever writers I?ve come across in recent years, she has a unique style of writing that works perfectly for me and I?m never quite sure exactly what to expect when I start one of her books. I was a huge fan of Behind Her Eyes, WTF ending a...

    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...

    I sped through this book and yet I never quite felt gripped by or connected to the story. In fact, as I write this review, details are already beginning to fade from my memory (I very much hope this is only because it was an unmemorable book and nothing to do with my short-term memory!...

    I am one of those people who loved Sarah Pinborough's thriller 'Behind Her Eyes' and was not annoyed by its ending at all. I thought it was glorious fun. I know it was unconventional and paranormal, but hey, it's FICTION. I love to be surprised. I love to gasp out loud at the end and p...

    This is one of the worst books I've ever read in my life, and hands down the worst I've read this year. Chelsea and I picked this up for our first month's Scared Suspense Book Club choice, and we both did not enjoy it. I felt the plot was over the top ridiculously unrealistic and unori...

    ???? / 5 Cross Her Heart is my first time reading a novel by Sarah Pinborough, but it will definitely not be my last. It seems that her novels can be rather polarizing, and I am happy to report that I really enjoyed this one. What it's about: Lisa is living a fairly quie...

    Behind Her Eyes by this same author was a five star read for me (and yep, I LOVED that ending) but this one was not. I?m giving it a three and that makes me sad because I was so looking forward to another amazingly nasty little read. CROSS HER HEART started out great. It?s a sto...

    There has been so much divisiveness with Pinborough's Behind Her Eyes, that I'm sure there are quite a few readers that are tripping around whether to read Cross Her Heart or not. Well, let me tell you... I LOVED Behind Her Eyes, but understood why it didn't fit some readers. While Pin...

    Lisa lives a quiet life with her teenage daughter, Ava. She keeps a close-hold on her, which chafes on Ava, who is ready for independence from her mother. But Lisa has a good reason. She has a secret past: one she's never shared with Ava or even her best friend and co-worker, Marilyn. ...

    Last year's Behind Her Eyes (2018) was one of my top reads. I really enjoy Pinborough's writing style and was beyond excited to read her newest. While this one has many of my favorite suspense elements ~ an unreliable narrator, a twisty plot, and a bunch of flawed characters (some ...

    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. ...

    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...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    Last year's Behind Her Eyes (2018) was one of my top reads. I really enjoy Pinborough's writing style and was beyond excited to read her newest. While this one has many of my favorite suspense elements ~ an unreliable narrator, a twisty plot, and a bunch of flawed characters (some ...

    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. ...

    I have such a tremendous love for Pinborough's writing--here's hoping the streak continues with this one! *Huge thanks to Edelweiss for providing an advanced reader's copy, for which I will leave an honest and fair review* ...

    I am one of those people who loved Sarah Pinborough's thriller 'Behind Her Eyes' and was not annoyed by its ending at all. I thought it was glorious fun. I know it was unconventional and paranormal, but hey, it's FICTION. I love to be surprised. I love to gasp out loud at the end and p...

    This is one of the worst books I've ever read in my life, and hands down the worst I've read this year. Chelsea and I picked this up for our first month's Scared Suspense Book Club choice, and we both did not enjoy it. I felt the plot was over the top ridiculously unrealistic and unori...

    ???? / 5 Cross Her Heart is my first time reading a novel by Sarah Pinborough, but it will definitely not be my last. It seems that her novels can be rather polarizing, and I am happy to report that I really enjoyed this one. What it's about: Lisa is living a fairly quie...

    Behind Her Eyes by this same author was a five star read for me (and yep, I LOVED that ending) but this one was not. I?m giving it a three and that makes me sad because I was so looking forward to another amazingly nasty little read. CROSS HER HEART started out great. It?s a sto...

    (view spoiler)[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 horribl...

    There has been so much divisiveness with Pinborough's Behind Her Eyes, that I'm sure there are quite a few readers that are tripping around whether to read Cross Her Heart or not. Well, let me tell you... I LOVED Behind Her Eyes, but understood why it didn't fit some readers. While Pin...

    Lisa lives a quiet life with her teenage daughter, Ava. She keeps a close-hold on her, which chafes on Ava, who is ready for independence from her mother. But Lisa has a good reason. She has a secret past: one she's never shared with Ava or even her best friend and co-worker, Marilyn. ...

    As soon as I learned that Sarah Pinborough had published a new book, I went out of my way to secure a copy. Last year, I read the author?s previous book and highly enjoyed it. BEHIND HER EYES was had the type of ending that will leave your head spinning, for a long time. No matter...

    2 stars. Hummm here's my very brief thoughts. Snails pace beginning - mediocre middle - ugly mess of an ending - superficial characters - repetitive - ridiculous plot twists. Absolutely nothing worked for me in this book - Ugh! P.S. can I get a refund. LOL! ...

    This was the most ridiculous thing I've ever read. ...

    My reviews can also be seen at: https://deesradreadsandreviews.wordpr... ?Cross Her Heart? was my first read from, Sarah Pinborough and I really enjoyed it. The first chapter pulled me right in. Someone is very angry. The letter this person is reading has sent him into a ra...

    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...

    Do I write the scathing, saucy review or just let it go? #petty ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    Last year's Behind Her Eyes (2018) was one of my top reads. I really enjoy Pinborough's writing style and was beyond excited to read her newest. While this one has many of my favorite suspense elements ~ an unreliable narrator, a twisty plot, and a bunch of flawed characters (some ...

    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. ...

    I have such a tremendous love for Pinborough's writing--here's hoping the streak continues with this one! *Huge thanks to Edelweiss for providing an advanced reader's copy, for which I will leave an honest and fair review* ...

    I really enjoyed reading this book and practically raced through it. Lisa is a single mom and she seems to be overly protective of her teenage daughter. She probably is hiding a secret or two. That's all you really need to know other than this falls in the mystery/thriller genre. T...

    Cross Her Heart by Sarah Pinborough is another book that as soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to give it a try after reading Behind Her Eyes. But again before I will get to the rest of the review when finished with this one I know that it is another that will not be for everyone with a ...

    Starting at 12:01 on Saturday morning and finished by 7pm Sunday night, CROSS HER HEART consumed almost my entire weekend. A fast paced thriller with so many twists and turns, I can honestly say that I did not guess how it would end. I love when that happens! There are so many revie...

    Well this was a waste of time ? ...

    Well...... Let's talk about this one, shall we? Reading Sarah Pinborough is like delving into fine wines that should come with a warning label. It may or may not be your vintage. It may or may not swirl just right in your glass. And the bouquet may intrude upon your delicate pala...

    Unfortunately this book didn't work for me. I found it slow and repetitive, and lacking any big surprises that made me want to keep reading. The twist at the end was so far-fetched, which sometimes can be entertaining (like in her previous book, Behind Her Eyes), but this time I was ju...

    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...

    Sarah Pinborough has to be one of the most clever writers I?ve come across in recent years, she has a unique style of writing that works perfectly for me and I?m never quite sure exactly what to expect when I start one of her books. I was a huge fan of Behind Her Eyes, WTF ending a...

    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...

    I sped through this book and yet I never quite felt gripped by or connected to the story. In fact, as I write this review, details are already beginning to fade from my memory (I very much hope this is only because it was an unmemorable book and nothing to do with my short-term memory!...

    I am one of those people who loved Sarah Pinborough's thriller 'Behind Her Eyes' and was not annoyed by its ending at all. I thought it was glorious fun. I know it was unconventional and paranormal, but hey, it's FICTION. I love to be surprised. I love to gasp out loud at the end and p...

    This is one of the worst books I've ever read in my life, and hands down the worst I've read this year. Chelsea and I picked this up for our first month's Scared Suspense Book Club choice, and we both did not enjoy it. I felt the plot was over the top ridiculously unrealistic and unori...
