Capricorn Cravings by Trish Jackson
Review by Joan Ellis

Wow! 5 stars
This book had me at the first page. A racy read and a pacey plot kept me hooked. Trish’s writing pulls no punches. Characters are refreshingly human.

Gritty heroine, Riley Shaughnessy has a hidden backstory but when a serial killer strikes in Shady Valley, she can’t keep her past a secret for long. The victim, a young, single mum worked for Riley at her veterinary practice and her brutal murder is the beginning of a chain of events that will change Riley’s life forever. Feisty, flawed and likeable, I was rooting for her the whole way.

New book, new genre

Why didn’t I move when I found myself next to a murderer on a train? I spoke to him for 60 minutes and during that time I was repulsed, shocked and terrified but never bored. Any normal person would’ve moved. Not me. This encounter had all the makings of a psychological thriller written all over it. I started to plot ‘The Killing of Mummy’s Boy’.
