crime novels, in my time, despite them not being my favourite genre For me, they provide a lighter source of relief, than my favourite classics or high fantasy, when I am poorly, sleep deprived, anxious, or feeling any other sort of ailment So whilst I do read the genre frequently it takes a rare novel from inside its ranks to make me want to drop everything and devour it immediately Blood Orange did just that.The synopsis came with three taglines Just one night Then I ll end it I did it I killed him I should be locked up I m watching you I know what you re doing These three lines led me to believe this would be a novel from a multitude of perspectives However, chilling prologue aside, it was maintained from just one This is Alison successful lawyer, mother of a beautiful little girl, and wife of doting husband But this is not how the reader is introduced to her We first see Alison getting blind drunk, competing for another man s attention, and blacking out at work only to be awoken by said husband and daughter, in the early hours of the next morning This does not paint her in the most favourable of lights and, as the novel continued, there was no further illumination provided to ensure the reader aligned with her And yet, somehow along the way, I did just that.This is where Tyce proved herself to me as an extraordinary deft and deceptive writer She created a novel with the narration of a largely unlikable character and still made her readers adjust to her perspective And whilst we are too busy focusing on Alison and her many issues, darker deeds were being delivered behind closed doorsI was hooked from the moment I opened this book and the only reason I have not awarded this the full five stars is that I went some way towards guessing how the whole thing would tie up The multitude of smaller dramas and mysteries along the way still left me often open mouthed with incredulity at having been deceived by them, however Tyce is a masterful manipulator Don t be surprised, whilst reading this, at what occurs behind your back and when your attentions are firmly fixated on where she demands them flag 31 likesLike see review View all 4

stories start to sound the same, or the pacing isn t quite what I prefer because I ve just read SO MANY OF THEM If you ask a lot of thriller reviewers, you ll see that they agree This is typically why I like to sprinkle other genre books in between these reads to refresh my brain for a bit But then I run into a book like this and I jump for joy, scream from the mountains, do my Snoopy dance and thank the publishing gods for finding Harriet Tyce and Blood Orange.While the book does talk about the murder case, the main storyline is Alison and her issues and I absolutely LOVE that I was so in tuned with everything I wanted to know about the murder case, I wanted to know what was going to happen to Alison I felt for her and wanted to slap her all at the same time I loved the little hints that led you in the wrong direction and while I did figure out one twist, the other MAIN one, I did NOT I could gush about this one all day Basically it s this PUT THIS ON YOUR TBR LIST February can t

him no and to stop all the other instances and got off on it I feel like this was just to set up his story line and death.4 What lawyer and mother would repeatedly turn their cell phone off like that

experience I felt quite breathless reading Blood Orange and, unusually for me, couldn t begin a new book immediately until what I d just read sank in and I d recovered It s no exaggeration to say that Harriet Tyce made my veins tingle the closer I got to the end of the book It s a corker The plot is just brilliant Yes, I guessed a couple of elements, especially in the subplot of Madeleine, but I also had some surprises along the way too indeed, some of the writing is genuinely quite shocking Occasionally explicit, I found Blood Orange spellbinding reading, so that I was removed from my comfort zone and transported to a world I m so glad is far from my own experience It was the insidious attitudes of those who should know better that I found so affecting and disturbing It s not possible to say without spoiling the read, but, trust me, it s a cracker of a story.I abhorred Alison s reckless behaviour, her affair with Patrick and her drinking, but by the end of Blood Orange I was entirely on her side Harriet Tyce has created an scarily compelling character in Alison who is complex, totally flawed and utterly believable As the novel reaches is climax I was willing her on What is such a triumph is the ambiguity surrounding Alison, Carl and Patrick Harriet Tyce shines a laser light on morality, revealing it in all its horrors and yet leaves the reader reeling, unsure of their own position and opinions.Harriet Tyce s prose is hugely affecting Although there isn t a vast amount of description, as she understands perfectly how much is needed to create a scene, I found it cinematic and vivid It was like watching events unfold as a kind of bewitched voyeur than actually reading a narrative It felt a little as if I were in the scenes with the characters like an out of body experience I think this is what I found so addictive about reading Blood Orange I was as manipulated by the writing as any of the characters in the book.Blood Orange is a fabulous book It entertains, certainly, but even it disturbs and unsettles the reader too The themes of trust, passion, obsession, truth and relationships seethe in a claustrophobic maelstrom of compelling writing I

Sometimes I just wanted to shake her She drinks too much, and she knows it, and keeps telling herself she ll stop, but she doesn t She adores her six year old daughter, Matilda, but doesn t spend as much time with her as she wishes she would.Allison s husband, Carl, picks up the slack in a passive aggressive manner, never failing to remind Allison what a terrible wife and mother she is He obviously resents Allison being the breadwinner in the family, while he struggles with his practice as a part time sex therapist.In addition to binge drinking with her coworkers after hours, Allison is having a sordid affair with Patrick, a colleague who doesn t treat her much better than Carl does Another habit she keeps telling herself she needs to break.Despite her shambles of a personal life, Alison s career is soaring She is assigned her first murder case, and Patrick, as solicitor, is co counsel The defendant, Madeleine Smith, has been accused of stabbing her husband to death, and she is ready to plead guilty But something doesn t add up And as Allison delves further into the case, she discovers many similarities in her own life.The ending is shocking and only then will the title of the book make sense.Allison does eventually grow stronger, but I had to wonder how much was forced by circumstances rather than her actually committing to change flag Like see review Jan 29, 2019
