The Nurse by J.A Corrigan


Goodreads  Blurb:

Rose Marlowe is a hard-working nurse, a loving wife, and a merciless killer. Or so she says. Despite her confession, it is hard to believe that this beautiful, kind woman could have killed her vulnerable patient in cold blood.

Down-on-his luck author and ex-journalist, Theo Hazel, is convinced that there’s more to what happened than Rose is telling, and so decides to visit her behind bars to write her story. His first surprise comes when Rose reveals that the victim was not a stranger to her.

As time goes on, it seems that Rose is letting Theo see behind her perfect mask. With each new visit, he learns terrible new things about her heart-breaking past. With each new visit, he becomes more and more convinced that she can’t be a killer. But is he trying to free an innocent victim, or falling prey to a calculating murderer?

Things I liked:

1) I absolutely loved the dual time lines

2) I loved Rose. She has been through a lot but still was a good person.

3)  I thought that the relationship in the book was done so well. Not one of those toxic relationships at all.

4) I think Theo really made this book. He was done so well and really cared about Rose.

Things I was not fond of:

1) Really the only thing I did not like was how the ending went. I don't think it was super twisty like I expect from a thriller to be. 

My rating: ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ

*I received this book from NetGalley on a read and review basis*
