Framed. Imprisoned. Pregnant.
Jenna thought she had the perfect life: a loving fiancé, a great job, a beautiful home. Then she finds her stepdaughter murdered; her partner missing.
And the police think she did it…
Locked up to await trial, surrounded by prisoners who’d hurt her if they knew what she’s accused of, certain someone close to her has framed her, Jenna knows what she needs to do:
Clear her name
Save her baby
Find the killer
But can she do it in time?
Blimey On My Life is a right rollercoaster ride of a read, pacy yet hugely thought provoking, one of those absolutely RIVETING page turners that swallow up a few hours of your own life.
I loved it and was horrified, emotionally charged storytelling with an unpredictable edge and a twisty bit of truth telling about life behind bars that will stay with you for a long time.
Jenna knows she didn’t commit the crimes she is accused of but proving that to the wider world from a prison cell is almost impossible. Pregnant and grieving, dealing with a circle of life she has no experience of, finding new friends but also dangerous enemies, Jenna has a mountain to climb and boy is she going to force you to climb it with her.
Without doubt Angela Clarke’s best novel to date, On My Life is a genuinely compelling, beautifully plotted character driven crime novel with heart and soul that I can’t do anything except highly recommend to everyone.
Brilliant. Just that.
