The Nurse By J. A. Corrigan

The Nurse By J. A. Corrigan


When you hear her story, will you believe her?

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?

My Thoughts:

Wow what a read! I found I really wanted to concentrate on this book so took my time, the reason I wanted to concentrate is because I wanted to work out if Rose was a killer or if she was innocent. This is a rollercoaster of a ride, that will take you on a fantastically well thought out and researched story. I found it a very moving and engaging read, one that I feel will stay with me as I just found it a little different. I didn’t want to put it down but then when I did I was thinking about it. I found the characters really made the story epic and how calculating they were. I was so suspicious of Rose and also a few other characters, I didn’t know what or who to believe which made it more exciting to me. The ending was not what I was expecting at all.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
