56 Days By Catherine Ryan Howard

56 Days By Catherine Ryan Howard



No one even knew they were together. Now one of them is dead.

56 DAYS AGO
Ciara and Oliver meet in a supermarket queue in Dublin and start dating the same week COVID-19 reaches Irish shores.

35 DAYS AGO
When lockdown threatens to keep them apart, Oliver suggests they move in together. Ciara sees a unique opportunity for a relationship to flourish without the scrutiny of family and friends. Oliver sees a chance to hide who – and what – he really is.

TODAY
Detectives arrive at Oliver’s apartment to discover a decomposing body inside.

Can they determine what really happened, or has lockdown created an opportunity for someone to commit the perfect crime?

My Thoughts:

This was a hard review to write as I get put of with books that involve the pandemic but this book interested me as the pandemic is not just casually thrown into the story, the story evolves around the pandemic. I found it interesting and I love the descriptions that Catherine the author uses, I felt as though I was seeing the pandemic through two new sets of eyes and it was eye opening to see their views on the whole thing. There is suspense, and a few twists to make the story more exciting, I found the characters were great and relatable, I liked them up until a certain point. I felt the ending was a good one too.

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