By: Catriona McPherson Published By: Midnight Ink Age Recommended: Adult Reviewed By: Arlena Dean Rating: 4 Book Blog For: GMTA Review: "As She Left It" by Catriona McPherson was a drama with good mystery thriller read, that once you got into the story it was hard to put down. We find that Opal Jones has come back to claim her childhood home that is located on 'Mote Street after the death of her mother from alcoholism. A part of this mystery was that "On Mote Street, a heavy sorrow hangs over every house, threatening to choke whatever threads of humanity are left" due to the fact that a young boy disappeared and was never found around the same time that Opal left town. The irony of it all is that many of the people still lived on 'Mote street.' Opal will come involved with trying to find out what had happened to this child. This is where I say you must pick up this read "As She Left It" to see what all is going on 'Mote Street. There will be many twist and turns along with some deep secrets that will be revealed. I found of the characters were somewhat developed, pathetic, charming, deceitful and even guilty in the search of the truth of it all. I did like out this author was able to show a neighborhood where even though was affected by this child's disappearance and everyone knew every one's business for the most part they kept quite. What will Opal turn up from her search of the truth...who is guilty of what? Maybe this has something to do with my Opal ran away in the first place. What a neighborhood! If you are interested in a good mystery thriller read then I would recommend "As She Left It" to you as a good read.

Mysterious atmosphere, suspense palpable from the first page. Opal is an intriguing main character, and I felt for her, and all the hardships she went through. I enjoyed how the mystery slowly unfolded, and we figured out more and more about the characters. Solid mystery read. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Oh my goodness... the cover of this book was very inviting... The story not so much. It was a real struggle to associate the lofty thoughts of Opal with her actual speech which was "blimey" "Oi" etc. I'm also not sure whether author Catriona McPherson could decide whether to write as an American or as an Anglophile, because together she had a hard time. The characters were annoying, unrealistic, and the storyline not engrossing. Needless to say I gave up half way through, flipped to the last two pages and discovered the answer to the mystery.

Poorly edited, only reason I completed the book is because when I start something I always finish it. Crazy I know!
