Book Review - The Bridesmaid by Jenny Scotti plus Book Giveaway !!

The Bridesmaid
‘full of twists and turns which makes the book a real page turner’

A Love Affair... A Secret... A Murder...

Haddley, a quiet English village in the Midlands. Kelly Evans -- a sixteen year old girl -- is brutally murdered. Her body is discovered by a neighbour, and the police are called in to investigate. Kelly was young and beautiful, and her untimely death comes as a shock to all who knew her … or does it really?

The dark side of Kelly’s personality soon comes to light. She was ruthless and promiscuous, and stopped at nothing to get what she wanted, even if it meant wrecking other people’s lives. She made quite a few enemies, and among close friends and neighbours are some who might have had a very good reason for wanting to get rid of her.

The investigation takes a new and unexpected turn when a locket goes missing, and a connection is made with the twenty-year-old murder of a wartime movie star. As the police search the past for answers and gradually piece the mystery together, the respectable veneer starts cracking exposing a web of jealousy, sexual intrigue and deceit.

"The real gem of this particular novel is the excellent characters that have been created and each one of them you will know in your own life. The insight of how these people think and react to each other is first class. A true reflection of life in suburbia." - Beck Valley Books 

"If you are looking for a book full of twists and turns, then you need to check out The Bridesmaid: A Mystery. It will keep you guessing until the end. It is full of surprises. You think you know who is guilty one moment, and the next you think it is someone else. In fact, you will probably find yourself thinking that each character is guilty at some point in the book." - Kelli R. Guilbeau 

"I just couldn't put this book down. I felt hooked into the story from the first page. I really liked that most of the characters in the book had a reason for why they could have been the killer but that there wasn't one that was an outright frontrunner. I was left guessing to the end." - taken from

Our Book Review
A very good and enjoyable read with a easy plot to follow, written in simplistic language .

The story begins with the discovery of a young woman's body in the woods near a housing estate. The author then takes you back to before the murder and gives you a description, emotions and the going on's in the lives of the people who lived and knew the murdered girl. As the investigation unfolds the secrets and jealous intentions of the suspects shine through.

The real gem of this particular novel is the excellent characters that have been created and each one of them you will know in your own life. The insight of how these people think and react to each other is first class. A true reflection of life in suburbia.

As the mystery unfolds and the past secrets are unveiled it leads to open a can of worms related to a unsolved 20 year old murder. Lies, deceit, illicit love affairs and jealously are rife in this story and is full of twists and turns which makes the book a real page turner.

With short paragraphs it makes the book very easy to read and follow, the author makes you feel as if you a watching the events from afar. I really enjoyed this book especially because I could relate to the characters that the author had expertly created and with the unexpected twist.
