A Slow Fire Burning by Paula Hawkins: Review


A Slow Fire Burning buy link

A Slow Fire Burning started off a little slow and I was wondering how these characters were actually connected but now that it's becoming clear I'm here for all of it. Hawkins has created some pretty unlikable characters in this one, but once their backstories are revealed I can't help but think that I would probably be inclined to be a crappy person after going through what they go through as well. It doesn't excuse some of what they do but it sure explains it. The twists and reveals at the end of this one made up for the slow start for sure.

***I received access to the audiobook via the Influencers program.***


When a young man is found gruesomely murdered in a London houseboat, it triggers questions about three women who knew him. Laura is the troubled one-night-stand last seen in the victim’s home. Carla is his grief-stricken aunt, already mourning the recent death of yet another family member. And Miriam is the nosy neighbor clearly keeping secrets from the police. Three women with separate connections to the victim. Three women who are – for different reasons – simmering with resentment. Who are, whether they know it or not, burning to right the wrongs done to them. When it comes to revenge, even good people might be capable of terrible deeds. How far might any one of them go to find peace? How long can secrets smolder before they explode into flame?
