by Sandie Jones
I just finished reading “The Blame Game” by Sandie Jones and this is my honest review. Thank you to NetGalley and Edelweiss for providing me with an advanced copy in exchange for a review.
First of all, I am a big fan of Sandie Jones and I have read many of her books. Always entertaining and filled with crazy plot twists, this book is no exception.
The main character, Naomi, is a therapist who helps victims of domestic abuse. She herself comes from a dark family past, which seems like it should have been further explored but it wasn’t. Naomi tends to care too much for her patients in particular, a man names Jacob and a woman named Sara. She crosses the lines with both these patients which puts her in a compromising position when one of them goes missing.
In order to protect herself, she lies to the police and to her husband, Leon, but these lies end up making her look suspicious and she wonders who it is that is setting her up.
Through the course of the story there are many red herrings which leads the reader in a different direction, but it all wraps up in the end with quite the explosive reveal.
I enjoyed this book and I think that most fans of this genre will as well. The characters were well written and the story moved quickly it was exciting throughout. My only disappointment is that there was such a focus on Naomi’s past and her issues with her sister, and I feel like this plotline was dropped with no resolution. I would have liked to see what happened with Naomi and her sister.
Otherwise, an entertaining read by an author who never disappoints.
