Book Review: Faithful Place

This is my first ever book review on my blog! In fact this is the first physical book (not on kindle) other that my text books for my degree, that I have read in the last goodness knows how long. 

When I was given an unexpectedly long break at work, I decided to nip to The Works to get some reading material. Usually I go straight for the trashiest chic lit I can find. Predictable, pink and totally unrealistic  This time, I felt like a change and picked this one up: Faithful Place by Tana French.

Frank Mackey is an undercover cop in Ireland, estranged from his family after his girlfriend, Rosie, absconds on the night of their planned elope to London.  
Decades later, Frank is forced to return to his childhood home, and dig up painful memories after the suitcase belonging to his first love is unearthed in the very street their adventure started. 

I have never read a crime novel before, and Tana has definitely convinced me to read more in the future. Though hard hitting, there were elements of love and affection woven into the plot line. I love a bit of love!

While not as much as a page turner as I thought it would be, I was desperate to get to the end to find out the conclusion to the mystery and, although I won't ruin it, I can say it was a big twist!

Thanks Tana for showing me there is more to reading than trashy romances! 

Star rating: 4/5
