We’re delighted to be sharing Laura’s thoughts on tour today for She Was The Quiet One by Michele Campbell.

Because murderers are never who you expect…

She was the quiet one… but is she guilty?

For twin sisters Rose and Bel, enrolling at the prestigious new boarding school should have been a fresh start. But with its sinister rituals and traditions, Odell soon brings out a deadly rivalry between the sisters.

For Sarah and husband Heath, the chance to teach at Odell seems like the best thing that ever happened to their small family – a chance to rise through the ranks and put the past behind them.

Until one dark night ends in murder.

But who’s guilty and who’s telling the truth? And who’s been in on it all along..?

Review

A gripping thriller with sibling rivalry, murder, secrecy and plenty of suspense.

Twin sisters, Bel and Rose move to a boarding school after their mother’s death. With their differing looks and personalities they soon lead their own lives within the school.

Bel keen to be popular finds herself friends with senior girls who have a dark side, while Rose is enjoying the new academic opportunities. Bel’s increasing worrying behaviour leads to friction between the sisters. This friction is noted by other characters, which is used during the testimony chapters to highlight the twins rivalry.

Even though I guessed the outcome I thoroughly enjoyed this book as the plot could have gone in different directions, which kept me guessing.

A great read, I couldn’t put it down!
