      What a read! I absolutely loved this book. Laura Elliot can sure tell a tale as she has in her previous books which has also gripped my attention from beginning to end.Guilty starts off with a gripping narration.A point where it says "A message to the Fearless. Then it says that no one can call them chicken again.Intrigued? I know I was.Just the cover drew me in, but once I started to read I just honestly couldn't put this down. Karl Lawson has his own wife and family, nearby lives his brother a [...]

      Before I begin my review, readers may be interested to ascertain that this book is on my 2017 favourites shelf on GoodReads. My journey with this breathlessly captivating psychological thriller had indeed left me withh literaly not a single moment of boredom to spare. There's something about this book that made me feel connected right from the first word after 'prologue'. I enjoyed the extremely thrilling plot with its freshness and originality; it's immensely refreshing and highly satisfying to [...]

      2.5 StarsI must admit that I ultimately skimmed the entirety of this book, minus the first 6% and the last 20%. After 6%, knowing where the story was going at that point, knowing the other shoe has dropped, but having to wait for the characters to catch up, was just boring to me. I wasn’t invested, and just found everyone to be acting stupid, including the police. At that point, I started skimming through the next 74% to finally get to the point of the book where we get to see Amanda get her c [...]

      Goodness gracious me, this is one dark read!I requested this book on Netgalley because of the cover. It was the pretty pink balloon that did it. Never mind reading the description so I didn’t actually know what this book was about. Except someone made a terrible mistake that could ruin their family. Thank you tagline. And so I was pleasantly surprised.When thirteen year old Constance goes missing, reporter Amanda Bowe zeroes in on Constance’s uncle Karl and absolutely vilifies him in her art [...]

      All of my reviews can be found on novelgossipGuilty was a bit different than I had anticipated, it was divided into five separate parts and the first one was very frantic as it focused on the disappearance of a teenaged girl. Her case is resolved during this section, then part two details the aftermath. It mainly follows Karl, Constance’s uncle who was the prime suspect when she went missing and the media storm created by a local reporter named Amanda. Then parts three through five fast forwar [...]

    9. Kyle Robertson

      This tense psychological thriller grips you tight from the prologue and adds layers of tension with each page you turn. The overall mood of the book is dark, and it touches on taboo subject matter. Laura Elliot has skillfully crafted an excellent novel. Her writing style keeps you flipping pages at a frantic pace. The plot of part one revolves around the disappearance of a 13 year old girl, Constance, and her uncle, Karl. The initial investigation is marred by a personal attack and smear campaig [...]

    10. Dee Ryan

      This book a raw, edge of the seat page turner. The story is told in four parts, all of which lead into each other beautifully. Part one focuses on Constance Lawson, age 13 she has a fight with her parents and sneaks out that night to take part in a "challenge" set by "The Fearless". She is never seem alive again. Her uncle Karl, with whom she is very close becomes the focus of the media attention and through that becomes the centre of the investigation after Constance's body is found. Part two c [...]

They were very close and she even confided in him about the secret group she was in but made him promise not to tell anyone.Enters Amanda Bowe.

      I am a big fan of psychological thrillers, and can get on with most, whatever the plot. However, 'Guilty' fell short for me for a number of reasons.The book is told in four parts, concerning the mystery of a missing school girl. The first part of the book set the scene for missing Constance, planting lots of questions in the reader's mind. The book us fairly fast-paced at this point, leaving you eager to read on to uncover the answers to Constance's disappearance. I am more used to major plot tw [...]

    13. Shalini

      This book brings home the adage – Loose lips sink ships It takes a second and few written words to destroy a man’s reputation and years to rebuild it, but the scars of the pain undergone are felt forever. Words are that powerful, this simple fact is brought home by Laura Elliot in this book. Amanda bowe, the journalist and Karl Lawson, the alleged suspect are the two main protagonists. When Karl’s niece, Constance Lawson, disappears one night, few words of implied guilt written by Amanda a [...]

    14. Sarah MacIntyre

      This was a stunner of a story! I loved it! Starting with a missing child it then takes you into the dark side of journalism, corruption, adultery, broken families and the ultimate revenge. A breathtaking ending. Highly recommended. Read it!

    15. Marie Clifton

      This was my kind of book i just couldn't leave it alone it was fab.Told in four parts it flows beautifully, the first part begins with a row between Karl Lawson's beloved thirteen year old niece going missing,then goes on to show how reporter Amanda Bowe who has a grudge against Karl uses the media to stir up suspicions about his relationship with missing girl Constance.Everything begins to fall apart for Karl as Amanda Bowe seems to have front page news about him every day news that can only ha [...]

    17. Fiona Wilson

      I have read a few of this author's previous books and enjoyed them. As a fan of psychological thrillers I was looking forward to reading this, and it didn't disappoint. However I'm not totally sure about the thriller part of it as it came across as something else to me.The initial part of the story involves a missing girl, Constance, and the hunt to find her. During the investigation journalist Amanda Bowe becomes increasingly involved in finding out what happened to the young girl. She starts t [...]

    18. BookwormCatLady

      I was really surprised to discover this ISN'T a debut for that was the impression I got throughout. I've read many debuts in my quest to find new & exciting authors to add to my ever-growing TBR list and Guilty had that debut vibe.An awful lot going on yet at the same time not much happeningCharacter development was sorely lackingIt was over before it begun. Quite literally at 35%!! Weird.For me, this was far from being a psychological thriller and I was really disappointed.Thanks to Bookout [...]

      🌟🌟🌟1/2 Satisfying starsReviewed By Beckie Bookworm. beckiebookworm/So Guilty was the first book I have read by Laura Elliot, I enjoyed it but found the first half of the book much more compelling than the second.If I could, I would rate the first fifty percent a solid four and the last half a three as I can't do this and to be fair I have settled on a three and a half rating for the whole experience.So what is guilty about?Well when Constance Lawson goes missing, it sends everyone into [...]

      This is a brilliant read. I’ll definitely have to go and read her previous books if they are even half as good as this one. Thirteen year old Constance Lawson sneaks out one night and disappears. Her uncle Karl is accused of the murder of his niece. Amanda Bowe has a grudge against Karl, so much so that she starts a media campaign against him. Karl is on his own when even his family don’t believe his innocence. A fantastic read that had me gripped from start to finish. I’m looking forward [...]

      Finished reading: June 10th 2017"Does she not realise the past never goes away? It can swing a fist and knock us out with one blow."*** A copy of this book was kindly provided to me by Netgalley and Bookouture in exchange for an honest review. Thank you! ***(view spoiler)[I admit I was sold as soon as I saw the cover and read the blurb. What was the terrible mistake mentioned and how could this destroy a family?

    23. OutlawPoet

      I'm of two minds on this book.You see, I loved the first part of the book. Oh, I read it at a feverish pace, feeling absolutely sick for our characters and completely loathing one in particular. Had the book stayed with these characters in this time (and this point of view), I likely would be giving this five stars right now.But I hated, part two. In it, we completely change our focus and characters seem to flip personalities. It makes sense and I could see what the author was doing and why, but [...]

    24. JoAnn

      I received an arc via Netgalley and this is my unbiased review Guilt is a very well written psychological thriller. The plot has many twists and turns to keep the reader guessing. Could not put this book down, it is one of those edge of your seat type of books. If you love suspense I recommend this book

      Thank you to netgally for receiving a copy of Guilty by Laura Elliot in exchange for an honest review.Guilty is a mesmerizing psychological thriller that is driven by revenge, and will leave you completely fulfilled with a flawless ending. Guilty is the first novel I have read by Laura Elliot and it will NOT be my last. I found Guilty to be impossible to put down, the characters are intoxicating, and the story compulsively addicting.

    27. Renita D'Silva

      Wow! What a book! A spectacular, thrilling page-turner of a tale! Loved it from start to finish! It was so addictive that I had to discipline myself to stay away and do some work instead. So tense and fast paced and heartbreaking and heart pounding. The characters took over my head and even now I keep thinking about them and getting distracted wondering what I would have done in their situation. This story was so unpredictable - I thought it would go a certain way and it didn't at all. I LOVE th [...]

Karl suddenly finds himself in the middle of the investigation as prime suspect. Crime reported Amanda Bowe has her own axe to g [...]

      I am starting to like diving into books completely blind. Not reading blurbs helps to keep an open mind on the story you start. It's not always possible, but here I jumped on the offer to take part in the blog tour at the last minute, and I do not regret this decision!Of course, when I took a look at Guilty's cover, I was hooked. The colors, the balloon, the chimneys. A homey feeling contrasting with the taglines. A comforting and normal view threatened by chilling and ominous words. My favorite [...]
