Loving wife. Caring nurse. Liar.

You trust her with your life… She has a deadly secret.

In hospital, lives begin and end every day.

The doctors and nurses work round the clock to keep their patients breathing, yet death is part of their routine.

When the police arrive in the brightly lit corridors, asking for pretty, young, Nurse Shaw, staff and patients start talking.

The say Sarah Shaw’s husband has been murdered. They’d only been married for a few short months.

The police want to know where Sarah was that night. And why the medicine went missing from the hospital a few days before.

As William Shaw’s complicated past unravels it’s clear that Sarah has secrets of her own. But as she delivers pills in paper cups with a stiff smile and shaking hands, her patients want to know, is she a killer, or is her life in danger too?

An addictive psychological thriller that will have you glued to the pages until the final shocking twist. Perfect for fans of K.L. Slater, Shari Lapena and Clare Mackintosh.

Title:   The Nurse’s Secret

Publisher:  Bookouture 
Genre:   Psychological Thriller 
Format:  Kindle ARC 
No. of Pages:   289

Sarah is a well qualified nurse and is beside herself when she can’t reach her husband on the phone, so she calls the police to check on him. She is shocked and devastated to learn that the police have found her husband William dead. Of course Sarah becomes a suspect, and the investigating officer jumps in quickly to prove her innocence while trying to find the killer. His name is Nick and he is Sarah’s ex. He doesn’t let on that he was formerly involved with Sarah because the conflict of interest would get him removed from the case. 

Nick is not he only one holding secrets in this story. Sarah has a secret as well. She is definitely hiding something. As Sarah‘s home is now a crime scene, she has nowhere to go. Fortunately, coworker and fellow nurse Kathleen opens her home to Sarah. Unfortunately, Sarah is more than uncomfortable with Kathleen’s escalating creepy behavior. This takes this murder mystery into an additional interesting direction. 

Everyone is hiding something in this exciting latest book by Liz Lawler. While the secrets are becoming exposed one by one, there is a huge twist as the story begins to draw to a close. I loved The Nurse’s Secret as it was an intriguing and compelling read. 

Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
