    4.5 STARS I have the sweats just thinking about how horrific it must be, to be wrongly accused of the most heinous act, knowing that you re completely innocent This is the situation that Jenna finds herself in Her liberty, which she took very much for granted, is gone, and whilst awaiting trial in prison, her every movement is monitored, she s told what to do and when she can do it In addition, there are prisoners who would happily hurt her if they knew what she s been accused of Her 14 y 4.5 STARS I have the sweats just thinking about how horrific it must be, to be wrongly accused of the most heinous act, knowing that you re completely innocent This is the situation that Jenna finds herself in Her liberty, which she took very much for granted, is gone, and whilst awaiting trial in prison, her every movement is monitored, she s told what to do and when she can do it In addition, there are prisoners who would happily hurt her if they knew what she s been accused of Her 14 year old stepdaughter Emma who she loved dearly , is dead brutally murdered, and Jenna s the prime suspect oh and Jenna s fianc is missing too Jenna knows she has to somehow prove her innocence, but how can she do that from the confines of a prison cell She s a dogged determined individual, who has had to overcome a difficult childhood to achieve the success she has today a successful career that she loves, a fianc who adores her, and a beautiful home into the bargain Life looked decidedly rosy until the day that Jenna arrived home early to discover the most horrific and bloody murder scene On my Life has a particularly claustrophobic feel to it, but there is an exuberant lively pace to the writing, with the protagonist involved in some difficult, if not life threatening situations whilst awaiting trial The author s descriptive powers are such that one can almost feel those prison walls closing in and the panic of incarceration is palpable In addition, this is a great whodunnit, which compels the reader ever onwards towards a thrilling climax Thank you to Netgalley and Hodder Stoughton Mulholland Books for my ARC I have given an honest unbiased review in exchange

    Sometimes you start a book and wonder if you have chosen well, you feel a bit restless at your choiceand other times within the first few sentences you KNOW you have a gem in your handsthis book was one of thoseJenna has a perfect life, a loving fianc , appreciative soon to be step daughter, wealth, great job..nothing could be better or go wrong..We meet Jenna as she is being carted off in a prison van,accused of murdering the soon to be step daughter and her fianc.oh and to boot Sometimes you start a book and wonder if you have chosen well, you feel a bit restless at your choiceand other times within the first few sentences you KNOW you have a gem in your handsthis book was one of thoseJenna has a perfect life, a loving fianc , appreciative soon to be step daughter, wealth, great job..nothing could be better or go wrong..We meet Jenna as she is being carted off in a prison van,accused of murdering the soon to be step daughter and her fianc.oh and to boot for having child porn on her laptop.she is soon shut in the van cell, fearful, bullied by a guard and covered in her own vomit.Then her problems really begin This incredibly well written tale then charts her time in prison, it is real, harrowing and so well researched and you really feel the terror and fear and helplessness of it allBut this is no ordinary prison story, far from it, the story goes back and forth from her happy life to this horrendous life she finds herself in where no one believes her and the other prisoners find out she is a child killer and nonceIf this is all not stressful enough she then finds out she is pregnant And just as things really cannot get any worse there is then a prison riot, so well described the tension was screaming off the pages All this as she tries to prove she is innocent, alongside lecherous prison guards, violent women and rules and regulations so archaic it beggars beliefI love a surprise ok twist ending and pride myself on at least part guessing the outcome but this had me flawed.and when you are made aware of who is behind it all I guarantee you too will be open mouthedThe writing is smooth, encompassing and flawless and I loved every wordI am not sure I can put over how good this book really is, awesome read there is a fascinating authors note s at the end full of statistics non boring ones and info on prisons and prisoners and also an equally interesting acknowledgments piece 10 10 5 Stars

    I made the mistake of starting this book a couple of days before moving house Consequently I didn t want to pack, I didn t want to organise and throughout the move I had to know where this book was at all times given the thousands of books we moved this was no mean feat But, I had to know where it was so that as soon as I had a moment I d be able to grab it and just carry on reading From the very first page I was totally hooked and when not reading it I was thinking about it Jenna s story I made the mistake of starting this book a couple of days before moving house Consequently I didn t want to pack, I didn t want to organise and throughout the move I had to know where this book was at all times given the thousands of books we moved this was no mean feat But, I had to know where it was so that as soon as I had a moment I d be able to grab it and just carry on reading From the very first page I was totally hooked and when not reading it I was thinking about it Jenna s story is compelling from the very first word right until the end The author expertly guided me in so many different directions that none of my guesses were even close to the truth The prison scenes were genius and had me holding my breath onthan one occasion Thrilling, intense, fast paced and full of surprises I would give this book 10 stars if I could
