I Want You Gone by Miranda Rijks - Blog Tour

The only obituary you never want to read – is your own.
Laura Swallow is dead. 
A life cut tragically short, says the newspaper obituary.
But that’s a lie. 
Estate agent Laura did not die in a car accident. She is alive and well.
At first, Laura thinks it’s a sick joke. 
But multiple announcements of her death are followed by increasingly sinister real-life events. Already fragile, struggling to recover from a recent divorce, Laura is plunged into a living nightmare. 
Who can she trust? Her new lover? Her clients and work colleagues? What about her ex-husband and his smug fiancĂ©e? Can Laura even rely on her best friends? And why is it that Laura’s present troubles are so tied up with her sister’s sudden death all those years ago?
But one thing Laura is sure of – someone out there wants her to suffer. Wants her gone.

My Review

I really enjoyed I Want You Gone, I couldn't stop reading and whizzed through it. 
Laura certainly has a lot of strange things happening in her life. She becomes more and more desperate to find out what is going on. Her situation finds her jumping to conclusions and suspecting different people in her life. 
I did kind of figure out who was responsible before the end, but that didn't change my enjoyment of this book. For me it was more about why than who. 
I Want You Gone kept me engrossed right the way through. It's a fast paced, page-turner of a novel and I would highly recommend it. I haven't read any of Miranda's work before, so I didn't know what to expect, I was not disappointed, she has a great style of writing that pulls you in.

Thank you to Emma from Damp Pebbles Blog Tours for sending a digital copy of this book to review honestly for the tour.
