My review of The Mistake by K.L. Slater

Today I am delighted to be taking part in the blog blitz for K.L. Slater’s new release – The Mistake!!


You think you know the truth about the people you love.  But one discovery can change everything…

Eight-year-old Billy goes missing one day, out flying his kite with his sister Rose. Two days later, he is found dead.   Sixteen years on, Rose still blames herself for Billy’s death. How could she have failed to protect her little brother?

Rose has never fully recovered from the trauma, and one of the few people she trusts is her neighbour Ronnie, who she has known all her life. But one day Ronnie falls ill, and Rose goes next door to help him… and what she finds in his attic room turns her world upside down.

Rose thought she knew the truth about what happened to Billy. She thought she knew her neighbour. Now the only thing she knows is that she is in danger…


I have loved all of the books I have read to date by this author so I was starting out with very high expectations and boy she met them alright!! I am a massive fan of her writing style and it was perfect again with this new release.

I loved this book, I loved the pace, the characters were brilliant and the story was superb – she is definitely one of my favourite writers for books of this genre and I do love a good psychological thriller!!  Plenty of twists and turns and a few surprises, I was GRIPPED until the end and read it in a few hours – I really did not want to put it down at all!!

Really cannot recommend the book highly enough – no hesitation in giving it 5 stars and looking forward already to the next one!!!
