#BlogTour #BookReview of Sticks and Stones by Jo Jakeman @mia_qs @HarvillSecker @JoJakemanWrites @DeadGoodBooks #SticksAndStones


How far would you go for revenge on your ex?

Imogen’s husband is a bad man. His ex-wife and his new mistress might have different perspectives but Imogen thinks she knows the truth. And now he’s given her an ultimatum: get out of the family home in the next fortnight or I’ll fight you for custody of our son.

In a moment of madness, Imogen does something unthinkable. Something that puts her in control. But how far will she go to protect her son and punish her husband? And what will happen when his ex and his girlfriend get tangled up in her plans?

Sticks and Stones is a deliciously twisting psychological thriller from an exciting new voice.



I really enjoyed this one, there was plenty to keep me entertaining and gripped as the plot developed and the story unravelled.

I loved the characters in the book, they were strong, well developed and I loved their interaction –  it was very well written and for me that added an extra depth to the story.  The whole story was great, it had twists and turns and a few surprises too!

I understand that this is the author’s debut – it was wickedly dark and captivating and believe me when I say that it is an excellent debut and I will definitely be looking out for more from Jo!!

4.5 stars from me for this one, rounded up to 5 stars for Amazon and Goodreads – I thoroughly enjoyed it and highly recommend it!!
