Henpicked’s book of the month for February 2020…

Thank you so much to everyone who has joined in the discussion about Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty.

If you haven’t shared your thoughts yet, please do join in the conversation at the bottom of the article on Disqus. What did you think of it? Would you recommend it to a friend? We know some of us haven’t finished yet but we’d still like to hear from you.

For this month we’ve chosen The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides. Thanks to Coleena for the recommendation.

Sunday Times bestseller, Richard and Judy book club pick. 

Alicia Berenson lived a seemingly perfect life until one day six years ago.

When she shot her husband in the head five times.

Since then she hasn’t spoken a single word.

It’s time to find out why.

Here are the reviews…

“Absolutely brilliant . . . I read it in a state of intense, breathless excitement.” Stephen Fry

“Masterly plotting, Hitchcockian suspense and an absolute jaw-dropper of an ending. Read this book!” Lucy Foley 

“Intelligent, imaginative and a terrific read.” The Times

“I read it in two nights and savoured every luscious word, every grim encounter, every startling twist.” David Baldacci 

“Smart, sophisticated suspense – a very fine novel by any standard.” Lee Child
