    Everyone wants what Alison has. A successful job as a defense attorney, a loving husband, and a precious daughter. She?s recently been assigned her first murder case. That?s all on the surface though. The truth is Alison abuses alcohol and doesn?t spend enough time with her f...

    Actual rating 4.5/5 stars. When I found out I had won a Twitter giveaway from this author's publicist I was thrilled! I have read a lot of thrillers and crime novels, in my time, despite them not being my favourite genre. For me, they provide a lighter source of relief, than my favo...

    Wow!! I absolutely LOVED this book! I did NOT want to put this down. Alison is as flawed a character as you can probably get. Successful lawyer with a husband and daughter at home - yet in an illicit affair with a man she can't stop thinking about. Her first murder case that has he...

    So TheakstonsCrime read 2 is complete. Blood Orange is a pacy, clever and emotional psychological thriller with added legal and family drama. Immediately compelling with a strongly divisive main protagonist you can absolutely relate to, I simply did not want to put this one down. S...

    Alison is a successful criminal law barrister who seems hell-bent on pressing that self-destruct button. Outwardly she has a home life to envy with an adorable young daughter, a husband who takes care of the house and childcare whilst she works and she has just been given her first mur...

    Aaaaahhhhhhhhhh I don?t know how to write this review so it will make sense. There were so many things about this book that I really didn?t enjoy and yet so many things about this book that I was utterly gripped by and couldn?t actually turn the pages fast enough. So, I shall try...

    All aboard the Alison HOT MESS EXPRESS! From the beginning, Alison clearly doesn?t have her crap together. She?s a sloppy drunk, adulteress and avoidant of all family/life responsibilities. I wanted to shake or slap some sense into her and tell her ?actions have consequences!...

    I made it a third of the way though this book and gave up. Alison is a criminal lawyer who seems to spend most of her time drinking excessively and having an affair with a colleague, rather than going home to her husband and 6 year old daughter. If you want to read about her having sex...

    I just don't get it. Don't get this one at all. Alison, the protagonist is supposedly a smart barrister in London. Yet, she allows herself to be abused by her husband who calls her "skanky" and criticizes almost everything she does, including her cooking. And, just when one could sym...

    Great book by a debut author! I had a hard time putting it down. It all seemed so cut and dried at the beginning (Carl was the nice cuckolded husband and Alison was awful for cheating on him.) I was in for a lot of twists. What I really enjoyed about this book was there was more than o...

    ????? 2.5 stars (rounded up to 3) Blood Orange left me feeling...not much at all. It might be because of the narrative, which is propelled by a protagonist who is the embodiment of a train-wreck, or it might be because of Tyce attempting to gross readers out trough lazily ...

    Married to Carl and mother to six year-old Matilda, criminal defense barrister Alison, excessively drinks, is a hardened workaholic, engages in rough sex too frequently with a fellow colleague and struggles daily to just keep her head above water. As her world continually comes crashin...

    3 ? I predicted some parts towards the ending. Just ok. ...

    A very solid debut novel with a compelling plot that keeps you turning the pages. As with many thrillers the characters are not very likeable and I did foresee some of the twists but it was still a really good read. ...

    Not one for me. I didn't get this book at all, sorry! Hateful characters (but that's the point given the story I know) but I guess I'm just tired of stories where one of the characters drinks to oblivion and then wonders why life's not turning out that well. I should have read the ...

    I received an ARC of this at Bouchercon. I?m normally a romance reader (and writer), but I enjoy a good thriller. This exceeded expectations and I read it over a 24-hour period. It was edgy, tense and feminist AF. A perfect read for the #metoo era. Outstanding. ...

    I found this to be a book that stays with you for days after you finish reading it! The main character - Alison - is one of those women who on paper has it all! Highly intelligent and working as a lawyer and married with a young daughter BUT still seemingly on a mission to self destruc...

    Very well written, with a terrific twist at the end. Alison, and up and coming barrister, is a hard drinker as well as a workaholic. Now, this last characteristic didn't bother me as much as it apparently bothered other readers and reviewers: lawyers have to work very long hours in ord...

    I?ve taken a semi-serious vow not to read any more psychological thrillers that have the word ?girl? or ?woman? in the title because I?m sick of reading about female protagonists who stumble through life in a drunken stupor, heaping bad decisions on top of more bad decision...

    I received a paperback ARC of this from ThrillerFest in July. It's an absorbing read and I had trouble putting it down. A great setting of London. Clean, crisp prose. Dark story line. Note, if you prefer noble characters who make good choices, then this probably isn't the book for ...

    From the intriguing prologue to the shocking (and I probably shouldn't admit, satisfying end) I loved this. The blurb outlines the basic story, but who is it exactly who is talking to us? This is a twisted tale of ambition, misguided passion, and control. But it's also about much more,...

    When I began reading this, there were a few times when I almost closed the book, thinking: I'm done. I just can't. You see, our main character really bothered me. She's a woman who thinks she's a tough lawyer when in reality, she's weak, she allows herself to be used time and again,...

    All aboard the Alison HOT MESS EXPRESS! From the beginning, Alison clearly doesn?t have her crap together. She?s a sloppy drunk, adulteress and avoidant of all family/life responsibilities. I wanted to shake or slap some sense into her and tell her ?actions have consequences!...

    I made it a third of the way though this book and gave up. Alison is a criminal lawyer who seems to spend most of her time drinking excessively and having an affair with a colleague, rather than going home to her husband and 6 year old daughter. If you want to read about her having sex...

    I just don't get it. Don't get this one at all. Alison, the protagonist is supposedly a smart barrister in London. Yet, she allows herself to be abused by her husband who calls her "skanky" and criticizes almost everything she does, including her cooking. And, just when one could sym...

    Great book by a debut author! I had a hard time putting it down. It all seemed so cut and dried at the beginning (Carl was the nice cuckolded husband and Alison was awful for cheating on him.) I was in for a lot of twists. What I really enjoyed about this book was there was more than o...

    Actual rating 4.5/5 stars. When I found out I had won a Twitter giveaway from this author's publicist I was thrilled! I have read a lot of thrillers and crime novels, in my time, despite them not being my favourite genre. For me, they provide a lighter source of relief, than my favo...

    Wow!! I absolutely LOVED this book! I did NOT want to put this down. Alison is as flawed a character as you can probably get. Successful lawyer with a husband and daughter at home - yet in an illicit affair with a man she can't stop thinking about. Her first murder case that has he...

    So TheakstonsCrime read 2 is complete. Blood Orange is a pacy, clever and emotional psychological thriller with added legal and family drama. Immediately compelling with a strongly divisive main protagonist you can absolutely relate to, I simply did not want to put this one down. S...

    Very well written, with a terrific twist at the end. Alison, and up and coming barrister, is a hard drinker as well as a workaholic. Now, this last characteristic didn't bother me as much as it apparently bothered other readers and reviewers: lawyers have to work very long hours in ord...

    I received a paperback ARC of this from ThrillerFest in July. It's an absorbing read and I had trouble putting it down. A great setting of London. Clean, crisp prose. Dark story line. Note, if you prefer noble characters who make good choices, then this probably isn't the book for ...

    From the intriguing prologue to the shocking (and I probably shouldn't admit, satisfying end) I loved this. The blurb outlines the basic story, but who is it exactly who is talking to us? This is a twisted tale of ambition, misguided passion, and control. But it's also about much more,...

    All aboard the Alison HOT MESS EXPRESS! From the beginning, Alison clearly doesn?t have her crap together. She?s a sloppy drunk, adulteress and avoidant of all family/life responsibilities. I wanted to shake or slap some sense into her and tell her ?actions have consequences!...

    I made it a third of the way though this book and gave up. Alison is a criminal lawyer who seems to spend most of her time drinking excessively and having an affair with a colleague, rather than going home to her husband and 6 year old daughter. If you want to read about her having sex...

    I just don't get it. Don't get this one at all. Alison, the protagonist is supposedly a smart barrister in London. Yet, she allows herself to be abused by her husband who calls her "skanky" and criticizes almost everything she does, including her cooking. And, just when one could sym...

    Great book by a debut author! I had a hard time putting it down. It all seemed so cut and dried at the beginning (Carl was the nice cuckolded husband and Alison was awful for cheating on him.) I was in for a lot of twists. What I really enjoyed about this book was there was more than o...

    ????? 2.5 stars (rounded up to 3) Blood Orange left me feeling...not much at all. It might be because of the narrative, which is propelled by a protagonist who is the embodiment of a train-wreck, or it might be because of Tyce attempting to gross readers out trough lazily ...

    A very solid debut novel with a compelling plot that keeps you turning the pages. As with many thrillers the characters are not very likeable and I did foresee some of the twists but it was still a really good read. ...

    Not one for me. I didn't get this book at all, sorry! Hateful characters (but that's the point given the story I know) but I guess I'm just tired of stories where one of the characters drinks to oblivion and then wonders why life's not turning out that well. I should have read the ...

    I received an ARC of this at Bouchercon. I?m normally a romance reader (and writer), but I enjoy a good thriller. This exceeded expectations and I read it over a 24-hour period. It was edgy, tense and feminist AF. A perfect read for the #metoo era. Outstanding. ...

    I found this to be a book that stays with you for days after you finish reading it! The main character - Alison - is one of those women who on paper has it all! Highly intelligent and working as a lawyer and married with a young daughter BUT still seemingly on a mission to self destruc...

    Very well written, with a terrific twist at the end. Alison, and up and coming barrister, is a hard drinker as well as a workaholic. Now, this last characteristic didn't bother me as much as it apparently bothered other readers and reviewers: lawyers have to work very long hours in ord...

    I?ve taken a semi-serious vow not to read any more psychological thrillers that have the word ?girl? or ?woman? in the title because I?m sick of reading about female protagonists who stumble through life in a drunken stupor, heaping bad decisions on top of more bad decision...

    Review to follow ...

    I received a paperback ARC of this from ThrillerFest in July. It's an absorbing read and I had trouble putting it down. A great setting of London. Clean, crisp prose. Dark story line. Note, if you prefer noble characters who make good choices, then this probably isn't the book for ...

    From the intriguing prologue to the shocking (and I probably shouldn't admit, satisfying end) I loved this. The blurb outlines the basic story, but who is it exactly who is talking to us? This is a twisted tale of ambition, misguided passion, and control. But it's also about much more,...

    When I began reading this, there were a few times when I almost closed the book, thinking: I'm done. I just can't. You see, our main character really bothered me. She's a woman who thinks she's a tough lawyer when in reality, she's weak, she allows herself to be used time and again,...

    http://jessjustreads.com Blood Orange by Harriet Tyce is a debut thriller novel about murder, sex and family, and one woman?s messy life ? personally and professionally. After working for 15 years, British barrister Alison Wood has just been assigned her first murder case. M...

    Woah! I heard Harriet Tyce at an author event two days ago, thought 'Blood Orange' sounded interesting so pre-ordered the audio book as it was due out the next day and I was delighted to hear it was narrated by Julie Teal, who read 'The New Mrs Clifton' so brilliantly, and here we are ...

    Wow... Just wow. I wanted an ARC of this so bad, and didn't get one, so I had high expectations for this book, and it did not disappoint. Protagonist Alison is a barrister handling cases in London. She's got a daughter and a wishy-washy marriage with husband Carl - and Patrick, a boyfr...

    Blood Orange is a novel I?ve seen about since I went to the Harrogate crime festival last year and I had the opportunity to go to Headline New Voices last month and got my hands on a proof copy, I can?t tell you how excited I was! Blood Orange is classed as a domestic noir, whic...

    Alison has the seemingly perfect life, but appearances can be deceiving. Oh my goodness. What a debut from Harriet Tyce. If I?m honest, I was expecting a competent and interesting read. I hadn?t quite anticipated such a fast paced, intricate and pulse elevating experience. I fel...

    There?s something extremely unsettling about Harriet Tyce?s Blood Orange ? unsettling, unnerving, compelling. ? Focusing on London lawyer Alison, her marriage, her affair and the high-profile murder trial she?s involved in, it?s a difficult novel ? well-written, well-pace...

    Alison is a successful criminal law barrister who seems hell-bent on pressing that self-destruct button. Outwardly she has a home life to envy with an adorable young daughter, a husband who takes care of the house and childcare whilst she works and she has just been given her first mur...

    Aaaaahhhhhhhhhh I don?t know how to write this review so it will make sense. There were so many things about this book that I really didn?t enjoy and yet so many things about this book that I was utterly gripped by and couldn?t actually turn the pages fast enough. So, I shall try...

    All aboard the Alison HOT MESS EXPRESS! From the beginning, Alison clearly doesn?t have her crap together. She?s a sloppy drunk, adulteress and avoidant of all family/life responsibilities. I wanted to shake or slap some sense into her and tell her ?actions have consequences!...

    I made it a third of the way though this book and gave up. Alison is a criminal lawyer who seems to spend most of her time drinking excessively and having an affair with a colleague, rather than going home to her husband and 6 year old daughter. If you want to read about her having sex...

    I just don't get it. Don't get this one at all. Alison, the protagonist is supposedly a smart barrister in London. Yet, she allows herself to be abused by her husband who calls her "skanky" and criticizes almost everything she does, including her cooking. And, just when one could sym...

    Great book by a debut author! I had a hard time putting it down. It all seemed so cut and dried at the beginning (Carl was the nice cuckolded husband and Alison was awful for cheating on him.) I was in for a lot of twists. What I really enjoyed about this book was there was more than o...

    ????? 2.5 stars (rounded up to 3) Blood Orange left me feeling...not much at all. It might be because of the narrative, which is propelled by a protagonist who is the embodiment of a train-wreck, or it might be because of Tyce attempting to gross readers out trough lazily ...

    Married to Carl and mother to six year-old Matilda, criminal defense barrister Alison, excessively drinks, is a hardened workaholic, engages in rough sex too frequently with a fellow colleague and struggles daily to just keep her head above water. As her world continually comes crashin...

    3 ? I predicted some parts towards the ending. Just ok. ...

    A very solid debut novel with a compelling plot that keeps you turning the pages. As with many thrillers the characters are not very likeable and I did foresee some of the twists but it was still a really good read. ...

    Not one for me. I didn't get this book at all, sorry! Hateful characters (but that's the point given the story I know) but I guess I'm just tired of stories where one of the characters drinks to oblivion and then wonders why life's not turning out that well. I should have read the ...

    I received an ARC of this at Bouchercon. I?m normally a romance reader (and writer), but I enjoy a good thriller. This exceeded expectations and I read it over a 24-hour period. It was edgy, tense and feminist AF. A perfect read for the #metoo era. Outstanding. ...

    I found this to be a book that stays with you for days after you finish reading it! The main character - Alison - is one of those women who on paper has it all! Highly intelligent and working as a lawyer and married with a young daughter BUT still seemingly on a mission to self destruc...

    Very well written, with a terrific twist at the end. Alison, and up and coming barrister, is a hard drinker as well as a workaholic. Now, this last characteristic didn't bother me as much as it apparently bothered other readers and reviewers: lawyers have to work very long hours in ord...

    I?ve taken a semi-serious vow not to read any more psychological thrillers that have the word ?girl? or ?woman? in the title because I?m sick of reading about female protagonists who stumble through life in a drunken stupor, heaping bad decisions on top of more bad decision...

    I received a paperback ARC of this from ThrillerFest in July. It's an absorbing read and I had trouble putting it down. A great setting of London. Clean, crisp prose. Dark story line. Note, if you prefer noble characters who make good choices, then this probably isn't the book for ...

    From the intriguing prologue to the shocking (and I probably shouldn't admit, satisfying end) I loved this. The blurb outlines the basic story, but who is it exactly who is talking to us? This is a twisted tale of ambition, misguided passion, and control. But it's also about much more,...

    When I began reading this, there were a few times when I almost closed the book, thinking: I'm done. I just can't. You see, our main character really bothered me. She's a woman who thinks she's a tough lawyer when in reality, she's weak, she allows herself to be used time and again,...

    http://jessjustreads.com Blood Orange by Harriet Tyce is a debut thriller novel about murder, sex and family, and one woman?s messy life ? personally and professionally. After working for 15 years, British barrister Alison Wood has just been assigned her first murder case. M...

    Woah! I heard Harriet Tyce at an author event two days ago, thought 'Blood Orange' sounded interesting so pre-ordered the audio book as it was due out the next day and I was delighted to hear it was narrated by Julie Teal, who read 'The New Mrs Clifton' so brilliantly, and here we are ...

    Wow... Just wow. I wanted an ARC of this so bad, and didn't get one, so I had high expectations for this book, and it did not disappoint. Protagonist Alison is a barrister handling cases in London. She's got a daughter and a wishy-washy marriage with husband Carl - and Patrick, a boyfr...

    Blood Orange is a novel I?ve seen about since I went to the Harrogate crime festival last year and I had the opportunity to go to Headline New Voices last month and got my hands on a proof copy, I can?t tell you how excited I was! Blood Orange is classed as a domestic noir, whic...

    Alison has the seemingly perfect life, but appearances can be deceiving. Oh my goodness. What a debut from Harriet Tyce. If I?m honest, I was expecting a competent and interesting read. I hadn?t quite anticipated such a fast paced, intricate and pulse elevating experience. I fel...

    Actual rating 4.5/5 stars. When I found out I had won a Twitter giveaway from this author's publicist I was thrilled! I have read a lot of thrillers and crime novels, in my time, despite them not being my favourite genre. For me, they provide a lighter source of relief, than my favo...
