Publisher's Summary

"The last person who called me 'Sweetpea' ended up dead...."

"I haven't killed anyone for three years, and I thought that when it happened again I'd feel bad. Like an alcoholic taking a sip of whisky. But no. Nothing. I had a blissful night's sleep. Didn't wake up at all. And for once, no bad dream either. This morning I feel balanced. Almost sane, for once."

Rhiannon is your average girl next door, settled with her boyfriend and little dog...but she's got a killer secret.

Although her childhood was haunted by a famous crime, Rhinannon's life is normal now that her celebrity has dwindled. By day her job as an editorial assistant is demeaning and unsatisfying. By evening she dutifully listens to her friend's plans for marriage and babies whilst secretly making a list.

A kill list.

From the man on the Lidl checkout who always mishandles her apples to the driver who cuts her off on her way to work to the people who have got it coming, Rhiannon's ready to get her revenge.

Because the girl everyone overlooks might be able to get away with murder....

    "Fantastic"

    This is an excellent book. Reminds me of dexter. Traumatic childhood event, dark humour, incomprehension of emotions etc However, this is far superior. The humour is keenly observed - I was worried by how often I agreed with tbe kill list - and the story touches your heart. While I dont normally like crudity, it just adds to tbe humour. I really loved this story and didnt even mind the cliffhanger it was left on. Cant wait for the next book!

    What did you like most about Sweetpea?

    story, humour, narrator. I listen to a lot of books and most are so far fetched and or badly written. This one is a gem of a book...Everyone raved about Girl on the train (didn;t like) why did noone rave about this one?


    What did you like best about this story?

    the believability


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    so many can't choose


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    truly recommend

    "Brilliantly dark but humorous"

    Loved this book - think it's the quickest I've listened to a book. It's an anti-hero female lead and good god we are short of them! Think most of us could identify with her in our dark moments....

    What three words best describe Georgia Maguire’s performance?

    Very well read!


    Did Sweetpea inspire you to do anything?

    Make a list....


    Any additional comments?

    Laughed out loud at some of the narration. Overall I enjoyed the book and would recommend to others.... although the ending seemed to drag a bit.

    Ex book worm with lack of time, talking books are the way forward for me. Have a penchant for horror, crime, thrillers & young adult books.

    Story
    "Psycho who hides it well...and makes you chuckle"
    What did you like most about Sweetpea?

    I loved that it was rather blunt and brutal. Whilst some of the subject matter was brutal it was actually quite funny, I kept giggling out loud - maybe I'm a little bit warped too! <br/><br/>It's like that little niggly rage voice you have inside your head and ignore as its utterly ridiculous and a complete over reaction at an everyday annoyance, but she did not ignore it. <br/><br/>She acted on it fully and very brutally without an ounce of gulit.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The main character made me laugh it's rare to find such a dark subject matter humorous. <br/><br/>I'm shocked that pretty much no one had any inkling on how messed up she was. I will never think of Sylvanian Families (toys) in the same light again.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I got through this fairly quickly as it caught my attention well from the get go. The author and the narrator are a great combination. I will certainly be looking at more book's by this author now.


    Any additional comments?

    I was sad it ended so suddenly, I wanted more.....

    "I never review!"

    I always enjoy a psycopathic serial killing novel but this one made me write my first review. It is of course enjoyably disturbing in places but that comes second to the hilariousness of the girl who murders others. First book in a while i have laughed out loud at and on SO MANY occasions. Rhee is brilliantly funny! Well done author and a big shout out to the faultless narrator. Highly recommend!! 😀
