Review: ‘Tarnished’ by Julia Crouch.


Peg’s childhood was anything but normal. Her mother died when she was young, her father left her in the care of her grandparents and her bed-ridden aunt. Peg doesn’t remember anything much before the age of ten but she happily remembers home-cooked meals, days at the beach and being smothered in love by her dear old nan, Doll.

However, now that she’s all grown-up, Peg discovers that the family have been keeping secrets from her and as she tries to find out more from her forgotten childhood, Peg’s family begins to look less how she remembered and more like something from a nightmare.

As I’ve come to expect from Julia Crouch’s novels, ‘Tarnished’ is an intelligent yarn that has you second guessing every move. The characters in this novel are believable and the locations are described vividly.

‘Tarnished’ is a fast-paced page turner that draws you in quickly and doesn’t let up. I was intrigued, scared and on the edge of my seat. I didn’t want to put this novel down.

Definitely Julia Crouch’s best novel yet.
