One unsolved murder. A best friend determined to right the wrongs of the past.
On the 21st August Tabitha Rice disappeared without a trace. All the signs point to murder, but no signs point to a murderer. The easiest answer is her husband, Rick. But he protests his innocence and there is little proof he is the murderer.
Annabella knows there is more to the story than what the police are telling. Tabitha was her best friend and she vows to uncover the truth.
As Annabella delves further into the past, she uncovers sides to Tabitha that she never saw coming, and she finds herself asking the question… Was this murder? Or is there more to Tabitha Rice’s story than meets the eye?
I have read a book written by Naomi Joy before and I really enjoyed it. I read the synopsis for ‘Do Her No Harm’ and it certainly sounded like an interesting read and then some. So without further ado, I grabbed my Kindle and settled down to read. I really enjoyed reading ‘Do Her No Harm’ but more about that in a bit.
I must be honest and say that it took me a little while to get into this story. I found the jump between timelines to be a bit confusing to start with. Once I fathomed out who was who and what was happening when, I couldn’t get enough of this book. I was intrigued by the disappearance of Tabitha and I had a need to know what had really happened to her. The pages of the book turned increasingly quickly as I worked my way through the story. This was one of those books that definitely kept me guessing and I kept changing my mind as to why and how she disappeared. I soon reached the end of the story and overall I did enjoy it.
‘Do Her No Harm’ is well written. I can’t say that the story is a particularly fast paced one, it’s more your slow burn kind of read. The slow burn kind of pace works in this book’s favour as it allows the tension to build and to get to know the characters that bit better. There were more twists and turns to this story than you would find on a ‘Snakes & Ladders’ board. I thought that I had worked out how the story was going to pan out, only for Naomi to throw me a curveball and send them down another path entirely. This story certainly kept me on my toes and kept me guessing.
In short and overall, I did enjoy reading ‘Do Her No Harm’ and I would definitely recommend this book to other readers, and in particular to those who prefer a slower pace of story. I will be reading more of Naomi’s work in the future. The score on the Ginger Book Geek board is a very well deserved 4* out of 5*.
