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, Rhiannon’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…

OMG!!! this book can I just say crying with laughter it was just genius
SweetPea by C.J Skuse is something all in its own category, witty, black and hilarious while also being a horrifying look into a sociopathic mind.
The thing is the way sweetpea is written you can actually imagine the thoughts pinging around in her abnormal brain and they are the wisps of things that we all think off but grit our teeth and bear.
it’s all so normal and every day and done with not one ounce of remorse and them KILL LISTS!!! priceless.
bet we have all wanted to murder the person having a ten-minute convo with the cashier in Lidl when we are running late for work.
The only difference with Rhee is she quite happily would and have a nice cuppa and biccy afterwards.
The PICSO’S loved this laughed my head off People I Can’t Shake Off
bet we all have a few of them.
Watching Rhee’s life spiral out of control was immensely fascinating, the fact that no one even noticed or suspected this angelic-faced little killer shows what little attention we pay to each other.
I was riveted to this story from the opening lines and till that final closing curtain.
An amazing piece of fiction which I loved bravo.
I received a free e-copy of sweetpea from NetGalley and this is my own honest opinion.
