Some Days Are Dark by Miranda Smith / #Review #BooksOnTour @bookouture



When you have nothing to lose, how far will you go to save yourself?

Everyone in Whitaker was sure Olivia Miller shot her husband, until Marcus Rowe confessed. But a month before the trial, Marcus has been proved innocent—putting Olivia back in the frame.

Olivia is the first to admit she isn’t perfect. She’s made a lot of mistakes in her life, the worst of which was marrying Dane Miller. She fell for his kind eyes, his lack of judgement—she thought she could be free with him. That was before the chaotic parties, the dangerous friends, the lies… But one bad choice shouldn’t mean a life sentence. Now her friends are turning away from her, gossiping about her wherever she goes, wondering when she’ll be arrested this time.

Olivia isn’t going to run from the stares, from the whispers, from the doubts. She won’t leave her beloved son behind, or give her ex-husband Frank and his new wife any excuse to stop her seeing him. And if the police and the world think she’s guilty, there’s only one thing she can do—prove her innocence herself.

But if Marcus didn’t murder her husband, then the real killer is still out there.

And they’re not going to want Olivia stirring up the past…




First of all I want to say that I think this is a great cover and when I like the cover, I always seem to like the story as well. Is this true this time too… ?

It sure was. The whole time I was wondering whether Olivia was a born actor or a victim. I wanted to believe her, but I was never really sure. The author kept me guessing, made my brain do overtime and urged me to read on.

The focus is on the murder, but we get to see what happened before and what happens afterwards to give us a clear picture of the whole scene.

A house can be a happy home or just a place where you survive and sometimes it can change very quickly from one to the other. 

It’s nice to have some peole you can trust and always lean on. They are always there to have your back and would never betray you. They only want what is best for you and would never lie to you. Without them you would be lost. With them by your side, you can conquer the world … or are they too good to be true … ?

A great story that keeps you entertained from the first sentence until the last one. More of this, please. 🙂 4,5 stars

Thank you, Miranda Smith and Bookouture.
