The Woman Inside by Anna-Lou Weatherley / #Review #BooksOnTour @bookouture @annaloulondon


Detective Dan Riley #4

Daisey Garrett wakes up in a hospital bed. She remembers her boyfriend has left her for another woman but she doesn’t remember what happened to her. The night she was attacked in her own home.

Daisey shouldn’t be alive but against all odds, she’s survived an ordeal most would never recover from. And her new friend and roommate Iris will help her get back on her feet.

But Daisey’s mind is broken. She’s on edge, drinking too much and as she sits across from her cheating ex, Luke, in the beautiful home they once shared together, she can’t shake the feeling that she is being watched.

Yet tiny fragments of Daisey’s memory are starting to come back to her.

The missing pieces of that fateful summer night are beginning to surface…

The lies she told the police.

The lies Luke told her.

Iris will help her find the truth, won’t she?




OMG! I did not know what to expect when I read the title of this book, but most certainly not what I got. It was just sooo incredibly good!

I already knew that writing is so much more than just putting words on paper, but now, once again, I realise how much time authors invest in doing research in order to create even more amazing stories.

It’s true that I had some ideas in my head, but that does not bother me in the slightest. Discovering the why and how is very interesting too and seeing that what I thought was indeed correct is very satisfying.:)

Of course I wanted the culprit to be caught. Of course I wanted justice for the victims and their families, but sometimes I feel sorry for the baddie too.

In this book my heart bled for them. I know the actions are inexcusable, but nature can be very cruel too.

It was great to see Detective Dan Riley again and I am glad he has made some personal decisions as well. They were long overdue, but better late than never. 😊

I loved this book. It was like watching a flower unfurl its petals slowly but surely. 5 stars

Thank you, Anna-Lou Weatherley and Bookouture
