Twenty-one year old Beth is in prison. The thing she did is so bad she doesn’t deserve to ever feel good again.

But her counsellor, Erika, won’t give up on her. She asks Beth to make a list of all the good things in her life. So Beth starts to write down her story, from sharing silences with Foster Dad No. 1, to flirting in the Odeon on Orange Wednesdays, to the very first time she sniffed her baby’s head.

But at the end of her story, Beth must confront the bad thing.

What is the truth hiding behind her crime? And does anyone-even a 100% bad person-deserve a chance to be good?‘ – Goodreads.

Seven Sinful Blogs

18142483William Sutton’s Lawless and the Flowers of Sin, the second book in the Campbell Lawless series, was published on 12th June.

In honour of its publication, Titan Books asked if I would like to host a guest piece by William Sutton as a part of his Seven Deadly Sins book tour. Considering how much I LOVE Victorian crime fiction (it’s the best kind of crime, okay?), I agreed.

In his post, Sutton talks about the role of avarice in politics. Have a little read and stick around SugarQuills for my review of Lawless and the Flowers of Sin (coming soon!).
