Gripping thriller you can’t put down
“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.”
C.J. Skuse’s Sweetpea is a terrifying and gripping thriller – with a few laugh-out-loud moments just to jazz things up. Rhiannon is your average girl next door with a boyfriend, a steady-but-boring job and a small dog. But she’s got a killer secret! And a list – a kill list! She’s going to get her revenge – from the driver who cuts her off to the checkout chap who bruises her apples. Honestly another “unputdownable” read so cancel your plans and indulge in a read-fest.

To go with it, we’re drinking the newly released Kleine Zalze Vineyards Selection Cabernet Sauvignon 2015…with aromas of black cherry, black plum and cigar box, this wine is rich with currant and cassis, cedar and oak. It’s elegant, full and makes for a fantastic companion to most meat dishes.
