Britmums Book Club review – The Judas Scar by Amanda Jennings

This is my second review for the Britmums Book Club. This time I received a free copy of “The Judas Scar” by Amanda Jennings, including a signed postcard.

The Judas Scar

This is what it says inside the front cover.
Scars. We all carry them. Some are mere scratches. Others run deeper.

At a school rife with bullying, Will and his best friend Luke are involved in a horrific incident that results in Luke leaving.

Twenty-five years later their paths cross again and memories of Will’s painful childhood come flooding back to haunt him. His wife, Harmony, who is struggling after a miscarriage that has hit her hard, wishes Will would open up about his experiences. But while Will withdraws further, she finds herself drawn to the charismatic stranger from her husband s past, and soon all three are caught in a tangled web of guilt, desire, betrayal and revenge…

This story was so gripping that I read it in less than a week, which is unheard of for me. It is a thriller and I couldn’t put it down. I won’t say much as I don’t want to spoil it for those who haven’t read it yet. It revolves round the three main characters, Will, Harmony and Luke. And bloggers will appreciate this bit, it even features social media, with Will looking up the school bully on Facebook and sending a “friend request” although they had never been friends.

The Judas Scar” is Amanda Jennings second book and I’m certainly adding her first book “Sworn Secret” to my reading wishlist. I thoroughly recommend “The Judas Scar“.

    I am a huge thriller fan. I haven’t read this one but it looks fascinating. I’m also into really creepy horrors and psychological books.

      Yes I finished it a few weeks before getting round to writing the review. It was the linky going up that prompted me to get it done
