Blood Orange
Blood Orange | Harriet Tyce
A young lawyer's outwardly perfect life spirals out of control as she takes on her first murder case in this dark and twisty debut thriller for readers of Paula Hawkins, A.J. Finn, or Shari Lapena. Alison has it all. A doting husband, adorable daughter, and a career on the rise--she's just been given her first murder case to defend. But all is never as it seems... Just one more night. Then I'll end it. Alison drinks too much. She's neglecting her family. And she's having an affair with a colleague whose taste for pushing boundaries may be more than she can handle. I did it. I killed him. I should be locked up. Alison's client doesn't deny that she stabbed her husband - she wants to plead guilty. And yet something about her story is deeply amiss. Saving this woman may be the first step to Alison saving herself. I'm watching you. I know what you're doing. But someone knows Alison's secrets. Someone who wants to make her pay for what she's done, and who won't stop until she's lost everything....

I really liked this. It gripped me from the start and it had some great twists. The main male characters were VILE though!

Alison really doesn't come across as a very sympathetic MC, but as the plot unfolded, I suspected some issues were manipulated behind the scenes & without saying too much, I was v. suspicious of a particular character as they seemed almost 'incel-ish' at times. It was an intriguing debut novel that deals with difficult issues.
3.5🌟

TW: There's quite a bit of sexual content mainly rough sex, & several mentions of sexual assault, & suicide.

Book 20 2021- The consensus from our whole book club was that this is a terrible read. Poorly written, tenuous story line and extremely unlikable characters. Not everyone needs to feel some sort of connection that makes them care about a character but for me it‘s a deal breaker. It felt like a poor mans girl on the train ⭐️

It‘s my little boys settling on session at preschool today and I haven‘t gone very far 😂 sitting in the carpark trying to get this book finished for book club on Friday. I‘ve got to say so far I‘m not thrilled with it... there needs to be at least one likable character for me to feel invested in a story usually and this has none!

We have started a new book club in my village and i‘m excited. This is our first book. I bought a second hand copy (because I sometimes like to underline for book clubs) but then panicked when I saw the predicted arrival date. So I put a hold i. At the library, which came in today... guess what was waiting for me when I got back from the library! 🤦🏻‍♀️

I read this book for book club and found it to be quite enjoyable. I think the first person narrative could have had fewer 'I saids' when it was perfectly obvious who was speaking. Other than that it was a pretty good story, well told. I really liked the parallel story running though it and the detail - even down to the cut on the face- but I think the end let it down bit. Worth a read. Thank you.

Blood Orange was a interesting read what I thought the main story was gone to be about turn out to be a very small part, the book was taken up by Aileens love life and her drinking problem. I only gave this book a 3 star as I did find the descriptions and language at times just too much, it took away from the story for me.

Fast-paced domestic violence psychological thriller disturbingly hard to put down because you need to know what is happening. The main character is a terrible person and mother. The book is intriguing and builds from the beginning to the end. Many twists keep you guessing. End is surprising. Explicit sex is overdone & not necessary. Writing so-so. Very good plot. Powerful & thought-provoking read. Enjoy reading with postal book club. Recommended.

I thought this book had a gripping story line. I liked it because it was dark and the main character was allowed to be flawed in the way that men in high-powered, stressful jobs often are, but the hypocrisy of judgment for her being a woman was well drawn up.

I got through the first 3/4 of this book very quickly but then I lost interest. I feel like I didn‘t really know any of the characters apart from Allison so wasn‘t that invested in what happened.

Hazel2019 @EadieB @eh2018 @Victoriahoperose so looks like my other LMPBC group is sending like a little bookish item or 2 along with the book - what are we planning on doing? Add something or book only (either way is good with me, just wanted to ask) 4y
EadieB @Hazel2019 Doesn‘t matter to me. I usually just send the book when I mail books to people because I‘m not really going out shopping at this time. I do have lots of bookmarks and could share some of those but whatever others want to do is fine with me. We also could check TBR lists and send an extra book because I have lots of books I could give away. 4y
Hazel2019 @EadieB you‘re probably right - I don‘t get out either in terms of shopping at this point. Any of the other ideas work or just books to make things simple 😊 @EH2018 @Victoriahoperose 4y
EadieB @Hazel2019 I think most readers would enjoy a book from their TBR list! 4y
Hazel2019 @EadieB agreed 😊 4y
Hazel2019 So just to double- check, I‘m mailing stuff to you @EadieB correct? 4y

Tyce's debut novel is not something I would normally pick up, but I fancied a change.

The story was fairly predictable, and the characters unlikable, however something kept me reading. I finished this in just a couple sittings, so I can't fault the writing style even if I didn't necessarily enjoy the story.

If you are on the fence about reading this, and it's your type of story it's probably worth a look.

I think I‘m kinda done with these sorts of thrillers for a while now. They all feel very samey and predictable. I always rattle through them, more to find out if I‘m right than because I care. They‘re about as satisfying as a rice cake!!! 🙄

3.5/5
Blood Orange is a domestic thriller with all the intrigue, build-up and twists you‘d expect from this type of book. The novel is well written and plausible with plenty to get your teeth stuck into, especially towards the end where the pace picks up. There is a fair amount of legal detail in the book and at times it did feel a little sluggish reading through these parts but they did give the storyline credibility.

Pure brilliance. On the surface Alison has everything a family money and a good career. But it‘s what lurks under that. Harriet tyce has created a very real character in Alison she is not perfect by any stretch but who is. The subject matter is powerful and shows how easy gaslighting and emotional abuse happens. There is almost three stories in one a very powerful thought provoking gritty read

Reviews say this book has unlikeable characters, disturbing qualities, so-so writing. I agree with all of this...yet I couldn‘t stop reading. I did not at all predict the turn of events so I really enjoyed the surprises it gave me. The main character is a terrible person and worse judge of character so be prepared to be put off by her and everyone else, but it definitely kept me reading, wondering where the story was going.

This book kept my interest but wow, the characters were all very unlikeable, and can a group of people really have so many things messed up in their lives? Alison is a lawyer who takes on a murder case, but when she‘s not working, she drinks too much, has an affair and is not the best mother or wife. #bloodorange #harriettyce

The book draws a dark inspiration from the death of MP Steve Milligan, and the prologue especially made you want to read on and find out what will happen. However, it did disappoint in many ways; For starters, the characters were simply not likeable, and the author expects you to understand lawyer terminology even though most people don‘t. Some later chapters had pace, though many of the other chapters were slow. Had high hopes but not the best.
