In Bloom Summary


In Bloom by C.J. Skuse

Shortlisted for the CrimeFest Last Laugh Award 2018

`Makes Hannibal Lecter look like Mary Poppins... this is going to give me a serious book hangover'

John Marrs, author of The One

If only they knew the real truth. It should be my face on those front pages. My headlines. I did those things, not him. I just want to stand on that doorstep and scream it: IT WAS ME. ME. ME. ME. ME!

Rhiannon Lewis has successfully fooled the world and framed her cheating fiance Craig for the depraved and bloody killing spree she committed. She should be ecstatic that she's free.

Except for one small problem. She's pregnant with her ex lover's child. The ex-lover she only recently chopped up and buried in her in-laws garden. And as much as Rhiannon wants to continue making her way through her kill lists, a small voice inside is trying to make her stop.

But can a killer's urges ever really be curbed?

Amazon reviewers love In Bloom:

`Dark, twisted, hysterical and heart breaking all in one. Outstanding.'

`Sick, twisted and disturbing, and so deliciously, darkly funny!'

`Brilliant characters, spot-on dialogue and a great plot. I just can't fault it.'

In Bloom Reviews


`An absolute marvel of a book - SO dark, SO laugh-out-loud funny, the world through Rhiannon's eyes is perfectly, acutely observed. Brilliant!' SJI Holliday

`This darkly comic novel...has the potential to become a cult classic.' Daily Mail

`Sweetpea hits all the right buttons. A dark, twisted read about a female serial killer with dollops of humour, sarcasm and a lightweight approach...keeping you gripped and on the hook, both smiling and squirming.' Maxim Jakubowski, Lovereading

`You MUST read this book especially if you like your (anti) heroes dirty-mouthed, deadly and dark, dark dark. ADORED IT' Fiona Cummins, author of Rattle

`This isn't a book for the squeamish or the faint-hearted ... think Bridget Jones meets American Psycho' Red

`This book is OUTRAGEOUS' Compulsive Readers

`This anti-hero is psychotic without doubt, sexually voracious and incredibly funny.', Shots magazine
