Before I tell you more about A Woman Scorned, I simply HAVE to give a shoutout to my fellow blogger Inge @ The Belgian Reviewer for recommending me Jack Jordan’s works in the first place. I doubt I would ever have discovered this author and his books (all of which I have LOVED) without Inge’s brilliant reviews and gentle nudges to just go for it… #bookbloggers are the best!

Jack Jordan has successfully delivered this juicy, sinister gem of a novella to keep the fans ticking over ahead of his next full novel (Before Her Eyes) release in August!

Yes, the title isn’t subtle- you know you can expect revenge by a woman scorned in this story but maybe knowing what you get is that which pulls you in… A woman scorned is a beast indeed and I was prepared to grab my popcorn and witness the hell on earth with properly nurtured amusement! Sorry, ladies, and I generalize a stereotype here so don’t take it personally, but when we, women, are truly pissed off, we can be a special kind of mean! πŸ˜€ *ducks behind couch*

As we are dealing with a novella, Jordan doesn’t dawdle about delivering the first big revelation. Page 2 on my Kindle, in fact. Just boom- and the game was on! Here I have to confess!!! I feel like I underestimated the author because the direction the story actually went and the note it ended on was in actuality a Great Dane next to the Beagle puppy that I was imagining as I started this novella…

I won’t uber-analyze this story bit by bit… characters, plot, this and that. What matters the most here is that as a whole, A Woman Scorned is THE perfect story for anyone who wants to spend a thunderous couple of hours completely captured! Every element this story rides on, was perfect and purposeful and so darned deliciously dark!

Because I will tell you a little secret… this story is not just about a woman’s revenge! No… this baby hides so much more in between its covers! πŸ˜‰

  1. Thank you so much Liis for the shoutout, you’re making me blush a little now :-). I have just finished this novella myself and I have to say, he’s done it again :-). I’m still trying to gather my thoughts but, like you, I really loved it as well. There were quite a few surprises along the way! Great appetizer of a review!

  2. Perfect brief review of what sounds like a wonderful thriller! I find that short reviews are often best with thrillers. It’s so hard to explain things without giving stuff away, isn’t it? I’m glad you found a new author you loved. How many books of his have you read?

    • Yes! Short reviews sometimes do have a bigger impact and there’s only so much one can write about thrillers without giving away the whole plot, as you said! πŸ˜€
      I have read his first 2 full novels and this novella… AND I have his upcoming release grabbed of Netgalley… all of the books have been spot on brilliant! πŸ™‚
