Book Review – A Year in the Life of Leah Brand

A Year in the Life of Leah Brand by Lucinda E. Clarke

A Year in the Life of Leah Brand: A Psychological Thriller by Lucinda E. Clarke

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


There’s something strange going on in Leah’s house or is she going mad? Her husband of only a few years is at least trying to convince her of that. And now Leah is starting to believe it too.

This is the first book of the A Year in the Life Series by Lucinda E. Clarke. The book has twelve chapters, one for every month of the year in chronological order. This psychological story begins on New Year’s Day with the death of the family dog which sets the stage for the strange occurrences. Stranger yet is that Leah is the only one that sees or hears these events. Everyone else just thinks she’s crazy.

This novel captured my attention from the first line and held it until the end. It is fast paced and well written. The only thing I had a slight issue with was the epilogue at the end. I don’t want to give anything away, but I did find that it changed the way the story ended (in a way). I was all set to believe and accept an outcome when suddenly became something else. However, this may be because it is setting the reader up for the next book in the series. In any case it is a good book that is sure to keep you captivated, and one that I recommend.
