The Sinner @CazEngland

I’m delighted to be part of the blog tour for Caroline England’s new book, The Sinner. I’ve read a few of Caroline’s books and this is the best one yet! Here’s the blurb for you:


To the unsuspecting eye Dee Stephens has a perfect life as the vicar’s wife: a devoted marriage to her charismatic husband Reverend Vincent, an adoring congregation and a beautiful daughter.


But beneath the surface, Dee is suffocating. Vincent is in control, and he knows her every sin. Desperate, Dee escapes into a heady affair with Cal, an old schoolmate. 


But is Cal the saviour she thinks he is? What dark secrets does he harbour? And to what lengths will Vincent go to when he uncovers the truth? 

My review:

Some books take a while to get into – not so with The Sinner. I was hooked by the end of page one. I instantly connected with Caroline’s main protagonist, Dee, and was rooting for her all the way through.

I love books that take you on a journey full of twists and turns. Just when we think we know what’s going on, Caroline takes us down a completely different path, with revelation after revelation.

There are characters you hate, characters you feel sorry for and characters you’d like to sit and talk to. Caroline makes them all real for us.

An ending can sometimes fall flat after we’ve been taken on a rollercoaster ride of a journey – this is not the case with The Sinner. It’s a highly apt ending and we’re left wanting more from Caroline England.

Caroline England bio:

Caroline is the author of psychological thrillers BENEATH THE SKIN, MY HUSBAND’S LIES, BETRAY HER and TRUTH GAMES. She has also penned gothic-tinged psychological thrillers THE HOUSE OF HIDDEN SECRETS and THE HOUSE ON THE WATER’S EDGE as CE Rose. She writes multi-layered, dark and edgy ‘domestic suspense’ stories that delve into complicated relationships, secrets and the moral grey area.

Drawing on her days as a divorce and professional indemnity lawyer, she loves to create ordinary, relatable characters who get caught up in extraordinary situations, pressures, dilemmas or crime. She admits to a slight obsession with the human psyche, what goes on behind closed doors and beneath people’s façades. She also enjoys performing a literary sleight of hand in her novels and hopefully surprising her readers!

WATCHING HORSEPATS FEED THE ROSES and HANGED BY THE NECK are her dark, twisty short story collections.

Caroline’s new psychological thriller THE SINNER will be published in June 2022.
