Publisher's Summary

"The last person who called me 'Sweetpea' ended up dead...."
"I haven't killed anyone for three years, and I thought that when it happened again I'd feel bad. Like an alcoholic taking a sip of whisky. But no. Nothing. I had a blissful night's sleep. Didn't wake up at all. And for once, no bad dream either. This morning I feel balanced. Almost sane, for once."
Rhiannon is your average girl next door, settled with her boyfriend and little dog...but she's got a killer secret.
Although her childhood was haunted by a famous crime, Rhinannon's life is normal now that her celebrity has dwindled. By day her job as an editorial assistant is demeaning and unsatisfying. By evening she dutifully listens to her friend's plans for marriage and babies whilst secretly making a list.
A kill list.
From the man on the Lidl checkout who always mishandles her apples to the driver who cuts her off on her way to work to the people who have got it coming, Rhiannon's ready to get her revenge.
Because the girl everyone overlooks might be able to get away with murder....

Fantastic

This is an excellent book. Reminds me of dexter. Traumatic childhood event, dark humour, incomprehension of emotions etc However, this is far superior. The humour is keenly observed - I was worried by how often I agreed with tbe kill list - and the story touches your heart. While I dont normally like crudity, it just adds to tbe humour. I really loved this story and didnt even mind the cliffhanger it was left on. Cant wait for the next book!
