Today is my stop on the blog tour for The Cinderella Plan. Check out my review and don’t forget to enter the giveaway!
When James Salisbury, the owner of a British car manufacturer, ploughs his ‘self-drive’ car into a young family, the consequences are deadly. Will the car’s ‘black box’ reveal what really happened or will the industry, poised to launch these products to an eager public, close ranks to cover things up?
James himself faces a personal dilemma. If it is proved that he was driving the car he may go to prison. But if he is found innocent, and the autonomous car is to blame, the business he has spent most of his life building, and his dream of safer transport for all, may collapse.
Lawyers Judith Burton and Constance Lamb team up once again, this time to defend a man who may not want to go free, in a case that asks difficult questions about the speed at which technology is taking over our lives.

The Cinderella Plan is utterly captivating. The first chapter literally drags you into a worst case scenario of a car accident. I could feel the horror and honestly, it gave me a little anxiety – which is not a criticism of this book at all. I love when a book brings up feelings. When it transports you into the story, then you know you are reading a really awesome book.
The legality of this situation is sometimes very technical which I think helped make this feel real. It felt as though I was reading about a real case. It helps that the characters are very raw. It’s clear Abi Silver did her research and was able to bring this story and characters to life. I’m really impressed!
I flew through this book! This is really thought-provoking and makes you think about the direction technology is taking us in. And it’s a little scary! This is my first read from Abi Silver and it most certainly won’t be my last. I’m really impressed and highly recommending this!
