Do you listen to your mother? Even after she’s dead?
Anna Hardaker is following you …
This seemingly innocent Tweet fills Jamie Hardaker with confusion and fear. After all, his mother Anna has been dead for nearly three weeks.
What follows is an orchestrated Twitter campaign to lead those Anna loved, and didn’t love so much, to the truth behind her “accidental” death.
The Last Cuckoo is an intriguing mystery/thriller that also centers around family. I found this a really unique read that drew me in from beginning to end.
Written in the first person, I felt as though it was easy to connect with Jaime. I am one of the few I know who thoroughly enjoy first person POV if done well. I think it’s a beautiful thing to get inside the character’s head. It also allows the author to shine because it takes a lot of talent to not only get a reader to care about the characters but also be entertained by the plot.
I really loved the mystery of this novel. I was surprised and I loved being taken on the journey of twists and turns. I really loved being able to get attached to the characters and be drawn in by the mystery suspense.
Check this out!

Maria Frankland‘s life began at 40 when she escaped an unhappy marriage and began making a living from her own writing and becoming a teacher of creative writing.
The rich tapestry of life with all its turbulent times has enabled her to pour experience, angst and lessons learned into the writing of her novels and poetry.
She recognises that the darkest places can exist within family relationships and this is reflected in the domestic thrillers she writes.
She is a ‘born ‘n’ bred’ Yorkshirewoman, a mother of two and has recently found her own ‘happy ever after’ after marrying again.
Still in her forties, she is now going to dedicate the rest of her working life to writing books and inspiring other writers to also achieve their dreams too!
