Blog Review Round Up


Some of the quotes. Click on the image to enlarge it

Tonight is the launch party for The Long Fall. I’m too excited to write today, so instead here’s a round up of all the lovely bloggers’ reviews so far. I have been completely knocked out by the support of the blogging community – not least because all of that work and care comes from a love of books, nothing more or less. It’s totally heartening.

Thanks, guys!

Here are links to the reviews:

“Whether you loved Gone Girl and are looking for something even better or it irritated the hell out of you and you are looking for something even better than read this you won’t be disappointed.”
The Madwoman in the Attic

“Personally I’ve found it even better than an already superb “Tarnished” and I suspect that “The Long Fall” will be one of this year’s great summer reads.”
Upcoming for Me

“Julia Crouch’s novels are notable for their sharp observation, their descriptive prose, their clever plotting and their control of pace. The Long Fallhas all these elements with a few others besides.”
Shots Mag

“Darkness, secrets and danger jump from the pages ensuring you are hooked!”
Supermum Where’s My Cape

“A masterclass in suspense and psychological turmoil.”
Crime Reader Blog

“The Long Fall is a gripping read, the perfect accompaniment for the resent sunny weather that we have been having, but you might not want to be alone whilst you’re reading…. ”
A Book Lover’s Blog

“I loved this book from start to finish.”
Webster’s World of Books

“a gripping read that had me hooked from the very first page.”
Shaz’s Book Blog

“This dark and chilling story of love, betrayal and guilt shows how one moment of violence can result in a chain reaction that continues across the decades. Highly atmospheric, with fabulously flawed and complex characters, and a super twisty plot, it’s a great read.

The Long Fall is domestic noir at its very best.”
Crime Thriller Girl

“The pages turn, the revelations come along at a brisk pace, the sense of dread grows as Kate’s world is systematically undermined. All leads up to a conclusion that brings the narrative satisfyingly full-circle.”
We Love This Book

“The Long Fall is a superior psychological thriller which kept me hooked for the couple of days it took me to read. It’s the ideal book for someone who fancies a compelling, but intelligent rather than frothy, summer read.”
Louise Reviews Books

“This is an excellent read which I give 10/10.”
Candy’s Book Case

  1. Pure brilliance again! But one things nags at me…Mark refers to Claire as Beattie on page 295. Was he in on it? A little clue? Won’t say more for fear of spoilers but wonder what other readers think. Thanks for if possible, the most superb book yet. Couldn’t put it down, literally.

  2. Hi Louise. Thank you so much for your kind words and sorry it took me so long to find them! I am afraid that what you point out here is an error that slipped through – I set myself and the proofreaders a gargantuan task having a character with two names! It was corrected for the mass market paperback, and I hope the kindle edition has been corrected too. Were you reading it on a kindle? If so, I’d love to know so we can correct that too. Thanks once again.

    1. Nope, being a single mum and a Luddite, I read it as a paperback from my library after serious nagging to get it in. It’s probably something of a collector’s item now…perhaps I should steal it. Kidding. Sort of. I really thought it might be a little teaser and thought up all sorts of alternatives for Mark (too much time on my hands). It IS a gargantuan task to write a character with two names and as previously sucked up/stated, it’s done so brilliantly I really thought this was meant to be. Thanks for letting me know and hope you’re churning out another one! Australian libraries have rude mothers demanding, you know.

      1. HI Louisa – I’m sorry to have caused so much plot speculation! Thank you for your kind comments. I have a new one called Her Husband’s Lover coming out in January 2017… In the meantime, have you tried Erin Kelly’s books? The Poison Tree, The Burning Air and The Sick Rose. They are fantastic!
