My Review of A Hard Woman is Good To Find
A Hard Woman is Good To Find by Ash Ericmore is book six in my Godless books readathon. If you want to join in please feel free.
Life can be a wonderful thing. You can meet the one, have children together, and have a wonderful life together. Life can also be a burning dumpster. With the rising costs of life, Harry and his wife end up having to move when he’s told that he might not have a secure job anymore. They’ve just had a little boy and the timing couldn’t have been worse. They also have to move from their beautiful home after the bills become too much.
Choosing a high-rise block of flats for their new residence wasn’t their initial preference, and understandably so. The bond between them is firmly established, rooted in deep family connections and unwavering devotion. The portrayal of a family that is anything but perfect is a refreshing departure from the norm, highlighting the imperfections and challenges they face in their less-than-ideal life. Despite the hope that moving into the high-rise would mark a fresh beginning, it turned out to be more of a conclusion—a final nail in the coffin.
A Hard Woman is Good to Find is full of grit and determination, borne out of hate and venom. The protagonist is crafted so meticulously that you just want to reach out and hug her. You feel the hungering need to support her, to tell her it’ll all be okay, even when you know it won’t be. Every emotion is stirred by the individual actions of others.
This book reminded me a lot of the thriller, Woman on the Edge by Samantha M. Bailey. You can read my review here.
A Hard Woman is Good to Find was no ordinary horror story. Full of urban, concrete atmosphere, this is not going to be a place you send a postcard from saying ‘wish you were here.’
I took a side. I was committed. How can you not pick a side in this kind of circumstance? The wife was gunning for blood, and I felt that rush of adrenaline too. I could feel the feminine rage pumping through my veins, and I just wanted to see justice done. See it done in the way those thugs had meted it out. I was not disappointed.
