DIRTY LAUNDRY: Why adults with ADHD are so ashamed and what we can do to help
About this deal
Ciara moves into a large house in an Irish town and has a friend Mishti.Lauren has returned to the town also. The women have families and different lifestyles, which they feud over. Everyone has a reason to hate Ciara, and all have problems of their own. This was a mess of a book, but in a fun way. It isn't the best domestic thriller that I've read, but it was interesting learning more about the intimate details of this small Irish village. 3.5 Stars Tagged detective, female detective, missing person, thriller, William Morrow Gillian McAllister | Just Another Missing Person
The characterisation is very good, Mishti is my favourite character as bless her, she’s so out of her depth. Ciara is an acquired taste at the very least. Most of the characters are unlikeable and all of the men are worth diddly squat having their own very dirty laundry. Wash it yourselves chaps. The storyline builds and the doo doo definitely hits the fan in a really entertaining ending.Fortunately, for Mishti Guha, the demure wife of an Immigrant from Calcutta, Ciara welcomed her into her clique. She has been perpetually COLD since moving to Ireland, and persistently lonely, since her husband, chosen for her by her well meaning parents, offers her no warmth or companionship. At least she has her daughter, Maya. I adored everything about this book, the cover is so eye catching and fun and gives a great initial insight into what to expect. This is a debut from author Disha Bose, who was born in India but now resides in Ireland, lending authenticity to the story.
Then we have 3 men - Ciara's ineffectual but successful husband Gerry, Mishti's husband Parth and Lauren's husband Sean - all of whom Ciara has bound to her in some way. Extraordinary! Disha so cleverly weaves the narratives of these three neighbours and frenemies! Absolutely compelling, original and intriguing. Domestic noir at its very finest’ Liz Nugent, bestselling author of Our Little Cruelties Mishti, Lauren& Ciara are our main characters and I did not like or care about what happened to any of them, not a one. That goes for the husbands, too.It IS an entertaining novel of domestic suspense, about three women, trying to hide their dirty laundry”. 🧺 And, it was a fun palette cleanser between darker reads.
