My review of Mummy’s Little Angel
I received Mummy’s Little Angel in exchange for my honest review.
This is the first book that I have read by JW Lawson and it won’t be my last.
This was up there as one of the best psychological thrillers I have read and I have read a few.
With every turn of the page (or slide of the finger on my kindle) there was something to keep you wanting to continue reading. A brilliant read.

Whenever I’m asked by strangers what I do for a living, I am always honest. “I run my own business and I’m a part-time Author as well.” Their response is normally so predictable and, in some cases, I am completely shocked! “Wow, so how much do you earn from that, then?”
Now, call me old-fashioned but I have never, ever asked a complete stranger such a personal question. Could you imagine meeting a Solicitor at a dinner party then asking what his or her annual salary is? Which brings me to my next point: “Is business good? Are your books selling well?” Of course, I shrug my shoulders, paint a big smile on my face, and walk away. Deep down, I’d like to say, “So how’s the old legal business going then? You still making loads of money?” But, I don’t as I respect their privacy.
Only recently, a social media contact asked me when I was going to do a free promotion on kindle. I politely declined but I felt like asking when the dentist would offer free treatment, when the Estate Agent would sell my home for nothing, etcetera, and etcetera. But that, of course would be ridiculous and very rude!
Before I go, I’d like to share a few experiences my fellow authors, and me have had:
- “Writing is such a lovely hobby. I like gardening. I was wondering whether you would write my book in your spare time and we could maybe split the royalties 70/30.”
- “Why can’t I pop over this weekend? You’re only playing with words on the computer.”
- “How did you feel when you – oops, I mean your main character – lived through that horrendous stuff? I felt so sorry for you. It must have been a nightmare pouring out your heart in a thriller, knowing it was your life everyone was reading about.”
“Two years until your next book? I can’t wait that long.”
“I’ve been your friend for years and I absolutely knew you had a best-seller in you. I’ve told all of my friends that you won The World’s Best Story. Don’t forget me when it goes to movie! What’s the name of the book again?”
“Oh I don’t buy books anymore. I scan the web and look for the websites offering free PDF copies. I did that with your first book and I’m sure in a year or so, I’ll find Mummy’s Little Angel out there as well.”
Please don’t get me wrong as there are millions of loyal, considerate, caring, wonderful readers who would never, ever state any of the above. I love you all very much (is that enough creeping for now?!) However, before I go, let me share my all-time favourite with you. Hopefully, it will make you smile too:
“Me leave a review? Unlike you lucky authors, I don’t have a spare moment in the day. I have a real job!”
