Book Review – Blame

Cover image for Blame / Nicole Trope.

By Nicole Trope

A contemporary family drama set in Australia “Blame” tells the conflicting stories of 2 women as they are questioned by police after a tragic accident,. What happened that day, and who is telling the truth? “Blame” is gritty, touches on uncomfortable subjects and makes you think about how your might act in these circumstances. This was very easy to read and a real page turner – I finished it in 2 days, where most books take me 1 – 2 weeks.
