Book Review: I Mean You No Harm
Last summer I wrote a blog post spotlighting the release of I Mean You No Harm by Beth Castrodale and if you’ve been following me for a while then it should come as no surprise that I just got around to reading it.
I Mean You No Harm is a novel that follows Layla Shawn, the estranged daughter to recently deceased career criminal, Vic Doloro. After arriving in town for his funeral, she spends time with her older half-sister, Bette, who she barely knows and thinks back to the mysterious death of her mother when she was very young.
Layla and Bette go on a road trip after the funeral for a mysterious errand that Bette needs to run and while on the road together they learn more about each other and talk about their one overnight trip together as kids with their father. Bette tells Layla more about their dad who Layla knew very little of. And Layla told Bette about her mother’s death which she is certain was murder. But does any of it have to do with Vic’s criminal past – the errand and Layla’s mother’s death?
The novel had me guessing what the reveal(s) would be. I had my guesses and as the novel progressed I became more sure of my prediction. I won’t tell you what my prediction was though or if I was right!
Overall, I enjoyed the novel and found it to be a quick read!
