People Like Her by Ellery Lloyd – Book Review

January 5, 2021 in Mystery & Thriller

It’s 2021! Yay! So it’s about time we got excited about all the new books that are being released this year. One of these books is a thriller about an Instamum who is being stalked by a mysterious stranger hellbent on getting revenge. *suspenseful music* You might not know but when I started blogging back in 2018, I was a “mummy blogger”.
