Some Days Are Dark

Miranda Smith

“⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ YES!… entirely captivating, the plot twists at the end had me on the edge of my seat… Mind blown. Do yourselves a favour, READ IT!” Goodreads Reviewer, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I was happy my husband died, but I couldn’t admit it, otherwise people might think I killed him.


Olivia knows she is lucky. She has a loving husband, Frank, an adorable son, Jake, and a beautiful new home. It couldn’t be more different from her childhood on the outskirts of Whitaker, dirt poor and dreaming of getting out. But at the end of long days with no one to talk to, always feeling like she’s not quite good enough, she starts to wonder if there’s a better life waiting…


Everyone in Whitaker knows who Olivia is. She’s the woman who left her family for no-good Dane Miller, and the one who most likely shot him. Now, there’s gossip about her everywhere she goes, she’s too scared to leave the house most days, and she barely gets to see her beloved son.

But if the police and the world think she’s guilty, there’s only one thing she can do—prove her innocence herself. Even if that means putting her own life in danger…

An absolutely gripping, heart-pounding suspense novel about bad choices and second chances. Perfect for fans of Gone Girl, Karin Slaughter and Lisa Gray.
