I’m really pleased to have been asked to share another book review today, Snap, Cackle and Pop by Carol Kearney.
Snap, Cackle and Pop introduces us to Cathy, a 54-year-old woman who has everything her heart desires. A big house, a new car and a husband who adores her. But what does Cathy do when the life she knows and loves is destroyed in eight minutes?
