Elaine Gibbs has been defined by other people’s words for much of her life: autistic, shifter, adopted, genius, Royal Marine. She has spent a year having her entire world spun around and just when she hopes things have stabilised, a zealot threatens everything she holds dear, including her life.

Alim Kader grew up knowing his family’s expectations and is required to fall in line. Life, however, threw him a massive surprise in the body of the most fascinating woman he has ever known. Now if he could only convince her that his sole desire is to stand beside her, not rescue her.

Will love be enough for two people from different worlds to brave a storm of evil and come through the other side unscathed?

5 out of 5 (exceptional)

The Misguided Confession is the story of Elaine, who features prominently in Dahlia Donovan's first set, The Blackbird Security series. Although you can read this as a standalone, I personally would recommend you read the prior books, just so you get a complete picture of not only Elaine, but also the relationships she has with people. The characters in this book are connected in one way or another, and seeing those individual relationships change and develop is wonderful.

Alim and Elaine haven't had what you might call a 'normal' courtship, mainly due to Elaine's autism. However, this hasn't stopped either of them from making it work. Even if she can't vocalise it, Elaine knows that Alim is always doing his best for her, and she appreciates it, whilst also understanding that she needs to do her fair share too. Not only do you have the intricacies of their relationship, but you also have a religious 'nutter' on the loose, who is going around killing people he deems demons. You also have the Pack trying to make amends for decisions made involving Elaine, which she doesn't really want.

All in all, this is a packed book, full of action, plus tea and biscuits. Dahlia Donovan produces a story full of British witticisms every time, and I love her for it. It is not very often that you read a story where the main character is autistic, and I personally loved the insight. Full of characters I know and adore, plus realistic situations and places, this book was a thoroughly enjoyable read that I have added to my "To Be Kept" folder, along with the rest of Dahlia Donovan's books. 

I think that this will be a marmite book - you will either love it, or hate it. Personally, I love it and can't wait to read more of this author's work.

Dahlia Donovan started out working in the insurance world. After ten years, she morphed her love of investigating accidents and studying people into writing about them. She's a bit of a hermit and despises being in front of a camera. Her life wouldn't be complete without her husband and her massive collection of books and video games.
