Reviews

"Berry’s skilled, unforgiving rendering of these flawed characters, along with her propelling prose, is exactly what makes the novel so compulsively readable. "

Stacey May Fowles

"Everything Turns Away is an impressive mystery with strong thriller elements and well worth reading on that level alone. Where Berry excels, though, is with her attention to each character [. ..] While the four main characters begin as familiar types, they deepen and fill out over the novel, becoming relatable and sympathetic despite some inherent unlikability. Most readers will find elements like the respective bitchy post-dinner analyses and the escalating marital complications perhaps uncomfortably familiar. "
