Books are my Cwtches
Having read all the authors previous books I was excited to be asked to review Fat Chance. What I really love is that with each book she publishes Alison Morgan’s writing goes from strength to strength and she has once again delivered a first class read. Read more here
The Writing Garnett
I thought that ‘Fat Chance’ was a very, very different read which left me highly entertained in a weird and wonderful way. Even though I found the storyline intense at times, I didn’t think it had high levels of suspense. That said, it did grip me due to the eyebrow theme, and for entertainment value alone – I thought that AB Morgan did a sterling job. Read more here

Books From Dusk Till Dawn
I felt that the story was quite light-hearted to begin with but in the latter part of the book it does take a much deeper turn. An absolutely never would have guessed situation that sends the story in a totally different direction. I had become addicted to this story with its tasty delights of scrumptious desserts and mad cap characters that I loathed and loved. An unusual story with a delicious dark side, very different to the norm, in a brilliant way. I would love second helpings of this! Read more here

On The Shelf Reviews
Fat Chance is quite a complex and interesting story with a real mix of colourful characters!
I found Ella to be very fascinating. Suffering from what seems to me like bipolar disorder, she’s flamboyant and cheerful but also very naive! Read more here

Mystery Thriller Week
I like A.B. Morgan’s writing style. Right away, she places you in the mindset of the character within the scene. Well established point of view characters make this an easy and entertaining read. Great suspense, mystery, intrigue, and well balanced writing. Read more here

For me ‘Fat Chance’ is brilliantly written. I particularly loved the way in which there’s a strong emphasis on the psychological aspect of crime and how that impacts on victims. I am particularly interested in psychology. The writing was made all the more authentic when I discovered that the author used to be a mental health nurse, which is a career I would’ve loved to have had but which is not an option for me unfortunately.

Rachel Read It
‘Fat Chance’ is fast, fresh and funny-it is dark, engaging and all too believable. More than a straighforward A-Z investigation, it touches on female friendships, societal double standards and mental health. Alison Morgan brings her experiences in mental health services to the fore in the book, and it is dealt with so well-the story ends sadly but ultimately there is hope for Ella’s future and I really, really,hope that there will be more from Ella and her circle of confidantes.

Joanna Larum’s Reviews
I found this an enjoyable read although slightly confusing at first when all of the characters are being introduced. It is well-worth reading on past that section because the story is then beautifully portrayed and the clues are very well hidden. By the time I reached the end of the book, I was cheering Ella on as well as feeling so sorry for the struggles that she has in her daily life. certainly a book to look out for. Read more here

Throughout the book I was left guessing about what had happened and didn’t work it out until the reveal, which really added to the story line as I had to keep reading on to find out what was going to happen next. Read more here
Fat Chance book description
Available from AMAZON
A missing barrister, a severed thumb and fat chance of finding out the truth.
Ella Fitzwilliam’s world is about to spiral out of control. She’s not cut out to be a private investigator. With little or no aptitude for the job, she’s been sent undercover to expose the hidden lives of two men who meet nearly every week at Buxham’s – a private members’ club where portions are large and secrets are held in strictest confidence.
One of those men is Harry Drysdale, a defence barrister, and the other is Marcus Carver, an eminent surgeon with a tarnished past and much to lose. Ella knows he has unhealthy appetites, she’s sure he’s feeding his perverted habits and putting his female patients at risk but she has to prove it.
When Harry Drysdale goes missing, Konrad Neale TV journalist tries to reveal the truth behind the lies, but some of the secrets start to reveal themselves… and they are big.
Alison Morgan lives in rural Bedfordshire, UK, with her engineer husband and bonkers dog. Life is never boring and they are usually planning the next adventure. Alison spent several decades working on the front line of mental health services as a specialist nurse and latterly as manager of an early intervention service for first episode psychosis. However, when a heart problem brought her career to a juddering halt, she had to find a way of managing her own sanity, so she sat down to write some useful clinical guidelines for student nurses. Instead, a story that had been lurking in her mind came spewing forth onto the pages of what became her first novel. Since then she has been unable to stem the flow of ideas and writes full-time from a luxurious shack at the top of the garden. Alison writes under the name A B Morgan and. within her storylines, she continues to make good use of her years of experience in mental health services, where the truth is often much stranger than fiction.
