The Coffin Club - Jacqueline Sutherland


Some people would kill for a second chance.

Kat is rebuilding her life. After losing her husband in a tragic accident, moving to the countryside is her chance to start again.

Encouraged by her new and only friend Ginny, Kat joins New Horizons, dubbed the Coffin Club by its members. And that’s how she meets Nico. Instantly drawn to each other, Nico seems like Kat’s perfect match. He is kind, caring, handsome and, most importantly, a father to five-year-old Magdalena. This could be Kat’s shot at the one thing she has always wanted: to be a mother.


Well, this was a curious one. I'll be honest, although I was intrigued by the description and eager to read it I still wasn't sure what kind of tale was going to be told.

As you can see from the blurb above Kat is mourning the death of her husband which left her, as well as being a widow, with facial scarring that always reminds her of her loss.

A fresh start in the countryside doesn't seem to be fixing things for her and she decides to take her own life. Thankfully her attempt at death by driving fails and she instead hits a deer. Taking the injured deer to an animal rescue centre Kat meets Ginny and things start to look up. Kat and Ginny become friends and Ginny gets Kat to join the Coffin Club, a group for widows and widowers who are keen to try for a second chance at love and here she meets Nico. The pair are attracted from the off and it seems Nico is just what Kat needs and, with him having a five year old daughter she could still have a chance at the big thing missing in her life - being a mum.

 Things soon start to go awry though and secrets are there to be uncovered. Is anybody who they say they are? You'll find plenty of twists and turns before you get to find out (I thought I had it sussed bit I was very wrong). 

A very good psychological mystery
