Stupenea has a pleasant writing style and is a dab hand at code-switching between young adults and adults in her dialogues. Her novel is well structured, exciting, direct and romantic. Moord om de Hoek (‘Murder round the Corner’) features a number of erotic scenes which the author describes with a combination of honesty and tastefulness. Stupenea complements all this with a deft, fastidious pen and a plot that is full of surprises.
In conclusion, Moord om de Hoek (‘Murder round the Corner’) is an outstanding debut that is most definitely moreish!
