All In Her Head by Nikki Smith – Book Review

All In Her Head by Nikki Smith – Book Review


An emotionally charged suspense about the dark corners of a mother’s mind, perfect for fans of Erin Kelly and Louise Candlish.

A haunting and compelling book that shines a light on the darkest corners of the human psyche and makes us question our limits.

Alison is more alone than she’s ever been. She is convinced that her ex-husband Jack is following her. She is certain she recognises the strange woman who keeps approaching her in the canteen.

She knows she has a good reason to be afraid. She just can’t remember why.

Then the mention of one name turns her life upside down.

Alison feels like she’s losing her mind . . . but it could just lead her to the truth.


All In Her Head is the story of Alison who has amnesia after suffering a trauma in her past. 

She sees people who she thinks she knows but is worried one of them may have been responsible for her trauma. Her sense of fear and paranoia builds, as the reader begins to see the larger story, how Alison’s mental health is drawing her deeper into her fears.

With plenty of twists and surprises this unique thriller is so clever, utterly compelling and is a read in one sitting book. Brilliant.

Thank you to Anne Cater and Random Things Tours for the opportunity to participate in this blog tour,  for the promotional materials and a free copy of the book. This is my honest, unbiased review.




Nikki studied English Literature at University before pursuing a career in finance. She always had a passion for writing and in 2017 she applied for a Curtis Brown Creative writing course. Later that year she had a short story published and submitted the opening chapters of her novel to a competition where she won the opportunity to be mentored by the author Amanda Reynolds, and the rest was history.
