Then I read the blurb which pulled me in even more.
I was lucky to receive this book from the author for my honest and open review.
If you check, I read a LOT and sometimes a book stands out, sometimes it blurs into a very good book but not outstanding in any way, however, I found this to be outstanding in its sequences of events.
We had Sandra whose son witnessed a murder. Because he stood up and informed the Police he appeared in court against the perpetrator, the perpetrator was part of a well know tough crime incorporated family, so he would be in fear of his own life. He is persuaded to go under Witness protection. He felt it was him being punished and he wasn't too happy about this. Neither was his Mom Sandra, but alas, it had to be done....right?
The other situation is Sandra is travelling on a train when Ben picks up a conversation with her. He opening tells her within that conversation that he had slit someone's throat.
I would have ran for the hills! But the story doesn't develop like this, it takes a twist.
It clearly was a page turner for me, it didn't loose its pace throughout.
I just have a few misgivings with the editing and layout of paragraphs and some spelling/grammer.
This is only one of three of the authors books, so I am bearing that in mind and feel that she has a lot to give in the authors sphere and readers enjoyable reading of her books.
Would I read another from her? Yes I would, I thought this was a well developed book.
I loved the premise of this book, it sounded quite different from anything I had previously read and being a fan of psychological thrillers I was sure I would enjoy it however, sadly I was disappointed. Although I found the book well-written and the characters well-developed I found the story wanting. There was a lot of repetition in the characters actions which was quite irritating. I spent a large part of the book being annoyed at Sandra's irrational decisions and not considering something which I felt was glaringly obvious. Ben was a bit erratic at first but actually the best character in the whole story while Carl was just obnoxious and lazy. The pace was reasonable although it picked up in the last 20-30% of the book.Read more ›
