About the Author
Joy Mutter was born in Jersey in the Channel Islands and lived there for eighteen years. After gaining a Graphic Design Degree at Coventry University, she lived and worked in Kent as a professional graphic designer for twenty years. Joy moved from Kent to Oldham in 2012 and has been writing and publishing her books full-time since then. Although Joy has been writing books since 2007, she waited until 2015 to publish six of them on Amazon. Four more books followed in 2016 and one in 2017. All twelve are now available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle editions. Eight are also available as audiobooks on Audible, iTunes, and Amazon. Her first three books are mainly autobiographical and form The Mug Trilogy. Books in this series are A Slice of the Seventies, The Lying Scotsman, and Straws. Her fourth work, Potholes and Magic Carpets, is a character-led contemporary novel. Living with Postcards is the author's first non-fiction book. Random Bullets is a paranormal crime thriller and the author's favourite of all her books. Her demonic Angel was published in early 2016. It's a baker's dozen of the author's short stories, written in various genres. In April 2016, Joy published an unusual paranormal crime thriller called The Hostile. In December 2016, she published book two of The Hostile series, called Holiday for The Hostile. In April 2017, Joy published The Hostile Game, book three of the series. In August 2017, she published book four, Confronting The Hostile and The Hostile Series Box Set. There are audiobook editions of four books in The Hostile series, Random Bullets, Her demonic Angel, Potholes and Magic Carpets, and A Slice of the Seventies. There are more books in the pipeline as she's never short of ideas.

The narrator carried the main events, suddenly swooping into several players’ deep thoughts before lifting off again. The desire to follow the path swept me reading. However after reading 15% of the novel, one character hogged the limelight. The subject matter grew more and more pornographic, and I couldn’t be enticed to finish.
Joy Mutter is a new-to-me author. Like with any new author it takes you a chapter or two to get used to the particular style of a new author. The writing is easy to follow and uncomplicated. The book itself is a fairly quick read.
The book follows the lives that intertwine with others and the events within those peoples lives. One persons actions lead to a particular consequence which impacts (or doesn't) on another. it's an interesting set up. Fans of the dramatic will enjoy the events as they unfold, the humanists will enjoy seeing the lives woven with other lives - which are sometimes strangers.
I will be interested to read other Joy Mutter books and see where her style of writing leads to and what I make of it in the future.
If you like complex characters and strong story, you'll like this book.
i sometimes fine that when books have too many characters i dont always care about them, this didnt happen with the book, i really wanted to know more about everyone of them,
Just three chapters in, I already hated Nick, the first abusive protagonist, and longed to punch him! The characters have depth to them, evoking feelings of hate, pity, or love, and there are moments that make you want to laugh or cry as events unfold.
This book is like being a fly on the wall in numerous households all around the country, experiencing others' lives through the pages of the story. A great read that is harrowing at times but realistic, with a HEA that will put a smile on your face.
