BEFORE YOU READ THIS BOOK
I WANT YOU TO KNOW THREE THINGS:

1. The police are looking to charge me with murder.
2. No one knows who I am. Or how I did it.
3. If you think you’ve found me. I’m coming for you next

After you’ve read this book, you’ll know: the truth is far more twisted…

 

What I Say:

I mean just wow!

Having never read any of Steve Cavanagh’s previous novel, I was excited to get my teeth stuck into this one and boy was it worth it!

This is one of those novels that you can’t just sum up in a few short sentences so I’m not even going to attempt too. What I loved about this book is the total unexpected twists and how the author manages to lull you into a false sense of security at the beginning, only to flip everything on its head again and again. It is one of those novels which you won’t be able to put down as the author asks so many questions – like how the hell??

This novel sure takes you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions and keeps you on the edge of your seat until the very end!

Oh and that ending – breathtaking!

This is a standalone novel, so even like me you haven’t managed to read any of he’s other novels yet it’s a great introduction into this author’s fabulous writing style and twisted mind!

I don’t want to keep banging on about it as it’s really difficult to sum up without giving the game away. So just read it!!

Would highly recommend for anyone who loves and amazingly twisty story which will keep you guessing – up until the very end!

A big thank you to Tracy Fenton and Orion Books for allowing me to be a part of this tour

*Blog Tour* Only A Mother by Elisabeth Carpenter

Today, I’m super excited to be featured on the next stop of the blog tour for Elisabeth Carpenter’s new book, Only A  Mother, published by Orion Books. As part of the tour I have reviewed this fab book, but first up here’s a little about the novel.

Blurb:

ONLY A MOTHER . . .
Erica Wright hasn’t needed to scrub ‘MURDERER’ off her house in over a year. Life is almost quiet again. Then her son, Craig, is released from prison, and she knows the quiet is going to be broken.
COULD BELIEVE HIM
Erica has always believed Craig was innocent – despite the lies she told for him years ago – but when he arrives home, she notices the changes in him. She doesn’t recognise her son anymore.
COULD LIE FOR HIM
So, when another girl goes missing, she starts to question everything. But how can a mother turn her back on her son? And, if she won’t, then how far will she go to protect him?

COULD BURY THE TRUTH

What I Say:

I mean just WOW! This tells the story of Erica, whose son Craig was convicted 17 years ago of the murder of a young girl. Erica has always believed Craig was innocent, dutifully visiting him every week he’s been in prison. But Craig has now made parole and arrives home someone completely different. But when another girl goes missing, Erica must make the hard choice and face up to what could have happened all those years ago – or who her son really is.

This novel is told from the point of view of Erica, Luke a newspaper reporter and an unknown killer. What I loved about this novel is how the author could get under the skin of the characters and really brought them to life in this story. I liked the view point of Luke, an outsider who feels sorry for Erica but is determined to seek justice for the other missing girl Craig was never convicted for, as well as the new girl who suddenly vanishes.

I literally could not put this book down – the complex relationship between a mother and child was really at the heart of the novel and made for addictive reading. The twists and turns in this plot also made for such a compelling read.

This is a dark and creepy read, with a twisty plot and very disturbing but believable characters. Would highly recommend!
