It’s super star guest reviewer Dave Hardy in the first of two blog tours here on the blog today.
This is Dave’s first ‘official blog tour’ so lets make him proud!
Here’s the blurb . . .
Vicky Seagrave is blessed: three beautiful children, a successful, doting husband, great friends and a job she loves. She should be perfectly happy.
When she risks everything she holds dear on a whim, there’s only person she trusts enough to turn to.
But Vicky is about to learn that one mistake is all it takes; that if you’re careless with those you love, you don’t deserve to keep them . . .
Dave’s thoughts . . .
Blimey, what a great book this is! It really is a seriously good piece of psychological thriller writing.
The story covers two periods of time, 1992 and 2010. Throughout the beginning of the book we learn about Vicky and her family, the idealistic set up with her husband Tom and the kids; everything seems happy. She confesses a secret to her best friend Amber and they stick together like glue; best of friends. We also hear about Katya in 1992, a young girl that has been taken into care after losing her Mum and the devastation on her feeling isolated and alone whilst waiting for foster parents. I didn’t have a clue how these two separate stories would merge together, but they do, and I’ll leave that one there.
The intrigue and fascination with this story kept me constantly reading. An exceptional plot and brilliant writing keeps this book flowing like the Amazon river. The twists, turns and unexpected events are extremely remarkable. It’s frightening to think how the events of the past can effect our feelings, judgements and actions in the present, but they sure do!
I thought the characters were excellent. They all show many diverse characteristics, and always managed to surprise me throughout the read, especially Amber and Vicky and their relationship of trust, friendship, doubts, jealousy and a load of paranoia thrown into the mix.
The book for me hits all the correct spots for a chilling, tense and indulgent, exciting read, I honestly couldn’t put this down and I’ve read hundreds of psychological thrillers. The quality of the writing is at a very high level, and I very much look forward to reading more from Emma Curtis, a tremendous storyteller
I’ll leave it there as I never want to thrown in any spoilers, but this is a book you must read if you’re a fan of this genre. A proper cracker and highly recommended.
Massive 4.5 Stars!!
