Blog Tour 5th September 2019
Today it’s my stop on the blog tour for Carol Wyer’s new release, The Sleepover. Thanks to Kim Nash for inviting me to take part, I’m delighted to be part of it.
My Thoughts – OMG I loved it!
Carol Wyer’s dark side just keeps getting better and better! I’m a big fan of this author.
It was certainly a busy night for crime, but who was responsible?
There were too many secrets and so many lies among the people known to the victims and their families. A real tangled mess for Natalie’s team need to trawl through, and it was so frustrating for them all.
From a beautiful big house on the nice side of town, to the run-down tower blocks on the other side. Some very seedy and unsettling scenes that I visualised only too well.
I loved this story, and it all wrapped up neatly in the end.
Talking of the very end….yes! I cannot wait for the next one!
A good time to start reading Carol Wyer’s books if you haven’t already, starting with The Birthday.
My reviews are short as I’m here to show off the book rather than my own writing ability.
Thanks to Carol Wyer, Bookouture, and NetGalley for the early review copy in which I give my honest opinion.
About the Book
(Detective Natalie Ward Book 4)
Roxy had a secret. Now she’s gone.
When fourteen-year-old Roxy says she’s going for a sleepover at her best friend’s house, Cathy sees no reason to check her daughter’s story. The two families are so close, and the girls are in and out of each other’s homes every day.
It turns out to be a decision she will regret. A day later, Roxy is found murdered in exclusive Linnet Lane. Detective Natalie Ward, called in to lead the investigation, is struck by the contrast between the house Roxy grew up in, and the one where her life ended.
As Natalie begins to look closely at Roxy’s family and friends, she soon discovers that this isn’t the first time Roxy has gone missing. All the signs point to an unhappy teenager who was hiding a great deal from her family.
Then Roxy’s mother Cathy disappears.
When Cathy’s body is discovered close to Linnet Lane, Roxy’s toy cat clutched in her arms, Natalie is forced to face the grim fact that they are dealing with a killer with a twisted plan.
Struggling to join the dots, Natalie wonders if she’s missed a vital clue when one of Roxy’s classmates is also found murdered.
Natalie’s not frightened of anyone, but the latest victim reminds her of her own son Josh, who is edging towards the wrong side of the tracks. With teenagers like her boy dying, can Natalie solve the case in time to keep Josh safe? Or is he about to make a dangerous new friend?
Gripping, fast-paced and nail-bitingly tense, this book will keep you flying through the pages long into the night. Perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, Rachel Abbott and Karin Slaughter.
