Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Lethal Ties by Helen Christmas. Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources for my spot on the tour. Check out my review!
A haunting vision. A spine-chilling nightmare. A missing boy.
When Joe, Maisie and Sam met in a residential children’s home, they pledged to look out for each other; three friends who were inseparable until the night Sam went missing…
Twenty years later, Maisie suffers flashbacks, unable to understand what lies at the root of her recurring nightmares. Shocked to find Joe, homeless on Bognor seafront, she helps him turn his life around, but it doesn’t seem long before their past comes back to haunt them.
What really went on at Orchard Grange all those years ago?
Where did Sam go?
Only he can provide the answers but they need to find him.
Within weeks of Maisie and Joe being reunited, however, an eerie presence disrupts their world. A mysterious black car is tailing them; a campaign of online abuse makes Joe wonder if his enemies are still around. He has never forgotten Mr Mortimer from the children’s home, until a shocking attempt on his life launches a police investigation.
Lethal Ties is a tense psychological thriller, an untangling of secrets with an utterly chilling twist.
Lethal Ties by Helen Christmas had me hooked from page one. This is a mystery and a psychological thriller with a police procedural vibe as well.
The pacing of this novel was excellent. It was difficult to put it down. It takes the reader on an emotional journey with a lot of twists. I really liked how I wasn’t given all the info up front, so the plot was put together like a puzzle.
I liked all the aspects of this novel and would definitely recommend it!
Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources For allowing me to join this blog tour. I recieved a free copy of this book to review honestly. All opinions are my own and unbiased.*
I’ve had a passion for writing since childhood and wrote my first full length novel in 2011.
This grew into a five-book mystery thriller series (Same Face Different Place). I love networking with other authors and the highlight of my writing journey was in 2015 when I was selected as a winner in a short story competition “Write Across Sussex,” judged by Kate Mosse and Peter Lovesey. I love where we live and with a passion for walking and photography, found the inspiration to base my novel in West Sussex.
I am active on social media and have written various articles about my characters on my blog. The underlying premise of ‘Lethal Ties’ is to raise awareness of mental health problems and promote a better understanding of conditions such as Asperger’s.
‘Lethal Ties’ is my first standalone psychological thriller and set in my local town, Bognor Regis.
