Welcome to my spot on the tour for A Lifetime Ago by Jim Ody! Thank you to Zooloo’s Book Tours for the copies of these books and the opportunity to be on the tour. Be sure to let me know what you think in the comments.
This is a tale about how the events of one day have such catastrophic consequences on the future.
Hudson Bell is a consultant for the police. A former DI, he spends his days helping to find missing children.
May and her son go on a road trip to celebrate his birthday; Robert and Nadia buy their dream house by the sea.
But as each look to enjoy a new life, none of them can shake off what happened on that fateful day. One of them blames the others and will stop at nothing to seek revenge.
One accident and five lives changed forever.
A Lifetime Ago is my third read from Jim Ody, and I’m a huge fan of this author’s writing. But, before we get into that…this cover is absolutely gorgeous. I’m obsessed. Okay, on to the review.
A Lifetime Ago follows Hudson Bell as he helps find missing children. The case he’s on in this book is quite the mystery.
I couldn’t put this down, and every time I thought I knew what was going on, turns out I didn’t. I love the twists and turns, especially toward the end. My mind was blown.
Jim Ody writes with the precision needed to pull of unexpected twists, as well as strong characters and emotive writing. I can’t wait to read more in this series and by this author. Don’t miss out!
Thank you to Zooloos Book Tours for the review copy and the opportunity to honestly review this book on the tour. All opinions are my own and unbiased.
Jim writes dark psychological/thrillers, Horror and YA books that have endings you won’t see
coming, and favours stories packed with wit. He has written over a dozen novels and many more short-stories spanning many genres.
Jim has a very strange sense of humour and is often considered a little odd. When not writing he will be found playing the drums, watching football and eating chocolate. He lives with his long-suffering wife, three beautiful children and two indignant cats in Swindon, Wiltshire UK.
