I’m thrilled to be helping kick of the blog blitz for Maggie by Netta Newbound.
Don’t forget to check out the other stops on the tour.
When sixteen-year-old Maggie Simms’ mum loses her battle with cancer, the only family she has left is her abusive stepfather, Kenny.
Horrified to discover he intends to continue his nightly abuse, Maggie is driven to put a stop to him once and for all.
However, she finds her troubles are only just beginning when several of her closest allies are killed.
Although nothing seems to be linking the deaths, Maggie believes she is jinxed.
Why are the people she cares about being targeted?
And who is really behind the murders?
Sometimes the truth is closer than you think.
Having not read anything by the author previously I wasn’t sure what to expect from her latest novel, Maggie. Well I wasn’t disappointed, that’s for sure.
Maggie is fast paced and highly intriguing and it will have you hooked from the beginning. There are twists and turns throughout the book and just when you think you have it figured out, something switches and you’re back to square one.
The characters are well written and you really do have to feel sorry for Maggie with everything she is going through. However, there were a couple of occasions when I forgot how old Maggie actually was due to her behaviour. At times she seemed a lot older than her sixteen years.
The pace of the story is perfect and the short chapters mean you can race along and get straight to the point which I loved and found to work extremely well with this story.
I would highly recommend this book and will be seeking out more by this author.
Many thanks to Sarah Hardy at Bloodhound Books for organising this blog blitz. Thanks also to the author, Netta Newbound, for giving me the opportunity to read and review this fantastic book.
About the Author
My name’s Netta Newbound. I write thrillers in many different styles — some grittier than others. The Cold Case Files have a lighter tone and are full of fun. I also write a series set in London, which features one of my favourite characters, Detective Adam Stanley. These books are a little grittier. My standalone books, The Watcher and An Impossible Dilemma, are not for the faint hearted, and it seems you either love them or hate them—I’d love to know what you think.
Originally from Manchester, England, I have travelled extensively and have lived and worked in a variety of exciting places. I now live in New Zealand with my husband. We have three grown up children and four grandchildren.
