The book opens with a look at Henry's past. It's ugly and it even made my old hateful self have a few feels. He ended up being raised by his grandmother after losing his sister Helen and both parents. Henry goes through hell, I'm not spoiling anything by telling you that part.

Then you meet present day Henry, he has moved on from the horrible tragedy and is now happily married, has two children and is a very successful writer.

He writes a series based on a serial killer named Eli. His series is ev

4 Stars!!


As a reader I love when a book surprised me and this little dark gem sure did. While “Blue Hill Blood” wasn’t the best psychological thriller/mystery I have ever read, I have to say it was quite good, definitely a page turner that kept my attention from start to finish. It was dark, raw, twisted, intense and of course like the title suggest, it was bloody. So it goes without saying this book will f@ck with your mind.

The story fallows Henry McElroy, New York Times Best Selling Author.
It's been days. And, I'm still a bit hung up on this one, still processing. Henry's past was so heartbreaking, gah. I have no words. Reading about those events, that day when his 14 year old life was turned up side down, I was horrified and I was hooked.


Jumping to the present we meet the man, Henry has become. In his late thirties, he is happily married, the father of two girls, and a bestselling author. Looking for inspiration for his current work in progress he heads to Blue Hill, Maine. Line

5 Crazy Ass Stars for "Blue Hill Blood"! This book was one dark, twisted and unpredictable ride!

Henry has a dark past but this past along with his wife Leesa has helped him to become a phenomenal author. He writes books about a serial killer named Eli.

This book goes back and forth in time but it is easy to follow and easy to read. Boy does it twist and turn! I loved the story, I loved the author's writing and I loved the crazy characters that Elizabeth Gray created.

It's hard to write a lot about

This book has a 4.59 rating (by people who have actually read the book rather than fangirls just “soooooooo excited for release date and ermagherd squee squee squee”). Know what that means????

Hey ! . . . Fellow Goodreaders,

Firstly, I'd like to apologize in advance for this piss poor review. Its been a while; I'm a little rusty. Now, I could be a royal douchebag and spoil the entire book for everyone, but this homey don't play that. Instead, I'm going to list what I appreciate most about Elizabeth Gray

Hands down, one of the best psychological thrillers I have ever read. This book is like NOTHING else out there. It is part Basic Instinct, part Misery, part Gone Girl. Brilliantly written.

4 Helen & Scarface Stars!

The prologue guts you. It's the start of Henry's world crumbling around him. The day he loses everything that is important to him. The day Henry is filled with pain and a darkness that refuses to stay hidden.

Henry's past is gruesome and unforgettable and he can't seem to let it go. When he is a teenager his grandmother gives him a notebook and tells him to write down his thoughts. The writing turns into a therapy of sorts. Maybe even an escape for him. After all he need

4 Crazy stars

One word to describe Blue Hill Blood is CRAZY. This is not a romance book, this is not an easy book to read and this is one of the darkest books I have ever read.

I consider myself a dark book junkie. I don’t get phase by cheating, rape or torture, that’s all typical for these types of books, but I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I picked up this one. With that said. If you are ready to start this journey with me, you will not be disappointed.

Read this at night, right
Well, shoot. This one really starts off with a bang, grabbing me right by the ying-yang. That prologue was fantastic, no two ways about it. Then I must have started reading it wrong, the dialogue and I didn't get along very well at all. High sexual content. Don't make a decision based on my review. It really has some crazy good parts, but I am only willing to part with three stars for the whole of it. ...more

Blue Hill Road is a dark, demented, and twisted psychological thriller, that will have you questioning your own sanity. At least it did me, because this was not an easy book to read. It was gruesome at times, and crossed the line from "reality to fiction" causing my mind to question what was real and what wasn't. Just as I thought I knew what was going on, the book would take a left turn and we would be on a new, bumpy road.

Typically I wouldn't pick up this sort of book, but let me tell you I am immensely glad that I did.

There's no messing about here, you're thrown right into an intense scene that will pull at your heart strings. It makes an impact.

I was like a shark chomping on a fleshy seal with this book. I could not devour it quick enough. It chilled me, thrilled me and had me chewing all my nails off. It takes you for a messed up ride and I loved every second of it.

This one is going on my Twisted Approved List, so beware, this book is dark and may not be for everyone. A psychological thriller with dark erotic themes.

O.M.G. This was a delicious, decadent chocolate cake of total mind twistery. My craving for depravity has been sated. Go in blind, I haven't read any other reviews, but I'm afraid someone will ruin this story for you.

The prologue will smack you and rest of the book will feel like a blurry mess of all consuming darkness. Henry's a writer of ho
My mind was just thoroughly f*@ked! Pass a Newport please!!!!

I don't even know how to write this review because I don't want to give anything away. My kindle is full of notes that I can't share so I will keep this vague and short.

The book started off by gutting me during the prologue and then played to my sympathies as Henry's story continues. I thought I knew, somewhat, how this was going to play out. WRONG!!!

BOOM! My mind has been blown! I can’t even right now! I have no words. Like what did I just read??

I’m going to be honest with you, I had no real idea what I was going into when I picked up this book. All I knew was that one of my favorite authors was writing a new series under a new pen name. Who is this author, you might ask? It’s author K. Webster. Now, if you know me, then you know that I am a big, huge fan of her books. But, let me tell you, this book; it’s unlike anything you’ve read from

4.5 stars, I couldn't put it down. Blue Hill Blood did what so few books are able to do--it surprised me. Vaguely reminiscent of Stephen King's Misery, Henry is a successful author who just struck a movie deal on his series about a serial killer named Eli. Under a deadline and suffering writer's block, he sets off for the quaint town of Blue Hill for character inspiration and to get his mojo back.
The story is set in Henry's past and present, interspersed with excerpts of his novel in progress. H
4.5 ★

Henry "Hank" McElroy found a way to channel his childhood trauma. Now a bestselling author, Hank is in the process of writing his newest book and this takes him to a small coastal town. While interacting with the locals, Hank’s creativity flows, but when his past and present converge, his characters seem to influence reality.

Dripping with fucking innocence.
Eager to please.
Naïve to a fault."

5 Total and Complete Mind Fuck Stars!!!!

I am absolutely certain that K Webster can get me to read any genre she chooses to write and make me love it! This is her debut novel writing as Elizabeth Gray and it is was completely phenomenal!!!! Just so y’all know, this comes from someone who closes her eyes during every scary scene in a movie and hates horror films!!! The problem with doing that while reading is quite obvious… but don’t think I didn’t try this during at least a couple of the scenes i

So this book just inspired a new shelf for me.

Jeezus. It's a EASY 5 star read but this is not my usual lane lol. Talk about crazy. This is CRAZY. Like, into the Twilight Zone crazy. And brilliant. The way this story is told? What it's about? Who's twisted and who's even MORE twisted? Brilliant.

If you're looking for a well told thriller type read.... THIS would be a good one!

Normally I'd say 'Happy Reading'...... Not sure that applies here lol!

But shoot fire this book is GOOD!!!!!!!!

This book was so good. The epilogue opens up with such a promising ride. It had me feeling so much so fast I was hooked instantly. The story was crazy af, and when you think you had it all figured out it gets more crazy af. Overall, readers of dark twisted stories will find this book appealing.

It's been FOUR DAYS since I read this. I'm totally ready for this review, my mind has totally processed this, right? WRONG. But still, I need to review this and tell you all how freakishly, amazing of a mind-fuck this is. I am still processing my feelings while writing this review so please try and stay with me lol!

"She's a beautiful song that I can't help but get stuck in my head."

This is the debut novel for Elizabeth Gray. However, I have read numerous books under this author's original pen name, K. Webster, and although this story has a different taste than what she would typically write in the contemporary romance genre, the words of Elizabeth Gray blew me away.

I loved this book, it really twisted with my mind and had me wanting to scream and throw my kindle at times. I really liked all the characters except for one and I absolutely despised her! I never say much in my reviews so I don't give anything away but I highly recommend this one if you want something to read that will make you not want to put it down and have your emotions all over the place in a good way. (Or you decide if that will be in a good way or not lol) 5 stars from me. ...more
Wow... What a f'ed up book this was!!! I enjoyed the heck out of it!! This psychological suspense thriller had me on the end of my seat with anticipation. There was a couple of times I had to put the book down because my anxiety couldn't take it. I loved it a lot!
Anyways is it possible to hate the MC's & still love the book? Yeah, that's me right now! It's so wrong that it makes it so right. I did not see the climax of the book coming. Don't ask because I'm not telling you. Read the book!
