Crikey what a story.
When Lila Ambersom is released from hospital,after an awful accident she just wants to move on.Jacks sister died in the crash. He wants answers but as Lila gets flashbacks there’s someone that doesn’t want her to remember what happened.
A well written story with a gripping storyline. My mind was trying to speed ahead while I was reading but I still didn’t get it right.
Have you ever gotten onto a high speed amusement park ride, a roller coaster perhaps, barely got the safety bar down and haven’t even situated yourself properly and it takes off leaving you grasping for a handhold? That is how this book takes off, and it never slows down. One twist after another, any time you think you have it figured out, you are wrong, oh so wrong.
In addition to a gift of being able to take dizzying thrills and ...more
This is the fourth book from this author and definitely the best.
Set in Norfolk the scenery so well described is fabulous backdrop to a thriller. It starts with an accident and you are then taken on a journey with so many twists and turns.
Lila and Jack are substantial characters, they have depth. The dialogue is so well written it's like listening to them.
There are many red herrings amongst the clues. I did not figure out who the killer was.
The author has accomplished a sto ...more
One of this authors best attributes is her ability to write such real characters. People that have aspects you like but also things that infuriate you about them.
Having read and enjoyed all her books so far, I really like the way she has changed things up. Setting this book in a sleepy Norfolk town in the UK instead of the US where her other books have been set up. It shows an author who is not afraid to ...more
The story starts out with a mysterious event that instantly grabs you and draws you in. The character development is strong and you actually care about the cast and hope things work out but there’s an air of uncertainty and it could go either way. Conspirators or protagonists, you’re uncertain, but they work together, but how closely and how well, you want know so you keep reading. Keri ma ...more
Dying to Tell is the fourth book from this author and for the first time is set in her home county of Norfolk, England. Her local knowledge of the main locations provide good descriptions enabling you to immerse yourself further into the plot as it changes direction with the characters showing different sides to there personalities, e ...more
I am usually a leisureley reader, but I genuinely couldn't put this book down. I started one evening, finished the next day and the following day started to read it again. It was every bit as good, (if not better), the second time around.
It's based in an around rural Norwich, which is great, it's a beautiful area and being aware of some of the areas in the book made ...more
I'm local to the area in which the book is set, which added a personal level of excitement, but is not at all necessary to enjoy the book on the many levels it i ...more
An horrific car accident leaves the main character Lila tracing the steps of that terrible night. Her life is in constant danger, although she does realise this initially, from a mysterious physio and a chance meeting will change her life. This boo ...more
Lila, the main character, is relatable and likeable. She's flawed and knows it which is refreshing. I felt a connection with her in regard of making mistakes, second guessing herself, and trying to get her life together.
The whole novel reads like a love letter to Norwich, Cromer especially. I felt that we were given a photographer's eye, like Lila's, looking at the lands ...more
A heart pounding unputdownable book and has put Keri straight on my must read authors list.
The book starts with a claustrophobic atmosphere and quickly sets the pace for a thrilling ride full of twists and turns.
I liked both Lila and Jack from the start even though they got off on the wrong foot to begin with, but their characters were well thought out and meaty, and I genuinely cared about what happened to them.
Some of the other people in the story were not so likeable but brilliantly described ...more
Caution: Don’t read this book on a dark and stormy night. Keri Beevis’s latest offering is another compelling and deftly written “who done it” from this brilliant author. Each of her novels has been better than the last. She smoothly intertwines suspense and romance as she carefully develops her characters allowing the reader to become intimately familiar with them; to care about them. Her description of her hometown surroundings paints an authenti ...more
Starting with a bang, literally, Lila Amberson survives a car crash that kills her blind date and another woman, Stephanie Foley. Finding a strange locket among her hospital items she embarks on a quest to reunite it with its owner, unaware that that her i ...more
This is a perfect "I know who did it!" story, that becomes "Wow! I never saw that coming!".
It's like a rollercoaster ride ...hang on tight! You're in for several twists & turns, that will make your heart quicken.
I never wanted this book to end, it would make a fantastic movie.
I’ve read all of Keri’s books so far and enjoyed them however this one is next level fantastic. The characters are amazing, the plot well paced and the twists are brilliant. I read this book in a single sitting and cannot wait to reread it. Will be recommending to everyone I know
Keri’s description of Norfolk is spot on with detailed locations, taking you to beautiful spots then to dark scary places.
This is a well written psychological thriller that I just couldn’t put down, I already miss the characters.
Lots of twists and turns kept me second guessing everything and I was wrong in almost all of my guesses, and i was certainly surprised by this.
I loved all the characters as they were so believable.
I couldn't put this book down
Definitely one to read.
