However, characters are flat and the story feels rushed.
Enjoyed the "bad guys" but again lacking development.
Nice, easy read. Entertaining, overall would recommend.
What a gripping story line!
I had absolutely every empathy for Julia. She is leaving her husband as she has had enough of and is determined to do the best for her and her daughter. On leaving the family home, even her worst nightmares could not come close to what happens next. She has to stay strong for her daughter regardless of how scared she is feeling herself.
To be taken hostage by two despicable men like Julia and her daughter are, I could very much feel the horror and anxiety that they were feeling. Julia knows that the two men are not going to let them just walk away and it is very much a survival of the smartest as she has to outwit them in the hop of every getting away.
Ian annoyed me as he is quite weak but I have to say I did feel sorry for him when the police are giving him a hard time. In a way I felt he deserved it but then he obviously loves his wife and daughter very much and is determined to get to the bottom of it all.
As for if Julia and her daughter get out of their horrible situation alive, you will need to read it for yourself.
Kill or Die is an edge of your seat read that had me gripped all the way through. It will have you wanting to lock all the doors and windows. A great nail biter of a read and can’t wait to read more by the author.
Julia is married to a rather weak fella, Ian, and one night she has had enough. She packs a few suitcases, grabs their eight year old daughter and leaves him. Unfortunately for her, just as she is leaving her driveway she collides with a couple of criminals who have just finished robbing the house next door. The burglars kidnap the pair and then the tension really starts to mount. How are these two going to get safely home again and will her husband even notice she is missing?
I think this book has some great descriptions of human nature; good, bad and really ugly, and what people do when their backs are against the wall. The characters were beautifully written and I got fully immersed in the emotions and the tension of the various situations they all found themselves in. I loved that there wasn't an excess of description though and so my imagination was left to fill in the blanks.
Highly recommended book from me :)
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. Thank you to Bloodhound Books.
I felt so awful for Julia, she’s already in a bad place the night that she decides she has had enough of her husband’s scheming ways and the situation she finds herself in was completely terrifying. It reminded me a bit of An Impossible Dilemma in that it found a mother in an awful situation where she’s forced to do terrible things to keep her child safe.
I read this is one single “holding my breath the entire time sitting.” It was relentlessly paced with tons of action and suspense. I was praying that Julia and Lucy would escape unscathed and was shocked by the way things turned out in the end. This is the authors first adult novel as she has previously written children’s books and it was a fantastic debut into the mystery/thriller genre.
Atmospheric, tense, filled with pure maternal instinct how far would you go to protect your child?
Julia has had enough of her husband Ian’s philandering and decides it’s time to leave. She pulls eight year old Lucy drowsily from her bed so they can leave under cover of darkness and before he arrives home. The night is foggy, visibility poor and she collides with another vehicle.
This is the beginning of the living nightmare. Real edge of your seat panic, will Julia and Lucy survive the fate that awaits them. Will Ian realise they have gone?
I instantly bonded with Julia, could relate to her feelings and overwhelming protective nature. Lucy was an innocent child but quite streetwise for her age.
Ian is portrayed as the guilty party and for a lot of the book I felt he got what he deserved but deep down he has love remaining for his family .. maybe he can blame his actions on a mid-life crisis!
The villains of the story Vincent and Nash are as creepy as hell.
This is superbly paced, easy to read and provides all the chills. I won’t give any spoilers .. but if you had the to make the decision ‘kill or die’ to keep your child from harm I know what I would do!
Thanks so much to the author and Bloodhound books for the opportunity to read and be a part of the blog tour .. I reviewed voluntarily.
