BLOG TOUR ~ The Lingering by S.J.I. Holliday

Hi Everyone,

Today is my stop on the Blog Tour for The Lingering by S.J.I. Holliday where I've a review of her latest novel. I was thrilled to be asked by Anne Cater from Random Book Tours to take part along with some other fab book bloggers. You can find out who else is taking part in this fabulous Blog Tour at the end of the review so without further ado, here it is:

With huge thanks to Karen Sullivan, S.J.I. Holliday and Anne Cater I received a copy of this in exchange for an honest review..........

Married couple Jack and Ali Gardiner move to a self-sufficient spiritual commune in the English Fens, desperate for fresh start. The local village is known for the witches who once resided there and Rosalind House, where the commune has been established, is a former psychiatric home, with a disturbing history.

When Jack and Ali arrive, a chain of unexpected and unexplained events is set off, and it becomes clear that they are not all that they seem. As the residents become twitchy, and the villagers suspicious, events from the past come back to haunt them, and someone is seeking retribution…

Well, where do I start with this..........I didn't like it, I abolutely LOVED it. Jack is an ex-police officer and Ali a nurse but what led to Jack having to give up his role in the police force, well you need to read on to see why. The Lingering is told from 3 different characters within the book, Ali, Angela and Smeaton who is part of Rosalind House. It was such a creepy read, full of thrills and spills, parts were spine-tingling and terrifying and I don't think that you'll want to enter your bath for a long time after finishing this book, well I know I won't anyway. I could feel my heart beating while reading certain parts of it too, especially those footprints and the ending of it too but I don't want to say anymore other than go and buy this book immediately and prepare to be scared and freaked out. The Lingering has to be another one of my favourite books that I've read this year.

Then Lingering is available in all good bookshops, libraries, on audio and on Kindle where it is currently £4.31 at the time of publication of this review. Go and get it you won't regret it.
