BLOG TOUR ~ Lake Child by Isabel Ashtown

Hi everyone,

Today is my stop on the final day of the Blog Tour for Lake Child by Isabel Ashdown where I've a review of her latest novel. I was thrilled to be asked by Tracy Fenton of Compulsive Readers who organised this tour in conjunction with Trapeze Books to take part along with some other fab book bloggers. You can find out who else took part in this fabulous Blog Tour at the end of the review so without further ado, here it is:

You trust your family? They love you? Don't they?

Eva Olsen is a seventeen year old girl who was involved in a serious car accident where she was in a coma and can't really remember what happened that fateful night. She wakes up in her bed in the attic where her devoted parents are caring for her, she's been bed bound for what seems to be quite a while and is locked into the room when her parents are not with her in the room, but why?? As her memory starts to return slowly she starts to remember certain elements of the night in question but she begins to doubt what her parents are telling her about the accident and decides that she wants to find out the truth and the only way that can happen is if she escapes from her parents house. But what if someone doesn't want her to find out??

Well, where do I start with my review other than I absolutely LOVED it, it was so good. I was on the edge of both my seat and my bed whilst reading it & couldn't turn the pages quick enough. It was like peeling an onion with layer upon layer of secrets, lies and twists been revealed and when you thought you had everything worked out there was other layers revealed. There is also another back story running through the storyline which comes together very nicely as the story goes on. This story had it all from family, betrayal, secrets, lies, protectiveness to more sensitive and hard-hitting issues which were handled quite sensitively and I found I had a little tear in my eye at the end.

A very clever and atmospheric psychological thriller set in a remote valley town in the heart of the forest of Norway's ancient fjords.

Lake Child is available from all good bookstores, libraries, on audio and on Kindle where it is currently £3.99 at the time of publication of this review.
