Dying To See You by Kerena Swan #BlogBlitz #Review

Today I am delighted to share my 4 star review for Dying To See You by Kerena Swan on Blog Tour which is out now

The Book
He’s Watching, He’s Waiting, She’s next.

When Sophie is told to organize care for elderly Ivy, she is unaware that by meeting Max, Ivy’s grandson, her life will be turned upside down.

As Sophie’s involvement with Max and Ivy increases she becomes more distracted by her own problems.

Because Sophie is certain she is being watched.

For a while Ivy relishes Sophie’s attention, but soon grows concerned of the budding relationship between Sophie and Max.

Torn between Sophie and his grandmother, Max cuts ties with the care agency, leaving Sophie hurt and confused.

Meanwhile there is a murderer killing women in the area.

Is there a link between Sophie’s stalker and the killings?

Soon Sophie will learn that appearances can be deceiving.

My Thoughts

Dying To See you is the author’s debut novel and what a cracking debut it is. Which follows the story of single parent Sophie who meets Max grandson of Ivy with only a hand full of characters to get involved with the author weaves a creepy story about  relationships, love and obsession.

I must say this story so isn’t what I thought it was going to be after reading the first chapter. This book a face paced read which is full of mystery, suspense and some twists and turns. We are made aware who the killer is at the start which certainly kept my attention wanting to know what was going to happen to next.

The characters are really well developed and it is written in way that you cannot help but get involved with them. With some… did they really do that moments. The story is nicely wrapped up and answered all the questions that you have been asking. 

I loved the author’s style of writing and I am looking forward to reading what Kerena has in store for us next.  Fans of psychological thrillers are going to love it. 

Thank you to Sarah Hardy for inviting me to take part in another fab tour

Author Bio:

Kerena lives on the Bedfordshire/Buckingham border with her husband, son and two cats. She also has two daughters and two granddaughters.

12 years ago, following a life-time career in social work and management, Kerena set up a company providing support for children with disabilities.  Highly successful, the company is rated ‘Outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission, which Kerena considers her greatest achievement thus far. However, following serious illnesses last year she decided to attempt to fulfil her long-held ambition of writing a novel and getting it published. She has yet to tick off other achievements from her bucket list such as playing Moonlight Sonata on the piano all the way through and being stopped for speeding in a red Ferrari at the age of 80 but can tick off building a brick wall.

After many years of writing professionally in the course of her work, Kerena has discovered the exhilaration of writing fiction and can be found at all hours in front of her computer.  Her husband (worried about his dinners being cooked) has threatened divorce if she writes another book so she’s told him she will write a trilogy.

‘Dying to See You’ is Kerena’s first novel and she has already started work on her second book ‘I Let You In’.  Drawing on her extensive knowledge and experience in the problematic world of social work, Kerena adds a unique angle to the domestic noir genre.
