I am delighted to share my review with you today for The Last Time She Died by Zoe Sharp…..Which is out now!
The sun is shining as the Fitzroy family gather to mourn the death of their beloved husband and stepfather. No one but Byron sees the young woman with the white-blonde hair hiding in the shadows. She watches them for a moment, then she is gone.
While the family is at the funeral, the woman breaks into their home. She waits for them to come home, for the police to be called. When she is arrested, she smiles calmly at the outraged people around her and says she has every right to be there. She is Blake Claremont, the late Mr Fitzroy’s daughter.
But Blake vanished ten years ago. She is presumed dead.
Detective John Byron is currently on leave, but he has been asked by his old force to take a quiet look into Fitzroy’s death. While he’s there, he can’t help investigating the mysterious new arrival too. She certainly seems to know things that an outsider could not, and the family welcome her back into her home.
Not long after, someone shoots at her on a quiet rural road… Because whatever secrets the woman is keeping, certain people do not want them revealed.
And those same people are sure Blake isn’t who she claims to be… because they killed and buried her the night she disappeared.
From the bestselling author of the Charlie Fox books, The Last Time She Died will have you gripped until the last mind-blowing moment. Fans of Cara Hunter, Kendra Elliot and Rachel Abbott will love this action-packed crime thriller.
Brand new author for me and the first book in the Blake and Byron Thrillers series. Your probably wondering why I have never read any books by this author before! Well I have a few on my pile and I just haven’t got to them yet. So this book was the perfect place for me to start.
In this story we meet Blake who returns home after being missing for ten years she was presumed dead. So a shocker for everyone when she breaks into the family home, while they are at a funeral . With many questions that need answered. Detective John Bryon is called to to investigate, but now he has something else to solve. I found myself totally addicted to this story.
It is a brilliant opening to a new series and I really like the authors writing style. The story is complex so I am glad that I listened to it. I am a person who likes to read a book in one sitting and these days I dont have the time. Dipping in and out of an audio is so much easier than reading sometimes. I was so addicted to this book I listened to it in just a few days, bearing in mind it is just over 10 hours long!
The Last Time She Died is full of mystery and suspense and I am looking forward to the next book in the series.
I would like thank Bookouture for a copy. All thoughts are my own and not biased in anyway.
