Halfway now! Third blog tour of the day is for ‘Say You’re Sorry’ by Karen Rose. Many thanks, as always, to RandomThingsTours for the blog tour invite, and thank you to Headline Books for the ARC. Here is my review:
Special Agent Gideon Reynolds has tried hard to put his past behind him. He escaped the violence of his cult upbringing when he was just thirteen, and since then routine and discipline have been his way of making sense of the world. But when a petite blonde woman crashes into his life, he begins to realize that a little bit of chaos might not be so bad.
Daisy Dawson has had more than her fair share of pain too – but she’s done being a victim. Daisy’s determined to explore every new experience she can – including getting to know the dark and serious FBI investigator she meets when she fights off a masked attacker one night.
It soon becomes clear that Daisy’s attack was just the beginning. Now the bloodied bodies of young women are showing up all over California, and, as Gideon tries to find the killer, it’s clear that Daisy is in more danger than they ever realised…
What does TWG think?
Not only is ‘Say You’re Sorry’ a brand new series, it is the very first book written by Karen Rose that I have ever read. Not bad for one book!
Oh I was hooked straight away!! Gideon didn’t strike me as your ‘typical’ agent and I felt that that added to his charm and likability factor a lot more. Don’t get me wrong, his character seemed to be a tough nut to crack at times, but again that added another dimension to the novel which gripped me even more. Why wasn’t he so forthcoming? What was he trying to ‘run’ from?
There is a lot more to this storyline that meets the eye, a lot of which takes a while to become clear to the readers. I loved the intense level of suspense and the feeling of not knowing was around the corner. I felt that the characters were brilliantly crafted and absolutely perfect for the overall vibe of the book as their uncertainty allowed goosebumps to fill my body.
I am being intentionally vague with my review as ‘Say You’re Sorry’ is a very complex and interlinked storyline, so I don’t want to give anything away to jeopardise anyone else’s opinions of the book.
What I will say, however, is that I am shocked at myself for not picking up a Karen Rose novel until now, and I am very looking forward to delving further into this new series.
A complex, crafty, and highly suspenseful novel – a fantastic start to a new series!
