My gosh its busy on TWG today! Blog tour three of the day is for ‘The Last Stage’ by Louise Voss. Many thanks to Anne Cater and Orenda for the blog tour invite. Here is my review:
At the peak of her career as lead singer of a legendary 1980s indie band, Meredith Vincent was driven off the international stage by a horrific incident. Now living a quiet existence in a cottage on the grounds of an old stately home, she has put her past behind her and come to terms with her new life.
When a body is found in the manicured gardens of her home, and a series of inexplicable and unsettling events begins to occur, it becomes clear that someone is watching, someone who knows who she is … Someone who wants vengeance.
And this is only the beginning…
What does TWG think?
Gosh – where to begin!!
This book is uniqueness at its finest; a compelling, seductively suspenseful read which had me bending over backwards to finish.
Louise Voss has incorporated a lot of things into one storyline, and instead of the entire book coming across as overwhelming or too much too soon, the author made it work by allowing her characters to put a spell on me.
The idea of stepping back in time with Meredith and what happened THAT night, was very cleverly done and moved the story seamlessly into the present day where we find out what the aftermath of that horrific night ended up being.
I had absolutely no idea who or what was behind everything, but the thrill of finding out kept me on the edge of my seat. ‘The Last Stage’ may be a dark and psychologically twisted read, however it certainly deserves a place on it’s very own stage to have it’s time in the spotlight. Brilliant storytelling of a outstnading and compulsive read – whats not to like!!
