Huge thanks, as always, to Alainna and Team Orion for the blog tour invite (and ARC) – I am delighted to be today’s stop on the ‘Ask Me No Questions’ blog tour!
TWINS HAVE A SPECIAL BOND SOMEONE WILL KILL TO BREAK . . .
As children, Gabi and Thea were like most identical twin sisters: inseparable.
Now adults, Gabi is in a coma following a vicious attack and Thea claims that, until last week, the twins hadn’t spoken in fifteen years. But what caused such a significant separation? And what brought them back together so suddenly?
Digging into the case, DS Kate Munro is convinced the crime was personal. Now she must separate the truth from the lies and find the dangerous assailant – before any more blood is spilled . . .
What does TWG think?
Bloody hell woman!! Louisa De Lange certainly knows how to kick off a series!!! I honestly think that my brain is still fried from reading ‘Ask Me No Questions’ – it is an absolute head funk of a novel that hooked me from the get go. I didn’t know who to believe, what to believe….nothing.
Kate Munro wasn’t like any other DS I had read about, in fact she seemed to be so far away from the type of DS she should be, I was surprised that she was running the show so to speak. No offence to her, of course. She was just incredibly aloof and un-DS like and, weirdly enough, it made me more intrigued about what will happen next in the series. Would Kate end up being stronger on her feet? Or would her own personal issues end up causing her even more trouble than before?
In ‘Ask Me No Questions’, Kate Munro wasn’t the only character to watch, in fact there were several characters who needed to have eyes constantly on them due to their sporadic behaviours and lack of honesty. The two characters who were at the forefront of the storyline were identical twin sisters, Gabi and Thea. Despite being identical twins and being close as children, their relationship as adults ended up being incredibly tense so, when Gabi ends up in the hospital after being attacked, Thea finds herself in DS Kate Munro’s eye line. Naturally.
Imagine the T.V show, Jeremy Kyle, and then put that next to ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ and you STILL wouldn’t be close to the level of secrets that were in this book. Like I said above, I really didn’t know what to believe. I think it was because I ended up becoming so invested in the storyline, in the characters, and in the investigation itself, I think I ended up blindsided and perhaps refused to see things that were right under my nose. I’m not sure. All I know is that Louisa De Lange has written a belter of a novel that ended up getting right under my skin. It was such a cleverly crafted novel! I have no idea how the author managed to entwine so many different versions of events without messing up, but she did and she did it brilliantly.
The intensity of ‘Ask Me No Questions’ was a perfect match to the vibe of the story as well – I really enjoyed this book and I cannot WAIT to find out what is next in store for Kate Munro, and how much trouble she lands herself in this time!
Intense, twisted, secretive and full of surprises – an incredible start to a new series!
