#WhatSheSawLastNight….what DID she see last night?! @OrionBooks @Tr4cyF3nt0n @MasonCrossBooks

Still plagued by frequent migraines due to my chronic illnesses, so please do bear with me!

Many thanks to Orion and Tracy for the blog tour invite and ARC, I am delighted to be on the blog tour today for Mason Cross.

A secret that could kill her.

A truth no one believes…

Jenny Bowen is going home. Boarding the Caledonian Sleeper, all she wants to do is forget about her upcoming divorce and relax on the ten-hour journey through the night.

In her search for her cabin, Jenny helps a panicked woman with a young girl she assumes to be her daughter. Then she finds her compartment and falls straight to sleep.

Waking in the night, Jenny discovers the woman dead in her cabin … but there’s no sign of the little girl. The train company have no record of a child being booked on the train, and CCTV shows the dead woman boarding alone.

The police don’t believe Jenny, and soon she tries to put the incident out of her head and tells herself that everyone else is right: she must have imagined the little girl.

But deep down, she knows that isn’t the truth.

What does TWG think?

I don’t really know what to make of this!!! All I know for certain is that I don’t really want to go on the Caledonian Sleeper anytime soon….!

Jenny had everything crossed that her journey on the sleeper was going to be an uneventful. However, it ended up proving to be the complete opposite and now theres a mystery to solve when a woman ends up dead.

How, what, when, why?!

This book made me think ‘erm, what?!’ more than once! The whole dead woman, mysterious child thing just came out of nowhere and blindsided me a little! I mean, the CCTV showed that the woman boarded the sleeper alone, so where on Earth was the child Jenny allegedly saw?

The suspense level in this book is second to none. Mason Cross is brilliant at keeping his readers on their toes – I was really impressed by the whole vibe of the story!

Jenny, for me, was such a questionable character. Her personality was far from likeable, and she annoyed me more times than she didn’t. However in a weird way, her ice cold vibe worked with the overall consensus of the storyline so, it just goes to show that main characters dont have to be 100% likeable for the storyline to work.

Despite adoring the suspense and the darkness of the storyline, I still found myself a little on the fence because there were times where I felt that the storyline overstretched the believable factor. Now I know that in fiction you can write whatever you choose, and extend the truth as far as you feel you’re able to, yet for me, I still need to believe some aspects of the book. Either that, or I need to be put into a false sense of security and feel like I believe.

Overall, on the fence I sit, however I do think that Mason Cross is brilliant at his craft, and I would be genuinely surprised if ‘dark master’ wasnt his middle name! A real dark, chilling and mysterious read.
