#TellMeLies, tell me sweet little lies #blogtour @edjamesauthor @bookouture

Huge thanks to Bookouture for inviting me to take part in the blog tour for Ed James and ‘Tell Me Lies’, and for the ARC. I am delighted to be closing the tour this evening with a review:

Megan Holliday opens her eyes and finds herself slumped on her doorstep. The last thing she remembers is being in the car with her two kids. She sees a handwritten note on her lap – Don’t call the police. It’s then that she realises her car is missing, and her children are gone…

Leading the FBI’s Child Abduction Rapid Deployment team, FBI agent Max Carter will stop at nothing to find children taken from their families. After all, he was once one of those taken children, so he knows exactly what’s at stake. When he hears that a young senator’s two children have been abducted and their mother left for dead, he races to the Holliday family home in Washington State.

Facing a wall of police cruisers and blacked-out SUVs, Carter quickly uncovers the facts. Megan Holliday was ambushed by a man with a gun as she returned home from taking her kids out for ice cream. Bound and drugged, the attacker left her unconscious on the doorstep with the sinister note on her lap.

As Senator Christopher Holliday walks through the halls of the US Federal Building in Seattle, his phone beeps with an alert. Frustrated by the interruption, he takes a cursory glance and is horrified by the image on the screen – his two children, Brandon and Avery, unconscious. The message he gets simply reads Meet me or they die.

When Agent Carter tries to make contact with the busy senator, it seems the politician has gone missing, fleeing from the Federal Building and abandoning his distraught wife. If Carter knows one thing, it’s that Holliday has something to hide. And he just became Carter’s prime suspect.

What does TWG think?

Have you ever, after reading or watching something which makes you content, rubbed your hands together with a squeal? I’m hoping some of you say yes now as I sound odd, but omg that was me! I am SO excited to find out where the series goes from here! For a start to a new series, ‘Tell Me Lies’ ticked my boxes in terms of suspense, intrigue, and pace, whilst also leaving me to question each of the characters motives….including Detective Carter. Of course I hoped that the detective would be above board, but in these types of books you just cant be too sure now, can you?

A storyline containing missing children always makes my heart skip a beat. I try not to keep my mind close regarding the topic, and I try to ensure that my own emotions dont get too entangled into what the author is trying to convey with their storyline. Its easier said than done though, which I am sure you can appreciate! I think my own thoughts on the subject enabled me to become invested more quickly in the storyline, keeping everything crossed for an ending I of course would like!

I flew through ‘Tell Me Lies’ like a little dog on heat! I couldnt get over how well everything just flowed! It’s safe to say, and there are no lies from me here, that I bloody loved this book, especially the character development. The personalities of the detective and his colleagues left me wanting more and I still stand by what I said at the beginning – I cannot wait to see where the series goes from here! You are all in for a treat with this one!
