I’m thrilled to be kicking off the blog tour today for Death Wish and would like to wish Linda a very Happy Publication day! 🙂 xx

My Review
OMG I adored this book! Have you ever felt like being a fly on the wall between neighbours, listening in to all the gossip, well if so this is the book for you.
Two families, each with their own issues find themselves rapidly interlinked by circumstances. There are similarities in the family dynamics whereby ‘mother’ is living with them.
 
Martine, Stu and eight year old Joya are a normal happy family, then mum Vee comes to live there and due to her Huntingdon’s illness everything changes. Martine becomes resentful with her caring role, arguments arise between her and Stu, Joya feels torn between her warring parents and seeks friendship with the young couple next door.
 
Ashley and Leo take Joya under their wing but is it enough to keep her happy and safe?
 
Leo rather foolishly embarks on a business venture with Ashley’s mum Eleanor, she is the mother-in-law from hell and she is not an easy or welcome guest when she insists on moving into their annex.
 
There are so many fabulous believable characters in Death Wish I found myself swapping my opinion several times on who I felt sorry for. Joya was probably my favourite, from a child’s point of view her life was altering rapidly in a scary way and it’s so easy to see why she was distraught at times and behaved the way she did. I must say her rabbit was incredibly well fed!
 
There are several topics covered which made this an engaging read for me, without giving any spoilers I found the mental health, adoption and euthanasia sections very sensitively dealt with. Add in secrets, friendship, family and death and that makes a superb concoction for a story.
This is a mesmerising book which had me hooked from the onset .. highly recommended. Now I am desperate to go back and read all of Linda’s other books which I have my eye on.
 
Huge thanks to Linda and Sarah at Bloodhound Books for my copy which I read and reviewed voluntarily and the opportunity to take part in the blog tour.
