#BlogTour #Review ~ Nemesister by Sophie Jonas-Hill @SophieJonasHill @urbanepub @annebonnybook

Welcome to my stop on the Nemesister blog tour. I was originally just going to post a spotlight on this book but it intrigued me so much that I squeezed in a review!

An American Gothic thriller of deception and obsession, slicked in sweat and set in the swamps of Louisiana.

It’s a psychological mystery where the female protagonist stumbles into a deserted shack with no memory but a gun in her hand. There she meets an apparent stranger, Red, and the two find themselves isolated and under attack from unseen assailants.

Barricaded inside for a sweltering night, cabin fever sets in and brings her flashes of insight which might be memory or vision as the swamp sighs and moans around her.

Exploring in the dark she finds hidden keys that seem to reveal her identity and that of her mysterious host, but which are the more dangerous – the lies he’s told her, or the ones she’s told herself?

My Review

The blurb and the cover of Nemesister intrigued me enough to take a peek inside. This is a book that will make your skin crawl as you put yourself into the creepy situation .. young woman shows up at a fishing shack in the middle of nowhere injured she has no clue who she is, why she is armed or WTF she is doing. The shack isn’t empty though it is inhabited by a guy “call me Red” .. that sets the scene for a scary read.

There are so many twists and turns in this book that you will need to concentrate to grasp who all the characters are but there is a sh*t ton of action! 

It reminded me of all the old horror movie cliches rolled into one .. who can you trust including yourself! Set mainly in Louisiana prepare yourself for some good ole country drawl which just adds to the tension and mystic. 

As the woman slowly regains her memory we slowly unfurl events via flashbacks .. but is anyone who they think they are or is human nature so peculiar that the whole tale becomes bizarre? This will keep you glued and unprepared for the ending. It was a different style of writing for me but once I adapted I became fully involved and enjoyed Nemesister which is dark, deep and suitably chilling.

Thanks to Sophie and Urbane for my copy and Abby for inviting me to take part in the blog tour. I read and reviewed voluntarily.
