A rollicking good read

This is a rollicking read! It stretches credulity a number of times, but, it's well written and so fast paced.

I don't want to say too much about the story, as it's best read knowing little. However, it's about a family dealing with bereavement who get pulled into a dangerous situation. Tom is the father who works for Lionel. Rachel is Tom's wife who also has a link to Lionel and Holly is their young daughter. Lionel persuades the family (following a harrowing incident) to rest and recuperate at his remote lodge in Scotland. This is where things go awry - well, more awry than already experienced by this poor family! There's action aplenty and it's definitely not a relaxing read! However, if you're up for the ride, it's a good one.

It's definitely a page turner. There were a number of times when I felt slightly frustrated, either by the at times ridiculous state of affairs (and individuals reaction to them) and others at the far fetched nature of the situation. For this reason, it's a 3.5 for me. The perfect read if you just want to lose yourself in a good, easy, story.
I'd normally score a 3* GOOD for a 3.5 but, it's a book that's stayed with me and so, for that reason I've increased my score to solid 4*

Thanks so much to #Netgalley and #Panpublishers for an eARC of this book in exchange for an honest, fair and unbiased review. Congratulations to the author.

Should have been a short story

Very little content although an idea was there but the whole book was padded out with running through the woods. I struggled to finish it as the repetition got boring. An action book - not a thriller??
