Blink by K.L. Slater #BlogTour @bookouture

Today I’m delighted to be on the blog tour for Blink by K.L. Slater.

About this book…

What if the person you love most in the world was in terrible danger … because of you?

Three years ago, Toni’s five-year-old daughter Evie disappeared after leaving school. The police have never been able to find her. There were no witnesses, no CCTV, no trace.

But Toni believes her daughter is alive. And as she begins to silently piece together her memories, the full story of the past begins to reveal itself, and a devastating truth.

Toni’s mind is trapped in a world of silence, her only chance to save herself is to manage the impossible. She must find a way to make herself heard. She must find her daughter.

A compelling, gripping thriller with a breathtaking twist that will keep you awake until the early hours. Perfect for fans of The Girl on the Train, Behind Closed Doors and The Sister.

My review…

So last night I couldn’t sleep so decided to start this book. Two hours later I was downstairs making myself a coffee so I could stay awake to finish this brilliantly gripping and twisty tale of a mother trying to solve her daughter’s disappearance. I started off telling myself “just one more chapter” then I gave up and totally abandoned myself to the fact that this book was not getting put down till the very last word was read.

We have all been here I think, terrified of being late somewhere to pick up a child and something bad happening so that there is no one there when you arrive -it has certainly been a recurring nightmare of mine! And I have to say that A LOT of books play on this greatest fear as a parent, which is why there are so many missing child books out there. So to stand out from the crowd, there has to be something very unique and special about this sub-genre, the development of the plot especially. And here K.L. Slater really does pull the rabbit out of the hat with her take of a family in turmoil, but beware the “smoke and mirrors” as this book will totally mess with your mind!

I enjoyed Safe With Me, the authors previous psychological suspense, but this one resonated with me far more than I had expected it to and I loved it far more than I was expecting to. Her writing style draws you right from the very first page, creating an unputdownable mystery where you just have to know what happened to Evie and why. So be prepared to start this only if you have nothing else to do. You have been warned!

Many thanks to Bookouture for my review copy of Blink.

Blink: A psychological thriller with a killer twist you’ll never forget is published by Bookouture on February 16th and available to purchase from Amazon UK.

I am a Norfolk girl living in leafy Cheshire with my grumpy Scotsman. A mum and nana who lives for my family but who is also addicted to reading (and Marmite!) I will read almost anything but my preferred genres to review are psychological thrillers, crime procedural novels or women's fiction. My kindle is my life but I also have a substantial bookshelf in my cosy reading room where I can go to escape the stresses of family life with plenty of tea and chocolate. I am a member of netgalley and bookbridg. I review on Amazon, where I'm a Top 500 reviewer, and Goodreads. You can always find me over on Twitter @jocatrobertson for any review requests.

  1. This book was so good, unique, and intense I lost sleep to finish it! I love how the author handled the timelines and different POVs, it was never confusing, but always taut!
