Dear Amy – Helen Callaghan✶✶✶✶✶

dear amy.png

Margot Lewis is the agony aunt for The Cambridge Examiner. Her advice column, Dear Amy, gets all kinds of letters – but none like the one she’s just received: Dear Amy,
I don’t know where I am. I’ve been kidnapped and am being held prisoner by a strange man. I’m afraid he’ll kill me.
Please help me soon,
Bethan Avery

Bethan Avery has been missing for years. This is surely some cruel hoax. But, as more letters arrive, they contain information that was never made public. How is this happening? Answering this question will cost Margot everything.

I must start by saying a big thank you to Netgalley and the publishers for letting me review this story. I was intrigued as I had heard a lot of great things about this story and many readers were looking forward to it being released. I must say I was not disappointed. I was hooked. I loved it. This story will mess with your mind! I don’t like giving anything away about stories as I’d rather you find out for yourself but I did not expect anything that happened throughout this book (which is a good thing). I found it an easy to read story which had me devouring it until the end and written well. I personally think it would make an excellent film too. If you loved Gone Girl I would recommend you read this story! I would highly recommend this story to you all but especially for readers who enjoy a freaky thriller, suspense, mystery, contemporary and crime filled story. This story will make sure you never run away from home again! Girl’s beware! Fantastic.
Enjoy, I did!

But Gray is already facing a series of deaths connected to legal highs and a local fairground, as well as dealing with his girlfriend Marie’s bizarre behaviour. As Gray investigates the crimes, he suspects a horrifying link between Marie and the man on the run – but how can he confront her when she’s pushing him away? As a terrified Marie is pulled back into a violent past she thought she’d escaped, she makes an irrevocable decision. And when events come to a head at a house party on Willow Walk, can Gray piece together the puzzle in time to stop the sleepy town of Banktoun being rocked by tragedy once more?

I must start by thanking TBC and the author for letting letting me review this fab story. I awarded five stars as I really enjoyed it, was hooked from start to finish and felt like I was in the story myself. I would highly recommend this story to you all! It is well written, contains short chapters and will hold your attention until the end. This is another story which focuses on a set a twins, which I personally enjoy reading stories about twins it is a subject that I have always been interested in and this story did not disappoint me! There have been many great reviews published for this story so if you don’t believe me, check it out for yourself. Willow Walk would make the perfect story for readers who enjoy a brilliant thriller, mystery, suspense, crime and drama filled story. I also think it would appeal to young adult readers as this stories does have parties, drugs, alcohol, boyfriends/girlfriends and a fair. We have all been young once haven’t we?
Think I have found a new author to indulge in. This is the first book I have read by SJI Holliday. Enjoy, I loved it.
