#BLOGTOUR #REVIEW – The Lucky Eight by Shelia Bugler – @sheilab10 @canelo_co @CaneloCrime @lovebooksgroup @lovebookstours #TheLuckyEight

I’m on the blog tour today for The Lucky Eight by Shelia Bugler, for those eagle eyed among you, the poster isn’t wrong I’m posting a day late! – thank you to Kelly at Love Books Tours for organising it and inviting me to take part & thank you to the author and the publisher for my copy.

Pages: 277

Synopsis: When the plane crashed, 160 people perished. Now someone is killing off the survivors.
Five years ago, a horrific airline disaster made headlines around the world. On the anniversary of the fatal crash, a number of those who were spared gather to mark the occasion. By morning, Nick Gilbert, a celebrity chef and one of the party, lies dead. Detective Rachel Lewis leads the investigation and within days another survivor is stabbed to death. It seems certain that a killer is targeting the lucky eight.

Clodagh Kinsella recovered from the injuries she sustained in the crash, but lost her sister that day. The bereavement shared by Clodagh and her sister’s husband led them to a romance of their own. Yet lately, Clodagh knows something isn’t right. As the noose tightens on the group and Rachel comes across more questions than answers, it’s only a matter of time before Clodagh will have to face the consequences of a mistake she made before the plane went down…

My Rating: 🐧🐧🐧🐧

My Thoughts; the synopsis of this book drew me in straight away, it just really intrigued me!

The 8 survivors of a plane crash that killed 160 others meet up once a year on the anniversary of the plane crash to remember the ones who didn’t survive but also celebrate their survival – normally these get togethers go without a hitch, but this time one of them is found dead on the beach, did he fall off the edge, or was he murdered?

The story is told from 2 different perspectives, one from Clodagh who is one of the survivors and the one who found the victim and the other from Rachel who is the lead detective in the investigation, although I appreciated both sides, I did find myself getting lost in the story more within Clodaghs chapters!

I loved that Clodagh was convinced that she held the answer to what had happened that night and why, if only she could remember! She had problems with her memory which were caused by the crash, but she starts getting flashbacks of not only that night but of the day of the crash too, can she piece them all together before someone else gets hurt?

None of the survivors knew who they could trust or where to turn, they’re left constantly doubting eachother and the guests that some of the survivors brought with them – is the killer among them or is it someone else entirely?

At times I did find myself getting a little muddled with all the different characters, but I think that was more my issue than anything the author did wrong.

This was a good solid thriller, with short snappy chapters which are my fave, it’s one that I highly recommend although it may make you think twice about getting on a plane for a while 😂
