Today I’m on the tour for From Sorrows Hold by Jonathan Peace, thank you to Rebecca at Hobeck Books for organising it and inviting me to take part and thank you for my copy.
Synopsis: December, 1988
What should be a time of excitement and joy is forever tainted when a teenager’s body is found in the graveyard of Ossett’s Holy Trinity Church.
A suspected suicide
As they respond to the devastating event, WDCs Louise Miller and Elizabeth Hines, together with psychologist Karla Hayes, each use their own experiences of suicide to help the wider community as it struggles to understand the terrible choice that was made.
Another missing teenager
Louise starts to believe there is something even more sinister behind the events…
My Rating: 🐧🐧🐧🐧
My Thoughts: This is the second book in the Detective Louise Miller series and it reminded me why I loved the other one so much!
We’re following Louise Miller and Beth Hines as yet again they form a formidable team to get to the truth, they don’t always see eye to eye but they’re not afraid to have it out with each other and discuss things.
Louise is at church with her Aunt when a young girl walks in covered in blood, Louise jumps straight into work mode and it doesn’t take her long to discover the body of a young boy who it appears has taken his own life.. although for Louise things are never that simple so despite everyone around her telling her she’s wrong, she’s determined to dig a little deeper.
Throw in a protest group who feel that suicide is wrong and the families of those that commit such an act should be punished, a prostitute, and a whole host of characters who seem to know more than they are letting on and what you have is a book that is impossible to put down & the twists just keep coming right until the very end.
I can’t wait for book 3!
