Check out my #BookReview for #Ransomed by @writer_MAHunter for @netgalleynovember


Some secrets are too big to bury…

Invetigative journalist Emma Hunter never thought she’d be a bestselling author. Especially not for a blistering expose of the brutal horrors commited at an orphanage.

Some secrets breed in the dark…

All she wants is to return home to the anchoring salt air and solitude of Weymouth where questions still fester unanswered and a twenty-year-old secret binds her to the beach.

and some of them always escape…

But then she finds herself sucked into the chaos of another cold case and soon realises the search for the missing girl will not only unearth the rot ravaging the safety of children across the south of England, but could even solve the mystery that has tortured her since she was seven years old…

This book has been sat on my Netgalley shelf for too long. Probably one of the first books i requested, and now i am asking myself why? This book was a FANTASTIC, gripping read. From beginning right until the very last word with the biggest cliffhanger i have ever read.

The story mainly follows Emma, in her quest to find her sister but more prominantly the Hilliards in trying to find their missing daughter who went missing a year earlier. The case is closed, the police couldnt solve it, so why can Emma Hunter? Well to find that out you definitley need to read the book, but what i can tell you is Emma Hunter is an AMAZING character, she is very intelligent, and will not stop until she finds the answers she needs, but she is quiet and introverted. A best selling author and hating fame. Such a relateable character especially for us bookworms who are more often than not introverted and very socially anxious.

The book was written incredibly well – i had no idea where the story would go or that anything could be amiss with any of the family members until it hit me slap, bang in the face with the words. Shocked was an understatement. I was speechless. I couldnt believe it, and how Emma came to the correct conclusion out of nowhere still baffles me.

This book had a steady pace throughout, constantly keeping you on the edge of your seat – until the end. The last 5% – Sheesh i’m not going to lie was the best 5% i have read in any book. It is shock after shock and then THE END. Such clever writing because although i enjoyed the book anyway and would definitely look into the following books in the series now i HAVE to. I NEED to know how the rest of it works out.

An absolutley amazing book that i would 100% recommend to any thriller fan.
