The Cornish Retribution by Amanda James @Bloodhoundbook #bookreview

Happy Tuesday book friends!

Busy day on the blog today! This is my last post another fabulous blog tour for this twisty read! A huge thank you to Emma for my invitation!💕

John Nicholl - White is the Coldest Color_korica probaAfter a tragic car accident, Samantha is left widowed and bereft.  Her husband Adam was everything to her. But at least the home they shared together in Cornwall provides her with some security. Or does it?

Upon returning from a school reunion in Sheffield, where Sam met her old friend, Penny, and an old flame from her school days, Dan, she discovers that Adam had invested money unwisely and she is now penniless.

When Penny and Dan, who are now married, arrive in Cornwall to visit Sam, Dan comes up with a way in which Sam can keep the house. He suggests she turns it into a writing retreat. And he is willing to invest.

Despite his wife’s reservations, Dan gets his way but at what price?

Why is Dan so keen to help? Has Sam put herself in harm’s way?

Some relationships are built to last. Others are deadly.

My Thoughts

This book was a wild and crazy ride straight into crazy town!

When I finish this book all I could think was what the….. did I just read??? This book reached in to my mind and turned it inside out, and I’m not sure if it is the right way quite yet…. this will be a vague review, because I don’t want to spoil a single moment of it for you…. A book that just confirms the fact that you can, hate. every. single. character. in a book and still like the book….

Sam has lost her husband Adam to a freak accident involving cattle… soon after her husband dies she returns home to attend a class reunion and that is where she reunites with Penny and Dan… Dan ex-boyfriend and Penny ex best friend are now a married couple and have decided to move to Cornwall with Sam… at first I had a tremendous amount of sympathy for Sam and I thought she was being duped and then she turned into a woman possessed…. three unlikable characters doing dastardly things bordering on the line of insanity…. are Sam, Dan, and Penny collectively nuts? Why are they doing such bizarre and hateful things? Who’s duping who?

A beautiful setting with so much ugliness going on… this is the type of book that has you turning those pages into the middle of the night, because you just need to know! Absolutely recommend if you are a fan of a good twisty story!

*** A huge thanks to the author and the publisher for my copy of this book ***

IMG_2825 (2)Author Bio:

Amanda has written since she was a child, but never imagined that her words would be published, given that she left school with no real qualifications of note apart from an A* in how to be a nuisance in class. Nevertheless, she returned to education when her daughter was five and eventually became a history teacher. Then in 2010, after many twists and turns, the dream of becoming a writer came true when her first short story was published. Amanda has written many short stories and has six novels currently published.

Amanda grew up in Sheffield but now has realised her lifelong dream of living in Cornwall and her writing is inspired every day by the dramatic coastline near her home. She has sketched out many stories in her head while walking the cliff paths. Four of her mystery/suspense novels are set there, Somewhere Beyond the Sea, Summer in Tintagel, Behind the Lie and Rip Current. The Cornish Retribution is also set in Cornwall and will be published by Bloodhound Books in October 2018.

Amanda, known to many as Mandy, spends far more time than is good for her on social media and has turned procrastination to a fine art. She can also usually be found playing on the beach with her family, or walking the cliff paths planning her next book.
