The Heights by Louise Candlish

Mothers always know best don't they?

Ellen knew Kieran was bad news and didn't want him being friends with her son Lucas.

She couldn't talk her son out of spending time with Kieran. All the insisting didn't get the point across and ended up with Lucas being in a car accident with Kieran.

Ellen couldn't forgive Kieran, and when Kieran came back to town after his time in jail, she couldn't get over seeing him alive and not her son.

We follow Ellen, Lucas, Vic, Justin, Freya, and Kieran as the story unfolds from when Lucas was in high school to when Kiernan comes back to town.

What will a mother do to avenge her child?

There is an underlying tension and you know something bad did happen and is going to happen, but what is it?

You will also ask yourself what the significance of THE HEIGHTS is.

The book did drag a bit, but the overall story line ends well.

Surprises and the characters will keep you turning the pages. 

Thriller fans will enjoy this book. 4/5

This book was given to me by the publisher both in print and via NetGalley for an honest review.

      I enjoyed it.

  3. Getting reviews for a first time author is a difficult process. I used to get 100+ reviews for my book at very affordable price. This helped to give a big boost to my book visibility and sales. I also got a complimentary spot in their email newsletter which also helped with sales. So, if you are looking for reviews, would definitely recommend.
