Sharing our love for authors, and the stories they are inspired to tell.

‘Hidden’ by Emma Kavanagh

Charlie: Sunday 31 August, 10.33am

I can smell the blood.

It is all that I can smell.

It coats my nostrils, my lungs, it stains the inside of my throat.

It is on me.

It covers my hands, has turned my white blouse crimson, and I do not know how much of it is mine, how much comes from the dead.

Okay! Those few short lines definitely have me hooked – what about you?

I had hoped to share a few more lines than this, as the next couple of paragraphs did look particularly descriptive. However, as I began to type, I realised that the spoilers were starting to creep in, so I back tracked a little.

This way, there is more than enough information to whet the appetite for all you lovers of a good psychological thriller, however you’ll just need to read the book to find out the “What, Why and When”!

If you really don’t mind the hint of a spoiler, you can find out more about both book and author, here

As this was a publisher review request, with a blog tour taking place later in the year, a lovely paperback copy was received, courtesy of publisher, Century.

This will in no way influence any comments I may express about the book, in any blog article I may post. Any thoughts or comments are my own personal opinion and I am in no way being monetarily compensated for this, or any other article.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
