‘Last Witness’ By Carys Jones

LAST WITNESS

Cover Image Of 'Last Witness' By Carys Jones“I want to go home”

Ewan’s voice was plaintive, sorrowful, as he lifted his head off Amanda’s arm and peered up at her through tired eyes.

Home.

The word pressed itself into Amanda’s side like a thorn. Each time she breathed in she felt its barbed tip. What was home? A place? A person? For Amanda, home had been the beautiful new house she’d bought with her husband, Will.

Bending forward, she coughed to conceal the sob which trembled up her throat and burst from her lips. Will was gone. All that was left of him was the little boy at her side.

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'.

  • This second little tidbit you’ve shared with us just adds to the book’s intrigue. It certainly has me curious about the events in Amanda’s life. The desire for revenge must be might strong to risk getting involved and endangering her son!

    I look forward to the guest post on the 14th.

    • Hi Kelly,

      I don’t think that I shall have to wait too long for recent events in this family’s lives to be revealed, although Amanda obviously isn’t done with things yet.

      I am now wondering if she is actually setting out to actively endanger her son’s life, or if her actions are purely those of a mother seeking to protect the ‘Last Witness’ to a previous set of events, in a way which will end any chance of future suffering or retribution?

      Carys has chosen an interesting and generic topic for her guest post and something we can all engage with!

      Have a great weekend and ‘Happy Reading’ 🙂

    • Hi Sandra,

      ‘Last Witness’ is the sequel to ‘Wrong Number’, with the story following on from one book to the other. The general concensus of opinion though, is that the stories do work as stand alones, although if you read the second book first, then there is really no need to then read the first book, if that makes sense.

      I guess I will find out what has happened to Will quite early on in the story, although it doesn’t sound as though this family’s trauma is over yet!!

      Thanks for stopping by to share your comments. It is always good to chat with you and have a great weekend 🙂

    • Hi Katherine,

      I am wondering if there is a home to go back to for this diminished family, as after reading the full synopsis, it doesn’t sound as though Amanda is going to have much time to grieve for what she has lost, at least not until the revenge in her heart has finally been assuaged.

      Definitely some intense times coming up I think!

      Thanks for taking the time to comment and ‘Happy Reading’ 🙂

    • Hi Priyanka,

      Thank You so much for stopping by Fiction Books this week. I enjoy ‘meeting’ new people and will always appreciate your visits and comments.

      Whilst those opening lines are very poignant and touching, if you check out the full premise for the book, you will see that although Amanda is very sad about the situation in which she finds herself, she is also one tough cookie and is definitely hellbent on revenge and retribution. She is certainly in no mood to be messed with!

      Enjoy your week and ‘Happy Reading’ 🙂

    • Hi Naida,

      Emotional in every sense of the word I think sums this one up.

      Sadness, sorrow, hurt, pain, revenge, hatred and most of all determination.

      But who is the ‘Last Witness’ and can she defend them?

      We had a great weekend, thanks. A busy week ahead though!!

      ‘Happy Reading’ 🙂

    • Hi Lauren,

      Those opening lines certainly do set the scene with a real sense of purpose and emotion, don’t they? Here’s hoping that the rest of the story is just as good!

      Thanks for stopping by, it is always great to chat with you 🙂
