Anything For Her Blog Tour - Jack Jordan
Today is my turn on the blog tour for Anything For Her by Jack Jordan and I'm bringing you my review of the book.
This is one roller coaster of a book! I did not want to put it down and I needed to keep reading to find out what happened.
The story follows Louise and her family and it starts off right when her family life is in the process of imploding. Her husband will probably be going to jail for fraud and the family will lose all their possessions in the process, her husband has also just confessed to having a 10 month long affair with her sister and Louise herself and their daughter Brooke are keeping a devastating secret from one night a year ago. Lost in all of this mess is the ten year old son, Dominic.
Louise decides to leave for a few days to their country house to escape all the drama and to have some time to herself to process and recoup. This is definitely not what happens. Strange happenings start happening both to Louise at the country house and to Brooke at their home. Michael (Louise's estranged husband) wants to know what happened "that night" to make everything change so much and he wants his wife back.
Things from there just get worse as Brooke goes missing and Louise becomes the target of a strange hate campaign while the police who are trying to find Brooke are also trying to find out Louise's secret. And boy do you want to find out as well!
More than that I don't want to say anything about the plot as I really don't want to spoil anything. The book goes places that I haven't seen before and it is very, very dark. It also shocked me in more than just the darkness which was a great movement away from the typical psychological thriller with its predictability.
As a mum I know I will do anything for my child, however Louise goes to a length which I'm just not sure if I could go to. I realised once I'd read that section that I'd been holding my breath I was so tense about what was happening. It was just so well written though I couldn't tear my eyes away from the page.
Overall an absolutely intense and absorbing read which will stay will you for a long time. Go and do yourself a favour and read it.
