Till death do us part…
After leaving her marriage to jealous, possessive oncologist Maxwell, Lily and her six-year-old son have a second chance at happiness with headteacher Sebastian. Kind but vulnerable, Sebastian is the polar opposite of Maxwell, and the perfect match for Lily. After a whirlwind romance, they marry, and that’s when things start to go wrong…
Maxwell returns to the scene, determined to win back his family, and events soon spiral out of control. Lily and Sebastian find themselves not only fighting for their relationship, but also their lives…
Chilling, dark and terrifying, Do No Harm is a taut psychological thriller and a study of obsession, from one of the most exciting new voices in crime fiction.
After reading The Others a year ago I jumped at the chance to take part in this Blog tour. Being familiar with the authors writing I went into this not reading the blurb so I wasn’t sure what to expect with the story line.
The story starts off told from Lily’s Point of view so I was actually thinking OMG am I going to like this due to the fact that I am not a massive fan of stories wrote like this. Then the next time I knew it was the middle of the night and I had devoured half of the book….I simply couldn’t put it down! Unfortunately for me I had to get up early for work and the whole time I was itching to get back to it so I could find out what was going to happen next.
The author weaves one hell of a dark and creepy that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Drawing you in from the very first page and keeps you there until the very end. The whole time I felt has if Lily and I was there together with her telling me story. Lucy’s writing style is sharp and crisp. I could feel the tension and anxiety within Lily’s voice.
The tension build up is out of this world and of course full of OMG moments.What can I say but I flipping loved everything about it. Lucy’s writing just gets better and better this is without a doubt her best book yet.
Which I highly recommend giving it all the stars.
Thank you to Anne Cater for inviting me to take part in this epic tour
