I am thrilled to share my review with you all today for No Looking Back by Alex Kane on Blog Tour. Which is out now .
He’ll find you… unless you find him first.
Kat Denton is a woman running away from her past. For the past sixteen years, her life has been a living hell as Jimmy, the man she fell in love with as a teenager, becomes ever more cruel and abusive. Following the fire that killed her parents, leaving her an orphan when she was just a teenager, Kat is utterly alone and can’t see a way out.
Until the day she finds out that she’s pregnant. Vowing to protect her child from Jimmy’s violence, Kat decides to fight for survival – for her and her unborn baby.
Fleeing the traveller camp that has been her lifelong home isn’t easy. But along with her sister in law, Kat escapes with just the clothes on her back and the one photograph she has of her parents.
Kat, along with her baby girl Lucia, starts to build a better life. But when she looks into what really happened in her parents’ death Kat uncovers dark secrets – including a revelation that will lead Kat back to the place she had been so desperate to run away from. Is she strong enough to uncover the truthand save everything that she loves most, or will Jimmy Denton have his revenge?
Previously published as Chasing the Traveller
A fast-paced, totally unputdownable crime thriller that fans of Mel Sherratt, Mandasue Heller and Kimberley Chambers will absolutely love.
OMFG this book just got a whole better after reading it first time round when it was first published has Chasing the Traveller. Not only has it got a brand new cover and title which I love. But for me it was like reading a brand new story! It is absolutely freaking amazing.
I started this book with having only an hour spare to read I couldn’t wait to see what changes had been made, then before I knew it I had finished the book. Obviously that hour turned into a few more everything just stopped because I was so engrossed in Kat’s story. With an OMG start I was well and truly hooked.
Let me explain….Kat is the main character living in a traveller environment married to toerag Jimmy! a character who I didn’t like and which you are not meant to like. Kat leaves with her sister in law Helen, when she finds out she is pregnant.
We follow Kat a pulse racing, emotion journey rebuilding her life and learning about her parents death. But every step of the way she is looking over her shoulder with the worry that Jimmy is going to find her. Or was that bit just me, because all I did was worry about him finding them. The tension build up is unreal, but at the same time I loved the friend Kat and Helen shared.
No Looking Back is jam packed with emotion and suspense and will certainly keep you on tender hooks, that’s for sure. Not only that it is so much more grittier. If you are looking for something to get your teeth into then this is the book for you.
Which I highly recommend giving it all the stars.
