I am absolutely thrilled to share my review with you today on day one of Avaline Saddlebags blog tour which is out today
Following the brutal murders of Jade Kelly and Gina Elliot, newly promoted DI Dylan Monroe is assigned to work the case, alongside DS Layla Monahan.
As the body count rapidly rises—each slaying more savage than the last—it soon becomes clear the butchered and mutilated victims have one thing in common—they are all male to female transsexuals.
With time against them, Dylan is forced to go undercover in the only place that provides a link to the victims—Dorothy’s, a well-known drag and cabaret bar in the heart of Liverpool.
Avaline Saddlebags is a gripping, often amusing, psychological thriller with an astonishing twist that will take your breath away… change can be DEADLY!
Just when I thought I had lost my reading mojo along came Avaline Saddlebags…..What a freaking awesome book this is and a brilliant start to a new series, it is one bloody epic read which I couldn’t put down.
I am a fan of Netta but I have to admit that I have never read any of Marcus’s books. But the two authors together bring one hell of an entertaining read. When we meet Avaline. This is very unique the story line due to the subject matter. I can’t say that I have ever read a thriller about transsexuals.
The authors have done a brilliant job bringing this story to life with characters that jump out the pages. I actually felt like they was friends of mine. I do have to admit that Roy stole the show for me, he is hilarious….Yes this story made me LOL and has quite frankly blown my mind.
I love how the authors have mixed it up ,you cant beat some humour in a thriller making it realistic.
So the thriller side of it is dark and gruesome another element that I loved. Not forgetting the shocker of a twist! I certainly didn’t see that coming.
There is so much I want to say about this book but I don’t want to give anything away and spoil it for you. It is definitely worth a read, which I cannot recommend enough….giving it all the stars.
Now I am left with a book hangover and very much looking forward to the next book. Roy and Avaline rock!
I would also like to say a massive thank you to Sarah Hardy for the blog tour invite.
About the Author’s
Netta Newbound, originally from Manchester, England, has lived in New Zealand with her husband Paul for the past 22 years, but they are on the move again. By August, they will be back in Cumbria, UK, and she vows this is the very last move!
As a child, Netta was plagued by a wild imagination, often getting in trouble for making up weird and wonderful stories. Yet she didn’t turn her attention to writing until after her children had grown and left home.
Most of her inspiration comes from the horror greats–Stephen King, Dean Koontz and Richard Layman.Netta mostly writes psychological thriller novels, all of which consistently rank highly in the best seller categories. She is currently writing a series of crime thrillers with Marcus Brown, her son-in-law and business partner.http://www.nettanewbound.comhttps://www.facebook.com/newboundNetta Newbound (@nettanewbound) on Twitter
My name is Marcus Brown and I was born and raised in the North West of England in 1974.
I live with my partner and our three dogs, Susie, Sally and Sammy, plus our cat, Tobias.
What started as a hobby has now turned into a full-time obsession that often keeps me awake late into the night or through to the early hours of the morning.
I can be relaxing in bed watching a good movie and an idea will suddenly pop into my mind. That’s as much as it takes… I have to get up and write it down because I worry I’ll forget it. This quickly turns into a marathon writing session, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I’ve always had the wildest of imaginations, but I surprise and scare myself at times and have actually had to step away from my desk because what I have written has affected me so much.
People often ask me where the ideas come from and if I’m honest, I think it is from watching others around me. I can be out doing something as mundane as shopping and see something that inspires me and it usually winds its way into what I’m writing at the time. But if it’s especially good and doesn’t fit at the time, it’s stored on my hard drive for a future book.
I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoy writing them.
