Blog Tour Review - Looking for Lucie by Amanda Addison

 Blog Tour Review - Looking for Lucie by Amanda Addison "Where are you really from?" It's a question every brown girl in a white-washed town is familiar with, and one that Lucie has never been able to answer. All she knows is that her mother is white, she's never met her father, and she looks nothing like the rest of her family. She can't even talk about it because everyone says it shouldn't matter! Well, it matters to Lucie and-with her new friend Nav, who knows exactly who he is-she's determined to find some answers. What do you do when your entire existence is a question with no answer?

 Review - Her Last Holiday by C L Taylor


You come to Soul Shrink to be healed. You don’t expect to die.

Two years ago, Fran’s sister Jenna disappeared on a wellness retreat in Gozo that went terribly wrong.

Tom Wade, the now infamous man behind Soul Shrink Retreats, has just been released from prison after serving his sentence for the deaths of 2 people. But he has never let on what happened to the third suspected victim: Jenna.

Determined to find out the truth, Fran books herself onto his upcoming retreat – the first since his release – and finds herself face to face with the man who might hold the key to her sister’s disappearance. The only question is, will she escape the retreat alive? Or does someone out there want Jenna’s secrets to stay hidden?



I really enjoyed Her Last Holiday. An intriguing thriller about a wellness retreat that resulted in disappearances, deaths and a whole lot of questions to be answered. Fantastic stuff.

Telling the story through two different time periods really worked for me, I liked learning snippets of what happened on "her last holiday" while following the "current time" investigation into it, and being able to slowly put clues and people together myself. The relationship between the couple running the retreats was really fascinating, and there was a real depth to many of the supporting cast. It was really intriguing, clever and I enjoyed it a lot.
