The Runaway by Linda Huber - Blog Tour

Wednesday, March 25, 2020

Hello, I'm really happy today to welcome you all to my blog for this stop on the tour for Linda Huber's new book The Runaway. Please do check out all the other stops on the tour because I'm sure there's lots of lovely reviews to read!

I liked the book, I thought it was an interesting premise and I liked Nicola and her tenacity throughout the book. I liked Kelly and thought she was a pretty typical teenager. I could picture the house in Cornwall perfectly and thought the setting - sunny, easy, breezy Cornwall - really added to a juxtaposition with the threat of the book. I did see some of the twists and turns coming, but felt this was a decent book about a family falling apart. I liked how quickly the ending came, when it came, and I liked the flashbacks throughout which explained more about Ed's personality to us.

Here's the description of the book:

Bad things happen in threes – or so it seems to Nicola. The death of her mother-in-law coincides with husband Ed losing his job and daughter Kelly getting into trouble with the police. Time to abandon their London lifestyle and start again by the sea in far-away Cornwall.
It should be the answer to everything – a new home, a new job for Ed and a smaller, more personal school for fifteen-year-old Kelly. But the teenager hates her new life, and it doesn’t take long before events spiral out of control and the second set of bad things starts for Nicola.
Some secrets can’t be buried.
Or… can they?
And here's information about the author, Linda Huber:
Linda Huber grew up in Glasgow, Scotland, but went to work in Switzerland for a year aged twenty-two, and has lived there ever since. Her day jobs have included working as a physiotherapist in hospitals and schools for handicapped children, and teaching English in a medieval castle. Currently she teaches one day a week, and writes psychological suspense novels and feel-good novellas with (most of) the rest of her time.
Her writing career began in the nineties, when she had over fifty short stories published in women’s magazines before turning to psychological suspense fiction. The Runaway is her ninth book, and is set mostly in Cornwall, where she spent several happy holidays as a child.
Linda’s other project is a series of feel-good novellas written under the pen name Melinda Huber and set on the banks of Lake Constance, just minutes from her home in north-east Switzerland. She really appreciates having the views enjoyed by her characters right on her own doorstep!
