I post book reviews as often as possible but at least once a week every Wednesday! I hope they help you to find some new books that you'll love as much as I did!
Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for the latest book in the Detective Kay Hunter series, Hell to Pay!
There's lots of fabulous bloggers taking part, so don't forget to take a look at the other stops on the tour too! Thank you to the lovely Emma for organising the tour! I'm very grateful to be part of it! :)
When a road traffic accident on a dark autumn night uncovers a disturbing conspiracy, Detective Sergeant Kay Hunter’s investigation exposes a ruthless serial killer exploiting vulnerable young women.
With her enemies unmasked and her career spiralling out of control, Kay’s determination to seek vengeance for the victims brings her dangerously close to those who want to silence her.
Undeterred, she uncovers the real reason behind a plot to destroy her career and sets in motion a terrifying chain of events.
Could Kay’s need for revenge be her undoing, or will she survive to see justice served?
Hell to Pay is a gripping fast paced crime thriller, and the fourth in the Detective Kay Hunter series:
1. SCARED TO DEATH
2. WILL TO LIVE
3. ONE TO WATCH
4. HELL TO PAY
A page-turning whodunit for fans of Peter Robinson, David Baldacci and James Patterson.
A little while back I took part in the cover reveal for not only Hell to Pay, but also the previous Kay Hunter book, One to Watch, as I'd heard so many wonderful things about them. However, until a few weeks ago, I'd never read any of the books in the series! I was so excited to finally get a chance to see for myself what all the fuss was about!
Straight away, I could see why everyone loves Amphlett's writing. The pace was wonderfully fast right from the beginning and didn't relent until the very end. I was immediately swept up in the completely original plot and there were plenty of twists which kept me hooked so I couldn't put it down!
Even though I hadn't read the other books in the series, I understood everything and feel that it worked just fine on its own, although I think that if I'd read the previous books first, it might've added to my enjoyment of this book as it would've helped me to understand Kay's character in more depth.
Overall, I'm giving Hell to Pay 4.5 out of 5! It was fast-paced and twisty and I'll definitely be going back to read the previous Kay Hunter books!
