When you think you are escaping one scenario in life and head unknowingly into a worse one. This is what happens to Julia and her Daughter, Lucy when she decides to leave her husband.
A very serious of unfortunate events take control, as Julia's life spirals more out of control.
One of the hostages is the vilest of villains, and I had real emotional loathing for him and his side kick.
He is a foul human being of the worst kind.
Although his partner working along side him tries to make Julia's and Lucy's life in capture more tolerable, it is still too horrific. Julia has to decide to kill or die?
I was taken on a nervy edge of my seat read with this one, and was routing for Julia and her daughter to escape unscathed, and if she did was hoping she would get the new life she deserved....
This really was a fantastic suspense story, that kept me riveted to the pages from beginning to end.
I've always loved writing. What started as a hobby has now become a way of life. My children's and YA books have been published by Scholastic Children's Books, Usborne Publishing, Penguin Australia, Hometown World, Badger Learning and Astraea Press (Clean Reads).
Plus there are a number of adults books published under my pen name of Ann Carroll - and more in the pipeline. The Beast published by Usborne won the raring2read category in the Coventry Literary Book Festival 2013. 2017 sees three new books being published, another YA reluctant reader book for Badger Learning entitled Keeper. An historical romance called A Place to Belong, and a crime thriller - working title Kill or Die with Bloodhound Books.
When I'm not writing I do school visits, run workshops and give talks.
My non-fiction career spans the last 30 years which includes 13 years at the Coventry Telegraph as a staff feature writer plus a great many freelance articles on a wide range of topics
