Review: The Cold Hard Truth by Amanda Leigh Cowley
The Cold Hard Truth - Amanda Leigh Cowley

Self-published (27 February 2017)

 

ISBN: 978-1520380247

 

ASIN: B01NAKA7FG

 

Rating: 5*

 

Synopsis:

Nothing could prepare Emily for what she witnessed that day. With no money to support herself and suffering from panic attacks, she reluctantly moves in with her estranged mother and half-sister overseas. But as fractured relationships start to heal and a new one threatens to blossom, she uncovers a disturbing secret. When the truth hurts this much, would you prefer not to know?

 

Review:

I'd previously read and reviewed the author's Soul Protector The Betrayal, which I'd really enjoyed, so I couldn't wait to get stuck into this. I did have a slight worry of 'what if it isn't as good as...' which only happens when I've absolutely loved an author's previous books and I'm worried that I'll be disappointed! In this case, however, I needn't have worried at all!

 

The Cold Hard Truth is an utterly compelling mystery full of engaging characters and packed to the brim with intrigue. I picked it up first thing in the morning, intending to read just a few chapters, but found myself unable to put it down; I was just finishing the last chapter as i went to bed that night! Amanda Leigh Cowley has a beautifully evocative style of writing that grabs your attention from the very outset. 

 

Full of twists and turns, including an almighty, unforseen shocker at the end, The Cold Hard Truth has all my favourite elements. I'd recommend it to readers of crime, mystery, romance, women's fiction. In fact, anyone who reads!

I'd like to thank Amanda Leigh Cowley for providing an ARC in return for my honest review.

CRIMSON MIND by Amanda Leigh is AVAILABLE NOW! WOO HOO!
Crimson Mind - Amanda Leigh

Please excuse my excitement but this is my debut novel and it has just been released!  I have a gigantic smile on my face at the moment.

 

Crimson Mind is an erotic thriller written in verse.  It is more of a thriller with erotic undertones.  It is violent, sexy and easy to read (in my opinion).  My aim was to write a verse novel that most people could read without any difficulty.  It is fast-paced and it gets straight to the point.

 

Some of the poems were laid out to look like particular things e.g. a knife, a noose etc. Because of this, I recommend you read a hard copy version as I can't guarantee the layout will look the same on your e-reader.  I have been told it is to do with different device settings.  It is totally up to you which version you read, but just be aware you may not see the work the way it is meant to be seen, which is why I recommend a hard copy.

For those who aren't sure what I mean by 'verse', Crimson Mind is a series of poems that are all connected to form a story.  Each poem links with the next.  If you are familiar with Dorothy Porter's work, you will understand what I mean.  I love her writing style and I wanted to do something similar.  

 

Here is the synopsis for Crimson Mind, for those who are interested:

 

When twenty-year-old Mary Hunt is raped then murdered in Rocky Burrow Mountains, it is up to small town police officer Senior Constable Susan Connelly to prove herself capable and solve the case.

 

With Mary's friend, Samantha, and cousin, Jacqueline, also searching for answers, it is a race to find the killer before the killer finds them.

 

Fast-paced, violent, and sexy, this erotic verse thriller delves into the lives and minds of the sexual, criminal, and just. It's a page-turner until the very end.

 

Crimson Mind is available at http://bookstore.xlibris.com/Products/SKU-000964176/Crimson-Mind.aspx
