Her Husbands Grave - P L Kane || Blog Tour

A hint of gold glistened in the sand. It was a watch, no doubt about it
. A watch… attached to a body. Criminal psychologist Robyn Adams is at breaking point after her last case resulted in an attempt on her own life. But as she sits in the car about to head home, her phone rings. It’s Robyn’s cousin, Vicky Carter, who she hasn’t seen or heard from in years. 
Vicky’s voice cracks down the phone. Her husband, Simon, has been found buried on Golden Sands beach. Desperate to help and determined not to let her last case get the better of her, Robyn returns to the coastal village where she spent summers with Vicky as a child.
 Robyn knows that she has let Vicky down in the past and is set on making up for lost time. Throwing herself into the case, she combs through evidence, intent on discovering a lead that will help the local police.
 But there is clearly someone who wants Robyn gone. She is convinced someone is watching her and when she begins to receive threatening notes, Robyn knows that she could be risking her life…
 But Robyn won’t leave again – she owes it to Vicky to stay. 

I love a thriller that i just cannot unpuzzle for the life of me, when i was invited onto this tour, i was beyond excited and i was right. It was a great read.

When Robyns cousin calls asking for help, despite having not seen each other for years - she is family and goes to her aid. Vickys husband has been found dead and buried on the beach, a place that once held such fond memories for the cousins as they grew up. Robyn is determined to help solve this case after all she has the experience of supporting the police.

Its not as simple as that, as things often are. She is met with people who think she is of no aid to them, her own problems from before and the fact someone really doesnt want her there digging around.

This was really clever, i felt like it kept me hooked until the very end, i literally could not put it down. As a reader, in hindsight the hints are there, but there is no way i was getting the answers on my own. 

The characters were flawed with their own issues they were battling and i enjoyed that, they had so many other emotions other than grief to deal with as the cousins tried to reunite. The cast of supporting characters are all well developed and all have a relevant part to the story. The narrative itself in places was dark and very very twisty. I really think this is one people should be checking out because its not like anything else. I really felt in the dark with this and for me that is what made it such an enjoyable reading experience

I was gifted my copy for the blog tour.
