I am delighted to be the next stop on the blog tour for Jack Jordan’s wonderful debut novel, Anything For Her. I actually read and reviewed this book last year when it was first published. The author has recently changed the book cover to this fabulous eerie one. You can see my thoughts on the book further down.
Sometimes the past comes back to haunt you.
Louise Leighton’s life has fallen apart, all because of one fateful night. Her husband is an adulterer, her sister is his mistress, and soon, Louise will lose everything she owns. But she never imagined she would lose her daughter.
Eighteen-year-old Brooke Leighton is missing. It’s up to Louise and the Metropolitan Police to find her. Has Brooke run away? Or has she been taken against her will? And can Louise aid the investigation without mentioning the night where all of her troubles began?
If she mentions that night, she will incriminate her daughter for heinous crimes. But if she doesn’t, she may never find Brooke; and if she has been abducted, the person who took her may come for Louise, too.
Sometimes the past comes back to kill you.
I really wasn’t to sure about this book when I first started it yet the author had me really intrigued. I couldn’t have put it down even if I had wanted to. I had to know what secret Louise and her daughter Brooke were hiding and boy what a secret it is.
From the start the reader realises straight away that the Leighton family has some serious issues to deal with but they are not quite as straight forward as we are led to believe. As the story unfolds my perception of Louise, Michael and Brooke changed, there is only Dominic the son, who is so innocent and sweet, that I had great empathy for throughout the book.
Anything for Her is a gripping read which by the end of the book my heart was beating ten to the dozen. The story is quite gruelling in parts and it certainly is not one for the faint hearted. If like me though, you like to be shocked by unexpected twists you will love this.
A definite must read that messes with your head.
Many thanks to the author for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Goodreads Rating 4/5 stars.
