Bully Boy Blue is a stand alone novella. Having read the authors other books, I was expecting a dark and disturbing read and I wasn’t disappointed.
For a novella the fear that Kathy feels and the abuse she has to endure from her husband really comes across in the story. The fact that her husband works for the police force is even worse as who is going to believe her over her husband? I have to admit I was slightly confused to the age of Kathy. She kept calling her husband dear, which personally the only people I tend to find that use that word is the older generation. I have to admit that I would have liked to have seen a bit less of it when Kathy was speaking to her husband.
Michael Connor, Kathy’s husband is a really nasty piece of work and someone readers will loath instantly. The fact his colleagues can’t see through him made feel as frustrated as Kathy.
It’s hard to say to much about the story with it only being a novella and I don’t want to spoil it for anyone else who hasn’t had the pleasure of reading it yet. What I will say though is that Bully Boy Blue is a gripping read that can easily be devoured in one sitting. To be honest once you’ve picked it up you will struggle to put it down even if you wanted to! It may be a slightly uncomfortable read due to the abuse story line but it’s certainly a cracker a read.
My thanks to the author for an advanced copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
