Today it is my pleasure to be taking part in the blog tour for Forget Me Not, the latest thriller from Claire Allan and Avon Books. My thanks to Sabah Khan at Avon for including me in the tour. I have a great extract to share with you all, as soon as we’ve taken a look at what the book is about:
About the Book
I disappeared on a Tuesday afternoon. I was there one minute and the next I was gone. They’ve never found my body…
It’s six in the morning during the hottest summer on record when Elizabeth O’Loughlin, out walking her dog, comes across Clare, a victim of a horrific knife attack, clinging onto life at the side of the road.
Clare dies minutes later, but not before whispering her haunting last words to Elizabeth.
When it becomes clear that Clare’s killer has more than one murder on his mind, Elizabeth has to take drastic action or face losing everything.
But what if she can’t stop a killer determined never to be forgotten?Available from: Amazon | Kobo | Waterstones | Google Play | Apple Books
From the Book
‘And you saw no traces of anyone else along the road? No cars passed as you were out walking?’
I shook my head. It had been so quiet. Blissfully quiet.
‘It’s a quiet road at the best of times, especially at that hour of the morning,’ I told him as one of his colleagues offered to refill my teacup.
‘I imagine,’ he said. ‘And she just said those two words? “Warn them”? Nothing more at all?’
‘Well, my hearing isn’t as sharp as it used to be, but no, DI Bradley, she didn’t say anything else. I don’t think she had the strength. The poor girl. Do they know who she is yet? Who she belongs to? Her poor, poor family.’
‘I believe they think they’ve identified her,’ he said, his soft blue eyes sad. ‘But I’m afraid I can’t give you any further information until she’s been formally identified by a family member. You know how it is.’
I nodded. I did, indeed, know how it is, and how it was. I’d stood with family members myself as they’d identified bodies of their loved ones. A matter of procedure. A formality that sometimes felt unspeakably cruel.
‘And you’ve never seen this woman before?’
I shook my head, rubbed my arm to try to ease the aching muscles. ‘I don’t often get out and about, apart from walking Izzy there. My health isn’t what it used to be. And I don’t tend to bump into too many people when I’m around these roads and fields.’
The handsome DI Bradley nodded again, closed his notebook and sat back in his chair.
‘Mrs O’Loughlin, I appreciate this has been exceptionally traumatic for you, but we really appreciate your time and the information you’ve been able to give us. Have you any family members who can call over and sit with you? You’ve had quite a shock.’
