Today I am delighted (and a little scared) to be taking part in the blog tour for Rachel’s Abbott’s latest novel, Come A Little Closer. I am not scared about being part of the tour. Reading and reviewing is the easy bit, but because I am a little mad, I’ve agreed to take part in the writing challenge.
The premise – given a prompt of a paragraph and several key items, I need to continue the story. You have no idea how hard that actually is until you try. Ask me to write 800 words as a review and I fly – try stopping me. 800 words of interesting, engaging and potentially thrilling story … well. We’ll see just how bad it is in a moment or two. First – let’s see what the book is all about …
About the Book
They will be coming soon. They come every night.
Snow is falling softly as a young woman takes her last breath.
Fifteen miles away, two women sit silently in a dark kitchen. They don’t speak, because there is nothing left to be said.
Another woman boards a plane to escape the man who is trying to steal her life. But she will have to return, sooner or later.
These strangers have one thing in common. They each made one bad choice – and now they have no choices left. Soon they won’t be strangers, they’ll be family…
When DCI Tom Douglas is called to the cold, lonely scene of a suspicious death, he is baffled. Who is she? Where did she come from? How did she get there? How many more must die?
Who is controlling them, and how can they be stopped?
