I am delighted to be joining the blog tour for All For You and wishing a very happy publication day to Louise Jensen! Many thanks to Louise and the team at HQ for providing me with a copy of the book.
MEET THE WALSH FAMILY
Lucy: Mother. Wife. Falling to pieces . . .
Aidan: Father. Husband. In too deep . . .
Connor: Son. Brother. Can never tell the truth . . .
Everyone in this family has something to hide, but what are they trying to protect, and at what cost?
IT WAS ALL FOR YOU.
As you will all know by now, Louise Jensen is one of my favourite thriller writers, and I usually devour her books. Reading All For You, I found it a little slower to really grab me than her other books, in part one at least, although I confess I am not quite able to put my finger on why this was.
Told from the perspectives of Lucy, Aiden and Connor, All For You gives you the opportunity to really get under the skin of each character, to the extent that Lucy’s emotions and thought processes felt so real that at times I had to stop and remind myself that I was reading fiction and this wasn’t about the author’s own family.
Although part one is something of a slow burn, it is full of tension and the sense that something big is coming. That said, nothing prepared me for the start of part two which was so shocking that I was glad to be reading in daylight and not at night – it was most definitely the stuff of nightmares. The pace definitely picks up in the second half of the book, and the revelations start coming thick and fast.
As always with Louise’s books, I jumped from one theory to another to another. Some were right. Others couldn’t have been more wrong. I will leave you to see which conclusions you leap to and how accurate they are.
