His sweet by Hildur Sif Thorarensen – Book Review

Hello Booklovers!!!

I am back with another book review. First I must thank the author,Hildur Sif Thorarensen for sending me a free copy of the ebook, in exchange for an honest review.

His sweet by Hildur Sif Thorarensen

Synopsis

When Sheriff Yolanda Demetriou receives boxes of notebooks, she has no idea of the horrors that lie ahead. Will she be able to piece together the information and locate the house where childhood dreams become nightmares? Or will she be too late to save an abducted girl?

In this dark psychological thriller, Yolanda and her team embark on a hunt for a monster, following maddeningly sparse clues in a race to solve a heartless crime.

My Review

Two young boys find boxes full of notebooks and brings them up to the sheriff, Yolanda Demetriou , where she calls up her team for investigation. Yolanda has no idea where this will lead to or who is behind this. She later learns that a young girl has been abducted and held hidden by a man called Mr. Whiskers. With no proper names or locations and very little information, Yolanda begins her investigation with the help of FBI to find the missing girl. since they believed she is still alive.

The story was such a thriller and most importantly a short read. It just took me one whole day (which is today :)) to complete it. The story gripped me from the beginning and I was really interested to know, what will happen next. When I started reading, I did not know what to expect. I must say, that highly doubted whether, Yolanda will be able to save this girl. But, she finally she did.

It was wonderfully written and fantastic. The authors writing ability and the story line keeps the reader hooked to the story. There was this strange eeriness in the story which becomes, the wow factor of the whole story.

I enjoyed the way the story was written. In between each chapter, there was an extraction from a page from one of the notebooks the little girl has written. The reader feels great wave of emotions towards the little girl. As I mentioned earlier, I was excited and enthralled from the first page till the last.

I would highly recommend this book to all the book lovers, who are looking for a light but dark read.

Prologue

I was waiting in the wings backstage at the Menagerie Hotel and Casino, preparing the equipment for my first stage illusion. Straitjacket, check. Oversized timer and mood-music speakers, check. And most important, transparent coffin, check. As I lay bound inside it, I’d press a button that would expel all the air in the coffin with a dramatic puff, for my audience’s benefit, and then I’d pull off a daring escape.

The coffin might sound morbid, but I wasn’t planning to die in it. I was planning to live.

Forget college or a normal future. I wanted to be a magician: the Miraculous Moira.

 

Saw this book on Amazon and the blurb aroused my curiosity. I purchased the eBook and I have already started reading it. Really excited and I hope to do a review when I have completed reading it.

That is all for today folks.

Until next post,

XOXOX
