*Blog Tour* Kill or Die by Ann Evans

Hi everyone,

Today is one of two stops on the blog tour for Kill or Die by Ann Evans and Ellen gets to share her review with you all. First though, here’s all the bookish information!

About the book:

Kill or Die 1.2

A vicious burglary goes horribly wrong when an elderly victim is killed and

one of the burglars is injured.

In the detached house next door, Julia is preparing to leave her husband. He has let her down for the last time and her bags are packed. Taking their eight-year-old daughter, Lucy, from her bed they set off in the fog.

But on this cold, dark night, fate steps in and these strangers collide.

When Vincent and Nash abduct the mother and daughter, and take them to a derelict house, the situation takes a grave turn.

Meanwhile, Julia’s husband, Ian, is distraught that his wife and daughter have left, and when the murder and burglary are discovered, suspicion falls on him.

For Ian, Julia and Lucy, life is about to become a nightmare.

Can Julia and Lucy escape from the twisted criminals?

What will Julia decide when the choice is – kill or die?

About the author:

I’ve always loved writing. What started as a hobby has now become a way of life. My children’s and YA books have been published by Scholastic Children’s Books, Usborne Publishing, Penguin Australia, Hometown World, Badger Learning and Astraea Press (Clean Reads). Plus there are a number of adults books published under my pen name of Ann Carroll – and more in the pipeline. The Beast published by Usborne won the raring2read category in the Coventry Literary Book Festival 2013. 2017 sees three new books being published, another YA reluctant reader book for Badger Learning entitled Keeper. An historical romance called A Place to Belong, and a crime thriller – working title Kill or Die with Bloodhound Books.
When I’m not writing I do school visits, run workshops and give talks.
My non-fiction career spans the last 30 years which includes 13 years at the Coventry Telegraph as a staff feature writer plus a great many freelance articles on a wide range of topics.

Ellen’s Review:

Wow!!! And again…..WOW!!  What an absolute page swiper, one of those books that grabs hold and will not let you go until you’ve finished. My poor kindle suffered abuse throughout; curry dropped on it as I read at the table and a near miss when running the bath. Be prepared to need to finish in one sitting and provide snacks/drinks for your family for the duration of your absence.
Fate brings Julia and her daughter Lucy on a collision course with disaster. If only her husband had not been “working late”, if only she’d waited at home to confront him rather than packing her bags and leaving that foggy night. If only then they would have been saved from the harrowing events that followed. Her husband meanwhile is none the wiser that his wife and daughter have been kidnapped or how much danger they are in.
Vince and Nash are possibly the vilest criminals I have had the displeasure of encountering; from burglary to murder to kidnap in mere minutes, these two repulsive human beings will stop at nothing. My stomach was churning as the pair went about their deplorable acts and my heart was in my mouth thinking how I would react if I was Julia and the lengths I would go to to ensure my daughter’s safety. Julia was without a doubt my favourite character: her courage, grit and compassion were captivating.
Five stars from me and I look forward to reading more from Ann Evans.
