#Blogtour – Shadows of Regret by Ross Greenwood

My deep thanks to Caroline Vincent of Bits about Books who arranged this tour and asked me to be part of it.

Katie committed a terrible crime. Sixteen years in prison was the price.

When she is released from prison, the world has changed. 

Isolated and alone, Katie struggles to make sense of her life. Starting again isn’t easy especially after what she’s done.

Despite not feeling free or safe, Katie overcomes her fears and confronts the future. 
But history won’t remain forgotten.  

Who can she trust when her new friends are either damaged or hiding dark secrets?

One by one, memories of the past are revealed but one in particular evades Katie. The one that brought about her downfall. That had her locked away as a young girl.

When the awful truth is finally exposed, Katie must decide between redemption or revenge.

“If you enjoyed Eleanor Oliphant’s journey but prefer your stories darker, this is perfect for you.” 

There are writers, good writers and ones that have the power of words to captivate you in an instant. Ross Greenwood has this in spades.”

About the Author – Ross Greenwood

About the Author – ROSS GREENWOOD 

Ross Greenwood was born in 1973 in Peterborough and lived there until he was 20, attending The King’s School in the city. He then began a rather nomadic existence, living and working all over the country and various parts of the world. 

Ross found himself returning to Peterborough many times over the years, usually, so he says “when things had gone wrong.” It was on one of these occasions that he met his partner about 100 metres from his back door whilst walking a dog. Two children swiftly followed. And, according to Ross, he is “still a little stunned by the pace of it now.” 

Lazy Blood book was started a long time ago but parenthood and then four years as a prison officer got in the way. Ironically it was the four a.m. feed which gave the author the opportunity to finish the book as unable to get back to sleep he completed it in the early morning hours. 

Ross Greenwood’s second book, The Boy Inside, was picked up by Bloodhound Books, and in September 2017, Fifty Years of Fear was published. The year 2018 saw the publication of his next psychological thriller, Abel’s Revenge. All his books are thought provoking, and told with a sense of humour. 

Ross Greenwood hopes you enjoy reading them.

My Review:

This book flows well, the chapters are built up from a mix of Katie’s childhood memories and the present day. The characters are believable and created in a way that you end up finding them likable – even if you don’t warm to them, to begin with. Don’t get me wrong, this doesn’t have the fairytale ending that many enjoy, and I would say its quite venomous and not for the fainthearted. But a great read and the violence is justified within the story.

The book is tainted with tales of Prison life, dodgy dealings, and even dodgier characters, lies and how Katie got to where she is now and why. But it works and is surprisingly good, right to the very end. The fast pace never gives in and slows down, I was left wanting more.
