Today I am absolutely thrilled to be taking part on the blog tour for “Picture of Innocence” by TJ Stimson.
Wow oh wow. What a book….loved it….
The cover initially won me over but what a story that came after….
For the first couple of chapters, the tears were there and I’ll admit, I found it quite upsetting to read.
After that, I raced through it, couldn’t put it down in fact.
It was such a dark, murky novel, leaving me clueless as to who was at fault…
We meet Maddie & Lucas who have lost their son in the most cruel way possible.
We watch as both of them struggle with their grief and try to move on as a family.
But who has hurt their son, who can they trust, can they even trust each other anymore…
If only Maddie could remember.
She wonders is she losing her mind.
And who is Lydia and what has she done 🤔🤔
So many questions….
This is author Tess Stimson’s first time delving into the psychological thriller genre and she certainly doesn’t disappoint with it….
You won’t put this novel down I tell you…
It’s completely engrossing…💕
Well worth taking the time to check out….
Thank you kindly to author Tess, her publishers Avon Books UK and the lovely Sabah for my copy of this book. Much appreciated.
My name is Lydia. I’m 12 years old. I’m not an evil person, but I did something bad.
My name is Maddie. I’d never hurt my son. But can I be sure if I don’t remember?
With three children under ten, Maddie is struggling. On the outside, she’s a happy young mother, running a charity as well as a household. But inside, she’s exhausted. She knows she’s lucky to have to have a support network around her. Not just her loving husband, but her family and friends too.
But is Maddie putting her trust in the right people? Because when tragedy strikes, she is certain someone has hurt her child – and everyone is a suspect, including Maddie herself…
