I can’t believe another month is over already! Where is the time going?! The end of the month only means one thing – it’s time for my July wrap-up! This month hasn’t consisted of a great deal of reading, but I’ve been SO busy it’s crazy. Not only have I started some exciting things involving a brand new website, but my blog has helped me get a job!! I’ll tell you all about it at the end of this post but first, let’s have a quick wrap-up of the books I read!
It’s not often I dislike a book character; they have to do something really awful or just generally be a horrible person for me to dislike them. Otherwise, I’ll just not have a very strong opinion about them. This means that for this week’s Top 5 Wednesday, I really had to rack my brains to think of some truly unlikable characters. There are a couple of minor characters, some protagonists, and one that is maybe a bit controversial (please don’t hurt me). I’ll start with the more minor characters and work up to the major ones…
Patrick Forrester is in trouble. Deep trouble. Someone wants him dead. In fact, lots of people want him dead, but one of them has taken him hostage. As he’s being bundled away, he manages to call his ex-lover, Summer Morris, and begs her for help…
Summer Morris, an award-winning photographer with synaesthesia, hasn’t spoken to Patrick for months. With good reason. In fact, she would have been happy never to hear from him again. But, he begged her for help, so she’s trying to help. Along with an off-duty police officer, Detective Sergeant LB Stewart, she gets swept into Patrick’s world of lies and deceit, in a desperate race against time to find him alive.
Trying to unpick the knot of Patrick’s life takes them from an affair that could help bring down a government, to the dust and heat of Malawi, and a whole heap of trouble in between. If only they knew who wanted him dead, they might find him alive. The trouble is, almost everyone wants Patrick dead.
