Hello! Today I’m pleased to welcome you to JuliaPalooza for my stop on the Blog Tour for After You Fell by J.S. Lark, which is available now (links below).
About the book
Creepy, disturbing and genuinely thrilling, this is one page-turner you won’t be able to forget!
As one life ends Louise’s Lovett’s death was a tragedy. But questions still swirl about exactly what happened to Louise that day. Did she fall…or was she pushed?
A new life starts Helen Matthews’ donor heart saves her life. But as her new heart beats inside her, Helen feels the pull of its previous owner–despite what everyone is telling her, Helen is certain she has one final message to pass on.
And a dark obsession begins As the lives of Helen and Louise become ever more entangled, Helen’s obsession gets increasingly out of control. And the fragile new life she has built begins to fall apart…
After You Fell has a very intriguing premise and is a slow-burning and claustrophobic tale of obsessions.
Helen is our – for various reasons – somewhat unreliable narrator and the inside of Helen’s head is often an uncomfortable and unusual place to be. The book is full of descriptive prose and I very much felt I was there with Helen and the other characters throughout their collective journey. There is a lot of emotion in the book and I sympathised with many of the feelings and thoughts, which were well described.
I wasn’t too keen on the references to Helen’s ‘sixth sense’, although this lessened as the book progressed, or on the minutiae of everyone’s actions and mannerisms and daily routines because this made it, for me, a little slow going during the middle. I was champing at the bit to find out more about Helen and Louise.
By the end though, the pace increases and the final few chapters were a rollercoaster of action and emotions.
After You Fell is a dark and hypnotic ride. It is not a break-neck speed thriller, but if you are looking for an eloquent and creepy mystery, this is the book for you.
With thanks to One More Chapter for my copy of the book and to Rachel of Rachel’s Random Resources for my spot on the tour.
