Traces of Her by Amanda Brittany - Blog Tour Review

‘Rose. Rose. Pick up, please. I know who killed her. I know who killed my real mum. I’ve worked it out.’
When Rose’s flighty stepsister Willow disappears to Cornwall, she can’t help but roll her eyes. Willow is always taking off and there is always some kind of emergency.
But after Willow discovers that she was adopted and her birth mother died in tragic circumstances, her trip to the coast sparks a search into her past.
Two days later, when a package arrives at Rose’s house containing a series of four polaroids of four different men, Rose knows that Willow is in trouble. Each photograph a possible murder suspect, their family life begins to unravel, leaving one crucial question unanswered…
Who killed Willow’s mother and where is Willow now?

My Review

This was such an excellent read! Told from two different time periods, current time and back to around the time of Willow's mothers death. The story is told mainly from Rose and Ava's perspective with a few chapters from an unknown person (regularly readers of my reviews will know I love a mystery perspective). From start to finish I couldn't stop reading.

Rose is concerned about her step sister, so travels to see her. This starts a chain of events that see Rose becoming some what of an amateur sleuth along with her daughter. Rose is determined to find out what happened to Willow's mother.

I particularly enjoyed the sections told from Ava's point of view. She didn't have it easy, being a young single mother. It was so interesting to get an insight into what was going through her mind at the time of events that led to her death.

Traces of Her is a book I highly recommend, especially if you are a fan of mysteries. I can't say too much without spoiling things, but there were parts of the book that I did not see coming.
