Right Behind You by Rachel Abbott - Blog Tour Review

Jo Palmer's peaceful and happy life with her partner Ash and her little girl Millie is about to end.

Ash will be arrested by the police.
Her precious Millie will be taken from her.
She will lose her friends.
She will doubt her sanity

Someone is stealing everything Jo loves, and will stop at nothing.

But right now, Jo is laughing in her kitchen, eating dinner with her family, suspecting nothing.

It's raining outside.

There's a knock at the door. They are here.

My Review

If only people could see how quickly I replied to the email about this book!! I am a massive fan of Rachel Abbott's books especially the ones featuring Tom Douglas. I was really excited to read this and as soon as I read the opening I knew it was going to be a cracking read. That opening drew me in and I was so eager to find out the outcome was going to be. 

Rachel Abbott has written a book that brought my fears as a parent to the forefront. Imagining myself in Jo's position and the lengths I would possibly go to in order to protect my child. 

Jo is in the middle of every mother's nightmare. Luckily Tom Douglas is on hand to help! He is one of my favourite book detectives and I love reading how he looks at the case and tries to find a solution. He has a big heart and cares deeply about the case he is working on.

Right Behind You is a brilliant addition to the Douglas series and I couldn't stop reading. Thanks to Rachel Abbott's superb writing I felt so many different emotions - anger, sadness, relief, happiness. I would highly recommend Right Behind You, it is the ninth in the series but you don't need to have read the rest to enjoy the story, Tom Douglas and Rachel Abbott's storytelling.
