I’m excited to be hosting the blog tour for Find Me today. This review is written with thanks to Head of Zeus for my copy of the book.
Rosa was the love of Jar’s life. Five years ago, she took her own life, but her body was never found. Jar sees Rosa everywhere, and he can’t help but cling to the hope that she is still alive somewhere, despite his friends trying to convince him that he should move on. But then, Jar receives an e-mail from Rosa asking him to meet her. Is it really Rosa or is someone playing tricks on him?
I was absolutely enthralled by Find Me – I read it almost in one sitting. Although I’m not particularly familiar with the locations Monroe uses, his descriptions were so vivid that I could picture them as if I was there, and this pulled me in to what was happening, not letting me go until I knew what had happened to Rosa.
It took me a few chapters to get to grips with the plot, but once I did, I was hooked! The plot is very clever, and there are many red herrings, but it’s never pretentious. I didn’t know who to trust or believe and Monroe kept me on the edge of my seat wondering which characters were genuine.
The narrative takes many different forms, from third person narrative to journals, to e-mails and letters. I enjoyed this aspect of Find Me, as it allowed me to view the characters from different angles and increased the sense of intrigue.
There are elements of torture in the novel, which make for gruesome reading, but these scenes do have a strong impact on the reader if you are able to stick with them. Find Me is never pretty, but it’s a thrilling ride that you’ll want to be part of.
Find Me is available from Amazon.
