BLOG TOUR~BOOK EXCERPT~THE COLD COLD SEA by LINDA HUBER #lovebooksgrouptour

BOOK: The Cold Cold Sea

AUTHOR: Linda Huber

GENRE: Suspense

Hello ladies and gentlemen, I’m hosting the blog tour of THE COLD COLD SEA by LINDA HUBER. Here’s an excerpt from the book that would make you want to read more from it.

The day after Olivia’s disappearance, and the strain is increasing for Maggie and Colin.

Back at the cottage, the helicopter had gone. Howard had told them it would only be searching at low tide today, and the thought that it would be looking for a dead child felt unreal to Maggie. Yesterday’s agony was gone, along with today’s brief hope, and in their place the new heaviness was making every movement so difficult she didn’t know how she was managing to stay upright. She was moving into uncharted waters now. Whatever happened, her life would never be the same again. And with every second that passed, the already miniscule likelihood of getting Livvy back alive was growing smaller, and the dread of what was almost certainly coming was quite unbearable.

Colin strode into the bedroom and yanked the case out from under the bed. He pulled clothes from the wardrobe, squashing t-shirts, jeans, everything in any old way. There was no expression on his face now but Maggie could tell by the set of his jaw that he was at the limit of his endurance.

‘Col, we can’t leave now,’ she said, standing in the doorway. ‘We have to be here in case… when…’

He stared at her, his lips pressed together. He was furious, she could tell, but when he spoke his voice was quiet. Not a gentle kind of quiet, though, but guarded, as if he was afraid of saying too much.

‘Maggie, I just can’t look at you and think of what happened. I have to get away. I’m going to Looe; I promised Joe I’d be back before bedtime. You stay on here if you want, or go back to Carlton Bridge. You know they won’t find her alive now.’

‘No,’ she said, reaching out to him, but he pushed past her to get his things from the bathroom. ‘Colin. Please. We have to get through this together. Joe needs us to be his–’

‘Livvy needed us too,’ he said, and his use of the past tense hurt her even more than the news that it had been a girl called Meredith she’d spent so long staring at today, not Livvy. She watched as he finished packing and then followed him out to the car. He was going to leave again, and this time he wasn’t going to come back.

‘Please, Colin, please don’t go.’

‘No, Maggie. I just– I can’t.’

He flung himself into the driving seat and stabbed the key into the ignition.

This time she didn’t wave as the car bumped away from the cottage.

Blog Tour-Book Review ABSENT by EMMA SALISBURY

BOOK: Absent

AUTHOR: Emma Salisbury

GENRE: Thriller, Crime

CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE THE BOOK (amazon)

ABSENT by EMMA SALISBURY is the fourth book in THE DS COUPLAND SERIES. It’s a fast paced book with a cast that has been with us since Book 1 of the series, though the book can be read as a standalone novel as well.

DS Coupland, a hardworking, good man is a cop whose life has taken a 360 turn. In the last novel, he killed off a serial killer after his family, and he is still dealing with its aftermath. However, with new chapter, comes unforeseen danger that seems like a catastrophe in light of what has already happened. He unveils a human trafficking group and their far-reaching power. This novel sees him juggling pressures in the work as well as at home.

The book is fast paced, with tale woven in such a way that keeps the readers at the edge of their seats. All the characters have so much to offer and we explore that as the story progresses. The book shows the hard work and predicaments of law enforcement, along with them trying to overcome personal stuff.

The author has done a fantastic job on the book. She has created characters with whom the readers can sympathize and empathize. The story is written in such a marvelous way that helps readers catch up with what has happened in the previous book, as well as maintain the mystery and essence of the newness in the story. Each book’s adventure is different from the other, yet the story seems connected in a way that makes the readers invest in the characters and build a relationship with them overtime.
