I'm so excited to be a part of the blog tour for this new title from Bloodhound Books! I absolutely love helping shine a light on smaller publishers!
Till the Dust Settles by Pat Young
(Bloodhound Books ~ July 27, 2017)
This title is available on the Amazon Kindle store for 99 cents and is a part of the Kindle Unlimited subscription as well. Thanks to the publisher for providing me with a review copy of this book – all opinions are my own.
The lives of two women who never meet are about to collide.
Lucie married young. Her husband has become abusive, controlling and violent. Having lost everything as a result of the marriage, Lucie decides it is time to walk away.
As she leaves the house on the morning of September 11th, heading to a job interview at the World Trade Centre and the promise of a new life, the unthinkable happens.
On a street in New York, choking on the dust, Lucie stumbles upon an opportunity for a new life.
She thought the grass would be greener. But starting again is never that simple…
Sometimes, what lies ahead is even more deadly.
Young has presented readers with a unique premise with TILL THE DUST SETTLES – that of the terror attacks on the World Trade Center of September 11, 2011 and a tale of stolen identity, domestic abuse and conspiracy. I kept being surprised at the twists that the story took, and with the exception of a few questionable turns, I was sucked into this book! Lucie is a Scottish runner who came to the US on scholarship and had her life take a very different turn due to decisions she made, leading her to a very very dark time in her life and marriage. 9/11 turns her entire existence upside down and both offers her a chance to escape and thrusts her into new dangers.
Recommended for suspense fans who are looking for a completely original storyline!
Pat Young grew up in the south west of Scotland where she still lives, sometimes. She often goes to the other extreme, the south west of France, in search of sunlight.
Pat never expected to be a writer. Then she found a discarded book with a wad of cash tucked in the flyleaf. ‘What if something awful happened to the person who lost this book?’ she thought, and she was off.
Pat knew nothing of writing, but she knew a thing or two about books, having studied English, French and German at Glasgow University. A passion for languages led to a career she loved and then a successful part-time business that allowed her some free-time, at last.
Pat had plans, none of which included sitting at her desk from daybreak till dusk. But some days she has to. Because there’s a story to be told. And when it’s done, she can go out to play. On zip-wires and abseil ropes, or just the tennis court.
Pat writes psychological thrillers. Till the Dust Settles is her debut, from Bloodhound Books.
