I've been following Gillian McAllister on Twitter and Instagram for quite a while now, and I knew that eventually I would need to pick up one of her books and see what her writing was like and if I liked it. It seemed pretty likely, since I liked what she shared on social media and could relate to her story (though only in a wish sense), her having quit her job to write full time.
So I finally picked up her debut book. It makes sense to me to start at the beginning, even if the author's books aren't connected, because then if they're good you get to keep going with them and see how much better they become.
I loved it. I didn't know what to expect, exactly, and that was fun for me. I really enjoyed it and read the entire book in two evenings.
Here's the review I posted (usual caveat: I suck at writing reviews):
"A compelling read from start to finish. I couldn't put this book down as numerous mysteries unfolded within its pages and I had to see what happened next. I can't wait to pick up her next book."
I will definitely read more of her work, but first, I have some others to read. Up next is "The Four Before Me" by E.H. Knight, another writer I found through Twitter (and by the looks of it, another Indie publication)
See you on the other side.
