what a great read! It's safe to say I’m not a football fan, at all in the slightest, but this was a book that looked and sounded really interesting. It offers more than football though and is worth reading.
This book had a good balance to it, enough to keep you interested and wanting to read on.
Jason Cloony is on a roll. Rolling high, enjoying his stardom with his football and a beautiful lady to share an evening with after his amazing goal, leaves him on cloud 9.
Arranging to meet her again, he's shocked when she doesn't turn up. He's sure they were both enjoying each others company.
Things take an odd turn when it appears that the lady he had his date with turns out to be a woman who has been missing for over 12 months.
Things take a funny turn, and everything is clearly not as it should be. This is one of those books that can keep you guessing, keep you on the edge of your seat, yet leave you needing to read on. It's very well written and the story is brilliantly told. Don't let the football side of the story put you off, the football is more of the back setting of this book and this is not Just a football book. The characters are developed well, and believable.
This is probably one of those books i'd have overlooked, luckily I was invited to take part in the blog tour which forced me into reading the book, i'm so glad that happened, it was fate i'm sure. lol.
