Book Review – I Dare You by Sam Carrington @sam_carrington1 @AvonBooksUK #BookReview #BookBlogger #suspense

Happy New Year!!!

Can a secret hidden for 30 years cause havoc even today?

Yes! Yes! Yes! Especially if author Sam Carrington had written it. A brilliant book, the best way to start the new year.

2 girls played a Knock, knock game on a man ostracized by the entire village until one came back and the other was lost forever. The man was charged with murder and sent to prison. But he was released now, and secrets had to be revealed.

Wow! The blurb and the premise of the story pulled me in. The author played on my curiosity, page after page, until I knew nothing but the story. The outside world disappeared for me. The chapters were short and snappy giving me clues to the mystery. The dual timeliness too added to the delicious mystery that this story was.

The suspense built up progressively as the author’s writing tightened the screws on the prose with her powerful imagery. That kept me completely hypnotized until the final reveal which knocked me out completely. I got a hint of the finale, but nothing could deter me from being enthralled by this story.

A perfect book for the new year. I loved it!!

I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

All my reviews can be read here


Mapledon, 1989
Two little girls were out playing a game of dares. Only one returned home.

The ten-year-old told police what she saw: village loner Bill ‘Creepy’ Cawley dragged her friend into his truck and disappeared.

No body was found, but her testimony sent Cawley to prison for murder. An open and shut case, the right man behind bars.
The village could sleep safe once again.

Anna thought she had left Mapledon and her nightmares behind but a distraught phone call brings her back to face her past.

30 years ago, someone lied. 30 years ago, the man convicted wasn’t the only guilty party.
Now he’s out of prison and looking for revenge. The question is, who will he start with?

Publication Date: December 2019

  1. That blurb sounds fantastic. It also reminds me of an old man that used to live on our street. He didn’t kill anyone or get arrested, but we gave him a way harder time than he deserved (nothing too harsh). Absolutely hate my younger self for it.
