Driven by Kerena Swan

4 Stars from me

The humanity screams from the pages of this book – Kerena Swan is unrivalled in her ability to breathe warmth and life into the characters of books.

DI Paton and his son Tommy are just superb and I enjoyed following each of them; the glimpse into their minds felt like a privilege.

This book is full of sweet, spot on observations of people, emotions and situations. I really can’t praise that enough.

Woven throughout Driven is a series of dilemmas and it was excruciating at times watching the different characters agonise over what they should do. There were so many times I was internally screaming at Woody, urging him to do the right thing.

Overall, this is a clever, tight story and I am grateful to Rachel’s Random Resources and Kerena Swan for letting me be a part of this blog tour.

Every mother’s worst nightmare

It was only for a couple of minutes, while dropping Noah off at nursery. Little did Melanie realise that leaving her sleeping son in the car would end up being the biggest regret of her life.

A teenage prank turns sour

For teenager Woody, joyriding with his new friend helps alleviate the tedium of a life of poverty and boredom. This isn’t what he wants to do with his life but for now, he feels accepted. Except on this occasion, his actions have consequences that could change his life forever. Is it too late to turn his life around?

How far would you go to save those you love?

While DI Paton is on the case of the missing child, he is quickly drawn into a web of deception that hits dangerously close to home. He quickly finds himself torn in two, not knowing which way to turn: save his career or his family? Will he be able to crack the case before he himself cracks?
