Review of Turned by Clare Revell

Recently, I reviewed Turned by Clare Revell.

In this suspense tale of a woman on the run, the author has crafted intricate subplots and has cleverly interwoven them throughout the story. Though the age gap between Dane and Amy was bigger than I prefer, in no way did it detract from the beautiful love story that unfolded. Also, the author did a good job of ramping up the tension in the book as well as providing non-British readers with a story packed with cultural flair (as the story is set in England). The cultural lesson I received was icing on the cake of an already delicious suspense novel (additionally, the author provided me with enough context to understand terms that were not familiar to me; I appreciated this).

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys suspense, romantic suspense, or stories set in England.

The author provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for my unbiased review. The opinion expressed here is my own.

Book description:

Turned upside down by misadventure 
Amy Childs is late for a party when she makes an illegal turn and hits a pedestrian–the brother of one of the most corrupt men in town. Now her brush with the law has her running for her life from those who want retribution. 

Torn apart by tragedy 
Detective Sgt. Dane Philips lost his wife to a serial killer. He's juggled work and parenting his two daughters since but can no longer cope. To save his job he must find a live-in nanny immediately. While he knows he shouldn't hire someone without references, he desperately needs someone. Perhaps Amy is an answer to prayer. 
But as events take a sinister turn, only a miracle can save them all from destruction. Is Amy the woman of his dreams or the start of a nightmare?
