Blood Harvest by Sharon Bolton Review

Blood Harvest

Blood Harvest will keep you guessing and you won’t be able to put it down.

After reading Sharon Bolton’s Lacey Flint series of crime thrillers I am a huge fan of her writing and couldn’t wait to start reading Blood Harvest and again I wasn’t disappointed.

The Fletcher’s have just moved to a small town on the edge of the moors with their 3 children; 10 year old Tom, 6 year old Joe and 2 year old Millie. Their new house is built next door to 1 of 2 churches; one old and abandoned and the replacement built next door.

Things are all good until Tom sees a strange girl wandering the churchyard and she seems to be obsessed with the Fletcher children, especially Millie, but for what purpose no one knows and his parents think his is making it up as no one,  apart from Joe and Millie have seen her..

Harry is the new vicar for the town but while people are friendly he is not made to feel welcome and there are strange things happening within the church and the whole town seem to have some very old and bizarre traditions.

When Dr Evi Oliver starts to see a new patient from the town, Gillian, whose young daughter died in a house fire, things start to take a bad turn.

With the strange going-ons in town and mysterious child deaths it falls to Evi and Harry to get to the bottom of it before another child can get hurt or die.

Another great story by Sharon Bolton that is not only thrilling and scary but her writing style brings you to the edge and back before finally revealing the unexpected twist. Blood Harvest will keep you guessing and you won’t be able to put it down.

With some great characters that have depth, strange childlike figures wondering around a town that holds some horrible secrets, Blood Harvest is a book that will keep you up all night and just when you think you have figured out who is the murderer you will be forced to change your mind again.
