The Lynmouth Stories by LV Hay

Beautiful places hide dark secrets … 

Devon’s very own crime writer L.V Hay (The Other Twin, Do No Harm) brings forth three new short stories from her dark mind and poison pen:

– For kidnapped Meg and her young son Danny, In Plain Sight, the remote headland above Lynmouth is not a haven, but hell.

– A summer of fun for Catherine in Killing Me Softly becomes a winter of discontent … and death.

– In Hell And High Water, a last minute holiday for Naomi and baby Tommy  becomes a survival situation … But that’s before the village floods.

All taking place out of season when the majority of tourists have gone home, L.V Hay uses her local knowledge to bring forth dark and claustrophic noir she has come to be known for.

Did You Know …?

Known as England’s ‘Little Switzerland’, the Devon village of Lynmouth is famous for its Victorian cliff railway, fish n’ chips and of course, RD Blackmore’s Lorna Doone.

Located on the doorstep of the dramatic Valley of The Rocks and the South West Cliff Path, the twin villages of Lynton and Lynmouth have inspired many writers, including 19th Century romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, who honeymooned there in 1812.

My Review

5 Stars

This is a collection of three short stories that take place in Lynmouth, Devon. All three happen in the tourist off season with just adds to the hopeless feel of the victims. In Plain Sight is the story of Meg and her son Danny that have been kidnapped. It’s what we don’t know about this that makes this story do scary.

In Killing Me Softly we meet Catherine and her own troubles that haunt her. The question is what is real and if Catherine can same herself from her situation. And finally in Hell And High Water we meet Naomi and Tommy. They are in a bad situation and might not make it out alive.

I am hesitant when it comes to reading collections of stories. I don’t always like the stories and really had wasting time reading stories that I don’t like. Have no fear, The Lynmouth Stories are some that I absolutely loved. They are dark and twisted and I loved all three.

The three stories in this book are a wonderful introduction to LV Hay and her writing style. I have to say that I loved this book and can’t wait to read more from LV Hays. This is one thriller that you need to read!!

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.

I would like to thank Rachel’s Random Resources for the opportunity to read and share this book.

My Review
5 Stars

World War III came and a lot of major cities were nuked. Civilization has lost a lot but there is one group that is trying to put the pieces back together, the New World Order. But the question is if they really have man’s best interest in mind or if they are just a new power hungry group willing to kill off the masses to keep their new found power.

Raphael King was a journalist but lost everything when the bombs were dropped. He has been drinking his life away since but finds his way to his sister in law, Jaxie. He slowly comes around from his drunken state to see that the New World Order is not the savior that they are claiming to be. Raphael and Jaxie start a resistance group and plan to stop the New World Order.

We all know what kind of a sucker I am for a good dystopian/apocalyptic story. Add in some realistic conspiracy stories and you have me over the moon. I quickly got into this story and couldn’t put the book down. There are a lot of things that make you think about the world today and what could happen.

Raphael lost everything so I understand him falling into the bottle. But I was over joyed when he teams up with Jaxie to start fighting the New World Order. This book has some good twists and turns that kept me guessing and ended in such a way that it could be part of a series. This is a great story and one that I recommend checking out. I really do hope this will become a series. I would love to read more about Raphael and Jaxie.
