#BlogTour #BloodLines by #LinLeVersha @linleversha published by @HobeckBooks 10.04.2022 

Eighteen year-old Darcy Woodard appears to have it all – intelligence, good looks and artistic gifts. His teachers adore him, as does former policewoman Steph Grant, who is now the receptionist at Darcy’s college. 

But beneath the surface – all is not as it seems. Darcy is convinced he doesn’t fit in. He tries to ignore their online taunts. There’s Darcy’s dysfunctional mother Esther who is trapped in a literary time warp. Then there’s his sister Marianne, who Darcy desperately wants to protect from the dark forces that surround her. 

​Then tragedy rocks Darcy’s life when a drugs gang forces its way into his life and all the people he cares for. 

​What can Steph and her former boss DI Hale do to protect the local community? And can they really trust Darcy to help them defeat the county lines gang? 

Thank you so much to Hobeck books for my copy of Blood Lines and for inviting me to the Blog Tour.

So this is the second in the now retired from the Police Steph Grant mysteries and after the brilliant Blood Notes, I couldn’t wait to dive in!

And in typical Lin Le Versha style the first few pages set the scene with a pretty gruesome scenario! And it doesnt end there ( if youre a bit of a lightweight you may gag!), some spic descriptions of gore start the reader on a path of exceptional writing in Blood Lines.

Steph Grant is happy with her simple life with Derek the dog and her ex Boss now boyfriend DI Hale, and loves her receptionists job at the local college.

But when drugs seem to be infiltrating college life involing one family and a tragic death, Steph gets drawn into a web of lies, dangerous people and drugs involving County lines drug running. She is enlisted to go undercover as a Civilian Detective to help fibnd out what is happening.

We are then led on an intense journey until the climactic finale, (I’m not giving any spoilers away!).

Another fabulous easy, quick and enthralling read by Lin le Versha, choc full of a great cast of characters old and new, for anyone who likes cosy mysteries with an edge the Steph Grant series is a must.

A highly excellent read and worthy of 4 stars.

I've been a bookworm since I was able to read my first Janet & John books at 4 years old! I have read so many books, that I wish I had kept a list since I was young. My words are my own, my opinions are my own!
