                                                           BLOG TOUR! 
                                      Random Acts of Unkindness by Jacqueline Ward 

I am delighted to start off the Blog Tour for this incredible book! Jacqueline Ward is a wonderful writer, who's characters jump off the page, grab you, and pull you into their story. This is a tale of motherhood, love and loss and will have you thinking about it long after you've finished reading. 

                               How far would you go to find your child?

This is the question that sets the tone for this addictive novel. DS Jan Pearce's teenage son Aiden is missing, presumed a runaway. Her ex-husband is of no help whatsoever, and her job is becoming more demanding by the day. On the search for evidence to bring to justice one of the biggest criminals that just happens to hide behind the facade of a philanthropist with the community's best interests at heart, she comes across another mystery... one that may just help her solve an unbelievably heinous crime that has gone undiscovered for decades! 

Warning! Do not pick up this book unless you have some time on your hands, because once you start reading, you won't want to put it down! 

I loved DS Pearce from the first page, she's gutsy, determined, and understandably falling apart, as she singlehandedly searches for her missing child. Despite making mistakes and a few questionable decisions along the way, I was on her side from the word go, and found myself wondering what I'd do in her shoes, how far would I be willing to go for my children? Random Acts of Unkindness had me gripped, desperate to read the next page, but fearful as to what I'd find.  

The parallels between Jan and Bessy Swains lives are brilliantly done, and hearing Bessy's story will break your heart into a million tiny pieces. Don't expect a straightforward whodunnit, but a rollercoaster of a ride, with incredible twists and turns. And a horrendous, nauseating crime that will horrify and shock you.  

I'm so glad that this is the first in a series, Jacqueline Ward has created a fascinating new character, and I can't wait to find out what case DS Jan Pearce gets involved next!
