Listen, listen to the wind and stone.
Listen, listen to the sounds of old.

Listen, listen to the sounds that bullets make of blood and bones.

How will you ever get away?”
This is NOT a romance. This is a ride.
Blood and Bone

The clicking of heels walking in a misty alley.
The ability to tie a cherry stem with her tongue.

Book Review ~ ‘Blood and Bone’ by Tara Brown ~ 4 Stars!
Well, wow! This book is just mind-blowing, and in a really good way!
We follow the story of Jane, a young girl who has amnesia after a car accident. She has a loving boyfriend, Derek, and a cat called Binx, and she feels secure, even happy…sometimes. That is until she is mysteriously mistaken for another woman, Samantha Barnes, and so her ordinary life turns upside down.
It is so difficult to put into words just what an explosive story ‘Blood and Bone’ is. At the end of each chapter, you are left desperate for more, desperate to know what the truth is, and which people Jane can trust. I really loved her character, and her inner dialogue was perfect, giving us a really good insight into her troubled mind and just how disconcerting it is for her to find out that everything she thought was real was a lie.
‘Blood and Bone’ is one of those books that I can’t describe the storyline, or even the characters for, because it is something that you have to read and experience yourself. Not knowing who to trust, and which characters to fall for, it was a roller coaster ride and you are left guessing right up the very end.
Tara Brown has delivered a solid psychological thriller, with so many great elements in the mix. There’s romance, danger, action and a strong psychological element, that has you unnerved just reading along with Jane and Sam’s thoughts.
I give ‘Blood and Bone’ a strong 4 stars. I couldn’t quite give it 5 stars because at the end, I was still slightly confused about just how everything fitted together. But this book has had me thinking about it for days after finishing it, which is the best sign of a good read that there is!
