#BlogTour – #BookReview of #TheChoice by Alex Lake @Alexlakeauthor @fictionpubteam @RandomTTours #RandomThingsTours

A little later in the day than planned, I’m pleased to welcome you to my stop on the blog tour for tense and gripping thriller The Choice by Alex Lake. Thank you to Harper Collins and Anne Cater for giving me the opportunity to read and review this fast moving and intense book.

About the book:


A kidnap…

Matt Westbrook only turned his back for a moment. But when he looks around, his car – with his three young children inside – has vanished.

A ransom…

Panicked, Matt assumes a car thief has got more than he bargained for, but then he starts to receive text messages: This is a kidnap. If you want to see your children again, you will exchange them for your wife.

A choice…

Matt and his wife Annabelle are horrified. They can’t involve the police, or their children will be killed. Which means they have to choose: Annabelle, or their children. Either option is unthinkable. But one is inevitable. And they have only hours to make their decision…

The gripping new thriller you won’t be able to put down!

About the author:

Alex Lake is a British novelist who was born in the North West of England. After Anna, the author’s first novel written under this pseudonym, was a No.1 bestselling ebook sensation and a top-ten Sunday Times bestseller. The author now lives in the North East of the US.

My Review:

The Choice by Alex Lake is a tense and gripping thriller that keeps you on your toes throughout. Every time I thought I’d worked out exactly what was happening, the author threw another curveball that changed my mind yet again. It’s an intense and pulse racing read that captured my imagination from the very first page and didn’t let go until the final, exhilarating page had been turned.

After popping into a shop to buy a few essentials Matt Westbrook returns to where he parked his car to be faced with the unimaginable. His car, with his three young children inside, has disappeared. Thinking it must be a car theft gone wrong, Matt begins to panic. But then he receives a text message that makes it clear this is no ordinary theft: His children have been kidnapped. And the ransom the kidnapper wants isn’t money, it’s Annabelle, Matt’s wife! So the couple have a choice to make. Either Annabelle must hand herself over to the kidnapper or their children must die. Either option is unthinkable, but one is inevitable. And they only have a few hours to come to a decision…

What follows is an intense and fast paced thriller that had me racing through the pages, desperate to see what the outcome would be. The last few chapters in particular were so gripping I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough! The Choice is one of those books that has you on the edge of your seat and, even once the kidnapper is finally revealed, doesn’t slow down even for a second.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Alex Lake’s writing is strong and the exciting and emotionally intense plot kept me riveted from beginning to end. A superb thriller that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

The Choice by Alex Lake is available to purchase now: Amazon UK
