#BlogTour – #BookReview of #YouNeverSaidGoodbye by @LucaVeste @HodderBooks @JennyPlatt90

I’m thrilled to welcome you today to my stop on the blog tour for superb psychological thriller You Never Said Goodbye by Luca Veste. Thank you to Jenny Platt and Hodder & Stoughton for giving me the opportunity to read and review this fabulous book.

About the book:


Sam Cooper has a happy life: a good job, a blossoming relationship. Yet, there’s something he can
never forget – the image seared into his mind of his mother, Laurie, dying when he was a child. His
father allowed his grief to tear them apart and Sam hasn’t seen him in years.


Until an unexpected call from Firwood hospital, asking Sam to come home, puts in motion a chain of
devastating events. On his deathbed, Sam’s father makes a shocking confession.


Who was Laurie Cooper? It’s clear that everything Sam thought he knew about his mother was
wrong. And now he’s determined to find out exactly what she did and why – whatever the cost.

What happens if you discover you’ve been lied to by your own family for twenty-five years?

Sam Cooper is about to find out.

About the author:

Luca Veste is a writer of Italian and Liverpudlian heritage, married with two young daughters, and one of nine children. He studied psychology and criminology at university in Liverpool. He is the author of the Murphy and Rossi series, which includes DEAD GONE, THE DYING PLACE, BLOODSTREAM, and THEN SHE WAS GONE. 

Part psychological thriller, part police procedural, his books follow the detective pairing of DI David Murphy and DS Laura Rossi. The novels are set in Liverpool, bringing the city to life in a dark and terrifying manner…with just a splash of Scouse humour.

My Review:

You Never Said Goodbye by Luca Veste is a tense and exciting psychological thriller that will keep you guessing right through to the final shocking conclusion. A dark and compelling read, it is a fast moving tale that had me hooked from the very first page.

Sam Cooper lost his mother and brother in a car accident over two decades ago. His father survived the accident but his grief and anger tore him apart and Sam hasn’t seen him for many years. Now his father is dying and Sam receives a phone call asking him to go home to say goodbye to the man he now barely knows. But then his father makes a shocking confession that changes everything Sam thought he knew. Is it possible that Laurie Cooper could still be alive? Determined to find out the truth, Sam sets out on a journey that he hopes will answer everything…

You Never Said Goodbye is a tense and gripping thriller that I thoroughly enjoyed from beginning to end! The writing is sharp, the characters interesting and the plot believable. With the intrigue and suspense ratcheting up to breaking point, the story moves along at a cracking pace, keeping you guessing as the story moves forward to its final, shocking conclusion.. 

Luca Veste has written yet another superb psychological thriller that will have you racing through the pages, not wanting to put it down until the final exhilarating page has been turned. Fantastic, thrilling and exciting, it is quite possibly the author’s best book so far.

You Never Said Goodbye is a fast paced and addictive read that I would highly recommend.
