The Weekend by L.H. Stacey

I’m so pleased to be part of the tour today for this chilling book. Thanks so much to Rachel’s Random Resources and Boldwood Books for the copy of the book and invitation to be part of the tour.

That Lake. This house. His friends. They all know what happened to my boy. I know they do. And you… you have to help me find the truth…

A weekend to remember…

Ten years ago, deeply in love, I would have done anything for Thomas Kirkwood.

But on the night of our graduation, fuelled by drink and drugs, Thomas’s lifeless body was found floating in the Kirkwood family lake. That weekend changed everything, and I swore I would never return to Kirkwood manor.

A weekend to forget…

Now, ten years later, I have been invited back to the place that holds such terrible memories for me, to a memorial weekend for Thomas, organised by his still-grieving mother Ada.

But this is no ordinary weekend. This is a reunion to catch a killer…and I fear that I could be top of Ada’s list….

Perfect for fans of Teresa Driscoll, Sue Watson, Jackie Kabler and Kendra Elliot.

My Review –

I really enjoyed this chilling book. It starts off with a really arresting prologue and then we delve back into the series of events surrounding the shocking outcome of that weekend.

I liked the dual timeline, which gives us more insight into the past, and then brings us back to the present day, where everyone has been invited back to the scene of the crime for a memorial ten years later.

The novel is very descriptive and I think that this really adds to the spooky and tense atmosphere. The lake with the weeping willow, the woods, the hedonistic atmosphere surrounding that eventful weekend and even the hot weather which lends itself to a languid pace, all contribute to the build up of suspense.

The pace is slow but this matches the plot very well. None of the characters are particularly likeable, but perhaps this is deliberate, as there are many suspects.

Overall, a really well written and mysterious story, well worth a read.

My Rating –

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Author Bio –

As well as being the author of seven books, Stacey also works full time as a Sales Director. She’s also a fully qualified scuba diving instructor and has been known to happily jump in the sea with sharks, without a cage.

Following a life changing car accident in 2008, Stacey was left with limited mobility in her right arm. Unable to teach scuba diving professionally anymore, she turned to her love of writing, a hobby she’d followed avidly since being a teenager.

Her own life story, along with varied career choices helps Stacey to create stories with challenging and unpredictable plots.

Stacey’s debut novel ‘House of Secrets’ was published in 2016 under her full name of Lynda Stacey and her latest book ‘The Serial Killer’s Girl’ was published by Boldwood Books in April 2022, under her new author title of L.H. Stacey.
