The Old You by Louise Voss #BookReview #BlogTour

Nail-bitingly modern domestic noir
A tense, Hitchcockian psychological thriller
Louise Voss returns with her darkest, most chilling, novel yet…

Lynn Naismith gave up the job she loved when she married Ed, the love of her life, but it was worth it for the happy years they enjoyed together. Now, ten years on, Ed has been diagnosed with early-onset dementia, and things start to happen; things more sinister than missing keys and lost words. As some memories are forgotten, others, long buried, begin to surface … and Lynn’s perfect world begins to crumble. 
But is it Ed’s mind playing tricks, or hers…?

I'm thrilled to be hosting the blog tour for The Old You by Louise Voss today Many thanks to the author, Orenda Books and Anne Cater for inviting me and for my advance copy of the novel.
At the start of The Old You, Ed Naismith is diagnosed with Pick's Disease, a rare and progressive form of dementia. It's the same illness which killed his father and so both he and his wife, Lynn know …

#BlogTours coming up on Hair Past A Freckle this Autumn




I can't believe it's September already, the six weeks of the school summer holidays have flown by again. This year only two of my daughters have that back to school feeling as my eldest has finished, she collected her A-Level results in August - and is now officially smarter than me! I'll be starting my new job as a 1:1 teaching assistant and cover TA on Monday so my reading hours may be curtailed a little but I'm still looking forward to reading and reviewing plenty of books this coming Autumn. I thought some of you might like a sneak peek at some of the blog tours I already have planned for September and October.

September
That old September feeling, left over from school days, of summer passing, vacation nearly done, obligations gathering, books and football in the air ... Another fall, another turned page: there was something of jubilee in that annual autumnal beginning, as if last year's mistakes had been wiped clean by summer.  
Wallace Stegner, Angle of Repose
