The Fake Date by Lynda Stacey

As you'll know I'm a huge fan of Lynda's books - I thoroughly enjoyed The Fake Date* and today's publication day! Congratulations Lynda!

Nine hours and eleven minutes … 
That’s how long it’s been since Ella Hope was beaten to within an inch of life and left for dead. 

She lies, unable to move and praying for somebody to find her, as she counts down the minutes and wonders who could have hated her so much to have hurt her so badly. 

Was it the man she went on a date with the previous evening, the man linked to the deaths of two other women? Or somebody else, somebody who wants her out of the picture so much they’re willing to kill? 

Whoever it is, they will pay. All Ella has to do first is survive…

My thoughts?

Journalist, Ella Hope is brutally attacked and left for dead. She'd been investigating Rick Greaves, local hard man and gym owner whose two wives died in mysterious circumstances. She's always been keen to quickly scoop that elusive story at whatever the cost.

She slowly recovers finding it hard to trust and be around men. Her folks buy her a gorgeous little pup to help her feel more secure. She slowly rebuilds her life with the help of her new neighbour, kind, friendly and handsome Will. Will has secrets however..

When Rick's found not guilty this sets her back and makes her more anxious that her attacker is still at large and could be coming back to finish what they started... A brilliant read (which I read in two sittings) with a few explosive twists I didn't see coming. Highly recommend.
