A Flash of Blue

Review

Since Amber's eighteen year old brother Liam died suddenly a year ago, her life has been miserable as her family struggles with their grief. So when Liam's best friend Tyler shows an interest she feels she has found someone who understands. However, she soon finds she is involved in something beyond her control and things go from bad to worse. Can she find the strength and resolve to put things right when her whole life feels such a mess?

A gripping story of love, grief, friendship and trust. The characters and their situations are completely believable and Amber's doubts, guilt and confused emotions are written with real understanding. Ultimately uplifting, this is a compelling read.
