Review: Blue Hill Blood by Elizabeth Gray

Posted on

Henry –
My past is gruesome and unforgettable no matter how hard I try to let go.
Writing is my escape. My only therapy.
When I met my wife, had children, and my career sky-rocketed, I thought I’d never revisit those dark days again.
So, the moment Blue Hill, Maine beckons for me, I go willingly in an effort to write the next big story.
But when a ghost from my past shows up, all of my carefully rebuilt walls come crumbling down hard and fast. My only way of defense is ripped from my grasp as this distraction bounces into my life.
Will I be able to sift through what’s fiction to find reality?

Eli –
I’m a serial killer. A victim of narcissism and the need to satisfy my own urges. I have a thirst to snuff out the lives of those that remind me of her—the woman that ruined me—and I take great pleasure in quenching that thirst.
I have no rules. No parameters. I do as I please.
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Henry McElroy, is my god. His sick, twisted mind constructs the world to which I rule. I would be nothing without him—my dark creator.

***
What happens when Henry McElroy’s story begins to take a realistic form the moment he sets foot in the sleepy, seaside town in Maine? As soon as he begins sharing excerpts of his book with his fans on social media, including an obsessive one he meets in Blue Hill, bodies begin to stack up in similar fashion to that of which he writes about. Will the blame be placed on the town’s newest and most twisted visitor? Or will Henry be able to prove his innocence and clear his name before it’s too late?


My Review

BOOM! My mind has been blown! I can’t even right now! I have no words. Like what did I just read?? 

I’m going to be honest with you, I had no real idea what I was going into when I picked up this book. All I knew was that one of my favorite authors was writing a new series under a new pen name. Who is this author, you might ask? It’s author K. Webster. Now, if you know me, then you know that I am a big, huge fan of her books. But, let me tell you, this book; it’s unlike anything you’ve read from her before!

Blue Hill Blood is unique. It is dark. It is twisted. It will blow your freaking mind. This is not a hearts and flowers type of book and is definitely not for the faint at heart.  I found myself on the edge of my seat from the very first page. That’s right. The. Very. First. Page. From that moment I was hooked. I couldn’t believe what I was reading. All I knew was that I had to read more. And the more I read, the more desperate I was for information.

Blue Hill Blood is well written and captivating. It will keep you on the edge of your seat. You will easily get lost in the world and characters that Elizabeth Gray has created. This story will mess with your mind as you try to put all the pieces together. The twists and turns will keep you guessing right until the very end.  And let me tell you, the twits; they just kept coming. By the end of the story, I was high-fiving myself for figuring out what was going on. I didn’t know all of it, but I was right for the most part.

Blue Hill Blood is one of those books that it’s best to not read spoilers for. And trust me, there are so many things I want to gush about and discuss right now. But, I’m not going to do that. You need to go into this story blind. Enjoy the thrill of solving the mystery. The only little tidbit that you’re going to get from me is this: If you liked the movies Gone Girl or The Usual Suspects, you are going to love this book.

*I was provided an ARC copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review*
