Linked by Emma Hill
The first novel of The Linked Saga ties romance and
mystery with unforeseen twists. Author Emma Hill tells the story
of a man living in England, who travels home to Australia to visit
his uncle. Life, death and a string of indecisions unveil many
hidden secrets that will change his life forever. An explosive
introduction, involving his sister’s children, who were kidnapped
years earlier, will have you hanging onto every word as you
become a very real part of this novel.
Combining romance and mystery, with undeniably the best
of unforeseen twists, he meets someone unexpectedly and soon
realises that the only way to survive is by learning the truth about
things that before seemed so unreal . Inside every heart and soul is
a story that’s waiting to be told.
I really, really enjoyed this book. Matt has arrived at his uncle's home in Australia for an unannounced holiday. He has been living and working in England and left out of the family loop, it seems especially when it comes to the kidnapping of niece and nephew and subsequent murder of the nephew. His family life gets even more complicated, then his personal life and he encounters several twists and turns as he tries to figure out exactly what is going on!
I liked the story line and that just when you think you have everything figured out there is another twist to throw you. The mix of characters was intriguing and I really liked Matt. He missed his family while he was running his business but took his responsibility very seriously. The twists within the family and the secrets keep you intrigued.
I rate this a 4/5. It was a good romantic mystery and I look forward to reading more from this author.
