Morning lovelies! Today I’m on the blog tour for One For The Road by Morgen Bailey…..

the blurb

Panicked at killing a man on a Northamptonshire country road, drunk driver Liam Ross buries the body in the woods. The man was an undercover cop. When Liam returns to the woods… the body has disappeared.

Set in present-day Northamptonshire, England, ‘One for the Road’ focuses on three interweaving threads: the repercussions for drunk driver Liam Ross after he hits a man on a country road when yet another argument with live-in nurse girlfriend, Jo, has driven him to the pub on that fateful night; gang underling Barry ‘Not Gary’ Newman; and newly married Todd Litten aka Neil Ryder, the policeman who was just doing his job.

my review

The story follows three different people, whose stories intertwine. We meet Liam and his girlfriend Jo – they have their own problems but then Liam, whilst drunk driving, hits a man on his way home from the pub and ends up burying him in the woods….but then his body disappears.

We also meet Barry who is in a gang….he’s known to finish people off when they need ‘disposing of’. And finally we meet Todd – an undercover policeman.

I’m not going to give the plot away, so you’ll need to read to find out how each of their lives and stories cross and intertwine!

One For the Road had me hooked – I just wanted to find out what happened next…… Some of the characters I fell in love with, others I absolutely didn’t like at all!  Some of their actions throughout the book shocked me…..especially Liam!

I did feel that the book came to quite a sudden end, I definitely think we could have had a bit more going on (and keeping me hooked!).  There was also a massive cliffhanger….and I don’t think we’ll ever know what happened!

Overall, I enjoyed this and look forward to reading more from Morgen.
