Today I have the pleasure of sharing my review for Stop at Nothing by Tammy Cohen as part of the blog tour and I’d like to thank Anne Cater of Random Things Tours for the invite and the publishers for the copy of the book.
About the book

Tess has always tried to be a good mother. Of course, there are things she wishes she’d done differently, but doesn’t everyone feel that way?
Then Emma, her youngest, is attacked on her way home from a party, plunging them into a living nightmare which only gets worse when the man responsible is set free
But what if she fails?
So when Tess sees the attacker in the street near their home, she is forced to take matters into her own hands. But blinded by her need to protect her daughter at any cost, might she end up putting her family in even greater danger?
There’s nothing she wouldn’t do to make it right . . .

Don’t you just love it when you pick up a book, you’ve read the blurb so you think you have an idea of what you’re going to be reading and then it totally blows your socks off? Well that’s what happened to me when I read Stop at Nothing. Socks totally blown off.
As a parent, you want to protect your children no matter what and when Tess’s youngest daughter Emma is attacked on the way home from a party and the man responsible isn’t charged and set free, Tess is in turmoil. Emma’s struggling but trying to hide it from her mum and Tess doesn’t know how to help her.
You’d be forgiven for thinking that this book is a simple book about a mother’s revenge, that’s what I got from the description but it is so much more. Tess is going through the menopause, she’s struggling to come to terms with her husbands betrayal and their divorce, her eldest daughter won’t speak to her, her parents are struggling as her mum suffers from dementia and she’s been made redundant from a job she loved, honestly there are so many layers to this story it’s packed full to the brim and a real page turner.
It’s starts off at a steady pace, you get a feeling for the characters but as the pages turn the tension builds, I couldn’t put my finger on why I had this sense of feeling that something just wasn’t quite right, which made me want to turn the pages quicker but also made me hesitant because I was scared of what might come.
Stop at Nothing is a cracking psychological thriller, it has many twists and turns and many layers and it keeps the reader on their toes and the edge of their seats. It’s difficult to put into words how good this book is and why without giving too much away so I’ll leave it there and just say I’ll definitely be recommending Stop at Nothing and it’s a book you have to read.
