It’s a total frustration not to be able to read every book that I’m offered (or indeed that I buy) and life is so busy at the moment that blogging is going to have to take a back seat for a while. However, even when I can’t always read a book I sometimes can’t resist finding out more about it. Such is the case with AJ Campbell’s latest and I’m delighted she agreed to stay in with me to tell me more:
Staying in with AJ Campbell
Welcome to Linda’s Book Bag AJ. Thank you for agreeing to stay in with me.
Thank you for having me . It’s a pleasure to be here!
Tell me, which of your books have you brought along to share this evening and why have you chosen it?
It’s a pleasure to be here! This evening, I’ve chosen my new release The Wrong Key, because once you’ve picked it up, you won’t want to put it down – so early reviews are telling me!
That sounds brilliant. What can we expect from an evening in with The Wrong Key?
True to my author tagline, I can sure promise you an evening of twists, turns & torment. The Wrong Key is a psychological suspense thriller about Steph Knight, a woman scorned, who goes to New York on a temporary work assignment with her teenage daughter, Ellie. Following her recent divorce, Steph needs a change of scene. Once in New York, she falls in love with Edward, a corporate lawyer… or so he says he is. Life is looking up. But then Ellie gets kidnapped… how far would you go to save your daughter?
Oo. I love the sound of The Wrong Key. How is it being received so far?
Here are a few one-liners from early reviews:
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ‘Holy fudge, what a brilliant story this was!’
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ‘A brilliant thriller leaving you feeling a kaleidoscope of emotions!’
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ‘A twisted, suspenseful, edge-of-your-seat thriller!’
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ‘The cleverly intricate plot made me constantly second guess!’
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ‘The Wrong Key is a heart-pounding wild ride! You don’t know who to trust, where to turn or how it’s going to end.’
I bet you’re thrilled with those responses AJ!
What else have you brought along and why have you brought it?
A cool, crisp bottle of bottle of Sauvignon Blanc, a large bag of ready salted crisps, and an even larger bar of Cadbury Dairy Fruit & Nut… what more could one need for a perfect night in?
I’ll skip the wine. It makes me ill. Of course, that means I’ll need more of the crisps and chocolate to make up for it!
I’ve also bought along my saxophone. Steph’s daughter, Ellie, is a gifted musician, and she too plays the saxophone. I will treat you some tunes from Ellie’s playlist, which features in the book. Click here to listen.
I love a bit of saxophone. Thanks so much for staying in with me to chat about The Wrong Key AJ. It sounds a cracking read and I wish you continued success with it. Let me give readers a few more details:
The Wrong Key
When her US counterpart is involved in a serious car accident, London-based Steph Knight is sent to New York to provide cover at the company she works for.
After her recent traumatic divorce, it’s the perfect opportunity for a fresh start and for Steph to spend some time with her teenage daughter, Ellie, a gifted musician, before she leaves for university.
In New York, Steph meets corporate lawyer Edward, and Ellie meets bartender Jack. Both women become embroiled in whirlwind romances that intensify over a hot and sultry New York summer. But as Steph begins to uncover a web of corruption within her company that seemingly reaches right to the top, she feels increasingly threatened, with no idea who she can trust. Not even the men they’ve fallen for are beyond suspicion.
And just when it appears things can’t get any worse, Ellie disappears.
When Steph receives an ominous text message and a video, she knows her daughter has been kidnapped. To secure her safe return, Steph must stop her investigation.
The clock is ticking. Ellie’s life is in danger.
Alone, terrified and far from home, Steph has to draw on all her inner strength and investigative skills to find Ellie before it’s too late.
Because a mother’s love knows no bounds, Steph is going to save her daughter, even if it kills her…
