Never Alone by Linn B. Halton - Book Review & Giveaway

Book review

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Anniek

A lot of people envy Holly. They think she's living the perfect life. She has a gorgeous boyfriend, Will, who has a successful IT-company and Holly herself is great at her job as a realtor. She is also beautiful and slim without having to work out at the gym. Holly has always known that she has inherited a psychic sensitivity from her father. They never talk about it, but they have both accepted the fact that they sometimes know or feel more than others. When Holly's brother takes on a house that needs to be sold, Holly instantly feels the negativity. She doesn't want to go into the house and pays for it severely when she has no choice but to enter eventually.

Holly can't deny her abilities any longer and she's in desperate need of guidance. Will is supportive, but he doesn't fully understand Holly. Holly needs to know more about what is happening and how to deal with the changes she is going through as a person. Will's business has taken a big jump forward almost overnight. This makes Will and Holly look for houses in Los Angeles and will give them the space to live a luxurious and glamorous life. Are they able to connect with each other again or will the changes both of them are going through come between them?

Holly is still young and I could easily relate to her fear for some of the things that were happening. She is extremely loyal to her boyfriend Will. Holly supports him all the way and sometimes forgets herself in the process. I liked to read about her own journey, which also made her question her current life. A lot of women would have jumped at the opportunity to live the luxury life of a trophy wife, but Holly values her own needs as well and this made me like her even more.

Linn B. Halton has a way of drawing you into her stories from the very beginning. The events that caused Holly to follow her destiny really freaked me out. I was even a bit scared to read Never Alone after dark. The fact that some people have psychic abilities that allow them to help and guide people through life has always fascinated me. I love reading books about this topic. Never Alone is a story that stayed with me a long time after I finished reading it. It made me ask myself the following  questions - What if you're never truly alone? What if someone is there to help you live your life to the fullest? - I love it when a book can get my brain working like this. Linn B. Halton's stories positively affect me. She is one of my favorite authors and I can't wait to start reading another one of her stories.

Quote from Never Alone

“It’s a gift to be shown something that allows you to make a difference and alter the outcome of someone else’s life. However, the weight of the responsibility that goes along with that is huge and what about the ethics? The thing I have to ask myself is how did my actions change the future?”

Advice

If you like to read stories about paranormal abilities with many twists and turns and an unexpected ending Never Alone would really interest you.

  3. Woke up to your Tweet - thank you so much for taking the time to read and review Never Alone, Annie, and I'm thrilled you enjoyed it. Many of the psychic moments in the book are based on my own experiences. In fact, that was where the idea for this story began. And when I feel something unpleasant I always turn and run! But so many things I experience are truly wonderful and never fail to surprise me. You must surely have read all of my books by now ha! Ha! xx

    1. I don't think I have a favourite as such, but I suppose a writer's first book will always have an extra special place in their heart. I do miss characters after I write 'the end' and it is a bittersweet moment every single time, Julia!
