The Ex Boyfriend by Rona Halsall / #Review #BooksOnTour @bookouture @RonaHalsallAuth



He promised to love her until her dying day…

When Becca’s first love shows up on her social media feed, she can’t help but smile fondly. Once upon a time Connor was the love of her life, and though it was over ten years ago, he’s always held a place in her heart.

Then he sends her a message. He sounds happy – still kind and funny, still living across the world in Australia. But he wants to know everything about her life now. How can Becca tell him the truth? About her workaholic husband, her stressful job, and the challenges of caring for her elderly father and her longed-for, adorable but exhausting three-year-old daughter Mia?

Becca hesitates, knowing she shouldn’t even reply. But Connor lives on the other side of the world. Just how dangerous can becoming friends again be?

It feels harmless. Until Mia gets sick – in a way that no one can explain. And it starts to become clear – someone will do absolutely anything to make sure Becca never escapes her past…




Another book that should come with a warning. Please, make sure you have plenty of time once you start reading it, because once you have read the prologue you will want to shut the world out and get immersed in this wonderful story.

Every child is ill once in a while and of course it breaks your heart, but what’s even worse is that nobody seems to believe you when you tell them there is more going on. When finally you are being heard, that’s when the real nightmare begins…

I really did not know who was genuine here. I distrusted everyone and that is what makes a book such a good read. My brain still hurts from trying to make all the pieces of the puzzle fit. I did figure it out about 2 minutes before Becca did and that was around chapter 39 (of 40 LOL). 

I loved, loved, loved it! 5 stars.

Thank you, Rona Halsall and Bookouture

Rona lives on the Isle of Man with her husband, two dogs and three guinea pigs. She has been a bookworm since she was a child and now she’s actually creating stories of her own, which still feels like a dream come true. 

She is an outdoorsy person and loves stomping up a mountain, walking the coastal paths and exploring the wonderful beaches on the Island while she’s plotting how to kill off her next victim. She also makes sure she deletes her Google history on a regular basis, because… well, you can’t be too careful when you spend your life researching new and ingenious ways for people to die.
