Happy Saturday! It’s time for a blog blitz to kick off the weekend 🙂

Thanks to Bloodhound Books and G.B. Williams for the ebook copy in exchange for my honest review.

LOCKED IN – G.B. Williams (out today!)

Book Description:

Ariadne Teddington is having a bad day. Then she finds herself staring down the barrel of a gun.

Stuck in a bank robbery turned hostage situation, Ariadne keeps her head down and her mouth shut; because if there is one thing criminals hate more than the police it’s prison guards.

Trapped with a child, a policeman, and a robber on the edge, Ariadne desperately searches for a way out for them.

Can they all escape unharmed?

And when everyone is locked in, will anyone get out alive?


My Thoughts: 4/5 stars!

Last year, I read and loved LOCKED UP which is book one of this trilogy (see that review and blog tour here). So I was very excited to see another installment was releasing. LOCKED IN was another gripping thriller and Adriadne is back!

I would highly recommend reading book one in the series before starting this one. There is a lot of information from LOCKED UP that’ll help out and you’ll get to know Adriadne better. I also don’t want to give away too much and spoil anything for those who have not read book one yet.

Instead of a prison we’re stuck in the middle of a bank robbery. The robbery quickly turns into a hostage situation and Adriadne is desperate to find a way for them to escape from the stressed robber. Will they all be able to leave the bank alive?

Overall, this one had the same fast-pacing to it that LOCKED UP did and I loved where Williams brought Adriadne this time. She’s a strong female lead and I’m excited to see where the concluding chapter in the trilogy brings her.

About the Author:

After being made redundant in 2012, GB started taking her life-long passion for writing more seriously and looking to sell her work. Specialising in complex, fast-paced crime novels. Her debut novel, Locked Up, was released in September 2017, Locked In follows in February 2018, and Locked Down in September 2018.

GB was shortlisted for the 2014 CWA Margery Allingham Short Story Competition with the story Last Shakes, now available in Last Cut Casebook. She is also a
feature writer and occasional comic book reviewer. Crime novels are her stock in trade, but she has had success with short stories in various genres
including steampunk, horror, erotica and general fiction.

With bills to pay, she’s back working as a systems architect by day, a freelance fiction editor and keen writer of an evening and weekend. GB really needs to
learn to sleep.

Originally from Kent, GB moved to South Wales as a supposed first step on a year around the world.  Then she met a guy.  Kept the guy, kissed the travel goodbye. Knowing that the best way to travel is by book anyway, she has always read,always written. GB now has two grown-up children, the world’s most imperious
cat, a house full of books and a hard drive full of manuscripts (though some will never be allowed out of a locked basement).
