BLOG TOUR: Time Will Tell - Eva Jordan

Eva Jordan's much-anticipated follow up to the bestselling `All The Colours In-Between'.

Writer, Lizzie Lemalf, and her loving but somewhat dysfunctional family are still grieving over the loss of a much-loved family member. Lizzie is doing her best to keep her family together but why does the recent death of a well-known celebrity have them all in a spin? The police suspect foul play; Lizzie and other family members suspect one another. 

Lizzie begins searching for answers only to find herself being dragged back to the past, to 1960's London to be exact, and to the former life of her father, that up until now she has never been privy to. Every family has its secrets but how can the past hold the key to a present day celebrity death? They say the past comes back to haunt you. Surely the truth will out? Maybe, but only time will tell...  

What did I think?

Eva Jordan’s books are so full of warmth and colour that you feel as if you’re catching up with an old friend who envelops you in a big hug on arrival.  I have absolutely adored, and frequently recommend, Eva’s books so I was delighted to be offered an early review copy of Time Will Tell that picks right up after the jaw dropping cliff-hanger ending of All The Colours In Between.

Our favourite blended family is back!  Time Will Tell is like two books in one as Lizzie’s story continues but we also get to read about her father, Salocin’s story and his extremely colourful past.  The story effortlessly switches between eras and I was as eager to learn of Salocin’s past as I was to find out what happened following the bombshell in the previous book.

I felt as if Eva Jordan’s very heart and soul is woven within the pages of this book as she tackles some emotional and difficult storylines with delicacy and poise.  As they overcame the hurdles of life, my heart went out to the Lamalf family and I laughed and cried along with them.   Nobody has ever extracted the essence of family as well as Eva Jordan and written the ups and downs of family life for us all to enjoy.  This book is an emotional triumph that went from my heart breaking with anguish one minute to smiling through my tears as the enviable strength of all of these characters overcame their own personal adversity. 

I really can’t rate them highly enough; you MUST pick up Eva Jordan’s books and invite the Lemalf family into your heart.  Eva Jordan’s sublime and honest writing has affected me so much that the Lemalf family have a permanent place in my heart and I love that I will just be able to turn the pages of a book when I inevitably find that I miss them.

Warm, witty, poignant and heartfelt Time Will Tell is the perfect finale to the Lemalf family story.

I chose to read an ARC and this is my honest and unbiased opinion.
