BLOG TOUR: The Curfew - T.M. Logan

I should have known something was wrong. I should have sensed it. Felt it in the air, like the build-up of pressure before a thunderstorm, that heavy, loaded calm.

The curfew
Andy and Laura are good parents. They tell their son Connor that he can go out with friends to celebrate completing his exams, but he must be home by midnight.

The lie
When Connor misses his curfew, it sets off a series of events that will change the lives of five families forever.

The truth?
Because five teenagers went into the woods that night, but only four came out. And telling the truth might mean losing everything...


What did I think?

I always get excited when I see a new T.M. Logan book being published as all his novels are completely compelling and The Curfew is no exception.  Clear your schedule when you pick this one up as you won't be able to put it down!

Like many parents of teenagers, Andy Boyd can't completely fall asleep until he knows that his 16 year old son, Connor, is home safe.  Connor's curfew is midnight so he must be home when Andy wakes up at 3am, but Andy can't relax until he looks into Connor's room and thinks he sees him tucked up in bed.  The following day becomes every parent's worst nightmare when one of Connor's school friends goes missing but Connor was home by midnight...wasn't he?

Ooooh you can't help but read this book wondering what you would do in the same situation.  Andy and Laura Boyd have every faith in their son but they don't actually know where he was at midnight so it's either stupid or incredibly trusting to tell the police that Connor was at home.  Connor is clearly hiding something and I couldn't read fast enough to find out what.

Although the story centres around Connor, it is his 12 year old sister, Harriet, who turned out to be my favourite character.  She's like a cross between Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory and Chloe from 24; incredibly intelligent and a tech wizard who naturally doesn't fit in with the normal kids at school.  Who wants to be normal anyway?  The character development is stunning and they're described so vividly that they virtually pop out of the page.

T.M. Logan has done it again!  The Curfew is a gripping, compulsive and nail-biting thriller that is as impossible to predict as it is to put down.  I certainly missed my reading curfew when reading just one more chapter turned into five more chapters.  Don't miss this one!

I received an ARC to read and review for the blog tour; this is my honest and unbiased opinion.
