Happy HUMP day, peeps! Today my guest reviewer Claire Knight is hosting Alex Kane’s debut psychological thriller Chasing the Traveller blog tour! I LOVED this book and kicked off the tour on publication day – you can read my full review HERE. First though, before we get to Claire’s awesome review, here is a bit about Alex and this book!
About The Author

Her newest novel, set to be released late 2017 is set in several towns and villages in and around Glasgow, most of which she is familiar with. She loves to read whenever she can and her favourite genre is psychological thriller and crime. She loves something that will get under her skin and make her think about the story long after she has finished it. Inspirations are BA Paris, Lisa Hall and Paula Hawkins.

About the Book
‘I’ve fled from my husband and the only life I’ve ever known. I’m terrified that if he finds me, I’ll never find myself.’
Kat is trapped in a world she has never felt like she belonged. As a traveller, she has always felt lost, especially since the death of her parents in a fire when she was fourteen years old. The Denton family take Kat on as their own and she falls in love with teenage tearaway, Jimmy Denton. His charm soon wears off and Kat finds herself married to a controlling and violent thug.
Sixteen years later, Kat decides enough is enough and finds herself plotting her escape from a lifetime of abuse.
Stripped of her personality, Kat has no idea how to start again. An unlikely source otherwise known as Ellie Denton, shows Kat that she is not alone in her fears and plots to escape with her, where they will face new challenges together.
Kat and Ellie Denton begin their venture into the world of normality, where they will meet new people and build new lives. But Kat still feels like she has a lot of digging to do about her parents past and when she seeks the location of an address on the back of a family photograph, Kat will begin to discover her family’s past and a revelation that will lead Kat back to the traveller site she had been so desperate to escape from.
Will she find the answers she is looking for, or will she fall prey to the violent Jimmy Denton once more?
Claire’s Rating: 4/5
