review-2

I wanted to read this novel as soon as I saw the cover. Doesn’t it look great and doesn’t it sound menacing? You already expect the exact opposite when you read such an imperative.

This novel was so freaking develish! Do No Harm is a wonderful addictive story about someone’s obsession and the unwillingness of letting go. Obsession and revenge are the best ingredients in any book plot so I was very pleased this novel centers all around these two promising words :-).

It’s obvious that Maxwell, Lily’s ex-husband, can’t get over the fact that they’re not together anymore and that she’s marrying another man, not even a year after they seperated. When strange events start to occur everything points to Maxwell, but the question remains: is he the culprit?

Do No Harm concentrates on 5 characters – if you leave little 6-year old Denny, the sixth main character of the novel, aside – and each character is even more dubious than the next. Do any of them have anything to do with what is happening in Lily and Sebastian’s life? There’s nothing I can share about the plot of this novel, except that it includes a string of red herrings that you’ll walk into with open eyes.

Do No Harm was an exciting and addictive novel to read and L V Hay did a magnificent job with all the characters she created, I couldn’t rely on anyone being honest. An engrossing read that you won’t want to put down!

  1. When you have built a career telling other people how to write thriller screenplays, it must be nerve wracking to write your own piece of thriller fiction. She does seem to have successfully made the transition from telling other people what to do to doing it herself based on your reaction to this book

    • I think her job gave her a lot of inspiration and she made the right move to just write her own story. She definitely knows how to make everyone looking suspicious. I bet on the right person but I was never entirely sure so she did a great job keeping all options open :-). Thank you for stopping by!

  3. Ahhh, I completely agree with you when you say that obsession and revenge are the best ingredients! There’s nothing more intriguing than the cat and mouse dancing around the issue, haha… Great review!
