REVIEW: Dead Hope by Nicky Wells

Dead Hope by Nicky Wells
Genre: Thriller/Romantic Suspense
Release Date: 23 February 2017

Cat Hope doesn’t want to go to prison. She needs a job, and she needs it fast: judge’s orders. Caught in a drugs raid while trying to dull the pain of her parents’ deathaversary, Cat is serving a ‘rehab’ sentence under a new identity in the deepest depths of rural nowhere.
Kay Mahon, office worker by day and hacker by night, is on the run from a past life that he’d rather not remember.
When their paths cross, they discover that the night that derailed Cat’s future nineteen long years ago also changed the path of Kay’s life. Confused and intrigued, they begin to investigate the truth behind the deaths of the successful rock star couple Jackie and Adam Hope. Little do they know that their quest is putting Cat in grave danger.
After Cat goes missing, Kay finally puts the pieces together. But how is he going to find Cat and her abductor in a place as big as London before it is too late?

Dead Hope is one of those books that will have you sitting on the edge of your seat desperate to know what's going to happen. I know I was.
I warmed to the main character, Cat Hope, almost immediately. Even though she was something of a spoilt brat to start with, this is the story of how she finds her true self. I guess you could almost call it a coming-of-age tale (even though Cat is in her late twenties). 
Kay, mister cool in every sense of the word, is one of those characters you'll swoon over. Even though he clearly has issues of his own, you'll find yourself desperately wanting everything to work out for him as well. I loved how the two interact throughout - they bounce off one another perfectly. The story concluded brilliantly, tying up all those loose ends I was really curious about.
Not only is Dead Hope really well written, it's the kind of story that'll leave you wanting to read more of Nicky Wells' books. I'm intrigued to see what else she has in store!
