Deep Blue Eternity, Natasha Boyd

 
Deep Blue Eternity, Natasha Boyd
Genre:  Romance
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
I adored Natasha’s Eversea duo – recently re read them both, wonderful books. So when I saw she had a new book out I had to request. What a terrific read it proved, very different to Eversea but once again a solid five star read. Its interesting how an author can write such different books around the theme of romance. Eversea was very upbeat even though it has some really sad moments, and this one is much darker and more mysterious, and yet both contain a beautiful tender romance.
It explores some dark themes, and Natasha gives some excellent links at the back of the book for those who want to know more or have been affected by them.  From the very start the mystery builds, who is Liv? Why is she one the run, who from,  and what happened six years ago with her sister? Then there’s Tom. What’s he really doing in the cottage and what’s he hiding. What’s in the box Liv’s sister gave her?Then throw in the mysterious happenings, are they really due to a boo hag, a sort of ghost, as one of Liv’s co workers thinks, or is someone out to cause trouble for Liv.
It’s peopled with a wonderful cast, each with their own backstory, we see the mystery slowly unfold, and Liv and Tom get closer and closer until something happens that blows everything apart. From then on things quickly build to a head, with Liv in serious danger . The story is perfect, revealing more in tiny increments and had me desperate to know what was coming next. I loved the characters and the small island feel, and felt as if I was there with them. The romance – how cleverly that crept up, and how tender it was and then wham – that revelation came, I was devastated. Just when I thought poor Liv, after everything she’d been through was going to get some happiness it all disappears. Though the main theme is quite dark its very sensitively handled, and it would be great to think things like this don’t happen. Sadly they do – and far too often. We need to talk about them, drag them into the open instead of covering them up, glossing over them, making excuses. I feel so much for anyone who’s been hurt like Liv, she’s fictional, but its a real problem happening to real people every day.
Stars: Five, an amazing, emotional read.
