Blog Tour | Fifty Fifty – Steve Cavanagh

Well, hello there sweet cheeks! Today I bring you one of the most exciting blog tours that I have been involved with since the beginning of Bookskatlikes. It really should be no secret how much I love Steve Cavanagh, particularly the Eddie Flynn series. I was an instant fan as soon as I picked up Th1rt3en and have now worked my way through all the books in the series, except one.

As I’ve mentioned once or twice before, I absolutely love Cavanagh’s style. I tend to get through his books in record time and I’d like to think that I am familiar enough with his writing. It’s enjoyable and thrilling to say the least. His books keep my attention from the first to the last page and I am always left wanting more.

But before we talk about Fifty Fifty, lets catch up! How are you? What have you been up to recently? Are you still shielding, or have you been venturing out into the world despite Covid? What have you been reading? Let me know in the comments below!

I flew out to  Estonia to see my family in early August. I’ve been spending some much needed quality time with them and my friends for about a month now and I still have about three weeks of actual holiday time left. It’s been so good!

I’m so grateful for all the memories and sunsets I’ve been able to share with them. Especially in the circumstances we have found ourselves living in, in the absolute abomination of what is 2020. Whilst the numbers of those confirmed ill are rising sharply around the world, Estonia seems to be holding a steady low number so far (touch wood!!). My thoughts are with everyone affected and I truly hope we find a way to get through this rough time together very soon!

Fifty Fifty by Steve Cavanagh

4 out of 5

Pub Date 3 September 2020, by Orion Books

Available to order now from Amazon, Waterstones and Bookdepository.

Blurb: Two sisters on trial for murder. They accuse each other. Who do YOU believe?

‘911 what’s your emergency?’

‘My dad’s dead. My sister Sofia killed him. She’s still in the house. Please send help.’

‘My dad’s dead. My sister Alexandra killed him. She’s still in the house. Please send help.’

One of them is a liar and a killer. But which one?

My thoughts: Eddie Flynn is back in book #5 and as usual gets involved with a high profile case that is full of twists and turns. Poor Eddie gets caught up in an absolute mess again. At times I really just wanted to reach out to him and give him a massive hug..

In Fifty Fifty we get to meet other familiar individuals from the previous books. I would therefore suggest to read the books in order to have a better feel for the characters and their back stories. (Also because the books are great and beg to be read!)

I did feel like Eddie wasn’t on his top form in this book, but his story will give you a reason for why that is, too.

Nevertheless, my Eddie, come rain or shine, I will forever follow your journey. I hope Cavanagh never stops writing about you.

Below are my reviews for the rest of the series:

The Defence  –

The Plea –

The Liar – One I haven’t yet read, but will before the end of this year!

Th1rt3en –

Fifty Fifty – One I told you about today!

*Cavanagh has also written Twisted, which is a standalone – CLICK HERE if you would like to know more about it and what my thoughts on it were.

Thank you all so much for checking out my blog and stopping by the blog tour. Feel free to wonder around my website! There are a few interesting books living here that I’d warmly recommend!
