Synopsis: Dominique Monaghan just wanted to get even with her two-timing, married boyfriend, a washed-up boxer stuck in a toxic marriage to a dangerously spoiled socialite. However, an elaborate blackmail scheme soon lands her in the middle of an unexpected kidnapping... and attempted murder. But who is actually out to kill whom?
Desmond Edgars, Dominique’s big brother, has looked out for his wayward sister ever since their mother was convicted of murdering many years ago, so when he receives a frantic phone call from Dominique in the middle of the night, he drops everything to rush to the rescue. But to find out what has really happened to his sister, the stoic ex-military man must navigate a tangled web of murder and deception, involving a family fortune, a couple of shifty lawyers, and a missing child, while wrestling with his own bloody secrets...
Hilary Davidson's Blood Always Tells is a twisted tale of love, crime, and family gone wrong, by the multiple award–winning author of The Damage Done and Evil in All Its Disguises.
Review: BLOOD ALWAYS TELLS is a twisted tale of revenge, murder, family, and loyalty. Dominique Monaghan is a beautiful woman who fell for the wrong married man. When she found out he was also cheating on her, she comes up with a plan to blackmail him. Yet, it backfires in a big way and she finds herself kidnapped along with her cheating beau. Desmond Edgars is Dominique’s brother and protector. Always looking out for her since their mother was convicted for Dominique’s father’s murder; he doesn’t hesitate to respond to Dominique’s strange cry for help. What he finds leads him untangle a complex web of deceit spun by all the players. BLOOD ALWAYS TELLS is a compelling and strange tale. The characters and their intricate connections draw you into the plot quickly and will hold you there until the ride is over. This is the first book I’ve read by Hilary Davidson, but I know it won’t be the last. The story is told through the eyes of three different characters, but all of the secondary characters are just as detailed and rich as the main characters. I don’t want to give too much away – BLOOD ALWAYS TELLS is a great book!
