Release date: July 11th, 2019

⭐⭐⭐⭐


I received a complimentary copy of The Seventh Life of Aline Lloyd
by Robert Davies from NetGalley and BHC Press in order to read and give an honest review.

… In my opinion, it’s a well-written character-driven mystery which slowly unravels…

Publisher’s Description

Although not really what I expected I still enjoyed The Seventh Life of Aline Lloyd. Slow-paced, this is more of a memoir told from Evan’s point of view, as we follow his life after the death of his brother and inheriting his estate in Wales.  In my opinion, it’s a well-written character-driven mystery which slowly unravels, first with Evan trying to get to the bottom of his brother Damon’s unusual and concerning behaviour before his death. Then Evan’s obsession of uncovering the truth of who Aline Lloyd really is and what secrets lie behind her intense personality seems to take centre stage.  Although it has a touch of the paranormal, basically a reincarnation story, to me it reads more like a romantic mystery. It does pick up when an elite agency chases after Aline but sadly the action is short lived.

All in all, not a bad book but I think the cover although well done, is the most misleading thing for readers. It’s dark and lends an impression of a darker more paranormal infused story.  I guess this is a good example of when a cover can be misleading and garner a negative impression on an otherwise decent story.
