Synopsis

Synopsis

Henry - My past is gruesome and unforgettable no matter how hard I try to let go. Writing is my escape. My only therapy. When I met my wife, had children, and my career sky-rocketed, I thought I’d never revisit those dark days again. So, the moment Blue Hill, Maine beckons for me, I go willingly in an effort to write the next big story. But when a ghost from my past shows up, all of my carefully rebuilt walls come crumbling down hard and fast. My only way of defense is ripped from my grasp as this distraction bounces into my life. Will I be able to sift through what’s fiction to find reality?

Eli - I’m a serial killer. A victim of narcissism and the need to satisfy my own urges. I have a thirst to snuff out the lives of those that remind me of her—the woman that ruined me—and I take great pleasure in quenching that thirst. I have no rules. No parameters. I do as I please. New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Henry McElroy, is my god. His sick, twisted mind constructs the world to which I rule. I would be nothing without him—my dark creator.

*** What happens when Henry McElroy’s story begins to take a realistic form the moment he sets foot in the sleepy, seaside town in Maine? As soon as he begins sharing excerpts of his book with his fans on social media, including an obsessive one he meets in Blue Hill, bodies begin to stack up in similar fashion to that of which he writes about. Will the blame be placed on the town’s newest and most twisted visitor? Or will Henry be able to prove his innocence and clear his name before it’s too late?

My Review

“She’s a beautiful song that I can’t help but get stuck in my head.”

This is the debut novel for Elizabeth Gray.  However, I have read numerous books under this author’s original pen name, K. Webster, and although this story has a different taste than what she would typically write in the contemporary romance genre, the words of Elizabeth Gray blew me away.

“I hitchhiked with Scarface.”

I am a reader who loves a good hook. The prologue jolted and jostled me, and also gave me no choice but to read as fast as I could.   At the writing of this review, I have so much to say about Blue Hill Blood that is bottled up inside of me, that if I take the lid off too far, it would likely explode details of green, blue and red everywhere. So, I will give you just the basics of this story that created one unbelievable hangover.

“Her playful tone soothes the parts of my suffering soul that ache daily.”

Henry is a very unique and different kind of character.  There is the Henry on the outside, the one who puts on the face that everyone wants to see, and there is Hank on the inside that has never gotten over his past.  This becomes more evident as the story progresses.  Leesa, his wife, is a woman of pure devotion, through thick and thin. More characters are introduced, settings are established, and what lies ahead of us is a pure work of art, possibly jagged and distorted art, but art nonetheless.

“It will always be you.  Always has, always will, Henry.”

Blue Hill Blood twisted me up in all kinds of ways.  It was gritty and raw, dark and thrilling.  The concept of telling stories within stories created so much more depth; I felt like I was meticulously peeling back layer after layer. Learning of Henry’s past and present and the way in which all the characters intertwined to make and maintain his persona made me feel great depths of sorrow, pain, alarm, and surprise.   Then, at last, delving into the future, Author Elizabeth Gray presented the unimaginable.  Blue Hill Blood was not a book that would typically peek my interest.  No normal romance was found here.  But, without a doubt, I will be reading more from this author.

“It is in this moment that I know I was destined to come to Blue Hill.”
