I am delighted that’s it’s Love Books Groups, stop on the blog tour for Health of Strangers by Lesley Kelly.

I’ve had the pleasure to meet Lesley on a few occasions and she’s incredibly engaging and so kind.  This year at Noir@TheBar Edinburgh #2 I heard Lesley read from her first novel, A Fine House In Trinity and her reading was filled with such passion and character. It definitely resonated and stayed with me, at an Authors lunch I was surprised to learn that Lesley had been a stand up comedian. Which totally explained her memorable performance at the event.

My Thoughts

I am always intrigued by books set in my home city of Edinburgh, and even more so by the  altered world that The Health Of Strangers is set. It’s a post viral Edinburgh and now The Health Enforcement Team, have to keep on their toes to keep it safe!

It may sound a little far fetched, but you would be wrong. I could totally relate to the situation with all bugs and virus’s that have plagued the world over recent years, something could happen anywhere. So getting myself into the mindset of what had happened was easy.

The book is well paced and you learn new things with each chapter. Get to know Mona and Bernard as they work had to keep the City safe. Go with them on a dark and mysteries journey as they try to find the two missing students

I recommend the book, it’s different in a great way, Lesley Kelly has a knack of leaving you wanting more.  Which is great as the next book in series is Songs By Dead Girls and it will be coming in 2018

Back Of The Book

Nobody likes the North Edinburgh Health Enforcement Team, least of all the people who work for it. An uneasy mix of seconded Police and health service staff, Mona, Bernard and their colleagues stem the spread of the Virus, a mutant strain of influenza, by tracking down people who have missed their monthly health check. Now two young female students are missing, raising question after question for the HET. Why were they drinking in a biker’s bar? Who are the mysterious Children of Camus cult? And why is the German government interfering in the investigation? Mona and Bernard need to fight their way through lies and intrigue, and find the missing girls – before anyone else does.51tp8YZ5-2L._SX325_BO1,204,203,200_
