My review of The Walls by Hollie Overton

What if you could get away with murder?

Single mom Kristy Tucker works as press agent for the Texas Department of Corrections – handling everything on death row, from inmate interviews to chronicling the last moments during an execution. Her job exposes Kristy to the worst of humanity and it’s one that’s beginning to take its toll.  So when Kristy meets Lance Dobson, her son’s martial arts instructor, she believed she finally found her happy ending. She was wrong.

Kristy soon discovers that Lance is a monster. Forced to endure his verbal and physical abuse, Kristy is serving her own life sentence . . . unless she’s willing to take matters into her hands. Perfectly poised to exploit the criminal justice system she knows so well, Kristy sets out to get rid of Lance – permanently. 

THE WALLS explores domestic violence, the morality of murder and how far one woman will go to protect her family.

This is the second book that I have read by this author and I have to say that I loved it.  It has a really tough central subject and the execution of the story is told very well, I read it in a day and just needed to see what was around the corner, the twists and how the plot played out.  The pace was great and the characters really grew on me and took me through so many emotions.  I really wanted to see that Kristy got the ending that she deserved and I wasn’t disappointed.  5 stars from me and looking forward to the next book from Hollie.
