[Book Review] Blood Always Tells by Hilary Davidson

Blood Always TellsBlood Always Tells
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.

Blood Always Tells was an incredible story about what means to lose a family and stick to them even after they are gone. It had everything. Amazing plot, great characters, and non stop action with twists that noone could have predicted. 

Story starts off when Dominique puts together a plan to set up her ex-boyfriend Gary to tell her the truth about his wife. Spending a weekend together should give her enough time to put her plan in action but when a guy in the mask kidnaps them and takes them to the middle of nowhere, Dominique has to find a way out. 

Desmond gets a phone call from his sister Dominique that she's in trouble. Ever since he turned his life around, he would do anything for his sister to ensure that she is safe and sound. But finding out the murderer can get him into a lot of trouble with the law and the bad guys and the only way to decide who is the real killer is to follow the leads.


You know you read a good mystery book when you almost cry when it ends. It's so hard to find a good one too because you usually know who did it and don't even want to continue with the story. But Hilary Davidson definitely has an amazing talent for keeping the reader in the dark. I can't believe these twists actually got me, which is hard to do, and I enjoyed every single page. 

Definitely recommend to anyone who's been looking for a good mystery book or looking to change up the genres!
