I have all her books and this one is so different from all the Fens books. It is good to have a change of pace and a change of story lines. I expect Joy Ellis feels the same.
Who do you turn to when life goes wrong?
Stella’s life has changed forever. Her only support is her amazing grandmother, Beth. But Beth also faces the biggest challenge of her life.
Stella North, a rising star in the police, has her life torn apart by a gunman’s bullets. All her life she has faced danger, but these injuries mean she must give up the job she loves. Her grandmother Beth is her rock. And Beth is no ordinary woman. At seventy, she runs marathons and has an exciting past that Stella knows very little about.
Will Stella find the strength to overcome the challenges of her new life, and will her grandmother at last resolve the deep emotional turmoil of her past?
A Fantastic read with brilliant characters. I loved Stella and her grandmother. Wow. What her grandmother did for the war. I was shocked. This book is fall of surprises. A lovely read. 5*. Netgalley and Joffe books.
There were many characters - all rich, relatable and playing their part in the plot/subplot. Joy's excellent writing allowed insight into their motives and feelings. MC, Stella North's life changed dramatically after she was shot while on duty and her once promising career, was over. Once a caring and strong person, Stella now had to face many foreign challenges: mood swings, loss, anger, memory failure, self-esteem issues etc.
Beth, Stella's amazing grandmother was her stalwart. She had faced her own battles and troubles in her long life and now needed to dig deep to find ways to help or enlist support to aid Stella in building her confidence and resilience and finding a new purpose (even a little romance).
The strong, emotional and gripping plot cleverly wove both women's lives (past and present) throughout the narrative. Guide Star wasn't a crime/thriller, but it was still a page-turner with plenty of delicious twists and a compelling conclusion. The setting (as in all Joy's books) featured strongly with great descriptions forming vivid imagery.
(The significance of title was meaningful, btw.)
