I’m thrilled to be kicking off the blog tour for Nothing Bad Happens Here and to introduce you to this debut novel by Nikki Crutchley. Nothing Bad Happens Here has received a Chill with a Book Readers’ Award and enthusiastic 5-star reviews on Amazon.
One reviewer described it as ‘a gripping as well as a chilling story with a plot that keeps its promises’. Another commented ‘there are a couple of “gotcha” moments that gave me a chill’ – and we all love “gotcha” moments in a crime thriller, don’t we? – concluding that ‘for an initial outing, it’s pretty darned good’.
If that’s whetted your appetite, you can find purchase links below. Be sure to check out future stops on the tour to read more reviews (see tour banner at the bottom of this post).
About the Book
She looked away from his face and took in the clear spring night, full of stars. Her last thoughts were of her mother. Would she finally care, when one day they found her body, and a policeman came knocking at her door?
The body of missing tourist Bethany Haliwell is found in the small Coromandel town of Castle Bay, where nothing bad ever happens. News crews and journalists from all over the country descend on the small seaside town as old secrets are dragged up and gossip is taken as gospel. Among them is Miller Hatcher, a journalist battling her own demons, who arrives intent on gaining a promotion by covering the grisly murder. Following an anonymous tip, Miller begins to unravel the mystery of the small town. And when another woman goes missing, Miller finds herself getting closer to the truth. But at what cost?
