My Rating: 3 Stars
Genre Crime | Mystery
BLOODLINE is an interesting read. It’s supposedly based on a true story but also injects a bit of horror and mystery (although I personally didn’t find this a horror novel). Did I like it? I did. Much more towards the end than the beginning. However, it DID feel like a rip-off of Rosemary’s Baby. I read Rosemary’s Baby a few years ago and enjoyed it immensely. One would think that if I loved that book then this would be a total winner for me. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case and there were way too many similarities for me to fully enjoy Lourey’s take on it. Not only that, seeing as this one is based on a true story I went ahead and did a little research about the kidnapped boy in the sailor costume. Had the author focused MORE on this disappearance for which the story was based on then I think I would have enjoyed it a lot more. For me, it feels like she veered way too far off of THAT case and went with something fictitious which didn’t work. Had these two stories been told in their own books I would have probably liked them. This mashup was just too weird.
Fans of crime/kidnapping fiction with a bit of cult like scenarios will more than likely enjoy Lourey’s latest release, Bloodline. While it wasn’t a favorite of mine I do appreciate the way the author writes the story in a historical perspective.
