Falling Suns - J.A Corrigan


                                         ***Blog Tour***

Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for the fabulous Falling Suns.

Falling Suns is the debut novel by J.A. Corrigan and one that I couldn't wait to read.

This is the story of a missing child and a mother who will stop at nothing to get her revenge.

Rachel and Liam's marriage is already under pressure and when their young son Joe goes missing things only get worse. Being a former detective, Rachel has worked on missing child cases before so she knows that when it comes to finding Joe time is of the essence and the more time that passes, the less chance there is of finding him safe and well. Her worst fears are soon confirmed, Joe is found dead not far from home and the perpetrator is Rachel's cousin, Michael Hemmings.

Struggling to find her way through her grief and life hard to cope with without her beloved Joe, Rachel goes back to work and starts to plot her revenge.

Falling Suns is an extremely clever and well thought out thriller that took me to some very dark places that some readers might not feel comfortable in but none of it is done for pure shock value as sadly in the world we live in today these things happen and these types of people are real. I take my hat of to Ms Corrigan for having the courage to tackle these issues with such a delicate but assured manner in her first novel. Rachel's character is that of a strong, confident woman who knows exactly what she wants to do and doesn't shy away from doing everything in her power to get her desired result and that makes her an exciting character to read. This was a compelling read and the author has clearly done a lot of research to ensure that the story is authentic and in doing so she has produced a stunning debut novel. I sincerely hope that there will be another novel along from this author very soon!

With kind thanks to author J.A. Corrigan for the review copy.


  1. Great review! I'm also lucky enough to have read this book, and totally agree both that it takes courage to address some of the difficult issues involved, and that the way the author tackles them is 'delicate but assured'. Falling Suns is a really good read - gripping but also thought-provoking.

  2. Thank you for your comment Rosy. It certainly is thought-provoking and it makes you wonder just how well you know your own family.
