Is Zenna a muse, a sleep-deprived apparition, or something much more sinister?
Suffering long-term amnesia, artist Jo Mckye is ready to start a fresh, new project after the success of her debut exhibition. But the fictional subject of the collection, Zenna, won’t let go so easily. Infiltrating Jo’s dreams—and increasingly, her waking hours—Zenna is fast becoming a dangerous obsession.
Jo is confident the answers lie at her childhood home, an idyllic Cornish village on the south-east coast; she just doesn’t know why. Only when she walks into the sea and almost drowns does the past start to unravel.
Haunting and melodic, fans of Daphne du Maurier and Daisy Johnson will adore this.
So in August, we went on an adventure, so did we find out if Zenna was just a muse for Jo, or something more sinister?
The tour kicked off today – 31st August

Review by twilight_reader (IG), “When I seen this cover I wasn’t sure if this was going to be a horror, a thriller or psychological. Instantly because of this I knew whatever it would turn out to be I’d absolutely not be able to put it down. I was so right.“

Review by Donna’s Interviews, Reviews and Giveaways (FB), “This is a cleverly written story in which the tension is very slowly built. Clues are drip fed throughout and you get an idea of what might have happened, but will still be shocked by the final reveal“
Review at Tomes and Tales, “What makes Small Forgotten Moments striking is Jo’s inability to remember what she might already know. This puts the reader into the shoes of the unreliable narrator, rendering us as confused as Jo is about truth, lies, dreams, nightmares, reality and delusions.“

Review by Rajivs Reviews, “Moreover, the author does a remarkable job of maintaining the suspense. The book does not have those ‘jump scares’ that suddenly shocks you, but it is more of a psychological uneasiness that creeps on you.“

Until the next adventure xxx
