Dominique Monaghan just wanted to get even with her two-timing, married boyfriend, a washed-up boxer stuck in a toxic marriage to a dangerously spoiled socialite. However, an elaborate blackmail scheme soon lands her in the middle of an unexpected kidnapping... and attempted murder. But who is actually out to kill whom?

Desmond Edgars, Dominique’s big brother, has looked out for his wayward sister ever since their mother was convicted of murdering many years ago, so when he receives a frantic phone call from Dominique in the middle of the night, he drops everything to rush to the rescue. But to find out what has really happened to his sister, the stoic ex-military man must navigate a tangled web of murder and deception, involving a family fortune, a couple of shifty lawyers, and a missing child, while wrestling with his own bloody secrets...

Hilary Davidson's Blood Always Tells is a twisted tale of love, crime, and family gone wrong, by the multiple award–winning author of The Damage Done and Evil in All Its Disguises.

My thoughts: This is the first book I've read by Hilary Davidson and it was quite the twisted tale of murder and revenge! It kept me engaged and hooked from start to finish and I really enjoyed it.

This book really kept me on my toes as to what was going was completely unpredictable and full of action. Told from three points of views, I really found it compelling.  It was almost as if the story was told in three parts. I will say, though, I was a bit thrown off at first when the last section started. But, once it got going, I understood the significance of it. 

This is a multi-layered, dark, twisted story. It pulls you in, is full of complex characters, secrets, and murder. I really liked this book and will definitely be looking into what else this author has written!

Audio thoughts: I've listened to Kirsten Potter narrate before, so I was excited to see she was narrating this audio book. I enjoy listening to her and thought she did a great job with this audio book. She gave each character their own unique voice and her pacing and intonation was good.
