I'm really excited to be a part of the Blog Tour for Visions by Helen J. Christmas. This is the second book in the Same Face, Different Place Series, but it can be read as a standalone. It's described as a psychological thriller mystery taking place in rural England. It takes place in the decade of the 1980's.

Synopsis: Visions is a psychological thriller set in rural England. The year is 1985. It’s been 12 years since Eleanor escaped London, discarding the fragments of her tragic past to discover a new life. She is hiding in a remote country village, a place where she truly believes she is safe.
Her neighbour, James Barton-Wells is desperate to save his historic country house from ruin but this has attracted the attention of a wealthy property developer from London whose seemingly altruistic offer to ‘bankroll the restoration’ masks a sinister game plan. Suspicious of his motives, Eleanor consults her friend, Charles Bailey. But Charlie has his own story, fearful that Perry Hampton is the man who undoubtedly destroyed his own life.
The characters are drawn together in a battle to save Westbourne House, oblivious to the menace that surrounds them. Threats, stalking and deception lie at the root of the Hamptons evil. Yet it is not until Eleanor comes face to face with them, she recognises a deadly enemy from the past.
Can Eleanor unravel the clues that conceal an evil crime committed in the 70s? This book will draw you into a world of suspense with shocking psychological twists you will never see coming…

My Reading Right Now! Thoughts: I'm currently reading this and really enjoying it so far. It is a sequel to a previous book, so I will admit to feeling a little bit lost when I first picked it up. I quickly fell into the groove of it though. I love a good psychological thriller, where I question everyone and everything. I also love creepy little towns where not all is right.
This book is set in the 1980s and some of the references go over my head. I was born at the end of the 80's so I was just a baby for all those things. But, for any 80's lovers, you'll probably enjoy this.
I'm liking this and I can't wait to read more of it. Part of me wishes I had read the first book first, just because I have a certain OCD when it comes to book series, but it does say that Visions can be read as a standalone. I can't wait to read more of this and see where it all goes. I will post a full review for it when I finish.

Meet the Author
Helen J. Christmas lives on the south coast with her husband. With a love of writing since childhood, she started her decade spanning thriller series 'Same Face Different Place' in 2011 and published her debut novel, 'Beginnings’ in 2012. Visions was the second book of the series and published in 2013; a suspense novel which explores British culture and social history in the 80s as well as the most evil traits people are capable of. The 16th Century cottage in which Helen lives with her husband (restored in 1991) provided endless inspiration for Visions, along with some very special places in Sussex that she loves. Writing is something she fits around her family and social life. Helen is a self employed web designer and works from home with her husband, Peter. They enjoy the company of a faithful border collie and a beautiful white cat, though Helen confesses to have dreamed up many of her storylines, whilst walking Barney around the nearby beach and park.
