#BlogTour: A House Divided by Rachel McLean @rachelmcwrites @rararesources #AHouseDivided

Published on 24th September 2018. My thanks to the author/publisher for the review copy and Rachel of Rachel's Random Resources for inviting me on to the blog tour. 


Jennifer Sinclair is many things: loyal government minister, loving wife and devoted mother.

But when a terror attack threatens her family, her world is turned upside down. When the government she has served targets her Muslim husband and sons, her loyalties are tested. And when her family is about to be torn apart, she must take drastic action to protect them.

A House Divided is a tense and timely thriller about political extremism and divided loyalties, and their impact on one woman.

My Thoughts:

A House Divided is an intelligent political thriller and the first in a new trilogy. There is a realism about this novel that is somewhat unsettling and makes reading this book somewhat disturbing and horrifying but had me on the edge of the seat nevertheless.

From reading the blurb you would see some similarities to Bodyguard, the recent television drama featuring the Home Secretary. Shh don't tell me what happens as I haven't seen the final episode yet. If you are missing your political fix then you won't go wrong by reading this one though.

Jennifer Sinclair is a government minister and also MP for Birmingham, she is married to a Muslim man and they have two sons. A House Divided is set slightly in the future, and the exploration is how terrorism should be tackled. This causes great conflict between Jennifer's personal and professional lives. For all that this book is about I found it refreshing for a strong female character to be portrayed as being successful within politics. 

Taut, tense and thrilling. I can't wait for the next instalment as I am absolutely enthralled. 

Highly recommended. 


About the Author:
I'm Rachel McLean and I write thrillers and speculative fiction.

I'm told that the world wants upbeat, cheerful stories - well, I'm sorry but I can't help. My stories have an uncanny habit of predicting future events (and not the good ones). They're inspired by my work at the Environment Agency and the Labour Party and explore issues like climate change, Islamophobia, the refugee crisis and sexism in high places. All with a focus on how these impact individual people and families.
