Book Review: Bully Boy Blue

Title: Bully Boy Blue

Author: John Nicoll





Sometimes victims fight back …

Every aspect of Kathy’s life is dominated by her abusive bully boy husband. Now she’s pregnant and in fear for her life. Can she ever escape him?

An electrifying page-turner of a psychological thriller packed with suspense.

The novella contains material that some readers may find distressing from the start.

It is dedicated to survivors anywhere.



My review

4/5 Stars

A psychological novella that gives the reader a sickeningly realistic look into the life of domestic abuse victims. Kathy lives her life in fear, dominated completely by the man who is supposed to love and protect her. After suffering a brutal miscarriage, she is horrified at the thought of getting pregnant once again. With the time ticking, she must find a way to escape.

The characters were all very vividly written, the main antagonist especially. The only problem I had with this book was the phone call between Kathy and her mother. If their relationship really was detrimental, why would she call to confide her secret in her knowing she wouldn’t be able to fully trust her mother to keep it? I took off one star for this detail but the rest of the story is still pretty good.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
