Amazon UK, 

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.


My interest levels sprang at all time high with artist Jo Mckye’s day to day work on painting a girl named Zenna. But Jo doesn’t have a clue who this Zenna girl is. Jo lost her memory three years ago.

My mind boggled as I was turning the pages looking for clues as to who Zenna could be and why Jo named the girl in her painting Zenna.

I loved this ebook so much I would most definitely be delighted to read another book by this author.

Here was everything in this haunting novel that I loved, with twists and turns that led me gripped as the minutes ticked by.


Painting Zenna over and over wasn’t intentional. In the beginning, I had no concept of what I was creating, I just allowed the paints to flow, the ideas to flower. An almost ethereal creature materialised before me. Like a sprite or fairy. So different from my usual style. I relished every session, couldn’t wait to get home from work and throw on my painting shirt. It was exhilarating. Usually a portrait is planned. The subject has commissioned you because they’re aware of your work and like it, or you’ve sought out fascinating faces and pleaded with them to sit for you. You’ll have taken photos to work from or have them posing in front of you. Not so with the woman who appeared beneath my brush I had no clue who she was.

I would like to thank Zoe for sending me the ebook to my kindle to read and review and for very kindly inviting me to take part in the blog tour.
